If you take a look at some of the top hip hop songs that use the term “Ride or Die chick,” like “03 Bonnie and Clyde” by Jay-Z and Beyonce, “Down A*s B*tch” by Ja Rule and Charli Baltimore or “You’re All I Need” by Method Man and Mary J. Blige the theme behind the term is clear: when you’re someone’s ride-or-die, you’re his oxygen, his fuel, his grounding force while also his partner in crime…you get the idea. While the term may have originated in a sense to describe a woman who would support her partner in a dangerous and illicit activity, it has mellowed out a bit to describe a woman who will be by her partner’s side through all of life’s adventures, challenges, and downfalls. But that all sounds a bit dramatic, doesn’t it? Sometimes, you don’t need to skydive into shark-infested waters to prove you’re his ride-or-die. Women in committed relationships know that this is what it really means to be his ride or die chick.
He can drop you into any social setting
Your partner doesn’t need to worry about you having fun, or saying something you shouldn’t, in any social situation. If you go with him to a networking event, he doesn’t have to stick by your side the whole time, until you feel comfortable going off on your own. You instantly say, “I got this. Go talk to the people you need to see” and you charm the pants off that room. Your partner doesn’t need to be preoccupied with what you’re doing at all—his mind is free to have those important networking conversations. Meanwhile, you’re out there making him look good.
