I Was Catfished!

Guys, I was Catfished. No, it wasn't as extreme as the above but let me ask you this;

Assuming you started chatting with someone on a social network platform, for instance facebook, bbm, Whatsapp and you both really hit it off. You guys have an instant connection and you go from chatting to talking on the phone. When you've both noticed the mutual attraction you request to see more pictures of them, as the only one you've seen is the one used for their profile, which does not give you much to "work with". 

They send you pictures which you quite like, even though your fondness for them has nothing to do with the pictures they sent you. You spend a lot of time with each other on the phone and begin to become quite used to them and dependent on their phone calls, so much so that you begin to picture a life with them.

Finally you both decide it's time to meet in person and you're very excited. You show up and you're jittery with anticipation. Then someone shows up "claiming" to be them and it seems someone is playing a prank on you. Where is your darling friend? This is not your darling friend!

But alas, your excitement plummets like a punctured parachute as you realize that this person is the same person you've become so fond of. 

As they chat excitedly, you're overwhelmed with disappointment and confusion. This person is not at all what you expected, you don't like what you're seeing. Yet, this is the same person you have come to like and depend on. 

(If you've been chatting with the guy in the first picture and the guy in the second picture shows up) What would you do?


  1. I've been in situations like this, so all i do is show my disappointment in the most polite manner and gradually withdraw from the relationship/friendship afterward.

  2. I find it difficult to keep a 'coded' face. The face just gives me up before I even start convincing the person that I'm not too bothered abt the appearance...

    What is do is that she doesn't hear from me for a long time and there after, I revive the friendship but this time its just platonic.

  3. Let me very honest, This can not happen to me T.
    If I'm chatting with the intent to date/love, we will DEFINITELY see before emotions start flying around or love start doing me anyhow. Because I'm a little bit vain in the Looks dept, I'm not saying Look like Tyson Beckford, but at least don't hurt my Eyes or Pride....

    But if it did happen, I'll politely explain how vain I am & move on. We'll still be friends but the spark would have faded even before I left our meeting point...

  4. Really funny,anyway am not a person who knows how to pretend, therefore I would show my disapproval in a way that wouldn't seem insulting and I don't think such can happen to me cos I don't give room for social network relationship.

  5. Funny I once had an experience, dude was like teddy bear size and had very low self esteem. My disappointment quickly turned to pity and maternal instincts took over. I nurtured this dude and we built his self esteem together. He later wanted to date me but whatever romance I had prior to our meeting disappeared the day I saw him. He was like 5ft and an inch tall

  7. Was harmlessly chatting with this dude o! Was not hesperring it to go anywhere o! Got to the age part and when I revealed mine,the dude bolted like a run away

    1. Because you look half your age.

  8. Had. This experience too. The dude was soooo fat. He really was serious, but I Said no thenksssss. Lol.

    1. I wonder what women have against fat men. Men don't treat fat women this way o.

    2. Ehn?! You say Wetin?!!! Only men that like them big or fat o! See this anonymous! Nah where you from come?! Hmph! Iffa hear say they don't treat them like that!

  9. Thelma... this happened in "when love happens" loool... i'll simply do what oluwanimoduroti bankole-smith(the protagonist) did when it happened to her... she simply told the guy he had the wrong girl! When the guy insisted he recognizes her from the pictures! She simply said "you noh dey hia word?!!!! I'm not who you're looking for" and then walked out on him! Loool.
    Thelma... watch when love happens nah!

    Meanwhile don't you just love that name! Oluwanimoduroti bankole-smith! + is it bad that I want to marry a "Tomiwa" that has a sexy compound name! *facepalm*

  10. i doubt this can happen to me,i have to meet you before developing any kind of feeling whatsoever but in a situation where its happens,am not soo good at pretending even my facial expression will show how disappointed I am

  11. One of the reasons why am not too bothered about pictures,they can be deceiving.

    After enough filters and meet in real life and you'd be left wondering what happened.

  12. Lol! I don't even know what I'd do.

  13. Oh well, No lies eh..This has happened to me tho'. I saw him with a head as huge as a watermelon and I did a 180 degree march back to my house mehn....I mean, If I can't figure out how that head got on the wrong body then...180 degree march it is for me!

  14. Never been in the situation.. Bt I won't hide my disappointment sha

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.
