After retweeting "My nonexistent balls are bigger than most men's" my mom told me I should watch what I post on Twitter and Facebook because I may intimidate men, and they won't want to ever date me.
I'll make this easy to all of the men in the world. If I intimidate you, I don't want to date you. I'm a single mama who works full time, and I don't have time for any man who is intimidated by me. I don't have a lot of time to give, so you better be secure in who you are, and what our relationship is. You will always be taking the back seat to Langston, so if that bothers you, we'll never be together. If your mom does your laundry, you better not come near me. I can't deal with anyone who doesn't respect my privacy. You go snooping through my things? See you later. I don't want to snuggle all night. When it's time to sleep, please move to your side of the bed. I won't drop all of my friends for you, because I need a life outside of a relationship. If you don't like my family, I can pretty much guarantee you that we won't work out.
Also, if you aren't a man, we'll never work out. I don't have time to waste on a boy. I'm in the beginning stages of a long and rough journey of child custody, so if you can't handle the stress that comes along with it, we just won't work out. I work hard, and so should you. Some girls like the guys who won't get dirty, and have to call a handyman to fix things around the house. I'm not that girl. I'd like a man, please. Is that so much to ask for?
It may sound like I'm being extremely picky, but I don't see it that way. I have a history of being burned, and I'm not looking to waste another minute of my time on someone that doesn't deserve it. We're not just talking about me anymore, now there's Langston. I can't bring just anyone around my son. I don't have time to casually date. I'm looking for someone to be with, in all aspects of long term. If you aren't looking for that, that's fine. I harbor no hard feelings for someone who isn't looking for the same thing I am, it just means that we aren't on the same page.
Got it? Good.
Got it? Good.
