The brothers on these social media streets never fail to amaze me.
Now I’m known to be abit of hex so help me out.
let me try to understand this:
Events that occur upon me accepting a friend request
You don’t know me.
You invite me on social media. Cool, it is a SOCIAL media platform after all.
You hit me up through my DM seconds after I accept and say hey “beautiful”?
Wait. What’s beautiful? Can’t be my picture? I mean that could very well be photoshopped or had brighter lighting than normal? No? How do you even know it’s me?
Then I say, self… put the hex tendencies away, perhaps his being polite (still very unsettled though)
And I respond and say hey.
Then, you ask for a picture…
…but didn’t you see my pro pic or peruse my profile (oh snap, no time, it’s only been about what? A minute?) but then again, you just called me beautiful. Or, did you lie, just coz you think I’d be flattered (totes offensive, I mean I don’t need your validation, mama raised a hustler and Daddy raised a queen) or, are you looking for other pictures?
At this point I be like “ok Tazz chill, don’t be so hard. Maybe he is appreciating your finesse”…
And then I reply and ask? Picture? There’s tons on my profile. 😅
And i think to myself, ok, this is going to go okayish from here. Huge sigh of relief!
you say “so how you doing baby”
Unfriend and block is what I think next.
Let me try to explain why. I get thinking, what ever happened to getting to know somebody and referring to their soul and character as beautiful?
Why are our brothers so consumed with how their girls look, I mean we all know that’s not going to last forever and that we (girls, even Beyoncé) don’t wake up with perfectly filled eyebrows or our cheeks naturally glowing, or baby hair gel’d to our foreheads.
I so badly wanna ask: Brothers, Are you not worried that I could be a psycho? No? Money devil maybe? No? Do you not wanna get to know me, as in me me, personality? To see if you would actually be interested in me?
Don’t you wanna know my future aspirations, secret desires or to get to know Whether or not id beable to hold you down In times of need?
Do you not wanna get to know me, respectfully, so you can put to use the manners your mama raised you with, have a meet and greet and just speak about nothing and everything. Pull out a chair for me, offer to pay for the bill and then drop me off at home at a reasonable hour?
No? Not even to just get to know me, if a relationship is not what you looking for?
Is it really all about how I look?
Like, do I need to get with the programme and just be ready to show boob or ass Or a perfectly done face and hair and be on stand by to take pics as soon as you ask?
Help me understand. Please!! Coz I cant comprehend how it’s normal for this kinda conversation to come up and so often.
Is it me?
I mean I get so excited to meet new folk and In most cases regret accepting 3lines into the convo because it’s becomes so apparent; the superficial world we living in.
