On the morning before the night that would change Chad’s life, he posted what seemed to be one of his normal let-me-share-with-you-some-pearls-of-wisdom-from-my-deep-vast-ocean-of-knowledge messages. I actually enjoyed his tweets, sometimes TMI, but always enjoyable. In the above tweet, I think many would have assumed that he was talking about life in general, however, I immediately thought “He is talking about his relationship with Evelyn.” Why? He certainly was not in the position to up and leave the Dolphins and play somewhere else. What else in his life would be so important that when things got rough, he could chose other “options”?
I am sure by now everyone know that he was arrested for domestic violence, cut by the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, then had the couple’s reality show, Ev and Ocho, was pulled from VH1.
Evelyn has repeated, at least on a couple occasions, the “if a man wants to cheat he will, so I am not going to worry about it” meme, WHICH I ABSOLUTELY DETEST. The ONLY thing men here when women say that is “She says it is OK if I cheat!” They also imagine that the man will be respectful, careful, and discrete which they usually aren’t. And the women think that they have the upper hand because they are not being emotional, until it happens and they are CRUSHED.
Chad was probably speaking to the gift/curse that most men would kill to have, the ability to sleep with practically anyone they want. Initially, a man can revel in the unlimited supply of the women, many whom have no requirements or standards concerning how a woman should be treated. However, eventually, problems will crop up. At best, a man won’t be able to fully commit because at any hint of trouble, he is off to spend time with an “option”. At worst, he will become desensitized to sex and unable to feel or express feelings of love.
From his appearance on reality shows and other public situations, OchoCinco has made it clear that he would find it hard to be faithful. This time, his inability to “become a chef”, lead to an argument about condoms. Which lead to the implosion of his career and brand…at least for the foreseeable future.
