Hey guys,

I'm in my mid 20's and i've been working for a few years now, my current salary is very decent and i'm striving to earn more. Obviously at my age, i'm thinking of the long term which obviously includes my career but i'm also looking forward to and marriage and kids. However, the vast majority of guys i've met are either not ready for the long term, or they're still in their 'struggling' phase.

Is it bad that I want someone who is at least on the same level as me, or maybe even slightly below? Am I a 'gold-digger' because i don't really want to 'eat garri' with a guy before he blows? I've dated these guys before but even till now their level hasn't changed much despite all their talk about potential.

I don't mind having to split the bill once in a while or even contribute but i'm a lady that's used to certain tastes. My family isn't Dangote rich but we're doing quite well, and i'd like to continue living that life or at least not drop too far below. What do you guys think? Do I keep looking for these 'almost/made guys'(can anyone tell me where to find them? lol) or do I settle for a struggler.


Sorry to say, but let me spill this out for you.

If you hang out where lower middle class / struggling guys hang out. Those are who will come your way. Your circle of friends too also matters.

Your location also matters, if you are doing well but staying in a local area on the mainland. Who do you think you would mix with?

Your church / mosque also matters. You cannot be worshiping at House on the Rock or Redeem church in Banana island & be mixing up with Riff Raff's.

If you want to meet rich guys, you need to set yourself up.

How do you think all those Runs girls make the moves?

You are not a gold-digger or any of those plenty adjectives.

Settle for where you find love, respect and fulfilment.

The probability you would find all of the above in a social status way below yours is low.

As I have come to notice our daily cycle, religious, social and professional association ...plays a huge influence on who we meet.

Exactly sis. Exactly.

She's rolling with lower class people and friends / co-workers and expecting a miracle rich husband.

Lool! This is very true, but it's not 100% fool proof. I live in a nice area and attend a good church, I think I have a look that says i'm not so high maintenance (not really into weaves or makeup) which may work against me. I'm also a bit shy, which doesn't help either.

Since you've heard talks about dreams maybe it's time you start asking about finance...

I recommend you ask the salary range of any guy you get intimate/or start getting intimate with, this way, you can make your decision before things start getting serious..But its a long journey and while many guys remain stuck in their conditions, some breaktrhough and climax, my dear...Don't make permanent decisions in temporary situations...Be tact, be wise, but keep it simple and classy, share your dream with guys you meet, and let them know what your expectations are...

You have a right to your choice, don't settle for less. It doesn't make you a gold digger...

OP following your career isn't worth it,

your more likely to go barren as you grow older, you need to drop one first. I'm telling you the truth.

career for women is a scam that's why women abroad are freezing their eggs.

so that if they decide to get a child at a certain age they can do it, don't forget by 29 you are already declining as a woman.

take my advise or leave it.

when you grow old, beautiful dogs and cats won't take you to the hospital if you have a doctor's appointment.

only grown up kids do that.

Re: I'm A Young Female With A Good Job, Do I Really Have To Settle For Less? by toksbisola: 11:28pm On Sep 06, 2017
@OP; first things first; try not to look down on any man; be it a poor/rich man. A MAN IS A MAN WHETHER HE’S FROM A HUMBLE, AVERAGE OR RICH BACKGROUND.

Looking at it from another angle, to love someone is a beautiful thing; and when one is seeking a partner, it’s not just the status of the man you should look at. There are other factors that needs consideration before taking the “I DO” step as MARRIAGE IS NOT A BED OF ROSES.

The factors are; Love, Compatibility, Respect and Friendship.

You should ask yourself the few questions mentioned below when you meet someone;

Does he love you?
Is he caring?
Is he decent?
Is he hardworking?
Is he supportive?

No doubt, we all have preference’ as to what we want in a partner; but laying so much emphasis on RICHES can be a dangerous game. Besides, you’re entitled to marry a rich man IF THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT AND WOULD MAKE YOU HAPPY. But let me tell you, a man who’s rich today can become poor tomorrow; likewise a man who’s poor today can become rich tomorrow. Always look at the potential for the future in a man when seeking for a mate and not riches. If he has the potentials to make it big tomorrow; I can’t see what stops you from using your influence (as you mentioned that you come from a comfortable family) to bring the not so well to do guy up financial.

Do you know how many ladies wants to marry a rich man? There are more ladies seeking rich men than there are rich men available. The sensible ladies, would look for a man with potentials even though he might not be currently rich and encourage him to push ahead to make it and become comfortable later on in life. You might say what if I marry a poor man and he remains poor? Well you’re not in a position to see the future; hence, you can’t answer that question correctly. If he has a job and can take good care of you and the kids you’ll have; then why not? It’s not as if the not so well to do guy wouldn’t want to improve his lot in life. I am pretty sure he would want to work hard and become comfortable. WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

There are lots of women who have toiled the part in marrying a rich guy/higher status; and they are miserable in their marriages as their husbands see them as not adding any value to their life’s financially; some are even termed as GOLD-DIGGERS. On the other hand, there are also women who have married rich men/higher status that are not facing that dilemma; hence you never know.

Always note, that you can marry a man with higher status who’ll deal with you mercilessly and disrespect you on every occasion and not give you the peace of mind you require. On the other hand you can also marry a man with higher status that would give you peace of mind and love you dearly; you just never know.

Look for more important qualities that a man has aside money/riches before settling down with him to avoid stories that touch/hurt. NEVER EVER PUT HIS MONEY AND RICHES FIRST AND BLIND YOU IN HIS SHORT-COMINGS TO AVOID POTENTIAL PROBLEMS AFTER MARRIAGE.


On a final note, have you told a few people that you are looking; in case a man is looking as well and you can be recommended to him. Don’t limit yourself to only seeing people on the street as you can also meet your partner via the online avenue as well. Even here on NL is not left out as a few people have met their partners on here too. At least, I have seen a few of such threads testifying to that effect. You can also use other social media such as facebook, whatsapp, instigma etc in which you can meet someone.

If you also like someone, you can give the green light to him (this is the 21st century) as some guys are quite shy to even toast a lady and if you give them the green light, it becomes a bit easier for them to approach you.

Finally, never give up in trying to gain/get what you want to achieve; and pray for direction as well. All the best gurl


I rest my case

go for whatever gives YOU happiness but never make the mistake of looking down on any as a second is enough for someone's story to be changed. The one you turn down today because of your taste may be the one to take you to your promised land.. Do not neglect little beginnings. Just an advice

Do I keep looking for these 'almost/made guys'(can anyone tell me where to find them? lol) or do I settle for a struggler.


You obviously are a young adult old enough to know what she wants. However, I'll point out a few things to you.

Firstly, men and women are wired differently. In matters of looks, money, age, education and class, men date downwards while women date upwards. Having a woman date downwards or sideways is abnormal. Hence, you're not a gold digger as your dating requirements are in accordance with nature. However, you should borrow yourself brain o!

As to the most guys being in their struggling phases, you should understand that nature has made it that we all won't bloom at the same time. Some are early bloomers and others bloom late. A bungalow can be finished in a month, but when building a superstructure, one month is not enough for the foundation alone. I believe that you should look beyond the present and consider the character, prospects and personality of a man.

The kind of men you seek are established men in their career, business and are comfortable. However, such men that fulfil such criteria and are suitable are within the ages of 30-40. You'll notice that such men are already married. If you wish to keep seeking made guys, I can assure you that you'll find them. My question for you is that when you find them, would you satisfy their requirements before they kick you out?

You can meet young and upwardly mobile young men at various places. Polo Club on Friday evenings, Churches in Lekki, VI and Ikoyi on Sundays. Also, you can volunteer at events in the aforementioned localities. Don't snub anyone and receive all with a smile, helps to attract good people.

Don't be desperate, never be snobbish; Be ready to build with your man; Don't despise the days of little beginnings; Don't always be about what you're getting from the relationship, give freely, Smile often and be prayerful. You'll meet wonderful people.

I know you find a good guy so that I can wear my white Agbada with sunshades and beards in my complete Yoruba demon outfit to celebrate with you.

Cheers.

Hey guys,

I'm in my mid 20's and i've been working for a few years now, my current salary is very decent and i'm striving to earn more. Obviously at my age, i'm thinking of the long term which obviously includes my career but i'm also looking forward to and marriage and kids. However, the vast majority of guys i've met are either not ready for the long term, or they're still in their 'struggling' phase.

Is it bad that I want someone who is at least on the same level as me, or maybe even slightly below? Am I a 'gold-digger' because i don't really want to 'eat garri' with a guy before he blows? I've dated these guys before but even till now their level hasn't changed much despite all their talk about potential.

I don't mind having to split the bill once in a while or even contribute but i'm a lady that's used to certain tastes. My family isn't Dangote rich but we're doing quite well, and i'd like to continue living that life or at least not drop too far below. What do you guys think? Do I keep looking for these 'almost/made guys'(can anyone tell me where to find them? lol) or do I settle for a struggler.



You never settle for less,I don't. There is someone out there for everyone. I hold my head up high

I can already imagine your mouth twisted by poverty! When was the last time you ate a real meal? Why's her choice paining you so much? Look at this wretched and broke ass fool looking for a rich babe. You'll not go and work hard and make something out of your miserable and useless life! SmellyPig
And not everyone sTarted out poor. I'm sure you're one of those lazy, indolent dolts that stay in bed all day jerking off to porn and imagining "blowing", while screaming "Oluwa bless my hustle". God doesn't bless redundant masturbators. Be a man and work hard and live an okay life, maybe then you'll be able to have an opinion when relevant people are talking.

This is why God should not
bless all the poor people

look at this bitch that use
to beg for sub money..

now has a taste.
