LiLi’s Confessional

I’m meeting my best friend for drinks so I can tell her the crazy details about a date I had with this random dude. She knows that as of late I just can’t catch a break in the dating arena but always knows how to make me laugh and see the bright side of things.

Bessie

Girl what’s going on with you? Tell me the tea about this date, Bessie!

(They both call each other Bessie)

LiLi

GIRL! Where do I even begin?! I am just so DONE with these clowns in this here metro Detroit area!

[Bartender greets LiLi as he serves her a drink]

LiLi V.O.

I met this guy on Instagram. He happened to start following me and decided to slide in my DM to get to know me better. I thought he was good-looking and wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to meet someone new.

Bessie

Ok, so when did y’all go out?

LiLi

He asked me out on Saturday afternoon. At first we were going to meet up for coffee at a cafe somewhere downtown. An hour prior to the time we were supposed to meet, he text and asked me if I’d eaten anything. I told him no so he suggested we meet at one of my favorite restaurants not too far from his crib in Corktown. Chile, I get there and homeboy is lit UP and smelling like he got off a double shift at the dispensary!

(The ladies exchange laughs)

LiLi’s Confessional

Now listen, I’m all about that 420 power so I don’t judge. However I’m not one to let everyone in my business either. Always have that loud on deck, just make sure you ain’t the loudest person in a public setting. Homeboy didn’t have any tact with it and that’s not a good look.

Bessie

Girl you made him nervous so he had to get right before meeting up with you! That’s what you’re doing to em best friend?

LiLi

I guess or whatever! I didn’t mention anything about it. I just gave him a hug and sat down next to him at the bar. Thank God no one was close to us.

Bessie

How was the conversation?

LiLi

The conversation was good. You know me…if he can’t hold a decent conversation then he gets none of my attention! However, I noticed he didn’t order any food. I think he only ordered a glass of sangria after I ordered one so that made me wonder if we were going dutch at that point.

Bessie

LiLi V.O.

Here’s the thing fellas: if you ask a woman to go out, YES we are definitely expecting for you to pay the bill. There are absolutely no negotiations on this unless you say UPFRONT that it’s a dutch situation but that’s pretty much like asking for permission to not go out. There may be some who go for that and those who do must really like yo ass. Ain’t that much like in the world because I have friends who I can go dutch with. Hell, I have friends who ask me out and treat me!

Bessie

So you ended up paying for your own food, basically?

LiLi

You KNOW it! I wasn’t mad though because at least I knew he had that loud!

LiLi

He explained that he had fallen on hard times and was in-between jobs. I’m not even going to get into all of the reasons why he just needs to chill and not be on the hunt for new pwussay but you know that was going to be the first and last time I entertained “going out” with him. But guess what he did two weeks later, girl?

[Bessie leans forward in anticipation of LiLi’s next statement]

Bessie

What he do, girl?!

LiLi

This N-word texted me asking if I’d be in a threesome with him for his birthday!

Bessie

GIRL SHUT THE FAWK UP!

LiLi’s Confessional

I mean…what else is there to say after that? Boy bye!
