Well, I can’t define one – hence I looked up quotes or meanings from Google. I then chose the above one to grace my post. Sure I would love to have one and I bet I have one now.
A friend once asked us what were the qualities we would be looking for in a man. I told him I was going to write a post on that and we’ll see how it goes.
I wouldn’t write about the qualities I seek, I would write about those I have found. Coming from Africa, where the concepts are different, I couldn’t help be do a genuine post on the man I found – my gentleman.
Primo, my gentleman has opened my heart. I poured it out to him and he still loves me so.
My gentleman reproaches me with firmness and yet gentleness. He cheers me on joyfully and genuinely. He supports me wholeheartedly and is all encompassing. I don’t want to think anymore of what I went through back in Cameroon.
We do have our ‘fights’ though mostly friendly ones for we are both strong headed people. Yet they hardly survive a weekend or even a night and never been physical.
My man holds my hand and kisses me whenever and wherever. He comes back home to have dinner with me and talk with me. He says I am a good cook. This is a luxury where I come from and I am honored.
No offense meant, but some if not most men in Africa, are still under the ridiculous yoke of those customs and traditions which state that a woman’s place is at the back and bed.
I very much love how we are friends above all, and how we do talk about just anything and everything. We go places together and do lots of stuffs together. Wow, team mates we could say?
Yes, my gentleman helps me with the hair removal beneath my chin and this is a premier.
I sometimes wonder why I had to go through so much mess in my life before meeting him. Well, when I mentioned that to him, he said maybe if I didn’t go through that, we wouldn’t have met in the first place.
I don’t know if gentlewoman exists or what is deservedly for a gentleman – but I sure want to be that kind of a woman for him.
Maybe we could talk of A Fair Lady?
