black coupleDating is one of the most complicated pastimes of single people.  It can also be one of the most exciting and fun.  There is so much made in the community and in the media about the issues facing black male-female relationships that certainly one could devote a whole website to it. 

In fact there are many websites and black online dating sites dedicated to this topic, but there is one particular website I would recommend related to dating.

Surviving Dating! ( is a website that contains a wealth of information about dating from both the male and female perspective.  The fact that both the male and female points of view are represented is the key because fellas, whether we want to believe it or not, all the things we don’t know about dating the women do.  From the biggest baller to the man with all the swag, every black man has SOMETHING to learn about dating from a black woman
