I decided to do something different on this week's edition of Single Lady Wednesday. You see, I've become quite the expert at deciphering the truth out of the "sweet talk". So I thought I'd do humanity a bit of good by providing just a few examples of translations.
All are based on actual events and conversations that have occurred in my life. Yes. Really.
"I'm an entrepreneur."
This one is so prevalent in South Florida. These clowns are broke ass fools that likely borrowed money from one of their 8 roommates to take you out for a couple drinks at a bar that smells so foul the fumes could melt metal.
"I have rowdy roommates."
Ah, yes. I remember when I was told this on a date with a guy. The date had been going pretty well, and then he very uneasily, much like a nuclear bomb, disclosed that he still lived at home. No, nobody in his family was sick. Yes, he had a good job. These types generally want a "mom" not a girlfriend. Hell nah.
"I need to hit the gym."
This is actually one of those rare cases where he is probably being honest. But there is a very high statistical probability that he is at least 15 pounds heavier than in his outdated profile pictures.
"I'm a total gentleman."
He's going to try to sleep with you within 17 seconds of meeting you.
