Wait…Drake Is Your For Real Pretend Boo?!

Despite all of the relentless and hilarious mocking of one Aubrey Drake Graham, he’s really having the best 2010’s ever. He’s got hits on hits on hits, definitely has racks on racks on racks, and pretty much everything he does manages to work. Hell, I’m a fan. I even feel like I owe him an apology after clowning If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late. I love that album. It’s possible I listen to it more than any other album right now. I also run through various areas with my woes.

Not the woes that people who aren’t hip to pop culture run with ie sadnesses, but the kind that Drake is talking about. I’m looking at you, uncool people.

What I’ve also noticed about Drake is how many women I know have an active crush on him. And not like groupie types, either; I’m talking women I know well who contribute to society and the Black community in ways that are impressive. Which is fine. Drake seems like a pretty sincere dude. For all of his talk about being last name EVER, first name GREATEST, and his affinity for strippers, and Toronto, he’s just as known for his ability to tap into his emotional core and speak from that part of his essence that is communicative, transparent, and compromising: basically everything all women who read want their man to be. Long gone are the days of the strong, silent type. Now strong and emotive rules the day…in the home at least. Thanks, Obama.

And this is allegedly Drake. Let’s be real, while hip-hop is supposed to be authentic, we really don’t know shit about most of these guys. Same with all of our pop culture famous couples. We assume they’re who we want them to be which is fine; you can’t have a role model without focusing on the things you want them to be to you. We can only hope that the walls do not come tumbling down. *coughBillandCamille*

So while knowing that women love Drake for the reasons I stated – all reasonable requirements, mind you – and realizing that his new beard has turned him into some kind of heartthrob (it was just a few years ago when folks were saying he looked like a burnt candle or Manny from Ice Age) as opposed to the famous dude who made “Best I Ever Had”, I still found myself befuddled the other day when I accidentally stumbled upon a real conversation between two very educated women.

I didn’t even have to ear hustle the convo, they were spittin’ so much realness from their souls that I think they wanted others to hear it.

These two women were discussing the dating woes (see what I did there?) of one of the women. Specifically an issue one was having with some dude she was interested in who apparently wouldn’t act right. And it’s not that he couldn’t, he just seemed to ‘pacifically NOT be acting right, on purpose. As a choice. He was making a string of bad choices it seemed. Which he is wont to do. Well, this particular woman was non-plussed and wondered aloud, as many women are also wont to do, why he wouldn’t just do right?

To be fair, based on the convo that I heard, buddy was indeed…fucking up. It all sounded like the type of an-apology-is-coming fucking up that guys do when their pride gets in front of their common sense on the Love Train. Shouts to Con Funk Shun. To be more fair, the entire convo was also one-sided. My man was not there to defend (or convict) himself. But that’s also not important. What happened NEXT was what threw me for a loop.

“You know, Drake wouldn’t this.”

Now of course, it’s entirely possible that they meant some other dude named Drake. They can’t possibly be talking about rapper and lightskint extraordinaire, 6 God, Drake right?

“Girl, you’re right. I’d be the best he ever had. He keeps it so real in his songs. Like he might mess up, but he’d apologize.”

Le sigh.

“That’s what I’m saying. Like, Drake would be a nigga, becuase he is, but you know at the end of the day he’d come home and like give you a back rub and tell you how beautiful you are. Because that’s who Drake is. Your dude is just trippin. I wish we could all date Drake.”

Le sigh more. It continued on like that for at least another five minutes.

Now, its one thing if they sounded like they were joking. But this sounded like a regular conversation that could happen while the club was going up on a Tuesday. There’s nothing wrong with this. At all. It was more hilarious than disturbing. But it got me to thinking, does this shit happen…like regularly? Is Drake actually many women’s ideal boyfriend in their head, to the point where when having problems in their own situations, Drake comes up?

Is this a thing? Is Drake the third party in a lot of relationships where God is supposed to be? Are women measuring their men up against Drake?

I doubt that’s the case. Seriously. But after hearing that convo and bouncing that off of a few more women I know, it seems that Drake does seem to be a guy that many women view as an ideal dating partner. I tend to think he’s more of a “regular” dude than he isn’t and would probably do all of the exact same shit most guys do. He’d just then go write a song about it and women would say, “see, he sees the problem and is holding himself accountable”, meanwhile the girl he screwed over is still waiting for that apology phone call listening to his new songs like “duck Frake”.

Or maybe not. It’s not something I ponder frequently. However, I’ve come to find out that there’s an entire demographic that has devoted considerable time to the idea of Drake as their boyfriend.  For play play.

But…for real, for real.

HYFR.

So far gone? Or nah?

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

  • A throwback to midnight posting! Snazzy

    The fascinating thing about the play-play but for really-real idea of dating Drake is that if you didn’t mention Drake and asked these same women to write about/describe the type of boyfriend they’d want in their life . . . they absolutely definitely wouldn’t describe a man like Drake. Or at least the grand majority wouldn’t which is fascinating because they’re aware of Drake-like existing in the real world prior to and alongside Drake. Women are wild.

    • Nick Peters

      Money and Fame…

  • I feel like Drake’s period would inevitable sync up with mine if we ever became friends. That’d be straight, we could buy ice cream and tampons together and talk about our feelings.

    • Nick Peters

      See….
      this is the hate that I’m talking about….
      Light Skinned out…

    • LadyIbaka

      You ain’t NEVER lied! His emo radar is on Oscar worthy proportions. During that time of the month…he’d be so necessary!

      LadyI: Do you think this dress makes me look fat?

      Drake: Fat is just a state of mind not being. What you got are curves that protrude to give you a proportionate circumference in the back to the front and sideways.

      LadyI: You are the best FRIEND I’ve ever, no scratch that, I’ll ever have.

      • Val

        Hiya, AM! Ca Va?!

        *waves*

        • LadyIbaka

          Ca va bien!!! * waving*!!!!!!!!!!

          Darling Val!!!

      • This is spot on, if I was ever feeling less than beautiful, Drake would be there to love me, just like K.Michelle said.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZefCp3oSQAM

        • Nick Peters

          Am I the only one who thinks this is weird…
          …I mean what if Tyrese wrote a song about how Janelle Monae would appreciate his love better

          • LadyIbaka

            If you know K. Michelle’s dating history of unrequited love, it makes all the sense.

          • Freebird

            the road to creepdom is shorter for men.

            • Nick Peters

              Fatal Attraction?

              • Freebird

                sexism makes it easier to ignore the devil in the blue dress.

        • Aye Bee

          This song is what immediately came to mind. Before this song ever came out, a coworker and I had an almost 2 hour long convo (we were bored on the car ride to Dallas) about hypothetical situations with Drake. Like, if he were to have a one night stand where he met the chick in the club, he would prob have breakfast in bed waiting on her when she woke up, a change of clothes (even if it was just an oversized sweatshirt and some sweats), a blanket to wrap herself in if it is cold and an uber/cab waiting on her to take her home. And if she felt guilty about giving it up on the first night, he would comfort her with some of his smooth talking. And yes, we both have dergees…it was comical to us and very entertaining.

          I hate to admit that I have actually had dreams about Drake…at first he started off as a new bff that I met in the mall, and then the dreams started getting weird as he became the friend trying to get himself out of the friend zone like an ex trying to get back in your good graces *cues Marvin’s Room* Consciously I didn’t want him but I guess my subconscious was on some Drake ish being emo and wanting to be loved by him…lol

          • I can’t take Drake seriously but I do think he’d be that guy I’d keep around to make me feel better about myself.

            • Aye Bee

              As a friend or side piece ?

              • As a friend. My side pieces have got to be the kind of men I don’t have deep conversations with, lest either of us become emotionally attached.

                • inYOface

                  Why do we agree with this statement in post but in real life, just can’t do it! #IJS

            ………

        • panamajackson

          I did not know this existed.

          • You’re welcome lol

          • PhlyyPhree

            I just posted that I thought THIS was what you were listening to when you came up with this article

      • panamajackson

        Wait…is that the right answer to the “does xyz make me look fat?”

        DID YOU JUST GIVE AWAY THE ANSWERS!!!!

        • LadyIbaka

          Yes.

        • No. Always no. Unless of course, the person is wearing see through leggings as trousers, in which case. Even if she’s Naomi, say yes.

    • laddibugg

      There are some dudes that I SWEAR have non-bleeding periods.

      • HeyBooHey

        There are. I’ve met a few. And I swear my dad is the patron saint of their kind

        • laddibugg

          Oh no! Not pops!

        • Aye Bee

          Are our dad’s related?lol. Bc I swear there have been times I told my mom “Imma give dad a break right now bc it must be that time of the month” lol

          • HeyBooHey

            LOL! My dad was good for swinging moods when I lived at home and I’d be real confused about it. My mom would just say “he’s on his period, let him be” and keep it pushin

            • “A man’s period is when he wants to cheat but he can’t…he’s being faithful.” – Patrice Oneal

              • HeyBooHey

                Knowing what I know now, this could’ve been very true in those moments

              • inYOface

                I just hollered, spit milk, and fell out my chair. This is the most awesome, true, real(est) definition of the male period. I think this needs to be patented and put on mugs and tshirts, so we can snicker.

              • brothaskeeper

                R.I.P.

          • PhlyyPhree

            Mannnn, my dad was a rolling stone…do we have the same papa?
            I swear at least once a month I just let his calls roll over to voicemail to save myself the headache

        • LadyIbaka

          Lol!!!!!

        • Baemie St. Patrick

          OMG My daddy will be cool one moment and turnt the next. I just gotta hit him with the “ok daddy”.

      • panamajackson

        I’d agree with this actually.

      • miss t-lee

        I’m with you on this.

    • Andie

      I don’t believe Drake would ever do any of that crap. Much like College Dropout Kanye didn’t necessarily lead you to believe he would marry Kim. I haven’t heard of too many rappers who have the ability to respect women. Drake can’t even be nice to them on STAGE. They f@!k tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many girls to care about sitting up eating ice cream and caring about the feelings of a woman. It is very difficult to seem women as human after that. I guess people really do buy what folks sale. The most “conscious” rappers are always the least conscious acting. So I imagine the most “emotional” rapper is the most heartless. That is one thing I appreciate about Rae Shurmardawhateva. I love their very honest interviews. When they talk about who they are gonna f!@k after the show. How long they can stay in the hotel room. How poorly they will speak of girls they aren’t attracted to. Or how badly they will talk about the women they spent several minutes with. Or how long the line they had outside a door of women waiting to lick stuff. Rapper and boyfriend is like Crack and veganism.

      • LadyIbaka

        But there are strippers out here in these internet streets who reported that he cuddles after the do.

        • Andie

          I wonder if it is the same type of strippers/movie stars Tyga cuddles with after. Nothing would surprise me.

          • LadyIbaka

            Could care less…

      • You sound really angry. Did you not have a good experience with a famous rapper?

        • Andie

          I am not angry. Well maybe a little. I resent how poorly soooooooooooooooooooooooooo many rappers treated by sister. Like Big Pun. Like the time Big Pun tried to rape her in the office. I guess I’m not over it. I have more me work to do.

          I just wish people saw more of how poorly these men in general treat women. And how imagining a relationship with Drake (of any kind) is probably worse than idolizing the relationship you could have with Bill Cosby. Growing up as the lil sis of a publicist….I guess I would just say….I saw A LOT. I looked behind the curtain. There was no OZ.

          • Oh. Yea, I didn’t know that about Big Pun but I do recognize that men, within and outside of the music industry, don’t treat women with an ounce of respect. I don’t romanticize Drake by any stretch of the imagination though.

            • Andie

              One positive thing about seeing a lot of things I probably wasn’t supposed to see at a certain age. It made me very tolerant/understanding of people who make non-vanilla $3xual choices. A girl can tell me about her experience with a glory hole…and I don’t automatically think she is crazy/or has deep-rooted psychological issues/ or is possessed by the devil/or some type of deviant/or is going to h3ll. I like that about me.

              • A gloryhole is too wild to me. Go out and prosper though.

                • Andie

                  Again. Just an example. Of something that isn’t for me….but might be for someone else.

              • Glory holes seem so impractical to me though. The amount of positions seems limited.

                • Andie

                  Definitely Not my thing. But…to each his own. Or however they say it.

                • What’s a glory hole?

            • DreamJo

              i cannot remember what show it was where Big Pun’s wife was interviewed and said he used to beat the crap out of her. He was no Drake.

          • inYOface

            This comment gave me life. It’s harsh, and real, and hurts! all I can say is thanks!! but you do sound bitter #IJS

            • Andie

              Thank you. LOL.

      • GypsyCurl

        I just call him Rae Smurf. I don’t have time to try to pronounce his name. AND after listening to interviews to figure out how to pronounce his name, I realized he doesn’t know how to pronounce his own name! Then I started to wonder, “did he do this on purpose to see if he can give people the okie-doke?” Then, I stopped wondering and lived the rest of my bougie, degree-holding, career-having A** life not caring about Rae Smurf and why is he a duo.

        • Andie

          LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • preach! It’s cute to think about Drake or whoever being a decent dude. But at the end of the day these men are dudes who have everything thrown at them. Of course they aren’t going to be upstanding dudes. People need to stay woke.

  • Drake = what Nick Cannon would be if he could actually rap or sing

    • Hmmmmmmmm. Hmmmmmmm. Interesting.

    • I don’t think so. Nick Cannon has that goofball thing on lock. Drake is many things, but he isn’t goofy. He seems too earnest to be goofy.

      • Lol I think Drake is goofy too; the difference is strengths. Nick Cannon comes from the world of comedy, whereas Drake comes from the emo world. Outside of that they’re similarly odd and yet manage to pull top level women.

      • ChiChi

        I feel like he’d be mad goofy at times…like his SNL stint or when he goes out in public incognito (barely) and asks people how they feel about him.

    • panamajackson

      This is an interesting theory. I think Nick Cannon is mad corny, just off GP tho. Drake isn’t really corny…at least he doesn’t seem to be.

  • eyecande

    I am not at this pretend boo level but the beard and abs have me concerned. How Jimmy gonna flip the script with a beard AND abs?! I’ve increased my Homeland Security Level to Elevated so I stay woke.

    • I have this friend (honestly, it’s not me) and she’s been talking about this of late. I am worried for my self too. I’m looking at the beard like it’s a beard i’d want to stroke and those abs though and just thinking hmmm. Get thee away from me satan. He still looks like any man on road in London. Jumper and beard and all moody af looking. Mercy! Going to have some ice

  • LOL, Im freaked out because me and my homegirl just had this exact same conversation (one of us single and one of us with an aint shiznit bf inclusive) over the weekend.

    • Tristan

      Which one has the aint sh t bf

      • Lea Thrace

        you asking for a friend…

        lol!

        • Tristan

          Nah.

      • <—guilty

  • kid video

    The first post I ever read on VSB dealt with the Drake/Maliha photo(That was many strippers/years ago).

    There some ladies that probably feel bad for liking him cause he’s not usually their type(like if he had a regular job/couldn’t rap or sing).

    He’s Babyface for millennials.

    https://youtu.be/4TYjblr2t3A

    • You’ve nailed it. Goodnight everybody!

    • i thought Chris Brown was our Baby Face?

    • BlueWave1

      “There some ladies that probably feel bad for liking him cause he’s not usually their type…”

      This. Or they automatically assume he would never check for them. So they go pre-emptive like Bush. Funny things is, on this site its always the same people making the same comments about Drake. If you see Drake’s name in the title you can almost write the comments from specific posters. Its pretty entertaining to read.

      • kid video

        There’s also those sisters who have a love/hate relationship wit lite-skinned dudes who don’t have much “edge” about them.
        I’m sure it’s some girls that hate that they get moist when his songs/videos are in heavy rotation.

        It’s like when dudes meet a chick with an okay face, but a BANGIN’ body.

        • BlueWave1

          Growing up I was the “light skinned dude with no edge”. I heard a truckload of talk brown skinned sisters about not liking us, blah blah blah. I think some women do that because they feel they need to try to cut us down to size. I learned not to pay much attention to it. Because honestly the ones who talked the most were the most interested. I can’t lie. I kind of liked it.

  • Wild Cougar

    I could see it. Not Drake himself but the honesty. Personally I’m sick to death of the constant fronting. Playing hard and emotionless. Some honesty is hella attractive when every man is being fake. Even the nice ones are fake nice. Maybe after every dude got the same memo and they are ALL DOING THE SAME THING a significant group of women are over it, like I am.

    • Nick Peters

      Most men don’t have the heart to be honest….honestly

    • HeyBooHey

      All of the yes *waves church fan*. Do dudes come from a genuinely honest place nowadays? I’m tired of asking guys I meet “no seriously, who hurt you boo?” cuz they wanna play hard with their feelings

      • Tristan

        I think this generation of men are way more sensitive than past. Who are this stone ninjas you meeting

        • Nick Peters

          these are the men that women wanted…they opened the floodgates and know want to pick and chose what feelings dudes are allowed to have

          • LadyIbaka

            Lissen….you cannot be emoting over nonsense. Find sense.

          • JennyJazzhands

            True. When everyone was crying for their man to show their feminine side, I was like nah, that can’t be good. And here we are.

        • This generation of men are more sensitive at all. More emotional perhaps, but not sensitive.

          • Yeh definitely more emotional, which means breakdowns and the polar opposite violent explosions are more common.

          • That girl MEL!

            Emotional and sensitive are two very different things. You are absolutely correct.

            Like, a two-year-old is emotional, but they surely don’t care about being sensitive to your needs or the needs of others around them.

            • Exactly. Sensitivity requires you to be cognizant of how you are reacting affects others and being receptive to other people. Emotional is just letting all your feelings go in which way without a thought on how it impacts others.

                I’ll have to steal this.

          • HeyBooHey

            Nail on the head

          • miss t-lee

            I’d go with emotional over sensitive.

            • That’s the men of your generation.

              • miss t-lee

                Yeah, no.

        • HeyBooHey

          I’ve met 3 stone ninjas in passing this past weekend alone while I was out drinking. DC is chock full of em

        • cakes_and_pies

          More sensitive or more hyper vigilante at what is perceived as “acting soft”?

          • Nah I think the 90’s were worse for being soft. Sensitive/emotional guys are more polarized: extremely weak or extremely violent. A balanced man is usually a stoic, but nowadays that’s considered boring.

            • Andie

              Could you explain more how balance would best be illustrated in a stoic man?

              • Quiet, stern, disciplined, rarely moved one way or the next…something more common in our grand parents generation or WW vets.

                • See my dad was born in the 30’s and I took my emotional cues from him. With me being born in 79 that makes things really interesting.

                  • I don’t think it is universal, I think it was more common tho. Seeing and living through wars tends to either turn you crazy or make u view most of life as not really serious. My grandfather fought in ww1 for the British Empire, had 6 wives and 20+ kids and from all the stories I’ve heard of him, he was as cool as ice.

                    • I didn’t see my pops shed a tear until 2012 the morning after my mom passed. He held a lot of stuff in. Learning to emote as a grown man isn’t fun.

                      King’s African Rifles?

                    • Nah: The West African Frontier Force

                      I think the idea of expressing emotions as a healthy thing is mostly post-Freudian. Keeping emotions in as a male, was rare, probably because u saw on average a lot more messed up things than u see today.

                    • Arafat

                      KAR was mainly composed of east African’s.

                    • I know. I have no idea where Negro Libre is from.

                    • Lol, I’m from America (born here)…but yeh, parents are Nigerian.

                • h.h.h.

                  Quiet, stern, disciplined, rarely moved one way or the next…something more common in our grand parents generation or WW vets.

                  is there…anything wrong with this?

                  i’m asking …for myself.

                  • I don’t think so but we do live in a post-Freud age, where expressing emotions is a huge part of our culture. The quiet kids get picked on or are believed to be hiding something (which is an American thing). There’s a distrust in our culture for ppl who exemplify such characteristics from when we are young.

                    • h.h.h.

                      i see. i think i lowkey get the latter due to my(edited) and .

                      lol.

                  • Andie

                    I wouldn’t be presumptuous enough to call it right or wrong. Some of the adjectives seem to be historically challenging for people in relationships. For example: Quiet, and stern. Finding the balance with those traits so that others aren’t recipients of psychological abuse such as emotional witholding or isolation.

                    • h.h.h.

                      hmm.

                      i see.

                  Thank you.

            • LadyIbaka

              Give me stoic any day!

              • K Lust

                Stoic men don’t talk tho. The ones ive dated don’t anyway. It’s like pulling teeth. It’s like dating an old grumpy grandpa trapped in a sexy body.

            • cakes_and_pies

              I’ll take boring and stoic over a Drake/Mayweather dichotomy any day.

          I’m not sure men are more sensitive. I think men have always been sensitive. The jails are full of sensitive n*ggas. However, I think more men are being requested to SHARE those sensitivities. Except the pendulum swung too far.

          • Keisha

            Way too far! :-/

  • Brass Tacks

    I feel as though drake gets a pass, simply because he found a way to commodify millennial male emoting into something women could easily understand.

    Between himself, Breezy, and Trigga, you pretty much have the spectrum of millennial male f*ckery. But, because of the whole “star” aspect of their profession. Women seem to be more forgiving of their b.s.

      ESPECIALLY Breezy

    • NoPlaysOff

      I am in total agreement with this! It is absolutely mind boggling to me when I see women swoon over these guys and all their mess, yet if their boyfriends did anything remotely close to what these guys sing/rap about, there would be subtweets galore going on!

      P.S. Millennial Male F*ckery needs to be a book title!

      • Brass Tacks

        Pretty much. I mean we have all heard a version of the convo Panama stumbled upon. And its like, if Drake wasn’t famous, he’d probably be getting drug by his current boo and her friends (his future boos) right now!

    First let me say that I effs with Drizzy.

    To many women Drake seems like he would be the ideal boyfriend, until you realize that the majority of his songs discussing his relationships seem to have one thing in common; they’re discussing his multiple relation/situationship failures. If you listen to the songs he has the same character flaws as most men (particularly those in his age range) he is just adept at expressing said flaws through his affable/charming personality, a feat no doubt buoyed by his Über light-skindedness. You think Wale is getting these kinds of passes from the womenfolk? Nah bruh. Speaking of Wale, Drake is basically the living embodiment of Wale’s “The Matrimony” song.

      all true

    • That girl MEL!

      HE IS Wale’s Matrimony song!!! OH EM GEE!

    • panamajackson

      I feel like “Matrimony” is a Drake song that’s not as well written with not as good of a beat. It’s basically a Big Sean song that Wale decided to release.

      • Lea Thrace

        Wale, Drake,and Big Sean shade all in one comment. The trifecta of slander.

        Pure perfection.

      • JennyJazzhands

        Lol. I should not have been eating Graham crackers when I read this.

  • MzzPeaches

    “…Like he might mess up, but he’d apologize.”

    I think men really underestimate how much this really means, especially if it’s sincere. Drake is bae in my mind off his honesty alone. Like yeah, he fvcked up other relationships, but at least he can admit that in retrospect. That’s a lot more than some dudes can own up to.

    • Nick Peters

      depends what you are apologizing about and the reasons you are apologizing…half the time we are completely aware of what we are doing…….(personnel experience for Nick)

      • MzzPeaches

        Oh I know y’all kneegrows are very aware, that’s why when u don’t apologize after u know u fvcked up is the part that has us on the train to Crazytown w/ a transfer in Pettyville.

      • panamajackson

        That is so funny to me. You can cop to f*cking up a past relationship easy. It matters not if you make the same mistakes in the next one cuz you didn’t learn from it. Y’all really like apologies. They buy you like 6 months of inaction.

      • Lea Thrace

        this might be why the fire was set….

        • Tristan

          The “fire”

        • HeyBooHey

          I literally just yelped….

        • That’s what bothers me about his ilk. Just stop doing the same dumb and then crying about it.

          • Nick Peters

            I don;t cry about it….just give knowledge to those who ain’t about that life

    • Tristan

      Its easier to explain to the next girl how youve grown than it is to get the current to forgive your bullsh t

      • HeyBooHey

        Agree with the first point, never got the second. I’m the type that can forgive if you come totally clean and do so from a genuine place. Guys don’t believe some women can handle that

        • Tristan

          Who wants that baggage over their head when they can get a clean slate elsewhere

          • HeyBooHey

            Then don’t go for a clean slate but stay looking back at me and saying ish like “I should’ve worked it out with you”

            • Tristan

              You don’t know my life

              • HeyBooHey

                Who hurt you Tristan? Let me heal you boo…

      • MzzPeaches

        True, but I’ve met some kneegrows who were quite incapable of even doing that. I watch for the signs. If conversations involving ex’s all revolve around what they did wrong w/ the guy playing the victim- I exit stage left w/ the quickness.

        • Siante

          “If conversations involving ex’s all revolve around what they did wrong w/ the guy playing the victim- I exit stage left w/ the quickness.”

          I love this

    • I don’t think what Drake does is honesty as much as it is just mirroring. It’s the same technique that Casanova used to turn nuns into freaks over 400 years ago. It’s still game, it’s just that the woman doesn’t feel as exploited when it ends.
