What he said.
Tristan “Mack” Wilds is giving his interesting perspective on relationships….and it’s all truth and nothing but the truth.
The talented entertainer, who is currently prepping for the release of his second album, hit the nail on the head recently during a lengthy chat with XONecole where he gave his two cents on dating, marriage, relationships and courting.
Speaking specifically on the diminishing concept of men courting women before hopping into a relationship….or a bed…Mack points out how the Internet age now gives guys the full view of things they previously had to wait to see.
“I think men and women on both sides have different expectations, and I think even in this information age, we are too privy to a lot more information that we usually would get during a courtship scene, or during that romancing phase. So when you would take a girl out and chill with her you possibly realize where her mind is, or to even get even deeper, to see what her body looks like outside of her clothes. Now you can go on Instagram and see all of that.”
While he recognizes just how much of an influence social media has had on the way men and women interact before meeting face to face, the Staten Island native doesn’t believe the mystery aspect of dating is completely a thing of the past.
“I think there still is going to be mystery when you first meet someone because you have to figure out who they really are,” says Wilds. “You can only get so much from a tweet, or you can only see so much on Snapchat or on Instagram”.
Mack also stressed the importance of maintaining balance in relationships, even in the midst of searching for a partner who is independent and can hold their own.
“I think one of the biggest things about love that a lot of people don’t realize is the balance,” he said. “You can’t be a man if you expect your woman to be a man. It’s a balance. You’re putting too much on one side of the scale. People should look at love a lot more like a balance system, especially now that there are so many strong-minded, amazing women that can go out here and hustle.”
