I love the way this site is coming along! I've been following Black Junction for a while now & every time I've logged in after a while of inactivity, I've been impressed with the new updates. I have done what I could to spread the word about this site & have even encouraged others to sign up.
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
There is an obvious divide in the communication of black men and black women. In my opinion, this divide is a result of speaking to each other from a place of not fully understanding before speaking and not asking questions that lead to answers that allow us to speak from a place of better understanding. We make strong suggestions to each other before adequately evaluating each another enough to break down where you feel the other has flaws and/or where you can help. Not only does this cause one to speak from a place of an eagerness to interject; making one appear as arrogant or controlling, especially when it's the male who is on the receiving end, but it also causes a lot of confusion and frustration, which can lead to hurt feelings, that lead to intentions to hurt feelings...or even worse. Now, I fully understand the importance of making a good first impression. But, if one is going to involve themselves in any type of relationship with another, I believe it would be better, if we don't verbalize or internalize our first impressions of each other, until we can do so with a substantial evaluation of multiple relative situations.
