I was flipping through a Women’s Health recently (I admit it), and I noticed an interesting poll. Women cited the following as the most common breakup reasons:
He changed We weren’t compatible He cheated on me
When I was little, it drove me crazy when my parents supported “no” with “because I said so.” I always wanted a reason. I’m not sure if knowing why always helps, but perhaps if you know common reasons guys break up with girls, you’ll at least be able to see it coming. So, here are mine:
If you are thinking of a long-term catch, this is way too keen, too smothering. Men are pathologically allergic to all kinds of overly-romantic signals early on in a relationship. If you crack open the champers the first time you get a man back to your flat, what does this say about your cool, calm and collected levels? It screams either ‘I like to party!’ Or worse ‘Oh my God, I am getting married’. He will bolt.
First of all, every woman wants to be pampered, feel special, loved, respected, cherished, admired, adored and etc..by her man every once in awhile. NOTE GENTLEMEN!!! You have to know that sex does not only begin with stroking the body but importantly, it begins with stroking the mind. Once she has the right mind set, her body will willingly follow. The main key to this whole thing is for the man to provide the right atmosphere for the lady so that her mind cannot stop loving and caring for you the man completely.
When women first begin dating a new man they tend to make mistakes that will eventually cause the relationship to end. These mistakes can easily be avoided if women will take the time and make the effort to avoid them. Staying in a relationship with someone that you are not honest with, who you will cancel all of your plans for, who you expect to change at some future point in time, who you think is just saying one thing when he really means another, who has bad behavior that you keep excusing – is not a good idea.

This weekend, I had an intense personal experience with African traditional religion. Before you freak out, get some perspective.
Though I hold some views that would be considered radical in Ghana, in general, i’m a regular Ghanaian. I work. I take tro-tro. I dream of a better life. I look forward to teaching my children fante. Sometimes I go to church. But unlike many Ghanaians, when it comes to religion, I consider myself a truth seeker so I am open to learning about religions.
