As history will have it be, many men and women still believe it is a women's job to keep the man committed in a relationship, even though he is usually the one who first initiates the relationship. This outdated belief led to Twitter conversation starter, Daniel Marven, asking his followers to share how they believe a woman can keep her bae committed.
"Open Discussion: What keeps a man?" wrote the musician and radio host on his Twitter page.
Soon many South African men and women flooded to the comments section to share their thoughts on "how to keep a man". While words like soccer, sex and money were thrown around frequently, it seems that for most Mzansi men, having a respectful woman was what gets them going.
Most SA women, however, seemed slightly annoyed by the question, a lot of them expressing how they had no desire to keep a man. A lot of them also declared that a man cannot be kept, unless of course, he wanted to be.
Read some of their responses below.
"He can not be kept. A man keeps himself. You can respect him, cook, clean and have sex in all styles under the sun... be beautiful, ugly. If he does not want to be there, he will, nothing keeps a man."
"Nothing as annoying as a naked woman walking in front of TV beaming a soccer match then boom goaaaaaaal."
"Even respect, sex and submission won't keep a man. Until a man finds himself, until a man has his priorities in order, trust me, he'll destroy every woman he dates. Ladies listen to me, men are always intentional when it comes to relationships, it it's you he wants, he'll stay."
"Honestly, having intelligence, being able to construct conversations of independence. Not what you were forced to learn in school. Just being debatable. But mostly respectful."
