These south-south love birds found love only because a dear friend thought it right to urge Frank to offer Maureen a ride to work. So from what turned out to be a one-off offer, we have a beautiful couple ready to share their forever together.
Frank is from Delta state, while his bride Maureen is from Rivers state, enjoy this beautiful love story!
Our Love Story
from the bride, Maureen
It all started when I moved to Lagos a few years ago. Our mutual friend thought it nice to help me speak to Frank about dropping me off at work seeing that we stayed only a stone throw away from each other. We always had the most basic conversations, at least for the first couple of days.
One day I told him I was off to Ghana for the weekend and coincidentally he was going to be there too.
That’s where our love ship sailed.
I tried playing hard to get and wanted to stall for a bit since I had just come out of a relationship. But when he told me bout his move to Italy for work, I knew a big part of me was going to miss him, so I said yes to officially date him.
The long distance wasn’t really felt as I traveled frequently to visit him in Italy. We would then use the opportunity to take vacations together.
Months went by and he moved back. I always wanted to have a party for my 25th birthday so it wasn’t really a surprise when my friend from Ghana flew down along with all my siblings from Port Harcourt.
I was busy planning the party with him and had no clue he had a proposal in mind. He popped the question at the party that we both planned! Can you imagine?
He had everyone in attendance hold up a letter of this sentence – MAUREEN WILL YOU MARRY ME – while he held on to the question mark.
Of course, I said YES.
With my lover, friend and companion I know love has no end for us. I have had really good times with him since we met and forever can’t wait to host our amazing love life.
