Re: Is It Advisable For A Single Lady To Live Alone by Nobody: 5:27pm On Oct 15, 2016 There’s nothing wrong to live alone.. But if your parents are alive it’s better to live with them. As for me, I live alone due to circumstances beyond my control. And I love it. But if u have to move into your own space.. Make sure your job can pay the rent. Be disciplined with friends u invite over. .only invite your bf over… Any other male friend should meet up either at work environment or mall.. And try create transparency between u and your BF.. With time he will trust and believe no dick and Harry passes the night in your apartment. Everything in the process of a man saying yes I want to marry u, is all about trust and making sure you are not a Liability.. And also note, your BF shouldn’t move in with u. It’s not proper and he will take u for granted.. It’s either both of u end up getting married and he wants to take over the rent… Apart from that? Pls don’t allow it. Always have a first aid box at home with some necessary drugs like paracetamol, eyedrops, Ear Drops, cold and cattarh drug, Mentholatum, Izal. Then yes u are good to go. So my dear, go ahead if u desperately wish to. I hope these tips helps You have my blessings dear 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Izuoma Ibe Nigeria 10 Questions 37 Answers 5 Best Answers 684 Points View Profile Izuoma Ibe Added an answer on May 7, 2019 at 5:52 am Let me first of all stats that stereotyping has caused a lot of harm in our society. It is not Nigerian, African or Asian but it is a social abuse which is universal. Now to your question. Negative perceptions towards single ladies living outside their family even when the are gainfully employed is a social stigma which is instigated by the very believe that women will always depend on men to survive. Looking ahead, these men would not let go of their money without something in return. Therefore in this case, it is either someone is selling something and another is buying – you know what I mean. That is long held stereotype which is not fading away but fast becoming a way of life due to poverty which manifests in joblessness where one uses what he or she has to get what he or she wants or needs. It is a societal problem. Though among 10 singles living outside of their homes and working, 8 is likely to be percieved in this category (my personal observation), there are a few who are and would live out of this circle. In a nutshell, such stigma is misdirected and unjust. It can get better with the betterment of the society we live in. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Grace Amadi Graphic Designer 14 Questions 29 Answers 1 Best Answers 717 Points View Profile Best Answer Grace Amadi Graphic Designer Added an answer on May 6, 2019 at 9:52 pm I like this question. We ladies are attributed to either flirting or doing funny things with our lives when we stay alone. Some of us are forced to even go to university from home. But the reasons are not far fetched; ladies who lived before some of us lived a bad lifestyle. some also do the same. Though, being gainfully employed, in our jobs we accept men’s advances which may eventually lead to our shame in the likes of unwanted pregnancy, the men coming to our homes to ask for their money or gifts back as we moved out with other men out of greed. I think also that society tends to protect us, women. if its a man’s world, the men are our big brothers and fathers. They will always protect, caution and criticize us. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
