“Let me cook for you”
Someone please tell me they have had their Naija man cook for them? An entire meal where you did not have to make any of it. Bonus points if he:
- served the food too
- tried cooking oyinbo food for you (at your request, or because he knows you like it)
- cleaned the kitchen (including dishes and pots and pans!) after the meal
“I planned a surprise for you”
This doesn’t include the proposal though! I have heard of some pretty exciting proposals by Naija men but how many women have been surprised by an event or gift that was planned by their boyfriend for either a special occasion (other than a proposal) or “just because”?
“It’s ok if you don’t want to cook or like to cook. I’ll do all the cooking”
I know I’m dreaming with this one but surely there are Naija men out there who are good cooks AND who don’t mind being the main cook in the house? I think I should just give up on finding such a guy.
“Talk to me about your feelings; I really just want to listen to them”
Ok, it’s not only Naija men that are guilty of not uttering these words: oyinbo men don’t always either. I think men in general have this urge to solve problems so they find it frustrating to listen to someone’s complaints and not offer solutions when all I want is somebody to listen to me.
“I too believe in not having sex before marriage! I’m so glad I’ve found you.”
lol, I won’t hold my breath on this one. Granted, none of the guys I’ve ever talked to ever got to the point where such activities would be discussed seriously but that means I’ve still never heard a guy be upfront about his intentions to save sex for marriage. Has anyone dated a guy who stated that was his intention?
Who can prove me wrong on any of these? I hope someone can!
