|Romance / Re: 10 Disgusting Habits Ladies Exhibit Immediately You Toast Them by missloluwa(f): 7:31pm On Feb 09, 2018|
Hmmm, I'm only guilty of No.6 as a Jesus baby lol.
I think OP and the rest of the guys complaining should review the type of girls they're going for. I don't know any female friend of mine that would act like this.

You're actually making so much sense, but I don't expect people with the "Nigerian" mindset to agree with you or even understand in general. People hear about others who faced real hardships, yet still managed to make it but there's always "a reason" why we can't apply that same diligence and hard work and get similar results.
I don't think there is any justification for robbing someone of their possessions, regardless of the situation you're facing. But that's just my own opinion *shrugs*.

|Romance / Re: I'm A Young Female With A Good Job, Do I Really Have To Settle For Less? by missloluwa(f): 11:06pm On Sep 07, 2017|
Wow guys, I can't believe I made front page with my first thread i'm overwhelmed by the responses. There was a lot of good advice and a lot of pained advice and a lot of advice that may work for others but not for me. Thanks to all that commented, I hope you find your own true partner one day. With that in mind i'd like to clarify some things:
1. I don't look down on less advantaged people, i've dated some and their mindset didn't work for me. (Insecure and low ambition, the ones I dated sha)
2. I mentioned I want someone on my level, not a rich or ready made guy, however someone with potential from a good home would do well too
3. I live in a good estate on the Island (off Chevron drive) and my family are firmly middle class, there is a certain level of spouse they are expecting from me. Did you castigate Zahra Buhari for looking for and marrying a rich guy?
4. I was born abroad(US) and have the relevant papers, I am not looking for a meal ticket or a way out of Nigeria, I can leave any time
5. I earn above 350k a month and even if I lost this job, my level wouldn't change. However, I am determined not to rely on my family's wealth.
6. I assumed people would understand that money/family background is secondary to more important things like character, personality and interests(ain't marrying no Man U supporter) but if this wasn't obvious, that's my bad
7. I am 25, I just like saying mid 20's, i like the way it sounds
8. I'm not in a rush, i'm just curious about my future, ultimately I know I should trust in God more, he has my back.
9. Is it not on this same nairaland that people were saying a person earning less than X Naira shouldn't get married, that applies here too
10. It is also here that men are crying that their women who earn more than them have turned into the ogas of the house, i'd rather avoid issues like this please
Hmm that's all I can think of for now, thanks again guys.

Aww thank you
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.
Looool chickens my chest!!
Lol, i'm impatient I know, i'm working on it.
Actually, sometimes luck comes into play. I was lucky/blessed to get this job, but I also worked hard to make sure I had the necessary skills so that when the oppurtunity came I killed the interview!

I'm in my mid 20's.
Hmmm, technically I found the respect with them. Love and fulfilment are so abstract, it's hard to determine how much is really enough. I like this answer though, thanks

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.

|Politics / Re: How Is Electricity Power Supply In Your Area? by missloluwa(f): 8:57am On Sep 02, 2017|
How do we really know they don't take light in our areas if we go to work/out of the house each day? hmmmm......
Anyways, in my area of Ajah, Lagos we have near constant light. There are times where they don't take light at all for periods of a week or so, sometimes it's a bit worse and they make take it once a day for about a few hours.
I have an inverter though so sometimes it's difficult to know which one we're on unless it's night time. At this point we haven't had to use our gen in a month, which is wreaking havoc on it's battery.
|Career / Re: What Does It Mean To Be A Contract Staff? by missloluwa(f): 9:06am On Aug 30, 2017|
I think the problem here is that Nigerians like to use negative experiences and transform them into sweeping generalisations.
Contract staff work under a particular contract, you work X amount of months for X amount of pay and X benefits.
Being a contract staff isn't necessarily a bad thing and there are various reasons why companies hire contract staff. For example, some want to have insurance against hiring someone off the bat in case they don't perform well. In this case the contract is used as a sort of probationary period. In other cases the role is a temporary one, maybe there's a project you want to execute and you don't have the experience in house. You can contract the outstanding roles to another person or company to undertake the project for you.
Many contract workers actually get paid higher than their peers because what they are being hired for is a specialised role that is hard to fill. These workers also receive benefits that other workers may not and are not bound by office politics because they're not really part of the company.
However, some contract workers are actually company slaves who work hard and get paid badly. If this is your case, you need to do all you can to become indispensable to the company. Learn as much as you can and find a better, more permanent job when you can.
All in all, as a contract worker you have to be smart, and you have to know your rights, otherwise they'll milk you dry.
|Celebrities / Re: Beverly Naya Was Bullied For Having Bad Eczema, Crooked Teeth, Lightbulb Head by missloluwa(f): 10:40am On Aug 25, 2017|
I'm absolutely appalled that someone that writes like this has the audacity to say that someone else is a 'dullard in term of brain'.
I guess, on the internet, anyone can say what they want.

|Politics / Re: Victoria Island Garden City Flooded After Hours Of Rainfall In Lagos Today (Pics by missloluwa(f): 11:31am On Jun 07, 2017|
Every area in Lagos has it's issues:
1. The pull for certain areas on the island is that they have almost constant light, good water and security. The cons are obviously the flooding and sometimes traffic and distance from the happening areas.
2. Surulere is hailed for it's location and accessibility, but some areas are dangerous and the houses are cramped.
3. Other mainland areas have cheap houses and are secure, but the traffic na die, they have no light and they are far away.
4. While on some areas of the island there's a lack of good water, bad roads and poor transportation to contend with.
All in all, people choose to live where they live, it's not for you to come and gloat over an area's misfortunes, instead we should be brainstorming to improve the situation for everyone. It's interesting to see how people living in their own houses are tagged wannabees because they live in a specific area though

|Career / Re: MTN Nigeria Sacks 280 Long-serving Workers, Others by missloluwa(f): 12:47pm On May 02, 2017|
They were not sacked neither were they compelled to leave. MTN allowed those who wanted to leave to do so, however some people may have felt like it was safer to leave now than find out later that they may need to be made redundant.
