Whats Next For A 32 Year Old Nigerian Male?

What do you think a man in his early thirties (30s) should do next after having achieved basic education (first degree), working and comfortable?

Marriage is out of the question please.

The idea is to have an understanding about what people of this age group do with their time and scarce resources.

What do you think a thirty two year old Nigerian male should be into?

Hmmmnnn!

Really whats happening now?

Marriage comes with additional responsibility, you get to think of others.

The family is larger now and in-laws are expectant.

You tend to work hard at upholding the set standard.

Yes! when the right woman is in the house you have peace of mind.

You don't stay out late and have no reason to eat out anymore.

You're better off like i am now.

At that age bros, most people are right.

You would probably be better off with a good woman. She would give you a reason to do even better in life as now you're no longer thinking about just yourself.

Ijapa888,

At 32, I suggest you should work on the following:

1. Your views about marriage, while your comment made me lol, its not always like that with the right person and communication.

2. You should work on creating wealth (wealth is different from having money. it's total and encompassing)

3. You should work on distributing some of the wealth (create employment for people and mentor them)

4. You should work on creating a brand (maybe Ijapa 888 Dynasty or something, let your name register like Aliko Dangote's)

5. Work on yourself, because after achieving all of the above, you will need humility!

Please keep us posted on what you have decided,

my 2 shillings!

by the age of 30, an adult minded person should know what they want/desire in life and how to get it (if attainable). if by this age you have no idea of what you want then i am sorry to say that nothing can help you. asking NL folks for advises on such an important matter is like asking a a baby to walk: it should come naturally.

the main point that you have to focus on is happiness, what is needed to make you happy and your life worthy of being lived.

having goals and being driven is also very important. so look within you to know what you want from this life and go get it.

tpiah has no Yoruba meaning.

Higher education is an investment for the future, not for the present.

Its never too early to plan for life at 60.

@tpiah

Same reason you're calling yourself tpiah.

@debosky

Am doing that with more funds than you can ever imagine possible.

@ dree1

Nice one dree1, but it's not all about me.

There are 40 year olds who are at a loss as to what next to do.

There is sense in weighing your dreams with your accomplishments at intervals too.

Like someone used to say, theres no use running when you're on the wrong road.

Besides, who knows if that decision you took some 5 years ago will go down well twenty years from now or that education you seem so sure you've acquired will earn you the much sought after proverbial golden fleece.

I know a number of friends who still reside in thesame apartment with both parents at 40 or friends who stay in a single room(face to face) if you like with good first degrees and jobs to match.

So you see, it's not just me.

Its about knowing what you would do if you were in my shoes and i only want to know cause i sure can do with one good word of advice from you my NL brother.

@OP

Go have kids and watch them grow.

Kids like cars, houses, etc are assets (mostly). They tell your story, abt the life u 've had. At 32 you are already late by several years. Get a girl today (no one said you 've to marry her) make one or two and invest in them so that in years to come you can proudly show them off the way you would your automobiles.
