I know y’all got relationship goals. I know y’all not trying to live out a Kevin Gates meme.
Here some personal relationship goals if you don't have any.
I AINT NOBODY. LOOK GOOD FOR YOU.
If I’m with you then you look good to me regardless. Makeup or no makeup. Fancy clothes or not. Don’t feel pressured to always look good for me. I don’t want to put that pressure on my partner. Now of course there will be times where we wanna look good for each other naturally and kill the game and be like “Yeah this outfit I’m bout to bust out bout to have me looking fye like a plate of hot wings to my boo” Aint nothing wrong with that I just don’t want to make someone I’m with feel like they’re obligated to dress up for me every time they see me. I aint nobody. Your company all I need.
MY FAMILY CARE FOR YOU MORE THAN ME.
If my family meets you and stop giving a fuck about me and they’re only concerned about where you at and why you not with me when I visit then that means you’ve passed the test and worth keeping. It’s a bittersweet feeling. I come over to my fam crib and I'm trying to make jokes and shit and they don’t give a fuck. They just like “Nigga shut the fuck up. Where she at?” They making her to go plates and she not even here. They not leaving me shit. It’s crazy. I walk through the door and they looking behind me like “I know this nigga ain’t come by himself.”
NOT AFRAID TO EAT
Can’t have someone who trying to look cute while they eating. Again I’m just Benny. You don’t have to impress me all day everyday. You better tear that food up in front of me like you Maxine Shaw from "Living Single" before I do it for you. A woman afraid to eat in front of people might be a serial killer. I can’t risk it.
SEXTING ME WHEN LADIES NIGHT IS ALMOST OVER
Some women super upfront and some are subtle with it. When she out with her friends and they all drunk she’s gonna text me either “You up?” or something very filthy and real like “Nigga you better not be sleep. You gotta blow my back out.” Either or is fine with me. I’m not gonna judge anyone for either approach. You are who you are. Do what makes you comfortable. Women be hella aggressive after they come home from a night out with their friends. She bout to eat her fast food then you next. Start stretching.
WE LIKE EACH OTHER’S FRIENDS
I think a underrated part of relationships is when you like each other's friend. I’m honored when I date someone and her friends trust and like me. I actually value their approval to date their friend. I take that really seriously. I also like to be there for them too if I can help them in anyway I can. Hanging out won’t feel like a job when everyone likes each other. Once your friends start asking “What y’all doing” instead of “What you doing?” That means your relationship real. Y’all a package deal now. If you don’t like your partner’s friends and vice versa everything will get strained.
I don’t want my girl to give me all her time and forget about her friends and family. Hang out with your homies. Don’t toss them to the side for me and go ghost on them. You can balance your time with everyone. I’ll make sure to help you do it. This goes for me too. We both had lives before we made this commitment and it’s important to give each other space. Our lives are in collaboration with each other. We don’t have to ditch our friends for each other.
SEX NOT THE FOCUS
Every time we see each other doesn’t mean we need to be fucking. I feel like sometimes that’s everyone else’s obligation. It’s like us relaxing with each other isn’t enough and we have to have sex or us chilling together is pointless which shouldn’t be the case. Now if that’s the energy we have and it’s organic then I don’t mind but if one of us not feeling it then I don’t want us to force intimacy. We can chill and watch Season 2 of Hey Arnold and eat junk like the power couple we are.
DON’T WATCH SHIT WITHOUT ME
I swear if you watch a episode of a show without me that we were watching together I will give you the silent treatment until further notice. It bothers me. I don’t care if you watched it and then watched it with me again to make me feel better. It’s the principal. You better wait on me like you would want me to wait on you. I want someone who understands this.
TALK TO ME ABOUT EVERYTHING
I don’t ever wanna make my partner feel that they can’t talk to me about things. That’s the worse feeling ever. I always wanna be there for who I’m with emotionally and ready to shut the fuck up and listen to whats on her mind and in her heart. I want her to feel that whatever she’s thinking and wanna talk about she can bring to me without ever feeling judged for doing so. Whether I agree or disagree doesn’t matter. It’s about me being there to support regardless.
TEXT ME RANDOM FUNNY SHIT
I like getting texts of meme’s, funny ass videos, funny ass tweets and stats. Especially if I’m at work. I need that shit sometimes to get through the day.
HER AND MY MOMMA JOANING ON ME IN MY FACE AND BEHIND MY BACK.
That’s real love right there. They tag teaming a nigga while I’m there and behind my back. It shows that they care about a nigga unconditionally and that my momma trust you too. She wouldn’t let no weak ass bitch she dont trust joan on me in her presence. She might just swing on her.
YOU KNOW HOW TO ARGUE
You know your relationship trash when every argument automatically means the relationship is on the line and it may end because of it. That’s not wavy. Having a person who can argue without feeling like “We gotta breakup” is a mature person I want around me. They understand that we’re just disagreeing with each other and it’s not any deeper than that.
LOVE HERSELF MORE THAN SHE LOVES ME
It’s mandatory. I need a woman that loves herself with me and loves herself without me. I’m just a bonus to her life. I don’t know if you guys ever been in a relationship with people who don't love themselves but it’s like prison and there is no fun. Everything is judgmental and everything is drama. No bueno.
TACOS ARE A PRIORITY
What is love without tacos and margaritas? It’s mid.
