And Happy Friday to you my beautiful people! Yes, today is Friday. But did you think I would just replace the blog with the short story series and forget the confessions? The same confessions of a Wawa New-Yorker that brought us to this point?? I THINK NOT!!!
On that note, moving forward, by the grace of God, I plan to keep Tuesdays as the short story series day and Friday as the Confessions/gist/inspiration/question of the day/whatever-that-is-doing-me day! Yay! Lol! On that note, LADIES…. WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!
Question – have you wondered if there is something you may be doing that drives men (potential life-mates) away from you?
Okay so, one of my guy friends hit me up IRATE!
Some background: a girl friend of mine moved back to Naija recently and my guy friend lives there. So I thought it’d be great to hook them up. They are both amazing people, so why not?
They went on a date.
While my girl friend (lets call her Ada Ada), thought it went great and can’t wait to see this guy again, the guy, thinks I hate him and can’t figure out what he did to deserve such “arrant nonsense” ??
Below (with his permission) is what he wrote:
Him: OBIAGELI, THAT YOUR STUPID FRIEND ORDERED EVERYTHING ON THE MENU! Don’t get me wrong, when she did, I assumed she hadn’t eaten and was hungry. So I didn’t care. But when the food came SHE ATE 2 SPOONS OF EVERYTHING and said she was full. SHE IS SO WASTEFUL!
Me: I’m sorry, did she offer to pay at least?
Him: Its not about the money!!! It’s like telling a woman to cook for me on the first date and telling her I want Oha soup and pounded yam, Jollof rice with goat-meat, Pepper soup and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Me: OMG LWKMD! Okay I get it
Him: It’s the principle. SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE ORDERED WHAT SHE COULD NOT FINISH! The same way, women don’t want a man who would make them cook all the time, is the same way, men don’t want to see their hard earned money go down the drain on unfinished food.
Me: I get it. No too vex. I can talk to her… Maybe you can give her another chance…??
Him: OBIAGELI I DON’T WANT!
I’ll like to reiterate that Ada Ada is a great person! I am sure she had no intention of being wasteful or coming off any type of wrong way. Who knows how many men she may have scared off in the past with this behavior?
Ladies, this 2017, let us be mindful of our actions and be considerate of others.
Let me know your thoughts! My guys, please feel free to share any other date behaviors that have chased you away!
Until next time, thank you so much for reading!!
