|Romance / Re: Some Very Silly Things Guys Should Stop Doing by abbey621(m): 1:26pm On Sep 02|
Apart from point #1 every other point is on point . Seriously, I've said it b4 Guys don't know the advantages they've got in this world, especially in 9ja. Most 9ja girls are desperados, they'll willingly give it up to a clean, mature, capable young man. All a guy needs are the following:
1: Cash, Moolah, Money $$$$$
2: Clean appearance, well groomed, fresh breath, clean smooth clothes & shoes.
3: Confidence! Confidence!! Confidence!!!
I've never seen a guy with all three of these things struggle to get a girl, it's practically impossible unless they are following him from his village
Guys that go on social media to form gentlemen by thanking girls for accepting friend request or liking every pix whether fine or ugly are usually lacking one or more of the items above.
|Romance / Re: Marriage Proposal: Does The Quality Of The Engagement Ring Matter? by abbey621(m): 1:19pm On Sep 01|
Marriage today has become a thing of mockery. All emphasis on material things, love has definitely taken the backseat. It's good to get a good engagement ring, between $300 to $1500 at most but each man should buy things according to his financial situation. Just because I want to wed a girl doesn't mean I should put myself in heartbreaking debt. Girls nowadays are so fascinated by fairy tales, they turned themselves into Disney characters. Always looking for the perfect man with deep pockets, romantic and faithful, even 80% of those qualities ain't enough for them. My advice to Guys out there, if your girl is not content with what you offer her, then she probably ain't the right one for you. Save yourself the stress and abandon ship!

Guidette: I can deal with DV but not infidelity. That's the worst thing that can happen to me in a relationship.
This is probably the funniest post I've seen today. I can see it now, "Honey you can slap and kick me as much as you want but never sleep with another woman o".....
|Family / Re: Would You Stand By Your Spouse, No Matter What? by abbey621(m): 2:22pm On Aug 29|
I can definitely see the point you are trying to make but what happens if the man is not the cheating type, always devoted, never for once gave her a reason to doubt but she cheated anyways. Do you think such a man can ever look at her the same way ever again? Yes a broken home is not good but if you are not in the right mental state due to an unfaithful spouse then you are bound to gradually push yourself to insanity and when that happens no pastor, alfa, Bible or Quran can reverse the emotional trauma your loved ones would be put thru. I've seen real live cheaters and statistically 90% of the time they end up cheating again, they are not remorseful because they cheated, they are remorseful because they got caught!
|Family / Re: Would You Stand By Your Spouse, No Matter What? by abbey621(m): 1:35pm On Aug 29|
Love is one of the most overrated word in the modern society, it's nothing but an illusion. Relationships are all about ups and downs and when you decide to get married it takes more than love to make it work. In a marriage some things are just not forgivable immediately such as infidelity or betrayal, things like these requires counseling and lots of remorse. Let's make one thing clear, men and women might have been created equally but society clearly sets them apart. Some things a man can do and get away with, if a woman should try it she would be ridiculed and judged. To booster that point, a man is allowed to marry as many times as he sees fit but if a woman tries such a thing she is looked upon as irresponsible. I see a lot of women here shouting that if the man cheats then she would leave, such women more often than not end up being alone and misrable, cos they'll fall in love with another man who would do the same. There's no simple answer to the OP's question, it all depends on the situation, for a guy it's usually an easy decision, for the woman it might be more difficult to leave......
|Family / Re: Why Are Some Wives Been Denied Next Of Kin Status By Their Husbands? by abbey621(m): 3:31pm On Aug 26|
Godmystrength: how does this look? Just know that as we have girls gold diggers so do we have boys gold diggers and also as we have girls chopping guys' money, we also have guys chopping girls' money. So don't be too hard on the girls alone........ Everyone has stories to tell o
You are 100% right, back in my college days I've seen plenty guys taking advantage of rich, naive girls.
|Family / Re: Why Are Some Wives Been Denied Next Of Kin Status By Their Husbands? by abbey621(m): 3:22pm On Aug 26|
Godmystrength: Are you trying to say that all girls from very very poor backgrounds are going to ask/are asking to be spent on by their men? And that fewer girls from very very rich background would do same? I just want to be sure i understand you clearly
Absolutely! When I say very very poor background, I mean poverty drenched household. Girls from such backgrounds are usually hard working but they are also very wise, most times they look for guys who can help their situation not one who can make it worse.
Also, girls from very very rich backgrounds are less likely to be dependent on their man's wealth. In fact, they end up being victims because they fall into the hands of guys who will exploit them for monetary gains. Now don't get me wrong there are exceptions to every rule and statistics can be skewed or manipulated but you get the gist....
|Family / Re: Why Are Some Wives Been Denied Next Of Kin Status By Their Husbands? by abbey621(m): 2:59pm On Aug 26|
Godmystrength: I am worried about this your statistic...........8 out of 10 girls?
Yes! Yes! Yes! The figure could be as low as 6/10 girls when you factor in girls from very very rich background and as high as 10/10 when you factor in girls from very very poor backgrounds. The second part of your question is simple, the guys might not honor their requests but girls are still going to ask, they feel it is their God given rights as a female.
|Family / Re: Why Are Some Wives Been Denied Next Of Kin Status By Their Husbands? by abbey621(m): 2:38pm On Aug 26|
sexybash: Why do women worry over will and properties? Honestly
It's all about the weakling complex. Most women dream of handsome, wealthy husbands to take care of them, they feel it is the right thing and exactly what they deserve in life. It's only in advanced countries that women are gradually debunking such beliefs. In Nigeria however, husbands or boyfriends are known as caregivers, from hair extensions to monthly allowance; girls are just too ridiculous. For every 10 girls in 9ja, 8 are dependent on their boyfriend or husband, the little money their parents provide or their own personal funds isn't enough to keep up with their extravagant lifestyle, they got's to belong...
|Politics / Re: If You Could Rid Nigeria One Thing,what Could It Be? by abbey621(m): 11:09pm On Aug 22|
I would get rid of your statements cos it brings shame to you as a human being. I would get rid of Oil in Nigeria and see what would happen. Finally I would get rid of Lagos, Abuja and Kaduna. Without those cities, maybe people can spread out and start developing other states.
|Romance / Re: The Kind Of Self Confidence That Attracts Women by abbey621(m): 2:46pm On Aug 22|
There are no rules or laws for perfecting attraction. One man's treasure is another man's garbage. Women are the same and different at the same time. A real man must be comfortable with himself first b4 ever thinking of attracting the opposite sex. When you surround yourself with positive vibes, you automatically become appealing to those around you. Women are generally insecure, they secretly want to be around a man that would make them feel safe and secure. They want a man that is in charge of his life and not afraid to make things happen. The best tip on attraction is to not be desperate, stop looking for women to bang or love and just be yourself, focus more on yourself, be aware of your surrounding and play it cool. Stop liking every girl's picture on social media, stop begging for love, be a man and bring out the king in you....
|Phones / Re: Nigerians Are Giving Up On Android, Want Their Blackberry Back by abbey621(m): 1:56pm On Aug 16|
It's obvious most Nigerians are clueless in regards to technology or networks. In terms of speed, functionality and excitement, my Samsung Galaxy S5 beats the dust out of any BB10 phone. If you are talking about data consumption, blame the useless networks such as Glo, MTN and the rest. If you are a proper Android user, you would know how 2 configure your phone to enjoy the excitement without going overboard on data. For BB10 users, apart from chatting and social media, I doubt their phones are capable of doing half of what Android phones are capable of without freezing. For example, try running a simulation game such as (Texas Hold em) and try to skype at the same time, this would be impossible on a Blackberry phone but a piece of cake on My Galaxy S5......End of discussion!
|Culture / Re: Why Are You Proud To Be Nigerian? by abbey621(m): 8:32pm On Aug 15|
I feel sorry for you bro, you know nothing and yet your mouth runs non-stop! If you need enlightenment just say so and stop ranting. I used $750 as an example of someone making the minimum wage, I get by making 5 times that much in a month and I'm just starting out my professional career. If everyone in 9ja pays their fair share, pay their bills on time instead of looking for mago mago ways then I bet you 120k would not last very much, I don't know about the people you associate with but Nigerians are doing big things here man! Educated and smart young brothers like myself are mixing it with the best of them, we pay our bills, enjoy life and still smart enough to save for rainy days, wise up bro!
|Culture / Re: Why Are You Proud To Be Nigerian? by abbey621(m): 2:58pm On Aug 15|
maestroferddi: I am afraid your evaluation/analysis is also skewed.
Once again I will acknowledge the fact that you made some good points but the parts in bold are just ridiculous. 1. Americans are the most critiqing set of people in the world, they sue for anything and are very quick to cry foul play. Trust me I work with them everyday. 2. If a company hires individuals to flip burgers in Nigeria and is willing to pay them 120,000 naira, I can bet you a lot of graduates would jump at the offer, forget the job, it's all about the pay. The reason many Nigerians abroad bad mouth Nigeria is because they have real and credible reasons to do so, let's be honest Nigeria is not exactly the land of milk and honey. I remember a friend of mine who left 9ja over 10 years ago finally decided to visit 9ja only for him and his family to be robbed at gunpoint, he vowed never to return to 9ja, can you honestly tell such a person that Nigeria is worth being proud of
|Culture / Re: Why Are You Proud To Be Nigerian? by abbey621(m): 1:57pm On Aug 15|
I like the first part of your comment it definitely makes sense but the second part shows you still have much to learn, for example do you know that a person flipping burgers making minimum wage of $7.25 and working full time hours of 32 hours or more makes about $750 after taxes per month, that's about 120,000 naira per month. The job might look demeaning but the pay outweighs what most banks starts new employees with. The biggest problem I have with most Nigerians is that we confuse the nature of a job with it's relevance. I know many Nigerian graduates making less than 120,000 naira a month and yet they boast of working in banks or one misguided profession, never downgrade a fellow human being based on his or her profession without having all the facts!

|Health / Re: Ebola Latest: US Rejects Nigeria’s Request For Trial Drug by abbey621(m): 1:13pm On Aug 09|
HandOfChukwu: Yes, sadly many Africans all over the continent seem to have forgotten who destroyed Africa, they seem to have forgotten about the Belgian massacre of 10 million Africans in the Congo, they seem to have forgotten about over 40 million slaves that were taken from Africa and enslaved with most brutal form of slavery to ever exist for 400 years, they seem to forget who about the apartheid regime in South Africa, they seem to have forgotten who colonized and stole from their land, they seem to have forgotten blacks in South America to this very day are treated as dogs by the whites and hispanics, they seem to have forgotten that African-Americans were being murdered just for being black up until the late 60's by the government.
Your write up made sense all the way till you used those words in bold. If you can degrade your fellow Africans with those words then what is to stop the white men from doing such. You can't blame the whites for everything, sometimes we must look within ourselves and see the true source of our problems!
|Celebrities / Re: Happy Birthday Mr Barack Obama by abbey621(m): 3:36pm On Aug 05|
You are just yapping like a tap without control. I said back up your accusations with statistical data or get lost! People like you are obviously sick, you have no idea of your own and yet you criticize those who dare try. Come up with statistics which proves Obama is inept more than any other president within the last 20 years and I'll start believing you. You must be a blockhead, look at your bolded statement, Kennedy did not have half the obstacles Obama encountered, arguing otherwise is just plain foolish!
|Celebrities / Re: Happy Birthday Mr Barack Obama by abbey621(m): 2:27pm On Aug 05|
Sounds like you have a personal agenda against Obama, I wonder if you are eligible to vote sef, it is well! From the bolded, I can tell you have no idea how the U.S Government works, I kind of think it's cute . Here you are comparing Obama to Kennedy in terms of obstacles, another joke I guess. All I can say is look at the facts and not what your aunties and uncles on television are saying. Look at the figures, the state of the economy 2008 in terms of unemployment, forclosures, etc and compare it to now, if you can honestly tell me progress has not been made, then I give up!!!
|Celebrities / Re: Happy Birthday Mr Barack Obama by abbey621(m): 1:57pm On Aug 05|
Missy89: Barack Obomber will be one of the most inept president in US history
I can see you are pretty young and probably don't know a lot about U.S history, if you did, you would realize how much of a joke your statement resembles. Learn to rid yourself of sentiments and focus mainly on facts and you'll realize this president faced an unprecedented level of chaos since Franklin Roosevelt and the Great Depression. What am I talking about?? 1: Name how many U.S presidents took office while 2 major wars were being fought? 2: Name another one to govern during a financial, hosuing and congressional meltdown 3: Name another president criticized so much based on his experience, skin color, place of birth and so on.
I can go on and on but I think you get the gist. Now wait a minute, I'm not saying Obama is one of the best presidents in U.S history, far from it but given that from 2008 till now, he has turned the U.S economy from loosing over 400,000 jobs a month to gaining over 100,000; He achieved the healthcare reform that has been impossible to do for over 30 years and finally he is teaching the rest of the world not to expect the U.S to rush into war or conflict as we have enough problems of our own. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that you would call such a president inept; a better word would be 'average' or 'satisfactory' considering the many obstacles he continues to face. Finally if all my reasoning still seems shaky to you, ask yourself this: Can you honestly blame the president 100% for any shortcomings in this current economy when the biggest culprit hides in the dark(Congress)?
|Food / Re: some Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every Day by abbey621(m): 5:36pm On Aug 04|
Just another scare tactic, cancer does not respect anyone, if you like eat healthy, exercise, be prayerful; it does not matter at all. Life is too short already as it is, you now add fear to the list and you are gone! Look at the ridiculous list, I read somewhere else that bread, butter, potatoes, even fish can cause cancer, these scientists are nuts! Abeg pass me Agege bread 60 naira and fanta, cancer kor dancer ni!!!!!

Shut your stinking mouth, you know nothing! Take a look at the other albums on that list, they are all third class albums. It's a list meant to showcase top selling albums from artiste from non major markets such as Africa, Asia, western Europe and so on. They gave ratings based on itunes sales, not by quality. If this album was truly as great as you claim, then you are admitting that it is 2face's best ever album, we all know better than that....

|Romance / Re: Can Guys Ever Be Faithful? by abbey621(m): 1:18pm On Jul 26|
Faithfulness is not based on gender; male or female a person's personality would determine if he or she would cheat. Number 1 reason guys cheat is greed, while women cheat cos they are emotionally weak. A guy would cheat if he has everything and yet he is not getting satisfaction from the one he loves. A woman would cheat if she is not close to God or does not see value in her self(Always looking to upgrade). I remember a girl that I dated for many years and she ended up cheating, when I asked her why, she said she felt the other guy could take care of her more financially. Fast forward 5 years later, I'm amazed that she's still in a state of poverty. Personally rather than cheat, is it not easier to leave

Jobless Nigerians, always having blood pressure over another person's matter. If Dangote called most of you to become his maid, butler or gateman you would jump at the opportunity, so spare me the crap! A maid is a maid, simple. Half of you probably wish your parents treated you as well as Tonto treats her maid/daughter
|Family / Re: Facing The Hypocrisy Of Men by abbey621(m): 1:32pm On Jul 21|
Another gender bashing thread, all is well! Male or female if everyone plays their God giving role then everything would be okay. Majority of men are afraid to get maried because they've either witnessed first hand the devastating consequences of a marriage gone sour or a narrative from frustrated couples. In Nigeria, the male is regarded as bread winner, ATM machine, the sole provider and even though it increases the man's ego, it does not help in the long run. Nigerian males must learn to live and let live, a strong woman can be tamed just as easily as a strong man, it all depends on understanding. Forget culture or traditional sentiments, nowadays the best spouse is one who has something to bring to the table. I rather marry an educated woman, who is financially smart, a hardworker and caring attitude, than marry a woman with low self esteem, confidence and a rundown attitude.
|Celebrities / Re: Very Pissed Off Fans Curse Out Peter Okoye & Lola For Shunning Jude's Wedding by abbey621(m): 4:04pm On Jul 18|
Senseless beings..... Their mama died, all hell broke loose. Because of overflowing wealth, they all lost focus on what's mostly important: FAMILY. Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa, a wife must know her role, she can't allow emotions to overwhelm her cos when things gets tough between the husband and her, it's his family she would turn to for help. Can't really blame Peter as he's only being a man, anyman would be upset in his situation. The only person that can resolve this is Paul, twins have a way of bonding with eachother, a bond no one else can understand, talk to your twin paul, talk to your elder brother also, use your mama as an example, life is too short for all these trivial issues.
