My Dating experience :My First Love Part 6

The next day, I was waiting for my boyfriend, the agent, anyone Thankfully, he arrived in the afternoon - he went to the agent house for the key before he came. I was so relieved; I hugged him and he joked about me being locked up. I followed him to give the key back to the agent.

We got back to his apartment, spent the night (I think to be honest I can't really remember if that was the day I decided we should break up or if it was the next day - It was probably that day). Before now we barely quarreled because he was far away and I was just tired of being insanely jealous wondering what he is doing when I'm not there. You know what they say; Whenever woman stops complaining or nagging about your behavior, just know that she doesnt care anymore. But most guys think it's because she has found someone else but trust me, it's not always the case. There was a lot of distrust in the relationship that I was losing myself.
Anyways it happened on an afternoon and I said I need to talk to you. We sat on the bed and I asked about our future plans, he said when we get to that bridge we would know how to cross it . And I said but this is my final year and you have another year, what happens next? He said why are you asking this now? I said because I want to know. He kept saying I should relax that we don't have to talk about this now. The thing is I realized each time we talked about our future, he never takes them seriously. I also wondered what being in a relationship with him after school would be like. When I barely had rest of mind while we were together, is it when we are so many kilometers apart that I would be alright would probably have heart attack thinking about his infidelity. So I said: each time I talk about our future you have nothing reasonable to say, Im tired. We need to end this before it gets worse. He said: what gets worse?
Our relationship, its not growing, there are no plans, I might not see you again till God knows when, its better we end it now. - I said

It was raining, so we used that time to talk. When the rain stopped, I took some of my things and left. I told him I love him and this was the hardest thing Id have to do but its right for me. I wasnt happy in the relationship, Ive been fighting myself to be with you, and I don't even know myself anymore. He followed me as I left and begged me to at least stay the night (hoping he could change my mind) but I didn't want to, I was done with him, the apartment, everything. I just needed a fresh start. He shed a tear and pleaded but I asked him to let me go, i just couldnt do it anymore. So I got on a bike and left for my friends apartment. I began to cry on the bike as I left, I wiped my face as I got to my friends apartment. They were around and I just needed someone to give me a hug, I told them about it and they comforted me. I cried all night but they urged me to be strong that I had to prepare for my exams.

My boyfriend called me the next morning (he probably didn't believe I would have the courage to leave him, it probably felt like a dream - it's not like he did anything wrong at that particular time, just accumulation of resentment) and I told him to please stop calling that I have made up my mind...he left the same day.

Though I was going through a breakup, the relationship felt like it was over a long before. And since I had exams to prep for, I didn't need any distractions and I had to place all my energy on passing my exams. A part of me wanted him to fight for me (though I didn't know it at the time),another part of me felt free, like I could be myself again - not centering my life around a guy.

One of my mature friends that date men off campus was kind-of my inspiration; she was independent, knew what she wanted and took life easy. I just wanted to believe there is more to life than being in a relationship that wasn't working, that was toxic and driving me insane.

We were through with our exams and we had our project left to defend. We had three weeks left to defend our project, so my friends and I decided to go on an adventure. That ATC guy: he lives in the northern part of Nigeria, invited members of the club to attend his birthday. So my friends and I hopped on a bus and went. It was a fun birthday, the next day, he took me out and told me he likes me and would like a relationship (I'm pretty sure he said He would like to court meI think). It was cute, he was nice, he wasn't a student, i needed a rebound I accepted.
My boyfriend only called twice since we broke up. Though I said he should not call, I was hurt...you know how girls areI didn't mean he should never call me; I just need some time apart. He didn't really put any effort that it felt like he wanted the breakup as well. With my project, a new guy asking me out and coming to an end of my degree, I didn't think about him much. After a week, we got back for our defense, we did good, said our goodbyes and my friend Agnes and I travelled back to the west.

He was my first love and as they say, you never forget your first. He is married (last year) now, after years of wondering if we would get back together and if he was right for me. The thing is he was the first guy I had sex with and I thought the guy I give my virginity to would be my husband, so it was really hard letting go, I had this fantasy of having a family with him; with four kids in a six bedroom home with an office, tennis court, library, theatre room and a pool. I thought I had figured my future all out but I was wrong, guess its part of growing up right?

Having our own plans not knowing God has a different one for us most times. Did I feel weird when I saw his wedding photos, yeah I did (more like damn he married before me! and he is a guy, lol) but I don't regret that I'm not his wife (I couldnt live with a liar and cheat anyways). After we broke up he had a lot of chances to be with me but he didn't really do much about it, so it was definitely for the best.

Why I Started Blogging

Before I discovered blogging, I enjoyed writing - whether it's my thoughts, my idea of a song, a story or movie synopsis. I knew about websites but had no idea how it works; I would search Google for news (well mostly celeb gossip or anything entertainment) and it gives me different sites to check information).

My dating experience :My First Love Part 5

It was the first semester of my final year,i was preparing for my exams and living with my boyfriend - it wasn't  a wise choice.  Sometimes, we (my boyfriend and I)  would study together, other times I'd go for night class and study there. I got used to my boyfriend not making me a priority, keeping late nights, being too friendly with his female neighbors and probably cheating that I was just not interested anymore. We were just living like roommates...

How is life with you?

Don’t you wish someone would just ask you that? And I’m not saying just for formalities ,like when a guy chat you up and ask “sup”, “how was your day” cause he is just trying to be polite or just thinks that’s what he supposed to do to show that he cares. I’m talking about someone asking “how is life with you” and really mean it. Like they really want to know if you are okay; not just financially, physically and emotionally.

Why do I keep having dreams of my ex?

Okay, since last year I've been having dreams of my ex, who was also my first love . From, my dating experience, you can see why it didn't work out. Though, it was painful but it had to be done. After the breakup, I felt we had unfinished business or some closure to do  that each time we see it doesn't feel like we have. I barely dreamt about him but it became serious beginning of last year, that I had to buzz him on Facebook where he quickly told me he is engaged to be married as if I was trying to get him back. I wasn't trying to get him back, a part of me just wanted to know why I had that first dream which I barely have of him.

My dating experience :My First Love Part 5 {Cont'd}

We arrived for second semester and it was my last semester in that School. I was excited cause I didn't have to worry about getting through with some courses; not like they were hard but you know they are some annoying lecturers that just enjoy failing people while some just want you to bribe them not to...Either way, I was excited but not too excited cause I would miss my friends.

How lonely are you?

Relationship wise, I'm really lonely… well career wise as well. You know, sometimes I want my alone time. Yes I know I want someone in my life but sometimes I think about being with one person for the rest of my life. I know you are wondering if I'm alright,i promise you I am and I want to believe I'm not the only one who feels this way.  Maybe it's because I have not found the right person to be with -being with the right person makes the relationship easier and worthwhile…. At least that's what I want to believe since I have not met the right person yet.
