Relationships aren’t the easiest social constructs to navigate. They’re made especially difficult when insecurities are involved, but this man doesn’t worry about insecurity because when it comes to other men approaching his girlfriend, he doesn’t get jealous.

In a video posted by his girlfriend on Twitter, the man explained that he doesn’t worry about losing her to other men because he knows they can’t support her like he does.

“I don’t get jealous because I know that if another man is trying to holla at you, he’s just practising. I know that I not only uplift you financially, but mentally as well. I uplift you spiritually, I’ve made you a business owner, I make your dreams come true – I’m your own personal genie,” the man says while his girlfriend blushes.

“I take the trash out, I cook, I clean, I make sure the children are good and I make sure you’re good; mentally, spiritually and physically. I have no reason to be jealous, men who get jealous are men who know they’re not handling their business like they should. So, even though I see other dudes checking for you, I don’t get jealous. They don’t want to handle you; they want to play with you. I came to make you a queen, I came to put you on a throne, I came to uplift you. I came to listen to your goals, I came to manifest your dreams,” he tells her.

“I love you like I love myself, so me being insecure . . . that’s crazy. Men that handle their business don’t get jealous, boys get jealous. Boys think everything is about money, sex and clothes. I understand that it’s about building a strong foundation with a woman that’s trying to grow and that’s trying to elevate her children,” he told his blushing partner.

Even though most tweeps found this man’s words sweet, some were not impressed with his choice of words – saying he sounds possessive and controlling.

“Am I the only one that gets narcissist vibes from this video? I’ve been here, hearing all the good, being reminded of allllll that is done for me etc. Ppl like this are usually the most manipulative lovers, anywho I’ll move along”

“This man had BARS he said “they don’t wanna handle you they wanna play with you” where are you goin after that? Lmaoo”

“Okay for real, at first I was like awe but his words sounded REAL possessive. "I made you into a business owner, I make your dreams come true" made me toot my nose up. That's not something I personally wanna hear.”

“Everything sounded good except When he said ‘I’ve made you a business owner , I made all your dreams come true’....”

“This sounded nice until I read the comments.”
