So your friend has tried to hook you up with a friend of her friend or you have met a couple of nice guys at different events, but none of them seems to have made your heart skip a beat. We have all looked for love in different places. If we had a chance to do a survey to find out where some of us have found love, some of the answers would range from the church to a wedding or even at a friend’s house. These seem to be the normal places where we could find love but I just wonder – would you be willing to look into the option of looking for love on an online dating site? “Hmmmm”, you would say, “that is such a novelty in this part of the world.” If you ask me, I think one of the reasons why we might be a tad bit hesitant to explore that option is because not every one wants to say, “Oh, I met my husband on an online dating site!” These are just my thoughts, some of you might probably disagree. It just seems to me that the typical African family members would probably have a fit to know that you found a potential ‘husband’ on an online dating site.
I have actually found that we do have some Nigerian online dating sites. I would like to know though how many people have had fruitful long-lasting relationships or even marriages from these liaisons.
You might make a friend or two but the thought of it seems quite spooky though – you wonder, what kind of person would the guy online be? Would he actually be who he claims to be? Or would he be a psycho or some guy with a shady life? Is it actually possible to meet some nice and decent guy on an online dating site who you will eventually walk down the aisle and live a good life with.
Sistas, what do you think? Would you be willing to broaden your horizons and look for love on an online dating site? Let’s chat…
