Jill Scott has replaced her vow of celibacy for a five date rule. The songstress suffered two tough break ups after her divorce from Lyzel Williams and calling off her engagement with drummer Jett Hamilton Roberts. Jett is also the father to Jill’s young son, Jett, jr.
Jill revealed her most recent break-up prompted her to take a vow of celibacy but that vow is now out the window! The “So In Love” singer tells Us Magazine,
Now the minimum is until the fifth date. The whole celibacy thing, you could throw that out the window. That’s over. But I don’t have physical intimacy until at least the fifth date. So I can get to know who I’m dealing with and they can get to know me. And with my schedule, five dates can take three or four months! It just gives me a chance to get to know the person. So we talk on the phone pretty much every day or maybe we Skype or have a date and we have fun. I’m getting to know someone so I know if they’re crazy or not. I just don’t want to waste my time. I’m just trying to look at the mistakes that I made. I got so caught up in the flesh and I’m not even allowing someone to get to know the best parts of me. I’m a single girl in the world, but if I don’t have some standards then I can be making the same mistakes that I made in the past. I do want love. Genuine love. And sometimes sex can get in the way.
