I am one of those people that is dedicated to their career and can absolutely appreciate if you are as well.
TLC's Scrub requirements (and how I do not meet them):
A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly
And is also known as a buster
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass
*I will probably only say that I'm fly as a joke. I know that I have the capacity to be quite dashing or handsome at times, but won't brag about it. I have never been described as a buster. I do have goals and will talk about them, but I'm also financially stable and responsible enough to reach them if it involves money.
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hanging out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holler at me
*I won't yell at you while being a passenger with the intentions of romantic acknowledgement.
If you don't have a car and you're walking
If you live at home with your mamma
If you have a shorty but you don't show love
Wanna get with me with no money
*I purchased a brand new Honda CR-V in October 2015 and have put 20k miles on it already. Mostly highway and adventure miles, but some of those have been mundane work travel. I actually graduated high school while not living with my parents, and haven't had a roommate since early 2013. I am not into the cheating or poly lifestyle, so I wouldn't be talking to you if I were already in a relationship with someone else. Also, I am financially stable and would hope that you are as well.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I dislike first dates. Neither party is really comfortable. We should somehow skip them. I'll figure out a way to skip them. Or, you can? Or we could just duel. We can't Netflix and chill though. That's how you get pregnant and that is not what I want at this point in life. Let's not jump into the kids thing, okay? We'll go a bit slower than that. Golly, it's only the first date. We don't need the added commitment of 18+ years looming over our heads to add to the already present awkwardness.
