Romance / Re: In All Honesty, Whom Will You Call Back? Romance Section Apt Test by Tinkybabe(f): 12:15pm On Nov 24, 2013
And yet people keep falling for the trick..haha...
I thought it's an aptitude test not an attitude test .

Op,we could use this to prove a theory about the romance section.

Hypothesis- Most romancelanders are more sentimental than logical.

Creamychic: I'll call the girl i got a MISSED call from.
If I received a call from the doctor, my boss, dad, sister or BF, it would mean i already spoke with them right?

You are absolutely correct! Lol @how almost everyone fell for the trick...


Family / Re: Mod Please Give It Suitable Topic by Tinkybabe(f): 6:27pm On Nov 23, 2013
I think you all are being hard on this young man. He's frustrated and his mention of suicide I'm assuming is to attract attention.

He seems like a serious person who wants something tangible for himself. That he suggested arming himself with some vocational skills whilst the strike is on is an effort on his part and I must confess I'm disappointed in his parents for not supporting him..Who better should encourage and support him to make the best use of this involuntary break?

And really,it's weird for him to expect some money from his parents while at home? shocked.I'm shocked!I'm sure these parents are not financially incapable,cuz if it's the case it's a different matter entirely.

Anyway OP, it's your life at the end of the day and you know what you want for yourself. If your parents are not ready to support you...Hustle reasonably, get a part time job or something, make some money and acquire whatever vocational skills you want( Though it looks like the strike is drawing to a close).

The irony of it is that it's as bad or even worse than physical cheating because one plunges deeper and deeper and feels they are still in check of their emotions until they are completely overturned leading to a sort of detachment from their partner..

I call it a silent destroyer because it feels harmless ,the signs are subtle until it boomerangs

You don't have to be a doubting Thomas because the guy is a young achiever.He posted a picture of his American passport two years ago to debunk speculations like this and his year of birth was 1992.

Try to be less of a doubter and be sincerely happy for him
happy birthday Davido.

Romance / Re: Why Are Young Girls Rushing To Marry Lately? by Tinkybabe(f): 6:24pm On Nov 21, 2013
It begs the question how many of these girls are psychologically,emotionally and financially mature to handle the responsibilities that accompany a marriage?

Many of these girls enter the institution for the wrong reasons and with the wrong mindset.For those that had dreams,their dreams become thwarted when they are faced with the realities of marriage.

No one is saying they should become old cargos before considering marriage but they should at least tick these boxes that would put them in a better position.No one wants to be a liability in their home.Failure to plan results in planning to fail.

The road to achieving one's goals is far easier when single,when one's not saddled with marital responsibilities as concentration and focus is more then than when one begins a family.

If at 19 ,a girl has what it takes to run a home then by all means she's good to go .
I still maintain though that not many of these girls do.

The latest fad Naija people are doing here now is to say "no children" at weddings and events like the oyibos do.

So true!Went for my close family friend's wedding 2 years ago
She of course had the "no children allowed" rule on the IV and in addition had
"For gifts,please get a gift card from ..... store or come with a monetary gift.thank you"
I think the latter is cool though,no one wants 20 deep fryers as gift

By his stripes,she is healed!

Op what of your dad or older relatives?If she's feeling as bad as you've highlighted here then she should be placed on admission.I want to believe her ailment is beyond house treatment medics,she probably needs to be under the close supervision of a health professional.

You guys should take her to a better hospital and have a chat with the practitioner to know what's wrong.
It is well.

salsera: @all UK based people

How do guys cope with this tradition of paying for your own meal when you're invited for a bday party at a restaurant

I go soon reject offers oh -person go still buy bday card again

I remember when I got into the country newly and a friend invited me to her sister's bday outing..I was reluctant at first but later agreed only for her to tell me to hold atleast 20pounds to order..I exclaimed ogini! no be your sister dey celebrate birthday..I quickly activated my reluctant mood and turned down the invitation..when I have food in my house..ehnn..lol.

I'm used to it now grin

Family / Re: I Have Not Been True With My Man by Tinkybabe(f): 2:58pm On Nov 20, 2013
OP your boyfriend seem like a good guy but insecurity (if it's true ) is a major problem.No doubt, you've seriously erred and it's time you started on a clean slate.

Open up to him,tell him everything withholding nothing and why you acted the way you did.If as a result of saying the truth,the relationship hits the rock because he can't stand a woman working or earning more than him,then so be it.

I know it's hard but I tell ya,it's better you know his stance now on issues like this than in marriage.

Don't stall any further,tell him everything now!He would be so justified in ending it if he hears it from an outsider and your reason then would make absolutely no sense.
Family / Re: To The Men, I'm Just Wondering Why. by Tinkybabe(f): 1:16pm On Nov 20, 2013
It boils down to the upbringing.For men that are lazy and believe they have no business doing house chores,their mentality and training should be faulted and this is mostly due to the influence their mothers had on them.

In a household where the female child is responsible for everything,cleaning,cooking,washing etc while the male child is treated like a demi god and left to do nothing you can imagine the type of man such a boy would grow up to become.

I thank God for the type of family I was raised in-no gender possesses the monopoly of a chore.
And this is the same mentality that would be instilled in my kids,boy and girl.
Romance / Re: Good Old days by Tinkybabe(f): 11:58am On Nov 20, 2013
Op you lack confidence because you are scared of rejection.
One thing you should know is that rejection is almost inevitable.The world's most successful people have at one point in their lives faced rejection but why they have risen to the height they are now is because they didn't allow the rejection or fall to deter them.They kept trying and used these rejections to their advantage.

About women,first of,women are human beings and are not superior to you.The worst a girl can say to you is no.One thing you should have at the back of your mind when walking up to a girl is that it could be a win or lose situation.

Now on approaching girls,try to make friends with them first-don't come on too strong.In fact try not to make a romantic relationship your priority...Just come on as a basic friend.

Engage them in general and sensible convos,be humorous whilst being yourself and just endeavour to socialise generally-with the right company of course..

Build that confidence not in a bid to get a girl but to make yourself a better and stronger person overall.


Romance / Re: Marriage Proposal Without A Ring by Tinkybabe(f): 10:53am On Nov 20, 2013
Just like many have said,an engagement ring is significant.It is the evidence or proof of a proposal..We know how signicant proofs are these days to establish or confirm a worded agreement or claim.It has to be physical,something that can be seen.

Now why a ring?A ring is a round object having no start or end point and this symbolises life eternal.When a man extends a ring to the woman he purposes to spend the rest of his life with,he's assuring her of his eternal love for..a love that has no end(whether he stays true to this is subjective)

Why it is given by the man and not exchanged by both parties?proposal is the prelim stage,an introductory stage.He is the one doing the proposal-all he requires from the woman is a positive reply,her acceptance.He brought up the deal,he has to prove the seriousness or sincerity of his proposal with something physical ,a ring.

The deal is then completely sealed by both parties when they exchange wedding rings

But really,this was started by someone and has been practised over generations so it's a tradition..if you ask me though,I think it's logical.

Family / Re: Help!! He's different on nairaland by Tinkybabe(f): 9:13pm On Nov 19, 2013
My take on this,no serious minded human being would maintain a negative facade over a long time especially when serious/pressing issues are being discussed and advice being solicited.

He says he's having fun,trying to appear unattractive to women at the expense of that grieving woman,girl or man who came here for help?

Nairaland I say,is an extension of a person's real personality(who they are or who they'd be if an opportunity avails itself).I understand there are times one would want to have fun and act an alter ego but when this is being reflected in every single and serious topic,it is very likely such a person is exhibiting his/her character .

The best place to be who you really are is an anonymous forum where no one knows or can judge you.

Anyway,be careful and just watch him closely (don't mean you should start snooping around )to see if he has (no matter how subtle) any of his online traits in real life.

And if you have a little conviction that he's for real,worry less about his online persona..and take his word for it.All the best.

Just as bludeville as said..these are the things you guys should consider.

Try not to force your refusal down her throat..Make her see reasons,reveal the bigger picture- table the options/ consequences before her and jointly weigh them.

Your reason should go beyond" I'm okay with three".
