So I gave you all a warning and you need to prepare yourself because this dating scene has just gotten REAL. The next few paragraphs will be the WHOLE truth and nothing but the TRUTH.
Look I want to be as honest as I can be without some you
nosey folks contacting my parents. Like, let me live my LIFE as a 36 year old YOUNG lady and stop telling my Mum and Dad!
Anyway let’s get this show on the road…
So if you’re behind on these dating post, I suggest you to go and read Dating Abroad Pt. 1 and Dating Abroad Pt. 2.
For the rest of you…you all can get to reading about the dating abroad antics that I have to deal with. Lawd help us all.

So let’s talk about “Naija Bae”…..
He’s no longer bae. Let’s go back…waaaaay back (honestly it’s wasn’t THAT long ago). NB explained that because he was JW (Jehovah Witness) he didn’t want to
- start a relationship with someone who wasn’t JW
- start a relationship with someone who wasn’t going to convert to JW
- since he already had a son (whoops did I forget to mention that?!), he wanted to start a family
But what I found hilariously funny is that
- he wanted to have sex
- he wanted to have sex
- did I mention that he wanted to have sex?!
So when he came by my flat I laughed. I had the BEST laugh ever.
*cues “Don’t Mind” by Kent Jones*
I actually laughed in his face.
1. Sir you have me messed up with someone else
B. Did you just say that out LOUD?
iii. I am done with you… “Good Day”
Clearly I am not the one and I will NOT start to be the one anytime soon.
So that little ditty ended in about 3 weeks! However, I will say this…the conversation had with NB about what was and wasn’t going to take place was a good one. Everything ended on a good note and I now have a banking connection.

I don’t get, what was wrong with his sex proposal? It’s what “dating” people do. In fact u date purposely so u can have a society valid reason for why u’re screwing someone! So u said no and get out?
If u’re considering Tinder and _____, then NB may begin to be considered a saint.
Nothing is wrong with his sex proposal if that’s what both people want. Is it not my choice that I just don’t want it to be about sex?
We shall see.
FUNNNNYYYYYYY…Keep strong Marla…Are there any single men out in ______?
I’m keeping strong sis. I don’t know yet, but I’m told that Tinder works GREAT there.
I won’t tell your mother but I might tell your Nanny. Tell your Banking contact that your Uncle needs a loan. xxx
lol! Uncle Clive I started to tell Nanny. I have to finish telling her the story.
Marla you could be a writer, a comedian, or all of the above. It is so refreshing that you are sharing your experience with humor, and candor. Still laughing!!
I’m at the point that I’m just trying to live my life to the fullest. I mean it’s good to cry, but I feel better if I laugh at the foolishness 🙂
I wish I could insert the drama cue “Din, din, din!!!!!!!!!!!” Girl I laughed out loud in this place!
ok I think I just laughed a bit too loud and even snorted. Yes giiiiiiiiiirl! Moments like ours need drama cues ALL THE TIME!
