Stupid In Love!

I know, right? 

OMG! Thinking about this makes me cringe and if you think about it, you'll cringe too. So many of us have been totally stupid all in the name of love. I mean, you know how it is when you're "in love". You become blind to so many things. Love shuts down that part of your brain that you use in analytical and logical reasoning. I can't blame anyone. I've been stupid in love several times. 

I can't tell you some things I did in the name of love when I was younger. Well, I can but I won't. 
But I've seen people do things in the name of love.
I had a friend, a medical student who told her dad that she needed 350k because they said they all had to buy their own Cadaver. Daddy gave her the money and the money went straight to the boo's account for his house rent.

I had a friend back then in uni who was schooling in the UK. Boo was in Lagos. Every vacation, said friend would come to Lagos and spend about a month with the boyfriend. Now the stupid part? She paid for all the flights. To and fro. (More than 12 in total). And the one month in Lagos was spent in a hotel with her boo, which she always paid for from her own pocket! Now, said boo never went to the UK to see her except once. And guess what, she sorted out his visa and paid for his flight tickets. But that's not the amazing part. Here it is, bobo said he couldn't fly economy. So yeah, my friend got him two business class tickets. Hehe. Chai. Love! Allow me to add that after university when she 
relocated back to Nigeria, the guy wasted no time in dumping her ass! 

I can tell you more stories but instead, I'll share some comments with you. 

Lol.

The guy is mean o!


That's 1000 pounds not naira btw. 



LAND??? Then he said she must be dreaming. Oh hell no! (I'm laughing so hard right now!)


(Sorry for all the cancellations, had to blot out names that were mentioned). 


So people! You're not alone. Oya share your stories too. And I would like to hear from guys also because guys can also be stupid in love. So many actually are!

I live in the UK while he lives in lagos. i travelled last November to see him. I'm thinking of going in June this year but I've got a double mind. should i go or not as I'm spending Xmas with the family (my family and I live in the UK). is going to naija twice a year too much? Ive been thinkkngy - I know he doesn't have the resources to come but would he come if he had the resources? should i invite him to come instead? of course he will have to pay for his flight. also, should he pay for my flight in June if he really wants me to come - i really want to see him.

    2. Never pay for your trip to visit any guy cos he will take you for granted. If he likes you enough he will move mountains to get you to where he is. I'm a guy and I'm speaking from experience, your trip isn't the only thing you will pay for

  9. D most stupid thing I ve ever done 4 love was changing the sim card I was using for 8yrs...cos he felt I had a lot of suitors. Guess wat? He dumped me after a year.

  10. if these mundane, banal, unromantic sounding things aren't gestures of love, what the hell are they? What else was the point of doing them?

    ReplyDelete
  11. None of these things were done out of love, they were done out of infatuation, obsession, fear and high stupidity. True love isn't really blind, all the above named qualities are. Fortunately I've been in love but never stupid.

  15. Me and my partner broke up at the end of last year. He wanted to go on a break, I didn’t want to but I eventually agreed. He said he needs time away for a while and be single. He said he would contact me when he was ready to speak to me again but its approaching eight months. I don’t know how long he’s going to take but I was willing to gave him as much time he needs to think things through. I can’ wait much longer, so I search whole web and I found very powerful magic person. He has this website http://magical-rituals.com , I buy from his love spell, and it worked after one month. I ‘m happy again.

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
