(Don't) b too picky...

My girl Ang passed along this article about black women, dating, and the possibility of our unrealistic standards. It's a good one! Go 'head and preach

Excerpt from "What Single Women Can Learn from Michelle"

Holding out for the perfect man, someone who is intellectual but not nerdy—cool but not arrogant—impeccably dressed but not effeminate—not a player but with just the right amount of edge—is useless. Smart can go with a little nerdy. Artsy can be accompanied by off-beat. Ambitious and focused may mean less than a social butterfly. Yes, there was that one guy in law school who was easily 6’5’’, a Rhodes Scholar and a rapper, with a baby face to top things off. I’m not saying it’s impossible, but please!

Cute, I'll have to send this link to my friend. We always talk laugh about no one being able to stand up to our list.

Thanks for the quote.
