For those of you wondering who am I and why the blog…
Why the blog? The Misadventures of Ms. Not-Right-Now is dedicated to that something-or-other-percent of black women who aren’t married–yet. Whether you’re single because there supposedly aren’t any good black men left or because they simply haven’t changed the gay marriage laws in your state, I call us girls Ms. Not-Right-Nows! We’re somewhere navigating the in-betweens of new age philosophies and good ole tradition. We’ve got marriage on one hand and casual sex on the other. We’re the poster girls for stuck between a rock and a hard place. But there’s got to be some broom jumping at the end of the dating tunnel right? I birthed this blog because I am an advocate for long-term dating with the intent to get married–especially in the black community where so much has happened to tear the black man and woman apart. I believe a life long commitment to one black man is my present and my future. So consider this blog my reflections on the road to that destiny. Will you join me on my quest for holy matrimony?
Who is Ms. Not-Right-Now? She’s in you. She’s in me. She is we.
***I am a woman but this blog in no way intentionally leaves out the thoughts, feelings, and desires of the Mr. Right-For-Nows of the world. I love men–and I came from a man– therefore this blog is just as much for you as it is for me.
