I don’t know if it’s because I turned 24 that my non – existing love life seems to be the topic on the elders mouths lately, or if I have a sticker on my head saying ‘let’s speak about uncomfortable issues.’ Granted, all the elderly people in my town is very lovely and funny, from the lady that sits on the porch to the town drunkard, in some way they’ve all raised me. Like we say on the continent of Africa ‘it takes a village to raise a child.’
Contemplating on this subject of picking a husband, I came to a few conclusions. I think this can apply to females and males.
1. In this day and age, it is not difficult to find a guy. Everything is connected with Twitter, instagram, Facebook, Skype etc. Most people just need to upload a good looking picture and sure there would be an inbox waiting for them. Also, it seems that everyone seems to be good looking lately. So finding a good looking person is also not difficult. Let me just stop here and explain my theory on the ‘good looking phase’
I’ve noticed the younger you are, the more ‘looks’ in the opposite sex is important. The more we mature, ‘looks’ doesn’t play that big of a role, because we understand how life works ‘good looks will not look after the children when you are sick’ Other things become more important such as characteristics. And sometimes, if you are lucky, it is even easy to find someone with good characteristics. But let me explain where it gets difficult.
To make this easy, I will make an example of my own life. Say I have a guy that is good looking and have good characteristics and loves God and loves me, it’d be assumed that this is a great match. I’ve found this not to be true. See, in the Christian world, there are also different types of Christians. I realised I fall under the ‘crazy christians’ I believe in casting out demons, praying in tongues as I wash the dishes, praying over my cat, spiritual readings, spiritual cleansing, dreams, dream interpretation etc. Now all of that seems pretty normal, but I’m like that 24/7 in everything I do. Not because I’m trying to be like that, after GOd touched me, I’m just naturally like that. A week ago i was still doing Lbsc. I came home and a perfectly respectable guy asked me, what did you do today? That specific day we went up the mountain to go cast out spiritual authorities, the Venus god, the Khoi San gods, sea gods, dragon gods, we repented for the sins of our ancestors for worshipping other gods, we declared that God is God alone over the land. I see in the spiritual realm, and that can even get overwhelming for the christians. How do I explain to him that in a sentence with words? I’m actually smiling as I’m typing this article, it is just so funny in a serious way. Nonetheless, I told him exactly what we did, and it’s safe to say he won’t be asking me anymore about my days.
And yet, there are those people that would accept even the ‘crazy christian’ . (But that’s a story for another article)
My conclusion on this whole subject is, I’m going to have to marry an alien or remain like Paul. (I’m joking)
Tomorrow morning I’ll walk to the shop to buy bread at aunt TinA’s cafe where she’ll give me a carrot for free ‘because I need to eat my veggies, on my way back I’ll stop by uncle Koosie, to get the latest rugby scores and help him cut his hair, on my way back I’ll probably run into the town drunk, who always confesses his love to me, and swear by the 50cents I gave him, that if I said yes – he would marry me.
What more can a girl ask for? … judging by this article, a lot more. 🙂
