    We really did go from marriage before sex to sex before marriage to sex ignore marriage. The moral standard of the society has seriously fallen and believe me when I say our own immediate fathers generation are to b blamed. They really fucked up things for us, maybe due to the sudden change of century (20th – 21st) and the way of life they couldn’t cope with. My point is, we were born into a century where reasons for every instruction goes a long way in ensuring adherence but they, our fathers continued their command method of discipline growing us in fear of them which lasted till about when we reached our elastic limit and couldn’t cope no more with their threats and punishments so majority went rogue.
    If only they sat us down and discussed heart to heart why premarital sex is wrong rather than imposing a no sex command, I think our generation would have turned out more sexually aware of implications and avoided as many mistakes.
    Well, its up to us to teach the next generation especially with as many mistakes we made or witnessed sexually.

    Thanks @aezolase. But since the talent is an already made technical-know-how, can I ever develop likeness for such activity I don’t have passion for?
    Because working really hard on what I naturally suck at sounds more of a bad idea like pouring water on rocks and expecting it to soften.
    So, is it possible I develop that passion for that talent I have but hate? And how?

    Why are the voters not coming out?
    Could it be that they have no voters card?
    Could it be that their beloved candidate didn’t make it through the primaries?
    Could it be that the available options of candidates to vote for are no different from the previous disappointment?
    Could it be that their votes does not really count?
    Could it be that they are scared of the violence and insecurities associated with polling units?
    Could it be that their desired candidate has little or no support so their singular vote might just be a drop of water in the desert?

    And which is advisable with reference to this post.
    Should base my career decisions on what I am good at?
    Should I base it on what I have the passion for?

    I buy the point of if you are really good at something then do it @Femi for what good is it to waste a talent? Even the bible has this story about that one man who wasted his talent and was punished. But more interesting is @aezolase point of talent and passion.
    Can one be a prodigy at something and not have interest in doing that thing?
    I think YES, since one can also be so passionate about something they are not so good at. But how tricky could it be? Is the universe really “whyning” us?
    Someone please buttress further.

    Long distance relationships are a blessing and a curse at the same time.
    Blessing with the fact that distance makes you miss him/her which is healthy as it subconsciously increase affection as you always long to see them and when y’all do see…no one takes the other for granted, at least not that soon.
    A curse with the fact that continuous missing takes too much toll on you like you said about staying up all night skyping and so many other sacrifices.
    Not seeing, touching, smelling, kissing your loved one for a prolonged period can be really tormenting… and with time, depends on discipline and the extent of commitment, one can get weary which leads me to ask without been too personal, why did your relationship with her unsuccessful?

    LWKMD.
    Children can be that funny when it comes to courtesy.
    How old is he/she?
    You should have been more specific with conditions around your gift like “make sure you buy the card oh or else no 100naira for you.” Only then would he have really done something wrong to reg return without your card but with his biscuit.
    After all, he dis run the errand even though unsuccessful.

    There are three problems here.
    First is the government, no matter how much the blame may be on them, it is well deserved. Politics affecting educational standards are made and unmade by the government so whatever is wrong with the education of now, can largely be traced back to the government of the day. The introduction and compulsion of some subjects would go a long way in equipping our teenagers on handiworks from that tender age.
    And leads to the next problem of “craftlessness.” Most youths are unwilling to learn trade and even when forced to by their parents, they display such level of nonchalance that nulls all effort.
    Lastly is the pride amongst our graduates. The feel too big for learn trade and then also feel too big for less lucrative jobs. They always looking for oil companies, politics and what have you that pays in millions instead of stooping low to a humble beginning.
    They prefer unemployment to low income and end up constituting nuisance on streets.

    BB Naija?
    Aside the money for the winner that gets into circulation, that show is really demeaning most especially morally.
    Like what exactly is the concept, having the everyday life of guys under house arrest on tape? I don’t get it. Not to talk of the scenes of soft porns uncensored. For Christ sake, we still have kids and teenagers who take TV personalities as role model. Now, who could we point as one among all? To me, and I guess I also speak for the gods when I say that show is point less. At the end, what is there to gain?
    The prize money again comes as answer but then again, what if that kinda money was invested in something more educational to motivate academic brilliance?
    A boy with straight As getting 10k as graduation prize with a very bleak future of unemployment seeing random guys getting millions for just living together on tape is very very very discouraging to hardwork.

    Oh, I never knew the matter wasn’t exclusive to the northern areas and as many that resides there. So, the issue is herdsmen versus southerners?

    I’m an introvert too, or should I say I used to be because now I’m neither here nor there…but more of the former. Truth be told, I sometimes get bored of my own company and yearn for others but there goes my personality saying NO. Now what I do in times like this, is to either revisit my hobbies or try out new ones.

    This looks like an issue of territoriality to me and it would be unfair to side the indigenes despite how deep rooted they are to the area.
    Why? because as long as they began to sell their land to strangers, they should also prepare for whatever change that comes with it.
    For example, when we first moved to Badagry it was still so rural that the eguns always do their “oro” every blessed night they sometimes even did it during the day time and there is no need of emphasizing how sacred that tradition is. But once they started selling lands and larger amount of foreigners moved in too, it began to reduce and now we have just night guards instead.
    My point is, if these herdsmen and which ever indigene supports them wants all their lands for grazing alone then why still sell it out to strangers only to now be walking around with weapons to harm that stranger for not allowing your cattles to graze in his bedroom?

    but funny how most pastors and religious dogs are quick to tag one an Antichrist for questioning beliefs especially the ones they, the pastors have no answer(s) to.

    Ofcourse not!
    You did nothing wrong in telling him the truth but you would be doing something wrong in forcing him to abide by it with the (if I may guess) “regular” visits.
    You’ve planted the seed and watered it enough, allow it grow and if peradventure it dies…the guilt off your conscience.
