6 Nigerians Share How They Would Raise The Question Of Genotype

January 7, 2020

From all the congratulations we have had to say in recent times, it is obvious that many of us are getting married soon. In anticipation of all the adulting in front of us, one of the major issues we are going to face is the issue of genotype. These conversations can be awkward, so we decided to take all that awkwardness out of the way for you. We asked a couple of people how they would raise up the conversation of genotype. Here are some of the responses:

  1. Dodo says malaria is how he is going to ask…

You must have malaria ooo. You will then add that I don’t know why I am having this malaria again but they said AC/AA/AS don’t always come down with malaria. This is like the third time this year and it has not happened before. The person will be forced to say their genotype in defense.”

2. “What if you are in an accident?” – Alex the great.

Baby, do you have your blood group on your ID card? What if you are in an accident and you need a transfusion? Do you even know your genotype?

3. Ayoola says he has to ask on the first date so he knows if he is doing Mutual funds or Detty December.

I have to ask on the first date so I know whether the relationship is going to be as invested as mutual funds or we are doing Detty December.”

4. Iyanu says it’s not important to him because he is here for a good time and not a long time.

“I am AA, I don’t ask because let’s be honest, I don’t plan on building a future with you.”

5. Kay says that it can come up as a date idea for her.

What do you do for fun? Me, I enjoy long romantic walks to the lab to get tested.”

6. Chidera is coming out to ask you directly. Guns blazing. No holds barred. She doesn’t have time for games.

“There is no point sugarcoating it. I am just going to ask you plainly on the first interaction. You come up to me and say you like me, I respond with what’s your genotype?”

Which method do you prefer the most? Tell us why in the comment section.
