#NowPlaying Naima K - Shayizandla

This morning on my way to work, was listening to Metro FM and they played a Naima K song which reminded me of this song that I fell in love with the first time I heard it. I think Naima is actually a GEM in the SA music industry, she's just one of those underrated talents. This song here, really does make me believe in love. Hope you enjoy it.

10 types of girls every guy dates before finding the one.

I know most of our fellow brothers will be happy about this post, since I did the "10 Guys" post last week, which was mostly for the ladies. Well guys this one is for you... ladies, you can also read through to find out what type of girl are you. 

1. DADDY's Girl 




This girl may be 25 or 30 years old, she still spends most of her free time with daddy. Not only does daddy play Minister of Finance, but he's also the first guy she calls when her car breaks down, her boss yells at her or even when she gets an extra ticket for a concert. Hol'up... isn't that supposed to be your role? 

2. The PARTY girl



This girl always knows where the party is. Not only that, but she has friends wherever you go, and they all have funny stories about that time she got wasted and made out with other people's boyfriends. Then, what do you know, you find her in a closet doing the same thing when she was supposed to be in a relationship with you. You try to dump her but she's too busy making out with that random guy to listen. 

Kwaaaaaaaa this is so me! 

3.  The STRAIGHT A student. 



This girl is super smart and it would be great to talk to her... if she ever had time to talk. She is involved in every kind of campus project / activities, whether it be for first years or post graduates, she's there. Oh, and most of all, she's more committed to her study group than she is to you. 

4. Miss JEALOUSY



So what did you really mean when you said "nice shirt" to that girl? Were you looking at her boobs? Are her boobs better than mine? Let me check your phone, did you take her numbers? Then you end things by telling her that you have a horrible terminal disease because you're scared of the repercussions lol.

5. GOSSIP girl



This girl can talk for daysss! She talks about her friends, her friend's friend, her friend's boyfriend and that guy's cousin. All of her stories seem to be about someone in a bad situation that she can pretend to empathize with while she secretly acts better than them. You break up with her after fantasizing about Miss JEALOUSY, who at least focused all her attention on you. 

6. Your mom's HOPEFUL DAUGHTER-IN-LAW



This girl and your mom get along like custard and jelly. She has your mom dropping hints about how it's time to settle down and she on the other hand is always talking about how awesome your mom is. But to be honest, your mom has more chemistry with this girl than you do. 

7. The ANXIETY case



This girl is worried and nervous about e-very-thing. When you go clubbing, she worries about her drink being spiked. When you're out ice-skating, she worries about breaking a leg. When you want to go on vacation, she is nervous about flying. So you book her in with a therapist or Mam Angie and say "Hasta la vista" baybay! 

8. The DRAMA QUEEN 



This girl is exciting and it's never boring to be around her. But soon you realize that it's exhausting to ride on her emotional roller coaster every day. Then you start missing the anxiety case, at least she was consistent. 

9. The TREND-SETTER



You are not sure if what she's wearing is a shirt or a dress, not sure what's happening with her hair or make-up, but you know whatever it is, it's right on trend. It's all fun and games until she starts throwing out some of your favourite clothes in an attempt to make you more edgier. So, you have to say goodbye. 

10. The BEAUTY QUEEN




This girl is so hot that you don't even believe that you're dating her. You feel like she's way out of your league. Your friends are envious and guy's heads turn when she walks into the room. It's pretty cool until you realize you don't have much to talk about since you have nothing in common. While you're in the middle of breaking up with her a guy in a BMW passes by and asks her out on a date. 

Fellas...which of these girls have you dated? And ladies, which one of these girls are you? Drop me a comment on the box below.
