Kissing Frogs: Men Every Woman Dates Before Finding the One
The Man with Potential
This man wooed you with his slick tongue. Not only was he smart, he had goals, gurl. You discussed his business plan in depth. He made you believe so deeply in his purpose that you didn’t even stop to notice that baby boo wasn’t putting forth any effort to make said plans a reality. He wanted to be a restaurant owner but just couldn’t find the drive to get off the couch.
If he didn’t have trouble with his career potential, maybe it was the emotional potential he lacked. Judging by his words and an occasional action, you thought this man saw eye to eye when it came to your relationship dynamics. Yeah…no. He didn’t. Truth be told, you knew it all along but you thought, certainly he’d figure it out. Didn’t happen.
Lesson Learned: Dating “potential” is a risky business. If you win, you can win big (see Barack and Michelle Obama) but if you lose…(see Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.)
