The Nollywood actress revealed the reason why she is still single during an interview with a lifestyle and fashion magazine, Schick.

She revealed that she could have been married years ago but things had not panned out well for her.

However, the multiple award-winning actress has not lost faith and is very hopeful that God will present the right man to her at the right time.


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 how she handles the pressure from the society especially in a country like ours, she 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.”

Addressing the myth that sex peaks for women as they age, Rita says that sex is exactly what you make of it.


“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.”

Describing dating as a nightmare for her, the 41-year-old adds,  “especially in these days of social media where with one click you are all over the internet.”

She adds, “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.‎”


Rita Dominic has however talked about having kids and revealed that she is "hopefully working on it" during a chat with fans on Facebook live.

In a career that has spanned 18 years, Rita Dominic has managed to stay youthful, elegant and relevant in the movie business.
