Good afternoon Zambian stories, I’m a woman in my late twenties and a university graduate, I’m in independent and I running my own small business. I’ve always had trouble dating and finding the right men to date and my mom has been my best friend so she knows my struggles, the last time I dated was four years ago and the relationship ended very badly so I gave up on love and relationships until some months ago when my mom introduced me to a man.
I was very upset with her because she knew I didn’t want anyone and that I was happy on my own but she asked me to give him a chance so I did. Months have gone by and I’m completely in love with this man, he treats me really well and i haven’t had any problems with him, I know it’s a little too early to tell where this is going but I’m happy.
My friends have been laughing at me that I couldn’t find a man on my own and that I had to let my mother find me a husband, they occasionally laugh at me and ask if I go to her to know how to keep a man since I’m very bad at it. I find their comments offensive and they keep making fun of me.
Is it wrong to let your parents choose a partner for you? It’s been almost a year and I’ve never been more happier.
