20 Nigerians Say What They’d Rather Die Than Share With Their Partners

September 30, 2020

Every relationship has its secrets, things that both parties are not quite comfortable sharing with each other. Like the one time you slept with girlfriend’s father thrice or the fact that you have to think of your ex-boyfriend during sex to have an orgasm. I asked 20 Nigerians what they won’t share with their partner even at gunpoint and this is what they had to say. 

Chioma, Female

Toothbrush. I am more willing to tell my partner I slept with his brother than share his toothbrush. Even stick deodorant is a problem but I will sniff his pits though.

Dami, Female

Chicken wings. On God, I don’t play with my wings.

Alvin, Male

Account details. I can do phone password though.

Amaka, Female

I cheated before. 

Rukky, Female

I stop on the road to watch people fight.

Quincy, Male

A joint account. Individuality in a relationship is really important.

Nkeiru, Female

I’d rather die than tell my partner I had serious sexual fantasies about one of his close friends.

Zainab, Female

Shawarma. I’d much rather remove my left breast. 

Red, Male

Toothbrush. Sharing toothbrushes is like drinking dirty dishwater. You use it to remove filth from your mouth so why should I put it in my mouth? Disgusting, please. 

Cynthia, Female

Wine cork collection, mismatched socks, all my physical time, black t-shirts. I know it’s weird but I’m picky about stuff.

Festus, Male

My diary. If she ever found out the things I’ve written about her and other people, she’d freak out.

Stephanie, Female

I still stalk my ex sometimes.

Ese, Male

Eris, you’re literally my partner. Werey dey disguise. 

Katherine, Female

Body count, state of my finances (actual account balance). Why do you want to know? 

Ayo, Male

My asshole. If she wants to share hers, that’s fine.

Sophie, Female

The one time I gave our mutual friend lap dance. So embarrassing. 

Tobi, Male

My email password.

Bola, Female

I’d rather die than tell my current partner that I was in a relationship with a married man for 2 years and recently just ended it.

Emem, Female

I sometimes fantasize about doing it with other guys. 

Chinedu, Male

There are certain trauma I’ve experienced that I cannot share because if they ever used it in an argument, I’d be devastated.
