Singer/songwriter Tank is use to getting the ladies hot and bothered with his music so it’s no surprise that he “Reintroduces the Language of ” for Rolling Out magazine. While he does give us a list of the five things that make women more attractive (including getting some goals and taking care of yourself!), he also shares what he believes are the real questions that fellas should be asking on a first date and what he wants his legacy to be:
Check out a few excerpts from the magazine below.
On the five things that makes a woman more appealingThe questions a man should ask, is spot on. Good Stuff!
Confidence: It’s going to be in your walk, in your posture, how you hold out your hand to introduce yourself, how you hold your head high like a queen.
Take Care of Yourself: Having your feet and hands all nice and done up — and your hair. I don’t care if it’s your hair, I don’t care if it’s the horse’s hair, but as long as the hair is done and it’s taken care of, that’s sexy.
Your : If your outfit is going to fit, let it fit. Show them what you got. And if it’s not going to fit, then let it flow and let it vibe.
Have Some Goals: Have some ambitions. Don’t let being pretty be your be-all [and] end-all. Actually, have some type of education or idea of what you want to accomplish.
Have a Love for Kids: I love a woman that loves kids. That’s sexy to me. I love a woman that’s nurturing, that’s ready to take care of and comfort [a child].
On the type of questions a man should ask when taking a lady out on the first date
When you’re entertaining a woman for the first time, the most important part about that time is that you’re paying attention to her. It’s all about her. Where she’s been, where she is in life, where she’d like to go and if she needs any help with getting there. Talk about her educational process, what it was like for her growing up, siblings and her worst fear. All of these things a woman to feel comfortable with expressing herself. If a woman feels like she can express herself and talk to a man, she lets her guard down and she becomes more comfortable, and that’s when you can have a real interaction. At that point, you’re no longer talking to the representative, but you’re actually talking to , soul and mind of that individual. Make love to her mind first and then we can get to the other places.
On his legacy
I want to be remembered as a hardworking black man. I don’t believe in handouts. I’m going to work for mine. When I look at myself in the mirror, I want to feel good about the man that I am and the work that I put in.
