    Toke, hilarious..I loved crazy once..loved him so much,I didn’t understand myself..he loved me too but was just a serial cheat and steady liar. He had his soft moments too..kind and very caring. Sex was awesome..don’t get me started. I shudder when I think of it..he was a good kisser, a kind of guy that would kiss you senseless..ladies u kno what I

    December 13, 2014 at 12:13 am

    I’m currently in one of those crazy ones that every cell in ur head tells u is wrong but every fibre in your being just wants more
    I’ve even seen messages,calls etc but I no go just hia word
    He dropped me off today,didnt hear a peep from him all day then after changing his name on my phone to “Don’t pick”… 10mins after I start to make excuses for him in my head then I decide to stop being so dramatic and immature and I carry my hand by myself and do the calling and then he doesn’t pick(I called 4times),he calls me about 30mins later to say the mechanic locked his car in the garage and he just found out and he went ballistic and blah blah blah… so uncle how that one take concern phone wey u no pick nah?
    I go ballistic,yell at him not to ever call me again… he shows up at my doorstep an hour later with chocolate,wine and takeout so naturally we make up(no not sex,just a lot of kissing&hand holding)
    He leaves to go back home,pings me that he’s home&cos I’m still suspicious as a lag babe,i call him immediately on that same phone he just pinged me with and lo and behold,Dear Lover doesn’t pick up… again!!! Raise your hand if ur surprised… ah,no hands up
    Suspicion confirmed… will I hia word??? no!!!
    I’m already making excuses in my head… I mean,he must have fallen asleep a second after pinging

      Awww ..just chill girl..sometimes just forget him or imagine he’s not there. I know it could be hard but he may not be worth worrying about and some men want we chics to be send-less..

      Lmao @ raise your hands! You should start writing, I could almost picture everything you said vividly including you and the guy in question lol. Meanwhile, your boyfriend is a bad habit and knows he has you wrapped around his little finger. All these guys that know how to beg (the right way), and know the right words to say to calm you down and won’t let your anger run its course are dangerously addictive. Do and come out of there my dear or get a hold of your emotions and guard your heart with all diligence. My rule is, if you suspect he’s cheating, then he is.

      Nessa,sometimes u fall hard in crazy relationships, he doesn’t demean you, what are you saying cupcakes? He’s apologising, lifting ur skirts,pinning you to the wall,parting your thighs ,flipping u over and giving you something so so good down there..u forget self worth and just call his name till it’s ex and I were like that..always pampering me and giving me good,good loving..

    December 13, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    African men will be more innovative if they spend less time thinking and talking about love. women too.

    • Vicky

      December 13, 2014 at 9:41 pm

      Brother of mine, would you chill please? Innovative ideas come after a man has been thoroughly satisfied by his madam..the big ideas start rolling in thereby changing the world. Go cuddle up to your madam and see how you can begin to change the world from where you are bro..don’t wait on other men, if you have an idea,Biko share with us, we can grow it together don’t be mean about it or use the “f”word. You are so much better than that bro..I’m believing you are..stay positive pal

  19. Tatiana

    December 13, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    Seriously I am doing all crazy things for love right now. Don’t even go judging me because it won’t change a thing. Its bad that I know we are many women involved with this man but my head still tells me to hang on that I may be the chosen one someday. I am in my early 40s and have this other man chase me around to marry me, he worships the ground I step on, yet I don’t even like him let alone love him. He has no job, is not well educated and is possessive. My close friend said I should marry him and learn to love him later. He calls and says pls call me back I have no air time. I tire for love my people.

    • Vicky

      December 13, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      Tatiana, you need to be the one who can help him get better,if you think you can marry him, how about finance and a job? At least something to take care of you,you must know if you ever marry him,he has to be responsible for you to some extent..he has to take care of u girl..I know what you’re saying but it’s hard to imagine being without a job, I do hope he’s actively searching cos just incase you get to be the one, women need care..I’m sure ure a fabulous looking babe, you have to look even better after marriage and wear nice things but importantly be happy in and out. See toke our instructor, she know her way. We gat to know our way too..take care and think long/hard about what you would choose..

    crazy things u do for love is like supplementing 4years of her university education hoping u were meant to be. Two years into university networks begin to get so bad u can never reach her on weekends. But of course love is blind — no it isnt that u’re a fool , just that — well u’re not there are u . So u take a trip down to Akure one saturday — lo n behold everyone’s gone away for the weekend.. So tired of calling her friends cause u know the usual rap. End of semester, she returns n story story. But hey, u’re crazy in love so u let go – let bygones be. Three years in and u find that well -even weekdays now the networks simply dont work. Crazy — u simply tell urself just one more year to put up with all that bullshit. Alone u rage and promise to teach her a good lesson , third semester ends u say to urself time is too short to be picking up tabs on old grudges. u hit the sac, thrill each other every other night for two weeks then u learn its already final year and a lot of work has to be done on projects as if u hadn’t been thru university urself. She kisses goodbye with promises. U know its all false, but hey isn’t that what love is alk about? Yep thats what ur warped up mind makes u believe. U count the days, then the months and the quarters then again u begin the countdown . Exams are over, projects done, schools are getting closed and the bad news cascading in. U seek out her friends, u ask them, they ask u “ah ah u havent seen her” As if u’d be asking them if u had. Then one of the calls u aside and says ” hey be a man. If its meant to be it will be. ” Crazy. U think of the years. U think of the assets u’ve frittered away all in 4 yrs. ” Crazily u dust ur pants and move on — just like that.And in ur warped up mind u still recall that someone had once said: It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. It’s the box-office best selling movie of ur life but u believe u’ll never be the fool again or crazy in love ever again. Or will u?

  23. see me see trouble

    December 14, 2014 at 12:57 am

    When it comes to love, there questions are just endless. It takes only the strong hearted to deal with the storms that comes along with it. As for me, I don’t even wanna begin my story. God is in control. Moving on! Can we talk about something else? love is too depressing chai 🙂

    Mhhhhhm, where to begin!?
    Once upon a time, i was that girl that made 101 rules of how that ‘man’ will hunt me down; how he would pursue me endlessly-call, text, see me- as i ponder whether i should put him out of misery; back then my prayer was, ‘lord let him love me more than i love him’.
    Well, reality check: man happened after a couple of years of me admiring him from afar, only a handful of the rules applied, man almost never calls or text- says he’s busy making money (i hope not at the factory!), when we do meet to hang out- man never takes his eyes off his phone- the very one he never uses to call or text me!
    Now i am making a new set of 102 rules- how i would not call or text him first or plan next outing- Mh, it’s hard o, because just a few minutes ago i tried calling him and when the call was connecting i prayed for bad network that it should not go through. *deep sad sigh* IT DID…

    • Just me

      December 14, 2014 at 3:04 pm

      Going throught thesame thing and I told myself never will I call again. After 15 days the message I get from him is ” Are we quarelling” No we are not quarelling but I am no longer a fool.
      If he does not step up his communication drop him. No need to waste your time. Dont want any false actors dancing on my stage.

    December 14, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Love is beautiful with the right person. Never did any crazy thing for love, however I have had men, 2 to be precise who did crazy things to be in a relationship with me. Well one ended up as my hubby and he was the craziest!!! 7 years down the road and with 3 kids he is still crazy. LOVE!!!

  28. Grown woman

    December 14, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    @Wonder and Just me, that was one of the reasons i just couldn’t tolerate as in my own says he doesnt like to talk on the phone and im like how about i like to talk on the phone n the importance of a phone call.The dude always had tht excuse till i just walked away on him n never heard from him what a waste of space.Its plain sad when some people can’t even agree to compromise abeg let me be single and happy rather than be in a rship where im not treated with respect. We should never make an excuse for anyone. One can never be busy than God who has to attend to over 7 billin people. ..

    My friends think I’m too hard but I’m very big on communication. I don’t chase after guys who don’t chase after me. If I like a guy and I realize I seem to be the one making most of the efforts, I immediately go cold turkey on him (Delete & block) and boy has it worked! Saves me from unnecessary heartbreaks or pain. Life is too short to waste all these love I have to give on a wrong and undeserving person.

    She obviously has run out of ideas.

  32. (Grab some popcorn)
    So I became a born again Christian and of course there would be no sex before marriage, I met this hawwwt babe (cleaning forehead) and she liked the idea that a guy wouldnt wanna sleep with her, I on the other hand was thinking I could change her. So we started dating, loved the babe crazy, she was in Lagos and I was in Benin. I would travel down almost every weekend to see this babe and she never came to Benin once. As the relationship progressed, we had this nasty fight and we didnt talk for a while, next thing I knew, the gist popped that she had slept with a friend of a friend and she actually confessed that she did it; even with that, I forgave her and was still begging her o until I discovered she was still seeing the guy, that was when I collected my mumu button from her.

    Love is wicked , I need help.
    Am in love with this guy, we have been dating for 11 years, and It seems I have been dating the wrong guy . I work in partnership with a friend of mine and we have big dreams which we are working tirelessly towards. Though money hasn’t started flowing in as such but we are very positive about the future. My fiance doesn’t believe in my work because he says ‘I have been working with my friend for over a year and I don’t have anything monetary to show for it’. I love my job passionately because I want to create jobs for generations unborn. I am thinking of quitting the relationship but we are planning to get married early next year. I can’t give up my dreams because of a man.
