Another Wednesday is upon us and an all new Diva’s Wanna Know! This series gives a voice to Divas all around the world so they can get their questions answered by our panel of men about everything from relationships, careers, and more. Here’s this weeks questions:
Do you think it’s important to feed yourself spiritually? If so, how do you feed your soul?
“I think it’s very important. I believe it’s what keeps you grounded to a theme and a purpose in your life. I try to stay actively involved my place of worship. I read a verse in the Scriptures that relates to a specific dilemma or even a character trait I’m trying to develop. Wisdom and Humility are the two that I’ve been trying to work on and master.” -The Gent Movement
“My mentor always told me to be careful what you listen to and who you hang around with. Those two things can mold who you are so you got to be on-point when you’re out there. There’s certain things I’ll do to get my mind right whenever life is feeling a bit cluttered and that’s necessary the older I get.” -Hanz Nobe
As a man do you feel that women’s standards are too high when they are looking for someone to date/be in a relationship with?
“Honestly, I keep finding that standards are too low. All too often, my guy friends end relationships on account of real issues that would jeopardize a relationship in the future, i.e. neurotic behaviors or a lack of interest in excelling in life. On the other hand, I have several of my female friends, if not most in relationships just because their emotions cater to it. Boyfriends have no jobs, depend on their girlfriends for cash and a place to stay, and despite all of these obvious flaws, are “unconditionally loved.” It is not love to allow your partner to be complacent in their own mediocrity, it’s the opposite. Standards are specific to the individual of course, but I wouldn’t lower my standards by any means. Alter them, perhaps, but never lower reasonable standards to accommodate someone unwilling to grow” -Nikoli
“I don’t feel that women have high standards. I do feel however that we [women & men] have a hard time un:learning bad lessons we were taught, maybe even those we weren’t meant to learn. Perhaps women set high standards because of past experiences but examining past failures is of no value. All of us can have what we want, first we have to be sure we know what it is.” -Mr. Tramuel
