Friend dating ex
In a recent interview on the radio show “Angie Martinez,” rapper TI talked about his long-term relationship with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, following cheating rumors and a divorce attempt.
He also claimed everything is still amicable, despite the drama that’s been simmering on social media.
Watching a friend go through an abusive relationship can be very scary and you may feel like you’re not sure how to help them.
The decision to leave can only be made by the person experiencing the abuse, but there a lot of things you can do to help your friend stay safe.
Even after realizing that there’s abuse, they may choose to stay in the relationship.
As a friend, try to be there for them because although they may not show it, they need you more than ever.
But the use of the word “friend” when referring to someone you had an intimate relationship with can come off as insulting… Although it may seem like a term of endearment, reducing someone to a friend after having a long, involved relationship – in this case, marriage – looks like an attempt to expunge a history you no longer want to be a part of.
It’s like putting someone in the friend zone after you have a full-blown, passionate affair.
But always remember this, giving your attention doesn’t necessarily mean you have to accept anything this friend says.If your friend or family member is undergoing the serious and painful effects of dating abuse, they may have a very different point of view than you.They may have heard the abuse was their fault and feel responsible.He said, “I can be a better best friend than a husband.”But this statement led Angie Martinez to shoot back, “Women hate to hear that shit.”To be fair, it seems evident TI was trying to imply he isn’t cut out for marriage.He wanted to explain it would be better they remained friends, instead of him continuing to damage their relationship in a spousal arrangement that isn’t for him.
