I am in a state of dilemma

Dear Obaa Yaa,

I am a graduate of the universi­ty of Cape Coast and about to start my national service this year.

Unfortunately, my problem is my inability to secure accom­modation, considering where I stay and where I have been posted to.

I met a colleague male student who was a good friend of mine in the university. I told him about my problem and he has offered to share his apart­ment with me.

Though my friend’s apart­ment is really beautiful, and l need one for my National Service engagement, my fear is that I have never lived in the same apartment with any man, hence my hesitation in accept­ing this offer.

What should I do please?

Araba, Pokuase.


Dear Araba,

Your case is a very dicey one which must be handled with maximum care, cou­pled with deep thinking.

It is normal for you to hes­itate a little before accepting an offer like this.

Though this student was a good friend on campus, you are yet to know his true character if you get closer to him.

Staying in the same apart­ment with him is not advisable because you cannot tell what will happen when the doors are shut and the two of you are left in the same room.

He could genuinely permit you to join him in the flat and later change his mind, for which reason you must be careful.

It is only one out of 10 men who can genuinely grant you such an offer without asking for a favour in return.

If you have no option, then you should stay there at least a week or two and look for your own apartment within the shortest possible time.

The longer you stay in the same apartment, the more likely you may fall a prey to his diabolical plans.
