Blog Reader Asks...




Thelma plz let us discuss this on the blog, I think it will be an interesting topic. You said a girl and a guy can be just friends and I don't disagree. But please how many of you will be this comfortable if your bf has this kind of over-close female BFF? It looks as if they (OC and Lala) are even closer than the couple and I wonder how the wife feels but am sure she doesn't mind. But Thelma if it's me I will mind o. Is it just me, BVs am I alone in this? Will you encourage this kind of relationship between ur man and another woman?

*******

Blog readers, the poster addressed her mail to the ladies but I would also like to ask the men this question, because the female besties also usually have their own men. Dear men will you be comfortable with and accepting of your woman's very close friendship with another man, although they're just friends?

  2. In mj's voice **you wanna be starting something**

    Anyway... it depends... if you trust the guy.... (uhmnnn but sometimes, guys can't even trust themselves in some situations)
    You (obviously) won't encourage it.. you just might not go as far as telling the guy to choose btw you two or something crazy like that...
    although, boy-girl best friend kini(relationship)... me I don't understand sha... "ere ki laja bekun shey?". (which kind play dog dey follow lion play?) lol...

    But then again... I don't know how it feels to love someone and be jealous over the person or how you feel when your "lover" is in a "strong" platonic relationship with the opposite sex... so i'll just shut up and *look*

  7. Lol... Ruthilicious I'm so sure you're today's "Dear Poster".

    Back to the matter.. I think it's possible if they BOTH understand the situation. I do not believe that OC and Lala have never entertained such thoughts about each other at some point.. They probably even tried it and concluded that they were better off as friends.
    The point I'm trying to make is its possibe if they both know and understand their unique relationship. I've been best friends with a guy and we thought about it at some point and concluded that a relationship wasn't worth ruining our friendship over. We're no more "best" friends not because of the relationship ish, we just grew apart when i went to serve but we're still really good friends now. So, it's possible.

    As for letting my husband have a female bff, I honestly don't know how I'll react to that. I guess it will depend on the babe herself. If she comes off as territorial or possessive of MY man, then she will so "start something". And the supposed man gan, he has to be a tested and trusted honest person too.
    It all boils down to trust. But some men these days can so like to lie ehn! Wanting to eat from both sides of their mouth just like the post from earlier today.. God help us

  8. Err...well everyone and their own reasons and perceptions. I've come to accept mine, that I'm Best friend with a lady who had her court marraige today...so I was snapping pix(with a Professional Camera),it got to a point I needed to snap with my BFF, He (the Newest husband) took the Camera and started snapping I and My BFF. Probably someone passing by would think he was d camera guy nd I&My BFF are the True couple.
    Point is, Trust is one of the virtues of Love. If you don't have it, forget your 'relationship'

    DFH, I am your mother! Ur Sister! Ur Bff! Ur buddy! Hell, I'm ur Great Grand mother! U don't need no other female with boobs except our daughter!

  10. His wife must be a rare breed to be ok with it. As for me, no way!

  11. Well, it's really OK for such a thing to be, but as Ruthy has pointed out, it won't be easy as the devil works overtime in this present age. I personally might unconsciously turn to a monitoring spirit if my girlfriend had a male BFF.

  13. I used to be a class-mate's bff during our university days; sleeping in the same bed; eating same time etc. In fact, people thought he was my first daughter's dad but truth is we never talked about adding romance to our friendship. The issue didn't just come up and I never considered it (don't know if he did). As fate would have it, we grew apart and it was more of my fault. More so, I felt I had to hand over the 'space' to his wife.

    Would I encourage my man to have a female bff? I doubt it because that should be my role once I'm part of his life.

    Would I want another male bff? I've given some guys the opportunity and they all asked for sex.

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.
