Match making/ marriage!

Is it just me or do other people get annoyed when people you barely know try to match make you. Like do you know how I get when I’m happy, sad, emotional? No. You might think you do but you don’t. Like yeah, we might talk time to time but do you even know where I work and what I study? Negative. Do you know what I do on a day to day basis? No. Do you know my bad habits and good traits. Most likely not. Do you know the things I most love and my pet hates. Nope.

Do you even know what I’m looking for in a spouse. Definitely not. Do you know what traits I like and dislike in a person? Nup.

I understand getting married is half our deen, no denying it is a beautiful thing.  But marriage should not be the end goal in life. Doesn’t concern you why I’m ‘still’ single. Just like why you’re still married doesn’t concern me. And do you even know if I’m ready? Hell no, cause I don’t even know if I’m ready myself.

With all do respect, I get it, some people ask you from the goodness of their heart. And that’s cool. But concentrate on your own life, please. And if I say no once, then once should be enough. Don’t get pushy.

And then people have the audacity to turn around and say ‘don’t be so picky’. Of course I’m going to be reasonably picky, I’m going to have to spend the rest of my life with this person. Like damn, I can’t spend a whole day with one person without getting sick of them. That’s just how I am. And if you knew me well enough, you would know that already. #funfact

People come to me saying this person has a degree or has his own house and is rich. Good for him. If you knew me well enough, you would know that those things don’t interest me. I am not a materialistic woman. I don’t care if you’re broke financially. Sounds corny, but you are poor if all you have is money and no heart. Like the Lebos say, beat it leh. Lmao that’s me saying bugger off in the nicest possible way.

So if you’re one of those people who meet someone and instantly think of match making, maybe you should rethink what you’re about to say and who to. If you’re happily married, good. I’m happy for you. So be happy for me, as for now, I’m happily single.

In conclusion, I am a woman of many personalities and moods. So if you’re not my mother, sister, grandmother, close cousin, best friend, and you don’t interact with me on a daily basis, then you should probably steer clear from trying to hook a sister up, unless I personally ask you to do so.
