10 simple rules for dating my
They don’t say anything that we girls don’t already know (but always manage to ignore), but now that I am dating again and looking at my past experiences, I’ve put some rules together which I hope will stop history from repeating itself. Attractiveness – I used to think that a guy that was less attractive of me would appreciate me and treat me accordingly. What happens is that when they get you, they start having ideas above their station and think if they got you, they can get any girl. This isn’t to say that you should hold out for a Boris Kodjoe lookalike, I mean that you know your worth don’t go below that level. In Essex, there is a phrase called Ladettes, looks like a lady but can fight like a guy.A guy who is just as attractive as you are is comfortable in his own skin and so will not always be searching for more. Be yourself – we say we want a guy who takes us for who we are, but then we meet a guy and somehow mould ourselves into a ‘perfect girlfriend’, then when our guard is dropped and the walls start to come down, the guy then say’s “you’ve changed”. I could be described as one to some extent, depending on the situation.So I’ll give it a go as it has been almost a year since my last disastrous dating experience, maybe he can redeem my faith in Ghanaian men.Having been home for a while, and with time on my hands, I have been reading some of these self-help books, like the Steve Harvey book ‘think like a man’ and ‘he’s just not that into you’.This guy, however seems to be the exception to this rule, he’s never travelled further than the west coast, he is a little bit of a hustler.But he has a job, he is kind, and although I was hoping for an older millionaire, the main thing is he can pay his bills and he is coming across as a nice guy.
You’ve not even met one of his friends, and you only go out on particular days and he never invites you to any functions.That is, to share my whole experience of life as a British girl in Ghana.After resigning myself to the fact that I will not get anyone who can handle me, I’ve started dating again.I’m sure, if nothing else, it will be interesting, and more food for my blog.
