Atlanta Falcons DE Ray Edwards On Dating Strippers And Spotting Groupies

The dating habits of athletes is always a fascinating topic. There are tons of theories about who they’re attracted to, why they choose particular types and of course, is it better to lock down the one that was with you “before” or go for the upgrade.

Falcons DE Ray Edwards gave an interview to Baller Alert about dating strippers and how he spots groupies and gold diggers. Take a peek.

You recently broke up with your girlfriend who was a stripper, do you find in your profession that you attract women of certain occupations more than others?

No, not at all. I feel like I attract women of all occupations. She was just someone who caught my eye and I wanted to see how a relationship would go. It was going well there, for a minute, but then you know, it went south.

On if he would date a stripper again:

I don’t know. It’s all about whoever God sends me. That’s my outlook on those types of things.

On How he differentiates between regular women and groupies:

When your team mates say “Oh, I know ol’ girl” or more than a couple of guys know who she is then you know that okay, she’s a groupie.

On if he would choose to pass on a woman who has been labeled a groupie:

It depends …if they just know her then that’s okay but if she smashed the homies like Ray J says, it can’t really go any further then I just being friends and hanging out.

How many homies is too many homies?

There you have it ladies. If you know a few teammates, you’re suspect. If you’ve been intimate with one, you can still get a pass. From that point, you’re on your own.

Well, unless you’re reality star. That’s a whole different scale! Every athlete loves a referral.
