Jill Scott Reveals Six Month Dating Rule
Jill Scott says you won’t catch her in relationships that last longer than six months unless she happens to encounter an extremely remarkable guy whom she sees herself having a pretty solid future with. Having loved and lost, the With This Ring actress says that she has learned quite a bit—so much so that she has a six-month cut off period for her romantic relationships.
“I’m older now so I see a little bit better than I did before. My longest relationships now are about nine months,” she told ABC News Radio. “Actually, now it’s grown to six months.”
Within that time span, Scott says she usually learns all she needs to know about a man and whether or not she has found someone worth moving forward with.
“There’s no need for me to waste my time or anybody else’s. I know by then. If you make it over the six month hump, you have done something. I must really like you.”
The one-time divorcee went on to say that genuine love for self and your partner is a must to sustain a lasting marriage.
“You can hold your stomach in for four hours, but you can’t hold it in forever,” she metaphorically explained. “You have to be who you are and you have to genuinely love who you love in order to have a lasting marriage. Getting married is one thing; staying married is something else.”
What are your thoughts on Jill’s six-month dating rule? Would you say that she’s on to something?
