Though she met her hubby, Jay Tucker, at a party, she said her prose offers some tips on how to effectively date on the Internet. However no matter your means of making yourself available to the potential Mr. Right, Niecy said knowing your priorities is key.
That advice may have helped her BFF, Sherri Shepherd find love with Lamar Sally. Niecy introduced the two, and she gives a sneak peek of that advice that may have helped the couple make it down the aisle.
Get more on Niecy’s It’s Hard to Fight Naked in the exclusive excerpt below and in the June 2013 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
Jamie: You internet dated?
Niecy: I sure did, girl, with my real face. Let me tell you what. I was on Match.com, Black People Meet. I was on Christian Singles and BlackWomenWithWeavesAndKids.org or something like that—
Niecy: I just share my experiences… People always say, “How did you meet your husband? How did you get this kind of relationship? God, you guys seem so good together and perfectly matched.” I’m like, “Okay, let me tell you how to get the man who’s perfectly matched for you,” you know, and it starts with—and this is a conversation I had with Sherri, let me tell you what, because Sherri was still at a place when she met Lamar where she wanted to date for her preferences as opposed to her priorities.
Jamie: Mm-hmmm, mm-hmmm.
Niecy: And I said—you know, she was like, “He’s too big” or whatever. And I was like, “So what’s your priority? Who’s gonna take [your son] to the doctor when he’s sick? Who’s gonna make sure you eat right with your diabetes? Who’s gonna rub your feet and tolerate the fact that you’ve got 100 weaves laying around when you get off “The View”? You know what I mean?
Niecy: That’s what you want! So, you know, in those conversations—I just started to have them with so many women. I was like, “You know what? Let me just put this all in a book, so I could even get this information to maybe even women I don’t know.”
