I been through this before, I have experience with this ritual
How do you date with 2 headstrong individuals?
In order to make this work you might need a minor miracle
And not everyone you date is that spiritual
How both people in the relationship think they’re prized possessions?
Hell, we were taught not to lust after possessions
Therein lies a quandary that we haven’t yet learned the lesson
Both people think they’re catches, that’d confuse Odell Beckham
See we’re working on navigating this minefield
Not interested in expending energy to prove I’m real
If you like me? Fine. If not? That’s cool too
You ain’t gotta draw out your resume for me, this ain’t blue’s clues.
Lately dating has felt less like dating and more like job interviews
People posting their resumes wondering why they don’t have a job or two
Oops, I mean a man or two. Maybe you need to reconfigure your performance tools
Taking the excitement out of dating with all these sets of rules
Shakespeare said, expectation is the root of all heartache
You expected her to give you some because you took her to cheesecake
You expected to be in a relationship just because he made your legs shake
Nas expected Kelis to forget how to make the milk shake
You know, the one that made all the boys come to her yard?
I got to ask my OG’s, did dating back then get this hard?
Did social media really leave all these women scarred?
When did relationships start carrying a scorecard?
I took her here and I did this for her, so now she owes me some
Women having 90 days rules to prevent the hit and run
I did this and this for him so now we go together
Thinking like that? The easiest way to get high blood pressure
Can the relationship work if both people think they’re Beyoncé?
I know people who value the ring more than the fiancé
They think they’re prized possessions and we value self-confidence always
I’m just trying to figure out while it seems we’re in such disarray
