1. If you had sex on the first date.

Trust us, it will definitely end in tears. How can you start a relationship with tlof tlof? Omo, better buy your tissues in advance.

2. If you didn’t have sex on the first date.

You didn’t have sex on the first date and you want the relationship to last? Hian oh. You better start rehearsing the tears now.

3. If you both had a talking stage.

This is a sure banker that the relationship will collapse. You people have talked all the relationship talk during talking stage. What else is left to chitchat about in the relationship?

4. There was no talking stage.

Omo, sorry for you oh. If you entered a relationship with someone without getting to know them, what makes you think it will not end in tears?

5. You are hiding it from social media.

If you love them that much, why are you hiding the relationship from social media? You don’t want people to see who you are dating abi? LMAO hot tears loading.

6. You are posting it with your full chest.

Ehn? Ehn? Clearly, you are setting your lover up for hot tears. Walahi. Someone will see them on your post and move to them, and they will agree. Next thing, they’ll break up with you. All because you posted them on the Internet. Hot tears oh, hot tears.

7. The sex is good.

Ahan, good things never last. You of all people should know that. As they are serving you orgasm, they will soon serve you heartbreak. Do you want to bet?

8. The sex is just there.

People that are collecting good sex, they are eating the breakfast of heartbreak. What is now your own with the mediocre sex? My dear, should we cut the tissue for you or you will wipe your tears with your clothes?

9. They are calling you sweet names.

That is how they will sweeten you up to the point of tears. Baby, sugar, honey, I think we should give each other space, sweetie, my love. Pele dear.

10. It’s your government name they call you.
