Just woke up from a nap and back to watching my one tree hill box set. I did start cleaning the house this morning but really it’s not my strong point and I just can’t be bothered. I’m one of those people who hates mess yet I would rather pay someone else to clean it up, bit like my life really…LOL
Last night even though the easiest option would have been takeaway and tv I decided to take my colleague up on his offer of a night out (he’d been asking for like 2 months and I always found an excuse not to go). Ghana men are something else, got to honeysuckle pub and all eyes were on me. Normally the “too known” in me would have thought it was because I looked hot (although I must say I wasn’t looking too bad…lol) but I knew this time they were looking at me like “why is this girl with this guy when there are perfectly good Ghanaian guys around”. Ususally when I see a local girl with an ex-pat I usually think the same thing. But this time being on the other side of the coin so to speak I kind of knew where these girls where coming from.
Even though this guy was merely a colleague he was the perfect gentleman. He paid for my drinks, asked me if I was hungry, asked me what I wanted to eat (not merely ordered and expected us to share), listened to me. I didn’t go into too much detail but gave him the footnotes of my relationships so far. A Ghanaian guy would have looked at how I was at fault but he said “they are the unlucky ones, you are beautiful and smart so don’t for once think that you are at fault”. I was made to feel like a lady and at the end of the night there was no expectations either. He dropped me off where my car was and we went out separate ways.
I know my faults and I’m not into the fairer complexion, but if I see a mixed race couple in future I tell you I will not think that it is all financial (even if it is). I have seen the other side even if it was for one night, and well even though there was no sexual attraction from my side, I say if it’s there for you girl…go for it.
