A Relationship after The Relationship.


So apparently Iyanya is to appear in Yvonne Nelson's new movie and the minute I saw this I started thinking. Can I work with my ex on the same project, in the same office, in the same environment? I've never had to do this and honestly I'm not sure if I can. 
      If I did the breaking up and we subsequently start working together, anytime I see him with another girl I'll get mad that he's moving on.
      If he did the breaking up, well I'll just generally be mad! And I don't think I could bear to see him with someone else, living life like nothing happened when he almost destroyed mine (I exaggerate a little). 
      I mean naturally after a break up its expected that he'll move on but do I really need to be a living witness to his moving on, on a daily basis? Mind you, even though I've moved on, even though I'm in a new relationship, I still don't think I'll care to see that. 


This reminds me of Lamide Akintobi and Ebuka Obi-Uchendu of Ebony Life's The Spot, I hear they are Exs and that they were once engaged! Every time I watch that show I keep scrutinizing them, looking out for telltale signs. There are none but as far as I'm concerned that's all for the camera jor! Can two people who were once so in love, to the point of making that decision to be together for the rest of their lives be friends when it ends? Can they just live life like nothing happened?
        When a relationship ends it's my understanding that unless it was a loveless one then one party (at least) always ends up being hurt and unhappy. If you both decide "erm, ok, let's end it" and go on with life like business as usual then as far as I'm concerned there was no love. Probably just mindless shagging or friendship devoid of passion and chemistry.
       Those are not what I'm referring to as relationships. I'm referring to that one where there was friendship, love, chemistry, passion, steamy hot sex (maybe), memories, long meaningful and meaningless conversations, tiffs, misunderstandings, make-up sex, French kisses first thing in the morning even with dragon breathe, and plans for a future... That is the kind of relationships I'm referring to. And when this ends can both parties become friendly, civil while working together?
         I can't remember who it was that once said "Unless you can die when the dream is passed, oh never call it lovin' " Of course not literally but you get the drift. 


It's just like Katrina Campins and Ben Moss of the reality show, Miami Hot Listings. They're business partners, own and run a company together and guess what, they were once married! I keep on wondering about it, I mean Ben has moved on and is seeing someone seriously (last I checked) and Katrina is still single and searching. And they have to work closely together everyday, Katrina even has to meet with and be civil to her ex-husband's chic. Honestly I think I would lose it if I had to endure this everyday! 
      These people all look cool and well put together on TV but what happens behind the cameras? And then let's raise the issue of Okafor's Law, we all know how it is, the relationship is over but the sex isn't.... (Topic for another day). Do you think during break they rush to the storage room for a "quick one"? And most importantly, how do the new people people in their lives feel about them working with the former other-halfs? How would you feel?

Let me point out that I'm not referring strictly to being friends with your ex. Most of us are, but we don't have to see them everyday and know all the details of their lives, whether we want to or not, like we would have to if we work together.

  3. Whenever I see my ex we instantly start undressing each other with our eyes so I don't think I'll be comfy with my current gf being in close proximity with her ex on a daily basis. AS you said Thelma, except they were never really in that "kind" of relationship

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
