Description

Tired of hearing (and believing) the lies that the media and your own sister friends keep feeding you: that good black love is an impossibility, that all the best men are either married, gay, or sell out on their own kind? If so, it’s time to get stripped. Welcome to the best and most practical relationship advice you’ll ever receive. . . .

Host of “The Love Zone,” Baltimore’s #1 urban radio relationship show, LaDawn Black has made it her mission to enlighten her African American sisters on finding and keeping quality black men. Stripped Bare is the blueprint of that mission: a relationship guide that, unlike any other, asks you–a smart, modern woman– to take inventory of your own life in order to land the man of your dreams.

Leave the blame and the baggage behind. This take-charge manifesto shows you how to be the kind of person who’ll attract the men that you deserve. With these twelve proven truths that LaDawn and her own friends have put to the test, you’ll challenge self-defeating ways of thinking and living and position yourself for enduring love. From letting go of the past and gaining a sense of fun to living for you and breaking the girlfriend chain (those negative friends who keep you and your expectations low), Stripped Bare lays out the tools you’ll need–and the directions for how to use them to your greatest romantic advantage.

Filled with personal anecdotes that illustrate each truth, this wise, amusing, and candid guide will help you break the cycle of dead-end relationships (hint: it’s a whole lot easier than you realized) and embrace that sexy, loving guy who’s always been within your reach.
