Please help welcome Cousin Mars to the Triple B family!

He’s arrived, y’all! Triple B’s first (and only) anonymous male contributor — above — has blessed us with his first post. Read, share and then read again.

Call me Cousin Mars…because I am now part of the Black Bridal Bliss family. The new season brings a slight change to Triple B. You guys now have a reason to look forward to Final Fridays – A Mars Point of View. I expect Triple B followers to soon understand why I was chosen to lend my opinion on a monthly basis. Who knows? Maybe you’ll request to hear from me more than just monthly.

Why me? Is that what you’re asking? I’ll share a bit and hope to receive your approval. I’m from, and currently reside in, New York City. I have lived here all but nine years of my life. My impressionable years were spent living in two neighborhoods that will probably never make the Best Neighborhoods to Live list, but my mom did her best to keep me busy and out of trouble (her plan worked much more than it failed). My parents divorced when I was very young. As a result I was raised by a young and super (potentially too much) independent woman who was hell bent on raising a confident, independent, and educated man. I am now rapidly approaching the mid-30s (yikes!). I’m a college graduate, entrepreneur and pescatarian (just thought you should know) that has yet to get married or have children. My closest friends now realize I’m probably a boardwalk stroll or a holiday ring sale away from getting engaged. So, you’re probably still asking why me? I am extremely good at people and situation reading and posses an effective ability to keep emotion and personal opinion apart from decision making and advice giving. Although I am, and have always been, a heterosexual male I frequent BBB regularly. Most, or at least half, of my friends are female. Yes…they are just friends (no benefits!). Within my core group of friends, slightly more than half are married and/or have children.

I plan to offer a different perspective on topics that are relevant to you. Based on the recent poll, asking what topics you are most interested in hearing from a male perspective, I will provide insight on issues that matter to you. So, stay tuned. I look forward to chatting with you next on October 26th. Remember…Final Friday’s – A Mars Point of View!

  Soooo…whatcha think? You guys are still a little shy with leaving me comments but please don’t hold back with Cousin Mars. He needs your feedback to help me finalize future blog topics.
