I spent the last 36 hours trying to find out why my girl dumped me. So far nothing, she doesn’t wanna pick my calls or reply any of my texts. It’s exasperating what I’m feeling right now. When someone breaks up with you, they usually tell you the reason right? Guess mine was different, all I got was ‘I can’t have a relationship with you anymore, I’m sorry’. I wonder if this was supposed to make me feel better especially with how I ended ties between Eve and I.
I talked to a close friend about this. And as expected he laughed at me. He said I should have paid attention to Eve when my girl wasn’t giving me attention. He said if a girl stops giving you attention it means she’ll soon dump you. But on the other hand he said, “As bad as this looks, you can still turn things around if you’re bold enough, if you swallow your pride and ask for forgiveness from Eve maybe she might take you back”.
As crazy as this sounds, I liked the idea, maybe Eve still likes me. Later in the afternoon, I tried calling Eve’s phone several times, but none of my calls were returned and she ‘blueticked’ my messages. I understood everything she was doing, she threw herself at me, but I let her fall, so I knew she’ll do everything possible to ignore me so that she wouldn’t appear cheap. That’s what I thought.
Eve hasn’t returned any of my calls. So I swallowed my pride just as my friend advised and decided to confront her face-to-face, that way we could talk about what happened to between us and possibly put measure in place to forgive and forget so we could all live happily ever after. I got to Eve’s house, she sees me and first thing she says is, “what do you want?”, I thought it was a bit hostile but I understood her outrage, so I swallowed my pride, humbled myself and apologized.
I knelt down in front of Eve and asked for forgiveness
I said, “I’m apologizing to you because I feel really bad, thinking about the way I hurt you makes my heart ache. I’m so sorry for all the hurt I’ve caused you and I regret the things I said. I lost that one girl who really loved me because of my immaturity. Baby I feel so bad right now because I tore your world apart and now all I can think about is how I broke your heart. These tears that run down my cheek are filled with sadness and hurt, I messed up big time, but now I see that you mean the absolute world to me…”
She was about to say something but I told her to wait, I wasn’t done, I continued, “…I know sorry isn’t enough because I screwed up! But for what’s it worth, I wanna let you know I really had a great time with you at the beach the other time, you remember how u smiled and laughed at me? It was beautiful, it’s one of the best moment of my life…what I really want to say is that I’m so sorry, I know that you didn’t deserve to be hurt like that, I know I don’t deserve you, and I know you can find someone better than me, I hope you find someone who will love you and treat you right and make you happy, and I hope he doesn’t hurt you like I did…”
At this point, Eve’s eyes were teary, I sense that she could cry any moment from now, but I continued, “…I’m so sorry for everything I said, all I have to say is that, I love you and I’m so sorry babe”. Eve then lifts me up, hugs me and cries on my shoulders and says, “I forgive you and I also missed you too”….I waiver a sign of relief, I now know all hope isn’t lost.
Eve asked me to spend the night with her, she said she’ll cook dinner for me, then later we could watch a movie together and later on we can shower together”. I felt really good about how things turned out between Eve and I, we rekindled our old love. And I was sure our love will last long and happily ever after.
48 hours later, Eve dumped me. So what happened was, I told Eve I broke up with my girl, which was obviously a lie, my girl dumped me, but I didn’t tell Eve that, I thought she might not reconsider my proposal if I told her I was dumped, but 48hours later, she finds out from that friend of mine who told me to reconnect with Eve that I was dumped, and now Eve dumps me for saying a little tiny winnie lie. Eve argued that if my girl hadn’t left me I wouldn’t have left her, and I’d probably be with her right now, and the only reason I came back to her was that, my sorry ass was dumped. She wants nothing to do with me now. This is what happens when you swallow your pride
I’ve been feeling very miserable about the whole Eve and my girl thing so I changed my whatsapp status to, “hey, guess what?…I’m single”, I thought that would make me feel better but it didn’t. Losing Eve and my girl gave me a whole new perspective of relationships.
I got a message in the evening, it said, “hey…funny status”, I replied, “loool, yeah I guess”, it continued by saying, “what happened?”, I wasn’t really in the mood to talk about it so I just said, “hmm long story, really not in the mood to talk to about”, a reply came saying, “okay sorry”, then I said, “aww you don’t need to apologize, I’m just not feeling alright, please don’t take it the wrong way”, I got a reply saying, “okay”.
15 minutes later, I got another message from this same person, “I have a secret I wanna tell you”, the message sounded very interesting, so I decided to give it a little attention, so I replied, “feel free, let’s hear it”…I waited for close to 5 minutes and the person was still typing the message, I figured maybe it was a story or poetry submission. But finally the message came through, it said, “I think I’m in love with you”
I was stunned! I least expected a message like this. The problem was, I didn’t know whom I was chatting with, and yes, I haven’t saved the number, and I didn’t recognize the number too. But from our chat history, it showed that we had brief chats occasionally, but no personal details were shared. Unfortunately this number had a meme as a DP so it was extremely difficult to know who exactly I was chatting with, but I played along.
I sent a message saying, “oh wow! Really? Since when?”, I was really excited, must admit, I was flattered, I mean, how many times do you get people to tell you, they love you? Especially when you just got out of a relationship? i figured a crush was taking advantage of me being single to confess their love for me, besides I announced to the world via my whatsapp status saying I was single, and if someone is reacting to it, I guess it should make me happy.
The reply said, “I’ve been in love with you for a long time now”. So I asked, “why didn’t you tell me that long time?”, the reply was, “I was feeling shy”, then I said, “aww don’t be shy okay, you can tell me anything okay”, the reply was, “okay, so what do you think now?”, I answered, “you know what, you just told me right now, so I was thinking, maybe we should take it slow, get to know more about each other first, then maybe we could see if this will work, what do you think?”, she replied, “okay I hear”.
Then I continued, “so in the mean time, why don’t you send me some recent pic of you, I just wanna see something”, the reply was, “hmmm I don’t have any pics on my phone ooh, the ones I had was on my SD card, and that one sef, the card is corrupted”, I just laughed to myself, I cant believe this girl was trying to use this stale pickup line on me, I mean if you don’t wanna send me your pic, you could just say so, instead of using this old line on me. So I told her, “okay, then just snap a new pic for me right now”, the she said, “okay, let me go to facebook and get you some of my pics there”, so I said, “okay that’ll be nice”.
Seven minutes later, I get 4 different pictures, so I downloaded them, and I asked her, “is he your brother?” she replies, “No, that’s me”, I get confused so I ask, what is your facebook ID, she replies, “Paul Edem BlackArrow”, I almost peed in my pants, so I ask for confirmation, “are you a guy?”, he says yes, I asked him if he knows whom he’s chatting with, he says no, I almost start to cry ,apparently this secret admirer/crush is a guy. See what happens when you think unsaved numbers on your whatsapp list is dope?
