A Fool or a Fine Man. Thoughts?




Reading through this I couldn't decide if this guy is a halfwit, if he's simply god-sent or both. I mean, I'm not quite sure what to think. I admire his selflessness and sentiments, but if at 21 what you want to do is sit down and take care of a woman with three children, then dare I say you might fail to provide a life and a future for your own children when the time comes. 

Oh well, what say you; should we applaud the 21 year old or give him a knock on the head?

  1. 1st thought that entered my head was my 21 yr old brother whom i still call BABY BRO....so i'm going with a knock on the head

  2. 3 days ago the argument was if it was alright for a 22 year old lady to date a 37year old man and the general consensus was that age sometimes has nothing to do with maturity. Well here's a 21 year old man who started dating this heavily pregnant lady, single mother of two, for approximately 90 days. At his age he already knows the pains of single parenting and the damage it's doing to the Black Race and he's been supporting his pregnant boo with 2 kids...for 90 days. Halfwit? I don't think so, not after 90 days and this Facebook Post.

    2. My youngest sis had her first date when she was 19. It's about maturity, not age.

  3. Did he have to tell the whole world his life history??

    1. That is raising awareness to the reality of the hood most times in america. That's war u don't see on cable televisions like CNN and FOX. *sigh

      Stop leaving babies fatherless. That's the point

  4. I'm totally in support of his actions. So he should run away from it, after all 'Wetin consign am?'. That's a 21years old MAN. I'm sure the real father is a 30years old boy or more.

    I'm even surprised that this is being deliberated on here. He didn't just wake up one morning looking for babies to father, he loved a woman and found she was pregnant. That pregnancy didn't stop him from loving her less.

    Please this should be applauded abeg. We should be promoting fatherhood. Imagine this guy out of his life, that would be another child without a father figure.

    1. The "man" is delusional.

    2. Let me assume u are trying to defend your age, as u can't believe someone younger than you could act this matured and yet u can't even think of being in that state of mind at yours.

      Neymar the Brazilian player was born 1993(22). He has a child already. #stateofmind. Please ignore age (it is a number)

    3. cosigning.
      This 21yr old is a fine specimen of a man. He has the heart, courage and all the love to do a good deed that many men twice, thrice and a quadruple his age cannot handle. He should be applauded for choosing to take on the role of the father to a boy who would have joined the statistics of millions/billions out there who are growing up without a father-figure and getting themselves into all kinds of mess.

  5. Applaud him all the way! As long as they both have the resources to take care of the children together.
    My Friend's Step father adopted her and her 2 siblings when he married their mother.Her mum is late now,The man still caters for all their needs. Infact, you will NEVER know he isn't their dad.

  6. Thanks Uyi.
    It takes more than age to be a man. The father's of the kids who knocked her up are prolly older than this 21yr old yet he walked in while they walked out.
    It (or they) might not be his kids but he's making a conscious choice to do right by them.
    Age is nothing but a number and I wld always praise a man who chooses to rise above.

  7. Well all I know is he chose a woman.
    I'm not sure if he's "a fool or a fine man."

    I'm wondering what story the woman told him, how old she is, and if he is capable of the responsibility of having "a family" in such short time of knowing her.

  8. If only he was older.......

    Time will tell. If he stays with her for another ten years, then I'd applaud him. But right now, I hope he knows what he's getting into, that's her third baby oo

    1. Really? U wld appluad if he's there till another 10yrs?
      Kids aside,there are r/ships and marriages that cldnt survive the 10yr benchmark yet the men in those relationships were older than 21.

      Delete
    2. In those ten years, he would have seen LIFE and all there is to being a single father to three children. (I only hope they are from the same man). What it really entails. Nurturing them. Then what do I know? I guess I'm speaking from the Nigerian perspective. :)

      Age has nothing to do with marital success. Forget those men....

      Delete
    3. Even the men that got married at 30 have no idea what it takes to be a father.They take on that responsibility as soon as the kid comes so seeing life has nothing really with having the experience to be a father. All fathers learnt as they go so the 21 year old won't be different. I applaud him whether he stays 10 years or not, he was bold enough to take on what some men twice his age cannot handle. The point he made about rebuilding black families shows his level of maturity.

    4. The full story I hear is that the dude in Question is a Soldier. So yh they've seen more death and strive than their average male counterpart. So it takes courage (not just age) to take up the responsibility of fatherhood be it to ur own kids of those of another...

      Delete
    5. I'm just thinking, probably he never even had a father figure in his life, u know.

      Delete
  9. I would look beyond his age but his actions and words coupled with the fact that we are talking of a developed economy (I believe) unlike Nigeria where at 25, if care is not taken, you are still struggling to pass out of the university with a fair grade. I think he has a good idea of what he is getting himself into and it's a noble cause with selfless intention (it is in Nigeria that an average guy who wants a single mum may be a dupe).

    1. Yeah, average guys!

      But what if the single mum isn't wealthy, Can we still classify an average Nigerian guy as a dupe?

      Delete
    2. Uyi, I wrote 'may be'...... More so, wealthy is relative. I have heard experiences of some not-so-rich single mums being 'duped' financially and otherwise (please insert s3x etc)

    3. So because of that we should assume the average Nigerian guy with a single mum is a dupe? Lol.

      Anyways I get Ur point but I'm kinda looking at it from a different perspective.

      And I don't think u can just judge an average Nigerian guy with a single mom as a dupe, mainly because I'm a true believer of Love.(u can roll Ur eyes, yeah yeah)

  10. I think he's a fine young man. In this day and age where men are ditching their responsibilities(like the baby's dad), we should applaud those who are actually taking responsibility. Yes he's 21 years old but he's most definitely more mature than whoever knocked that woman up. That said, he also didn't say he was going to drop out of school to take care of them, bearing in mind that he stayed with her for the last 3 months of the pregnancy and birth, and the hospital bills have probably come, its safe to say he has a fairly good idea of what it takes. I hope they make it.

  11. This 'fine' young man is not just mature. He is BRAVE!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
