Hey guys, gays, and gworls! I’m back at it like a crack addict with a review on a web series by the name of ‘Single Man Problems.’
With iconic New York City as its backdrop, “Single Man Problems” peels back the curtain into the fickle world of millennial online dating through the lens of a 20 something, self-conscious gay black man named Ronnie. Sleeping on the couch in his best friend’s apartment, Ronnie refines the art of catfishing the perfect date while maneuvering color-ism. This explosively funny yet significant series unpacks and educates its audiences in the modern-day themes associated with courting inside the Black, Gay, and heterosexual communities.
Single Man Problems was something that really stood out to me when I first watched it because of how it establishes comedy while keeping the seriousness of each episode’s theme without it seeming too cluttered. It seems that I was able to resonate with Ronnie’s character heavily. To be honest, anyone could resonate and/or relate to all the characters. You could be a helpless romantic ready for marriage, a single man looking for the “one”, someone who’s closed off, or someone who just hates people. Regardless, you can relate to all the characters, and that’s what I like about it.
Although this show has characters you can resonate with, the plot is a little hard to keep up with. Once you catch up with the plot it’s great, but no one really wants to play catch-up. With each episode, there’s a time-jump that you’re not aware of until 2-3 minutes in. Aside from this, I don’t have any issues with the show.
As a single gay, black man, how are you navigating through every day and dating life?
