He’s a newbie to interracial dating, and apparently read SWIRLING in two days. Here’s what he wrote me yesterday: I just received your message on my blog.
I must say, I’m flattered that you would contact me regardless of the situation.
I just have found in my 31 years of dating that when a man dates me he is floored by just how real I keep it.
Just a reminder that we are the premiere site for Southern Singles to meet other desirable Southern Singles.
She was also twenty-two and looking to move soon, so she seemed to me to be a commitment-phobe.
He brought it on himself when he declared Charleston "a playground for men who don't want to grow up," and truly, none of his castmates seem to pursue the life of leisure with such gusto.
She's going to monogram the ever-living crap out of everything you own. She's in nine weddings this year, serving punch at four, and invited to 11 more. And speaking of weddings, you had better remember where you buried the bourbon.
Shep is the fratboy you wanted to date in college but couldn't pin down: he's tall, handsome, witty, smart, and a touch goofy.
Where ladies are concerned, Shep says he "…yearns for freedom, like William Wallace." But like all charming playboys, Shep hints at the possibility of settling down.
You, personally, have shaped much of my (albeit brand-new) outlook on the world of interracial dating; and, on the subject of black women in particular. Single ladies, (especially our BB&W Staff) take some notes!
In fact, it was you who inspired me to start my own blog! I can not tell you how unbelievably fulfilling it is to know that you produced something that changes the course of someone’s life–even if it’s just their love life. Well, I’m new to swirling, so I can’t provide a whole lot of insight just yet, but I can say that it’s interesting! It seems like the women I’ve spoken to are really interested right off the bat, and then cool off really quickly. I think women are reluctant to start something that could potentially turn serious, as relates to interracial dating.
Most of these etiquette rules apply to dating anyone or any sex, and some are a bit outdated.
