10 Things Nigerian Women Are Doing When They Say They Are Busy

January 25, 2022

When was the last time your woman told you she was busy? Was she specific? Did you wonder what exactly she was busy doing? We are here to help you with a list of things that might be taking up her time. 

1. Self care

Gorgeous girls make out time for self-care. This could include giving herself mini manicures and pedicures or taking a long bath in a tub of warm water and essential oils. Either way, it’s a lot of work and it takes time. 

2. Masturbating  

Masturbation is a great stress reliever. It also induces sleep faster than anything else. So sometimes, when your woman says she’s busy, she’s really just pleasing herself. No hard feelings. 

3. Hooking up with the girls 

No further comment on this. 

4. Watching serial killer documentaries 

Those documentaries are addictive and require foresight. She needs the space to be able to play detective along with the narrator. Texting or calling her will add to her stress. She will get back to you. 

5. Scrolling on Twitter 

A lot of the time, she may set out wanting to finish a task but ends up doomscrolling. It’s crazy how something could be so mindlessly time-consuming. It’s no one’s fault. If you want to blame anybody, blame Jack. Or is it Paraga?

6. Making Tiktok videos 

If you’ve spent time on Tiktok, you’d know how easy it is to be convinced into making your own videos. After hours of scrolling and scrolling, next thing you know, you are jumping in front of your camera mouthing lyrics you barely know. 

7. Eating 

Sometimes it’s just as simple as that. My girl is just eating to nourish her body and stay healthy despite the madness that is life. Kudos to her. 

8. Talking to their actual partners 

Maybe you think you’re her real partner, but you’re not. So when she says she’s busy, she’s probably just giving her time to the person that she wants to give it to. If that’s the case, I’m sending you hugs. 

9. Window shopping 

There are so many things to buy, but so little money to buy them with. For this reason, the girlies resort to window shopping. The advantage of this is that whenever they have the money, the choices become easier to make. 

10. Nothing

No jokes and that’s valid. You can solve a puzzle while you wait.
