LisaRaye practicing celibacy? LisaRaye is no stranger to speaking her mind, and the actress has always been open about her disastrous experiences with men and relationships. Now divorced, while she continues to bulk up her acting resume and is a lead actress on VH1’s hit show “Single Ladies” she recently revealed she’s trying a new approach to love and romance. In fact, her new approach is actually celibacy, and she says she decided to hold out from “doing the deed” until she builds a solid foundation with a man first. LisaRaye says she never actually taken her time to build a foundation with the men she’s dated and she thinks that could be where she went wrong. She tells Cocoa Fab:
“I’m in a new place. I’ve tried everything but celibacy, and I really want to know what it feels like to be touched by someone with a mental touch and not a physical touch. I want to know what it is to build the foundation of the friendship for real, to have my best friend and not because we’re just intimate, but because we’re mentally intimate. So I’m waiting for that person to come into my life. And when I get myself together, I know God is gonna bless me with that, because I don’t want to come with extra baggage. I’ll come with some, but it’s not fair to him to come with a whole bunch.”
What do you think about LisaRaye’s comments? Does she make a good point? Should women focus more on building solid foundations before becoming physical with men they are interested in? Speak on it below.
