Finding that one true love is now a mirage for most young adults as it seems the current breed of youth are not in for the kill. All hope seem lost as each day seems bleak from what seems like an unending charade of deceit, lies and heartbreaks. Most young people are claiming there is a tag of war in today’s relationships.
Ever since I started talking and discussing relationships with young people, I continue to see the trend in the narrative. The picture currently looks dark, just like Fifty Shades Darker. Casting my mind to that particular movie, the second edition of Fifty Shades of Grey, it starts on a good note and ends on a bad one. That’s what most of today’s relationships are like. Almost every young person today keeps venting their frustrations and disappointments for one another, mostly, without any justifiable reasons.
I am not a relationship expert so permit me to revisit some wisdom from Steve Harvey’s book, “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man”. In the book, he describes certain qualities of both a male and female keepers. Keeper here means a marriage material. The book states how a man who genuinely loves will profess, protect and provide for his woman. The woman who is a keeper is also not necessary one who is perfect but one who is kind, patient, and not full of drama. According to the book, both parties must communicate and ask the deeper questions like; “Do you have children?”, “Will your family accept me?”, “How is your finances?”, “Are you in for the long term or for the short term?”. These questions will help you solidify your basis for accepting or refusing to date or marry someone.
