The Power Struggle

A Common Issue Between Black Men & Black Women

The Power Struggle

Hey, my name is Arielle. I am the founder of StraightBlackLove.com - a dating app which aims to connect serious, marriage-minded black singles worldwide.
I created the Straight Black Blog to share stories and issues pertaining to the black community, black relationships and healing. 

If you'd like to contribute to the blog please get in contact - always happy to have guest bloggers!

African music with all the vast genres and forms is a true cultural force to reckon with, that’s why it attracts one of the largest attendances worldwide. With millions of congregations from both the motherlands natives and Diaspora revelers brought together by the love of Afro sound and connection to their cultural roots through music. Despite our music consumption being rapidly digitalized through the internet and streaming Giants, nothing feels close to the live sound experience of the African music, you simply can fabricate this electrifying experience.

Ever since you walked out of her life, her every moment is spent praying that you would somehow show up for her again.

Whatever she does, whoever she talks to, or how busy she tries to be, doesn’t matter much, her thoughts of you always linger in her mind.

Black singles in the African American community often complain that they can’t find other black singles, even though we are literally everywhere! Or that the black people around them don’t date black. This is always my cue to offer them to sign up to Straight Black Love, of course.. but if you just want to meet new people out and about and have a better experience in general within the United States, maybe you just need to relocate?

As a dating and relationships blogger, I have learned that the routine boring and traditional ways of getting to know more about each other as a black couple can slow down connections and weaken relationships.

Instead of conforming to the usual predictable routine, it is far better to participate in activities that have been scientifically proven to improve and strengthen your stand as a black couple and build more attraction to your spouse while strengthening the mutual bond that you both share. The following are workable ideas that you can both tailor to adapt to your style as a black couple.

I know what you’re thinking “let’s have sex” but no, not those three words… while this suggestion, coming from a black woman may be the most intense sex-inducing words she can say, but in the deeper context of love sexy runs way deeper than intimate sex
