“Young,Female and Dating
So i’ll be bringing you stories of my beautiful dating experiences.
Honestly the only way to make it through this dating scene is to have fun with it. Hopefully your readers can help me decide if to “bust it” or “2nd date”
So as a young naija babe in my early 30s, my family and friends and mildy (friends) and seriously (mom and aunts) concerned about my single status. They have all taken it upon themselves to intercede on my behalf.
So no surprises when I get a call from one of my correct married female friends. I recently convinced her to join a gym and start getting her workout on. I mean this is the fitfam era, get fit or die trying. She’s like “girrrrrrl I have found your boo oh”.
I’m bumming on my couch and ask for more gist.
So this is how it goes
– Dude comes over to her, trying to make conversation with intention to toast
– Friend laughs and tells him shes a married woman but she has a cute,intelligent, single friend
– Dude is like for real?, let me see.
-She’s like nah i’ll vet you first before moving fwd.
– Friend collects his name and number for vetting process.
I’m like eheeeeen. Na so you carry my matter for head. Sha she does preliminary vetting on google (Name, marital status, location, degree and work) and they check out. She asks if she can pass on my number. As I am learning to be open and less “PICKY” , i give the green light.
My friend comes back to me that he’ll rather meet in person first, when am I free for a date. Date is set, we are having light dinner and drinks after work. Interesting though he wants my friend to be present.
So we agree if he’s an ass we’ll both leave him at dinner, if he’s cool she’ll make an excuse to leave early.
It’s D-day. Me and my girl get to the restaurant at 7.24pm and 7:29pm respectively for a 7:30pm date. Oga is no where to be found. We order drinks, chit chat, and still no oga. Being the foodies we are, we order our food and begin chopping. Food was amazingly delicious. Still no oga.
My friend sends a message asking dude where he is. He responds saying he’s stuck at work, the person relieving him from his shift called out and they are trying to find a replacement. (Calm down, you saw shift and want to abuse him. He’s a medical worker in a hospital).
Sha 2 hrs later we have finished eating, gisted with our lovely waiter, listened in on an aristoz convo (dude looked like the babes grandfather) and laughed at another convo where dude was trying to wiggle his way out of friend zone, still Mr. Gym is still missing.
As we are hugging and doing the double cheek kiss to say our goodbyes, Mr gym calls. He is finally off. Meet us here, meet us at another spot closer to home or goodnight everyone. He wants to go home and shower.
He asks if we can meet up the next day. I tell him no. I have other plans. My friend told him he’s a joker.
So people should I bust this guy? Or give him a 2nd chance to redeem himself.
– Yes his absence was work related, but his poor communication skills can manifest himself in other annoying ways. So let’s hear it……..”
