Omarion Shared His Thoughts On Being Apart Of A Polygamous Relationship
The 38-year-old R&B singer recently appeared on ‘Club Shay Shay’ with host Shannon Sharpe, who questioned how Omarion finds his “ideal dating candidate.”
“Well, she finds me…”
Omarion explained that “it’s been a while” since he’s been in a “girlfriend-boyfriend type of relationship,” but he firmly believes that the ideal woman — or women will find him.
“And it might be she’s… I’m just saying; it might be she’s that finds me… yeah plurals…”
The Singer Explained Why His Lifestyle Might Be Better Suited For Multiple Women
Omarion then explained that his “lifestyle,” accompanied by the “pressure” of being in a monogamous relationship, may not be suitable for him or his partner.
“If I really thought about my lifestyle and being with me — like the pressure of being with me and it just being one woman, I don’t know if that exists… I might need her to be a businesswoman on Monday and we might get freaky on Tuesday…”
The singer explained that he “doesn’t come from a traditional standpoint.” However, he’s “definitely tried the traditional way” of relationships and “doesn’t know” if that’s the best option for him.
Omarion Shared Whether He Believes Men Are Meant To Be In Monogamous Relationships
The singer then shared his opinion of whether men are meant to be involved in monogamous relationships with women.
“I don’t know; I really don’t know. I think that you can find someone that makes you feel like you don’t want to be with anyone else — there might be a woman out there that can fill that void. But just strictly nature, no. I don’t think so.”
Omarion explained that it’s been “rare” for him to see another man remark about being in love with one woman, especially in the industry he works in.
However, the singer explained that he is “open” to love.
“I’m definitely open to love, and I really feel like love is acceptance, so if there is one woman, cool. If there’s two, cool. If there’s three, cool. But after three…”
Roommates, what do you think of Omarion’s standpoint? Do you think monogamy is becoming a construct of the past?
