It is true that every woman has got expectations from her man. She desires her ideal man to possess some sterling qualities, behave in a very decent manner and have the financial wherewithal to take care of her.
Hope Samson spoke with a cross section of women folk on this subject matter. Mrs. Charity Maduka has been married for 19 years.
She is not interested in whether the man is tall or short, black or white, handsome or not, what matters to her is a man with genuine love, “I want love from my man because love covers multitude of sin.
If love exists, he will easily forgive and not raise his hands to beat me or be aggressive,” she said. She added; “I also want a man that can endure, patient, gentle, easy going and caring.
My man should be able to go the extra mile in helping out with the chores at home. He should be able to take me as his better half; he should be there for me always and help out with the house chores.”
But Mrs. Becky Uwani, with 22 years marital experience said her ideal man must have some qualities that stand him out from others, “I want a man that is tall, dark in complexion and handsome. He should be a man that assists in house duties and allows me rest on his chest.”
For Miss. Bisola Adelanwa, currently in a relationship, her ideal man can be of any complexion but she is quick to add that her man must be responsible in all ramifications, “I like a tall lanky, dark man.
I think I can go with any complexion. I like a responsible man that has a good dress sense, not flashy but simple and casual. “I respect a man that is hard working and not dependent on his salary.
He should have other means of generating income to sustain himself and family. “My man should be able to provide for me even without demanding for it. I get upset when a man makes me demand, he should be observant so as to know when I need things instead of expecting me to make demands all the times, “she said.
Priscillia Joseph is not interested in height, complexion or a good-looking man. All she’s after is that the man must be educated and honest. He words: “Men nowadays are bloody liars and it is very hard to find an honest man.
Since most men are not honest, every woman has now devised a way of getting money from her husband if she really wants with her woman power.” Margaret Okere, an undergraduate said she wants a God-fearing and caring man.
She believes that that once the man is caring and showers her with loves she is fine. “A man can’t buy me with his money; he must not use his money to care for me. I feel he is trying to buy my love when he uses his money on me.
Calling to ask how I feel and if I have eaten is enough for me to know that he cares for me. Even if he can’t call, a flash is enough for me to know that he thinks of me daily.” Marvis Ogbeni, currently in a relationship said her man must be God-fearing.
“A God-fearing man will make sure his spouse is comfortable on every side and would not want to hurt her because of the love of God that dwells in him. “I am not moved by the outward appearance of a man, whether, tall or short, fair or black complexioned, rich or poor, ugly or handsome.
I look for the inner qualities which makes a man responsible,” she said. She equally expects her man to have a listening ear and take her as a real woman, “A man that can protect me especially from a troublesome family or mother in-law, a man of understanding mostly when it comes to the areas where I am weak and willing to assist me, is my ideal man.”
On her part, Helen Enebele said: “I just need a man with little money that will love me because there can’t be love without money. I want a man with money and love at the same time and I don’t think love can go without money.”
