When A Man “Sweats” A Woman. Why I Love Eric Payne

Recently, my girlfriend and I were lamenting the good ole days when a man wanted you and wasn’t afraid to show it. Before the posturing, playing games, “The Rules” and everyone acting too cool to care, brothers would “sweat” a sister.

And hard.

Maybe we brought this new sad state of affairs on ourselves, with one “brother please” head roll or Vulkan death stare too many, but I sure miss those days. That’s why I love our new Blogfather, Eric Payne.

Eric is smart, handsome and writes a hell of a post at makesmewannaholler.com and now for Mocha Manual but he also never misses an opportunity to talk about how much he loves his wife. How fine she is. How she rocked his world. And how he was not going to let his preconceived biases about dating a woman with a child allow him to lose her. I feel that.

His wife, Nadja is indeed beautiful inside and out. But what’s equally striking is Eric’s candid insights on becoming a dad before a husband and taking on responsibility of fathering another man’s child. His willingness to open up and share his vulnerabilities, insights and strengths at a time when Black fatherhood is in need of more powerful voices.

Lately, I’ve been starting to feel that those kind of black men are an extinct species. Only to be found in the Museum of Unnatural History. So I’m thankful to Eric for proving me wrong.

Check out Eric’s latest fatherhood post and pictures of his beautiful wife here. And ladies if you’ve got a man who still sweats you, please y’all, say thank you. It’s so easy to let life and the bills and the kids crowd these things out. Better yet send a few beads of perspiration his way too.

In motherhood,
Kimberly
