Trading Places?

Usher scored a huge hit with his role reversal inspired song "Trading Places", but how many of you would actually do any of the things he mentions in his song for a man that's NOT your man?

  • Pick him up?

  • Take him out?

  • Open HIS door?

  • Take him shopping?

Although the song is obviously intended for COUPLES or any kind of committed "situation", there are some men who think that just because you guys are seeing each other, this song applies to them.

For example, I recently dated a guy who couldn't have done better on our first date, I mean absolutely rolled out the red carpet, but once it came time to go out again, he asked ME to pick him up! Now I'm sure that by now you can tell that I'm a relatively old-fashioned girl, but not to any extreme.If it was further into our dating life I may have been open to it, but for a second date, no way!

On top of that...he wanted me to TAKE HIM OUT!! Mind you, he had done a few things here and there for me, but he still wasn't my MAN!! And homie don't play that. Could just be me, but how far would you go for a man that wasn't quite yours?

Speak on it...

A real man wouldn't do all that, he would know his place. I think some women let some "play boys" get away with that mess and then they get comfprtable and think they could do the same thing with other chicks. Independent women doesn't mean that chivalry is dead. It means we need companions that know how to treat us not play us.

Whether the man is mine or not, I wouldn't go that far for him, if he wouldn't for me. I see relationships as a 50/50 thing, so you got to give to get.

I wouldn't mind taking a man out if he was "MY MAN" LOL. If a guy wants you to take him out and you're not in a relationship...I take that as a warning sign that he may be a moocher.
