Blog Reader Asks...

Hello Tee and TTB bvs. I read the post about the girl that made the first move and she is getting married to the guy now and I'm wondering whether I should make the first move with my crush? He is one of the clients in my office and comes almost everyday but we have never talked besides the normal courtesies. I have a huge crush on him and I don't know what to do, I know he is not married but I don't know If he is in a relationship or not. Physically he is everything I want in a man and I have watched his mannerisms very closely, he is very well behaved and decent. What do you think I should do? Help please I cannot stop thinking about this guy. 


  1. Invite him for a church programme, that's the most innocent strategy

  2. Invite him for lunch or dinner preferably. This should be your basis for the invitation -

    Identify one of the needs of your company that you think his company can fulfill

    Read up about his company and give him insights about improvement, expansion, re-structuring etc.

    The important thing here is to change the location of your meeting from a professional one to a social one and to do that in a responsible manner.

    Hopefully,with the social meeting, you'd have a better perception of him and be more suited to ask probing questions or steer the discussion to matters that concern you.

    Good luck. Cheers!

    1. Lmaooooo! Uncle Chris. Please remind me to ask you for advise if I ever need to "chike" any of the numerous guys i'm crushing on. Loool!

      Meanwhile, have you ever been chiked before? (by a lady I mean... lol)

      If yes, how did u respond to her advances...?

      Would you say all these suggestions are from experience or you think if a lady asks you out with any of these subtle reasons.. you won't be appalled and it'll endear her to you or you'll be impressed?

      I need answers uncle Chris. I need to know if these suggestions are tested and trusted... err for the poster's sake.

      Dear Poster.. you're welcome dear! Anytime.

    2. Chris ur suggestions are very suggesting!!!

      I do hope one works for the poster!

    3. Chai Chris your answer is professional o,I miss the thrill of having a crush,its been a while.
      Poster here is my little contribution, make small talk with him,ask him how his weekend went,church etc to guage his openess level, keep the convo short nd interesting, position urself strategically so you can jam nd have convos he will start gravitating in ur direction,randomly tell him Ur hungry one day and invite him for breakfast or lunch, most guys won't say no, from dere you have your chance to find a connection and know if you guys click after all this if the guy no pick your green light, nne kill the crush :D

    4. @ Aunty Kabuoy,

      I'd advise you to the best of my abilities if ever you need my advice.

      A few times, didn't crystallize into a relationship though but we stayed as friends. Not becoming a relationship wasn't due to the fact that she made the first move.

      I'm a very friendly person (at least, I'd like to think so), thus most of my 'relationships' tend to start out as friendship. Friendship also helps me to have a better assessment of her and vice versa.

      I haven't been asked based on the earlier reasons I gave for the poster. I'm not representative of the masculine population, hence what is applicable to me might not be to another and may not be to your desired guy. It's better you understand the principles of friendships and relationships and apply the applicable part to your own relationship. Some aspects of relationship are just sheer luck and if you do have any difficulty, would always be here to help out.

      @ Ruthielycious!

      Yeah, I feel they should be suggesting but not definite. If he's a 'sharp' guy, he'd get the message.

      @ Chioma

      Yeah, I knowingly made it professional. It's in a business environment she met him, so if he declines the lunch/dinner or a relationship doesn't materialize, they can easily go back to the default setting of just plain work relationship.

      You do have good ideas. I'd suggest poster to pick up tips from your suggestion also

    5. Yea... U are very correct sir...nice suggestion... .. But I hope d guy doesn't read her mind in a wrong perception......prolly seeing her as a loose girl or flirt.. Cos Dat might be a drawback in such cases

  3. @ Poster start flashing him d green light already. He'd surely get U unless he is the extremely shy type or he doesn't find u attractive.
    Little compliments here and there, and don't be shy 2 strike conversations with him Place yourself strategically, Make small talks with him but don't be too overbearing. He might probably like you already (or not). Get his phone number, and invite him 2 church like someone suggested above, it surely works like magic..

    Asking him out outtrightly or inviting him to dinner is too far fetched IMHO. U gotta B careful or you might end up being emotionally duped. Give him at least 25 shades of "green light" and let him make d first move. if a man wants you after doing that, he'll make the 1st move. However, there are very few unique exceptions. The minute you usurp a man's role to hunt, you are compromising your femininity.

  4. Give him plenty green lights. Meet him halfway, of you notice he's trying to ask you for your number, offer it to him. It's when he wants to actually ask you to date him you'll do small shakara

    1. Lmaooo @ you'll so small shakara. So she'll still do shakara?!

      I yaf lost! Mayowa he af "lost" me!

    2. Shakara ke.... After all d car Don dey speed u kon show red light..... Omo na accident be Dat ooo... No try am

  5. Give him green light,little little compliments about his dressing,the way he looks,laugh at his jokes n Chris's advice will work perfectly too

  6. Have no idea....let me read comments.

  7. The first comment that says to invite him to your church is the perfect option here.

  8. The first comment that says to invite him to your church is the perfect option here.

  9. That invitation to church would turn off for me, just saying....

    Give him green light as Eesah has written. Best option.

  10. Just keep acting nice around him..but don't over-do it. When u get the chance to chat, strike a convo about random stuffs...weekends, church, hobbies, lil office stuffs, general stuffs sha. With time u guys will get more comfy wt each other and he'll begin to warm up to you.

  11. Asking the guy to church isn't a bankable option at all from where im standing, I think it would be an akward request if all you have done previously is just the regular goodday / hello /hi greetings.

    I think you should keep it professional (on a lighter level).

    Find something related to what he does for your organization to strike a conversation. Just as chrisyinks suggested.

    Look for a lucky moment to get a few seconds. Of his time and get him to talk beyond the hello /hi greetings.

    You can even ask him for help to solve a. Non-existent or existing problem.

    When you ask someone for help, they are always inclined to help, especially if it's free (not cash /monetary related).

    Just get talking and don't waste a second. Above all, pls look very appealing to the eye. Men's r. Usually moved by what they see.

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?

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.
