Question 2: [1:33:54] - “Why am I still single I’m a traditional girl from the south and since moving to Los Angeles, I can’t seem to find a guy who’s on the same page. I’m sure a lot of it has to do with me being African American and wanting to marry an African American man as well. The eligible pool is just so small here, with many of them being from bad families, too liberal or unambitious dreamers. I am being told that I am making myself too available and that I need to play hard to get. This is tough for me because I am naturally affirming and accommodating. My being nice and wanting to make a guy feel good doesn’t mean I’m in love with him just that I think he’s a nice guy. The idea that I’m supposed to date a guy but not like him or make it known that I’d like to settle down in the near future and just be some big ball of fun while going dutch or footing the bill on dates AND having sex with these men with no promise of a future together sounds absolutely crazy to me but I can’t for the life of me figure out what I’m doing wrong, maybe I’m the dreamer?”
Question 3: [2:15:33] – “Recently, I listened to your segment ‘Why I rejected religion’ and was particularly taken in by your personal testimony of what you considered to be reasons for why religion failed you, and why you propose that God may not be good enough. Given your current scope of influence in motivating people to think and reason more effectively, with a view to preserve freedom in the western civilization and even mankind, could it be that your seemingly unhappy and even tortured childhood be something that God put you through as a means to build your character up to serve Him, only if you desire to do so? Would that possibly even offer comfort and sense to the childhood that God had you endure, so you can be what you are today? And could reconciliation with Him therefore grant you even more blessings when you are right with Him?"
Question 4: [2:43:37] - “I am 22 years old and I am in a committed relationship with a man that I love very Much. We started our own online business together this year and so far it is going great! My grandma doesn't seem to understand that just because I now work from, that doesn't mean that I can drop everything and go spend all of my time with her. Every since I was a little girl, I have always wanted my grandmas love and attention but I rarely received it. If I am too busy to go spend an entire day with her, she holds it against me and passively threatens to not call me anymore. My relationship with my grandma means a lot to me and I don't want to lose her, but how can I establish boundaries with her so that I don't have to feel pressured and obligated to spend all of my time with her and neglect my business?”
