Young girl, ask your father to take you to college. It seems he is rich. Then have some dignity for yourself and think beyond the shamba boy. If you start with the shamba boy, next will be the watchman. With all due respect to the shamba boy and the watchmen, trust me, you are better than that. Think BIG.

What happens when you become richer? Will you still go for the shamba boy? Think twice.

You are over 18 and already know what you want. Go for it, then come back to this forum one year later and tell us how it feels like to leave the comfort of your father’s house to live with a shamba boy you eloped with because you think your father does not realise you are over 18.

Of course. And why are we not surprised? It’s always the shamba boy. You have mentioned that you are attracted to the shamba boy and that he reminds you of your friends back home.
And because of these you want to elope with him. Nothing about love whatever. Well, just go ahead. Next you will spot a traffic policeman, you will get attracted to him and he will remind you of something from the village. And you know what?
You will elope again.
