Black Singles Group
Tiffany: How did you meet your boyfriend?
Millicent: He and I met in the Black Singles group on Facebook called Real Black Love Movement.
Tiffany: I’m sure there were other guys reaching out to you. What made him special?
Millicent: In November 2019, he respectfully introduced himself on Facebook messenger. He told me I was beautiful and explained that he wanted to take the time and get to know me.
Tiffany: How often do you see each other?
Millicent: We have never physically met.
Tiffany: Wow, you have never seen each other? When will you all meet?
Tiffany: This relationship is fairly new. How is the communication in your relationship?
Millicent: Although he has a thick accent, I can understand him very well. Sometimes we have miscommunication when we use various phrases. For example, I made a comment and he responded by saying, “Whatever you say”. I had to clarify to see where that statement was coming from. When we have misunderstandings we try to see each others point of view.
Tiffany: What do you all do to keep the romance alive since you don’t reside in the same location?
Millicent: What’s App is our main method of communication. We often send love letters, write poems and exchange pictures. Every morning, he sends me an encouraging Good Morning text. For my birthday in December, he sent me a love package with included chocolates, fabric, clothes, and jewelry.
Does he want a Green Card?
Tiffany: Would you ever relocate to Ghana?
Millicent: Yes I would relocate. I would prefer to spend 6 months here in Texas as I own my own home. I would like to spend the next 6 months in Accra as he is in the Logistics industry and has a business selling Fabric and textile.
