It doesn’t matter if you recently returned to the streets, you’re taking a break from relationships to focus on yourself or you’re not just meeting the right people.
You can probably relate to this story if you’re a single friend
Your friend just celebrated their first anniversary with bae
You remember all the times you’ve had to weigh in as relationship counsellor
You send them messages to show your excitement
God when Pro-Max
Now you’re asking your friends when they’ll get married
Because you want to wear aso ebi and eat party jollof.
But they counter it with, “when will you sef find a partner?”
It’s giving Nigerian nosey aunty, TBH.
Then they try to match you with someone
There’s no harm in trying, right?
So they start sharing your number and social media handles
It starts with their partner’s friend, then their coworker. Next thing, it’s someone who’d previously hit on them.
As long as the person is good-looking, you don’t mind
Ah yes, they’re very fine. But do they have sense?
Soon after, you already know it won’t work
If they’re not saying “am cool” or trying to “have you eaten” you to death, they’re telling you how they want you people to be eating each other’s work.
You’re now worried about the kind of people your friend knows
And why they even thought it was a good match.
You conclude your friends hate you
And you’ve decided to stop indulging in their amateur match-making.
But they won’t stop sending you posts about single people
Will you rest, in Jesus’ name?
Or doing yimu at your “God-when” comments
Delete this immediately.
It’s clear to them that you’re a clown
You’re one with the streets.
Still, whenever you post a cute picture of you with someone
Anyone where you’re both smiling
They rush to the DM to ask if the Lord has finally done it
They think you’re choosing to stay on the streets because ashawo is in your eye
Which might be true
But they don’t know the dating pool is murky these days
Everybody on the street is either wicked, planning to japa or married.
You’re actually ready for a relationship
You just need to find someone worth it
But you don’t know how many talking stages you have left in you
Your helper is the only person you want to tell more about yourself.
