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. 


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˜‹

    1. You're still anon, please go. No cheers for you.

    2. Thanks for sharing 😁😘😍😍😍

  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 :)

    1. loved your story. No apologies needed for the long story. Chrisyinks.

    2. Beautiful story.... please do not apologize.
      We've missed you. So our baby has gbaburo! Waaawu! Awesome!

  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
    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. :).

  15. no story to tell, still waiting on God hopefully something will happen this year..Liawn

  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

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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…
