Dear Thelma.... (Should I, Should I Not?)




Good morning T, my boyfriend wants me to spend some days in the east with him and his family this Christmas. We have dated for almost one year and he has met my family but he has not proposed yet or anything. I've not met his family before as we don't live in the same town with them so this will be my first time of meeting everyone, except his brother that lives with him. We are both old enough to settle down and I know he is serious about me. But right now we are only just dating and he wants me to spend a week with his family so that they can know me and "get used to me". Is it advisable for me to do this? Please BVs what do you think?

PS: my mum is late and I was not planning on spending xmas with my dad, so I am free to go if I want.

  1. I think u should go. Maybe it might even catalyse the 'putting of the ring' bt one week is kinda much sha.

  3. He wants his family to give the approval. At least thats what it sounds like to me. Personally i wouldn't go because it seems he cant make up his mind himself. And the visit may work against you. Has he declared he wants to marry you?
    In my own mind, this is auditioning in front of his family without you knowing where it is going. Has he ever put you on the phone with say his mother? Is there a way you can go on xmas day and make it a days visit?

  5. Sweetie, please don't go and spend a week in his village. Not advisable...it all leads to See Finish Syndrome. they probably want to access if you are good enough for their son/brother. He should be the judge of that. You can visit them without sleeping over. Besides, it's customary to visit and sleep over after he has brought wine, and made his 'intentions' known to you family. If you don't have anywhere to go this xmas, come to my village, i'll give u a good time- im female n married- if they really want to 'know and get "used to you"', they have all their lives to do dat. Ciao!

  6. I ll advise u go, its good to know the people u myt end up with as family. Some families are full of sh** and u can never know this from a distance, its important u spend some days with them so they ll get to know u and u get to know them, nothing is better than marrying into a family where u r loved and accepted and u loving em equally. I made that mistake in my previous marriage, if i had spent just one night with that family before marrying my ex, God knows i wld not even step a toe in, by the time i got to know them, it was already late, so dear poster if its possible to get to know the whole village before stepping in permanently, Please do and dont forget to be urself while u are there, it is better for people to see the real you and love and accept you the way you are from day one. If it doesnt work out just know that it wasnt meant to be, but i believe it ll work out by God's grace. Happy hols in advance.

  7. Anon 9:59am, GOD bless you.

    Dear poster, if a man/woman wants to introduce the spouse to the parents it should be a dinner date, not spending days and weeks with a family you're not married into. It's so wrong. If you go it'll be a case of *me against the world*. Your every step, word, cough, sneeze, table manners, jokes, morals, flaws, dress code, etc will be brutally monitored. At the end of the day you may probably be wondering if they expect their son to bring home an angel. I'm not insinuating that his family might be that bad, but be rest assured that it's usually the ways of a typical African family. Keep your dignity abeg. If you must go, let it be for a day, then leave. Stay blessed.

      Poster that's an audition for a role u desire & u are just an upcoming actress *seeing as he hasn't popped the question yet*

    2. Abeg make una let her go see the Guy's Family oh! I totally agree with ifunaya. She's not there to show pride, As much as it is an audition for them it is likewise an audition for you too! Observe and know them. Wonder if u are married and den u still end up getting to know(cos its inevitable) and its too late. Do it now dat you've got the chance to Say NO or YES.

    3. @ memphis and Ruth i had same opinion before, and everything was settled before i got to know his family, thats when i knew i had entered one chance, even at d early stage i wanted to back out, most people wr like u r not going to live with em n bla bla, but guess what in less than one year, his mum moved in with us and she had major OCD, she doesnt open doors, does not touch tv remote, does not switch off bulbs, does not hug pple, would not let me carry my baby if she is d one carrying him at d moment except i go ve my bath and come back, what was i supposed to do, start dragging d baby with her or what, bone oh, people have major issues and u cant know that from a distance. If the guys family doesnt like her and says thr son should not marry her, its better for her, u ll find a family that ll love and accept you which is what it should be naturally. Please DONT SETTLE..

  10. Is it me abi things have completely gone upside down. As a girl friend alone if you stay up to a week in the village with my family it's a minus. Go very early in the morning and leave the same day. Will that guy agree to come to your village and stay one week? Abi what applies to you does not apply to him. Trust me you can't know everything about a family in one week. That is why the igbo's do what is called "Uju ese", which is the best way of finding out about a family. Biko until he declares intention, do not go. What if he finally does not ask for your hand in marriage what will you do with the so called "knowing his family visit". J

  11. Don't.sleep.over. Before they see you finish. That's how my cousin invited his girlfriend that he wanted to marry to the house and wanted the girl to sleep over. My uncle refused, said 'that must be how she goes around sleeping in people's houses. If you were a fiancee already, that would have been another issue entirely

    great spell caster (Dr Ogba ), she gave me his email, I emailed him, he asked me to buy some items faithfully I did all he asked of me. He told me not to bother, that I'm going to bear him children immediately he comes back to me, two days later my Husband came with his friends and started begging for forgiveness, and asked me to come back home, I forgive him, I went back to him, luckily I was pregnant, here I am today am now a mother, I gave birth to a set of twins, a boy and a girl, and we are living happily, DR.Ogba thank you very much, if you are passing through any hardship and you are looking for break through kindly email Dr Ogba on (ogbapaullovespellcaster1@gmail.com) or

    sincerly want to thank a great spell caster called dr Ogba who helped me to
    bring back my wife after she had left me and my kids for good two years and
    six months. through out that year and six months i and my two kids called kate and wilson were in great suffering until one day i came in contact with this
    powerful great spell caster who decided to wipe out tears away from eyes.
    According to my problem He decided to perform a spell service
    immediately and all other necessary things that has to be done an after the
    spell had been done He told me to wait for just 40 hours that the spell
    will start to take effect and so i believed and i waited for the time he
    had said.To my greatest surprise , exactly the 40 hours that he had said i
    received a call and when i picked the call it was my wife pleading and also
    asking for forgiveness, at first i was amazed but later i came back to my
    mood and i decided to hang on the phone on her but when i terminated the
    call she keep on calling an i decided to switch off the phone.
    To my greatest surprise around 6:30am in the morning i heard my door
    bell ringing and i decided to open the door , to my surprise i saw my wife
    kneeling and begging me to forgive so i decided to forgive her and i
    ordered her up an i embrace her. This was how i got my wife back with the
    help of the great dr Ogba

  18. After being in relationship with him for 3 years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email is DRAISEDIONSPELLCASTER@GMAIL.COM you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other problem.

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.

#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

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

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!

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…
