Oprah Winfrey Has Only Dated 8 Men In Her Life by oritameta(m): 8:45am On Jan 15, 2011
Oprah Winfrey has only dated 8 men in her life and she's been with her current man since 1986. I would call it 9 men because she was pregnant at 15 and gave birth to a boy who died weeks later. Note that the count started from her High School sweetheart.

My question: Whats the percentage of men an Nigerian babe would have dated and allowed entry by the age of 25.

@Poster. . lol

Be careful. Some NL feminazi might come here and call you misogynist. . .lol. The thing is, women don't tell the truth when it comes to such issues. When a woman says she's been out with only three guys, multiply it by at least 2. It's what they feel "safe" they tell you and that includes Oprah herself. There might be several flings and quickies here and there no one knows about. Don't believe all you hear. . . especially from a woman's mouth.

@Harakiri:

I wont be surprised if I'm called that ooo, have seen people resort to insults when a post questions their pride.

As per the Oprah issue, well, she must have had some one night stands, or maybe not, but the list are about men she was involved with romantically. Including an affair she had with a married man.

All said, i was simply asking for guys opinion anyways. Just like you said, ladies, especially ones with long lists, would avoid the question like a plaque.

When the numbers decrease and the sunshine increase, men are more whorish than women.

Re: Oprah Winfrey Has Only Dated 8 Men In Her Life by iice(f): 6:22pm On Jan 15, 2011
Wasn't she Molested by a family member? And that counts like dating someone? smh
Re: Oprah Winfrey Has Only Dated 8 Men In Her Life by MrsChima(f): 6:37pm On Jan 15, 2011
You know what Iice I was going to say that and I didn't want to turn this thread into a crying session because molest is real to some people on this thread still.

Yes, she was Molested by a cousin and she forgave him 25 years later. That is a long time to hold such anger for a past deed. I guess people do not understand how molest has an affect on women specially and SOME women often use sex as a way to heal when all they need is a good shoulder to cry on and someone to be there for them emotionally and physically without sex.

iice:

Wasn't she violated by a family member? And that counts like dating someone? smh

@iice: Even if i were under the influence of cocaine, I'd never include the incidence of her molestation. To force a grown up woman against her will even if you were married to her, to me, is a crime worth a prison sentence, nonetheless abusing a child sexually. Also, i do not think it was as a result of the abuse that she got pregnant.

@Mrs.Chima
The thread was meant in no way to insult 9ja ladies. I quoted a "source" and stated in my reply to Harakiki that it was just the number of men she had so far been romantically linked to.

@iv4real: The type of ladies i hang out with gives me an understanding that dating someone does not start only when you are already sleeping with the person or guarantees a chance of doing so. Which I'm certain you are already aware of.

Folks are getting it all wrong because of our perception of dating in 9ja. Theirs a huge difference between hooking-up and dating. Hooking up has got nothing to do with emotions, but dating does. If Oprah had been hooking up with the married man, she would not have got on her kneels to beg him to leave his wife for her. She wanted, at that time, to share her future with him.

Now, why would the simple question: How many men would have average 9ja babe would have dated and allowed entry by the age of 25 trigger such fury

was expecting something like; Maybe 5 but 2 were allowed entry. or maybe 15 & 15 were allowed entry. simple like rice & plantain

I know there are lots of 'Woman' right activist on NL, and its not like any demeaning post would make me flinch, but I read something online and was only curious to know.
Re: Oprah Winfrey Has Only Dated 8 Men In Her Life by iice(f): 4:54am On Jan 16, 2011
Lol. Seems we live in different worlds. Yes it's a man's world but that's not what i'm referring to.
Nigerian men will always look at women who have had more than 3 intimate partners as a hoe. But if the woman should defend herself, then she's a nazi. Not to mention the problem of if you're not married by a certain age then there's something wrong with you. Women scrambling to hang on to men who will not stay with them if they don't put out and thus the putting out ends in the woman being a hoe. It's like a movie but people don't actually get the plot.


Anyway. . .na una sabi.
Re: Oprah Winfrey Has Only Dated 8 Men In Her Life by oritameta(m): 8:48am On Jan 16, 2011
You are right on point. Men often desire an experienced virgin for a wife and that's pathetic, but this is not a same case scenario. 3 intimate partners for a girl that's 25, she's as good as a virgin. Personally, i think the probability of getting a virgin to marry is the same as playing lottery, 1 to 1,000,000 (i think) and I don't play lotto. I live in the real world.

As per the "don't put out" issue, you don't have to blame us o. For a girl's that has been around, with lets say 10 guys by age 25, it will be next to impossible to convince her new man that it's during his "tenure in office" that she wants to enact the new law of celibacy. next thing on an average 9ja guy's mind is: eh eh. Na me be mugu abi shocked moreover, in our 21st century, most men believe once the hymen is gone, the place requires "oiling" often.

That's just the way it is. Reality sucks

@ mohumyta, guilty! *wink*

@oritameta, ur last statement showz U lack experience in dat aspect, I av gone out wit plenty galz n also entered dere placez *i'm sowee* but more dan d plenty were virginz n have not had more dan a boyfriend in dere entire life 4rm dere behavior n naivety U kw n so I let dem b coz ma intention were naughty nd we become close friend nd till date i won't a gal by apperance or peerz dey hang out wit, I av friendz (guyz) who had. Sex 1st in 500level n some who left university as virgin boiz,

So moral, we still av decent n not promisciouz youthz around us.
Re: Oprah Winfrey Has Only Dated 8 Men In Her Life by oritameta(m): 11:10am On Jan 16, 2011
@misanho: I'm not certain what aspect you mean but I think if its about decency, I made my stance clear with iv4real.

@iv4real: The type of ladies i hang out with gives me an understanding that dating someone does not start only when you are already sleeping with the person or guarantees a chance of doing so. Which I'm certain you are already aware of.

Odd as it may, there are loads and lots of decent people around us and many a girl would rather show you the highway than oppose to handling their virtue to you all in the name of "showing love" or "trying not to lose him".

I stated in my last post that a girl @ 25 with 3 intimate partners is as good as a virgin, while you stated that you've met some with only 1 yet say I'm inexperienced about it. How ironic my friend.

Almost every 1 who's a "stricker" & "top scorer" would have met girls that had given up their hymen to the gullibility of teenage love, some like US would walk away so as not to wreck more havoc, some don't just *** care. Then again, that's just the way it is; Reality sucks!

Can any girl on Nairaland admit that they did such?.
@topic... I don't think our girls in Nigeria will want to tell the amount of guys she dated, the highest they will say is "that's in the past".... When you think of it, they are right somehow.
