Ideally, of course, we all want the kind of love The Flamingos sang about, you know, that “I Only Have Eyes for You” type shit where you go to sleep with one chick on your mind, the chick, coincidentally, that you’re laying next to when you do go to sleep, and when you wake up, “tada!” your mind is on the same chick and your body’s still next to her.
Foolish men believe that women are naturally wired to be this way and that it’s outside of nature that hoes occur.
However, the reality is that while you may remain “faithful” – and I’m going with the absolutely most basic definition on that one; no penetrative sex with another party – it’s likely that your eyes, if not your mind, will roam.
Now its time to step into reality, dumb guys. Even if your girl ain’t cheating, she’s sure as shit looking.
So where do you draw the line?
Does a line even exist?
Is it all fair game as long as there’s no textbook “cheating”?
Most importantly, what’s your definition of “cheating”?
If you asked a million people, you’d probably get a million answers.
I had an ex that tried to convince me that having an “emotional affair” was more devastating than having a physical one.
“For who?” I asked. “I’d certainly rather be the nigga that has to deal with the fact that you told another dude our secrets than the nigga that has to deal with seeing the pics of you taking backshots.”
But that’s just me.
Cheating, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
So then what to do with Anthony Weiner?
This guy is serial, he’s addicted, he’s got problems.
Remember how back in 2011 when his propensity for sending out dick pics first blew up in his face. The scandal caused him to resign from Congress.
He was back at it in 2013, costing himself a shot at being NYC’s mayor.
Now yesterday’s shit.
Can’t front, the chick he was hitting up does have a body.
The funny shit is, although she announced today that she’s leaving him, through it all his wife Huma Abedin, a Hillary Clinton aide, had stuck it out with dude.
Would you have?
I mean, there’s been no evidence that he’s actually done anything except forge online relationships where he sends out pics of his cock to all interested parties.
If, ladies, you found out that this would be the limit and extent of your own man’s infidelities, would you pull the plug or would you be relieved?
There’s a lot of people out there in relationships that are knowingly and demonstratively worse than Weiner’s and who would dream of a partner that could keep it in his pants in the real world if only to flaunt it in the virtual one.
There are also those comprehensively possessive relationships where nothing is cool. The opposite sex isn’t even supposed to register.
While this may be unrealistic, how realistic then is it to expect any kind of long-term monogamous relationship?
And is it then unnatural that a man should “settle” for anything including one sexual partner for the duration of his life?
Make no mistake, monogamy like the anti-homosexuality movement, has it’s roots in the rise of Christianity.
You cut off those roots and your left to your own devices.
Do you really expect me to believe that you could love so strongly that you’d only ever need one other person for the rest of your life?
Do you believe that shit yourself?
