Now that Cam Newton has become Cam Newton, he’s having a hard time finding a woman who is interested in Cam Newton and not Cam Newton.
“It’s a cliché for people to say you have to be on alert,” Newton tells Jarrett Bell of USA Today. “But sometimes, that is the case. You may see a particular female who’s attractive, but you already sense it.
“I pray for discretion every single night, that I can see through people, see what their greater good is. Sometimes that individual ‘wows’ you by the eye, but when it come to heart to heart, that person’s not there for you. That’s not just females. That may be friends, people who come into your life just to use you for who you are.”
He’s right. The woman who marries Cam Newton will have instant fame and fortune. She’d become the envy of all of her friends and/or colleagues and/or high-school classmates and/or sorority sisters, and she’d be a candidate to star in The Real Housewives of Charlotte.
And, eventually, she’d potentially be in line for up to half of Cam’s cash.
“Genuine people, at this stage of my life, are very scarce,” Newton said. “That’s unfortunate. Most of the time, I don’t really give people a chance. I have a wall up. I’m always protecting who I am. Thinking about my brand. I make it hard on people. Sometimes, it’s a good thing. Sometimes, it’s a bad thing.”
It’s a bad thing that he’s that concerned about his brand. When it comes to finding the right woman, he should be more concerned about finding someone who unconditionally loves Cam Newton, not Cam Newton.
But, hey, that goes with the territory. And few average bachelors will shed tears for a young multi-millionaire whose biggest dilemma is trying to find the needle in the haystack of women who are chasing him.
