We’re tired of hearing that you’re single to stupor. That’s why we’ve come up with tips to help you avoid commenting, “God, when?” under people’s couple posts in 2023. Here’s how to get into a relationship in 2023.

Ask your parents to set you up

If there’s one thing you should know, it’s that Nigerian parents know people of all ages and genders. And because they want grandchildren, they’ll be very happy to set you up with a potential partner. They’re already doing it behind your back anyway, so just give them the official go-ahead. 

Go outside oooo

I beg you in the name of everything you love, go out next year. Throughout 2022, you stayed in your house and remained single because your soulmate didn’t come knocking at your door. In 2023, leave your house. Even if it’s just to walk down your street. 

Try speed dating

I think speed dating is one of the best ways to find your soulmate. First of all, you’ll go on multiple dates in one day and setting, which is less stressful. Secondly, If you don’t feel the spark potential soulmates should feel in five minutes then the person isn’t meant for you. On to the next one.

Hang a sign outside your house 

Just like how people hang signs for work vacancies. Yours should say, “Serious relationship wanted”, with a list of criteria. Let people know how serious you are.

Enter other people’s relationships 

At least you’ll be entering a relationship. Just not yours. 

Steal someone’s partner 

Maybe your soulmate is currently dating somebody else. Steal people’s partners until you find the one meant for you. 

Be wicked 

From conversations I’ve read on Twitter TL, it looks like people love wickedness. That’s the only thing that explains why people are still falling in love with Igbo women and Yoruba men. Stop trying to be their peace and start showing them pepper, and they’ll commit to you. 

Post your pictures 

How do you expect anyone to ask you out when the last time you posted a picture of yourself was in 2015? We’re in 2023 please, people aren’t going to enter your DMs because the memes you post are funny. Do better. 

Be interesting to talk to 

Stop all that “wyd”, “lol”, and “have you eaten”  nonsense. You’re a grown adult, learn how to have proper conversations. If not people will keep blocking you and you’ll keep wondering why God doesn’t like you. Meanwhile, you’re the architect of your own problem.
