Millennials Dating ChroniclesA Web Docu-Series
"...the black men were mean to me. Then I was only interested in white men, but they weren't interested in me...I didn't go outside cuz I didn't want to get darker...I hated anything associated with being a "black girl". I didn't have many black friends...I only dated white guys, cuz they
"...I did have someone like that in my life that I was not attracted to at first - at all. He was very persistent. But he became my friend! But the thing that was very attractive about him was that he believed that he would eventually win me over but he wasn't trying to rush me to that point."
"...someone calls me to verify these 5 law students. I know 4, but I don't know this 5th name so I googled her. And I'm like, 'OH MY GOD, when I get there I gotta find her!'. So at the conference, I'm registering people. Her name tag is in front of me. But someone sends me on an errand. When I get back her name tag is gone. But she's here tho..."
"...my thing for 2018, 'be direct', 'Shot your shot - 2018', that's my hashtag. So I gotta be direct. There is no time for small talk. So I just said, "Would you like to go on a coffee date?".

Pursuing Purpose While Dating
I believe everybody has a purpose for their life. When the purpose of your life is aligned with your passion, that’s when you have the greatest impact on the people and community you serve.
MILLENNIALS…While they are trying to figure out how to pursue their purpose and build and build careers as adults, they are also trying to figure out this big ball of confusion…called dating. When to date? Who to date? Are they bae material, or is it just game? When should I have sex? What if I don’t even wanna have sex?
All these things Millennials have to figure out while trying to pursue their purpose. But they don’t have to figure this out alone. We can help – by connecting them to stories.
Researchers have discovered that stories motive. They inspire. They provide hope and encouragement. Seeing someone in the same spade as you, fighting thru their issues, makes you feel connected – that you’re alone. And that you too can overcome your challenges.
So that’s why I doing this documentary – chronically stories of how Millennials go thru life, trying to pursue their purpose – while navigating this tricky arena – called dating.
