QUESTION: "Why did the two of you start this blog? And, why should women listen to you?"
Garland: From my perspective, we started this blog because far too many good women are allowing themselves to be held back and held down by undeserving men. Now, don't think this is going to be a man bashing blog, because it's not! Chuck and I are positive guys, we're family guys, and we're good guys. We know that there are MANY good men out there - strong, decent men that will show ladies the respect they deserve. What we intend to do with this blog, is help women separate the good men from the bad ones. Many times, many frustrating times - we've seen women miss the most obvious signs of trouble in dating and relationships and we've gotten tired of it. So, we want to help. We want to share men's insights into dating, relationships, sex, love, lust and everything in between.
Why should anyone listen? Because the opinions and advice we'll give - will be candid, proven and most of all reliable. Come back from time to time and check us out. You'll see that Oprah, Dr. Laura and Dr. Phil have nothing on Chuck and Garland.
Chuck: Ditto. No, really, too often have Garland and myself seen women (and men) acting in ways counter to their best interests and crossing their fingers and hoping that things work out for the best. I've always thought that everybody could do better than that.
I look forward to this being a positive experience for us. And I hope to maintain an open mind as we exchange ideas. At this point, I feel that the lack of three things can bring about the failure of most relationships: communication, trust, and common sense. As time goes on, I may change my mind.
What are my credentials? Um... What are YOUR credentials? Leave me alone. Seriously, I'm no psychologist or anything, but I am happy in my relationship with a strong Black woman, and I want to do what I can to help other people to that same happiness, however they define it. At any rate, if we can't offer any enlightenment , maybe we can offer some entertainment. Please send us any questions or feedback you have.
