Growing up, I was often told the story of a pretty girl who this man fell head over heels in love with and so he married her and whisked her away to his home for them to live happily ever after. That did not happen. Homeboy found out that she not only cannot boil water, but cannot clean, make a bed, wash, iron or hang a curtain. In short order he returned her to her mother’s house with the note “teach your daughter how to be a wife before you unleash you on society.” Ouch!
Many women lament that all that saturates their timelines and direct messengers are con men, thugs, neanderthals, hustlers, panty chasers, married men and bad boys. They claim to want to settle down with a nice guy but why then do nice guys get shafted more often than not?
