Amanda Seales understands the need for unconditional love — just not when it comes to relationships.
The “Insecure” actress dropped some gems saying a lot of guys “have this love thing f—–” when it comes to their #RelationshipGoals.
Sorry to break it to you, fellas, but your girlfriend, isn’t your mother and that’s exactly Seales’ point.
“The reality is it’s not the same relationship and it shouldn’t be,” she says in the Thursday, Sept. 14 video. “Your girl didn’t birth you. There shouldn’t be an unconditional exchange. The exchange is fair when it’s conditional and you have control of those conditions.”

Instead, Seales said dudes should simply adhere to the golden rule and don’t take their ladies for granted.
“There should be mental, physical and emotional equity and that is what a conditional relationship is — but the conditions are great!” she continues. “But to expect someone to love you regardless of how you treat them or yourself or other people is not only ridiculous and self-centered, it’s actually irrational. I mean, that’s the unconditional love you expect from ya mama, but guess what? Ya mama ain’t suckin’ ya d—.”
From the looks of Seales’ mentions, many happily agree.
And I totally dig the Platinum Rule over the Golden Rule: “Treat others the way they want to be treated.”

Preach. Performative love is valuable and appreciated from a peer and/or partner.
