Omarion has shed some light on his interpersonal relationships, and admitted there’s a “pressure” when it comes to dating him, and that one woman might not be able to handle it.
Talking to Shannon Sharpe on his Club Shay Shay podcast, Omarion discussed his life, career, dating, among other things. As part of the conversation, the singer was asked how he finds his perfect woman, to which he replied that she usually “finds him.”
Besides that, Omarion noted that he doesn’t have a “traditional” perspective on dating and relationships, so one woman might not be enough for him. “If I really thought about my lifestyle and being with me, like the pressure of being with me, and it just being one woman, I don’t know if that exists,” he said.
He added: “I might need her to be a businesswoman on Monday, and then we might get freaky on Tuesday.”
According to the singer, he’s tried monogamous relationships, but it did not work for him.
However, he did point out that it is possible to “find someone that makes you feel like you don’t wanna be with anyone else,” but that it’s “rare,” especially in his industry. Even so, the singer said he remained “open to love.”
In other related news, Omarion was recently approached by the AllBlk network to develop a television series based on his life, called Involved.
