A friend of mine told me her neighbour saw my picture, likes me and wanted my number. I was sceptical because I hated hookups. I just laughed about it and changed the topic.

Two weeks later, she told me he still wanted my number. I asked her a couple of questions about him and I decided to give it a try. He didn't call me.

Two days later, I saw a missed call on my phone. My mind told me it was him and True Caller confirmed my suspicion. I didn't call back, I texted him on whatsapp. Lol. He introduced himself and honestly, we didn't get along for more than a week.

I think he got frustrated and let me be for some days, that was when I started missing his annoying self. I texted him and he was surprised I was actually texting him.

Fast forward to some days later, he asked me out on a date and I said yes. The day we went out was the first time we were seeing or hearing each other. He was tall, dark and handsome,just like I wanted.

He was also shy, which was cute. There was an obvious attraction, but he was such a gentleman and very different from other guys.

A few months before then, the word marriage didn't quite go down well with me but meeting Tolu changed everything. He met my parents a few months later to let them know his intentions. We had our ups and downs but in less than a year, we walked down the aisle.
