DATE ME OR DON’T ME
By Doris AC Johnson, MA of Psy, ABA
The dating game has lost its mind! Totally lost its way in this world. Women, we must do better. Set the stage. What I am learning more and more is that we are overly vying for the attention of a man. Me personally, I love men. I have sons, brothers, and my daddy was a man (as far as I know). Show up! I’m not going to turn a blind eye to the fact that there are more women than men. But I am also not going to allow my needs to fall on deaf ears. I can be your wife, but I must be your girlfriend first. There are levels to this thing. I have served enough time being someone’s wuty. (a girlfriend on wife duty) This is not part of the courtship. I will not audition for a role of which I do not wish to be cast. I will not be sitting around pouty and regretful because my part has been cut from the scene. I pass no judgment on anyone who likes this game. Play on player! I just don’t plan to play it. To each its own. We all go wrong when we coat and mask our true intentions and our true desires. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Feel like you feel. You just might mess around and get that. Ladies, we must stop building houses on sand. Nooo foundation…just an empty dream. When a man is interested, he will stop at nothing to get your attention even if that means not paying you attention. It is cute at first, but it gets exhausting and tiring. This kind of game sucks all the fun out of the future. I made a conscious decision this week. I am not the one or the two. I am not campaigning for mediocrity. If I want to play games, I can hit Milton Bradley or Hasbro up. MY FINAL OBSERVATION! Do not drive me crazy unless you plan to go with me. I will personally hand you the keys. I said what I said.
