The 2010 winner of the Miss Ghana pageant, Stephanie Karikari has stated she will rather remain single than 'step up to the plate’ to propose to a suitor.
According to her, it is unnatural for a woman to take the first step in the courtship process, as some men use such instances to look down on women.
Stephanie stated that a woman making the first move on a man is unconventional especially in our part of the world, and it would be wrong for her to attempt to do so.
“First of all, the Ghanaian culture does not even support it. In our African setting, it is the men who chase the women and not the other way round. Simply put, it is not a wise decision for a woman to make.
I will feel very bad and look so stupid if a man tells me ‘after all I didn’t propose to you’. I just can’t imagine a man saying that to me,” she said.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, the former beauty queen disclosed that she had indeed fallen for some men over time, but she would never be the first to open up about her feelings.
To her, the thought of a woman making the first move on a man is so preposterous that she would not suggest it to a friend or relative.
She states all in all, she would rather wait to be dazzled by a charming, stable man.
