Atlanta’s own Chilli (of TLC fame) is the focus of a new dating reality show on VH1. This is the same network that brought such shows as Tough Love, Rock of Love, and now What Chilli Wants. Well, according to the trailer, what she wants is too much, which is why she has had problems finding the one.
I’m sure in some bizarro world of reality television, Chilli could actually have a problem with a dating relationship. I’m curious enough to watch just to see if she struggled with some of the same hangups many of us had and may still have. Finding random and nonsensical reasons not to give someone a shot.
Watching a few scenes from the show made me laugh out loud, especially when Chilli’s friend, music producer, Missy Elliot said she should just “Date Jesus”. Clearly she was implying that no person walking the earth could meet any criteria that is totally unrealistic.
However, for argument’s sake, if anyone could pull off having a firm grip on a dating checklist, why couldn’t she? The woman is beautiful, famous, and probably has a pretty sweet personality. Why shouldn’t she have her bar set pretty high?
Would someone that was not in the limelight actually handle dating her with finesse and class?
I’m just wondering, is it about settling for someone you don’t want or dating Jesus? Isn’t there another door or A new option that we don’t talk about: staying unmarried?
Do you think that every single/uncoupled person who has not met the one should reconsider all of their standards? Is waiting for as long as it takes to find the one a selfish and unrealistic decision?
