Next Tuesday marks my 14th wedding anniversary! My hubby and I have been together for almost 20 years and Lord knows I’m still in love. The #1 reason why we have been together for so long and are the best of friends is because our lines of communication are always open. We are in constant conversation about any and everything; from world news to our oldest child’s latest school project; we talk about it all. During the summer while our children were away with my mom we rekindled some of that conversation and would chat about our future late into the night. I love that man so much and wish that all of my sister friends could be as blessed as I am.
This brings me to the latest book written by Hill Harper (you know that fine Black actor from CSI:NY and classmate of President Obama) THE CONVERSATION is a title written for African American singles and is all about relationships. Hill speaks about the things that need to be done before finding a good relationship; and about the finger pointing that takes place in our community that are untrue and hurtful such as: “There are no good Black men out there” or “All black men are players” or “Black women are negative or too independent” or “Black women are gold diggers.” he says that these staments are general and lump people into categories and have been very destructive.”
Hill also speaks about having an honest conversation with yourself. A conversation with self is a major step in figuring out what you want in a mate. You must ask yourself the hard questions and be truthful with your wants, needs and desires.
If you are ready to start the conversation please enter this contest to win a copy of the book.
I’m offerring 4 copies to a random commenter who answers the question “The worst pick up line you’ve ever heard/used” i.e. what is a fine woman like you doing in a place like this?”
This contest closes Friday 10/8. I can’t wait to see your entries!

Until next time…
Disclosure: I’ve been compensated for my time and efforts to help spread the word about Hill’s book. I think this book topic is one that needs to be had in every community not just African American but because I am a Black woman I agreed to promote this book in hopes that my single friends can gain some insight on what they need to do to meet and marry their God created mate.
