Help! She Doesn't Want Me In His Life Anymore.

Hello a Friend of mine Sent this to me to post on my blog or my twitter page for advice. I don't have the kind of blog.
So I am posting it here, then I will add her to the group to read and get advice:

My name is Jane, My best friend's name is Sam. He has been my best friend for 19years since our JSS2, we went to the same University, even shared a flat and a car. I love this man so much but only as a brother.

I know everything about him, he is my Rock.

This man has gotten me thru the Lowest periods in my Life, as have I for him. He loves me like a Sister too. There has never been any time when we were sexually attracted to Each other, I have never even kissed him by mistake. but we do Everything together and are very close.

11 months ago, I introduced a friend from work to him. I know him well, so I figured they'd be a perfect fit & they hit it off so good. She is a really nice girl and was so grateful to me for bringing Sam in her life. They are engaged now & getting married in 7 months.

However Recently, I find that he is "dodging" to see me. He used to come to the office but not anymore, now he sneaks over to the House. I asked him about it & apparently Lara his fiancee told him that she is not comfortable with our friendship & he should limit it.

We have talked about it & are both devastated. He loves her but doesn't want to End the 19years friendship. Lara thinks it's unhealthy & would lead to other things as I don't currently have a boyfriend (I just broke off a 2 year relationship).

I don't want to lose my bestfriend. He says he doesnt want to lose me. What can we do? please Help.


This was posted on a facebook group and I took the liberty to share since the poster wants it shared. Also I found it interesting, boy-girl friendships can get funny when a significant other enters the picture. You read this, what advise would you give the poster?


  1. She should calm down. What kinda rubbish sentiment. If he is just your friend then it shouldnt be a big deal, he is getting married, give him some space. Geez!

    I agree with the fiance. Its not healthy.

    In my single life, every girl that came around me forming friendship ended up getting the D. Well 1 or 2 escaped. My point is one day one day, she will collect the D if she continues with this friendship story. Or maybe she secretly wants the D.


    1. i agree with you Kon.
      she should give the guy some space because if she is the one in the new relationship her boyfriend won't like that friendship either. so she should put herself in the girlfriend's shoes.

  2. The fiancée says LIMIT, not END friendship, but this is what we get:

    "...I don't want to lose my best friend. He says he doesn't want to lose me...". Hianest Hian!

    Dear Poster, please respect yourself, your friend, and his fiancée. You had all the time to declare your love for him but you chose to be a match-maker, so what's your deal? This is selfish. STOP!!

    1. Lmao@ hianest hian, wel said Memphis., the poster is acting desperate., if she was in the fiancee shoes, she would do something similar. Let your friend be dear poster and move on with your life. Maybel

  3. The fiancé is being honest (esp as the bff is now suddenly single).

    You might think u "love him as a brother" but truth is, u love him nonetheless and he loves u too. As long as ur not taking this "love" to the next level,its best to leave them for now till u can also sort ur love life because as long as ur single, its gonna hurt being part of the team organizing ur best friends wedding (esp if people ask u why u aren't the bride)

    But then again, if ur really not sexually attracted to this ur best friend (and it's mutual),then yh,it really sucks to lose ur friend esp as it's u who even introduced this fiancé to him...

  4. Give them space,it's the right thing to do. J

  5. From a woman standpoint, the fiance is only been insecure, and to think that she initiated the relationship should give the "fiance" cause to hold her peace. Anyway the mind can be deceptive.

    Poster Jane, my counsel is that you allow the relationship some space, have an open heart towards them, wish them well, call your friend to keep tab on him, there is little or nothing you can do know the story of "when love happens" right? Cool.

    As opposed to what some people may think, like you wanting your best friend for keeps, I feel you are only angry at this point, almost regretting the hook-up and wishing you could turn back the hands which is only natural. You too will be fine. Let them be...

  6. If doable you are doing not wish them to possess them long the watch nfl games online free tickets or send them by another style of dearly-won delivery since that's getting to increase your bottom line

  7. I second Habibi's comment.

    Losing a friend, especially one you have known for that long sucks big time. But just try to give a little space and just check on your friend from time to time.

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.
