I am always encouraged to do what am about to do for the simple fact that one or some of the points you will read in this piece are capable of saving or changing lives.
I think once in a while it won’t be out of place to call our attention to the little things that we more often than not ignore but are actually the things that matter a lot.
So stay with me as I attempt to lay before you some salient points that constitute this little piece, My Two kobo Advice to the Guys.
I know this sounds strange but as strange as this may sound I have come to realization that some guys do not love themselves. For instance, tell me why a guy should wear a boxer for three days or four days without washing it?
Guy, chill, I’m not referring to the guys who cannot afford to buy many boxers at a time. I’m talking about guys who have at least three to four boxers. I can’t explain why a guy would wear same boxers for as long as three days before thinking whether to wear a new or not. Infact, I think there are guys who derive immense pleasure from punishing their briefs a.k.a boxers on their waists. I used to know of a guy who had only two boxers but he never wore a dirty boxer. If one boxer is on duty, the off duty boxer is thoroughly washed, sun dried and readied for another turn.
So if you are in the habit of wearing dirty boxers, forget the excuse you want to give me, o jare, you need to love yourself.
Another set of guys that need to show themselves some love are guys in the habit of “carrying” prostitute a.k.a Ashi. For some reasons, I firmly believe that guys who run to prostitutes for sexual pleasure and relief have fundamental image and self belief problems. If you like, you can ask prostitutes too, they believe certain things are not right with the guys who patronize them.
The last but not the least on this point will be guys who sleep with total strangers without protection. Are there such guys? Oh, yes and they are many too. I won’t say much on this only that I need to quickly add that if that’s your current practice, I’m not sure you love yourself.
GENUINELY FALL IN LOVE
Genuine love makes the heart healthy. You didn’t know? Ah, it does. You know what they say about an apple a day keeping you away from the doctor? Same thing applies to when you love for the right reasons and the lady loves you in return also for the right reasons. Bliss!
BEWARE OF I.O.U
I hear people say everybody owes even the World Bank. Well, that may be correct but that should not be the reason to engage in excessive I.O.Us, owing virtually every Mama Put or Oni bread in town. It is not good for your “rep” in your area or at work. If I.O.U is not managed well, before long, those women will stop calling you that fine boy and start referring to you as Oni Gbese. The surest way to manage I.O.U or Gbese is by cutting your cloth according to your material.
NEVER YOU FIGHT IN THE NAME OF A FOOTBALL CLUB
I shudder when guys fight in the name of a football club. Let me tell you one thing that will make you drop the habit of fighting because your club lost a match. The same club you are quick to fight for encourages their players to put a match whether won or lost behind them.
When they win they party to celebrate the win, when they lose, they party to forget the loss. So learn from that too.
NEVER RAPE A WOMAN
Never rape a woman. If she says NO, leave her alone. If you think her NO sounded like “try some more”, then try some more with talk, talk and more talk and never by force. Sex should be by consent and not by force.
And that is my two kobo advice to guys
