Should a woman ever make the first step, in love? What should you know?

Should a woman ever make the first step, in love? What should you know?

So should we let young Senegalese women believe that they can afford to declare their love to the chosen one? While on the other hand, Senegalese men have not yet evolved...

In Senegal, can a woman afford to declare her love to the chosen one? In this third millennium when women are calling for gender equality, taking such an initiative should be seen as normal. Unfortunately, this is not always the case...

Some Senegalese girls and women prefer to let the flame consume their hearts. Others dare to take the plunge. This is at each other's risk. Indeed, there are many men who harbor a blue fear of women. They prefer to stay in their shell when they are in love with a girl. Saying “I love you” to the girl of their dreams is quite a feat for them. Some people will prefer to launch coded messages that the recipients cannot always decipher. They must be filled with joy when they see the woman of their dream breaking the ice.

Men who are bold in love are unfortunately not a majority. Far from it, man is by nature proud. And the Senegalese is no exception to the rule. He has a dislike of anything that looks like easy, especially a girl. He actually has more consideration for the one who resists than for the one who throws herself at his feet. “Only a girl without education, an easy girl, dares to declare her love to the chosen one.” And to think that sometimes it is very young girls who make declarations of love to young people of their age. But also and more and more often to men who could be their father. However, if many young girls flirt, it is often for low monetary reasons.

Taking the lead is a risk for a girl. She's more likely to run into a wolf than a lamb. There are few men who will tell her the truth and not abuse her. Others are just waiting for her to disrespect her and say “I was never a requester; I remind you that it was you who hit on me.”
