#7. Doomed Romance Is Gonna Get You
This was the post series where love went to die. Featuring the tales of actual BlackSnob readers as well as my own stories, Doomed Romance was all about love that just didn’t work out no matter how badly you wanted it to.
Here’s a sample from one story:
I both want him to be the one and don’t want him to be the one. If he is the one I think of all the things I need and want that I will have to learn to live without. And I don’t want that. If he isn’t the one I wonder if I will ever met a man like him again in a million years. So brilliant yet so conflicted. So fascinating and memorizing. He’s like a novel that I’d love to read over and over again. He’s amazingly complex in all the ways I like. He’s intelligent, spiritual, independent, strong sense of self, mature, logical … most of the time, physically strong, nice teeth, beautiful hair, dark skin and patient. He loves animals. He loves his people – in a love/hate sort of way. He’s honorable in a way that most men are not honorable anymore.
But is he what I want?
