Ride or Die


So…if you listen to any hip hop song, the first thing you will hear, after saying how they want a thick, red bone, is that every man wants a down chick. A girl that will be there for them through everything…court hearings, multiple baby mamas, domestic violence chargers, etc. Being a ride or die chick is a quality that is valued in a relationship. For me, as a mother, I never understood how someone could be a ride or die for anyone but their kids. I’m not trying to do anything that will jeopardize them. But then when I dug deeper, I realized that it wouldn’t be that hard if it’s for that specific person. “Him” as I like to call them. If you have a “him” then it isn’t hard to be completely loyal to him. It’s something you will want to do. You want him to know that he can trust you with anything and if he needs you for whatever, then you are there.

I, personally, love the idea of a Bonnie and Clyde relationship. Now, I’m not saying we are going out robbing banks but we are a duo. Whether it’s the Bonnie and Clyde of the business world or the Bonnie and Clyde of sarcasm ;), just being part of something is the point of a relationship. If you can find that one thing that glues you together, then you are unstoppable.

Now fellas, if you want that ride or die chick, then you need to be the same for she. She shouldn’t have to ask you to have her back. It should be common knowledge. A man that sticks up for you at any given moment is exciting and makes you feel secure. So if you choose to be the ultimate, “ride or die,” for your partner make sure you do it right. It doesn’t have to be as glamorous as Hov and Bey make it seem in the video. Just simply have their back and hold them down. Trust me. It will do wonders for your relationship.
