Read it below…
As one who is brilliant, beautiful and curvy, why are you still single?
Iâ€™m gonna say this alright; I donâ€™t care how people take it, the days when marriages were sweet and all beautiful are no more. If you listen to how your parents got married and how those days it was sweet, itâ€™s not like that anymore. Iâ€™ve escorted a lot of people into marriages, I wonâ€™t say Iâ€™ve escorted them out but Iâ€™ve witnessed them come out of it.
So psychologically itâ€™s not good for people and then being what we are, a lot of people think because sheâ€™s this, because she has that I donâ€™t think I will be able to handle them. A lot of people canâ€™t stand an industrious woman especially if sheâ€™s doing well. Itâ€™s the mentality of the people. If a man looks at me, Iâ€™m a car freak alright. I have five cars and Iâ€™m not doing it because Iâ€™m trying to show off, a lot of people donâ€™t even know that they are my cars.
But Iâ€™m trying to be honest with you and Iâ€™m always trying to say it the way it is, not minding whatever. If a man comes and says because of blablabla, he cannot handle me, then he shouldnâ€™t bother. Every womanâ€™s dream is to get married but itâ€™s not just to get married but to get married to your friend. I want to marry my friend.
And have you met your friend?
Iâ€™m yet to meet my friend. If I meet my friend and I know that he is my friend, I donâ€™t think that question should actually pop up because what am I doing if Iâ€™ve met my friend? If Iâ€™ve met my friend I will get married. And then, Iâ€™m this type of person that even if I meet my friend; I donâ€™t want to have a fairy tale wedding.
Hmmm. What ladies go through!
