Is there any standing room left inside your heart to forgive a fallen basic?
‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ star Mimi Faust tells Sister 2 Sister magazine that she has learned a valuable lesson or two from her dramatic made-for-television relationship former boyfriend Nikko Smith.
On if she thinks that Nikko pursued her with intentions to later exploit their relationship:
“I don’t think he went into it to do that. I don’t think that was his intention from the start. I’ve known Nikko for years. We dated back in the past. So, when I met back up with him in 2012, we started dating again. I just think things happen. I don’t think when I saw him again in L.A., he thought, ‘This is what I’m going to do.’ I don’t believe that at all.”
On if she’ll be open to her friends’ criticisms when she’s ready for her next romance:
“At the end of the day, people are going to do what they want to do regardless. I know very few people that upon meeting someone, will listen to a friend . . . People have to go and bump their head. People have to figure it out on their own. It depends on each individual person. If you’re like me, I’m stubborn. I’mma do what I want to do. I don’t care who feels what about it. I have to go through my own experience, figure it out and then keep it moving.”
On learning how to trust her instincts more:
“Listen to yourself moreso than your friends or your parents. Listen to yourself. Yourself will never, ever steer you wrong. There were times when myself told me, ‘Something’s not right about the situation’ and I ignored it.”
