Is He Into Me? 5 Reasons Why You Should Never Chase Boys

The thrill of a chase will get anyone’s adrenaline pumping, especially if you’re successful in your conquest. But for others, the chase may can be a turn off. Case in point: Taylor Swift.

Ever since the Country singing megastar stepped on the scene, she’s adorned premium arm candy, from Jake Gyllenhaal to recent ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. Her dating rap sheet leaves spectators to wonder why she swiftly dates one guy after another, but to dispel all the speculations of her being a chaser, the “Never Getting Back Together” singer told Elle magazine “I never chase boys!”

Is it a wise decision to chase in order to get what you want, or will a guy just ignore your efforts? Check out 5 reasons why it’s best to leave the chasing up to the men.

Vibe Vixen Frustrated Woman

1) It’s not healthy for your psyche.

Finding yourself consumed in this pursuit can burn you out, especially if the results are not in your favor. This is when the infamous saying “if it’s meant to be, it will be” comes into play. The one guy you’re eyeing isn’t the last specimen on Earth. Don’t rack your brain over plans or strategies to get him, just stay sane for the right one.

 

2) You’ll be labeled thirsty.

Soulja Boy said it best in his song “She Thirsty." Yes, you most likely will get the attention you seek, but he’ll look at you as “ easy.” Relax a little.

 

3) He’ll play games with you.

Once a guy notices that you’re overly interested, he might tease you by leading you on then dismissing you. He’ll come back whenever he chooses and you’ll probably let him in your life again. Honestly he’s taking advantage of your naivete.

4) If you still chase him when you already have him, he’ll leave.

This is also known as being clingy or a fear of giving him too much space. He gave into the chase and now that you reeled him in, relax the hook a little bit. There’s no need to invade his space worrying that another chaser will hook him. But if he does leave, could you blame him?

5) “They don’t like it!”

As Ms. Swift said to Elle magazine, men don’t like women to chase them (some women believe it should be vice versa, but that’s a different list). Aggressiveness can be interpreted as “this woman will go to any extreme,” instead of “she genuinely wants to be with me.” It’s best for him to see you for who you naturally are and not someone who’s desperate for companionship.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
