R&B singer Ashanti recently spoke on her dating lifestyle and what she needs in a man who is trying to win her over.
Asked if she could find herself sleeping with a man after a first date, the former Murder Inc. princess revealed she is not an easy-going woman.
"Never, nah, you're waiting almost a year. It's not going that easy," Ashanti revealed in an interview when asked if she has sex on a first date. "[laughs] [Landing strip or bare?] Ohh. Bare? No, landing strip as long as it's cute, nice and neat. Bare makes me think of a child molestor. [Physical feature I need a man to have?] You have to have nice lips, you have to have a nice mouth -- [Instant turn on?] [laughs] You have to smell good. I like cologne. Not really strong, strong. ... [Date outside your race?] I have. I had a Puerto Rican. [Missionary or doggy?] Oh God. Um. Let me think, how can I say this nicely and put it. I like to stand on top of things. [laughs]" (Hot 107.9)
Back in 2010, Ashanti's speculated ex-boyfriend/rapper Nelly spoke on their bond and possible wedding bells down the road.
"[Our relationship] is the same it's always been," Nelly said in an interview when asked about the singer. "We're really good friends, you know? I think that's the thing people don't understand. I say that because you know it's like society puts a pressure on you 'cause they want to see it turn into a certain relationship. You see what I'm saying? But if that relationship don't work, then society doesn't take the responsibility of when it don't work. [laughs] You know what I'm saying? It's kind of like, 'Oh, oh, okay, we'll move on to the next couple we want to see.' I think what people don't understand is I think you really have to be friends first. I think that's the thing. It's not about how long it takes because there's no time limit on this. I'm not a person that wants to get married more than once. You see what I'm saying? ... If I'ma do it, I'ma do it and that's it. You're dying if you leave me. Right now we're friends, man, I'm married to my work, [my new album] 5.0. You see what I'm saying? I'm married to getting things in a certain situation right now and she's married to getting things in a certain situation right now. So again, man, we enjoy each other's company and love it."

Earlier that same year, Nelly called out past reports suggesting Ashanti was his girlfriend.
"I've never said I was in a relationship, she's never said she's in a relationship, so I don't know where they do that at," Nelly told host Swain. "But the thing is, we've always admitted we're friends. We hang out. She's a sweet girl, very pretty girl, very talented, but she does her thing as far as her career and I'm doing my thing as far as my career now. The end results are inconclusive." (WCGI)
Following his initial denials, Ashanti also said she never officially claimed to be his lover.
"So one of the rumors that I would like to clear up, the whole Nelly-Ashanti, and Nelly's denying and Nelly's not claiming; let's clear that up right now," she told BET.com. "Me and Nelly are good friends. I never said I was his girl, I never quote, unquote, 'claimed him,' I never said we were an item and neither has he, so there you have it. We're good friends. The whole, 'oh he's denying and she's denying,' no claiming. Come on, son!" (BET)
