The Ramblings Of a Sexually Frustrated Person... - The Lady.




I know some readers will read this and think I'm making a fuss over nothing. It's just bants, they'll say, but no it is not just bants and if you are guilty of such acts, just stop it.

That said, I can now move on to the main issue. I have this male friend who I have known for about a decade now. If you asked me before now, I would have said he was one of my closest friends, but he's been making inappropriate advances at me for a while now and I have decided to do away with our friendship. 

For as long as I have known him, he's been in one relationship or the other, but he's still always toasted me. I have always rebuffed his advances because apart from the obvious reason, I have also never been attracted to him.  I have always regarded his advances as bants. Whether or not he genuinely wants to date me is not something I want to concern myself with.

Some months back, he confided in me about the current situation with his girlfriend. Think family drama. While I was still trying to proffer some advice as a good friend, he started to toast me for the umpteenth time. I had begun to tire out of his unending advances and told him point blank I did not find him attractive. I also asked him to give up already because it was becoming rather boring. Ladies, I'm sure you know how annoying it can be when someone you can't get with is constantly trying to get with you. Makes your skin crawl. Anyway, I decided to keep my distance, but we remained friends.

We live in the same city and he's got a wider social circle than I have. I like to hang with friends so every now and then, I try to make plans with him. However, I noticed that anytime I suggested that to him, he'd ask if I was ready to get pregnant because all he wants to do is kiss me and have sex with me. That was his response every time! No jokes! Initially, I brushed it off as the ramblings of a sexually frustrated person, but it didn't stop. I could message him 'hi' and he'd respond about wanting to kiss me. So I told him off - that it was inappropriate and I did not find it flattering in the least. He tried to pass it off as bants and I was having none of that. I told him it was disrespectful of my friendship with him. That did not deter him so I decided to do away with our friendship last night by deleting him off my bbm. I had not spoken to him in over a month and when I complained about being bored, he asked if I was home alone coz he wanted to kiss me badly. When his message came through, I was deflated. I ignored the message and left the conversation at that. In that moment, I realised that I could no longer feel comfortable around him. That I could not trust that he would not attempt to rape me if we found ourselves alone. I came to the realisation that I do not want to be friends with someone who continuously disrespects me under the guise of liking me.

I raised it with a couple of friends of both genders and most of them seem to think it funny. The more they laughed, the more it dawned on me that such behaviour seemed acceptable. Then I begun to wonder, what if this boy raped me and I told them about his remarks, wouldn't people blame me? Tell me that the signs were clear enough. As long as he did not act on his remarks, it was silly and I ought to ignore him. I'd hate to think I'd laugh if a friend told me this was happening to her. I'd like to think I would tell her to tell him off and stay away from him. The more I think about it, the more I think I was being sexually harassed.

I know a couple of guys who are guilty of this and I do not know how they think it is okay to disrespect anyone like this. It is not okay to make such crude remarks at someone who does not share in your 'humour' especially when the person has repeatedly told you off. Don't do it! If you are a lady, you do not have to accept such behaviour.

  4. Glad to read one more post of yours.

    I think you have taken the right steps and essentially, distancing yourself from him would help reduce the frequencies of his proposition and preserve the valuable part of the friendship. It’s not unusual for a party in a long-time friendship to develop amorous feelings for the other party and I guess that is what is happening here. This phase should subside with time. However, I feel ladies know how to effectively deal with issues such as this – so talk to your close female friends.

  5. I have a friend like this too. Since before we got married and up until now, he takes every opportunity to express his sexual desire. Thankfully, we now live in different towns but he still tries. I have fought, abused, even kept malice with him for some days; he would act sober until I forgive, then go back to being a pest. I was in another state for a training sometime ago and he happened to be in the same state and was pestering me to make a meeting possible. I ignored his several calls and I've not heard from him since then (last month). Hopefully, that finally did it.

  6. Hmm...How did you relate his aggressive advances to rape? Hmm? How? The guy is being silly. He knows you wont give him anything but like every other guy he just thinks that one day he will be lucky to catch you in a horny/vulnerable state.

    My concern is how you tied this to rape. Havent quiet shy guys raped girls before? Arent there millions of aggressive guys that have never raped anybody before? There is no correlation.

    Its okay to stop being friends with him if you are not comfortable with his advances. But to think he has the potential to rape in your head is unfair.

    Peace

    1. @Kon- seems you are one of those silly thinking persons. It will definitely end in rape if Thelma were to find herself anywhere alone with this crazy guy. I am speaking out of experience. I wasn't raped though..thanks to my martial arts training yrs... but it could have happened and guess what I thought the idiot was just being silly. I have learnt that if someone shows/tells you who they are, believe them.

  7. He's of no good... Glad you have let him go.

  8. "...It is not okay to make such crude remarks at someone who does not share in your 'humour' especially when the person has REPEATEDLY told you off...".

    This statement is *gbam*. Emphasize the word "REPEATEDLY" and it becomes *gbamer*. I may disagree a little with the potential Rapist analysis but every other thing (especially your decision to dust yourself off him) is spot on. It's extremely disrespectful to continue choking people with your sarcasm and humor when they show you clearly that they don't appreciate it. Chrisyinks seems to think it would wear off, it won't, not after she's warned him against it over and over again, months on end.

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

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.
