YMCL: What’s your story?
LA: One night I went to the basketball court to shoot around. When I get there I notice my friend Jarmel playing a game with this girl; but I still just wanted to shoot so I asked if I could join. When I did, I felt like the girl doubted my immaculate skill on the court, so I decided to show her up (buzzed and all). So, I began dribbling/flying past/crossing her (all at once) until she was like, “okay, yeah, you’re the truth”.
Once she realized that and gave me props, I decided to give her some sweat to keep for herself while I chilled for a while. Well, when she received the sweat, she seemed very ungrateful in the fact that she had the audacity to get upset! So I stayed for a minute just to talk to her and cool her down, and we ended up really engaged in conversation.
As the night lingered on, I yearned for hydration in the form of H2O; so I invited her to join me. Well, she did; and as any good host would do, I served her first. When I got ready to serve myself, I noticed she had finished, but there was more left in her cup; so I just took it and drank the rest… after that, something happened… She wanted to “make out” with me. So we did….. that is, until my friends came in .
Then we left so I could walk her home but ended up detouring *wink wink* to other make out stops along the way. After that day, we met up a lot. Then came my birthday (rubs hands as eyebrows raise while flashing an evil grin). I invited her over. Maaaan, we had the strippers, drugs, liquor, etc. but for some odd reason, she wasn’t feeling it, so we ended up leaving to a less lively area, and I was convinced, “Yeah, she wants the D”.
One long night of passion ensued until the break of dawn. It was on this night I found out she was a virgin. After that, I couldn’t just leave her high and dry, so I made her my girlfriend.
YMCL : When did you “just know” ?
LA: I “just knew” after THAT night… If she thought enough of me to give me the one thing she couldn’t take back, then I knew she thought enough of me to give me more (love, security, hope, etc.)
YMCL: How did you propose?
LA: I kept asking her all types of questions about what type of ring she wanted and she just answered so nonchalantly not knowing I was on my way to Walmart. She’d been feeling bad in her first trimester and so I wanted to do something to cheer her up. I came in smiling and she was like “what are you doing goofiness?” And I proposed I was like “it was only $100 but I love you more than that and when I get in a better position I will get you another one.” But she didn’t care!! She loved it!! Sported it like it was yellow gold! Still got it too!
YMCL: How is Married life?
LA: I LOVE MARRIED LIFE! (Sometimes)- I say that because it feels great to have someone close by at all times that you know has your best interest in mind and is available to love and love on you 24/7. Sometimes it’s not so great because that person knows how to push your buttons, and you can’t just be like, “shut up before I kick you out”, you know?… Those times when you just have to tolerate them because you KNOW they’re not going anywhere… But I suppose, those are the prime times life insurance policies pay off. So even then, it has the potential to be a win-win, lol… Jk. But “I” personally love it.
YMCL: What do you wish you knew before taking that step?
LA: The thing I wish I would’ve known before marriage is that she doesn’t cook (Nuff said). Lol naw but she’s learning!
YMCL: What advice would you give readers considering marriage?
LA: As for advice, I would say, make sure you are ready for that commitment, because there will be times of Heaven as well as Hell. But if you are not prepared to stick it out with that person through the roughest times, you shouldn’t be selfish and take time away from them meeting another person who will. Finding someone with whom you can spend your time with is the best. Point and case: it’s now 2:19 a.m. And we’re up watching movies and frying fish #just enjoying each other!
**Update** In her post she mentioned me being a “drugee” I just want to say I am NOW drug and cigarette FREE!!!!!!
