Michelle Obama is not only on tour promoting her chart-topping and bestselling book Becoming, but she is also dropping some essential gems along the way.
In one of her stops, Twitter user Shelby Ivey Christie shared a video of the former First Lady offering some indispensable dating advice to both sexes.
For the brothers, she told them to stop beating about the bush and declare their intentions, just like Barack did.
“Brothers, another thing, do not play games, he wasn’t playing games, that was another thing. He was like, ‘I like you, let’s figure this out.’ It wasn’t like ‘Well, I’m trying to do these kind of things,” she said, with the audience applauding and laughing.
“No, trust me I had plenty of that, people just trying to keep their options open. I was sick of that. Barack was like, ‘Nope, this is who I am, this is what I think we want, let’s give it a shot.’ He was clear, gentlemen. He was clear!”
About what the ladies should expect from suitors, she urged them to keep their bar high.
“It’s hard enough. With a high bar it’s hard. So you don’t want to start, you know, making huge, huge compromises in who you are and how you want a man or a partner to show up in your life,” she said.
“I think it helped that I wasn’t looking, you know, that I wasn’t thirsty. That I was pushing him off a little bit and he had to work a bit.”
