Girls want to control the man in their life. Grown women know that if he is truly hers, he doesn’t need controlling. Girls check you for not calling them. Grown women are too busy to realize you had not. Girls are afraid to be alone. Grown women revel in using it as a time for personal growth. Girls ignore the good guys. Grown women ignore the bad guys. Girls take you to the house. Grown women make you want to come home. Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans. Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits. Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man. Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man. Girls try to monopolize all their man's time (i.e., do not want him hanging with his friends). Grown women realize that a little bit of space makes the 'together time' even more special-and goes to kick it with her own friends. Girls think a guy crying is weak. Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue. Girls want to be spoiled and 'tell' their man so. Grown women 'show' him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate without fear of losing his 'manhood'. Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it. Grown women know that was just one man. Girls fall in love and chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all 'signs'. Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, do not always love you back-and move on, without bitterness. Written by Danjuma Iliya.
