How We Met

How We Met

I had just moved to Philadelphia about 2months prior and was still getting to know people around the area. On this faithful evening in October, a new friend I had met, Chisom, came to show me around. However, before heading out into the city he decided to take me to see a buddy of his [This would be Yomi].

Yomi, boo mi!! We have come a LONG LONG Way, through the ups and the downs, the laughter, the tears, the silent moments, the happy moments; we have made it this far. God really had a hand in our relationship! I am so thankful to God for allowing you into my life at the time that I needed you the most.

Anywho, fast forward to the rest of the evening, he was bugging me for my phone number, I’m telling you, dude was relentless!!!.....lol but I refused seeing that I had just met him and I believed if he really wanted my number, he could ask Chisom for it. Unknown to me, he did already ask Chisom for permission to talk to me, but of course I had to form like a correct babe.

Long story short, I guess his bugging got to me, that I decided to just get him off my case and I gave him my email address, thinking “he won’t really email, no one emails in these situations”…WRONG!!! He was in Nigeria for his cousin’s wedding and emailed me unexpectedly.

Next thing we know, we are emailing back and forth and became pretty good friends. A decent while later, while we were studying together, I for a test at school and he supposedly studying for his GMAT, he proceeds to ask me to be his girlfriend (see attached picture of the sheet of paper)….. Coz I was honestly surprised at the question, I didn’t pick an option lol. Apparently, what I said was “Oh, Gosh! You’ve got to be kidding me!” lol. Anyways, I said yes and here we are 3+yrs later and excited to commit our lives to each other.
