There Is A Weird Conversation On Nairaland About Village Girls Being Better Than City Girls

February 29, 2016
So, for as long as there have been “township” and “village” and especially with the advent of Nollywood, there’s been the belief that village girls are better than city girls.

Why would anyone care about who is ‘better’?

Why a comparison is even necessary is hella confusing but ok oh. According to a proponent on Nairaland, these are the reasons why they are better:

Attitude

Village ladies grow up with the right orientation and attitude that boost their moral values and norms this can melt the heart of every man of “goodwill”. Village ladies are brought up with a drilling knowledge of respect and attitude.

Fidelity

The city lifestyle is a wild one and most ladies in the city have been swept away by the tide. Some women find it difficult to deal with the sexual strength and capacity of their husband/BOO because they have been exposed to different sexual escapades. Ironically, even their fellow city men feel that their already explored sexuality might pose the possibility of marital infidelity. They feel more confident in marrying village ladies who — to an extent — can guarantee fidelity.

Submissive

Either by nature or nurture, men feel they are superior to women and like it when they get a lot of respect from women — a reason they hate any woman that will challenge their superiority. City girls have been so exposed to similar and equal life styles that can lead to tension in the home. Men know that village ladies pose no threat when it comes to class and level and feel more comfortable with that rather than engaging in a class tug of war from city ladies.

Homely

Village ladies have very homely qualities that make a man happy. They know it is their duties to do the dishes, laundry, cook, make the home and still take care of the children where necessary. City ladies however feel that the modern world in its unwritten law desire men to also help in the house chores.

Career

The issue of career is always a big problem to men. As much as every man love successful women, they dislike it when a woman’s job becomes her priority and he is relegated to the second position. The higher a woman goes, the more a man finds her unapproachable. Village ladies are very enterprising instead and know how to combine the two — her career and home.

Understanding

Village ladies are cool-headed and have learnt to tame their emotion so as to allow them understand their spouse. City ladies though educated and intelligent sometimes lack the basic sense required in understanding the mood and turmoil of a man and this can lead to tension when they cannot act appropriately. Every right thinking man would rather marry a village lady knowing that there is a telepathic understanding between the two of them.

Economical

Village ladies understand moderation and have learnt the skills to economize. City ladies find it difficult to deal with less than they have been exposed to and some can even raise hell if they do not get what they are used to. The humble upbringing of most village ladies equips them for any situation whether rain or shine. This is main reason most village ladies are not “GOLD DIGGERS”.

Hian!

Basically, this man is saying that “city women” are not wife material because they’ve been given excess freedom and education, so they have developed a huge ego and do not see men as important. Or because these city women live the city life, they’re not equipped to handle anything life throws at them. I say that is total bullshit! [zkk_poll post=21136 poll=content_block_standard_format_12] All images taken from If Tomorrow Never Comes.
