A Must Read For The Single Ladies – Do You Want A Perfect Man?

If you are still struggling to find a husband at An old age because you are looking for a perfect man something is wrong with you, sorry to say that but it’s true, your propaganda magazine tells you that all men are liars, cheats and useless, but let’s be honest here, which is more likely? Is it that there’s something wrong with one African woman?

Ladies, you certainly will not get into a blissful matrimony if you are always hanging out with your so called girlfriends every night at a beer palour, night clubs or bar and waiting for a guy to buy you a drink and take you home.

How to Be the Perfect Man Every Women Would Want

perfect man
Do you dream of becoming a chick magnet who can get any woman he wants no matter where he goes? Find out how to be a better man using a role model.

1. Good looks
This is fairly obvious i believe, don’t believe it when women say beauty is only skin deep as let’s face it, it’s not. There are only a handful of ugly Hollywood stars out there, and that’s mainly because they need someone to act the villain. So if you haven’t brushed your hair or washed your face in ages, do so soon. Women like fresh faces, lose the beard or the mustache and if possible, get a neat hair cut.

2. Good physique
Don’t believe it when women say fat/obese/chubby guys are cute and huggable, what women really want to hug it those lean mean bodies.

We’ve Been Childless For 4 Years And My Wife Is Not Bothered About It. What Do I Do?


Dear Readers,
Let me appreciate the good work you guys are doing through this column. I have been an ardent follower of this column and the daily post news. More grease to your elbows.
I have a challenge to share. Permit me to hide my identity please. I have been married for about four years without a child and unfortunately, my wife has not helped matters by her reluctance for reasons best known to her. 
As christians, we have naturally been praying. We have attended several special programmes for prayers and still praying. Medically, we did some tests. For me, I did a semen analysis test which the doctor certified very good. For her, she did some tests including the HSG which showed that she is okay, but the gynaecologist asked her to do a Laproscopy after which he will administer appropriate medications.
She has vehemently refused to do it. All efforts to get her to do it has failed. Traditionally, her parents and mine had suggested herbs for her to take but she has refused. At this juncture, I have got options running through my mind like getting a willing beautiful girl to be the mother of my children because I’m not getting younger either.
Now before you think I’m impatient, note this: I know that people wait for longer years, but my issue is with the attitude towards the problem by my wife..what do you think I should do please? kindly advise me.

Thank you,

I’m Pregnant For My Married Boyfriend, He Doesn’t Know I’m Also HIV+ – Should I Tell Him?

Dear Readers,
I’m a young lady aged 27 from Lagos, I was on the street working as a s*x worker for about a year and a half until I met this man.

I was only doing that to raise money for my school. This man took me to his place and we slept together. We never used protection, because he insisted and offered to pay a lot more for going in without protection so I gave in.

Then he told me not to go back to the streets, he said he wanted me to be his girlfriend until his wife who is abroad returned home. Since then he has been sleeping with me just like his own wife.

I got pregnant for him and one day during a routine check for all pregnant women I tested positive to HIV but I have not told him about it. This man is an accountant and lives a comfortable life and can’t afford to lose him. His wife will be returning from UK in December but I’m not ready to move out because I feel he’s also my husband.

What can I do at this point? I feel so confused and don’t know what to do. Should i tell him?

I Am Pregnant for my younger Sister’s Husband: What Should I Do?


Dear Readers,

I am Pregnant for my young sister’s husband. I traveled to Lagos to buy clothes for my shop about two months ago and had to spend a few days in my sister’s place.  I called her but her number wasn’t going so when I got to Lagos I contacted her husband who told me that she went to Ogun State on official assignment.
He agreed that I should come over and do my transaction from their house.It was raining when I got there so I got socked, especially while trying to get their keys from a neighbor.
They live in a one-bedroom apartment, so I had to go inside the room to change. I was really cold and was already wishing I had a man I could visit in Lagos when the unexpected happened.
Due to the rain my sister’s husband came in through a back door from the kitchen straight into the bedroom and I was completely unclad; I couldn’t even bend down to pick my clothes.
I was just standing there motionless until he grabbed me and, yes, we did it. We didn’t feel any guilt, just laughed about it and I prepared food. We both ate, slept together and had sex all night with each other. The sequence continued for the three days I spent in Lagos but after the first time we agreed he shouldn’t release his sperm inside me.
Am now back to Enugu where I do my business, but unfortunately I am six weeks pregnant. No man friend, no boyfriend, no sex mate…. So who will I give this pregnancy to?
My sister’s marriage is less than a year and I just cant mention this to her husband. The options I have thought of is either to kill myself or have an abortion. Is there any other way out of this mess I have gotten myself into?
What Should I Do?

My Husband Keeps Taking Money From My Purse, Please What Can I Do?


How do I handle a situation like this,where my husband keeps taking money from my purse without my knowledge. We live alone together so no one else could be responsible. 
Before now, I didn`t bother counting the money I leave in my handbag but when I realized that it’s as if am spending more than expected,I started counting what I leave in my bag.
On a number of occasion though, my hubby agreed that he did take some money but not until I asked.
I have requested politely a couple of times that he should let me know whenever he takes anything,once I complained with annoyance but most times I keep quiet as if I didn’t know.
From what I understand, the wives are most times guilty of this act, but is it something husbands do as well. Now, what do you think I can do without really hurting his feelings knowing that he’s not too buoyant financially. Please I Really need your advice!
