Ten “Money doesn’t matter.” Money does and will always matter when it comes to men and women. Understand something, we live in a world where being evenly yoked matters. If a woman is used to taking vacations, going to gala’s and eating out at nice places paying ten dollars for a chocolate martini then guess what. No matter how great a guy is it will become annoying that he can’t live that lifestyle with you. Because in a woman’s eyes that’s went to school or made herself successful she feels like it’s her right to have fun and enjoy life. And being with a man who’d rather sit at home or only eat and drink at value prices is just a turn off. Even if he’s a good man because they don’t correlate.
Nine “Sex Isn’t Everything.” I’m a writer, I get five inboxes a week from women in relationships that are simply horny. They’re with really good men that just don’t satisfy them, maybe it’s technique, maybe it’s size, maybe it’s just chemistry. But they got with these guys because they were good men that would make good husbands. The sex was great with the loser that always borrowed her car before him but this guy looks at her like she’s the only woman in the world. Common sense, logic… what’s more important? A man that you can trust or a man that can make you cum? Think really hard about this question. When the sex is bad and orgasms only come in the shower or when he’s not home the relationship is doomed. It sounds great to say, ‘He’s a great guy, it’s just sex,’ but that’s not how we’re wired. 80% of women don’t cum at all during sex.
Eight “They’ve lost their figure but I still love them.” Any man that leaves his wife because she has his children and gains some weight would be labeled a complete asshole. Any woman that cheats on her husband because his six pack has given way to longer nights at the office and actual six packs would be a bitch right? But who are we kidding? We’re a vain society. If you marry Beyonce and in four years you have Monique you won’t look at her the same. If you marry a man who’s body gives you goose bumps and all of a sudden he can’t walk up stairs without sweating it’s a turnoff. We’ve all heard the saying, ‘To keep them, do what you did to get them!” and that’s so true. It’s politically incorrect for a man to complain about his wife’s body but I work with all men and they do it all the time. Is it right? No, it’s selfish but that’s the point. I’m not writing what sounds good, I’m writing what I know men think. When their sexy wife becomes overweight and wears big panties to bed, the ‘in-loveness’ gives way to just loving her out of obligation.
Seven “Good <Bad.” Women that are boring are simply boring.
“What do you want to do tonight baby?”
Good girl: I’m tired, I had a long day at work and I just want to watch some TV and go to bed. Maybe we can do something this weekend, there’s a new movie coming out and we can go to that Chinese place.
Bad girl: I want to do you tonight or better yet I want you to do me. I’m tired, I’m stressed, bring that **** over here and give me some life! Stop by Pappas and get me some fondue and a bottle of wine. Thanks babe!
Now I know some good girls will read this and say, ‘That’s not me,’ but it probably is you. Good women expect men to be understanding that they’re tired or sleepy or stressed. And most men are very understanding. A good girl isn’t going to ask you to wait at a crowded restaurant or go out of your way. But she’s also not going to bang you like a porn star on a Thursday when she has to get up at 6am. She won’t get jealous and bring that excitement. She won’t piss you off and arouse you at the same time. Men love women that have fire, that have passion. Bad girls are just more interesting than good girls. That’s why so many ho’s are winning in 2012.
Six ”Bad> Good” Do you know why I make the male characters in my writing such assholes? Because that’s what women want to read about. Guys that fight and have tattoos and are aggressive turn chicks on. Now you also have men that are just arrogant, no thug appeal but they have power. It’s the same concept though. Women are turned on by men that don’t come easy. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard a woman say, ‘He was just too damn interested. I could cancel on him today and tell him I don’t want to see him and tomorrow have him bring me dinner.’ Women hate weak men. They’ll put up with them because who wants to be lonely or deal with jerks all their life but bad guys just make a woman’s heart beat a little faster. And no matter how much she drops the… ‘I just want a good man to treat me right’ line, in the back of her mind she’ll always want excitement.
Five “It’s the thought that counts.” It’s her birthday, she’s excited, ready, has been looking forward to this day for the past ten months. You show up with a balloon and a cookie because that’s all you can afford. Even though you went out over the weekend and dropped money on a basketball game or drinks. But you remembered, you look her in her eyes and tell her you love her and Happy Birthday baby. You know what she’s going to do, smile and go out and shake her ass with her friends and guys that are pinning money on her and buying drinks. Actions matter more than thoughts! They always will… It’s why I can get away with writing the way I write because my actions back me up. If they didn’t I’d have women coming out the woodworks putting me on blast. Put up 50, a 100 dollars a month to take care of her when that time comes. Words are great, thoughts make for cool love letters. But get shit done!
Four “It’s better to give than to receive.” This is true but not why people say it is. We give most of the time to get, no one likes a one sided relationship. Men don’t take care of and spoil beautiful women because we’re gentleman, we do it because she’s going to give us amazing sex and make us the envy of every other man in the room. Men don’t go down on women for twenty minutes because we want to please her, we know if she doesn’t get hers she’s more than likely going to be lazy when it’s time for me to get mine. Giving feels amazing but most of the time we give to get and even if we give out the kindness of our heart we still want something in return. It’s human nature. No one wants to feel played and giving and giving and giving without getting messes with our spirit.
Three “Who you were before me doesn’t matter.” What?! Does anyone believe this? Ummm no! But guess what, we say it all the time because it makes us feel better about being with someone that was a bad person or a whore or a jumpoff or a weirdo. You don’t think if I’m dating a woman that has slept with every fraternity guy at her college it isn’t in the back of my mind? Or if a woman finds out I fall in love with every woman that has a pretty smile and reads my writing she isn’t going to worry that history may repeat itself? Who you were makes you who you are. That’s not to say people don’t change or grow but when you do things you leave a trail. And Houston or any city is small in certain pockets and the black community is one of those pockets. So if the woman is special enough or if the man is cool enough we may over look it but it matters.
Two “Honesty is the best policy.” The truth will not always set you free, this isn’t to say you lie about major events or issues. But it is to say use common sense. If you’re on the phone with your ex or a home girl and you blow off your woman’s call, when she asks you why you didn’t answer, you don’t say because I was talking to my ex and that excited me. You don’t say because my home girl was telling me about a threesome she had. You just make something up. And we all do it but pretend like any lie whatsoever is the end of the world. If I wasn’t pleasing my woman, do I want her to tell me… “Demez, I love you but you aren’t big enough for me and I think about my ex in order to get aroused.” HELL NO! I’d probably lose my mind and all self esteem. I’d rather her give me the ‘It’s me and not you baby’ line. Lies when they’re selfless protect people from themselves. I would never tell a woman that your lack of ambition is unattractive to me because maybe she’s happy with where she is life so I’ll tell her, “You’re better than me and you deserve better.” Maybe we both know it’s a lie but that’s the game we play.
One “Love Conquers All” Love is damn near at the bottom of the priority list. First and foremost we have to be, need to be, physically attracted to someone. That’s not even up for debate. And if there is no physical attraction (mostly women here) than the guy better be paid. It’s why the Bill Gates and Seals of the world marry supermodels. Charm, sex appeal, style, all these things come before love. We forget that love isn’t really an option until all those other traits and character appeals happen. So you can’t love someone before you know them and you can’t get to know them unless you’re attracted to them or to their money which equals security or comfort. Love isn’t overrated but I know plenty of broke guys that were loving hard but their women would rather drive a car that worked. Love makes for great songs and cinema but when he’s sitting on the couch and you’re going to work every morning… What’s love got to do with that? Or if she’s running through our checking account but only bringing in 20% of our home gross, what’s love again? Love conquers nothing but the heart and the head usually wins out over the heart.
