Late 80's, Early 90's RnB Song - Help

Can anyone identify these song lyrics? The actual song song may differ slightly.

The song itself is a slow jam, RnB or New Jack Swing.

"if you can find a love the one that's truly right for you, you should keep it, boy you should keep it"

Any assistance is appreciated.

Watch Out by Patrice Rushen? Not a match lyrically but similar.
I don't want to get eaten alive
'cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever want to be
Eaten alive

Not even close! The song has the tempo of Babyface's "Whip Appeal". The singer is Male, and even sounds like him, but it's not Babyface.

Thanks for help!

In the 90s,there were two male singers that sound like Babyface: the lead singer from 112,and Tony Rich (the guy who sings "Nobody Knows")...perhaps it's a song from one of them?

when you find a tender roni that is right for you...make it official...give her your love

"Roni" by Bobby Brown,written and produced by Babyface? hmmm

Nice try! These songs are very close, even the singers sound like, but it's not it.

Lyrics don't match at all. Are you sure about the song lyrics you posted?
