"you came along,
proved me wrong
I thought that
I could never find,
U are the only one
who makes life fun
U're the only one of your kind
U are my dream come true..."
Lagbaja & Ego - Dream Come True
So, I'm a late bloomer.
Yea, everything happens to me later than they do my peers. Seriously! BUT, when they start happening, they/it/whatever happen/happens in chunks...masses...avalanche(s) (is there a plural for that? *shrugs*)
For example, it took me FOREVER to get this body! I think my curves have been growing one inch a year since i hit puberty, and guess what? I think my body is still developing at 25 (maybe I'm an exception to the rule...lol)
Same with male attention, it started coming late, which i didnt really mind cuz i was a "prude". I mean I still think it's shallow of guys to wait for me to sprout breast and grow hips before homing in but I understand...hehe.
So now @ 25, two ex-boyfriends, three years of self-inflicted singleness later, I finally meet someone who's making my heart bloom again and it starts to pour, again! How come they never swarm like this when one is single and not "hearting" anyone? mcheew
You know what I think? I think men can "smell" when a female is "feeling" and I propound that THAT is when they find females most attractive! Anybody with a contrary opinion?
Please find below the list of the men who have suddenly appeared in the last three months, especially within the last month (when I finally agreed that I do love someone)
THE ONE WHO PROPOSED ON FB
Meeting point: Work (ex-office)
Stats: tall, dark, handsome,older and wears asphyxiating perfumes.
Summary: sought me out on fb and wrote "na me go marry u" along with his friends request.
Verdict: In his mind!
THE ONE WHO WANTED ALL MY ATTENTION
Meeting point: A friend (I so hate match-making!)
Stats: tall enough, dark, older and okay looking.
Summary: He decided I was the one he's been waiting for his whole life, and proceeded to call all the time and ask to kiss me on second meeting!we drifted apart, until he started calling again recently.
Verdict: who be fool? (he also had a sort-of-girlfriend, HELLO!)sorry, not looking for an overgrown baby.
THE ONE WITH THE GUN
Meeting Point: New Job
Stats: Tall enough, WHITE, older and over-tanned
Summary: He's around for three months and his job requires a really cute pistol in his back pocket at work. Has invited me to two restaurants (maybe he thinks all black girls are cheap) and stalks me at work.
Verdict: I lost interest in white guys when I once tried to kiss one and could not find his lips! I like them plum and juicy mehn. I still love half-caste babies, but maybe I'll adopt one or marry a Spaniard / Italian, the languages make their mouths more bearable. Sorry dude, I'm a lip racist! plus, the gun freaks me out.
THE ONE WHO PESTERS MY FRIEND
Meeting Point: Once at Shoprite
Stats: Can't even remember
Summary: He is a colleague of my friend's. She IMed two weeks ago to say he's been pestering to be formally introduced to me.
Verdict: Sorry dude, my heart's taken.
THE SECRET ADMIRER
Meeting Point: work
Stats: Don't know
Summary: got a call from a colleague asking if i had a boyfriend. I said maybe, asked why and she said I have a secret admirer bla bla.
Verdict: Something tells me it's the dude with the gun but I'm not sure. Whoever it might be, sorry dude, I like my men bold PLUS my heart's taken.
THE ONE WHO FELL FOR ME IN THREE DAYS
Meeting Point: Work
Stats: 6"4, dark, older and cute
Summary: met him at work and actually gave him my number on the same day, because he seemed sensible and cool. Three days worth of calls later, he says he is falling for me and making out with me in his head! plus, he has a Caucasian fiance o, whom he said he told about me, "e gba mi" (somebody save me).
Verdict: Dude, I don't "boyfriend-snatch". I also think you should pick one race and stick with it. I think u are nice though but even if u didn't have a fiance and were not so confused, my heart's taken.
THE ONE MY COUSINS ARE ADVOCATING FOR
Meeting Point: My cousin's house
Stats: tall, dark, older nd handsome
Summary: My cousins started off teasing us both and we hit it off. Found out later that he has a girlfriend who is in the UK. I think she's a lucky girl.
Verdict: Maybe if the circumstances were different... just maybe... but my heart's taken and so should yours be.
THE SPECIAL ONE
Verdict: Somehow u did it dude, despite the fact that you are not quite like the guys I've dated or crushed on, YOU STOLE MY HEART, and guess what? I'm not sure I want it back!
HAPPY EASTER PEEPS, SORRY I'VE BEEN MIA, INTERNET ISSUES AND OTHER STORIES. Sorry if the post is long...it should make up for the two weeks without posts...lol
