Everytime a sentence starts like this, I find myself leaning forward with all the eagerness I can muster, dying to hear the second half of what love feels like. Even though I have met many people who are in love, I have never really heard any of them describe it with an all-encompassing description that beats everything else. So yes, I am always eager to … Continue reading “You’ve Never Been In Love If…”
When we think of the word ‘love’, we often think of selfless acts of giving and an unconditional desire to satisfy the needs of others, sometimes at our own detriment. I have very often heard of people declare and swear by the love that gives unconditionally, the love that cares without any expectation, the love that makes hearts soar even though they are not receiving. … Continue reading Love Is Not About Giving
This question tugged at the strings of my heart for weeks after I returned home from an eye-opening conference. I was privileged to be selected to attend a conference designed to empower young women who are just embarking on the inception of their careers. I may have been partly prepared for the awesome experience but I was in no way prepared for some of the … Continue reading How Much Should You Give Up For Love?
Well, at least we don’t need unsolicited advice. There is a recent hike in articles aimed at single women, pointing out what they are doing wrong, why they are still single and how it will be difficult for them to find suitable partners if they keep walking down the same path. Oh dear! Sometimes, these articles make me roll my eyes while other times, I … Continue reading Single Women Don’t Need Advice
The incessant race to get married is not helping society in any way. Single ladies in their mid and late twenties are not spared third degree style questioning by family members with regards to their intention to settle down. “When are you getting married?”, “I hope you are not chasing men away with your attitude?”, “Lower your standards, no man can meet all these requirements”…the … Continue reading Are You Dating Down Just to Settle Down?
Those were the words that haunted me as I went to bed a couple of nights ago. After my usual routine of watching tv for at least a couple of hours a day, I struck up a spontaneous conversation with one of my acquaintances on BBM and the conversation steered in the direction of relationships. She asked why I wasn’t seeing anyone and I simply … Continue reading “Don’t Be Left Behind!!!”
Disclaimer: No offence to Steve Harvey’s popular book, which I did not read and no offence to the movie which I watched and enjoyed. These days, it is a growing trend that women want to think like men. We believe we are failing at relationships because we are not thinking like men. We want to put ourselves in the position of men, we want to … Continue reading Think Like a Man…. ERM… No Thanks
Single women lie to themselves- that is not news. Married women lie to single women- Oh! Are you surprised?! Sometimes, people feed us with information to sway our desires and decisions to suit the lifestyles they already live…. I will address this in a later post. Today, I was working on my book when this topic came to mind- lies we single women tell ourselves … Continue reading Lies Single Women Tell Themselves
This is the song many men that claim they’d like to be married are singing… “I just can’t find a wife, so many ladies are deceitful. Too many ladies ‘have been around’ and those that seem good enough to marry are so unapproachable or uninterested.” Ok guys… I hear you. It is easy to find a girlfriend, date her for five years or more, wake … Continue reading I Just Can’t Find a Wife!
“Let your heart-break. I promise it won’t kill you” Those were the words I heard when an ad for a TV show titled ‘Iyanla fix my life’ was playing on TV. It sounded like a nice saying but I feel it didn’t apply to me. About 18 months ago, I met the man of my dreams (do I hear a congratulatory applause and excitement?) Thank … Continue reading Let Your Heart BLEED….
