Living alone as a young Nigerian woman

Living with your parents seems like your wings are clipped and so when you are done with school and perhaps, even NYSC, you move out, especially if you are a guy. What if you are a lady? 

In Nigeria, if you live alone people will assume you are loose. Even your parents will hardly let you do that, except if you work in another part of the country.  At that, some landlords will not even agree to rent the house to you. They will give excuses about how they don't want to promote promiscuity or lesbianism and I'm like, "Hello! As if guys can't be men-whores and homosexuals!"

Living alone allows you know yourself better, enjoy your company and open you up to the joys of being alone (not lonely). In addition, it teaches you responsibility. Another benefit of living alone is that it increases your productivity. This is not some mumbo-jumbo from psychologists. I can attest to it. When you live alone, you will be less distracted from important stuff by gist or other chores that you may have to carry out if you were living with your parents. 

On the flipside, though you may experience bouts of loneliness, miss a few home-cooked meals and struggle under the weight of your bills, considering the way the economy is. 

Whatever be the case for you, living alone comes with its benefits and challenges but being a young lady in Nigeria on top of all that makes it even more difficult. Landlords and parents should cut us some slack. It's not all of us that men will come and marry from the family house. You men should also stop being so intimidated by women who live alone. Besides, that she lives on her own doesn't make her haughty.

Women also deserve to flee the nest. If need be, girl, move out and experience the best/worst of living alone!
