Men are fond of complaining that there no good girls left, and they are just interested in money.
You will never hear a bigger load of rubbish. Look around you. Who is getting dates? The chaste girl who loves church or the wild woman who is always half drunk and half dressed?
Even in marriage, the so-called good girl can’t hold her own the moment a ‘bad girl’ decides she wants her husband. Bad girls have men at their beck and a call. Men will to do anything for them.
Back in the Stone Age, the good girl probably had it all.
Praise songs were composed, poems written about her virtuous nature, her family was revered throughout the land and best of all, she got a wide selection of eligible men who came from all over the land to ask for her hand in marriage.
But that is no longer the case. The good girl can’t survive in the battlefield that love has become. She has no weapons, and neither does she know a thing about the art of war.
She has now become a doormat; the girl who loves and gives with all her heart and in the end gets nothing but empty promises, constant heartache and dirty laundry.
Naïve are the women who decide to be good, understanding and loyal wives who stand by their men no matter what. Such are the women who never ask for anything in return because they are just too humble and nice.
What they don’t know is that humble and nice pleases father-in-law but bores husbands to hell. Such women end up in tears when their man runs in pursuit of bad girls.
Being a bad girl, by the way, does mean you behave like soap opera villains who will do everything from plotting murder to stealing babies.
