Calabar women have been known over the years to possess a reasonable amount of extra strength, mixed with undiluted beauty that drives any man at any point in time crazy. Could it be the power they pull in the other room that makes them phenomenal?
Well, that may just be it.
However, this is not only what makes their women special and irresistible. As published by Naija.ng, there is a lot more to this.
First off, this article is in no way to malign the Calabar women in Nigeria, as they are beautiful and hardworking. Calabar women do have a reputation among Nigerians which makes men either crave to them or scared to keep them.
Below are some of the reasons we have heard over time:
1. Height. While this is not a general thing, Calabar women and even their men tend to be short. The height disadvantage is one reason most men might be scared to go into relationships with them, especially if such a man prefers a woman who has considerable height.
2. Cooking. ￼Now, this is strange, but another thing that makes most men and even women scared of Calabar women is their cooking ability. The belief is that most Calabar women are so good in the kitchen that they could use their cooking to control any man they want. Which seems to be alike an unfounded fear.
3. Names. Another funny thing most people worry about is the language, which to the ear of outsiders sounds like Mandarin.
Most men want their baby names to be sound relatively pronounceable. Calabar names are beautiful but can be really difficult to pronounce if you do not speak the language fluently or you have not taken the proper time to master the sounds and tonal differences.
4. Dog meat. Although, this could have been undercooking, yet it seems to deserve a special number of its own. Dog meat also popularly known as 404 is one delicacy that causes problems. Most men who are not Calabar, view dogs as man’s best friend and they usually find it difficult to engage in eating dogs. But Calabar women love to make 404. This matter of food is taken quite seriously as many even refer to Calabar people in derogatory names because of dog-eating.
5. S -exual Prowess. ￼Many men who have doubts about their s -exual prowess are usually scared of Calabar girls. This is because of the popular belief that Calabar girls love s -ecx. Calabar men too are no left out. Meaning that when a Calabar man marries a Calabar woman, then a lot of their time will be spent in the bedroom.
6. Bodily strength. It goes without saying that their love for s -ecx comes from a good amount of bodily strength. One young man who dated a Calabar girl had this to say: “I once tried arguing with my ex and the experience left me scarred, literally! Now, because of said scar, I can’t wear short-sleeved shirts. At a pool party – I’m that guy wearing a long sleeve.”
So what are your reasons for liking or scared of Calabar girls?
