    He’s my kind of man.  I hope he’s in more episodes!

  • ReesyPiecey

    I really like Demetrius…. He seems genuine and smart…and obviously the type of man you settle down with…. Hope he finds a good woman as well

  • Babee

    I love his name.

  • ok_dayumm

    Demetrius seems to be a well rounded man and marriage material. I wonder if “Ask a Black mam” can ask Demetrius to give his opinion on why he’s not married yet? Or if you read the comments…Demetrius…

    • Ms. G

      I was thinking the same thing. He seems great but if you are so great you mean to tell me in 43years of life he hasn’t encountered a woman he would like to spend his life with hhhmmm. Unless he is divorce then I understand. I am always leery about men over 35 who have never been married. With that said though he is one of my favorites :). 

  • Ms. T

    I was more intrigued after I watched the video. He definitely has a presence about him! I liked his quote about specificity being the basis for agreement. 

  • Ms_Mara

    I like him! About to watch the latest episode of Ask a Black Man now.

    “Being a male is a matter of birth. Being a man is a matter of choice.” — E. L. Cole. Solid bio btw. I look forward to hearing Demetrius’ opinions.
