Learn from our African Sisters – Don’t Limit Yourself!


It’s always been a goal of mine to get to Africa, so I decided to book a ticket there and I’ve been traveling this gorgeous country for a few weeks.

Besides the landscape, animals, and the inexpensive good food, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by what I’ve seen on the relationship front in Africa.

Naturally, most of the couples I am seeing in Africa are black women and black men, and white men with white women, but when I do see interracial couples the amount of black women with white men and other non-black men, was about twice that of the other combination.

I had wrongly assumed it would be the other way around, but my eyes aren’t lying: African women seem to have grasped and embraced the concept of allowing themselves to date freely.

By the way, the women ran the gamut – from light skinned to dark skinned, from afro’d, to long curly hair, to braids, to weave, from thin and slim to va-va-voom.

One point of note is that most of the couples did seem to be in their early thirties and older with children, and as I am staying in a hotel it could be that many of these African women live elsewhere and are coming back home for the holidays.

I wonder if there has been a BWE push in their community or if their culture/mothers have taught them the importance of dating and marrying well. Do you guys know anything about this phenomenon? Share it in the comments below.
