This is so exciting! I've never watched a GAG interview or a live event that happened on here! While I know you're going to get a lot of questions regarding dating in general, I had a few questions about relationships I wanted to hear your perspective on. Feel free to pick any number of them that's interesting for you to answer! If there is a question here that someone already asked, feel free to skip it if it's going to be answered anyways:
1) In terms of compatibility, what information should you know from your partner or the person you're dating to determine if you can have a happy long-term relationship/marriage with them or not?
2) Do you believe a lack of education has anything to do with marriage percentages dropping in the USA over the past 15 years?
3) If you set your expectations for a partner too high and can't find anyone after a good period of time, should you still keep your expectations high to avoid complications in the relationship you want to pursue or should you lower them to have more options for a potential date available to you?
4) Is it possible to live a life without a relationship; without becoming an emotionally bitter person from a lack of personal affection/love to give and receive from a special someone you romantically want to be with?
5) When it comes to meeting someone online who lives nearby for a potential date, would it be better to get to know them through conversations by text messaging and video/voice chat first before the first date happens in person or would it be better to simply meet and learn about them in person first?
6) What do you believe the main reason is for all the people that cheat in relationships? Does it have to do with a lack of compatibility with their partner or commitment in general?
Thank you for your time reading this! I look forward to the event coming up and seeing which questions you'll answers for the community around here :)

What’s the difference between Hollywood and Real Life in 2019 in terms of physical contact on the first few dates?
Romance novels, fairy tales, movies, and tv shows seem to follow a formula when 2 strangers meet and for the most part there is limited physical touch in the beginning. Even the shows that have a few dates usually end with a hug and/or awkward kiss on the cheek as the audience sees both people don’t quite know their feelings and more importantly don’t know the other person’s feelings yet. So if we want to follow that formula it would make sense to focus on fun and getting to know someone on the first 3 dates. They teach us that emotions build over time and even some movies use the word love before they even kiss.

1.) How to express attraction to white men?
I completely clump into a ball if a white man tries to talk to me, or I see a handsome guy. The first fear I feel is my race will instantly turn him off. People dont grasp that black women have been considered the ugliest race of women, being referred to as apes and coons since we were brought over way when. We look so different from the perfect white woman icon, that I have a hard time believing a white guy would consider me over their pretty white women.
It always gets the best of me, and I can't open up enough to flirt or show interest.
White guys have expressed a similar fear, that we may not like them due to black men being bigger and flashier.. so me not being open enough, probably makes an interested white guy, think Im not 😒
I feel really pretty, but never pretty enough for them. My personality is docile mostly, but I do have that black girl flare and fiestiness too. So Im thinking he is going to think Im ghetto and be embarassed.
Its really hard. No one seems to get what it feels like to have many bad stereotypes hovering around you, being insecure about your racial features, and loving the exact opposite of what you're supposed to.
What can I do?
Heck yeah, let me get my list of questions ready for you sir!
You know I'm going to give you some challenging ones...
•Looking at the dating scene, along with sexual culture now (one night stands, hookups, fwbs) you think it's worth it for people seeking a monogamous relationship to even bother looking for a relationship?
•What advice would you give someone that's pretty much given up on love and trying to find a relationship?
•What advice would you give to women about what we should know about men (can be anything in general you think would be useful)
•Why is it so difficult for some people to say they've lost interest in you or no longer want to date you?
By that I mean a person guys from talking to you daily and wanting a relationship with you, to talking to you less and less, making up excuses as to why things won't work out, or ghosting you... rather than just saying s/he doesn't want to be with you.
•In your opinion, is it easier to be single or in a relationship, and why? Assume both parties are happy with their relationship status.
