“Women were created to please men” This is the general thought many men walk around with even if they refuse to say it out loud (no thanks to female emancipation). This is the thought many women believe hence the urge they have to ensure their relationships work out at all cost. This is the thought society has thrived on – that women are lesser beings … Continue reading Women were Created for the Pleasure of Men
This is one advice I think every single girl has heard at some point in her life. When people ask you why you’re single (by the way I find it surprising people haven’t figured out this question is annoying), they’re sometimes fishing to hear what barriers you’ve built around yourself, preventing you from finding eternal happiness. I always say “oh wow… I don’t know. Perhaps … Continue reading “Lower Your Standards”
My dad has a radio; a radio that has defied the rules of nature and managed to stay in one piece till this very moment. As far as I can remember my childhood, this radio has been catered for and loved by my dad. I often wondered as a teenager if my dad understood how embarrassing it was for his teenage children that he still … Continue reading My Dad and his Old, Trusted Radio
Reading time: 5 minutes I am probably the biggest fan of the Amazing Race; it’s one show I NEVER miss. It doesn’t matter which continent I may find myself, trust me to either stream the episode online or hunt down the channel that shows it. Last night, I was seated on the couch, waiting for the final episode of the Amazing Race Australia. My heart … Continue reading Do You Have a Partner for Life?
As published on covenantrelationships.org Before you walk down the aisle, it is a key factor that you are sure your future spouse is the one. While many people may rely on pure intuition and emotions, there are people who rely on directions from God. No one wants to marry the wrong person, that’s for sure, but how do you know for sure that the person … Continue reading Have You Heard From God Regarding Your Future Spouse?
That’s the advice many of our female friends are quick to give us. “He didn’t answer your calls? Girl kick him to the curb!” “He hasn’t called you back after half an hour, he’s cheating, kick his ass to the curb!” “He smiled at his neighbor when she walked past him? He’s a pig! Kick his damn ass to the curb!” *sigh* *deep breath* poor … Continue reading Kick him To The Curb!
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?
You’re probably rubbing your eyes or cleaning your glasses to make sure you read that title right. This is not a dream, I am encouraging you to throw a tantrum when you have to! The word ‘maturity’ is overused, over-flogged and misunderstood in so many ways, especially in relationships. When someone comes along, sweeps you off your feet, takes you on a magic carpet ride … Continue reading Before You Let Go, Throw a Tantrum!
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
I’m not asking you to declare intentions of marriage after one week of knowing each other, nor am I asking that you completely eradicate the foundation of friendship in your relationship. I am simply asking that you should be aware of where you stand in a relationship to avoid being caught in a ‘situation-ship’. It is very common these days that everyone wants to ‘go … Continue reading Know Where You Stand! Define Your Relationship!
