Ajala Travels

Monday, June 1, 2009
I need the love of my baby to keep me warm :-( It's been one whole week and a day since I've been apart from Bolaji and it's so hard I must say. Since we started dating, I can't say we've spent up to 24 hours apart from each other! And here I am now miles and miles away from my babe :-( If it was not for this work that brought me to this city I would be some where kissing my baby's forehead or something right now, instead of sitting in this hotel room, staring at the ceiling and blogging! I can't say I'd blog that much once I get back home.

When we knew that our separation was gonna be for a sizeable amount of time we tried to make sure that we had all our communication gadgets sorted out: Smartphone? Check. Internet? Check. Roaming phone? Check. Cheaper Land Phone? Check. But it's just not the same you know. I want to hear about Bolaji's day. Who he saw and how they said what. I want to look up a fabulous recipe and decide to try it out on him as my guinea pig. I want to talk (or argue ha!) over mundane everyday issues with him. I want him to come up behind me and hug me and call me his babes :-) This long distance thing is tough ooooo! But only for a short while sha.

When I was leaving a few friends of mine kinda hinted at my craziness for leaving my wicked good man all alone in Lagos for the sharks to feed. Sometimes I get little anxieties about that but I have to say that I'm not very bothered. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that the ladylagos sharks won't have thier fangs out in louboutin heels, but I'm saying, what God has ordained for me will be for me and no one would be able to "take him" away from me. As we said goodbye at the airport and I was crying, Bolaji wiped my tears and said "I'll be good". I didn't even ask him or say anything like that and he just offered. He knows my fears sometimes lol. I trust him to be good. I trust him to make the right decisions for us.

It sounds crazy but Bolaji didn't even believe that people cheated like they do in Lagos...that is until I started pointing it out to him. Then he was shocked! Lol. Sometimes I feel bad like I should just let him live in the sheltered cocoon he has. But then other times I think, better I tell him so he can be on the lookout than have some stanky LagosBadBabe show him, u know what i'm saying? Lol. I love my baby!

Girl you are whipped! LOL! I already see I'm going to have to take you under my wings and teach you somethings.
Give all of you, but not all of you. Feed it to him piece by piece. Keep him coming back for more. Also, be mysterious. Don't forget, men like to chase/hubt. So again, don't give all yourself. Just give him enough to want more. Don't be so always available to him. I agree, you shouldn't have told him about the cheaters. Let him find out on his own. Oh well, it's all good.

"what God has ordained for me will be for me and no one would be able to "take him" away from me"...I must say that's the attitude to have...

Sorry u r missing ur babe, but I guess these things spice up a relationship, and teach u how to cope, just in case...don't worry, it'll be over in a jiffy n u can go back to ur love...

cheers

PS: I am aware this was 2 years ao but still...

"what God has ordained for me will be for me and no one would be able to "take him" away from me"...

that is so he attitude to have.. i keep trying to tell people that. Even other than relationships, I am a stronger believer in "what is mine will definitely not pass me by" by God's grace.
