Seven Attitude Adjustments for Finding a Loving Man

Seven Attitude Adjustments for Finding a Loving Man

You know you're fine. Plus, you have a decent job, a nice place to live. You're smart and ambitious. So, where's your man?
Because you're so well pulled together and without a partner, you may have developed an attitude toward men. Believe it or not, men can sense what you think of them. For instance, when you meet a man do you evaluate him as a possible partner or do you think of him as a potential friend? If you become open to him as a friend you may learn something from him that will forever enrich your life. Or he may ultimately become your lifelong partner or introduce you to him. The key is openness, and you can't be receptive to love when an attitude creates a barrier around you.
Renowned relationship therapist Audrey B. Chapman identifies the subtle attitudes Black women harbor that prevent us from finding love and happiness. Without even knowing it we can be controlling, materialistic, cynical, desperate, and even hostile. Chapman shows us how to take time for ourselves -- to figure out the exact traits we're looking for in a man to enable relationships to become learning experiences, not jumping-off points for developing resentment. She tells us how to evaluate potential partners so that we don't repeat the same mistakes. She also offers insightful and refreshing tips on how to meet and marry the man of our dreams.

One afternoon, we'd just finished talking about Yolanda Joe's He Say, She Say, a novel about black relationships that switches back and forth between the male and female characters' points of view. Reading about how differently the men and women viewed their relationships naturally got everyone thinking about their own situations.
