BET Staff Gives Mary Jane Dating Advice

BET staff and fans of the show gave us some advice for Mary Jane Paul.

Published August 10th

  1. Find GAWD

    Girl, you need to be at a counselor’s office — and please go by yourself. It seems to me that there are some self-loathing and sabotage issues you need to rectify. How can you play your own best friend? Above all else, after seeking counseling, seek Jesus himself. Go to church. You might find a man that’s better than Lee and Justin combined there. 

  2. Evaluate

    Mary Jane, you need to take a step back. Evaluate what you’re really doing and what your priorities are in life. Also, think about what you actually want in a man instead of being all over the place while trying to figure it out. Above all things, focus on yourself before anyone else because when you love and care for yourself, you’ll find a way to rearrange all aspects of your life. 

  3. BFF4L?

    To be honest, sis, you have to just live your life. Stop listening to other people, because, at the end of the day, it’s your life. You’re just going to have to do what your heart desires. Until you come to a realization of what you truly want, no one’s advice will work. Do whatever you want, but don’t put your friends down for a man. Justin isn’t reliable, so find love in a place where friendships aren’t torn apart. Remember, Kara is your ride or die. Justin is not. He’s only temporary. #JusticeforLee      

  4. love yourself

    MJ, you have to value yourself more. You may have self-esteem issues. Love yourself more than you love anyone else. At this point, you’re completely disregarding Kara and your friendship with her. How much are you really valuing yourself if you let Justin treat you wrong. At this time, he has the upper hand. Value your relationship with your friends and you’ll learn to love others. Do you want a man who isn’t going to value people closest to you? Justin doesn't. 

  5. reevaluate

    Stop making bad decisions when it comes to your love life. You have a track record of sleeping with married men and cheating on your significant other. Try to be as good of a friend to Kara as she is to you. You don’t have Kara’s back as much as Kara has yours.  Stop being so rude to people. Humble yourself and become less selfish. Realize who is in your corner and who is against you. When you can achieve this, you’ll keep yourself from making enemies.

    And that's all folks! Make sure you take this advice for your own life. Be a good friend, don't play the ones you live and try to pick a man with great values! Be sure to catch 'Being Mary Jane' all new on Tuesdays 10P/9C!
