So I have to open up and start gettin’ more real. This is the first installment in “The Playa’s Handbook”. The stuff you know, but either don’t wanna know, don’t wanna accept or don’t commit it to memory like you should. I’ll start with a few rules for the new to the game. But if you stay NEW to the game, you can’t be TRUE to the game. So listen up…
Rule #1: Don’t change the rules in the middle of the game; you will surely catch it.
Example of the rule being broken:
You normally answer your cell phone around your SO (or at least keep it on audible). Then you resort to not answering it OR always having it on vibrate. Now how you think SHE not gonna start questioning you? Then you try to make her think she crazy. Well be advised of rule #2 and then don’t fool yourself into believing she is not gathering evidence. If you don’t believe me, read my article “Homeland Security”.
Rule #2: Women are infinitely smarter and more cunning than men. Men think only in the moment…women plot and scheme. Because we’ve had alot of practice, we’re simply better. Besides…we cry if we get any where NEAR caught to make you feel bad about even accusing us.
Rule #3: The grass always looks greener on the other side…until you have to mow it.
Example: You and your SO are having issues. The Shorty at work is givin’ you some rhythm. Of course she looks cute…you don’t see her until she puts on all her make-up, she’s getting dressed for YOU and she ain’t bitchin’ about bills, kids, and washin’ your draws. The REAL woman is at home. Work on home b/c if you get caught even tryin’ to mow the grass….it’s gonna be “Your Ass is Grass”. If you do leave your mainy (main chick)…then you’ll be wonderin’ why the “grass” ain’t so green no more…OR your NEW GRASS now is checkin’ out another lawn. What goes around comes around.
Rule #4: Lawd ha mercy ladies….why are there women in the new millennium who STILL think that havin’ his baby will keep a man. OMG! I just really have no more to say about this. A true playa makes a decision that’s best for her…not any man. If you truly want to keep a baby, then make the decision on your own terms. And please don’t turn into a ghetto baby mama b/c he doesn’t like you….he really didn’t like you to begin with. And for God’s sake, don’t use the child as a pawn. A true playa admits mistakes and moves on….
Rule #5 Men will lie to keep someone even when they’re not 100% into them.
Don’t know why…just accept that it is what it is…and don’t take it too personally. They just really aren’t built to tell the truth even when it makes sense to tell the truth and the stakes are not even that high.
EX: You’re SORTA dating a woman (not 100% committed). Then she gets word that you were somewhere other than what you said….or you miss a date. Instead of telling the truth (hey it’s early in the game), you lie…even when it’s not necessary.
Just the beginning of a few thoughts that I’ve always had and said to myself….I should write a book on this. So consider this a pre-read and tune in b/c when you least expect it, there’ll be more entries. I’ve turned in my playa’s card, but I’ve forgotten more about the game than most will learn.
So stop cheatin’ ya self and start treatin’ ya self b/c it doesn’t get better than when I’m the pastor in the CHU-CH!
