25 Years Of ‘Poison’: 6 Dating Lessons We Learned From The 90s Classic was originally published on hellobeautiful.com

1. “Never Trust A Big Butt & A Smile”

“Never Trust A Big Butt & A Smile”

The biggest and most memorable piece of advice from this classic. Sure she’s beautiful and that booty don’t lie, but you can’t trust the physical appearance of a woman, hoping that she’s honest, caring and all the other good qualities you request in a mate. Look beyond the surface level when looking for love.

2. “It’s all so beautiful, relationships they seem from the start.”

“It’s all so beautiful, relationships they seem from the start.”

Aren’t all relationships the best in the beginning. That honeymoon phase is beautiful, but don’t get all caught up in that because the longevity of a relationship depends on a couple’s ability to stay together through the hard times aka past the honeymoon phase.

3. “Miss her, kiss her, love her, wrong move you’re dead”

“Miss her, kiss her, love her, wrong move you’re dead”

Every man should know that a woman needs a few things: miss us, kiss us and love us and live happily ever after in a blissful relationship. If men avoid these simple things, that’s when we snap! And don’t stop snapping until we get what we want and even then, we don’t need your pity love. We’re complicated.

4. “If I were you I’d take precaution, before I start to leave fly girl”

“If I were you I’d take precaution, before I start to leave fly girl”

The last thing you want to tell a woman is that you’re leaving her. Oh no you’re not! And if you are, watch your back.

5. “She’s so fly, she’ll drive you right out of your mind and steal your heart when you’re blind”

“She’s so fly, she’ll drive you right out of your mind and steal your heart when you’re blind”

Get distracted by a physical appearance and you can find yourself getting played. Keep your head in the game at all times and don’t allow looks to cloud your judgement when it comes to being in a relationship. And if you do, rely on those inside “looks.”

6. “She’s weighin’ but I know she’s a loser. How do you know? Me and the crew used to do her.”

“She’s weighin’ but I know she’s a loser. How do you know? Me and the crew used to do her.”

No one is slut-shaming here, but just know that playboys and women who are considered “loose,” “whores” and the like aren’t great relationship material. If they’ve been with your friends, you shouldn’t be with them. If they’ve been with a list of people, you shouldn’t be with them.
