Why Ladies Get Hurt In Relationships

why ladies get hurt in relationships
 ladies get hurt in relationships

Ladies take relationships seriously due to their emotional nature. Right from puberty, when the female hormones kick in, they develop a longing for a relationship with a member of the opposite sex. This longing which is a need, forms part of a lady’s psychological makeup. Unfortunately, this makes them vulnerable to people who may take advantage of them. This post will discuss some reasons why ladies get hurt in relationships.

The female perspective on relationships

Women are emotional by nature, and this is a well-known fact. Most times, their emotions spill over somehow into every aspect of their lives, and relationships are no exception. Women value relationships and place much emphasis on them in a way members of the opposite sex might never understand. Communication, affection, and attention are essential to them.

Ladies tend to nurture and care for their partners intensively. Sometimes, they try to change certain things about their partner which they feel aren’t right. While this may be overdoing things, it’s just their way of showing care.

Ladies invest a lot of time and effort into relationships. They always want it to work out. And when their relationships are successful, they get a sense of fulfilment and accomplishment, which positively influences other aspects of their lives. So the bottom line is women take relationships seriously.

There’s a possibility that ladies get hurt more in some relationships types than others. This is because ladies put varying degrees of emotions into different relationship types. For instance, a lady would get hurt more by a breakup or divorce compared to losing a mere friend or acquaintance. But what relationship types are there?

why ladies get hurt in relationships

Relationship types

What’s a relationship? It’s any kind of connection between people, be it intimate, platonic, positive, or negative. There are four types of relationships:

1. Family relationships,
2. Friendships,
3. Acquaintanceships,
4. Romantic relationships.

Several in-between relationships exist too, for instance, the employer-employee relationship, otherwise known as the professional relationship or a teacher-student relationship. This post, however, focuses on relationships of the romantic kind.

Why ladies get hurt in relationships and the solution to the problem

1. Ladies don’t communicate well with their partners

Some ladies give a funny answer when asked if they usually tell their partners about what they want. They say: “But he should know what I want.” That’s not only impossible but unreasonable. Inadequate communication between partners has destroyed many relationships. While the men are straightforward from day one, the ladies tend to beat around the bush. What they forget is the poor man can’t read their minds. With inadequate communication, fights and quarrels are inevitable. Eventually, the relationship goes under, and naturally, the lady gets hurt.

The simple solution is communication, a lot of it. In a relationship, partners should be open with each other especially if they’re looking to settle down. Beating around the bush won’t help anybody. The earlier ladies begin opening up to their partners, the better for them.

2. Ladies expect a perfect man

No one is perfect. While everyone knows this, ladies tend to forget this fact whenever they’re in a relationship. They expect the man to be this and that. He should act like this, and he should do that. Half the time, their expectations are unrealistic. The irony is the ladies expecting a ‘perfect man’ are hardly perfect themselves. So, inevitably, the lady gets hurt.

Ladies should stop ‘creating the perfect man’ in their heads. Now, it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have their standards. A lady shouldn’t get into a relationship with every Tom, Dick, and Harry she meets, but please, life isn’t a fairytale. It’s no Cinderella. The earlier ladies stick to reality, the better.

3. Ladies put a lot of pressure on their men in relationships

Ladies generally want a lot of things. Most times, they’re super undecided. Today, they want to have this, and tomorrow they want to have that. To make matters worse, such women can’t do this by themselves. They turn their man into an ATM and put a lot of pressure on him. While some men try to manage, some quit immediately, leading to a breakup, and again, the lady gets hurt.

Dear ladies, you’re supposed to be a partner, helper, and asset to your man, not a liability. Your partner is not the answer to all your problems. Ladies should learn to handle things themselves.

4. Ladies get hurt in relationships because they make costly assumptions

Some ladies get into a relationship without clearly defining its purpose. When things turn out wrongly, they end up at the receiving end and get seriously hurt. I’ve heard a lady say: “I got into a relationship with him because I thought he wanted to marry me”.

Hello ladies. Stop thinking and stop assuming. Instead, define the purpose of the relationship. Is it just going to be a boyfriend-girlfriend thingy for dating sake, or are there actual plans to settle down eventually?
Asking the right questions helps a lady avoid unnecessary drama. From day one, the purpose of the relationship should be known and spelt out. This will help avoid stories that touch.

5. Ladies let themselves be human dumpsters

While courtesy demands that ladies don’t overreact to every action or inaction by their partners, she shouldn’t let herself be walked over. She should have a healthy level of self-respect and self-esteem. Unfortunately, some ladies appear to absorb every insult to their personality by an abusive person. If this continues over time, it could lead to other things apart from getting hurt in that relationship. They include mental disturbance, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc. Sometimes the ladies just lose it, and then a murder happens.

Solution? Ladies should stand up for themselves and refuse to be bullied. Then, as politely as possible, they should make it known to their partners that they won’t be talked down or walked over.

Relationships should be fun and exciting. Not the other way round. Relationships should have a purpose that should be spelt out. Finally, communication between partners helps a lot.

7 Tips For Choosing a Wedding Venue

Tips for choosing a wedding venue
Tips for choosing a wedding venue

Are you about to tie the knot with your partner? Congratulations! You’re about to experience one of the best days of your life. An event where you get to start a new journey with the love of your life is no small thing. So, every single detail matters. This post highlights 7 tips for choosing a wedding venue. Finding a place where the celebrations will go down is one detail that needs careful consideration.

Below are 7 Tips for choosing a wedding venue

1. Create a conditional budget

Your budget plays a part in determining the kind of venue you will use. If your budget is in six figures, you’ll probably want to use an extravagant hall. On the other hand, if your budget is something much lower, a park or garden might just do. It’s a conditional budget because it might have to stretch due to some costs popping up at the last minute. Still, nothing is wrong with spending on a venue you’re content with.

2. Decide on a location for the wedding before choosing a wedding venue

Defining where you want to get married helps you narrow down the long list of wedding venues available. Some couples prefer a destination wedding. If you’re one of them, selecting a specific region for the nuptials makes the venue search easier. Consider how far your guests will be willing to travel and how much it’ll cost them though.

3. Choose a wedding venue that can accommodate your guests comfortably

When choosing a venue for an event, the ‘size’ and ‘space’ factor comes up. On this one, you’ll need to consult your guest list. If you have an estimate of say 500 guests, then you have no business with a hall that sits 200 people. You should also consider how much space your venue has. It’s not just about the ambiance or decor. Your guests will definitely not trek to your wedding, at least most of them. They’ll come in their vehicles and they’ll need somewhere to park those vehicles. So try getting a venue suitable for both sitting and parking arrangements.

4. Choose a wedding venue befitting for you and your guests

You might wonder if this really counts. The truth is it does. I’m sure you’ll like your wedding to be a memorable event. The more special people feel at your wedding, the more memorable it’ll be. So know your guests. Choose a venue with the kind of arrangements that befit not only them but you too. After all, you’re the one they’ve come to celebrate with.

5. Choose an available wedding venue and book it

This is one thing to really look out for. Don’t you think it’ll be a disaster if on the D-day your venue is unavailable? You can book your wedding venue nine months or even a year early for the date. Just know that booking a venue well ahead of time is a sure way to avoid unnecessary disappointments.

6. Ask local wedding vendors for advice

At this point, you should have decided on where you want to get married. If you’re still struggling with finding a venue, there is no harm in asking local wedding vendors. They might know some great venues you might not have seen in your search. After all, they have first-hand experience working at local wedding venues.

7. You can google wedding venues

Personally, I think you should start your venue search online. You will definitely get better results than moving from street to street looking for a venue. Google will easily dig up hard-to-find wedding venues. This helps a lot especially if you’re planning a destination wedding. Let’s say you’re looking for a wedding venue in Lagos. There’s no need to type long sentences in the search bar. A simple ‘Lagos wedding venue’ will do. It’s sure to turn up a host of weddings venues in Lagos and from there you can make your choice.

While pretty much every aspect of a wedding is optional, a venue isn’t. You could decide to forego a wedding dress or even the cake but you can’t do away with a venue. There are many options to choose from when it comes to selecting a venue and it could be quite stressful. However, the tips mentioned above should help you in choosing a wedding venue.

5 Important Red Flags in Relationships

5 important red flags in relationships

I’ll share with you 5 important red flags in relationships. When you see them… run! If you are in relationship that you intend for it to lead to marriage, there is a lot to learn you will agree. Everything may look good but there is bound to be a sign you are not comfortable with in your chosen partner. While some of these signs are normal and bearable as no one is entirely perfect, some signs are total red flags in relationships.

5 important red flags in relationships

The idea of marriage is universally accepted and it is what a lot of young people look forward to. Statistics estimate that well over 100,000 weddings happen worldwide, daily. This is a huge number and describes the rate at which people get into relationships.

Below are 5 important red flags in relationships

1. They want more than they are willing to give

You know, it’s a different thing when they want from you and are willing to give back but it will be a bad thing when it is not reciprocated. This scenario is often accompanied with unfair manipulations and unreserved domination. This actually paints a picture of greed and selfishness. Yes, it’s time to run.

2. You feel trapped in the relationship

Trapped in marriage

It’s obvious you both want different things in life and you can’t seem to be your true self around them. You shouldn’t feel trapped with someone you will be living the rest of your life with even though you feel emotionally attached. The emotions are never enough. Recognize the fact that you are not yet married and as such you are at liberty to pull out now; especially when you know for sure that it’s not going to work. Hi there, don’t postpone the evil days.

3. Looks like you are both in a competition

This is a huge no-no for me. Both parties are expected to be on the same page and same side, working towards a common goal. It should not be a case of one party proving to be of higher intelligent quotient or value compared to the other. If this is the case, there is danger looming ahead as toxic ways to stay ahead will begin to creep in to the minds of both parties. And then secrecy becomes the order of the day.

4. Violence and anger flying everywhere in the relationship

It’s okay to express anger once in a while so long as it is well managed. When it gets too frequent and results in violence, it has obviously become a danger sign and a sign of emotional immaturity.
No one likes to hang around a violent friend; It tends to spur terrible emotions in you. They are mean to other people, you get scared, you can’t express yourself, you can’t communicate effectively, it’s just a mess! In marriage, this could lead to homicide, divorce or even suicide. This is someone you’ll get to spend the rest of your life with, choose wisely.

5. Zero trust in your relationship is a red flag

Yes, your partner has his or her right to privacy. However, if their integrity has been constantly questioned and they tend to hide important things and let you find out for yourself, something is wrong somewhere. Trust needs to happen for a long relationship as marriage to last.

Now listen, just in case you notice any of these red flags in relationships, what you should do is simple. To avoid changing partners like undergarments especially since no one is entirely perfect; Invest a lot in communicating and expressing your fears in a mature way with your partner. If you go through this process and changes don’t get effected from them, take the next exit door… and don’t look back.

Top 5 Lies Used by Romance Scam Artists

Top 5 lies used by romance scam artists
Top 5 lies used by romance scam artists

In this post, I will tell you top 5 lies used by romance scam artists. Romance scam has been around for a while. Although romance scam is more popular on the internet nowadays, it’s beginning is hard to trace.

As far back as year 2000 in a novel titled ‘The Brethren‘, John Grisham wrote a fiction about romance scam. The mode by which the romance scam artists operated in that book was by exchanging hand written letters with their victims. You can imagine how difficult it would be to spot a romance scam in such situation.

Nowadays with the ubiquity of smart phones, personal computers, etc, it is not very difficult to confirm identities of people you are interacting with. This is because these gadgets usually have voice and video call capabilities. Notwithstanding the availability of these advanced technological features, romance scam artists have refused to give up on their niche. In case you are wondering what I meant by ‘their niche’, let me briefly explain.

Romance scam niche

Their niche is simply ‘love’. Romance scam artists realize that people need love or affection in other words. love is one of the basic human needs. You can read more about this in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs

Now back to the topic. Instead of romance scam artists to be deterred by these technological advances, they have simply upgraded their tactics. They do this by telling you lies that would eventually allow them to evade disclosure of their identities my means of voice calls and video calls.

Romance scam

Note that some romance scam artists would actually speak to you through voice call or video call. These sorts of romance scam artists however, are a different breed popularly known as gold diggers. Gold diggers are advanced scam artists so when dealing with one you have to be extra vigilant. The good news is that the top 5 lies I am going to reveal to you are usually used by many scam artists regardless of their breed.

Below are top 5 lies used by romance scam artists:

1. I want to marry someone in your country so I can relocate there

This lie is usually directed at gullible victims. Usually the romance scam artists would use a picture of a good looking lady or man as their profile picture and make write the lie in their profile. The unsuspecting victim gets carried away by the pic and eventually parts with his/her money as travel expenses for the fake bride or groom.

2. I am looking for a relationship that will lead to marriage

This is a very common lie used by romance scam artists in their profiles on ‘social media platforms’. You might think that it would be difficult to spot this lie because a genuine person might say the same thing as well. However, romance scam artists who use this lie are not usually sophisticated and your giveaway is the ‘social media platform’. Think! Why would someone who is looking for a serious relationship that would lead to marriage make such assertion on a social media platform? The truth is that genuine people would rather make such statements on dating platforms.

Unfortunately many of these un-sophisticated scam artists can’t afford dating sites subscriptions so they utilize free social media platforms hoping to scam naive victims. Another thing is that many of them frequently get kicked out of dating sites for suspicious scam activities. This is because dating sites don’t like romance scam artists because they are bad for their businesses. As a result, dating sites often have several measures in place to weed out suspicious users from their platforms.

3. I am a military officer

These lie is usually used by romance scam artists who do not intend to speak to you either through voice or video call. By telling you this lie from the onset, they would always have an excuse not to be able to make a video call. Such later excuse could be ‘I am at a military base where video calls are forbidden and I am only able to chat with you on a low key’. Soon in the course of your usual chats, it won’t be long before you are required to help them with some money because things are kind of hard where they are. They would often promise to pay you back soon as they come home from their military deployment.

4. I lost my job due to Covid-19

This lie is usually a pretext for imminent financial assistance from the victim. Now you might be thinking: that’s a shallow lie and I would be able to spot it from a mile away. The truth is that it’s not usually that simple when this lie is coming from what seems to be a gorgeous female. Many male victims usually buy this lie and end up parting with their money at the end. So when you hear this from someone you just met online, be vigilant and hold tight to your dear wallet. There is a high chance that you are dealing with a scam artist and it’s even worse if this lie came from a gold digger.

5. I am a bitcoin trader or expert

This lie is usually a pretext for imminent invitation for investment and it is one you should be very vigilant about. It is usually used by advanced scam artists like gold diggers. Eventually after gaining your trust, the scam artist would invite you to invest in cryptocurrency. And of course, don’t expect any returns on the investment. A seasoned romance scam artist might even give you some returns first and then ask you to invest a bigger amount.

Conclusion

One way to figure out whether you are dealing with a romance scam artist is to insist on talking to the person vide video call. If they persistently evade calls, then chances are you are dealing with a romance scam artist. Once again, hold tight to your dear wallet.

Internet dating

If however, you are able to talk to them on video call, it still doesn’t eliminate the possibility that you might be dealing with a gold digger. It would be up to you to really exercise good judgment to avoid stories that touch. One safety rule is to always be reluctant to part with your hard earned money when seeking a relationship.

Now that you know the top 5 lies used by romance scam artists, don’t be a victim! For tips on how to protect your Online activity from cybercrime, see this post.
