#LetsDiscuss “I met a young qualified man and he expressed his dismay and disappointment at his inability to get married up till now even though he has been ready for the past 2 years.
The challenge is that the women he would love to walk down the aisle with don’t want to touch him with a 10-footpole because he doesn’t have a car, takes a bus to work, jumps on okada(bike) often to get to work, makes less than 70,000 naira (300 dollars) a month” It’s such an irony and also very sad that there are a lot of young hardworking, bright, qualified men out there who are ready to get married or settle down but are constantly overlooked and ignored because they don’t have some luxury or a certain type of lifestyle. Education and bright ideas were golden in the time of our parents, but now as a result of western exposure, social media, cable TV etc money, cars, clothes, current job title play a major role in finding a husband or boyfriend. Some ladies would rather date a man who has money and cheats on them than a man who is faithful but struggling.
I recently heard of a lady who postponed her wedding because she didn’t want to get married in Ikeja just because her friends don’t like crossing 3rd mainland bridge & thought her initial wedding venue was “random”. What happened to bright ideas? Ambition? Love? Sensitivity? A lot of ladies today are single because if “AKIN” should approach them with his N70,000 salary and his bright ideas they would say God forbid bad thing; my parents didn’t send me to school to settle for such a man. Substance lasts over material has history as always shown. Have reasonable standards and take chances.
