Dayo Amusa may be known as an actress and occasional musician, but these days; she is widely recognized for her controversial statements about dating and relationships in general.
1. Is it a must for everyone to get married?
Dayo made this statement in an interview with Channels TV. She further said she doesn’t see marriage as a supermarket. “Even the bible said he that finds a wife finds a good thing, it didn’t say all, a lot of people feel that once you attain a certain age, you have to be married, it takes two to tango. I don’t see marriage as a supermarket which you want to jump into for window shopping and then when you feel the mall is boring, you come out of it, why go into it the first place?”
2. Why women attract cheating men, alcoholics, drug abusers, narcissists, and sociopaths
Writing via her Instagram page, Dayo explained why some women attract the wrong type of men. “We attract cheating men, commitment-phobic men, emotionally unavailable men, emotionally damaged men, alcoholics, dr*g abusers, narcissists, and sociopaths. It’s like we are a magnet for men whose pieces are shattered all over the place. And for some reason, we feel compelled to put these pieces back together. But I must admit, I have failed every single time. I realized that the reason I was attracting these types of men was because I believed I could save them.”
3. We think we can turn a cheater into a loyal boyfriend
A part two of her earlier comment about why women attract the wrong type of men, Dayo further said some women think they can change the men in their lives. “As selfless, thoughtful, giving women, we think we will be “that woman”—the one who will change them. We think we can turn a cheater into a loyal boyfriend. We think we can help him walk away from the dr*gs and alcohol. The sad news is, we constantly blame ourselves when they don’t change. Every time they fail us, we think it’s because we failed them. Their hold on us becomes stronger; they keep us around knowing they have nothing to offer.”
4. “I will never announce any details about my love life or marriage plans”
Asked the qualities she wants in a man, she said “Personally, I will never announce any details about my love life or marriage plans. It is a private affair. The qualities I look out for in a guy are my personal business. I do not want it to look as if I am advertising what I want.”
