Multiple award-winning Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic, 41, is hopeful that someday, God will send the right man that would change her status from single to married. She spoke at length about dating and marriage in an interview with the newly launched lifestyle and fashion magazine, Schick.
Rita maintained that she could have been married a long time ago, but things didn’t work out and she is still keeping her options open. She said, “I believe that God is in charge of my life and will present the right man to me at the right time“.
When asked about how she coped with social pressure, the actress said, “I am a human being and I would be lying to say that it doesn’t (get to me) sometimes. More so because it’s something I sincerely want to do but the feeling passes when I remember that society will not live with the person. I will live with the man, so it is very important that I do it because I want to, not because society wants it for me.”
Rita Dominic also bared her mind on the popular saying that sex, for women, gets better with age. She asserted that sex at 40 for individuals differ. “If you ordinarily don’t enjoy it, age won’t make a difference. I find that when a woman embraces her sexuality, many Nigerians equate it to being Ashewo , as if we should act like sex is not pleasurable,” she saidd.
The actress also opined that dating nowadays was not very easy for a celebrity, describing it as a nightmare, “especially in these days of social media where with one click you are all over the internet. “I do date when someone special comes around.
“I love being totally drawn to someone and doing all those loving things couples do, but I am also wary of liars and bullies,” she added.
