Tilewa and Opemipo's love story is like something from romance novel, but it is so real and very sweet.
It all began when Ope got a BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) friend request which she had been expecting. Her heart began to race. A friend of hers named Kunle, told her that he'd given her BB pin to a friend, Tilewa, whom he described as a cute guy.
The name intrigued her because it was not a common one, and she had been looking forward to meeting him. She loved uncommon things, names and mystery.
On the other hand, Tilewa had also heard a lof of wonderful things about Opemipo. He had stared at her picture for a long time, mesmerized by the twinkles in her eyes - from the smile that set her face aflame.
It almost seemed as if her eyes stared into his soul and he felt the warmth wash over him. There was something about her that sucked him in and he wanted to - no, needed to get to know her more.
Seconds after sending her the BBM invite, she accepted, and the connection was instant from the first 'Hi'. They chatted for several hours. They were like two long lost friends that had finally reconnected and were catching up.
There were no boundaries, as they talked about everything and it was with great sadness that they bade each other 'goodnight' that first night.
They found in each other an addiction that was both intoxicating and exhilarating. It was a 'high' that continued to grow as they got to know each other more. That same 'high' created a desire for something stronger.
"I want her face to be the last thing I see as I float into dream land," Tilewa said with a wide grin.
"Being with him brings me so much joy," Opemipo declares. "I can't wait to get married to my better half," she added with bubbling laughter.
A look at these two will make it very obvious to any one that they are very much in love and can't wait to spend their whole lives together.
