HOW THEY MET
I first saw him at Skye bank interview center in 2011, then later in training school where we spent 9weeks…You know those guys we were told to be wary of… those overtly friendly ones that were friends to every girl, always smiling, hugging and playing with everyone. That was a description of Taiwo (a.k.a Tlolu) so I ran as fast as my legs could carry me when he started making advances.
I was posted close to his office and he would take me to and fromr work almost every day, Sometimes he would flirt and I would laugh telling him to get serious and let me be because I never thought anything serious could happen between us being that we had opposite temperaments. Anyway he was later posted to a new unit and we did not keep in touch as much…(you know out of sight is out of mind).
Then out of nowhere one day he chatted me that he had been posted to my unit and I jokingly said “I know you have not done operations and I know you are not happy about the redeployment but don’t worry our love will start well” little did I know that it would actually come true. He resumed in my unit and we were asked to work together, he started his usual flirting and some of my friends thought he actually had a soft spot for me and i said let’s see how it goes. We started dating late 2013, there were good times,there were bad times still we kept going strong, we were inseparable and I knew I had found my soulmate.
Fast forward almost a year and half later, he proposed and the rest is history. It’s like a dream come true, I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend, the one who brings so much sunshine and sweetness into my life reason I call him my sugar high, my superman, my treasure and sunshine.
I love you boo and I promise you from the bottom of my heart I will love you till I die.
The proposal day will remain one of the scariest days of my life for a long time☺️ I had so many questions running through my mind! What if she says no? What if she embarrasses me in front of my friends? What if things didn’t go according to plans? What if this! What if that! I had seen too many movies where the ‘player’ was embarrassed by the one he had chosen and I had plenty sleepless nights wondering if such a fate would befall me🙈
I decided to propose to her on her birthday, So I set my plans in motion with very few of her friends, Ify, Jane and Yemi and some of my friends Biola, Kunzle Peace and Bayuu alongside my lil sister Shaded (baby…these peeps listed can kill you oo..lol)
Jane was tasked with getting her ring size without arousing her suspicions (she’s a very light sleeper, so there was no way I was touching her finger). While the other conspirators helped in booking the venue, getting the cakes, contacting friends and swearing them to an oath of secrecy😅 etc…
Planning was quite difficult on my side cos we shared the same office and had access to each other’s accounts(yes we do) so I had to provide bogus stories for my sudden disappearances and unexplained outflows. Anyways, Feb 28, 2015 came and I wished her happy birthday, gave her the birthday present, a few kisses(winks) and told her I had to go see my parents after which I promised to take her out later in the evening. My brother had flown into Lagos the previous day to assist with logistics alongside Biola. We went to set up the conference hall at montys, picked up the cakes, made calls some calls and all.
So I picked her up and started asking her which special place she would love to go? My usually conservative wife to be told me she enjoyed our previous visit to intercontinental and would like to go there(oleeeeeee….kill me) I played along and said ok.
We got to monty’s and my photographer started taking pictures… At this point she was wondering what the whole paparazzi was about🤓 I gave her some cock and bull story and took her inside the restaurant to the rousing birthday songs from our friends and families( the shock and surprise on her face was epic)
That was the easy part, I started having plenty apprehensions as to my “what ifs” ? I couldn’t eat or drink while Biola, kunzle and Ibrahim nearly finished the whole buffet table😜. I finally summoned courage and took my champagne glass for a toast…after rambling for a few minutes (at this point I was sweating and trembling…and wondering why it had to be the guy who proposes?)
However, I surged ahead(na once man pikin dey die) and called her out! Told her how special she was and more, went down on my knees (for the FIRST time) and popped the golden question!!! wait for it……. She was just laughing😂 (in that split second….the faces of all my exs started flashing before my eyes) but I calmly asked again at which point she said sorry and said yes…(sigh of relief)… Thank God!!!
I slipped the ring on her finger, we shared a few kisses and the rest like they say is history 😍 #godwin
Looking back now, I thank God for that wonderful day and I pray we shall all continue to blossom in love and live happily
