#WarriorPoet- MAN SPRAY
No, this is not me trying to get an Axe endorsement by bigging up their deodorant or me trying to get some cologne company to toss me a few free bottles. This is my trying to help the ladies out again. I did a post about a month ago (called KEEPIN’ IT 100) in which I kept it as real as I can with the ladies in regards to their dealings with men. As honest as I was and as much as it may have stung some of the ladies, I was pleased that most of you took it on the chin in truth & honesty and were able to re-evaluate some things within yourselves and that’s always a dope situation. Well, today I want to build on that a bit more…
Off!, Raid, Rest Easy, Steri Fab, etc… These are all designed to keep bugs away. There is a chemical FORMULA within these solutions that does not agree with the design of bugs. Some of these sprays actually kill bugs while others are merely meant to keep the bugs away. Well, I don’t know how else to put this other than the simple (yet non-addressed) fact that some of you women have Man Spray in your blood. Here’s an example:
MS. KNOW IT ALL- There is a HUGE difference between being educated or confident or “Independent” (I hate that word) and being a know it all. There is a difference between building knowledge for the purpose of your career or for the purpose of your own personal mental fortitude VS feeling the need to share what you know for the need to have a One-Up on the next person or because you think that you need to show that you’re in the same intellectual space with someone. There are ways to do that, without trying to advertise that you are an encyclopedia. Save that for jeopardy. It’s Man Spray.
***SIDE BAR- If you encounter a man who is a MR. KNOW IT ALL, I do urge you to then turn on your MS. KNOW IT ALL powers to maybe check him or put him in his place but outside of that, put it away.
MS. 2 CHAINS- There is a HUGE difference between having nice things, hanging around popular people, being accepted at “exclusive” places VS feeling the need to promote that you have nice things, and hang around popular people and are “accepted” by the cool kids. I’m still on a blackberry until the iPhone 5 comes out so I don’t have an Instagram account but via twitter/facebook I do get access to some of the photos that some of you post. I know a few people who put up pics of what they’re eating, or pics of themselves making funny faces, or even pics of the lady in front of them in line at the supermarket whose buttcrack is showing. But there are some people who ONLY post pics of themselves in VIP, or who ONLY post pics of their new finger nail color that just so happens to be next to the Mercedes-Benz logo on their steering wheel, or who ONLY post pics of their puppy while the puppy is wearing a Louis Vuitton rag around its neck. My dear, NOBODY CARES that you wear 2 chains. I would actually suggest that you beware of any dude who actually is attracted to you because of this stuff. When it comes to a quality guy, It’s Man Spray.
THE PREACHER’S WIFE- Let’s not get it twisted. The NUMBER ONE attribute for any future wife of mine is a heart for the Lord. Yes, that comes before her looks, before her body type, and waaaaaaay before what she knows or what type of bottles she’s popping in VIP. However… Your love for the Lord is best shown in your lifestyle and NOT in every sentence that cometh frometh thy mouF. Now, I can totally dig it that some of us come from some very tough backgrounds and your relationship with God & His presence in your life is the only thing that got you through it. And because of that, you may want to share your story. But everything should be done when it’s supposed to be done. All things in moderation. When Peyton is playing against the Jets, And the Jets are down by 3 touchdowns with 17 seconds left in the game, I don’t need to hear that Tim Tebow and the Holy Spirit are going to somehow pull it off. It’s Man Spray. It’s blessed with the sweet fragrance of the anointing but it ain’t poppin… Stop it.
THE PREDATOR- Bottom line… If he’s not pursuing you, leave it alone. Yes, he might like you. Yes he might flirt with you. Yes he might’ve given you a compliment and may have even engaged you in a dope conversation or 2… Yes, he might’ve even given you an idea that he was interested you and then after some of that good ole “Groin-Join,” he switched up. Yes, I know that it does happen but if he is not pursuing you and who you are at the core, leave… him… alone. Otherwise, you will end up pursuing a man who isn’t really into you (at least not in that kind of way) and that will eventually become MAN SPRAY.
Ladies!!! Especially, black women… OR women who are into black men… The odds are not in your favor. I posted #WomenWhoWont on the Revolution of Fresh blog in which I touched on this subject a little deeper. The odds of finding a “good” (whatever that means), heterosexual, productive in society, decent credit having, black man who is single with 1 child or less, and doesn’t do drugs is slim… Yes, it’s slim. And because it’s already slim, you are hurting your chances even more by walking around with MAN SPRAY perfume oozing from your pores. I’m far from an expert but I’m actually thinking about writing a little $4.99 amazon, straight to kindle & nook type of book about my views on Men & Women. But in the meantime, I can’t give you all of the ways to get a man, but I can at least show you some of the reasons why you don’t have one… Or why you keep attracting the wrong ones. The harsh reality is… If I happen to be one of these “good” dudes that women are after and I know that the odds are say… 200 to 1 in my favor, when it comes to finally picking the one to have children with, and marry, and bring home to mom & dad, and share my dreams with it will NOT be a Predatory, Know It All, 2 Chain wearing, Preachers wife… Why?!? BECAUSE I HAVE 199 OTHER OPTIONS AND DO NOT HAVE TO SETTLE FOR THAT.
To change this, doesn’t require that you start doing more of something or start doing less of something. It requires action that can be done in the privacy of your own home when you’re all alone. It takes you looking in the mirror and being honest. No one needs to be around. You don’t even have to share it with anyone. It takes you facing some harsh truths and realities about yourself that might even bring tears to your eyes. You might think you’re confident when you’re really a know it all. You might think you’re “thick” when really you’re 50 pounds over weight. You might think you’re cool and sexy and “still got it” when really the only people who comment on your social media photos are horny men and your own child’s classmates & friends. The truth really will set you free and trust me, I’m dealing with my own truths as we speak so I know that it can be rough but it’s NEEDED.
Shameless plug but so what… Some of the coolest, down to earth, NON MAN SPRAY having chicks that I know, leave their cool, and their know it all’ness, and their diva attitude at the door and they come here…
You probably should too! But more importantly, take a DAILY trip to that mirror and be honest about what you see…
