This past summer, my husband and I drove all the way from Boston, MA to Miami, FL. Being the fun couple that we are, we decided to do a fun exercise. I asked my husband to come up with his top three “turn offs” in women so I could write a fun blog post. Since we were on the road and making frequent stops, (we were driving with our three year old son and our and six year daughter) we turned it into a fun project . We asked random Black men what they felt were “turn offs” in their past or present relationships and we boiled it down to 25 main points.
The purpose of the list is not to insult and offend Black women, but instead, it is supposed to be a fun way for any woman to take an inventory of herself with a desire to be honest about what she could do to become a better version of herself. To be honest, there were a couple of points on the list that had me giggling because I knew I was “guilty”.
