As I scrolled through social media this morning, I came across the above meme.
It was one of those viral memes that gets shared and altered among the masses.
You don't know who created it (Sorry, I'm not sure to whom I should attribute credit) or even why they created it.
All you know is it resonates with you and is probably applicable to some aspect of your life.
In my case, the reason is I am 30 and single. ***Inserts dark, scary music**
To clarify, I am dating someone exclusively, but I’m not married.
So, technically, I’m still single.
According to society, that’s a scary situation.
I regularly come across articles addressing the issue.
I’ve even covered the subject myself.
To summarize, the perception is times are tough in the love department for single, black women.
It can cause rifts where there previously were none and impede the natural, relaxed progression of love then marriage.
We women are busy and don’t have time to waste on someone who does not share our relationship goals.
However, based on my experiences and the experiences of many other women, it seems some men don’t share that same aversion to wasted time.
Time is a precious commodity.
Let’s not waste it on people and things that don’t meet our wants and needs.

I’d love to hear your input! Guys are welcome!
