Whoa! LOL Jilly from Philly wastes no time… In a recent interview with Essence Magazine Jill explains that she only dates men for 6 months! Hey, I can understand that… I mean she has been married once, then engaged and now she’s currently single. At this point I’m sure she knows exactly what she wants!
With her most recent role in the Lifetime Movie “With This Ring” which I might add was really a good movie. It had me thinking about my relationships and what I really want out of them as well. On the subject of her role Jill Scott says…
“The movie made us all think about what we’re doing. For Regina and I, the two single girls, we really thought about what it is we want,”
Now what does she want? Jill’s character in the movie feels pressured to “complete” their lives by getting married within a year. She says she usually knows when she’s met someone special after about six months of dating.
“I’m older now so I see a little bit better than I did before. My longest relationships now are about nine months,” she said. “Actually, now it’s grown to six months. There’s no need for me to waste my time or anybody else’s. I know by then. If you make it over the six month hump, you have done something. I must really like you.”
Scott says that in order for a relationship to work, in addition to really liking the man in her life, she has to really like herself.
“You have to be who you are and you have to genuinely love who you love in order to have a lasting marriage,” she advises. “Getting married is one thing; staying married is something else.”
