Tasha Smith Explains How To Keep a Man
Posted by Media Outrage on March 30, 2010
Tasha Smith is soon to be married and has a little advice for the ladies:
Honey Magazine: Why get married?
Tasha Smith: Get married so you can have love, partnership, and a best friend for the rest of your life. I’m going to get married at the end of the year. I cannot wait. He’s so sweet. He’s my buddy and he’s ride or die too.
Where did you meet him?
One of my friends set me up on a blind date and it’s been love ever since. He is amazing and beautiful. He’s the handsome man sitting in the back with the suit and tie on. He’s just a beautiful black man.
Has this relationship changed you?
I didn’t believe in love like that. I didn’t think it existed. I thought it was a fairytale dream—Alice in wonderland that would never happen. And I’m telling you, it is a miracle that I am experiencing the desires of my heart. He taught me how to believe in love and how to trust.
To all the single ladies out there, how can they find the one?
First of all women need to see the movie He’s Just Not That in to You, because for real for real we waste our time with people who are just not that into us. And you know how we think we are just going to change his mind and change his heart. Get him to see that we are that woman that he can be with for the rest of his life. He’s either into you or he is not. And get rid of him if he aint so you can be open for the one who is. And you’ll know it because you won’t have to question because he’s going to do everything that your heart desires. And I’m learning that.
Are there really women out there like the character you play, Angela, who demand their man’s phone password? What’s your advice to those women?
Hell yeah! They are just crazy and out of control. They need to stop trippin’ and stop living in fear because fear will distort and pervert your perception.
What are your top trade secrets for finding a man and keeping him?
1. Food… food and food! (She giggles in that new love kind of way)
2. Don’t be Afraid to Let Go
I was going out with this guy and I remember there were things happening within the relationship where I just said you know what this ain’t it and be okay with it. And I remember he called me up one day and I said you know you can really stop pursuing me because I am no longer interested. But you know sometimes as women we just want to hold on to him as long as we can and when I cut it off there was a freedom.
3. Tell the friends and family to mind their business
We have to learn how to love each other, trust each other, and encourage each other and support each other. And not let our friends get in our business. And don’t let our families rule our relationship.
