Okay so we don't wait for you guys maybe because we grew up together and many of you seem like brothers. We've seen you in all your elements, before you knew all about swag and class, with catarrh all over your face. Yea yea, you've seen us with our dresses stained, so what? So anyways, the friendzone is real :p
Okay, so even if you happen to escape from the strong walls of friendzone. After university, the world doesn't let us finish NYSC before they start with their silly interrogatory pleasantaries. "So how is your boyfriend?" "Awon uncle nko?" "Your bobo is taking care of you oh" "Oh girl, you have a wife glow. Something happening soon?" "Did you see Yemi's wedding photos?" Do I need to go on? You can't post a photo online in peace without a stupid "Aunty go and marry" comment. You don't believe? Go check Linda Ikeji and Genevieve Nnaji's pages. After masters and age 26? The pressure is real. An average guy your age isn't ready at 26. Some may not be ready until their mid or late thirties. And if you decide to wait for your high school or college sweetheart, you get harrassed by photos of weddings, babies, dps saying "my husband is the best." Thanks to the society, a lot of ladies can not wait. Love or no love, it's #FastestRouteToTheAltar
Then we see Aunty Tunrayo and Sis Grace who were dumped by their high school and college sweethearts at ages 29 and 33 because their exes had met fresh blooded 21 and 22year olds who tickle their fancy. 8 years on, they are still the subject of every family prayer meeting. No girl wants to be in their shoes. They can't afford to wait only to be dumped. So they leave the guy they love so much for the fastest
way to the altar.
Oh, most of these guys are jerks with all the youthful exuberance in their bloodstreams. Girls mature faster. At 26, a Friday evening indoors, cooking, eating, dancing, cuddled up infront of the tv, is more fun than bars and clubs. An older guy, who is more likely to be done with that, knows how to treat a woman from his experiences and ready to settle down. He doesn't have time for petty arguments/fights.
Also, sometimes it's easier to submit to the authority of a older guy than a younger one. I should not fail to mention that some ladies are swayed by the freebies they get from working class men.
If you want that girl, you need to grow up fast, get your priorities right and treat her well. Or stop nagging :p Thank you for reading. :* :* :* Anuoluwapo
P.S. When I say older guy, I don't mean aristos, sugar daddies. I'm also not canvassing for older guys. This post talks on some of the reasons babes go for older guys. Maybe we can debate which is better soon.
