The Stupid Things I Did For Love (Naija Single Girl).

This particular guy has my mumu button.
I’ll probably end up writing a whole book if I want to write about us so I’m just going to summarize 
as much as I can.
I met him in my mid teens and I told him I loved him that same day, that was in response to him using the L word on me. He was on a short holiday that period and we sat under the moonlight all night. I wasn’t living with my parents then. We kissed for about four hours and I slept in his arms on the bench outside, it was my second kiss and it made up for the shitty experience my first kiss was.
I was in love.
He told me he was going to marry me and I believed him.
He told me he was a secondary virgin and his first sexual experience was with a girl who raped him in his 100L, I believed him.
He asked if I was going to give him my virginity when I am old enough, I replied in affirmative.
He told me he is the best male dancer in Nigeria , I believed him. I would later realise the only dance he could dance is atilogu.
I use to sell the meat in my afternoon soup to my elder sister for N10, then when the N10 sums up to 
a hundred naira, I would add all of it and buy N100 recharge card for him.
He promised to buy me a Nokia GSM phone when I graduate from the university. Up till now nothing. I would have gotten white hairs from waiting.
Now back to the stupid things I did.
-I gave up my sleep completely. 12am to 4:30am were strictly for our midnight calls.
-He told me to watch porn, that it is good for me. And I should bring my questions to him for answers during midnight calls. I thought it was true love.
-The time he came to see me in my city, he said I should sneak him to my room so we can be alone together. I told him me, my brothers and sisters shared one room. We strolled round the city and ended up in one local bar where we were the only customers, he bought malt for N70 with N1000 and when the old lady who owned the bar went out to look for change, he said, “let him feel you with my fingers before she returns.” She came in faster than he anticipated, caught us in the act and chased us away from her bar. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
-I saved all my ‘pocket’ money for seven months and used all of it to fund my transportation to see him in another city for a whole day. My parents were not aware of my whereabouts. He introduced me as his ‘small friend’ to his friends.
-I stole my dad’s half bottle of perfume and wrapped it as a gift for him during Valentine. Instead of him to graciously accept, he asked why the perfume is half.
-I cooked palm oil rice and took it to him when I travelled to see him. He said the rice is nice but why didn’t I add iced fish.
-He is the one that ‘grounded me’ until I thought I was pregnant. When I couldn’t stop panicking he sent me MTN N400 Recharge card for abortion.
These are the ones I can remember for now. Funny enough I still love him to this day. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
So yeah, this is our topic for the week. What are the most stupid things you have done for love? It could me the sum of many stupid things or one big stupid thing. No shame here.

Oh wow. The hilarity. So I culled this from Naija Single Girl's blog  and it really gave me a good laugh this tense Monday morning. Made me remember all the stupid things I did. I'm sure it made you remember yours too. SPILL!!!



  1. Omg NSG is hilarious. I'm in love with her

  2. lol @ why is the perfume half?
    Cant blame the nigga. Really tho...why give him half perfume as a gift?

    Geez. I havent done any stupid thing in the name of love. Im gangster like that. I love with sense.


  3. I left Abuja to camp in a guy's house in Lagos. I was meant to go for Farafina trust workshop. After doing all the wahala on application stages, I got it and never went. Me and guy never did anything even though we dated for 3yrs. I don't know why his mum didn't knock sense into our brains. She kept calling me our wife and taking me places.

    My mom found out and I got the beating of my life.

  4. I haven't done anything stupid in the name of love but I remember many years ago being proposed to with no ring except a plate of rice and juice at Tantalizers. We were less than 20 years old and planning to get married whilst still struggling to pass jamb.SMH

  5. Yeah I have done a lot of stupid things for love,
    Gave my first ex bf my fridge while in Skool,till date the idiot never returned it, told me it was seized by the police and I regretted ever loving him.
    Since then I love with my head and not my heart.

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I don't know why this was the funniest to me. I need to understand the story behind the police seizing someone's fridge.

  6. Lol, this is very funny, I don't think I've done any stupid thing for love but I think I might have made some people do some really stupid things in the olden days.

  7. "This particular guy has my mumu button". I read this first line and went "tell me about it!" In my head. Reading further though, It became clear that I actually know NOTHING about this definition of it, because Mba! no particular guy has ever really had that mumu button of mine.
    Most stupid things I can remember doing for love is loaning out my hard earned money and never getting it back , and sex without protection.
    I was born cynical to the man and woman kind of love, ever suspicious and ever guarding against being taken advantage of.

  8. In fact this topic just got me kinda annoyed, reminds me of when I was a teenager. Stupid teenage love, hiss.

  9. 12:30 - 4:30am midnight calls back then

    And in recent times, talking till 2am on a weekdayπŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ

    I will now wake up grumpy and angry at the world as if nah demsend me message! Chai! Never again mehn!
    I'm sure my heart is doing *yinmu* for meπŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

    1. Awwww. Someone's in a relationship. 😊

  10. 12:30 - 4:30am midnight calls back then

    And in recent times, talking till 2am on a weekdayπŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ

    I will now wake up grumpy and angry at the world as if nah demsend me message! Chai! Never again mehn!
    I'm sure my heart is doing *yinmu* for meπŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

  11. Nope.. Never done any stupid thing for love.. too cynical, too proud..

  12. Tooo much sense cannot allow me be a mumu for love, that's not necessarily a good thing.

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!

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 fiancΓ©? 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.
