Over This Past Weekend. I cross paths with a handsome gentlemen as i was on my way home from the movie with a girlfriend (The Notorious Movie).
Anyway, The Gentle asked if he could converse with me for a moment or so and I obliged simply because he was nice looking, very well mannered and new exactly how to approach a young woman. I loved it! Anyway, He was definitely a humorous, employed, well-dressed and well spoken young man. The conversation went on for several minutes and that's when he hit me with the fact that he currently has 3 children, by 3 different mothers, and one of those children will be graduating from elementary school. Of course I am very cordial and did not show an ounce of shock on my face, or in my responses, but in my mind that was a "deal breaker" for me. I mean I am only 26 years old. The last thing I want is to be involved with someone who has a few kids and nearly have my age...NO THANKS!!!!
Needless to say, I will be putting him in the "friend box". I found this encounter so ironic simply because I had just read a very interesting blog post on http://blkbond.blogspot.com/ posted by The Black Bond and being the vocal and opinionated young woman I am, I responded to his post stating how individuals should focus more on character instead of material possessions. Now granted my turn off had nothing to do with materialistic or monetary issues, I still felt a little guilty by dismissing the brother due to being a father of 3. So, I kinda feel just as bad as those I discussed in my response to black bond. You all should check his post. Happy Monday!!!
