A poll was conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard School of Public Health yielded some interesting findings. Their results about the dating lives of single African Americans (respondents 18-49, widowed, divorced, or never married) recently found that single Black men were much more likely to say they were looking for a long-term relationship (43 percent) compared to single black women (25 percent).
There are many possible explanations and theories about these results. Maybe the benefits of long-term relationships are obvious. The bottom line is:
Question your assumptions about Black relationships. Stereotypes and myths prevail and this is just one more piece of evidence to demonstrate the fact that Black men desire loving, long-term relationships, too. Maybe even more so than Black women.
