How We Met...




Guys, you all know what this month is right? It's none other than the 2nd month of the year, the first month of the year when capitalists smile, the month that some ladies swoon and others may sob. It's the month of love. Yes, in a few days we'll be celebrating VALENTINE!

I don't care what you say, I think Valentine's Day should be a holiday. Don't ask me why. 

In the spirit of love I'll be talking about love a lot this month and right about now, I'd like to talk about how we met our lovers/baes/partners/boyfriends-girlfriends/spouses. And not only that, but how we made the move from friends to lovers. 


I would like to tell you how I met this really awesome, amazing, stubbornly optimistic, brilliant, inspiring, generous, hilarious, fascinating guy I'm dating, but unfortunately I cannot remember. 

Weird, right? 

I know. 

I know I got acquainted with him when I was about 19 or 20 or 21 and then I suddenly started hearing from him many many years later thanks to facebook. We still didn't become friends until much later and then he started to toast me. I didn't take him seriously as I was dating someone else but on the day I snooped and found out that the guy I was dating was engaged, had done his introduction and his lady was heavily pregnant, I needed a place to drink the pain away. 😊

And so I remembered this guy who'd been on my case like kilode. I called him to please get me a room somewhere very nice, I needed to be alone somewhere I could cry in peace. 

LOL. 

Well he got the room and I ended up not crying much because he didn't get the memo that I wanted to be alone πŸ˜’, and what was the end of one relationship was the start of another. ❤️❤️❤️


So that's my story people. Please share yours. How did you meet? Was it online, at a wedding, through a friend, at work, on the road, in church...? How did you start dating? Was it love at first sight, were you friend-zoned, did you snatch πŸ™ˆ ...? I am sooooooo eager to hear what you ALL have to say. And if you're single right now, let's hear how you met and started dating your last love

If you've never been in a relationship, well read, enjoy and be inspired by the stories you read. 

Everybody must talk, or else... πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‹

  4. I've dated 7 so far. 3 sweet ladies, one ok, one pimp, 2 terrible. Surprisingly all this "love talk" doesn't really get to me when I've healed/moved on. And since I've moved on, no need for how-we-met from me, abi? Lol.

  6. When I turned 26 I felt in my spirit that I was ready for marriage and all those unserious boys I was dating wasn't it. So I went away for a few days on my own to this like convent place to spend time with God. I did a dry fast for 4 days and all I did was pray that God I'm ready and I don't want to miss it. I told God that when I meet him I want to know straight away and I want him to know too.... Days after I got back home I was invited to a worship programme while worshiping a random man came to me, he said he was the Manning the doors but God showed him a vision of me and said there is something I'm praying for and that by the end of the year I will see his hands cus he has answered. I was shocked firstly because I have never received word like this before and secondly in England ppl don't generally do this, every one minds their business lol. He said to prove that it's God after I have received the answer I will see him again. Mind you this was November so I was wondering how I will be meeting my husband before the end of the year. Anyway u forgot about the whole thing. Few weeks later I went to choir rehearsal in church as usual. And 20 min into this rehearsal this random guy walked in with a guitar on his back.... The SECOND I laid my eye on him I just knew it was him. Honesty I didn't even fancy him but I knew would marry him. I immediately messaged my friend and said ' I have met my husband lol" she said what's his name and I said I don't know lool.

    When I got home that night I couldn't think of anything else but him...but on the other hand I didn't fancy him it was weird. Anyways I prayed and said if it's really him lord let him come to my parents house for lunch the next day..I knew it would just have to be God cus we didn't know each other so no way that could have happened. He came for the service the next day and we just kept staring at each other. He played the guitar beautifully. After the service my mum went to him praising him and said infact you are coming to my house for lunch!!!!! I never told her anything!!!! Well that's how it's all started. All this while I didn't know he was also feeling the same way and things he had asked God for were clicking into place within those few days ( story for another day lol).

    The following month in December I was going to pick a ticket for a concert I was going to and I saw that man again randomly! The one that gave the prophesy! I was in shock and ran to me but he didn't even remember me lol.
    11 months later we got married married and 4 years down the line we have 2 beautiful baby girls! A home and many tremendous blessings. God is definitely the greatest matchmaker...... So sorry for the long story :)

  14. We went to the same secondary school and Uni but kept missing each other I.e the year he finished sec. School was the year I came to the school for ss2-3.
    Went to the same university but on different campuses but I knew his brother who was 2 years below me in sec.school.
    Around the same time I went through a really bad breakup in May 2016, he sent me a message on facebook (typically I tend to ignore these type of message) but I was bored and needed someone to talk to.
    We started talking daily for not less than 1hr from May up until now. I him for 6 months but he was persistent and he became more than a friend.
    He was outside Lagos for work in dec. But on my birthday he came down to Lagos with the first flight and showed up at my doorstep in the morning which meant a lot cause I had bein sulking that he wasn't going to be in town for that day.
    Long story short...we started dating towards the end of dec and I don't regret it. :).

  16. We met at a variety night on the corridor and he became enchanted by me. Lol. He asked me out for more than a year and I kept turning him down until I decided he was too persistent and what could I lose anyway. He even asked me to a dinner one time like that, I turned him down and ended up going with a senior, he was so pained lol. Anyway we've been dating for more than 2 years now. Yippee. And everybody that bothered to miss me I've missed you too, I'm currently going through a phoneless period. Iyanu
