Please I really want to find out what is wrong in a single lady living alone?
I started living alone wen I was 22yrs, got my first house rent from my mom, she was against the idea but she really didnt have a choice. I got job in ph before nysc (i was in my second semester of final yr and i was seriously going to look for a job and house from school) Now, i cant even imagine living with someone else apart from my future husband. It gets lonely at times and i get broke for a while after paying rent.....but its well worth it. imagine cooking wen u wanna cook, eating wen u wanna eat etc. wen i just started living alone, I noticed that some guys wld want to take advantage by always coming around uninvited and asking me wat i cooked, so i startd telling guys that i am squatting with my elder sister. the ones that already knew i stayed alone and still came around, i simply told dem i my younger siblings moved in with me, that solved my problems. so now i get few visitors (girls mostly). living alone has also thot me independence and management. there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. it also shows u how to manage freedom. I am 24 yrs old now by the way.
If u wish to stay alone dis golden rules should apply;
- Avoid bringing in several types and grades of men to your house(oga on top dem)
-Have good comm. with neigbhours
-Avoid late nights
then for your parents u have to make them see reasons
.......just tot of dis ur name'UKWUBUEGO' hope dis is not part of d plan
I'm single and I live alone. And I'm so enjoying it. I don't have To cook if I don't feel like cooking, cook whaTever I like, fart whenever and however I wanT it, walk around my apartmenT n.,aked, go out and come in as I deem fit, call the shot abouT who comes To my house or not.
BuT whenever my rent is due, I feel like moving back in wiTh my parents. I don't like the "paying of rent" parT biko.
AnoTher disadvanTage is you mighT noT be able to stay under anybody again, leT's say a man.
there's absolutely nothing wrong with a lady living alone, our parents would frown at it because during their time it was seen as a sign of decency on the part of the girl, that she wouldnt misbehave being with her parents, but times have changed, back then women hardly do professional jobs, but today a lady whose parents are in port-harcourt gets a job in lagos and probably has no close relative or even if there was one decides to live on her own, afterall when she was in the university the parents where not there to monitor her every move so why all the fretting at this later age?
what is important though is: be good, be you, never be a hypocrite.
There is absolutly nothing wrong with a single woman living alone like one other person mentioned that is just the conservative African view that might make you feel bad. Frankly i think that's freaking great it shows that you are independent and you are able to sustain yourself without the help of any body. I think that is very attractive.
To be frank with you there's no problem leaving alone.
Its just that from our African/conservative point of view,the bellief is that leaving alone,exposes you to all sorts as there won't be much hindrance, (e.g sleeping out,people sleeping over,cleanliness etc)
Whether its okay or not, is your choice sister,
