Glo-ri-fy: to make glorious by bestowing honor, praise, or admiration
After having our usual “relationship talk” with a friend of mine, I began to wonder how, why and when society began glorifying the side-chick. It seems like there has been this “side-chick revolution” in the last year or so where more and more women are becoming comfortable with – and sadly, proud of – being someone’s mistress. Playing second best, the jumpoff. The other option…you know the rest.
I’ve been the side-chick twice in my life (that I know of). Once, I didn’t even know I was the other woman until like four months later; and the other time, I was fully aware from the start. Looking back on those days, I can honestly say the reason I was so OK and sometimes very flippant about it was because my head wasn’t right. I was immature and in my mind, I thought that there was a possibility that I could have him to myself (I REALLY liked him). Looking back, I thought that was a way to win him over. Dumb right?
