When The Engagement Ring ain’t nothing but a thing…Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


ashlee-simpson2

Aw it’s so nice when two people fall in love and really want to spend the rest of their lives together. They may have a long-term courtship before the man decides to spring for a ring and sometimes under different circumstances. Some women are willing to cross the Atlantic ocean and lay down their lives just to get that ring!

The ring for some women serve the purpose as a status quo, they’d like to feel as though their ten, twelve, thirteen and/or twenty-five plus year courtship is going to another level. When in fact it’s really going nowhere, except to your weekly rendezvous at your local motel 6, hanging out at his place or your yearly get-aways to a remote location.

Sometimes the buck stops with the engagement ring and the relationship goes no further. Why is that? What happened to the man’s intent behind the giving of the ring? Did he just give you the ring to “get that thing“? And are you satisfied with wearing this “front?”

Tune into Conversations Of A Sistah tonight at 8:00 PM as I discuss how SOME engagement rings ain’t nothing but a thing! Access the show via Conversations Live“.

See you on the air!!!!

        She said a couple of months ago that she was working on a lucrative project. I think that’s why the stories may be a little slow. she only have time to post her shows nothing else too much right now.

    I don’t know if I’m ready for this topic 😆 I don’t know too many women who would get the ring and not insist on setting a wedding date. Then again the guy shouldn’t give a ring unless he intend to marry the girl. Great topic of discussion. I’ll be tuning in as usual.

  25. It’s been three weeks since you were looking for your friend
    The one you let hit it and never called you again
    Remember when he told you he was about the Benjamins?
    You act like you ain’t here him, but gave him a little trim

    To begin, how you think you’re really going to pretend
    Like you wasn’t down and you called him again?
    Plus when, you give it up so easy you ain’t even foolin’ him
    If you did it then, then you’d probably do it again

    Talking out your neck, saying you’re a Christian
    A Muslim, sleeping with the Gin
    Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
    Who’re you going to tell when the repercussions spin?

    Showing off your ass ’cause your thinking it’s a trend
    Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again
    You know I only say it ’cause I’m truly genuine
    Don’t be a hard rock, when you really are a gem

    Baby girl, respect is just the minimum
    Nigga’s creepin’ and you still defending him
    Now Lauryn is only human
    Don’t think I haven’t been through the same predicament

    Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly been
    It’s silly when girls sell their souls because it’s in
    Look at what you be in, hair weaves like Europeans
    Fake nails up out Koreans

    Come again
    Yo, when when come again
    When when come again
    My friend come again

    Guys you know you’d better, watch out
    Some girls, some girls are only, about
    That thing, that thing, that thing
    That thing, that thing, that thing

    The second verse is dedicated to the men
    More concerned with his rims and his Tim’s than his women
    Him and his men, come in the club like hooligans
    Don’t care who they offend poppin’ game, like you got yen

    Let’s stop pretend, the ones that pissed out by they waste men
    Cristal by the case men, still living in his Mother’s basement
    The pretty face men claiming that they be the big men
    Need to take care of their three and four kids

    But they face a court case when the child support’s late
    Money taking and heart breaking now you wonder why women hate men
    The sleepy silent men, the punk domestic violence men
    Quick to shoot the scene, stop acting like boys and be men

    How you gonna win, when you ain’t right within?
    How you gonna win, when you ain’t right within?
    How you gonna win, when you ain’t right within?
    Come again

    Yo yo, come again
    Bro-straight come again
    Sit straight come again

    Watch out, watch out
    Look out, look out
    Watch out, watch out
    Look out, look out

    Watch out, watch out
    Look out, look out
    Watch out, watch out
    Look out, look out

    Girls you know you’d better, watch out
    Some guys, some guys are only about
    That thing, that thing, that thing
    That thing, that thing, that thing

    Guys you know you’d better, watch out
    Some girls, some girls are only about
    That thing, that thing, that thing
    That thing, that thing, that thing
