Perusing - Rejouer

Having had a minor surgical procedure on my ankle Friday, I've spent the weekend lying on the sofa watching television and making the most of a rare opportunity to be "Queen Of All She Surveys" and a Lady of Leisure. A commercial came on that reminded me of a popular post I did a couple of years ago. And since I have gained many new readers since then, and not feeling like hobbling across the house to write a new post, I thought I'd rewind it for those who weren't around at the the time of original post. Enjoy.....

Online dating services are now a dime a dozen. And while I would never partake in an adventure like that myself, I have often wondered what it's like to put a profile of yourself out there for strangers to see while trying to woo a potential love interest. During a break in a movie last night, a commercial for Black People came on the television. The gears started to spin.

Having become an expert at shooting down unwanted advances by black men, I wondered what a profile on this all black dating website might look like, so I took a look for myself.....
