You know you're fine. 
Plus, you have a decent job, a nice place to live. 
You're smart and ambitious. 
So... where's your man?
Because you're so well pulled together and without a partner, you may have developed an attitude toward men. Believe it or not, men can sense what you think of them. For instance, when you meet a man, do you evaluate him as a possible partner or do you think of him as a potential friend? If you become open to him as a friend you may learn something from him that will forever enrich your life. Or he may ultimately become your lifelong partner or introduce you to him. The key is openness and you can't be receptive to love when an attitude creates a barrier around you.

In Seven Attitude Adjustments for Finding a Loving Man, renowned relationship therapist Audrey B. Chapman identifies the subtle attitudes Black women harbor that prevent us from from finding love and happiness. Without even knowing it we can be controlling, materialistic, cynical, desperate, and even hostile. Chapman shows us how to take time for ourselves—to figure out the exact traits we're looking for in a man to enable relationships to become learning experiences, not jumping-off points for developing resentment. She tells us how to evaluate potential partners so that we don't repeat the same mistakes. She also offers insightful and refreshing tips on how to meet and marry the man of our dreams.
