i look at our young men and ladies these days and i shake my damn head. let me start off by saying i am single and its not by default. boys grow up with the conception that when they become a certain age they are men. just because you act mannish doesn't mean that you are a man my dear. ladies grow up with the conception that because they are fucking, they know what love is. its sad to see what things have diminished to when it comes to relationships and marriages. a man prides himself on taking care of his lady, his home and his children, being a provider and a protector. a lady lets her man be a man without hesitation. a lady lets her man know shes proud that hes her man. I'm trying to become an optimist when it comes to relationships, but this is not an easy task. yeah, yeah, yeah i know some of y'all out there will say good men are out there. the pessimist in the back of my mind says "where are they", the optimist says " i know one day he will find me". yes this is a battle. i will say this i don't base my happiness on whether or not I'm in a relationship or not, but I'm only human and who doesn't want a companion. i would never expect a man to come into my life and teach me how to be a lady, just as i cant teach a boy on how to be a man. seems to me that this is becoming the norm of things though. i see people everyday stuck in bullcrap relationships, just for the sake of having a relationship.i dont' think that I'm the best thing since slice bread or anything, but i do hold myself and standards to a certain accord. in order to be my man, i have to respect you as such. i can show/teach my man on how to love me, but that is two different things. i can count on my hand how many men i would consider to be good men. what else trips me out is when a man that ain't worth a penny with a hole in it, has the audacity to speak on being a good man, or why women are single. MAN PLEASE. with all this being said i know that i could come across as more pessimistic than optimistic, but its quite the contrary. oh well I'm not looking for a diagnosis, i just want you guys to speak on the subject.
