Don't be stubborn when it comes to love, Essence's Kevin Carr tells black women. He aims to shine a spotlight on the most-ignored types of Mr. Rights.

Mr. Nice Guy

Confession: I had to get over my own "nice guys finish last" complex here. Every woman that I have every sent flowers to, turned out not to be as interested in me as I was her. Talk about a deterrent! In all seriousness, when a guy has genuine interest, he can't help but to show it. …

Mr. Friend Zone

He's smart, funny and you guys have great conversation. That sounds like chemistry to me. Close friends know you in a way that your partners hope to. Not only do they know you, but they accept you too
