What single women can learn from Michelle O.

Filed under: Celebrities,Psychology — posted by Breakup Girl @ 12:10 pm

Writing in today’s WaPo, Jenée Desmond-Harris wonders: “It’s easy to see now that [Barack Obama] was a great catch, but how many of us would have been open to this guy who strayed so far from the black Prince Charming ideal, starting with his very name?” Her exhortation: “[I]f black women are going to defy the statistics, they need to start being more realistic. 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.” Read the piece, then let us know: just another scolding for the “picky“* among us, or does Desmond-Harris have a point?

* “picky,” as in: about the person with whom you’re going to spend the rest of your life

  4. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong
    none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for
    about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, excellent website!

    and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with
    the same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
