Tomi and Yomi met briefly in the university and exchanged a few hellos. Even after getting her phone number, it took Yomi’s A-game to get her to say “yes!”. Their pre-wedding photos are enough proof that true love does exist between the two and they are beyond ready to take it to the altar.

Counting down to #TokYoUnion2019, they both share their love story and highlight what fascinated them about the other person. Read about it below and catch up on our other love stories here on www.bellanaijaweddings.com.

How We Met
By the bride-to-be, Tomi

We met in University but I’m not sure if that counts because we only said ‘hello’ a few times as we had a few mutual friends and didn’t really see often. Fast forward to post-university, he calls me on a random day and says “Hello this is Yomi, I got your number from xxx (I can’t remember who, lol) and wanted to ask if you had questions for Mckinsey’s problem-solving test”. I remember thinking to myself this phonè is plenty oh lol. We probably spoke once or twice after that.

Fast forward again two years later, around January 2014, he messages me on Facebook and says “Hey! Long time no speaks. What’s your number?” In my head, I’m like ‘hmm this boy and his disappearing acts’ lol, but I found him very intriguing (he was always so slick) and I was curious to get to know him. We started talking again and I guess, as they say, the rest is history- we had the bants for days!

What started out as a wonderful friendship blossomed into this unexplainable bond. Honestly feels like he is an extension of me and we are not separate people. I remember a season in my life when I really had a rough time at work and was preparing for a series of interviews for a new job that required intensive studying and practice, Yomi literally held my hand through it, he cheered me on, he pushed me and reminded me every step of the way that I could do it. Honestly, don’t think I could have landed that job without his support. He loves me and prioritises me in a way that really amazes me. He gets me, he roots for me and most of all he is a kind person and an honourable man. Super stoked to be doing life with this amazing human being! #TokYoUnion2019 leggo!

I was always fascinated by her drive and ambition. She had accomplished a lot at a very young age and was studying for another big one! Long hours, multiple priorities, she stayed killing it! She was the most beautiful being and in the most honest way. We’d spend long hours on the phone talking about everything and nothing, pure unadulterated laughter from the soul, I never wanted it to end. It became my dream to marry her so I brought out my A-game.

Like the dancing senator, I dazzled her with my first charm GBA-gam! then the second one GBA-gam! and as they say, the rest is history lol. Really though, Tomi’s the greatest gift God has given to me and I’m forever thankful for her. She’s my best friend, my confidant, my comfort zone and my second lieutenant in battle. I honestly can’t imagine life without her, like what was my plan lol?.

    I’m happy for you people.

    Me, I broke up with the boo yesterday.

    I was calling him, he wasn’t picking only to pick up after a while and say in the most irritated tone: ‘why do you keep calling, I’m doing something with my phnoe’
    Me: what if I’m in trouble
    Him: are you in trouble? *long pause* you’re not. I’m typing with my phone
    Me: don’t talk to me in that tone, I’m not a child
    Him: let’s talk later abeg.

    I’ve cried throughout the night. To think we were texting funny messages to each other. I’ve sha moved on.

    I’m so hurt, I can’t even explain and I’m resuming from my vacation this week, my team didn’t achieve what I wanted them to, how do I scold them and be sure it’s not transferred aggression.

    This is a guy that pursued me for 6 months.

      Pele! 🤗

      I don’t know why men can’t be honorable and break things off when they are done. No need to be a whole a**hole about it 🤦🏾‍♀️
      I hope you don’t renegade on your decision. ✊🏾

      So sorry hun. You sound really hurt. Not sure what is wrong with these men sef.

      Just cut your losses (his loss actually) and move on as hard as it might be at first.

      Keep yourself busy, find new hobbies and try not to think about.

      You can make new guy friends and go on dates to try to forget him

      Big hugs.

    Hi,Mz_Danielz, the truth is I understand how this relationship wahala is. It’s either he is uninterested in you all of a sudden( it may or n=may not be your fault) or he was never genuine in the first place. Either ways, you have to brave up and forget him. Let him go! I know it will be hard but just try. Do not look back and he would be startled. Might even come back for you( that is the part where you have changed the entire game in your favour).

    Then you can decide to take him back (on your own rules, no more soft-hearted lovey-dovey, or finally walk away and be a better version of you for the next relationship you decide to go into)

    I hope this helps

    So sad darling… I guess the sucker is done with you hence his behavior. no need for transfer aggression when you resume back work just make sure you put your best behavior up, even when your staff misbehaves act as you would normally do hun. life continues is all about up and down.
