You know how they say everyone is entitled to one minute of madness in their lives? Well for people in love, take that one minute and multiply it by how long your relationships last.
There’s something about looking at a person and wanting to be permanently stretched across the undersides of their shoes forever that makes people lose their goddamn minds.
Showing us that there is not one lie in our love-madness equation, we got 7 people to share their most embarrassing love stories. We had to change their names because they did really dumb shit and we don’t want Yahoo boys getting any ideas and using them as their latest sources of income:
Lanre changed his course of study in university.
When I was young and dumb, which was this morning but also five years ago, I fell really deeply in love with this girl, let’s call her Tola.
At the time, I was right about to enter university to study law, but Tola had her sights set on Communications and Media.
Don’t let my parents see this because I told them a whole other story, but I changed my course from law to communications to get closer to her.
Long story short, she didn’t get Communications. I ended up being alone in my department while we drifted apart.
She got engaged last week. Somebody please make sure my clown wig matches my nose, okay?
Nnamdi was doing inter-state love.
I want to say this is the dumbest thing I’ve done for love, but it doesn’t even come close. This is sha the one I can talk about for now.I’m still healing okay.
A couple of years ago, I was dating this girl in Kogi State University while Iived in Lagos. Because I am African Lover Boy number 1, I would take a bus all the way from Lagos to meet her in her hostel, spend time together over the weekend, and come back, love battery refreshed.
I did this a couple of times, but every other time I would notice some new gift on her phone, a new phone she didn’t tell me about, things like that. Turns out, while I was doing inter-state love, my beloved was living her best life as a campus queen.
Anyway, these things build character abi?
Jola re-scheduled her job interview to beg man at the airport? Girl what?
Hmm. Who the gods wish to destroy, they first run mad. No be lie.
About two years ago, I was madly in love with some guy that honestly and truly took me fi idiat every chance he got. Around that time I was also looking for a job and finally got a shot at an interview in a really good company.
Please tell me why a day before my interview, I got into a serious fight with my bobo? So serious I actually had to call the company to re-schedule so I could beg him at the airport?
Anyway, let’s thank God for deliverance from oppression, I didn’t get the job, but at least I got my sense back shortly after the airport incidence.
Isaac carried over on top of love oh!
We were in separate departments, let’s say mass communications and microbiology, so we had very different schedules, down to examinations.
Anyway, while I had tests and examinations, she was mostly free and vice-versa. So during the period for my tests exams, I, Mr Surulere Shakespare, decided this was the best period to keep my love company. So of course, I banged my tests and exams and ended up carrying the course over to the next year. I don’t even know the girl’s Twitter handle anymore. This life.
Elizabeth was acting like the cool girl.
In my defence, I had just gotten my heart broken and couldn’t imagine a world where I didn’t speak to my ex every day. This is why my dumb ass told him he could tell me anything at any time, even if he was seeing other girls.
He was seeing other girls, and he told me. Have you seen that meme of the giant egg thing reading a message and crying? That was me when we were texting and he was telling me about some girl that just left his house.
Never again, satan.
What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done for love?
