Tiffney Cambridge said her fiancé, rapper Game, was super-pressed on their first date, but she liked it.
When you look at Game, you may not think he’d wind up with a schoolteacher, or that he’d work hard to get her. You would be wrong on both accounts.
So how did the Los Angeles rapper hook up with Tiffney? As we hear it, Game was chasing after her for a while before she agreed to go out with him. The teacher told S2S that they actually met at the barbershop, which his old friend owns, where they both got their hair done.
She was a client of his sister’s, so their paths would occasionally cross and he would never miss an opportunity to holler. "He would just always flirt and ask me, ‘When you gonna let me take you out?’" Tiffney recalled. "I wasn’t paying Jayceon any mind at that time, at all."
But it was the passing of her mother that got her to eventually consider taking Game up on his numerous offers. "I grieved for a while, but eventually I said, ‘Okay, let me pull it together,’” Tiffney shared, adding that a few nudges from her girls also helped Game’s case. "My girlfriends were saying, ‘You ought to go on out with that little boy.’”
She continued, "I told him to come pick me up at 8. Girl, he came at 7 and waited for an hour for me to come downstairs. I thought that was so cute."
It was even cuter to Tiffney that Game was on his very best behavior once she was ready to go. He took her out to eat and, needless to say, things clicked for the couple.
"We just kind of hit it off. I thought he was really sweet," said Tiffney, who recalled that he didn’t order any liquor on their date as he opted to sip cranberry juice the whole night. She wasn’t entirely convinced by the good boy act, but he surprised her. "I was thinking to myself, ‘I know this guy probably drinks and smokes and acts a fool.’ But when we went to dinner he was very well-mannered, very well-spoken."
And the gentlemanly behavior didn’t stop there. Game made sure that he opened her door, too. "He was really nice to me. And I thought it was cute that after the date was over, about 9:30, and he wasn’t ready to take me home," Tiffney remembered. "So, he looked at me and he said, ‘Miss Cambridge,’ can I take you to the movies?” Just like a little kid. It was so cute."
