Forward ever

Last week, I got chatting with my ex-boyfriend. Actually he was the first guy I ever dated, and we parted ways because of many issues including the fact that he said he would not marry until he was 40 something (and he's just a year older than me), and I could not wait for that.

Anyway, there were other things, other principles I held dear that I refused to give in to, like wearing makeup and dressing up fancy ALL THE TIME ( I didnt see the use of that because I wanted my dressing up to be for special occasions as that way it will be appreciated). I digress. My apologies.

We parted ways (I broke up with him - on the internet, and before the comments start flowing in, I have apologized for being so wicked and we are over that) and he didnt speak to me for two years. We are friends now. I have my Vicky and he told me has someone special.

In our conversation, he asked me a question - he said something like this: "I hope u still are not having that same mindset you had?" When I asked him what he meant he didnt reply. Just up and left.

Well I have my answer - YES I STILL HAVE THE SAME MINDSET.

Yes I still want to be a virgin when I marry.

Yes I still want to work when I have the children.

Yes I still want more than two children.

And Yes I still want to work globally, and not just in Nigeria.

Yes - being accepted by my significant other's family still matters a lot to me.

Yes - Being able to express himself to me is also very crucial to our relationship.

Yes - I still think God can be the centre of a relationship.

Yes - I still believe that I can be myself and be loved by him, just as I am. No questions asked. He loves me hairy, chubby, and casual, and he goes into hypnotic mode when I doll up as well. I dont have to change who I am (simple, humble and sincere babe any day anytime) to fit into a picture of what his perfect babe should be like - cos I am already perfect the way God made me.

And finally, YES - I still feel both of us can have close friends of the other sex with out it jeopardizing our relationship. I trust him and he trusts me. No jealousy whatsoever. No surprise visits to check up on each other.

I just wonder where I would have ended up if I had not taken the decision to end it with Mr. Perfect. I thank God for the strength.


ALL YOU LADIES OUT THERE - There is a guy for you somewhere, and he will take you as YOU ARE.

He wont turn up his nose when he sees you in your houserobe, and he wont complain that you didnt do your hair every weekend.

He wont put stress on you to be another person. He would want to know the real person inside, and will want you to meet his family as early as possible.

He wont hide you away, but will want his mother to have a good look at you.

And even if she doesnt approve, he will still love you anyway.

He will always look out for you, listen to all your nonsensical talk, and want to help you out financially.

He wont push you to sleep with him but let you be the one to push for intimacy.

He is waiting for you....Pray he finds you and remains restless until he does, and until he proposes ( I did that prayer!).

Forward ever!

Well this long list of requirements certainly has some points that CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be compromised. Like what i call PMS(Pre-Marital Sex)-it really behaves like its real life counterpart Premium Motor Spirit, It has burned some pple to death and ruined numerous promising relationships and potential Heroes!!!So On those points i agree with you. the others i think can be bent(Please dont come for me for saying that.

EKITI KETE

What is this wahala now? Why must such a tiny state in Nigeria cause so much wahala? It is not even in the center, it is not even an original state but a cut out of another. I really dont understand why every newspaper feels they must print something about Ekiti on the front page every single day. And this has been the case since it was created. The latest sensation is the election rerun that even our busy President had to take time to go and see. I mean, you would think with all the monitoring eyes, everything would run smoothly but no, another twist in the saga has been announced.
The outside world thinks we should be ashamed of ourselves. I a just praying that it does not get bloody, and that Ekiti will stop trying to keep attention all the time.

Am not dissing Ekiti o[that was for Vicky who will soon be my husband, so he'll not quote me after the wedding - he's from Ekiti :D]. Am just saying they should behave themselves.

Hey Mum

Hey mum,
I just wanted to thank you.
I thank you for deciding to get married - some women didn't see the need.
I thank you for deciding to have kids - some women didn't want to mess up their figures.
I thank you for going through discomfort all through the pregnancy.
For going through all the pain.
I will be forever grateful to you for allowing God to use you to bring me to this world.
But that's not all.
You didn't give me away - some women did that to their kids.
So I thank you for putting your needs, your wants, your career aside, to raise me.
I thank you for taking the time to teach me the Lord's way.
I thank you for loving me with all my faults.
I thank you for ensuring that I had the best you could afford.
You are a mother, and blessed are you amongst all women.
I LOVE YOU

Plans List?Carried out or not?

Have you ever planned the next year of your life and then after a few months, realized that nothing went according to plan? Well it happened to me. Back in October, I knew where I wanted to be in a year's time: I was going to be married, with my husband and I studying in a foreign country for masters degrees. We had applied and then things began to happen.
First my Dad felt I was rushing to get married (Never mind that he'd insisted when I was 17 that by the time I reach my age, I should have given him 2 grandkids for him to spoil). Then my acclaimed alma mater university refused to send my transcripts to the schools I had applied to. As if that was not enough, I had not taken my TEOFL exam which was required to apply.

Its now June. I lost the admissions because my transcripts never arrived even though my university claims they have sent it. My father has finally agreed to let me get married BUT at his own convenient time, and his own way (he has just declared he doesnt want us …
