On The Prowl! Husband Wanted Urgently!…

Black couples

Tess sifted through dozens of photographs of possible date matches. It was a surprise to discover an entire World of supposed eligible bachelors out there.

Putting up her own profile was a task she hadn’t expected to be that demanding. Her attempt to make a headline grabber, the right smile, the right amount of information was not as simple as she had thought.

The increased pings of her messenger for her new dating account, increased her excited nerves even though she still had trepidation about the whole thing, especially with the list of do’s and don’ts Kate had mentioned to her.

It was almost beginning to sound like an espionage escapade.

”Make sure you have a pepper spray handy!”

”Set up a separate email account.”

”Don’t give out your address or house number.”

If need be, invest in a stun gun!” ”What? I don’t want to go shooting anyone!” She had shrieked.

”Only meet them at a public place.”

”Use spiked drink detector nail polish, so you don’t find yourself suddenly floating along with all his requests.”

”Don’t allow kisses on the first date.”

”No going to apartments for a night cafe etc, etc.”

”Make eye contacts as you talk to him.” ”If they are shifty, don’t trust him!”

Blah, yadda, blah, blah..

Whats a girl’s to do when she needs to do to find her prince in these tough times, she thought to herself?

These days, the competition was stiffer.

The good guys were all grabbed and even a lot of very delicious looking ones were into other dudes.

She still recalled her utmost disappointment when she had moved in and met the very polite handsome Latino hunk of a male specimen living downstairs, Steve; he was equally taken by another interesting looking bloke!

This one doesn’t look so bad, she mused to herself as she stared at the face on her laptop. He had such a sincere, earnest, open look and not too bad looking as well. His bio also read well.

”Nothing ventured, nothing gained”, she muttered to herself as she clicked the button to initiate a chat.

”I cannot afford to live through the debacle of another uncoupled birthday with my folks.”

”I’d rather buy a ticket to Mexico than go through that embarrassing episode again.”

How could Mama invite Deaconess Elfrida’s son, Humphrey to pair up with me?

He is such a sanctimonious and pompous ass!

Auntie Virginia had kept rattling on and on in her persnickety high-pitched voice on ”Tips of how to catch a guy.” A most mortifying moment.

”Time for hair touch-up girl”, She thought, as she idly fingered her locks.

  2. “The good guys were all grabbed and even a lot of very delicious looking ones were into other dudes.” Tell me about it, I usually use this analogy. There are 5 men in the world, 2 are guy, one is bi-sexual, one is married and the other is not sure and wants to play the game. Welcome to the age of dating women of this generation.

    • I am made to understand that it is tough. Hmm! I am glad that I didn’t have to face this. You know only 15 years ago, I had no less than 5 suitors (arranged marriage) bidding for my hand at the same time. Now it’s all gone to the winds :/


      • Remember your culture is geared towards the traditional form of marriage in relation to strong influence by family. However, in other western societies most times, the individual make their decision then inform theit family. Apart from church setting, the process of marriage (dating, courtship etc) has changed over the years.Shoot, it has changed even in church. However, I am glad that men are more open about their sexuality because it saves me from waiting my time. You are gay, bisexual or a player good on you, do you but you are not for me.

      • It has really changed and I hate to say this, but not for the better. I like your stance. There is no point wasting one’s precious time on something that is not going anywhere and unsuitable to the person’s taste.


      • I do agree with you about “not for the better” conclusion. It is sad. Yep, I am young but some people say I have old school mentality. I value good companionship, anything less has no bearing for me.

  5. Is there really such a thing as spiked drink detector nail polish? If not, there should be and very imaginative of you to think it up…my Tess puts an awful lot of pressure on herself…funny how that will go away when she gets older! You are a wonderful storyteller…:-)

  9. You are very good at detailing the scene so we can visualize it while also keeping the dialogue in her head or with someone else going at the same time. Keep going with your fiction writing. I think you have a very promising future.

  11. Spiked drink detector nail polish, is that a real thing? It certainly should be. I think you’re on to something there. If it is, I’d like to know where to get it. I have set up my online profile now to find the guts and nerves to actually follow through and meet with people! UGH, dating!!!!
