“Please, make sure you marry your friend or best friend” is not a mere motivational sweet line from relationship experts and marriage counselors - it’s actually a timeless gem.
Know this today: what friendship is to a relationship or marriage is what passion is to a career.
On a weary day or during the exhaustion phase that’s inevitable in love relationship & people’s chosen career, that the power of a relationship / career runs out, friendship / passion is the alternative power reserve one unconsciously switches to that continues to power the link.
Know that without these two, when relationship & career are tired, they fall flat into a vacuum. A relationship or marriage without friendship is like a staircase without a supportive handrail; like a pretty dress with no underwear underneath & a body of love without a skeleton.
Don’t just fall in love with your partner & run with it; It’s never a must to love who you like but It’s imperative & necessary that you must like already who you love - make it happen before love.
The shock absorber of love is friendship. Never forget that.

Marry your friend.

Dear expectant single lady, let start this pep talk with some of the reasons why it’s not a crime to HELP a man find you:

1.Some men are shy & unusually reserved, they need more receptivity from you to make that move.
2.Based on how flourishing & happy you live & appear..
..offline & online, some men ’ve silently concluded that you’re in a relationship.
3.The men that still genuinely believe & desire marriage are getting low by the day. You aren’t as visible to your prospective value-mate as much as think you are. In fairness to yourself, when..
..you spot a worthy man, move closer.

4.Many men have an exaggerated sense of economic status they believe they should establish before landing a wife but on the contrary, they didn’t know some women are willing to understand their process & help with the economic reality.

Let’s talk about something i termed the ‘anti-derailing mechanism’. It’s more like the intimate back watching in relationship / marriage. This is not monitoring, it’s a form of check and balance when you trust, believe & respect each other’s capacity and sense of judgement...

...this strange friend of yours got motives. Her major scheme is probably to steal your woman’s place.
What you can’t see, your woman sees already. Everything is not jealousy, learn to be receptive to her ideas, the intuitive intelligence of a woman is unbelievably accurate...

PEACE OF MIND: One of the most carelessly used and at the same time one of the most misunderstood phrase in our dating and marital space in Nigeria.
Let’s talk about the SELFISH-TYPE-OF-PEACE-MIND, the rampant one in our society.

Shall we ? Let’s go
FOR SOME OF MY COUNTRY MEN: Peace of mind is their life of non-accountability. Where they can eat their cake & still have it.
Where they can have a girlfriend or a wife that don’t question them for clarity & explanation. Where she doesn’t demand for improvement or hold them...
...accountable to their responsibility especially to their vows and duties.

This crooked habit of demanding for Peace of mind regardless of who they are to their spouse is for the type of men that detest communication, transparency and most especially the ones that lack...
