My Legacy Will Not Be A Man... by Bougie Girl Apparel
My legacy will not be a man. How can it possibly be? Not when there are villages to feed, children to clothe, and music to create. The thought of settling for the drudgery of a simple partnership holds no fascination for me much to the chagrin of my family and friends.
They tell me encouraging things such as:
"You are too amazing to stay single."
"Plenty of men are looking for someone like you"
"Why can't you just settle for a humdrum life with a man whom will take you granted and never acknowledge your contributions like I did?"
The problem isn't that I can't meet men. I meet plenty of men. Alas, many of them don't want to date me...they want to jump the fence of courtship altogether and walk me down the aisle after a short amount of time.
I prefer a leisurely courtship in which both parties get to know one another as they truly are, sans the unrealistic expectations and harmful projections.
