Though I am far from 30, I have already decided not to get married. Women are leeches.

My money can only be expended on my future kids.

Live the way chance and opportunity presents to you as you are persistent,consistent on the path of what is right
i and a nairalander ,baraca,wete held in police custody,area b,apapa from thursday ,we saw the rot ,compromise ,warped justice system ,nepotism,eyes service ,tribalism,ethnic discriminations and double standards going on in our police institutions,we were detained before even investigation,by some over zealous impressionist police men ,we pay #5000 to each of the three shifts at the counter ,to be allowed to sit behind counter n use phones ,
those suspects without money were thrown into the hell of cell
everyone, nigeria is meant for the strong ,the rixh,the connected,the spiritual ,
if you are neither here nor there ,you will be pushed aside even by your junior
work hard and create your own logo ,

8. A life without Christ Jesus is worthless, meaningless and vain
Be saved today by confessing your sins and acknowledging Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour as great dreams and hard works may bring riches but also add sorrows, but Christ blesses and added no sorrow. I'm honestly a living testimony!!!!!
Repent and have eternal life as the above list CANNOT be complete without this fact!

That Number 3 is not too correct oh. Who will till the soil, breed the fish and send the yam to the municipal if every young adult drift to the cities? ... The important thing is that wherever you are, make sure you're making positive impacts towards development by being productive! Gaskiya!!

Well, I admit I didn't read that part but I think you should also take your own advice. My contribution was more emphatic than critic undecided

I also think men should follow this order!!!
1. Get you own apartment. No matter small (Don't squat).
2. Get busy, Job plus entrepreneur
3. Be mobile.
4. Build your biz
5. Get a bigger apartment.
6. Then get married if you choose to

I'm replacing no 3 with no 2. Mobility will do good to my job and intending business. Women are blessing from God if only you're with the right woman. I must settle down within 30/31

The aspect Op said leave your father's house. if you've got nothing doing pls don't leave so you won't get yourself into a bigger problem. Our parents understand how terrible Nigeria is now, but make sure you find something doing no matter how small it is.

Finished NYSC 2013, went back home, managed dad's farm for 3 years with just 10k pay that wasn't even regular but I dey see free food chop and change to keep body and soul together, and when I attend any events that brings old faces together again, they'll all think am working in one big place, not knowing its just packaging with my starched natives. grin grin saved up again and started mini importation I learn on this forum. Saved up again and went for Msc, and just as I was about rounding up, God blessed me with good FG Job, they're even ready to accept my Msc for Upgrade when the certificate is ready.

All in all find something doing. Run away from Social Media as well if you can't endure the pressure that comes with FB & IG pics, did this for 4 years and came back when I started MSc or else those peeps you're better off in uni then will make you think less of yourself when you see them doing big things in big places or else depression go kill man and be contented with the little you have.

Your piece is good. You forgot to add investment. I.e setting a pace for a better life before marriage because after marriage come more responsibility therefore u ll be unable to invest.
Alot of people will be telling their assumption of marrying early, Liaye. u can marry anytime and as u said... i remember growing up and i see kids being dropped at skool while abobby trek to skool. Life is like an old event reoccurring.
daewoorazer:
1. Days of little beginnings:

To every individual is unique print pattern. It doesn't matter which of your mates you graduated university with neither does it which of them now works with Total NG, at the end what matters is the integrity of what you do, it will payoff someday! It doesn't matter if you hawk gala on the streets today, the disaster therein is complacency. Be proud of what you do, be hardworking, and always improve on yourself; if you don't believe me, read about the Ghanian teacher who taught computer lessons by drawing them on board.

2. Never settle for less when you are still hustling:

The best time to show who you are is when you are still "in the making". If anyone steps on your foot, let the person know immediately. This is the time you can have your shoulders high up; you know why? The best friend of wealth is humility. Once wealth comes in, the wise ones know a slap from a boy of 12 years should be followed by "thank you sir/ma".

3. Leave parent's house:

Nowadays, the greatest fear of an average Nigerian man is the fear of the unknown; all thanks to the Nigerian economy. Staying under your parent's roof equates complacency and definitely you'd never be ready to throw stones at the fruits the life tree presents. Get out there and marvel you can actually feed yourself, probably even do more.

4. Leave the suburbs:

I do tell my friends this "...save being a farmer or for official reasons, what reason would a 21st century unemployed young man give for living in the villages?" Inspiration comes from seeing what magnificient projects your mates handle in the society. You claim nothing works yet you are enjoying akpu and palmwine in the village? Go out to the city and make yourself relevant. Information is power!

5. Its not always Nigerian Masters after BSc:

This is what I do tell people. Save the fact you currently work for a company and the portfolio of the office you hold supports improvement educational wise, kindly invest the money on a good and lucrative business. Make sure you do your homework well. If my parents had given me money for masters, I'd never dash it out to our poor educational system that adds nothing to the life of an average graduate. Life isn't about competition, many of your mates will rush to do masters even PhD after BSc, be intelligent enough to know what is next.

6. There is no right age for marriage:

Do you have a dream taking your time at the moment? Please invest all your energy in it. Never bow to pressure. It doesn't matter whatever tales have been told to your hearing; yes, they will surely tell you your friend's children will call you brother lagbaja. What matters at the end is the places your children can confidently march into and that which theirs cannot. Do not forget so easily how you wished you were some kids in your elementary school.

At the end if the perks of being married debars your life pursuit, the same people will be the ones to mock you! Be wise!

7. The power of life and death lies in the hand of a woman (not literarily).


It is safer not to marry than do and physically assault your wife. It does nothing but reduces man to nothing. As a young man, never take women seriously and do not kill yourself for a woman, the right woman will actually expend less of your energy and money.
