This quest to find a boyfriend won’t put me in trouble. I have been single for close to two years now and its really getting boring. Most people were beginning to say things about how it could be spiritual and all, so I decided to do everything possible to get a boyfriend at least.
I embarked on this journey by being super friendly online and even offline. After a short period I decided to restrict the super friendly mode to my online male followers (emphasis on twitter). I jumped on every guys’ tweet. I retweeted, replied, quote retweeted to get attention but nothing still happened – no man, boy or nigga entered my DM (direct message (inbox)).
After about two months I started believing the spiritual problem thing. I got so worried and prayed more and more on this issue of having a boyfriend. Every other part of my life was almost on standstill and I got irritated at everything. My prayer points changed, my outlook changed, I started losing myself and even stayed away from twitter.
Not until one evening, I got an alert indicating I have a mention from twitter. I wondered who it could be because I had no friend on twitter neither was I in any caucus. So I was very sure no one would notice my absence. I reluctantly clicked on the twitter icon on my screen expecting it to be a mention from one of these bloggers or a spam DM.
Behold! It was a real message, from a guy. I am sure you can imagine the kind of joy I felt. My face brightened up. It read “hey babe! Been a while I saw your tweet. You good?”. Boy! I zoomed his avi (avatar) noticed that he had a very cute face and beards!!! I felt lucky!. I had this instant believe that God has finally answered my prayers. We got talking and he said he would like to meet me in person. I still kept on forming hard to get but couldn’t hold that up more than a week. Remember it took like forever to get a fish in my net, so aint gonna joke around this one. Meanwhile, he told me some things about him.
He said he was a graduate and that he works with MTN. He lives alone. He also said he had a bad relationship and have been single for a year except for few flings and the likes. He told me how he picked interest in my tweet. How I would interact with everyone regardless of gender or size of follower. He told me he admired me a lot and have been crushing for a while now. He also said that bearing my absence on twitter for that short while was just him trying to hold back his emotions. He said the sweetest things and made me very happy. He never asked for my nude which I expected from the kind of gist you get to hear from guys you meet online. I was looking forward to seeing Tolani. Then finally we fixed a date for a Saturday to see a movie at Ozone and get to talk better after the movie.
I tried to look as beautiful and as simple as possible. I finally got to see this cutie of mine. He wore a dark blue jean, a red T-shirt and flip-flops. We hugged, exchanged pleasantries and moved into the cinema hall. I got there a bit late. I enjoyed his choice of movie, who wouldn’t? It was “We are the Millers”. I laughed all through the movie. After the movie, we went to the 2nd floor of the building and settled in at Chicken Republic. He asked what I wanted and went to get it for me. Perfect gentleman right? We talked, laughed, held hands and all.
It was soon time for us to leave. I expected this guy to walk towards the car park to get his car or something but we stood at the entrance still holding my hands. He then asked, “How are you going babe?”
His question brought me back from my thoughts and I replied “I will just get a cab, thanks to Fashola, no byke for me. I so miss bikes” .
“A Pretty princess shouldn’t be hopping bikes dear, thanks to Fashola”, he said as he planted a kiss on my chin.
I blushed. I stopped a cab and was doing the negotiation while I noticed him go for his wallet. I was supper happy. Meeting a handsome gentleman isn’t easy these days. Just as the cab was about moving, he handed my cab fare to me, saying I should pay the cab guy myself to avoid funny attitudes. I smiled and we said our goodbyes.
As the cab moved, a strange thought came to mind and I told the cab man to pull over in front. I told him to wait so I could watch my new found boo leave. Just then I saw a guy step towards him from the building, they did the men shake and I noticed he hailed him somehow. My curiosity increased, as I watched them head back into the building. I quickly gave the cab man the money he gave me and followed them up. It was easier for me because they didn’t use the lift. They kept chatting, laughing and took left. I followed carefully and got a bit confident when I realized they were engrossed in the gist and laughter that they wouldn’t look back.
I followed my new found boo back up to chicken republic and watched him go into the concession stand. I stood with some guys hanging around with a forceful smile and there and then, I saw my MTN working class boo step out again but now changed to his service wear. He’s actually an attendant at chicken republic.
I was so surprised and felt the tears roll down my eyes. I didn’t say a word and was glad he didn’t see me. I kept wondering why he would tell such lie about him. What other thing was a lie and the plenty gist and laughter with his friend(I suppose) was over my foolishness I guess? I was so confused and hurt that I remembered my ordeal in my last relationship. I blocked him, deleted his number and never picked any of his calls till he stopped calling. I don’t know what his conclusion would be about me but I careless. He should have been sincere. The last thing is need in my life is a catfish
Well, it’s in the past though, Here I am, sitting all alone and thanking God for all the way long.
Thought to share the story with you all, I am happy in my relationship now and might tell you all how I met him….. That’s if he (my boyfriend) agrees to that. I remain anonymous.
