I guess you can say since the Obama’s has been in the White House everybody and their momma wanna know how did Michelle Obama get a great catch of man.
Katie: Candice Jones from Memphis wanted to know how you landed such a good guy. Maybe he landed you, right? “Did you know that Mr. O was a great catch when you met him? What dating advice can you give a 26-year-old professional?”
M.O.: He was always special, you know? And not special, like, He’s gonna be important, he’s gonna be president. He was special in terms of his honesty, his sincerity, his compassion for other people. Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? That’s the advice I would give to women: Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn’t know. And, more important, how does he treat you? When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good. You should never feel less than. You should never doubt yourself. You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole. And if you’re in that relationship and you’re dating, then my advice is, don’t get married.
I will admit that Barack Obama is a very sexy and ambitious man. The only thing I want to add to this dating advice is instead of looking at his bankbook make sure he is on the same level as you are.
If you are getting up to go to work he need to be getting up to go to work too. No bums. No taking care of man.
Just make sure he is just ambitious as you are.
