[In light of the upcoming Think Like a Man flick dropping this Friday, SOHH's asking your favorite Hollywood stars and hip-hop celebrities for some relationship advice. Today, "Love & Hip-Hop" leading lady Yandy Smith and OutKast affiliate Killer Mike dish out their dating warning signs.]
Yandy Smith says...
I would say a guy that brags too much is a turn-off. When you have it, you have it. You don't have to flaunt it. That's a big negative sign you should be looking out for on a date.
Then you have to see if a guy is taking care of himself. A guy that doesn't take time to take care of himself isn't a good sign. You can tell this if he looks sloopy, needs a haircut, his nails aren't clean, you might want to watch out for that because that means he didn't take the time. That could mean he isn't really into you as much as you are to him.
As women, we get cute and super fly. If he comes raggedy, smelling and looking bad, you really need to take note of that and run far, far away. I don't think it could get any better as time goes on.
When you're in a relationship, I think you have to look at the situation. Maybe if it's a guy dealing with a young boss executive, it may be something that he's not used to. I think it's all about compromise. I think if you guys are both comfortable with where you are and where you stand, and want to do better, you're going to help each other do better.
You have to be each other's support system. He should support her and she can help him get to her level. If you're willing to compromise, I think the relationship could work. That's kind of the mindframe I would have if I had someone that wasn't necessarily at my career level or whatever the case may be. We can get there together. If I'm good, he's good. That's how I feel.
.... and so Killer Mike says:
First off, I don't think no chick is ready to settle down until she's 30. They don't know what the f*ck they want. And you have to make sure not to get serious about any type of relationship until you're 30.
Your 20's are f*cking awesome, so enjoy them. Go out and have some fun, go to the Dominican Republic. Honestly, and all women say this sh*t, if a woman starts giving you the speech on how good she is and can be everything a man needs? Just get up and walk away from the table.
You have to avoid that. And most times it's our own fault because we tell them to eat whatever they want, tell them they mean the world to us, and one day they're going to f*ck up a young man's life because of that. So the minute that motherf*cker tells you I'm all you need, get up, turn around, walk out the door and don't look back because she's full of sh*t.
