So i read Original Mgbeke's latest blog which was very interesting. I'll summarise. She was with 3 of her male friends and one of them mentioned how pissed he was when he once asked a girlfriend to help him clean his bathroom and she said no. He shared the said bathroom with his brother. He also went further to say that it showed she wasn't domesticated and wife-able which was probably why she still wasn't married (he's engaged to someone else).
Apparently, to increase your wife material, forget Guinea brocade and lace, you have to get on fours and scrub his bathroom to your heart's content. Please read it here. Mgbeks said "Standing in a kitchen and looking cute while turning some fragrant stew in a pot is one matter. To clean a man’s bathroom is an entirely different matter" I could not agree more. Sometimes i wonder if guys realise that they are also "auditioning" for the role of husband, same as they expect women to audition. Unfortunately, we can't blame the men. Some of our sister's have made it a point to stoop down...literally to the whims of our dear brothers who in turn take it as their birth right to enjoy the dividends of 'the lordship'.
Don't get me wrong, if your hobby is cleaning and cooking, like, you see a broom and your spirit can not resist sweeping, then please sweep away but if you think doing that would hook you a man, then you are strictly on your own. Personally, if i find a deserving man who loves and respects me and all of that, i would oh so cater to him without being who i'm not. I really don't want to believe our men are this shallow though because women could easily become your slut/chef/laundry lady just to get you to put a ring on it. So when a girl does all these and she gets the ring, her real self comes out and guys start complaining that she's changed. Then again, i'm single so what do i know.
This whole thing reminds me of someone who dated this guy for about 11 years. I think she was 19 when they met and he was 30. She cooked and cleaned and when he was horny, he only needed to call and she would go flying to fulfill his every need. There's probably more to that story. He was her first and he finally broke up with her last year because he said his mom didn't approve. I blame the girl too for not ending things sooner. Mr. Man got married to a 26year old diva early this year. I wish i could dish more on this but my friend would kill me.
So there, if you like scrub the whole Lagos/Ibadan expressway, cook like you are competing to be the next Food Network champion, clean like you are the next Clean House Host, or practice all the Kama Sutra positions to perfection, babe, if he won't marry you, he won't.
If you are married please be honest. Did you play this "Cater to You" card to get hooked? You can use anonymous if you feel more comfortable but honest answers please so the rest of us can stop making mouth and join the band wagon lol.
P.S: Wait though, that's Madona on all fours. If she can do it, who am i to complain? *goes in search of scrubbing brush* #ikid
