Tamar Braxton sparked a new dating debate.
The singer and reality TV star took to Twitter on Monday, October 11, broaching the subject of “making it halfway” with your partner. Typically, “making half” relates to both parties splitting the tab on a date, or even splitting the bills. According to Braxton, she does not approve of the concept and prefers all or nothing.
“Is there something wrong with me not wanting to go halfway with a guy,” she began in her tweet. “I don’t mind paying for BOTH of us sometimes, but I don’t go half the time!” It’s a total disconnect for me. Do you think half is sexy? »
She went on to say that it’s possible she thinks that way because of her upbringing, but still “it’s not that.” To get additional opinions on the matter, she invited her fans to give their views in the comments.
“I agree!! A crush on me too! I don’t mind paying for BOTH of us sometimes…but going halfway…no way!! It’s embarrassing for me. This will be our last date. Better to wait until you have the money to splurge before even gifting or just cooking a nice meal at home,” said one fan who agreed with Braxton.
Another person, a man, chimed in with a different opinion: “Strict rules on who pays what and when shouldn’t come until the relationship is serious. Before that, becoming Dutch eliminates monetary pretenses. We are just getting to know each other. So be it. And no eating free meals.
Someone else said it depends on the status of the relationship. “I mean, I don’t mind if that’s what we agree to get into a relationship together, but like we’re married, so damn it,” this person wrote.
Braxton married music producer Vincent Herbert in 2008. They share one child together, Logan Vincent Herbert, who is now 8 years old. Braxton filed for divorce from Hebert in 2017 and it was finalized in 2019. She then dated Nigerian businessman David Adefeso, but the two decided to call it quits last year after allegations of a fight in his car.
It’s unclear if Braxton is ready to date again, but lately the “Love and War” singer has been focusing on her healing journey and happiness.
