In his song How Can We Be Lovers, Michael Bolton poses the question ‘How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends?’ Ooh! Ooh! I know! The answer is: YOU CAN’T!
People always say they’re in love, dating or married to their best friends. So, how do you introduce them to others? Let’s think this through.
Who do you talk to when you’re feeling down? Who do you share your deepest, darkest secrets with? And who do you go to about your love life? Your best friend, right? So, on the flip side. Who do you go to to about troubles with your best friend? Who’s shoulder do you cry on about the job? Money matters? Your goals and dreams? Your lover, yes? Well, what if they are one in the same? Who do you turn to? Who are you talking to and who’s talking back? If you’re angry at one, who’s going to be there for you? When you curse out your man, what’s your BFF going to say when you tell ’em? What if you get kicked to the curb or call it quits with your love, is your BFF going to be there to pick up the pieces? Are you thinking what I’m thinking???? Sing it Xscape: Who Can I Run To?
Now, let me be Dr. Phil for a moment…How’s that workin’ out for ya?
Before you know it, you’re going Halfcrazy like Musiq Soulchild
singing saying Cause when we kissed, the moment after I looked at you different…Damn I just want my friend back!
Question: Do you believe in homie-lover-friends? And who’s your favorite?
Two people agree. Two people disagree. Some would say they would begin to
fuss and fight
“Who do you think you’re talking to?…” “Don’t talk to me that way! ” Or, when you get your
panties feelings in a bunch personally involved “I don’t like your tone! ” quickly comes out. Well!
What about texting? Or even writing? Some would say using all caps means you are yelling. Really? So, how do you handle it then? “Don’t text me in that tone of voice! ” “Don’t write to me in that tone of voice!” That’s my reply. Oooooh! Caps just chap my hide!
What chaps your hide that someone should never say, especially online?
Have you ever heard someone say something and then say …”more or less.” For example, I have money, more or less. I have
good credit, more or less. I have a boyfriend/girlfriend, more or less. Wait. Huh? I’m confused. What exactly does that mean?
Have you ever heard someone say “Less is more.” Or “More is better than less.” So, when it comes to dating is it more or less that wins? For example, “I’m not tryin’ to be rude, I’m just being real…” (News flash. When you put rude and real in the same sentence, they mean one in the same. Claim it! Don’t be scared). More is not better than less. Contrary to what you say, The more “rude” you are the less “real” others see. In your case, the less you say, the better!
On the other hand, saying less is not always more of a good thing either. “Call/text me”, you say. Or “Send me a message (online), you say. So, I do. And I find myself doing all the talking. Why is that? You say you’re not that much of a talker or that you are a shy/quiet guy. Paaaaah-leeeeeeze. You just don’t have
much, a lot anything good to say. Humor me why don’t you?
When it comes down to it, I need more. I want more. I like, love, desire more.
So, more or less what say you?
