According to Future, the proposal was a willful battle against his male ego in a lot of ways. "I didn't want to go through life thinking I needed to sleep with a lot of women to get where I needed to go," he tells Matte Babel. "Sometimes your fears might be, 'Man if I don’t wake up with a different woman every day, I'm not the man I should be.' But it's not true: You can find someone you can be with, work on it, focus on a long term goal and that's being successful forever."
As for why Ciara is his life partner, Future says he sees a lot of himself in her. "We understand each other," he says of his fiancée. "She's like the female version of me: Competitive, ambitious and self-driven."
