I thought someone stole my writing Mojo until a deeper search revealed that the reasons my words are stuck is because at a subconscious level I keep thinking there is more to life than my inconsequential tirade now and then. I mean people are more concerned this season about Jega and the ongoing voters registration as well as Egypt’s revolution and the possibility of Nigeria doing same soon, and these are the things matured minds want to read about…right?
I’m equally bothered about the above issues, eh en...but every man with watin dey pain am…and one of the things disturbing me is the fact that I can’t seem to make female friends. I never gave this a thought before because I was quite comfortable being a guys girl…but one cool Saturday I scrolled through my phone, for what I can’t remember, and noticed that the only female friends (not hi, hello type of friends) are friends I’ve had since secondary school, just three of them…(who by the way are based in warri, thus far from me) and only one female friend I made when I relocated to Lagos in 2008. So 2008-2009-2010-2011…almost 4 yrs and I made only one female friend? Its eerie somehow, don’t you think?
It never bothered me till now…I mean I’m always hanging out…and the fact that I hang out with guys alone never registered in my head till that Saturday. So I’m forced to ask…what the heck is wrong with me? Have I been cold towards my fellow ladies, or have they been the one brushing me off…if so why? Watin I do them?
Long story short…last month I made up my mind to put in extra efforts to get female friends…my target was to get a friend every two months, thus by December I’ll have made six (6) friends. That journey started last month and so far all I’ve gotten were polite brush offs…azz in I just don’t gerrit…women are very difficult people I swear.Its hard to please them. I say hi…I compliment the two I have eyes on now…I even send an sms here and there, but do I get a favourable response? No… I’m I making progress? No…Are they taking this as seriously as I am? No…this is February and I haven’t made half a female friend not to talk of one…
‘have you paused to think for a moment that these chicks you want to make your friend, just doesn’t want to be friends with you? or can your ego not process that?’ asked iboze, one of my online sarcastic witch of a male friend.
Its crossed my mind…but so does it cross the minds of guys who woo girls that just don’t give them the time of the day, do they give up? No…most of the time don’t they still get the girls? YES…eh en..so shall I get them.
But in case you have tips on how to make the process faster…please I’m your home girl ooo, give me tips ooo. Truth be told I’ll rather be content with my online female friends… but sometimes…I need to hang out offline with chicks too…and have ladies night out or in, and go shopping...these I can’t do with my virtual friends and I can’t continue to hang out with guys only. I long for girly things sometimes too.
Help me tell these chicks to stop fronting for me o before I slap sense into their head
And I’ll appreciate any help I can get on how to go about achieving this goal. Thank you in advance....mwuah mwuah mwuah
