Calling All Men!





Good morning people! There's just something so exciting about Saturday mornings, don't you think? Well for those of you that work on Saturdays, please accept my sympathy. 


Anyhoo, it occurred to me that you, I, we only read and hear stories of heartbroken women. Do a post on heartbreak on this blog or any other blog/forum and the ladies flock out in droves telling their tales of woe and baring their battle scars, each one's story more pathetic and sorrowful than the last. 
And then when it's not posts it's mails. Unfortunately most people don't want their mails posted but the mails written by chics currently passing through one heartbreak or the other are sometimes almost as long as a chapter in a novel. 

I think it was when I read one particularly long and tear-inducing email some weeks back that I wondered, wait, don't men get heartbroken too? How come nobody ever hears a man talking about heartbreak?

I know for a fact that men get heartbroken. I also know that you guys deal with things differently from the way we do. You internalize a lot of things, you drink the pain away and you bury it deep inside of you. 

But I would really like to hear what heartbreak feels like for men. As in, an honest account. 

A few guys have mailed but even though I don't know who they are I still sense them trying to maintain some control, still trying to act all macho. It's like "yeah, she broke my heart and I'm hurt buh mehhn shiii, it's on to the next bitch, never loving another chic again. You women ain't loyal mehn, f*ck that sh*t". I'm like; issokay! LOL. 

Seriously though, men we know you have feelings and emotions too, more men commit suicide as a result of a broken heart than women do, so it's possible that you feel this pain even worse than we do. I know it's manly not to whine and cry and all that and I'm not asking you to, but for once, let's talk honestly about being heartbroken. 

Another thing that fazes me is how a man will sleep with a different woman every month and flirt with chics on bbm and other social network when he's in a relationship and then is shocked and heartbroken when his girlfriend breaks up with him. I've never been able to make sense of that one. Can you please explain it to me? 

Women, has that happened to you? Your boo repeatedly cheats on you like you guys signed an agreement at the beginning of the relationship allowing him to sleep with and flirt with whomever he wants, whenever he wants, and when you get tired and say you want out of the relationship they fall down on the ground and grab you by your ankles and swear that if you let them go they will die there on the floor.... Makes no sense to me. 


(I can't shake this feeling of excitement this morning. Have a blessed day y'all!).

    2. Same thing happened to a friend of mine, her now ex told her he was keeping her while sleeping with other girls.
      But another girl on the other hand told her boyfriend to sleep with other girls while she kept her body intact, it made sense to me at that time, but it doesn't anymore

  3. Well, my ex broke my heart by dating another guy and lying to my face. Our communication reduced and we just stopped talking, I was heartbroken because she was the first woman I ever loved. Deleted all her pictures and everything that'll make me remember her and couldn't sleep well for 3 months. We back as friends now, but anything we talk about the past it hurts me deep inside and I get all emotional, even as I'm typing this

    2. True that. Iv just had my second heart break in 9months. I haven't even cried this time. I'm trying to laugh, so much and so hard. I don't even want to talk about it, just told my friends we had broken up, but didn't give them a reason, no matter how they pushed. Inside I'm really hurting though... to imagine he is an ex I reconnected with... mtcheew

  5. Blessings....
    Yeah the joy of Saturday morning is wait.....what I don't have to get up early and prepare for work, rushing out the house, flaging down the bus out of breath and breathtakingly grateful to the driver for taking pity on you and stopping and you say breathlessly "thank you, thank you, so much woooo!"

    Yeah men have heartbreaks the difference is they usually hold it in (while we women let it out, shout it from the roof tops) and let it fester and burn their insides creating small decays until that too begins to spread and contaminate their being.

    Peace....
    have a blessed and joy filled weekend.

  6. I used to think that I'd experienced heart break till I broke my own heart by myself. I cheated on someone I wasn't dating yet but I was very much in love with. We were almost at that point of taking it to the next level when another girl came into my life and lust like I've never felt before took over and we started nacking. One day my love stumbled upon my text messages saw her messages, then I went in and saw her crying. She said that there's no way we can get to that other level cos I betrayed her trust. I heard a loud Crack in my mind and till now I think it was the sound of my heart, I won't lie. She's now married to another and we stayed good friends but never dated. Till today I regret cos she's a wonderful human being. It took me years before I finally got over her but whenever I see her pics I still feel butterflies. Oh well
    Now to the case of men that cheat and expect a girl to stay, truth is that they never expect to get caught. A man sleeping with another doesn't mean he doesn't love the one he's with. I know how that sounds but it's the truth, a man can nack a woman and forget her name immediately after he cums. For women it's different but I won't go into that now. If a guy keeps cheating and keeps getting caught it's cos he doesn't love his partner enough to code it properly. In some cases he's too chicken to break up and wants her to do it herself so he rubs it in her face. Some girls are too stupid and desperate to see it. Sorry but it pisses me off when I see a girl that thinks one particular man is her whole world and she must die on top his matter

    2. Welcome back, Steele! "A man sleeping with another doesn't mean he doesn't love the one he's with." it means he doesn't love her enough, enough to respect her and know that he's doing her wrong even if she's not aware.

  7. Women are more vocal and emotional than men. And a crying or shinning man is seen as a weakling in our society, so they put on a brave face and leak their wounds in silence.

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!
