Words of thought

Good men are indeed all around us. We pass
them on the streets, engage them on social
media, enter same public transport with them
and the halls at work.
Some of us can’t see them because we don’t
know what a good man really looks like.
He usually isn’t flashy enough to turn our
heads. He might not wear that Amaechi or
Akpabio kind of suit or cruise a Bentley. He
might not have a “body like Vin Diesel with a
Will Smith face”.
But, as you grow older and start attending
church singles seminar, you’d realize it’s
better to find someone who’s got your back
than someone who turns your head.
A good man doesn’t agree wholeheartedly
with everything you say.
He doesn’t just tell you what you want to hear
and do the opposite. He has his own opinions
and you may clash, but he doesn’t have to
degrade you to prove he’s right.
He even admits at times to being wrong,
especially if you are willing to do the same.
A good man is not going to meet every item
on your checklist. He is human with frailties
and faults mixed in with all of his wonderful,
strong attributes. He needs your love and
respect.
He needs to feel that you do not live to “catch”
him doing something wrong so you can
declare, “Aha! I knew you were a dog!”
A good man doesn’t necessarily give you a
huge birthday or Valentine’s gift. He shows
his love in the ways that are comfortable to
him.
Don’t judge him by TV standards. No one lives
that fairy tale for real. You’ll miss out on your
own fairy tale by buying into the myth that
our men are no good.
