Adeniyi Ogunfowoke: 6 places you should never ‘toast’ a Nigerian girl

BRT passengers

Some Nigerian guys tend to toast (woo) any girl they are interested in without considering the time and place. Not minding the location and with so much confidence, they approach their targets and begin to run their mouths, spitting lines they have specially practiced for wooing girls. Oftentimes, the thinking of certain guys is that they may not meet the girl again. That’s true. However, you should be conscious of the places you intend to hit on a woman. Jumia Travel, the leading online booking agency identifies six places you should never toast a girl.

  1. Hospital

Even if she is Miss Nigeria, you should not toast a girl at the hospital. You don’t know her purpose at the hospital. You appear from nowhere to woo her. You are just disturbing her and wasting your time as she may not answer you.

  1. At work

She is very busy at work and you still want to collect her number or you want to ask her out? She will just ignore you and at the end of the whole episode, you will be embarrassed. Well, some girls will have pity on you and walk you out.

  1. Church/mosque

The church is a place to listen to the word of God and receive anointing. Same for the mosque. These places are not hubs for chasing women. But it is today. That doesn’t it make right.

  1. In danfo buses/BRT stations

Imagine in serious traffic (even when there is no traffic) inside one of those Lagos’s rickety danfos and the guy sitting beside is trying to get your attention. The girl will even be angrier that under such harrowing and uncomfortable situation you are toasting her.  What she just wants is to get home. You are a distraction. For BRT stations, you see a girl standing in a long queue, you want to woo her. That is a wrong time.

  1. Cinema hall

We all go to the cinema for different reasons. Some go there to search for potential lovers. But the cinema hall is a place where you to enjoy the movie you paid for and leave. So, enjoy your movie and when it is over you can go talk to whomever you are interested in outside the hall. Don’t do this immediately after the movie, though.

  1. Her father’s house

When Nigerian fathers see their daughters with men they think about all sorts of things like she has joined bad gang. Most of which are negative. Hence, quite a number of girls don’t like guys wooing them in front of their father’s house especially if they are meeting you for the first time.
