First Date Exit-Strategy!

LOOOOOOOL. I saw this on social media and I'm thinking to myself, this girl is the B word. 

But truth be told, she's only done something many of us, male and female, have wished we could have at one point in our lives or the other. 

I mean, she's simply savage (or maybe just plain shallow/stupid/silly) for doing this... Especially being brutally honest about wanting "to be around someone better looking".

But haven't you ever been on that (1st) date where you thought "Lord, why me?"

I have. 

Too many times. 

It doesn't have to be about the person looks, sometimes it's just the person. Like, the person is the entire problem. 

I remember this one date where the first thing he said when he showed up was "You're taller than me, I cannot date you". At that point I knew I should have just walked back into my house, but "be patient" I said to myself. 

All through the date this guy talked none stop, right in my face, with breath that smelled like week-old unwashed vagina and onions. 

Lord I wanted to gag!

When he wasn't talking about himself, he was bashing people that live on "the island" and doing the 'God forbid, I can never live on the island' talk. He just wouldn't stop; "The people that live on the island are fake". "The people that live on the island are poor but pretending". "The people that live on the island are miserable people trying to keep up with the joneses". "I cannot date girls that live on the island, they don't have manners". "It is guys that live on the island that go to club and pop champagne on credit" etc etc etc. 

Honestly, if I could excuse myself to go to the bathroom and text and bail just like the girl in the tweet above, I would have. No lie!

I know I'm not alone, share your horrendous date stories with me! Especially those first dates and blind dates. LOL. Let's talk!

Oh btw, I kinda feel it serves that guy right. People need to stop "misrepresenting" themselves. I know we post our most flattering pictures on social media, pictures of us that sometimes look nothing like us, and that's ok. But the moment you and someone start talking with the intention of meeting, it's only fair they get to see more pictures of the real you. At least, that's what I think. So yeah *tongue out* to the guy! 😝😝😝

    1. That's derogatory to womanhood . For a self confessed feminist, I didn't expect to read this from you .

  2. My worst date experience, she was chatting on her phone all through the movie, and took home overpriced cinema drinks and snacks.

  3. "...Oh btw, I kinda feel it serves that guy right...So yeah *tongue out* to the guy!"

    Thelma...I've unfriended you...

  4. Lmao @ Memphis.

    I can't remember any in particular now, I just want to say the guy must have over done with editing his pictures.

    Lol....ko Pele.


  5. I like the babe,she get mind. I can't remember any horrendous date,maybe I need to do some thinking. BTW Thelma your description of your own date no be here Ohhh and the way his breath smells though. yuccckkkkkk.

  6. Mine... I had met him at an ATM some days before. He came with three of his friends to pick me. I wanted to bail immediately I saw his friends but I decided to give him a second chance and be cautious. Then he told me he wanted to make a quick stop at his sister's house. When we got there, he asked us to come in. I sat in there for like 30 minutes while they all spoke in their dialect. I kept asking myself what I was doing there. When we left, he took me (and his friends and sister) to a washed down place, sat by me and spent his time trying rub my back and arms while speaking the dialect with his friends and sister. I was seething with anger and tapping my leg on the floor yet still trying to be polite. I didn't even finish my drink, I told him I wanted to leave. He then drove me home (with his friends in the car). When I alighted from the car, I told him to delete my number and never call me ever again. He sent me countless messages trying to apologise. Needless to say, that was the end of it.

  7. Atleast I've not been ugly enough to be bailed out on...yet.
    Nasty experience I suppose. Wow.

    Anyways, I'm a very sensitive person so I'd notice the change in her demeanor from miles away and won't have to spend on movie tickets or other expenditure that I'm not interested in.

  8. Remember mine... i was quite young, it was a blind date. After killing myself at home, second guessing my looks and clothes, i went to meet the guy and almost fainted...still texted him after to ask if he reached home safely even when i knew in my heart of hearts it was over, didn't want him to suspect i was disappointed .After that, it was friend zone straight

  9. Whatttt!!! *week-old unwashed vagina and onions*

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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
