This afternoon after church, a friend of mine asked me, Babe are you going for that wedding? I replied, nah I’m not going; I don’t like attending weddings, that I’ll probably be on my bed that Saturday pressing my phone or watching a movie.
He was like you must go for the wedding oh, and I said why? What he said really shocked me. He said so you can meet a guy at the wedding. That if I don’t attend weddings, where am I going to meet a man from? How will I get married? I laughed it off but at the same time it was really surprising.
So I asked him, do people attend weddings to find/look for prospective partners? He said yes. I then asked him, then why haven’t I meet a guy at any of the weddings I have attended, he said it’s because I didn’t position myself rightly. I was like wow.
He said as a guy oh, guys attend weddings to look for wives, that if he’s talking with a lady at a wedding, the lady is supposed to know it’s because he has an interest in her. He then told me, you are not a secular girl, where else would you meet a guy if you don’t attend weddings?
Funny enough a lot of my friends have asked me this same question, will you attend the wedding; and I always give them the same answer, nah I’m not going. Infact when I told one I don’t like attending weddings, the look he gave me eh, it’s indescribable. He had this weird look, this look of what is wrong with you? When I tell any friend that I won’t be attending, they’ll be like, you must go. Any other plan you have for that day will not work, lol.
I always ask them; please can you tell me what I am going to do at the wedding? No one can give me any answer. Thinking about it now, I realize they’re all thinking the same way, go for the wedding so you can meet a guy.
Funny enough, I use to love weddings, I used to want to attend anyone I hear of; when I was much younger. But I realized that as I have grown older, I do not like attending weddings, especially weddings of people I do not know personally. Even the ones I know personally sef, it’s still a struggle. Moreover, our weddings are always too rowdy. I am of the personal opinion that weddings are meant to celebrate the couple not to look for a prospective partner, because this is an act of desperation. So this new meaning people give to it is surprising.
Anyway, what my friend told me has being on my mind. Is it a wedding I will meet Mr Right? Do people attend weddings to look/find a partner? Should I be attending every wedding, until I finally meet the one? Is attending a wedding akin to helping yourself meet someone; or what about just waiting till God brings the one? If you have met the one, where did you meet him/her? Am i wrong or weird not to like attending weddings?
Honestly I need you guys opinion, what do you think about this issue? I would really appreciate your comments, thank you.
