That Heady Giddy Feeling Called Love!

Sometimes I feel like just saying I love you isn't strong enough to express how much I love you. 

I saw that tweet and memories flooded my mind. Once upon a time I hesitated to say I love you because I felt like it wasn't enough, it wasn't strong enough to convey the way I felt, if there was a word stronger, deeper, more powerful, more meaningful trust me I would have said it. When you love someone but the way you feel is stronger than the word love.... Aaaaaaargh! That intense feeling that has no beginning and no end, that feeling of having your heart intertwined with another's...

So last night I had drinks with a blog reader who's also a good friend and we got into this conversation of what love feels like and how we can't remember how it feels to be in love. I know about six blog readers at least (*winking* at y'all)  who are presently giddy in love, and although I'm on my way to church all I can think about is Kanye's tweet and how saying I love you isn't enough. 

And that's why I'm craving the indulgence of all you lovers, in three sentences or less please describe what it feels like to be in love, that heady feeling of not only loving but being loved by whom you love! What does it feel like? How does it feel? Do your toes curl when you think of them, does your heart beat race faster? What? Please tell! 


  1. You're so engrossed in your work and her image flashes in your mind, seconds later your colleague asks, "why are you smiling?". Out of momentary shock you try and comport yourself because you realize your lips had brains of their own at that time. Thelma, love is that feeling men like Aristotle found difficult to comprehend fully. I'll just try and use my tiny mind to describe it:

    The world and its vanities mean nothing when the feeling overwhelms you.

    1. "The world and it's vanities mean nothing whn the feeling overwhelms u" WORD!

      But I'd prefer the world and it's vanities mean nothing whn u live 4 the Most High

      Pay me no attention plz hehehe

    2. Eesah!!!! Hahahahahahahahaa!!!!
      You have my full attention o!!!! Rotfl!!!!!!!! You just had to say that didn't you?! Lmaooooo!!!!!!!!

  2. It's feeling like nothing else matters, it's peaceful, beautiful, silent yet exciting like your heart will burst at any minute. T it's the best feeling in the world.

  3. T one of d highest points of life is to meet "The One."
    When you meet this fabled "One," you'll know it immediately and never suffer a moment of doubts. Its a feeling characterized by butterflies and skipped heartbeats.
    Your "One" will complete you and make you feel whole, alive, sexual, and fulfilled. He or she is the missing piece to your puzzle and once you meet him or her everything will make sense. That feeling is jes preternatural!!

    *lips sealed and watching*

  4. Love is sweet ooooo. But heart break is more painful than fire burns. So let me join Easah in sealing my lips and watching. Lol

    1. n ibelima's post:
      If you cut me in little pieces and fed it to the vultures, it would hurt less than the pain I feel. Heartbreak is stronger than love.
      Yet I love to Love.

  5. Hmmmm, I literally closed my eyes for 10 seconds before typing this comment.

    "To Love Him" to Ruth means: Doing everything in my power to make them Happy every second of my life with them without reservation!

    "Being in Love with Him": This is Me Loving His Imperfections Perfectly with reckless abandon!

    "To be Loved by Him": Just imagine a gazillion butterflies reproducing in the already red walls of my tummy, My heart practically swirl & make me giggle into nothingness!
    Oh Boy!

    Being in Love & Truly Loved makes Heart break totally worth it...
    Million Thanks to ALL my Ex bfs for breaking my heart!
    Now & in My next life, I will trade U'all bastards for what I HAVE & FEEL NOW!

    1. Olorun!!!... see description!
      "To love him", "Being in love with him", "To be loved by him"... o ga! ... and to think iv never ever felt this way! hehe... issokay...

      *singing* (DFH, So I'm saving all my love, Yes I'm saving all my love, Yes I'm saving all my love for yoooooooou )

      This is the time to copy Eesah...

      *****lips sealed and watching*****

  6. Damn, feels like y'all are describing chocolate or chinese food or pizza. Yeh T, I know what you're thinking, I was never in love, I was just in love with the idea of being in love, I don't know how to love another, I've lost the ability to love another, I know how to love my family and close girlfriends to bits though...

    And yes I agree, heartbreak is stronger than love...have you ever gone to bed crying and you woke up 7 hours later and you were still crying? Yes that's heartbreak. Have you ever cried so much that you thought your tears would choke you and you'd die and never wake up? Yep that's heartbreak. And the worst one, you're so heartbroken, you think being dead (suicide) would end the pain. Lol how did this ever become about heartbreak though?

    I have lost the ability to love as in the butterflies and all that, there's no space in my heart to care for another as in the butterflies and all that. So I have now put all my love into and dedicated all my love to my career and God as in the butterflies and all that. Being successful in life would be my own revenge for all those heartbreaks of my 'stupid' years.

    Soooo,please guys,spill o! I'll just sit back like T and enjoy the comments as in the butterflies and all that.....hehe

    1. FNLP, no one, as in NO human being can say they don't have the ability to Love!
      U havent just met the one who'll make u forget the heartbreaks & even be happy it happened.
      I do hope u get there by just opening ur heart Dearie.

      I have felt heartbreak to the point if contemplating suicide TWICE & almost going through with it. But here I am today.
      Just be patient with ur Heart Love!

    2. Thanks Ruthylicious.....appreciate it. I know i cant love the way you mean BUT i have the ability to meet someone and be compatible and share the same values and go ahead and date seriously....but you lots kinda love?nah. but i''ll take your advice and be patient though cuz hey who knows................

  7. All i can say is, i'll love and be hurt but its another opportunity for me to love even better!!

  8. Hmmmmmm Love story everywhere . I think I am in love cos this one is very stress-free, my heart just accepts him naturally. I am not struggling to please him or something. I just love him effortlessly ( See grammar). @Ruthy you are very correct at been patient with your heart. My story is a case of knowing he will be my hubby even before he said hello and when the conversation started my heart didn't wait for acrobatics to connect and guess what the feeling was mutual.

  9. I'll be real,love is romantic and real when it's the man doing the falling inlove and expressing it. So my fellow ladies,come share a seat with me and observe...

  10. That tingly feeling of *common sense leaving your body* is what I call Love...

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…


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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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?

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…

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!
