Entanglement, are you smiling reading this? This takes us back to the red table talk hosted by Jada Pinkett. Jada was explaining to her husband, Will, what happened between her and RnB artist August Alsina. She went ahead and called their relationship an entanglement. I’m sure none of us had any idea what an entanglement was but the memes circling around on social media got you covered. Which leaves us with this question What is an entanglement type of relationship really?

Wikipedia says, If you’re feeling drained with your partner, you’re likely caught up in an entanglement. In a harmonious relationship where both people take responsibility for any issues that arise, and they come up with creative solutions that further add to the positive feelings they share. August also refers to it as a tangle in the sheets, funny right? I see y’all faces, guilty. Let’s try and focus on Augusts defination, he knows better.

You see her every day at school, too afraid to talk to her let alone ask for her number. She’s gorgeous yes but you still stare, imagining the million ways in which you can twist and turn her if only you got the chance. You know too well she has a hunk for herself but you let go of amazing relationships in hopes of nailing her one day, Entanglement!

Sister, he buys you everything you want in life, you just have to name it. Takes you for vacations and cruises just to name a few. You are just there knowing he’s the one, jackpot hit. Do you know any of his family members? Do you know any of his friends? Do you know where he lives? Does he talk if any future plans with you? Entanglement!

My point is, we all are tangling out here. It mustn’t be just about sex or anything for you to term it as an entanglement, no, it’s all about the type of the relationships we have. I go for DTR (Defining The Relationship) open up, tell him or her all about you and ensure that you know what you about to get into. Let’s stop the tangles and focus on love.
