Wise people in Yoruba express their views on what they think the secret to a successful relationship is. Here are some of those interesting words of wisdom from these wise folks:

  • A man who never gets jealous is not in love.
  • Love makes one stronger.
  • You need to feel loved before you can show your love.
  • If you want them more than anything else, it will be hard for you two not to get together.
  • If you say you're going to do something but don't follow through on it, there's no point in asking them again because they'll know that whatever they wanted was not important enough for you to do.
  • If she likes him, she'll have his back no matter what.
  • Never judge a person by their looks because beauty doesn't last forever.
  • People stay in unhappy relationships because the grass seems greener on the other side.
  • One should never have regrets in marriage because nobody knows how long it will last.
  • When we meet somebody new, we always tell ourselves that this could be the one.
  • Sometimes, we go on dates where everything clicks right away.
  • When things go wrong in a relationship, it can take a while to rebuild the trust between both parties and hope they'll be able to move forward despite what went wrong.
  • I would advise against being too hasty when dating somebody. Sometimes, you might end up rushing into a decision you regret later on in the future, so slow down and think about what you want.
  • It's better to wait for the right person instead of settling for someone who is only half right.
  • Marrying your best friend may sound like a good idea, but there are arguments such as "what happens if our personalities clash?"
  • Always keep your eyes open and know what kind of person you want to spend time with - once you stop looking, all chances of meeting someone will disappear.
  • Love is complicated and very often unrequited.
  • People who have difficulty maintaining relationships do so because they cannot control their feelings. If you're in a situation where you get jealous at every turn, it may be that you aren't ready for a serious relationship yet.
  • They should learn to control their emotions, manage jealousy and eventually figure out what qualities they want in a romantic partner.
  • Learning how to deal with difficult situations head-on is also important so one can avoid making decisions based solely on emotions alone.
  • You will never know if the person has feelings for you if you are too afraid to ask them out or find out more about them.
  • The secret to finding someone is not to sit around hoping that fate will bring them your way; take charge of your destiny and go after what you want!
  • When you first meet someone new, there's always a mutual feeling of attraction, but that doesn't mean it will last forever.
  • It's best to play things by ear rather than rushing into anything impulsively.
  • There is no need to rush into any commitments before being sure this is something worth committing yourself to long term.
  • A healthy sense of self-worth goes a long way in sustaining an emotionally healthy romantic life, avoiding codependency, and enabling others' bad behaviour patterns.
  • People make mistakes when they invest their trust in unreliable people.
  • Always look for potential red flags early on, so you don't make mistakes in the future - remember, hindsight is 20/20!
  • The most unbreakable rule is this- if you cheat on your spouse, they won't ever trust you again. You've lost any sense of respect they had for you, which means that any chance at rebuilding a healthy relationship has gone out the window.
  • A perfect relationship will be when you marry your best friend. If you are looking for a mate or someone to share your life with, make sure that you find someone as good of a friend as they are a romantic partner.
