Finding a Partner after 40: A Conversation with Black Folks”
Black Daddies Club will be celebrating our 16th year anniversary with a panel discussion entitled “Finding a Partner after 40: A Conversation with Black Folks”, this event will be engaging Black men from North America on their experiences around dating in heterosexual or LGBTQ2S+ communities. The event will also engage Black therapists that will speak about the macro challenges and opportunities for Black folks looking for love or partnership after the age of 40.
The event will take place at a location in Toronto, Canada, that will be announced in the coming months.
Over the 16 years of Black Daddies Club, I have seen changes in the Black men and Black fathers that we have worked with, I have also seen the changes in myself. One of the major changes was going through a divorce after a 16 year relationship with my ex-wife and subsequent 6 year long term relationship that followed. Now I am single and not sure if I am ready to mingle. The dating scene after age 40 seems confusing, sometimes horrific and has shifted a good bit, since I was last single, the biggest shift is the introduction to dating apps, which feels like everyone is disposable and that not enough people have done the work of healing from past trauma.
Finding a Partner after 40: A Conversation with Black Folks will be a panel discussion exploring the experiences of various Black folks from various entry points into their Blackness talking about what it is like dating, finding love or finding a partner in this day and age.
