Give Women One of These Eight Things and They’ll Love You Forever

July 2, 2022

“What do women really want?”  is a question people have asked for ages. We’ve done the research, and here’s what Nigerian women have to say: 

Silence 

Believe it or not, women just want peace of mind. After work, after listening to our partners lie to us and our parents tell us what to do, we actually just want some peace and quiet. 

Multiple sources of free money

We don’t just want free money, we want free money from multiple sources. From our mouths to God’s ears.

A fat bank account 

Is this too much to ask for? The people with fat bank accounts, do they have two heads? Everyone who’s supposed to be involved in making this happen needs to fix up.

No men trouble 

From fathers and brothers to partners and random men on the street, we really just want ease, guys. 

To be naked 

We love being naked. Any chance we get to take our clothes off for comfort, we take it. Whether it’s taking off our wigs or bras, it has the same effect.

A vacation we didn’t pay for 

We want to wake up to a note that says, “Baby, here’s a ticket to Dubai, and some money to shop while you’re at it.” We know it’s not difficult to achieve. 

No periods 

Without pregnancy. Even if we have periods, why must it come with symptoms like cramps, acne, bloating and diarrhea? If there was a world without all of this, we’d take it. 

Free clothes

A wardrobe full of clothes we didn’t pay for would totally bang, especially in this economy. The way we’d strut? Out of this world.

Now that you know what women really want, here’s an article on some women’s wrongs we support.
