So last night was the "Being Mary Jane" Finale on BET. I'm not going to lie, only the first 30 minutes of the show, with Mary Jane getting her promotion to prime time television, and the last 30 minutes of the show, with the dating and then not dating of Mary Jane and Sheldon was the only things worth watching to me. I had written a blog about Being Mary Jane last week on Mary Jane's Relationship ups and downs and how they relate so much on what's going on today. NOW, this dude Sheldon THOUGH...THIS DUDE RIGHT HERE...TO ME...IS THE REAL MVP! This Dude is Everything that Mary Jane wants and needed and she didn't even know it! This Dude reminds me...of well...ME! I'm looking at this show thinking, "This is what MORE MEN need to want to be like!" I'm going to give you the reasons why I think Sheldon is THE MAN!
1. Sheldon was a COMPLETE GENTLEMAN
& HAD His Stuff Together
Sheldon was a very successful writer and author. Dude had bread, nice crib, successful career. That was everything a Woman like Mary Jane wanted and desired. He was the full package. He had swag, he knew about culture and nice things. THEN, he knew how to treat a Woman RIGHT and with RESPECT! Made sure she had what she needed when she stayed the night, cooked dinner for her, even didn't FLIP OUT when she pissed in his bed while they were sleep! Sheldon was a complete Gentleman to a Woman who didn't even respect it I feel or appreciate it.
2. Sheldon Turned Mary Jane On In Ways
She Hadn't Been Before
Mary Jane had heard about Sheldon's skills in bed and was instantly turned on. He was a deep talker and thinker. He made Mary Jane think differently about things that intrigued her and it made her want to learn more about him. They were both madly successful and busy but still for themselves staying on the phone late nights talking like they were teenagers. She let go of her Cutty Buddy because she truly wanted to know so much more about this Man and it made her commit to him.
3. Sheldon Wasn't Intimidated By Mary Jane's
Success or Smart Mouth
Mary Jane had her stuff together and a smart mouth that came with her, and she used that stuff to intimidate weaker men & made them feel below her. Sheldon straight told Mary Jane, "I know that I'm your best option." SHOOT, lets be honest, HE WAS! He was single, had an amazing career and life made for himself. NO, he may not have wanted to get married and have kids, that wasn't the dream and life he wanted for himself, that's what Mary Jane wanted. He was afraid to tell her YES, I want you, but NO, I don't want that type of life with you. It was nothing wrong with him being REAL. NOW, should he have maybe said it differently...possibly. BUT, when a Chick wants to be petty with a Man, like Mary Jane was A LOT, he has a right to be petty right back with her! Checked her with Respect! He didn't get crazy or yell like crazy at her, he spoke his mind and let her know where he stood as a Man.
