I was listening to my iPod last night and this song came on my shuffle. I thought to myself that the premise of this song is really some hater sh*t (worse than the premise of ‘I Luv Your Girl’). The title goes perfectly with the song.
We’ve all been there before whether you want to admit it or not. You meet her/him and there’s an instant attraction to the point where you want to get to know this person better. That is until they drop the bomb on you and they tell you that they are involved. At this point
I most people would cut their losses and keep it moving. But what if you don’t want to give up that easily? I mean they are giving you time and opportunity for a reason right? Why should I (speaking in generalities) care about who she/he has at home? I don’t owe them a damn thing.
What if you actually know of their significant other but you’re still not cool with them like that? Do you still give them the respect of not trying to scoop their man/woman like a Marion Barber fumble? I’ve actually come across this situation twice in my adult life. And like the Dream said: “…the cool n***a in me was like don’t do it but the other n***a was like man f**k that n***a.” In both of these situations I took the other n***a approach. This line of thought got me what I wanted only half the time and even in that situation it was years later after they broke up. The other situation I feel could have been something great were it not for the wrong time/place.
I had to ask myself in the end was it worth it to hate on the next man because he had what I wanted. Have you ever hated on the next person? Do you believe in karma and someone might try to jedi mind trick your significant other into believing the grass is indeed greener on the other side?
