In a recent chat with Ediale Kingsley, Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji talked about romance and why she is still not married at age 35.
See excerpts below:
Why are you still single?
If I get married, I really want to stay married and staying married is not an easy thing. It means you are completely in tune with your partner. It means you have found your soulmate because you will have to be able to stand a lot of disappointments that would definitely come but then again you have to learn to forgive.
Tell me about your first love?
He was a very, very, handsome man. A long time ago, very handsome man, trust me.
Let’s talk about relationships – are you currently in one? Are you looking at settling down at some point? I know you’ve heard that question a lot of times but tell us the truth now.
*takes a deep breath* I think everyone is prioritizing and so am I. It’s not like I don’t want to settle down or want somebody and until I find that person, there’s no thoughts of me settling down.
When was the last time you had a boyfriend… do you have one now?
I don’t have a boyfriend now.
Ok, so what are you looking for in a man? Your ideal guy, what are you looking for in a man?
I am that person that eats with her eyes, like I need to be attracted to you. Definitely. There has to be physical attraction that will draw me to you but at the end of the day, it’s your mind I’m going to fall in love with. I’m probably looking for a friend, someone who shares a like mind and somebody who is confident. Aww, I love tall guys. I’m short you have to think of the kids.
Don’t you think a lot of guys are scared of you now? They will say she is good looking, successful, she’s got her own career, let me leave her alone, I can’t handle that kind of wife I can’t tell her what to do.
Then he is a baby, a boy. I’m not looking for a boy. Men don’t let artificial things like that intimidate them.
So can you marry a guy you are richer than?
How much money do I have? I’m not even that rich. I pay tax, I pay rents, I run an office, I have staff. So, talk about the money I spend, not the money I make.
