Front Seat Palava


Some weeks ago, there was an uproar on twitter about a girl who came online to talk about how she was with a guy, and because she was sitting at the front seat of the guys car, the guys girlfriend had to sit at the back. Why is this an issue? I'll tell you why in a minute...

This isn't the first time this topic is coming up on social media. The topic came up when this question below was asked and I've been wanting to write about this ever since the first episode.

So back to why it is an issue.

First of all, the lady sounded quite arrogant about it saying 'I made her seat at the back', in my opinion that is utterly disrespectful.
And the fact that she had to announce her "front seat victory" aggravated a lot of tweeps. I usually keep quiet on controversial issues like this but like I said, I have been wanting to talk about this one.

In my opinion, it's all the guys fault.

You go to pick your babe up and there's a lady sitting at the front seat who isn't your sister, cousin, mum or aunt and you don't have the courtesy to ask the girl to sit at the back or at least, explain to your babe who the lady is and why she's there. I mean, it's just common courtesy and it shows you respect your partner. If you can't respect your partner in front of other people, how do you expect them to show your partner any respect? This story is a perfect example of this disrespect.

Some of you will probably say, "but it's not like they're married, she's just his girlfriend", and all I'll say is, the foundation of a house is just as important or even more important than the main house.

Most guys will say, what's the big deal, it's just a front seat, Oga! You need to understand now that in relationships, these little things matter, whether you like it or not, those small things that you may think are insignificant actually make a lot of impact, especially with us ladies.

Moral of the post, if you disrespect your partner in front of people, you give those same people the idea that they can disrespect your partner too.

Oya over to you, what's your opinion on this issue? And ladies, what would you have done if you were the girlfriend in question?

Truly yours,
*hugs and purple "mwah's"*

  1. No no no no no, I do not agree. The position of my girlfriend in my car has absolutely nothing to do with the respect I have for her. Personally, I don't think the type of person I'd date would be one to take such things serious. I agree that it's the little things that matter, but come on, it's just a car, it really doesn't change her position in my life. Life is not all about romantic relationships. Really, I wouldn't ask a female friend to standup for my girlfriend. Respect starts with everyone, not just a partner.

    1. You seem to have missed some parts of my post. Notice how the girl in front came on social media to disrespect his girl? So you still won't ask a female friend to stand up even if it means her "feeling superior" to your girl? Okay.

  2. I think it should be cleary understood that whether my girlfriend sits with me in the front seat while I drive it has got nothing to do with the love we have for each other. Except otherwise she likes seating with me in the front seat while I drive, then I would have made my female friend know that I will ask her to come to the back seat when I pick my girlfriend. Sarcastically, she's my girlfriend in any case and not yet my wife. Anyway, it's a great writeup. Thumbs up 👍

    1. Did you miss the part about the other girl celebrating her "fron seat victory" on social media? And yea, i anticipated the "she's not yet my wife" line, that's why I responded to that ahead of time in my post.

      Thanks for reading and commenting Gibbs. Much appreciated.

  3. You clearly missed the part where se said your female friend went online to gloat about her front seat victory.
