Jane Singleton

 

I’m a single Nigerian girl. Forget the fact that my command of Nigerian pidgin is shaky at best and I couldn’t find my way to my village to save my life; all that is by the way. I think… English is the only language I’m fluent in; it what we speak at home and what I speak with my friends. That doesn’t make me any less Nigerian; I love my country. It helps that it’s the only country I know.

As for being single, hmmm. that aspect is purely my fault o. Sure, I know lotsa guys with at least some of the traits I seek, but the thing is, I refuse to “manage” any of them. No way. As a girlfriend of mine recently said, “I’m waiting for my Mr. Right o, no one else will do.” I agree and will hold on for that one dude who can crack my code (no innuendo intended), who will understand me and all my weird (cute) ways.

And so I find myself single, not necessarily looking to mingle, but not left with much of a choice either. Sure, there are always guys hanging around, they have a sixth sense for unattached females and girls in stable relationships. Frankly, I find their attempts to impress highly entertaining. Choosing not to grant any of their more incriminating requests is the definition of being single.

The life of a singleton is similar to being let loose in a crowded, rowdy market. Schlepping from shop to shop looking for the perfect outfit. So many great possibilities, but always with one unforgivable shortcoming or other. I have never been a girly girl. This, coupled with the panic of a fast-approaching unwanted birthday, make for a very long, tiring shopping experience for me.

Good thing I don’t wear heels, then.

  1. Looks like you’re in a good place, but Pls don’t be pressured by the impending b’day. Sounds like you know what you want – never compromise, u may regret it.

    1. Hey…the birthday thing is just me complaining about “old age” and I recently found out the hard way that being alone is way better than compromise… Thanks! πŸ™‚

  2. How is it that this post is totally devoid of that which you are very well known for-erotic undertones? πŸ˜‰ Guess who I am and guess how i found you here,it’s hardly rocket science though. πŸ˜‰

  3. I did notice it,but judging by your standard, it is insignificant! And yeah, you know i have to have a loooot of free time to get myself to read your posts. ..tehehe!

  4. “I refuse to β€œmanage”” …absolutely no need to ‘manage’ or ‘settle’ for as long as one knows exactly what one is “… looking for the perfect…” tis okay even though obne feels “…being let loose in a crowded, rowdy market.”

    That specific ‘one’ surely exist.
