Chronicle Of Blog Visitor Narrative......

Hmmmmmmmm......







STAND ALONE NARRATIVE....

MARRYING SOMEONE WHEN THERE IS NO LOVE...

Hello Stella,

Hope this meets you well? Thanks for the good work you do.

A number of us have learnt valuable life lessons from this blog and as such we are wiser for it.

I'm writing to gather opinions from the SDK family.

A little background to my story, I'm the first child and first girl in a family
of 4 girls and such my parents were quite strict with our upbringing.

Being the first girl, mine was a bit worse though I now understand better as to why they were strict. Over the years, most of my suitors have been non ibos and thus , my mother would of course not quite agree to the union due to the usual inter tribal excuses. I turn 32 in a few months and I have 2 suitors , one is coincidentally Ibo and the other from Delta state(Non Ibo speaking part).



The truth is I have no deep feelings for any of these men but I am considering them at this juncture.


The one who is Ibo is from one of the Eastern states and is doing well for himself as he's a professional in his field and
is well established likewise myself. We both earn over N400,000 monthly. We both met during our internship days about 5 years ago and he says he's always liked me but as at last year hes been pushing for something serious as we had been friends over the years.

Here lies the challenge, He grew up and schooled in the East and as such can be very Igbotic with his mannerisms, accent and intonations and all(NB: I am Igbo myself) while I've spent all my life in the West.


Asides the "igbotic" nature which shows up from time to time, hes a great person and is very focused which is one of the qualities I admire
I'm usually drawn to dark skinned men as I'm very light skinned, but hes also light skinned. Maybe that's one of the reasons I'm not exactly drawn to him. I have asked him to give me some time to process things and see if we can actually date and eventually marry as the goal for him is marriage.


For BVs who didn't marry people they were really drawn to from the onset, please did it eventually work out in the end? Did they become crazy about them much later? Did the love grow?

The only problem here is that the attraction is not huge however due to age I'm beginning to consider it. He treats me well and respects me. Do I wait to meet someone I'm really attracted or just work with this guy?


Part of my worry includes the fact that would I be able to be intimate with someone i'm not crazy about?. For Judgemental Judy's and all...I'm yet to "Gbensh" as I'm still a Virgin, Team Mermaid all the way!!!.

Kindly share with the family. Ill be in the comment section.
Thanks a lot.


*Hmmm this is a tough one but what i do know is that women always have this special love for the first man that Gbenshes them,however my dear if you do not love him,your first experience will be messed up and you will never enjoy it until your feelings grow for him....Please if you do not have any feelings for him..if there r no butterflies in your belly and wetness in your kinikan when you think of him...please think again before you do this...Marrying for marrying sake is a big mistake!!!

      ...with over 400k monthly, you can afford exotic restaurants & lounges where you'd meet loads of elegant guys to hobnob with... you'd most likely fall in love there even if the floor wouldnt be slippery or banana peels to step on.
      So far the desired isnt available & the available has refused to be the desired, i suggest you say No to both suitors in different languages, & dont dust those cobwebs from your V for anyone you dont consider worth giving access.
      I understand another fear you have.... giving birth to an albino, since youre both light skinned, i understand my dear, me sef go fear, come lemme hug you!!!

    4. I wasn't physically attracted to my husband when I met him. Not like he was ugly or fat. But he just was not my spec. Plus he didn't know how to dress.
      He wasn't handsome but he just knew the right things to say. You won't believe I slept with this guy on our very first date. We would go out on a date and he will spend the whole date looking at me. Like can we just finish up and go home.
      Attraction and chemistry is very important in a marriage.
      I don't even know what sort of advice to give. Because sometimes you meet some handsome men and still yet no chemistry.

  3. At 32, you are still young and will still meet different men, please don't marry for marry sake. I got married at the age of 35 to my husband and i have never regretted it. Though still looking up to God for the fruit of the womb and i believe God will do it.

    Just calm down, your prince charming will soon come along.

    Best of luck

    1. Omah start taking prenatal vitamin to reset your hormones. Unless there’s an underlying issues with your reproductive system, then I’ll say get further treatment. However if your reproductive system is fine but not getting pregnant, definitely get started on taking prenatal vitamin asap! And continue to pray of course. Good luck.

    3. Anon 15:41 please get magnesium capsules, they worked for me.
      I used combination of folic acid and magnesium capsule for 2wks and conceived... even though i was in my mid twenties, i suffered high level prolactin, irregular menstruation etc. Please give it a try, it's not expensive, and there are no side effects.
      Please watch what you eat; your diet is very very important at this point. More vegetables/fruits, less fatty foods.
      Exercise is good too. Please try to get up and walk, uou can start with 5mins walk and consistency will take you to a fit place (please note that fit doesn't mean skinny)
      Prayers: pray fervently and worry less about conception, God will show up for you. Amen

    5. I had the gaga love at a very mature age. Chai! I was wondering why? I thought I was too old for such, but it ended up being sweet torture. It didn't work. So instead I will advise poster to pray and look for the inner qualities, outward manifestations and hygiene. Good luck. Don't force yourself you hear?

  6. Truth be told forget about all these being drawn butterfly thing. marriage is more about getting your due respect and having someone you can respect in return. If this is established I candidly advise you to take the guy serious. You can polish him to your taste with time.

    2. Marriage ain’t no joke26 January 2019 at 16:13

      So why exactly can’t she kiss him good morning? Won’t he be her husband? That butterfly in the stomach does not a good marriage make! Trust me on that....
      You need a man that is focused, has a plan for you and your family, honest and hardworking, above all loves God and loves you. That is the bedrock of a great marriage.

      After all, many ladies don’t fall in love with our men at first sight. Some even despise the men when they starting toasting them but spending time with a person makes you see beyond their faults and then begin to like them..

      Take even school boyfriend/girlfriend, sometimes the chic didn’t even like the guy at all but the guy keeps hanging around doing stuff for her before you know it she falls in love.... and will start saying all great things about that same guy she couldn’t stand before

      . While some girls see a guy and have butterfly straightaway and clings on, even when the guy treats them like thrash still calling it love!

      There are no formula to these things..
      Oh and physical preferences combat change as you mature because you see beyond the physical.

      I would say give your self 6 months with him ( no sex, no ‘I don’t like this or that’ thoughts) and see where you heart stands in 6 months.

      Oh, and Everybody has accent. As one of my friend says she almost missed a great man because she was saying accent , accent ...lol..now she no de hear the accent sef and they are doing sooooo good!

My dear, if he is god fearing, respects and loves you and you are at peace in your heart with him coupled with the most important fact that you carry God along, I believe you're on the right path. Wasn't so much in love with my hubby while we were dating but I knew he was for me. Now ehen! I am sooooo soooo in love with him and I deeply appreciate him not cos of cash etc but how this man treats me. My dear pray about it, its well

  10. Poster never you settle for just anything cos age is not on your side, I feel you can give this guy some time, study him, watch him well, spend more time with him, please never you give him the cookies πŸͺ jar till you say I do.
    Your complain about him is cod you do not feel anything for him, if you are madly in love with someone even when someone has follow come mouth and body odor you will never see it or feel. It. You will be blind in love.

    Keep this two guys, be friends with them, never you rush into marriage, take your time, marrying the right person matters than the age you marry.

  17. I beg you in the name of God that created you; do NOT marry a man you don't love, oh. Leave all the people saying "love will grow". I grew up in an environment I won't wish on anybody. I don't know why my parents married, but if pretending was an Olympics sport, my parents would have been Nigeria's only hope for a gold medal. My father is late, but my mother is still BITTER till today. I still hear her refer to things that happened more than 20yrs ago, that my father did. She says it was such bitterness as if it just happened. And because I don't want any unnecessary problems in my own marriage, I don't tell her anything about my husband. Because I can't vouch for the purity of her advice when it comes to marriage. All these "love will grow" people will destroy your destiny. When my husband asked me out, he said he had liked me for a long time. I honestly hadn't noticed. But I know I couldn't marry someone I don't love. I just told God, "I'm tired of entering senseless relationships. Please, if this is the man You created for me, make me love him. And do it in a way that I'll know it is You." By the time it happened, I had actually forgotten the prayer I had prayed - I asked my husband if he took my name and picture anywhere to influence me. I wasn't sleeping with him, collecting money or gifts from him or doing anything that can create feelings that will confuse me. Cos I'd been in relationships before, I knew the love for this one was very different. Don't allow pressure from anywhere to put you in a bad marriage, oh. I married at 32. Many around me married in their 20s. I'm one of those that'll say my marriage isn't an achievement because I know deep down, I didn't work for it. This one is God that gave me.

    1. That’s the point right there- you didn’t love him at first. He loves you first. Pursued you... and then the love grew. That’s still love growing... she needs to give the man a chance without any prejudices. What if it is the same with her? God sends her this man and she uses excuses to send him away because she didn’t feel butterflies in her stomach at first or because she’s known him all these while and never felt a thing for him? What then?

      Delete
    2. Story. Is he the only man that pursued me? There was even a other one pursuing me around the same time; I don't know where he showed up from. Also saying he had liked me for a long time. He looked like he had more to offer than my husband. But after I prayed, I developed an unnatural disgust for him. Coupled with horrible dreams. In fact, I call him "the perfect counterfeit". Knowing what I know now, I strongly believe that Satan specially packaged the second one to ruin my life.

      The love I have for my husband did not grow. It hit me like a truck. The only person more surprised than me, was him. It's something you're nurturing that can grow. And it's something that exists, that you can nurture. When I said yes, I wasn't confused or unsure. And my butterflies happened BEFORE I agreed to marry him. Or else he would have been on his own; I have heard women cheat on husbands they don't love with men they love. I never cheated on anyone, so I don't think I'm the cheating type. But I wasn't about to test that theory in marriage. So, I prayed - if the love and butterflies didn't come, I would never have married my husband. I asked God to make it clear. The OP is clearly confused, hence her chronicle. Even when you're sure it's God that sent you message, you can see some things show up and make you shake. How much more when you're doing "what if" from the start? If you see someone in a terrible marriage eh, you will advise people to be sure they have heard God in triplicate before they even venture into marriage.

      Delete
    3. But You started in your first post that you did not love him ‘at first’. It was after praying, that the live hot you like a brick. How are you different from the chronicle poster?
      She is seeking clarity
      This man has always liked her
      She has 2 men in pursuit of her affections has wait, is it because she came to ask for public opinion but you prayed by yourself?

      Delete
    4. It has nothing to do with love, she has an unforgiving spirit. I know someone like that. She remembers stuff that happened when she was a kid.

      Delete
    5. @Anon 22:15 - Yes, she has a spirit of unforgiveness. But there's also lack of love - which she admitted to me one time. That was the day I knew that I could never ever tell her anything about my husband, if I don't want to end up divorced. Cos I have seen my mother escalate small issue into something that looks like WW2. And the way she talked about not loving my father was also with bitterness. She sees my father in every man except my brothers - which is very ironic, cos they're his carbon copy. One looks and behaves like him, the other looks like him but has her bitter heart. The sad part is she expects any woman who wants to marry my brothers to do for them, what she told me never to do for my own husband. Lol. No be only man mama dey cause problem for marriage, oh. I don't know what her problem is, but I'm not going to allow anybody scatter my marriage for me - tomorrow, they'll say it's ancestral curse that's making women in a family not to marry. All the women in my family of my mother's generation, as I speak not one is married. Some have never been married. Some married the way my mother did. Some had children for more than one man and at the end of it, left abi were left. They're all very dedicated to their religions and churches - from the Catholic to the Pentecostal to the ones going to juju that they think nobody knows. I'm not saying ancestral curses don't exist but there are things you see and you jejely respect yourself. My father's side, the same thing. Marriages crashing left, right and centre. Male and female. It's my generation - so, me and very few of my cousins whose marriages are not broken. But marriages always start to shake whenever any of our mothers come close. It's as if they had meeting cos we all start hearing about what our dead fathers did. Some of these things, we saw them happen so it's not like they're all lying. But there's nobody in my family that can swear they saw a healthy, loving marriage modelled for us. It's not from my mouth that any cousin of mine will hear, "Your mother will destroy your marriage"; anybody whose marriage isn't important to him or her, should put the words of their bitter mother over common sense. I didn't marry a replica of my father. TBH, the only similarity between my husband and my father is that they both dress well. They're definitely not the same man, so why will I allow anyone to pour their frustration of what my father did or didn't do on my husband? Frustration they didn't have liver to pour on my father when he was alive? It's inside my own marriage they want to come and grow liver? No, please. Don't get me wrong - my mother and my aunts are very industrious, so career & business advice can be taken from them. But they're my proof of "marry someone you already love".

      Delete
    6. @ Anon 21:39 - The OP kinda knows the men, in that she talks to them. I didn't really know any of the men pursuing me. I had met them but as teenagers or children, so not the versions of them that were showing up to propose. I'm only mentioning two but they were more. I don't know what happened; one second, I was very single then my husband approached me. And as I was still waiting on God, these other ones started to pop up.

      I can't marry more than one man. I have a background in Family Law - there are cases you see that will scar you, cos you'll see the real definition of "The heart of wo/man is desperately evil." I also come from a family where marriages shake and scatter like air that other people are breathing. Even the ones that stay together, the hatred they have for each other. I actually used to pray that my parents would get divorced and leave each other alone; it was that bad. But outsiders didn't know cos my parents were church people and very respected.

      My dear, my husband knows I love him but that it's not something he did oh. He always says, "It's God" cos it's true. With what I saw growing up and the job I went and entered, there was no way I could risk entering marriage without God speaking, oh. I'd been in relationships before my husband where the love grew, or I "fell in love". The day I prayed about my husband was the day he approached me. I will never forget; I told God that morning that I was tired of entering places I shouldn't be. Less than 2hrs later, my husband came. And I said, "God doesn't answer so quick. God, if this is You..." When I discovered I loved my husband, it was like I'd known, recognised and loved him from another lifetime before.

      Delete
    7. Also @Anon 23:19 - that a man or woman has always liked someone, means nothing. Even you, can you marry all the people who have ever liked you? Do you know why they like her? Is it not on this blog that someone said she ran from her ex that wanted her to do blood oath cos he went somewhere and they told him her future is bright and she will help him rise? Why won't a man like that kind of person whose future he has gone to check? As you are, don't people do things for you but you don't really know why? Some people can see what you don't see, and that's what they're reacting to.

      I didn't say someone shouldn't ask for advice, nobody is an island. But there are things only God can tell you. I remember the perfect counterfeit because of how eager he was. And I told God, "I can only see what all these men have chosen to show me. But You created all of them, so You know them. Show me what I'm supposed to see about each of them."

      The perfect counterfeit started to unravel. Apart from the nasty dreams I suddenly started having, the idiot called me one day and confessed that he took my name and picture (from Facebook) to his pastor "to pray that my heart will be turned to him away from every other man, cos I must be his wife". His pastor told him to leave me alone, cos if he needs to pray that kind of prayer when I'm not even married to him, it means I'm someone else's wife. That what he's doing is witchcraft, and they don't do or encourage witchcraft in their church. So, he left the church and went to his village to tell his mother the same thing. I wasn't there, oh. I don't think till now that he realises what he told me. He married someone else but was still stalking me online till I blocked him. The liking he had for me, wasn't pure. He wanted to use me to become famous and my star (or whatever it is they told him) to shine. There's no public opinion that would have revealed that.

      My husband, I asked him, "You've been in relationships before. Why didn't you marry any of them? Why is it me? What was wrong with all of them? Or is it you that something is wrong with?" Let me confirm whether it's really God that reserved you for me, or I'm about to marry someone that nobody wants cos of bad character or any other thing that will emerge later.

      His character is good and he's a handsome man. But you don't marry someone just cos of good character or fine face. I have seen him in the aftermath of an accident that they thought would scar his face forever. Yes, I was shocked when I saw the scar but that didn't matter to me at all. Even with that scar (that later went), I still found him as attractive as I've done since I agreed with God. My love for my husband (that I knew wasn't cos of money or sex) was the major confirmation I needed.

      Delete
    8. To the OP - face God cos it'll be tragic if you marry the wrong man. You know what you like, but some of the things you're concentrating on are worrying. Your mother will have issues with people who are not Igbo? Lol. Everyone I know - including myself - who said they can't marry from a particular tribe, married from that tribe, oh. When I confirmed where my husband is from, I actually shouted "Jesus Christ!" Because of a past experience, that is the one place I had said I would never marry from/into. As in, down to the exact town. I had no real reason to suspect because he doesn't have an accent. He doesn't even behave like a Nigerian man. His surname is not English but more than one place have the surname. So, I was very disturbed. But I had heard God by then, and no amount of strong head I could do would make me pretend I didn't hear God. Before I enter trouble I sent myself and God will ask me, "Who sent you?"

      When I was much younger, I heard a pastor's wife say how her father was killed with juju in one place in Akwa Ibom. And cos of that, her mother swore that none of her three daughters will marry from there. Do you know all the three daughters schooled & did NYSC in different places that were not near Akwa Ibom, yet it was only men from that particular town in Akwa Ibom that came to marry them? It was like a joke that wasn't funny. One of them went to school in an Igbo-speaking state. Another one went and did NYSC in the North. The third one in PH. Men from those places didn't approach them for friendship, not to talk of marriage. It's the place they and their mother decided by themselves that they will not marry into, that husbands came from.

      Sometimes, you'll be running your mouth and making decisions by yourself, and God will just be looking at you and laughing. And He'll be saying, "Grow up and be coming. I'm already in your future waiting for you." Sis, you want to marry an Igbo man because of your mother. See the rough play you want to play with your future. What if the husband God has for you isn't Igbo or even Nigerian? You'll miss him "because my mother, inter-tribal issues". Any wahala your mother has with men that are not Igbo, let her not pass it to you before you enter the wrong hands because of her prejudice. Bad husband is not a function of tribe, oh.

  23. Look inward there must be something you like about him since you have been friends for some time, i still remember what RSQ wrote here abt marriage sometimes ago, Marriage goes way beyond love
    You need a man that would respect you 
    A man that stands by you, will never let family or friend speak ill of you behind or in front of you
    You need a husband that understands and accepts you warts and all
    You need a man that would mind his words around you
    Respects your decisions, values your family.
    Sadly, it takes more than love to be a great husband.

  24. Stella it's not true that women are obsessed with the first man they had sex with. Often it's because the girls were already very in love which is why they had sex with him in the first place.

  26. Dear poster, my husband was far from what I expected in the beginning. But I ended up falling for him as I continued communicating with him even while I wasn’t decided if I wanted to be with him or not. My advice to you is to date this man first, and I don’t mean having sex o. Let him be the man of your life, calling you in the mornings/nights telling you sweet nothings. Let him take you out, be your man, woo you. If after all these you still don’t feel anything or see the possibility of falling for him sometime in the future, then let him go.

    1. What an irony! As for me, I fell in love with my hubby, or so I thought, bcos we belong to d same denomination also same tribe,and I knew dt would make my parents so happy. Two years into d marriage,it is now I'm realizing dt he has only d qualities my parents wanted in a husband for me, not what I want. The 'love' died a natural death. So now we're separated.
      I've started seeing d main guy I loved right from day one but rejected his marriage proposal bcos he's a Muslim and my parents would never consider him. Luckily for me, he's still not married.
      After my divorce proper, we're geting married and this time I'm going to damn what anybody says cos this is d person dt makes me happy.
      We differ though, but I can't manage a man just becos I wanna stay married.

Biko settle down, marriage with the one you love or not, there will always be ups and downs, love is not enough. understanding, communication, patience and lots more is what u will need. Marry him and use the igboticness for humour. you wont even know at wat point you started feeling something for him cos I assure you that you will!

    2. This is NOT TRUE!This would only work for unexposed semi literate women or men, who have a very narrow view of life and think marriage and the use of their uterus is what defines them as women and validates their womanhood and existence. If you are well educated, exposed and have depth this sort of bullshit advise would never work for you at all. Personally, you sound like you do not know what you want.Marriage is not mandatory so I do not relate with Nigerian women who are almost always desperate. Sometimes I am sad I did not grow up in Nigeria connected to the culture and all but when I read advises on the chronicles that are posted, I am shocked at the primitive almost surreal type thinking and the advise women are given. Honestly I want somebody to answer this question, why do Nigerian women think marriage is mandatory?? Is that what they teach women and girls in schools? This sort compulsion to be married at below 30 or at a certain timeline at all is common with Nigerian ladies in the States. There must be something in the way girls are raised there that causes this sort of desperation. It is inconceivable that somebody would consider marrying a person they don't love or are attracted to. It just does not happen! How? Why? To what end? There needs to be some sort if overhaul of the thinking in Nigeria and I am not talking about throwing the culture in the garbage but just a tad bit of refinement. This chronicle seems ridiculous, you don't like somebody? Then not only should you not marry them, you should not date them! The only think I can really point out is that basing your choice of lover on how dark skinned they are or attractive they look can come bite you in the butt later because human age and they don't always look good in the process, so better be damn sure you love the person's mind. I hope you make the best decision for yourself. Good luck!

  29. I married my husband not because I was really in love with him but because I felt I was the answer to his prayer. I felt that nudge. I liked him. He painted a picture of a future I had been dreaming of, I liked that future and it felt good to work together to create that future. But the challenge was that deep intimacy was the problem. I thought the intimacy will come in marriage. It feels terrible now that we are married. It's been two years I still cringe when he comes closer. Sex is like a chore. I've been praying to God to help me love this good looking, God fearing man. I'm still praying. I just want to wake up and feel that love that goes from my head down to my spine. I want to be able to look into his eyes and say I love you deeply. Pls pray with me. I love being married to him but the sexual feeling is not just there. Pls pray along with Anonymous. I believe I will come back to testify.

  30. To be honest with you, I can't advise you to gamble with this, yes gamble. One might say you'll love him later, what if the love doesn't grow after marriage and you'll then find someone you love and is reciprocating the love, by then, it's too late. Or love may grow later in marriage.

    The truth is marriage is too sweet for you not to enjoy, especially when God blesses you with the grace to meet your soul mate, so you just can't afford to get it wrong or gamble with it.

    My advice to you is that you should give it time and while at that, keep telling God to help you. You need the help of God to get it right in marriage. Skin colour, height, financial stability et al can't give you the joy that comes with marrying the one God has made for you which comes with so much love and peace of mind. Never stop telling God about it, if he's meant for you, that attraction from you to him should spring up and every other thing should follow and if not, let the one meant for you come. It worked for so many including myself. I wish you well.

  34. Have you ever thought of the fact that you have an inferiority complex as regards to your heritage being an Igbo person as a result of growing up in the West and being made fun of or seeing people of Igbo descent being made fun of because of their accent and mannerisms? The problem is with you and not the young man. Peter Obi has the most "Igbotic" accent everbutI will marry him ten times over before any Nigerian man with fake accent. Late Amazon Dora Akunyili had an igbotic accent, Charles Soludo has an igbotic accent. Go figure. They should have Hausatic or Yorubatic accent okwaya? Anakogheri! I'm sure you won't have a problem with a Yoruba man that calls egg "hegg" okwaya?
    My advice: please leave that young man for a well deserving Igbo girl who was raised in the East and has no problem being with a real Igbo man. Go and find a man who you are attracted to. Don't subject that guy to a life of misery please.

  36. The Igbo guy seems to be the one. It doesn't seem like he has any real character problems. Maybe you can start taking him out to sophisticated places and introducing him to different ppl who are a bit more refined to see how he does. Oftentimes when ppl are stuck in one mode it is usually from lack of exposure to other influences, so make an effort to take him out of his comfort zone by traveling more, introducing him to new ppl and new experiences and it should help. Also please query his belief system on a husband and wife roles, because he may have strict beliefs that you are unaware of that may truly cause problems in a marriage.

If he cannot handle himself or change according to the environment then it is up to her to decide if she can put up with that. Even I eat and behave differently if I am in a fast food place than in an upscale restaurant. I speak and carry myself differently according to the setting. If he is a professional he should even be better able to adjust himself to his environment and know when to change his carriage according to the settings.

When God gives you the right man, be rest assured that you will have a blissful life afterwards notwithstanding how you felt when you first encountered them.

  44. Dear Poster,

    Im so lazy to type on this blog but you may be missing a good thing here so Im forced to chip in my two cents. You sound like a focused and level headed as well as disciplined. Make a list of what you want in a man. Do a deep soul search. The things that matter to you, and rate this guy on a scale of 1 to 10. If he scores 6 and above cos no man is perfect, take out some time to really date him and get to know him-no sex o. Spend hours talking and spend time with each other. The reason I say this is that after 5 years of marriage to an Igbo man I must add, there is nothing as sexy as a man who is focused and takes care of his business and his family. By the time you join forces together and the grace of God, you will be a power house. What type of family do u want? What type of Father do u want your children to have? Is he someone you admire and respect and want your son to be like in the true sense of values and morals. Dont worry your sons can be born in the Us and have better accents. Lol
    Now back to the butterflies. Attraction is very key in marriage so let no one sweep it under the carpet. But Ive come to realise that the deeper attraction is the one that grows and gradually flourishes. The man you described up there has some fine qualities. Please dig deeper and dont loose a good thing because of mundane stuff like skin colour and accent. Most importantly while you devote time opening up to him and getting to really know him, ask God to guide you. Tell Him Lord if hes not the one please let him go away. Give a timeline, say 6 months. Access the relationship after that time. Have you guys grown closer or further apart. Then decide on next steps. Driven women flourish when they are married to focused men that have great ambition. You have a good thing here, harness it, polish it and make it shine like gold. You throw it away and another wise woman picks it up and makes a great marriage out of it.

  45. My story plenty, I grew to love my husband, didn't love him when we started dating, we SHA got married but the issue now is I will advise any lady to ensure the man loves her more, the man should want you to marry him more than u want him to marry him, my husband doesn't speak fluently and I have noticed he doesn't expressed himself well correctly with words in English especially when speaking for longgg, am SHA in between loving him and not loving him. He is good tho, but he am beginning to notice some stuff I don't like and I always blame myself for marrying him sometimes. Jo all relationship should lead to marriage. I wish I can even advice some young single girls, but I don't want to look or sound like am not happy in my home. Don't rush into marriage, make sure he loves you more,

  47. I just learned sth from your story..now I understand why in some countries eg USA, you are from where you are born. A person born/raised in NewYork is from NewYork and so on. Though you are Igbo, you were born/raised in another state. In truth, you are from that place you were born. You probably are more familiar with their food, language, mannerisms and their men more than Igbo people. This igbotic man is not attractive to you cos you are not used to people like him. Meanwhile, a girl who grew up in Aba or Onitsha will not mind the guy. I really wish your Mum realized this and allowed you to marry any of the non-Igbo suitors you liked. Nigerian parents in USA are realizing that now and allowing their Nigerian-American kids marry from different tribes and races.

    life? Go out with friends live, laugh, love. Travel and see the world. You will meet someone you are compatible with someday. If he didn’t have 400k salary you wouldn’t even consider him.
