3 Types Of Men I Just Don't Want...

A man who cheats is many women's biggest problem or fear. An abusive man is an absolute nightmare that no one should have to live with. A stingy man is said to be even worse than an unfaithful man. Most women run away from these, your truly included. But these other three also make me want to put my shoes on and take a walk. They are. 

The Unapologetic. He just cannot say he is sorry. It's either he feels he is never wrong, or when he accepts he is wrong, he feels his wrongdoing is justified, or when he knows he is wrong and unjustified, he is simply too proud to express remorse. My problem with this kind of partner is that time and time again you're going to keep forgiving someone who hasn't even asked you for forgiveness. This happening over time can lead to resentment, it could lead to bitterness from so many unresolved issues. Worse yet, it could lead to unrest and ugly fights in the home, because time might come when you no longer want to forgive without being asked, you no longer want to feel like you're being walked over, you want him to take actually responsibility for his slip ups! And so no, I wouldnt want to spend the rest of my life with this type of man. As humans beings, no matter how much we love each other, arguments and misunderstandings are bound to happen. Forever is way to long to spend with someone who can't say "I'm sorry" when they hurt me. (Mind you, this also applies to females too ). 

The Unforgiving. This brother is even worse than the unapologetic. The unapologetic is simply unapologetic. In fact, more often than not he knows he is wrong but is just to proud too admit it, and that's not so impossible to live with. The unforgiving on the other hand, the words "I am sorry" mean nothing to him. Even when you go beyond saying the words and go further to SHOW that you are sorry and try to make things right, they just cannot accept your apology. These ones are deep and very dangerous. They are quick to keep malice and can comfortably do so for extended periods of time, even while sleeping on the same bed with you. You can talk and beg until your throat gets sore, they just wouldn't budge. Even in the most minor offenses they take the greatest offense and hold on tightly to their indignation! These one drain you emotionally. Nobody should have to put up with the unforgiving life partner. Life is way to short and wayyy to long to live in such unnecessary agony. (Just like the above, this applies to women too. Although being a Nigerian wife these days means that you have to forgive all sorts whether or whether'nt your forgiveness has been sort, so...)

The "Okay being Okay": This wouldn't be an absolute deal breaker but I pray I don't end up with him. The okay being okay is Unambitious. He has an okay job, he drives an okay car, he lives in an okay apartment and he is okay with that. Contentment is good but this kind of contentment can be near disastrous when he becomes a husband and a father. He sees no reason why you should strive to live in a better apartment, in a better part of town. He says things like "Children who go to inexpensive  schools still turn out ok so why should I spend so so and so amount on XYZ school?" when you want to put your kids in a competitive school. He considers things like travel and exposure as frivolous luxuries that one need not bother with. 
     My problem with such a man is that he rarely ever amounts to much. He doesn't aspire to greatness or wealth and so it just doesn't come to him! Even if such a man makes a fine husband, the children deserve more. Yes, even if I'm successful supermom who can give her kids the world, I want daddy to be superdad too. They deserve a father that WANTS to give them the best of everthing not just the basics. More importantly they deserve a father that inspires them, one that may not be wealthy but visibly aspires to have more. I don't want the "Okay being Okay" because my children deserve better. 

We're all different, different perceptions, different tolerance levels. The flaws I feel I can't handle are flaws that you may not even consider flaws, and vice versa. So tell me the flaws you'd walk away from in a heart beat. 


  1. i dont even know.... i love like that and tolerate just anything if i really love you as long as you dont hit me.

  2. i dont even know.... i love like that and tolerate just anything if i really love you as long as you dont hit me nor cheat on me to my knowledge. when u r married ud realise u can easily over look a lot of things like saying sorry. some men would say sorry per second and do same shit all over again. as a woman u need great shock absorber these days. nothing should get to u n when it does rise about it immediately.

    1. ...then ur good. U don't have any problem...

  3. A. The 'lie lie vampire' men as my mum calls them, these kind of men lie for a living. He would lie and tell more lies to cover it up,worse still is his refusal to accept when caught in a lie. Very pretentious beings.

    B. The emotionally damaged: this kind of man would never admit his feelings for you. His excuse is the emotional baggage of his past, so a babe lied to you and used you in the I pay for her sins?What if I were to return the favour,and decide to put you through stuffs simply because of what an ex did. Most times am like, dude it has happened,move the hell on.


    1. Lol at "lie lie vampire". True, they lie about everything. Cant stand such men..

  4. I had an unapologetic boyfriend. Always making me feel guilty

  5. Hmm very right the most annoying is th unforgivable ones. God help us

  6. arghhhhhhhhhhhh you kept writing 'to' instead of 'too'!!!!!

    1. Lol, children at IDP camps wld appreciate another English teacher...

    2. Savage!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Sasha bone oooo!

  7. i love this damn!!!
    i feel same and wouldn't want to manage any of them so help me God

  8. My own question is this.What do you do when they have those flaws and you can't leave?TNHW

    1. carry your cross and turn a side eye. or learn to do do me i do u. that way nobody hurts or the other person learns. some pple need to see a reflection of themselves to change

    2. I am too young to carry cross jare...I think I would stick to the do me I do you mentality...Thanks.TNHW

    3. Do me I do you is one of the fastest routes to self destruct. We must stay true to ourselves and hold our heads up all the time.
      I would hate somebody that doesn't communicate, find a way to talk about the flaws and see if your partner will address them. Somebody that loves you would definitely address them.

    4. Yes true... I talk a lot to my partner n he listens n changes for a day or two, but it's a gradual process I believe, so I keep talking , not nagging o... talking!!! That helps anyways.
      Truth is if a man loves u, he can change for u...

  9. Every man is a work in progress- u cannot have it all in one package! The good man u see today, had some flaws that he must have worked on to become better.
    There are good men out there, but the prayer n fasting u will do... no be here oooo! Lol...

  10. The ones that's talk too much, o boy you will end up being the topic on everyone s lips, even when you have done nothing wrong they spread lies about you.
    The boys that feel threatened by a woman 's success and will do everything to break you

    1. Hahahaha. Never thought of the talkative

    2. Yes ohhh,can't standmen who talk too much because more often than not,theyend up lieing about stuffs. maybel

  11. I'm of the opinion that Stingy people can kill. Especially the ones that are stingy to themselves #tufiakwa.

  12. Guys that feel the woman has all the work to build the relationship. They contribute little or no quota to making the relationship except for their assumed manly roles.

  13. Am currently with someone who.has issues forgiving,he knows and boast about it,and i wonder how he copes being like that,I care about him a lot that I justoverlook but there are times I.just can't deal biko. M

  14. I was with the "Okay being Okay" man, I left him because of that. Not to have any ambition is a very horrible thing. And the guy that talks too much or doesn't know when to be quiet is just as bad.

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.

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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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…


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 fiancΓ©? 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.
