Dear Thelma...




Dear Thelma please help me post this because I need advise from you and your readers. It is about me and my fiancee.. I love my him but I'm not in love with him anymore. Our family is already planning the wedding and it is almost becoming obvious because I am not active in any of the planning, even my asoebi color and my bridesmaids dresses it was my friend that picked them, I am even yet to buy my wedding dress and when I am ready I will send my measurement to my sister so she can buy me any dress in England. He is a very nice man and I love him as a person but maybe it is because we have dated for too long or other reasons that I no longer feel attracted to him and it is just like I'm dating my cousin. He is still crazy about me and he does anything to make me happy. Unfortunately t and bvs the only thing that will make me happy now is if they cancel the wedding. When I think about him marrying someone else I get jealous but when I think about marrying him I get depressed. Honestly right now I'm confused. My aunties say the important thing is marrying a good person that loves you and it is even better when your husband loves you more. Please advise me bvs because I don't know what to do. Thank you all.

  2. In my opinion, You guys dating for too long doesn't have anything to do with how you feel, haven't you seen couples married for more than 20 years still proclaim love to each other... My dear, honestly speaking, I don't even understand what you mean by you love him but you aren't in love with him... Just come out plain here, is there someone else in the pipeline who has been or is taking your fiance's place??

  4. The truth is that even if you find someone now that you are heads over heels in love with some years down the line you will feel this way. What will you do?divorce him? Your mind is running outside thinking there could be more out there, the truth is there isn't. Butterfly in the stomach does not last forever, you must find a way to keep the flame burning. J

  5. I normally won't leave a comment as I'd feel it's your business but I too went through this very same thing before I got married to my husband and would have loved for an experienced person to encourage me sincerely and that is the reason I'm going to give you this advice: Marry your fiance.
    Whatever you think you're looking for- butterflies, rainbows, stars- do not exist; they fizzle out.
    Love is not a "feeling", it is a decision.
    You may feel that way now cos you think your fiance is a "good", safe guy, perhaps you feel he lacks the tza-tza-tzu to capture and sustain your interest for a lifetime, perhaps you now see him as boring- but, my dear, thee is more to life than all of that.
    I assure you that once you both are together in your union and begin to have kids, the love will almost consume you.
    I am telling you this as someone who has "missed" getting married to a very good man in the past ( who was perfect, loved me to bits and the ground I literally walked on. I'd really liked him back but, as I had thought at the time, not enough to marry him as if felt he was such a good safe guy who didn't give me " butterflies" ) and I drifted from one bad, empty relationship to another for the next 6 years before God brought my husband who was almost exactly like this ex and you won't believe that I started having the same feeling.
    My mum literally pushed me into it because she recognized that I had started elf-sabotaging myself and I am so grateful today for that push.
    Don't kid yourself, you will regret letting him go if you do.
    Be guided.

  6. "...the ONLY thing that will make me happy now is if they cancel the wedding. When I think about him marrying someone else I get JEALOUS but when I think about marrying him I get DEPRESSED..."

    Yeah, sounds confusing, but I'm certain of one thing even though you seem to doubt it; you love him. So what's making you DEPRESSED? I'm suspecting FEAR. You just have to overcome it and lighten up so you don't regret losing him. GOD bless you.

    1. Yes Ma'am. In fact, the grass is NEVER greener on the other side. It's only green where U water it & U determine the level of greenness U want.

      Poster, Marry Him Please! U see all those butterflies & marijuana effect? Its always the BAD men that give those. Thanks to the irony of life.
      But like the Anon above said from experience, U won't regret marrying a good man.
      I'll totally marry a GOOD man who's head over heels in love with me whether I love/like him or not, Y? Cos Love is a Decision & eventually, i'd fall deep for him too.

    3. @ Ruthie, I couldn't agree more with your. Comment. "The grass is greener, where you water it"

      Marriage can be a scary thing, especially when you think of the fact that all things being equal, this is the man/woman for life"

      You had all the time to leave him in the past, yet you stayed.

      One thing I know for sure is that it is better to marry a man who loves you more, than you do love him.

      Trust me when I tell you that it takes more than love to be in a marriage. Don't throw what you have away. Someone else will an treasure him more.

      God bless you with wisdom to act right.

  8. Why do some ladies deliberately miss the good men and start the 'Nigerian men are evil' song when they eventually end up with the bad ones? Honestly, I do not understand this Poster's confusion as there are no real reasons she should feel this way about her fiance. I won't get tired of saying love is more than emotions; it's more of a decision, a deliberate act. And need I say that a successful marriage requires more than butterflies and superficial excitement which are most aften temporal?

    May God lead you aright.

  9. I had such experience before I got married. My fiance (husband now) was a good man,he is still A really good man. My confusion, to be sincere, was that I met a younger, cuter guy who seemed to be more lively and I started falling for him. It almost affected my relationship and I started thinking I was making a mistake staying with my fiance. I had to talk to myself and I decided to look at the future not the physical attraction thingy...God helped me and I made a decision. Sincerely, the grass is never greener on the other side. Cherish what you have. I'm married now and as they say, love is a decision. I'm forever grateful to God for not allowing me to be distracted. So my dear, if you have a good man, marry him. There is nothing as good as having a man that cherishes you.

  10. He who has head does not have a cap, he who has a cap does not have head.

    Dear poster, please listen to the advises stated above, the grass is only green where you water it. Close your eyes to all distractions and hold on to your good man. God bless you.

  12. A friend of mine almost missed a good man, cus she felt he was not up to her ex boyfriend 'who was very sociable and fine. She complained left, right and centre about this guy ehn. How he's not fine, not tall like her ex, all d excuse u can think of in dis world.
    The day I saw d guy (her husband now), I told her that God answered her prayers and now she wants to send away the fruit of her prayers.
    Today they are married, and she keeps saying to me 'E.........thank you o, if not for u, that's how I would just miss this good man'.
    Poster, these days, u need halogen lamps powered with solar energy to find a good man.
    Please biko, marry the one u have.
    And for u to feel jealous when u think of him marrying someone else just shows that you still love him.
    Marry him ooo.

  13. The grass is not always green at the other side. Why don't u start focusing more on those things that gave u butterflies at the initial stage when you both hit it off..my dear, marriage is like an empty barrel which is filled up by both parties. You can't receive what you don't put in. And it's selfish to expect more when you don't put in anything or make any effort.
    Lol@ejoec.."these days u need halogen lamps wt solar energy to find a good man ". Funny but true.

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.
