Hear what I’m trying to say.
At first, I was quite hesitant about making such a statement but I doubt I’m only speaking for myself when I say this. Ok. First of all, what you’re not about to do is come across my page and all it’s content only to hover your hefty finger to tap the DM button.
I think it says a lot about your approach if you’re only hitting me up because you deem me to be aesthetically pleasing. This isn’t like seeing me in person where you wouldn’t know what I do or perhaps, what I’m about. In person, of course you wouldn’t see my pinned tweet or the link in my bio. However, on social media, it just so happens that all of these things are chilling in the same space as the DM icon. And you’ve thought na, not that important.
It’s nice to know that you’d like to chat – no, honestly it is. I just think it would be nicer to know that someone who would like to speak to me (even if its temporarily) also rates what I’m doing. Supports what I’m doing even. Otherwise, what’s the point? In my opinion, its a disregard to the brand I’m trying build and disregarding the fact that I actually have substance.
A man might read this and think, “But I don’t care about all that. I just wanna see what you’re on…” and if that’s the case, then don’t DM me, my guy. I don’t want it.
Ladies, what are your thoughts on this? Is this an unreasonable request? #LADIESNGHT
