5 Reasons He Might not Marry You


Obviously, poor hygiene and the inability to talk about anything besides your current Netflix season could explain your currently single status. However, if you shower regularly, can hold a conversation with a stranger and can smile occasionally, there are other factors influencing your dateless Friday nights. While you should never change who you are to get the approval of someone else, there are a couple tweaks to be made if your dating strategy sounds like one of these five:

Please leave a message

Being unavailable isn’t going to win you any points in the dating category. Being too busy to even go out on dates is one example, but don’t forget the others. Are you honestly emotionally ready to date? Accepting that your last relationship is over and that you are sure it’s time to date someone new is crucial before going out on a date. Also, it should go without saying, but if you aren’t physically present in possible dating situations, you aren’t going to meet anyone. Don’t hide out in your house and expect your prince to be the cable maintenance guy. Let friends invite you on blind dates; don’t bring a book to the coffee shop; and try sitting by yourself on the metro without headphones in.

It’s a ten!

Not that you want to lower your standards when it comes to dating, but include a healthy dose of reality when you make up “the list” — the mental (or maybe actual) tally of talents, perks and features you want your future beau to have. On this list, Mr. Perfect is actually perfect; intelligent, great with kids, highly educated, successful, witty, endearing, incredibly handsome, and happens to rival your love for Vietnamese food. While we’d all love to snag a perfect ten, it’s just not realistic. Choose characteristics that are truly important to your happiness. You may find you can be perfectly happy with someone who doesn’t like spring rolls and didn’t graduate from Cornell.

Playing by the rules

Again, don’t change who you are just to get a date; but following all sorts of rules isn’t going to get you one Friday night. Thinking he has to be the one to ask you out first, or waiting a minimum of exactly three hours and 27 minutes to send him a text isn’t helping you out in the dating world. This doesn’t mean you’ve got to do all the asking and door opening, but thinking you just have to sit pretty and wait to be swept off your feet means you could be waiting a very long time. Don’t be afraid to break your own rules once in a while; let yourself smile and buy the cute guy typing away on his laptop a coffee and see where things go.

Throwing vibes

You can’t see them all, but people send out some serious vibes in the dating world. A few of those vibes stop potential relationships right in their tracks. While flirting is a good way to let the curly-haired waiter know you are interested, also flirting with the table next to you and the busboy at the same time means Mr. Waiter isn’t going to even try to ask you out. Batting eyes at any guy you run into makes you come off as just a flirt, not someone who wants a relationship. Keep your flirty vibes in check and be sure you aren’t telling any potential suitors that you’d go out with just about anyone.

Table for one

Obviously, you don’t want to date someone who is selfish, materialistic and too busy to go out for an ice cream. But guess what? Neither do the guys. Just like you are looking for a guy who is smart, funny and kind, men aren’t looking for women who are rude, self-centered and ignorant. It’s sounds odd, but be the person you’d like to date. Chances are, if you are looking for someone educated, he’s going to be looking for the same thing in the girls he dates. Be the person you’d like to date to attract someone who is looking for similar qualities.

On top of these dating strategies, be sure to also add in a healthy dose of patience. Dating is half chemistry and half timing. Do what you can to be your best self and be ready to meet someone new — then see what happens.

NOUN admits 20,000, pledges quality education

 Open varsity admits 20,000, pledges quality education

The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), has said it has admitted more than 20,000 fresh undergraduate and postgraduate students across its 72 centres nationwide, promising to pursue quality assurance excellence through the National University Commission’s Benchmark for Academic Standards (BMAS).

The newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Abdalla Adamu, who took part in the matriculation ceremony at the institution’s Mushin Centre in Lagos at the weekend, said the initiative would be achieved by reviewing the university’s curricular and streamlining them with approved guidelines in every discipline. Adamu noted that it would take into consideration, new academic narratives that were more accessible through institutional sharing and collaboration around the globe.

Adamu added that the initiative would also introduce and enhance more student-based input on the study centres as well as decentralise examination processing to reduce incidences of missing results and others.

According to him, despite the challenges NOUN was facing, many of them highly exaggerated, it had not deterred young Nigerians who year for quality education from making the bold decision of making the institution their choice.

Introducing EKSUMarket.com: buying and selling made easier for students


Everyday, we have people around us who want to sell or buy what we want but getting across to them is very challenging. For example, so many students have come to me who wanted to sell one thing or the other especially, phones. After broadcasting on BBM, Whatsapp, etc they seem not to really get their buyers or sellers. They could have probably sold them on blogs but they can’t even afford the adverts. So, what is solution?

A student of Ekiti State University of the department of Economics by name Akomolafe Abraham came up with a stategy to help students starting with his school to get to their buyers and or sellers respectively in a convenient way.

Knowing that most people are using smart phones and laptop, they can easily make use of an online store to sell and buy. He came up with an online market called EKSUMraket.com

EKSUMARKET.COM solves the following challenges:
1. Challenges of sellers: they often have to paste posters around the school to advertise their products. But with EKSUMarket.com they’d just login, paste their adverts at the comfort of their hostel and expect calls from buyers.

2. FYBs can now cash in on their wares unlike before that most of them would have to pack them home or even give them out reluctantly.

3. Students don’t have to walk hostel to hostel to seek for vacancies. With eksumarket.com, login, search for hostels based on ur budget or preferred location.

4. Students can now sell anything they want to do away with.

5. Students don’t have to spend much to furnish their hostels. With eksumarket.com, they can always get stuffs very cheap.

6. Students don’t have to go to fayose market or other markets to get gadgets. Their would always be a student willing to sell.

7. Students no longer have to nurse the fear of selling their cherished gadgets. They’d always get an equivalent whenever they want, even at a cheaper price than they sold.

The site would soon be launch soon.
