This is Mekus and I will be bringing you relationship articles
Since my friends and I are in our late twenties most of our conversations seem to be focused on relationships and marriage. Most women seem to be ready to settle down right after their college graduation. Men on the other hand, are the complete opposite. Their rationale seems to be “why settle down and have one woman when I can have all of them?” I want to direct this post to the men,so fellows, listen up so you do not end up like this joker.
Meet Tim, a successful 26 year old real estate investor, who has a great job, knows his culture and back ground and keeps in shape. The ladies like Tim because of the way he dresses, his attitude, and “Swag”. You can say that Oga Tim has everything going for him. Career wise he is doing extremely well compared to his age mates. He is pushing a Mercedes and just bought a nice house. Tim likes to have a good time on the weekends. He is the definition of a play-boy. Tim has a phethora of women in his life … enjoyment is his middle name. Tim meets a fine Ghanaian babe that matches his hearts desires. They date for a while and she is pressuring him to settle down. Tim is feeling the chic but he is still doing runs on the side with other babes. Tim agrees to settle down with the babe and they date for a couple years or so. It looks like all roads lead to marriage until Tim informs the babe that he needs some space and he is not ready for commitment. He goes back to his enjoyment lifestyle and picks up where he left off.
After playing the field for a while he meets another delicious babe who he truly falls for. They date exclusive for two years and all of his guys hail them Mr. and Mrs. All the signs once again are pointing towards marriage and Tim destroying his black book. Things take a turn for the worse as Tim decides he wants some time to think. Consequently he decides he wants to be a bachelor for a couple more years. He explains to the current babe that if only they meet 2 years from now he would be ready. The babe is confused because things were so perfect to add insult to injury this babe had made a lot professional sacrificies for this joker. Tim wasn’t concerned by all theses things, he just wanted to be free. Tim has more dollars in his pocket thanks to a couple of promotions at work. So Tim is popping Champ-a-gini every weekend … After being free he comes to realization that being single is not that much fun anymore as most of his friends are married with children. He tries to holla at his Ex who is now in a committed relationship and she blows him off.
Keep in mind that throughout all this Tim is now 36 year old man and not looking so good. He goes to any function where he may meet potential mates. He tries the same line on every girl he meets. Most of the babes he encounters are looking at him and saying, “what is this old man trying to talk to me for? Does he not realize that I am 10 years younger than him?”. When he meets a new potential he is acts like a kid in a candy store: full of excitement and giddy. Tim realizes that he messed up when he was younger and should have settled down years ago. Now he is old, out of shape, and lonely and worst part is the recession has affected his money so he is not “balling” like he used to.
So guys don’t be like Tim make you organize yourself early. Our problem is that we have the right to choose so we go chill and enjoy different dishes. When it is time to pick a dish most of you namas (Cow) will choose a buffet. When you finally settle down it will be with one washed up babe or one desperate babe that marriage is wetin she wan chop for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is a sad situation because Tim was a catch 10 years ago but now he is that scary man that babes dey hide from at parties, weddings, and so on. So biko don’t be like Tim … If you have a good woman; wife her up so we can come wear suit for you and chop rice. I better get an invitation to your wedding.
Ladies, if you happen to run into any “Tims” be very firm with him and keep asking what are we doing before different parties get attached. My favorite question is: “What are your Intentions with me”. Although harsh and to the point this question answers any subjectivities. Oh yea do not take the response “I don’t know”. Keep pressing till he breaks down.
This Mekus aka “ Future Tim if not careful” signing off.
