Although this was a fairly new group of acquaintances, our relationship has been made clear and outside of us being adjoined at the hip, I don’t know what else would make it any clearer. So I was a bit surprised that in the midst of all the festivities, there was a woman who kept making it her business to insert herself wherever he was. So much so that he was having to move around to maintain his personal space.
Now I must say, he is a very handsome and intelligent guy who carries himself like no other so a lot of this comes with the territory. Thankfully, I’m not the overly jealous type but in this instance, I’m sure even the most secure woman would have something to say. At one point, she even had her arm rested on the back of his chair while I was sitting right there next to him. I don’t know, maybe it’s the old fashion upbringing but in my opinion, there are just certain boundaries you shouldn’t cross when you know a person is with someone. Funny thing is, I didn’t even have to say anything. On the ride home, he even admitted that it was one of the most awkward situations he’s been in.
I wanted to share this story to pose the following question; at what point will some of the women of today regain respect for not only those that their actions may affect but more so for themselves?
Regardless of what society has tricked many to believe, there is nothing appropriate about throwing yourself every which way the wind blows for the sake of the attention of a man. Because let’s be real, at the end of the day, what are you really attracting? In general conversation, most men will agree that they mainly view such behavior as an invitation to simply get what they want and keep it moving. Nothing more, nothing less.
So ladies, learn to have some chill, mmkay…
