Dating in 2017


Let’s set the mood. I want you to have a “International Player’s Anthem (I Choose You)” (feat. Outkast) Andre 3000 with chorus in back saying “I choose you babe!” vibe when you read this.



So, I grabbed his phone just to stop it from ringing
And on his wallpaper was a picture of us grinning
He caught my smirk and put his arm around me to say
“I love the look on your face and the way you smelt that day.”
He isn’t one for too many words
And doesn’t post pics yet has a lot of birds
So what he said next was a surprise to me
He was finally thinking responsibly

He goes…

So, I typed a text to a girl I used to see
Saying that I chose this cutie pie with whom I wanna be
And I apologize if this message gets you down
Then I CC’ed every girl that I’d see-seed ‘round town
And hate to see y’all frown but i’d rather see her smilin’

Verse by Andre 3000

Dating in 2017 can be confusing at times. You have no idea which actions are deal breakers for the possibility of your relationship growth.

There are key ways of knowing if your relationship is on the right track.
• You spend more time together doing regular things.
• You meet each other’s family and friends.
• Together you two start to plan for future events
• You offer support without enabling them. They owe you nothing because they do it from their heart.

However, the actual act of asking someone to be your girlfriend, doesn’t occur. It usually, just gets assumed or mentioned by others. Which could leave you uncertain of your status in the relationship.

The easiest thing to do is talk to the person about it. Which is why it’s not the only thing you should do.

Have him invest in you by only focusing on you. From my experience, when he lets his homegirls, best girl friend and his ‘she’s like a cousin’ chick go… he’s already all yours.
