LisaRaye McCoy has decided that she’s not going to sleep with another man until she meets the one that loves her mind as much as her body.
The “Single Ladies” star is not easy to impress, but she’ll be making men work a little harder to win her heart. The actress explained that she’s going to hold off on having sex until she’s got something real with a man. It’s a different approach than she’s tried in the past.
“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,” she told Cocoafab.com. “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 [physically] intimate, but because we’re mentally intimate. So I’m waiting for that person to come into my life.”
Ever since the release of The Player’s Club, men have been drooling over LisaRaye and she’s tired of the guys just see her as a sex symbol. One sure way to end up on LisaRaye’s list of men that will never stand a chance is to go on about her looks.
“When men meet me, they’re in awe of the image. I’m so turned off by that. Automatically I’m like, ‘Boy move.’ You know what I mean?” LisaRaye said before listing off all of the qualities she has that some men aren’t bothering to look because they’re so stunned by her beauty. “Now you’re not gonna give me a real chance because you’re like, ‘You do look good in person.’ It’s like, ‘OK. How many times can I say thank you? But you don’t know I can be a great friend? You don’t know I can cook. You don’t know that I’m a nurturer. You don’t know that I prefer to stay at home and watch a movie and pop my own popcorn.
Instead, LisaRaye is hoping to have some good clean fun with a guy before things get physical so that they can develop their vertical relationship before they’ve even thought about the horizontal one. “I want someone to know me, to learn me,” she explained. “I want to start dating the man that I’m gonna marry. I want to start having some fun with someone that I know I’m gonna be with. I don’t play any games. I’m too old for that. I’ve been there, I’ve been around the block.”
And whoever is up to the challenge of dating LisaRaye had better be mature because she’s not looking for anyone that hasn’t finished growing up. She concluded, “I am a woman and I need a man, not a boy. I don’t want to be a teacher. I’m not trying to be your mother, I want to be your significant other.”
