Romantic Gestures or Not

Posted on: 09/01/2012

Ladies Ladies Ladies, I know at some point we’ve all hated the idea of flowers, poetry, showing up on our door step unannounced and most especially a singing boyfriend. Some mushy mushy girls might like it sha and some kpako girls might claim to like it cos it makes them feel posh.

But have you ever noticed how much you appreciate a romantic gesture, no matter how little, from a guy you are actually into? Even if he writes gibberish and says it’s a song you’ll be his number one fan, especially at the beginning of the relationship. My first boyfriend loved to think he was a rapper….when the relationship was about to hit he rocks I swear I had fantasies about shooting him in the head anytime he tried to rap. It was horrid…lol.

Some girls get really pissed when a guy asks where they are or where they’ve been (I’m guilty of that too), but the moment they are in love with a dude they think it’s “adorable” that he’s so insecure and jealous. I guess my point is…it doesn’t matter what a guy’s vice is, there is always a girl who would think that vice is silly but adorable. We’ve made excuses for liars, braggers, men who don’t keep appointments, men who want to hide us from their families, men who leave us and marry someone else…the list is endless. In essence, it’s not really safe to say what you can and can’t tolerate until you have actually left a guy you love because of that particular vice.

Don’t get me wrong, there are basic things we can’t stand, example, I don’t like guys that sweat a lot, I hate the sight of “man sweat” let alone the feel of it, so naturally I wouldn’t even come close enough to like that dude…but when a girl says she can’t marry a shorter guy, she might just decide to have him as a friend, because being short is not something he can work on really so she gets to know him as a person and in the absence of anything or anyone else could find herself in love, some go for a “not so hot” looking guy, or a thrifty guy, a mommy’s boy, a gigolo, a cry baby….these are things that could be overlooked.

What I’m getting at is this, it would be wise for us single ladies to begin to educate ourselves on the vices we know we can work with because some of us actually are too picky. Have u checked yourself? Do you know that there might be something about you that is extremely irritating? Just because guys put up with it doesn’t suddenly make you the “bomb diggity”. Nobody is perfect. I might not date a heavy sweater but I’d date a shorter guy…Think am.
