Save the Drama For the Unhappy

Our relationship was like a sick crossbreed between, Cheaters, Basketball Wives, and Waiting to Exhale. Talk about drama for your mama. Of course we had our gay moments, plenty of them actually. But they were far and between and short lived due to doubt, denial, and mistrust. Sure it was entertaining and made for great television, but it was all at my hearts expense and definitely not the biopic I wanted to tell.

And now? My answers are short and sweet. “Gay,” “Good,” “Awesome,” “AMAZING.” Not quite an action packed thriller, and nowhere near being a fairytale ending (not yet at least) BUT it’s definitely a fairytale beginning and I’ll take it. Because while I can see how drama can add a little spice to what might be seen as something bland, in no way does it have to be boring without it.

A while ago my homie told me that drama is necessary in order to make a relationship last. You don’t even have to re-read that, because I’ll write it again. A RELATIONSHIP NEEDS DRAMA IN ORDER TO LAST. Afterall, it’s those volatile, “Love the Way You Lie” romances and dysfunctional relationships that keep us in love, and the best make-up sex derives from the worst arguments right? WRONG.

The novelty may seem appealing and exciting at first, but ultimately, “a bright flame burns twice as fast.” Even Eminem broke up with Kim. Besides, explosive sex comes from red wine, good D, flexibility, creativity, and a mean head game. Thought you thought.

Drama in a relationship is sometimes inevitable, but never necessary in my book. I’m not saying to go get involved with some lame just because you feel safe with him, I’m saying that you can have that ridiculous, inconvenient love and out of this world sex life without the insecurity, without the lies, and without having to call the cops.

But if that’s what you want, that’s what you’ll get. In the mean time, I’ll sit back and watch your show just as soon as I’m done snorkeling in the Atlantic, eating mofongo in South Beach, poppin bottles, dressing in a ‘lil school girl outfit, having insane balcony sex, and watching the sun rise with mine … ‘cuz those are just SOME of the many ways to keep a relationship UN-boring without all the dramatics.
