Goapele Gives Relationship Advice: 'The Truth Always Comes Out'Wed, Nov 23, 2011
âWhen youâre getting to know someone that you can see yourself taking it further with, you should let [him or her] know who you are,â Goapele told Juicy magazine for their December/January issue now on newsstands. âBe honest. Period. The truth always comes out at some point. Itâs just better for people to know what theyâre getting into firsthand.â
This sense of honesty doesnât mean bringing unwanted baggage into a new relationship Goapele says. She insists people should use their own good judgment when being open to the person theyâre courting.
âBut at the same time, donât weigh them down with your past issues. Reflect on getting to know each other versus [unpacking] baggage,â she says. âIâm not someone who can be very secretive. Itâs obvious if Iâm holding something back. Iâm always expressing my thoughts and emotions. I definitely value the same from my man and expect it in return. I donât really think thereâs such a thing as revealing too much too soon.â
She continues: âWhatever works in one relationship doesnât mean it will work in another one. In a relationship, you and your partner should make your own rules. Itâs important for you all to be accountable to each other and [not burdened with] what other people think.â
