“You get a good man, then you b*tches act simple.” – Troy to Robin in the movie Waiting to Exhale
If you’ve seen this movie, you know Troy wasn’t really a good man, but his point still stands.
Women out there are getting good men and then acting SIMPLE. It’s equivalent to buying a toddler an expensive toy. Although the toddler may enjoy the toy you can’t count on the toddler to have the maturity level to truly take care of and appreciate the toy.

Your ex did that same thing and he was with that hoe! Twenty minutes later you’ve sent 5 angry text messages only to discover he’d been in the shower. Oh. You’ve ruined your new relationship because you refused to move out of crazy-girl-ville.
