Lessons from Baby Boy



Watched the clip? Ok good, now lets discuss...

I gotta say, i've always questioned the validity of that statement. "I lie to you cuz i care about your feelings" Hmmmm. Do any of you agree with the statement? Why or why not?

  1. You say sh!t like that to babes who can't swallow the truth. You basically know how they would react and decide to avoid the drama.

    1. well since the world seems to want to force it down my throat that "people make mistakes" and "just because he/she cheated doesn't mean they don't love you" i'm forced to believe that amidst the selfishness of this statement, there is a nugget of truth there.

  2. haha that's bull joo. Maybe lies like 'does my butt look fat in this' but not serious issues concerning our relationship - affairs, finances, drugs, family.

    1. LOL, most times people use this line its in reference to cheating. As in "I tell my hoes that they are just hoes but i lie to wifey about my extracurricular activities to spare her feelings"

  3. Don't lie to me at all, cos if you do, when do I know to trust you?

  4. At some point, Baby Boy was my relationship bible. I knew every line and quoted it to anyone who cared to listen (and some who didn't) but as I've grown older, I've found that I prefer honesty to lies because lies just give you a false sense of security and it is just delaying the inevitable. So lay it on me and let's get it over and done with.

    1. You know, someone somewhere wrote a blog post about how many young women looked to Baby Boy as a relationship guide and i could never see why. I mean, yeah it was pretty clear that Jody loved Yvette and they eventually had their happily ever after but that relationship was not healthy at all. All that cheating and having a baby with the next chick...smh. I understand in the context what he means when he says he cares about her feelings that's why he doesn't throw his indiscretions in her face but who wants the indiscretions to happen at all?!? /end rant (lol)
