An Unexpected Love - Story of Us

Monday, June 1, 2009
This blog is not about anything else but a story of love. A story between to lovers brought together by fate by providence by whatever. This blog is chronicling a girl's emotions as she passes through all the different phases of this love and how she herself molds her world, her life in order to accomodate this grand theme of love.

I can give you a loooong background of how Bolaji and met but I'd save those details for later perhaps. Suffice it to say it took us a looooong time to get where we are now. It sounds like one of those storybook stories but I confess that I didn't plan it like that, it just....happened! I had been dating all kinds of guys. Guys who disappear. Guys who reappear just for a while. Guys who are scared to commit. Guys who are not scared to commit to several women. All sorts. I was even starting to think, this Lagos, one should just hold yourself and be very careful. Truth be told, I wasn't really looking for anyone. I sort of knew what I wanted and was willing to wait it out to get it or not at all. I wrote all the qualities I wanted in a partner down, and set about becoming the kind of person that kind of man would want. So if i want a funny, down to earth, ambitious partner, I got to work on me first! To make sure I can appreciate humour, to make sure that I wasn't snobby or stuck up, and to really look into my own professional goals. So I set about that. And then a friend, Bolaji, walked into my life. And since then, has stolen my breath away. Thought me to love someone fully and completely. You see I wasn't even attracted to Bolaji to begin with. So we only settled on friendship and from that friendship my most cherished endeavour has grown.

So that, in a convoluted way is our story!

Awww, I can relate. Wasn't attracted to my hubby at all, even when we were dating. He grew on me as the days went by.

@Lady A

Lagos can be crazy, truly understand where you coming from. Love is a feeling and comes in different ways by surprise, one moment you not loving and next you crazy in love...enjoy the ride as you two experience joy and grow together.

@Lady A - i learnt from him that love is not necessarily about those things. What was inside was golden that now it shines on the outside :-)

@YNC - thanks!!! your words mean a lot to me

same exact story, just that he's not my hubby yet. I love your blog. It's exactly what I had in mind when i started mine a few months ago. Do you know of any other blogs like this?
