True story: A beautiful young black woman and a handsome young black man met at a mutual friend’s cookout and immediately clicked. They had brunch for their first date. The handsome young man’s credit card was declined AND he didn’t have enough cash to cover the bill. The beautiful young black woman had to chip in her cash.
They had a second date.
And many more after that. In fact, René and Charles (the beautiful young black woman and the handsome young black man, respectively) just got married! Check out the adorable New York Times video of them talking about that awkward first date moment and how their relationship blossomed. Too cute! (Side note: Don’t you just love to see black folks in the New York Times wedding section?)
But real talk ladies, how many of you would give a brotha a second date after his credit card was declined on the first date and on top of that he didn’t have any other means to pay the bill?
