Diary of a single Ibo girl Part 11

I woke up with a nagging headache. The more I tried to open my eyes, the more my head ached. Then the strong smell of drugs filled my nostrils. Where am I? I asked myself. I finally managed to open my eyes, and as I struggled to sit up, I felt a firm but gentle arm trying to pull me back to the bed. Then I saw it... A drip! Yeparipa!!! I'm on drip! How I fear that shit!!! What on earth am I doing on a hospital bed? "What's happening?" I asked no one in particular. "How did I manage to be here"? Then he spoke. " Baby, please can you just relax a bit"? "You are in the hospital... You passed out". Holy shit! The slap!!! Everything started coming back to me. I looked at Mike. A little tear dropped from the tip of my eyes. " My love, I'm so sorry", he said. I saw the plea in his eyes. He was teary at this point too. Kneeling beside me he continued; "I swear on my life, this will never happen again" Ofcourse! It

8 things you must stop doing to yourself.

Image
1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. Life's too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they'll make room for you. You shouldn't have to fight for a spot. It is the people who stand by you when you're at your worst that are your true friends. 2. Stop lying to yourself. The first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest to ourselves. 3. Stop running away from your problems. It won't be easy but you need to fix them head on. You'd be surprised, some of our greatest problems end up being mirages. The closer you get, the less problematic they become. 4. Stop putting others first. The most painful thing is loving someone too much that you lose yourself in the process, forgetting how special you are. 5. Stop faking it. Someone will always be prettier, smarter, richer and younger but they'll never be you. Be yourself. Stop faking it to make it and the right people will love and

As he struggled to push me out of the way, I kept holding on tight. He finally did and walked out. I ran after him and held him on his trousers... "You'll kill me today o" I yelled. I was already bursting with emotions. The tears just needed some kind of "motivation" to flow out. I needed to cry. Truly, a hungry man is an angry man. "Infact, come and beat me already... Since you've refused to talk to me for the past 2hours" I kept nagging, and pushing him. Then he chuckled. "Eeehhh... You are looking for someone to kill you" he lamented. ... Please leave me alone" he continued. By this time, I was getting really aggressive. I kept pushing and hitting him. I knew I was being childish and silly but I just couldn't stop. I needed him to pet me at least. Then Gbam!!! The slap came like a recycled thunder. It was the kind of slap that usually came with free delivery nationwide. I felt "virtue" leaving my body. Then th

After 12years with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie finally files for divorce

Image
Hollywood actress  Angelina Jolie  has filed for divorce from her husband Hollywood actor  Brad Pitt , according to  TMZ . In the divorce papers filed on Monday Jolie said it was due to irreconcilable differences, and is asking the court to grant her full custody of their six children. The couple who have been together since 2004 married in August 2014. It is believed that Jolie is filing for divorce due to Pitt’s relationship with their children, and not because of a ‘third person’. Sources say the actress got tired of Pitt’s usage of weed, alcohol consumption, and his anger issues. Jolie requires no spousal support, and wants full physical custody of the children, and is willing to share legal custody with Pitt.

Being in the friend zone.

Image
Being friend zoned is like sitting in front of a chef as he makes a delicious pie for you. Then at the last minute he decides that you can't have the pie. So you just sit there and stare at it. The longer you stay, the hungrier you become. The worse part is that other guys are allowed to walk up and stick their fingers in the pie, taking piece by piece of that delicious pie that was meant to be be yours. At this point, you know you should leave and forget about the pie; find something else to eat but no! Nothing could ever fill that hole in your stomach like the pie. So you hold onto hope that one day you'll at least get a taste. The friend zone is a shitty and frustrating place to be. It is more commonly experienced by men than women, mostly because of the fact that men are comfortable with being in a relationship as friends. Men are very patient. They can wait as much as it takes to get even the last piece of the pie. Being in the friend zone is like an employer turning you

Ladies: Stop doing these!!

1. Having eye lashes for months. Some girls fix lashes long enough to hang their panties. But the most annoying part is wear these lashes for weeks, running into months. This becomes an eye sore. 90 percent of girls that wear lashes don't wash their faces when taking their bath. They think facial wipes do the magic. And yet they complain about pimples. 2. Dirty undies. The dirtiest items you'll find in a girl's closet are braziers and hair nets. It usually takes months for some girls to change their bras... And more months to wash their hair nets. That's why they usually go for black colours. 3. Making silly exclamatory remarks. A guy compliments a girl "wow, you look so beautiful today" and you'll hear remarks like "awwww, like seriously"?  " are you serious"? "As in", " like duh", "Oh my Gosh". I mean what's all these?. 4. Giving green lights. You know you don't have personal interest towards

As I tried explaining to Mike, he shoved me off rudely and angrily walked away, as stranger looked on in shock. "Is he okay"? Stranger asked. If I slap you eh. How could you ask if my boyfriend was okay? " Yes, he is... He's just having a bad day", I replied defensively. As I walked back to meet Mike at the point of payment, I kept wondering what could have prompted such arrogance from him. We made payments and left. As we drove back home, we barely exchanged two words to each other. The silence was killing me. I kept stealing glances at him. His expression was "stone cold". His eyes a little bit red, his lips tucked in like he wanted to remain mute forever. In as much as his expression was supposed to terrify me, I couldn't help laughing out loud. I laughed so hard, he turned and looked at me " Is something funny"? He asked angrily "Yes o!", I replied, amidst some more laughter. " Your expression is funny..."

Mike finally asked me to be his girlfriend. The next three months into the relationship were pure bliss! Oh lawd! I felt like I was on top the world. We were seen everywhere. The affections were publicly displayed. Everything was too good to be true. Yay! My fantasy has finally become a reality. I met a couple of his friends and colleagues. "Meet my woman...", he would always introduce me. Even though I hated being referred to as "my woman", I soon fell in love with the title. Mike was always buying me gifts. We were almost together every weekend. Friday nights were always movie nights. We usually stayed indoors all Saturday... Playing indoor games like scrabble, PS, Tennis... Yes! Tennis. He had to create a tennis court in his compound because of me. And we still went to church together. He lives alone in a five bedroom tastsfully furnished duplex. I've never seen a more beautiful apartment before. Everything about this guy oozed of " Class".  He

The joy of singlehood.

Image
Sometimes it's hard being single. Yes! You hate it but that's what you are... So deal with it. Being single doesn't stop you from being wonderful. Life is a balance and while it is important to be with someone, it is exceedingly important to look out for yourself. Single is not a status. It is a word that describes a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others. It is better to be single and fins yourself than be committed and lose yourself. You can't compromise your goals or values because you are scared of being alone. A lot of people are in bad relationships in order to prevent loneliness. Isn't it more lonely to be with the wrong person? Most times, it is not the feeling of love that makes us want to be with someone; its usually the fear of being alone, or maybe we feel he/she is just good for your ego. Other times, its because we want someone that makes us feel better. Then at a point you realize you can't force consisten

Everything was happening too fast. I realized I had stopped breathing for a minute. "Let's go home" I whispered, as I tried to avoid his eyes. "Okay..." He replied huskily. We drove in silence, except for the Steve Crown's "You are great" song that played. He made for my hand but instinctively, I shoved his hand off. What's wrong with me? Why am I angry? I asked myself. We got to my house and the car came to a stop. "Have I done something wrong" he asked weakly. I didn't answer, still avoiding his gaze. "Baby, can you please look at me"? He asked. I looked at him and my heart skipped. I could tell this guy really cares about me. " No" I replied nonchalantly. I opened the door and got down from the car. As I walked towards the house, I felt him looking at me. He was still seated in the car. Then I realized I neither said goodbye nor invited him into the house. I felt a little pang of guilt. Why giving

5 types of relationship statuses.

Image
Relationships nowadays involve more than two persons of opposite sexes. It now involves one male, one female, one hoe, one side chic, one Ex trying to mess it up and one friend secretly hoping it ends. Partnership is now mistaken for relationship. People are now confused about what they are into. Below are different types of relationships to help you update your status: 1. In a relationship: This is a "serious" relationship between a two persons that love themselves. This type usually leads to marriage or... A break up. 2. It's complicated: Just as the name implies, it's actually complicated to explain but I'll try. This is usually an on/off relationship, an undefined relationship or a relationship that is over but one party has refused to let go. Other times, it starts off with "let's just be friends and see where it leads" while you continue having sex. Well, sex can be the final destination in this case. At a point of person gets so involved

8 definitive ways men lie.

Image
There's this belief that men lie more than women, but women lie better. A man is believed to lie 6 times more than a woman. An average man can tell lies like "I was with James... Oh! You can call him and ask", " What? You think I'm lying"? All in one sentence, whereas he's been with some other woman. But a woman will just tell a lie like "I'm pregnant and it's yours", and that's all. But men can tell so many lies and lie about those same lies. I really hate it when they go with this line "do you think I'm lying"? When they are actually lying!. I mean, how can someone tell so many lies and not feel bad about it?! Well, I've listed out 8 definitive ways men lie. 1. He can't look in the eyes when he lies. 2. He looks straight into your eyes and soul and lies! 3. He mutters when he lies. 4. He speaks loud and clear so the lies can register in your head. 5. His head hangs down like someone feeling guilty abo

You should see this if you are married or about to.

If you are married, divorced, separated, in an open or complicated relationship and you really need it work with your spouse/partner... You should see this movie... "WAR ROOM". Then you'll know you've all been fighting the wrong enemy! Below are some of the lessons I learned from this movie;

20 weird relationship facts nobody told you about.

I think sleeping around is the best way of meeting people... And new diseases. The best birth control is just to leave the lights on... Quote me! Women don't want to hear what you think. They want to hear what they think... In a male's voice. So men, just let Peace reign and tell them in your own voice. Some people can have a happy blind dating for years... Until they meet. Anyone who says he can see through women is missing a lot. You need to go deeper. Good girls always stay at home but bad girls go everywhere. That's mostly why the good girls remain at home for long. You'd be surprised how it costs to look cheap and simple. Men usually ease off stress by looking at big boobs. Relationships can be a handful... But that's why you've got two hands. Most people that give relationship advice are still single. Love is like a fart, if you have to force it... It becomes shit. Marriage is a relationship where one is always right and the other is... The husb

As he walked majestically towards me, I couldn't help but wonder how a fine creature like this can be so single. Is he a player? What is he really? So many questions kept popping up at the same time. I managed to shove those thoughts away as he approached me. ''Welcome to church... God bless you'', I muttered softly, smiling shyly as I ushered him onto his seat. In as much as I tried to avoid his gaze, I caught him smiling and... OH MY God!!! Did he just wink at me again? ''Precious Lord, Take my hands,  Lead me on, Let me stand...'' As I sang this song in my head, I could feel my feet go weak. This guy already has such a great hold on me and I didn't even realize that until now. All through the service, I could tell I was battling between the flesh and spirit. We kept stealing glances at each other. I could feel the admiration in his eyes, and then this mischievous smile on his face that made his lips curve sexily. Finally, the Grace

"Good evening" I replied, grinning from ear to ear. "Evening love, sorry I didn't call earlier... I was a bit caught up with something. I had to attend an official meeting...", he continued. We spoke for a few minutes. He told me how he couldn't stop thinking about me and how much he loved my smiles... Blah blah. Then finally... " What will you be doing tomorrow?" He asked. Oooops! Tomorrow? Tomorrow is Sunday... Usually a very busy day for me considering the fact that I'm a worker in Church. Yes! I'm a radical Christian. And tomorrow is Thanksgiving Service. What to do now? Should I invite him to church? Is it too early? "Errrm, I will be a little bit busy in church tomorrow" I said... "But I should be done b4 4pm" I had continued. "You know what? Why not invite me to your church... Then we can go out afterwards"? Wow! He isn't taking chances o. I was so excited. I'm not just going to be winning

I was mostly quiet throughout the rest of the drive home. I was beginning to like this dude very much already. I need to raise his curiosity more because he was becoming too comfortable with me. I didn't like it. Don't give them commitment ; it gives them satisfaction... give them hope, it keeps them wanting and waiting. That was my intention. "You are unusually quiet". He said, jolting me off my thoughts. "My head aches a bit", I replied, feigning a weak smile. " We should get you some drugs then", he said. His eyes probably searching for the nearest pharmacy. Hmmm, this guy should just calm down there o. Who takes drugs for a slight headache? Certainly not me. "No, no dear, I will be fine", I said, tapping his back. As if he had been waiting for that little gesture of tapping his back, he immediately held my hand and stroked it gently. Mr. Romantic should better hold that steering with two hands o. Me I don't want to hear stori

I didn't know if I should fume in anger or smile for joy but somehow I felt some relief that he was finally paying for the food. "Thank you", I managed to mutter. "For what"?, he asked nonchalantly. His eyes still fixed on the piece of chicken he was eating. What's wrong with this one sef? What's with the attitude? He should just park well jare. I thought to myself. " Anyways, thanks for the food. I appreciate but I have to run now". I continued. "Run to where? Who's pursuing you"? He asked, smiling sheepishly. I could feel the tone of sarcasm in his voice. "I will be your chauffeur for the rest of the day..." He continued. "That's if you wouldn't mind". He chipped in immediately, raising his eyebrows and winking at me. Oh lawd! That wink! The way his lips curves anytime he smiles just makes me want to punch him on his fine face. Yes! Punch him! Hell no! I wouldn't kiss him. " OK, I do

He kept licking his lips and rubbing his palms. And with a broad smile that exposed a perfect set of sparkling white teeth, he answered; "Well, Let me have same thing you're having". What??!! He actually made a request o. So somebody cannot play with cute boy again. He got his order and immediately he started pouncing on the food like he just made it out of a famine season. At that point, I had stopped eating. I just couldn't stop looking at this cute, hungry creature. Oh! What a pleasant sight to watch a handsome guy eat this hungrily! He noticed my amusement and shyly he spoke softly; " My name is Mike... And you are..."'? '" Pearl ", I answered. " Pleasure meeting you, Pearl", he said. "The feeling is mutual". I replied, while staring intently at him. This time he had a coy smile that I really wanted to slap off, on his face. " Pearl, why do you have this amused expression on your face"?, he contin

Relationship facts: Funny but true.

Image
Here are some funny but mostly true relationship facts to get you going. It's so great to find one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. It's sometimes called ''Marriage'' Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer with slow internet service to see how patient and tolerant they can be. If you text 'I love you ' to a person and the person writes back an emoji. No matter what that emoji is, they don't love you back. This is not true in all cases though. Some people are just too lazy to type. Love is telling someone their hair extensions are showing. If it is a long term relationship, the last people they would introduce you to would be their family. Love is the answer, but while you're waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions. Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place. The reason women will never propose is because as soon as she gets on her knees, he st

Getting over a failed relationship

Image
Sometimes it's not actually the person you miss. It's that special feeling you had when you were with them. You may think you'd never get over it but didn't you also think it would last forever? Everybody has been let down somehow, at some point in relationships. You are not alone. It's time to get up, pick up your crown and put it back up! Sometimes it's the idea of being alone that makes it difficult to move on, not because we can't do without that person. Not everything is meant to be. To love and win is the best thing but to love and lose is the next best thing because in losing, we discover who we really are and appreciate the fact that the loss of a cherished pleasure is not necessarily the loss of true happiness and well being. Everyone is allowed to be in a relationship with the wrong person, at some point. In fact, it is a mistake not to be. When things break, it's not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. It

Tips: When going on a date

Image
Eat very well before stepping out of the house. Don't think a date is an opportunity to break a fast. Try eating very well from the house so you don't go out ordering all the menu, thereby eating away your food for thought. A date must not be in a restaurant. There are nice places to hang out and talk. There are game houses, a cool garden, a cinema( I know of someone that likes the Cinema so much because of the popcorn... funny! makes me wonder if people cannot buy popcorn and eat in their houses while watching a movie). Just make it about the both of you. Always go out with some money. Whether the guy is coming to pick you up or not, always go out on a date with enough money to take care of you. You never know what could go wrong. Offer to pay for the food. This shows that you can take care of yourself. It's just a nice gesture that can be accepted by the guy or not. Trust me, you have nothing to lose. Be yourself. Don't order for a food you are not fam
