So, you meet a new honeydip (do the kids still say that?) she tells you she’s just gotten out of a serious relationship.
You pick her up for your 2nd or 3rd date and there’s a dude, in his undies, sitting in the living room watching the game.
He gives you a Bruhman nod, and goes about his business.
“Uh, who the fug was that?” you ask her as you head out for your date.
She replies, “Oh, that’s my ex, that I told you about. He still lives here. We’re not together or anything, though. We are in a recession after all.”
Do you still date her or tell her to holla when she gets her living sitch straightened out?
Phlip: I do not continue to date her. One of my exes fell into that trap with the cat after me… roommates in an apartment neither could hold down alone. Now they’re still broken up, hate each others guts (finally living apart) and have a daughter to show for their troubles. I am fine with using other people as cautionary tales, and I keep that story in my pocket just for questions like this.
DUDE DARKNESS: HILARIOUS! I had a homegirl go through this. She DIVORCED her husband but until he could get his money right… they remained roommates. I used to crack jokes on the fact that she had to introduce the ex to new guys as.. ” Oh.. him.. that’s just my huuuuuzzzzzband”…” pay him no mind’…LOL
Actually , Most guys wouldn’t kick her to the curb. We are all grown and I got my own spot so – we’d spend most of the time at my crib. When I wanted some inside dirt on her .. I’d go to the ex for information.
I would NEVER have LONG TERM plans with homegirl… just your average, typical misdemeanor of ” SMASH & GRAB ” or accidental ” HIT & RUN ” …..whatever you want to call it!.. Unless you made her speak in tongues during sex — best believe homeboy is still tapping that AZZZZ! ( I’ve been on the GOOD end of too many .. ” I have a boyfriend now….THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE LAST TIME WE DO THIS..OK??.. SLURP..SLURP!” .. scenarios to know he’s still tapping that! The X -Factor is too much to make her permanent. The ex is basically D-K in a glass… BREAK IN CASE OF EMERGENCY! Plus… you have NO IDEA what the ex is working with! He MOST likely is MANDINGO throwing his joint over his shoulder to keep it from dragging on the floor because she has NOT put him out yet… …AND here you come looking like Opie paying for dinners and giving her emotional support…LOL while the ex blows her back out from across the room every night….Some chics may hate the MAN.. BUT LOVE HIS SCH….LOOOOONG! :-) And that is most likely the case because she has NOT put him out yet… once a female is completely done with a man– he’s gone… hence the reason most divorced men pay for houses they DON’T LIVE IN!!!!…LOL
