Hello my dear reader, my Christian name is Janet and I am 30 years old and single at the moment.
I know you may be thinking over why a 30 year old woman is still unmarried even though she is beautiful.
Please I do not think I can answer that question, but I just wanted to get you informed on what happened to my last failed relationship.
During my first year at the university, I came across John. He is tall and so handsome that I could not even take my eyes off him.
I prayed to myself that he would come and engage me in a chart.
Oh My God! Pardon me for my manners … how did we meet at all?
It was a friend’s birthday and infact he was a celebrity friend.
The whole thing was just like magic because we connected right away.
We love each other and are always seen together.
As a matter of truth we are the perfect match, as our friends and neighbors always say.
We dated from one year to last year and continued with our relationships even after our school.
7 years after that relationship, I began to worry where it was going because by then many of my friends who started their relationship when I was home I had settled down with their partners.
During that moment, I seemed to be the only one on the market.
I remember very well that because of my mother, I could not just go home to my parents.
She would make fun of me because I could not discover a husband.
I must confess that the pressure is tremendous from all angles.
I often question John on when we are getting married.
The answer is always “I have to be patient with him for a while.” Hmmmm.
Money does not matter if you have those thoughts. John is doing pretty well for himself.
He earns over N200,000 a month from his job, and the company offers him with a car and legal residence so money is never a problem.
I endured and stayed with John until the tenth (10) anniversary of our date when John finally got engaged.
I am so much excited, I finally got married, I can now boldly walk the streets with my head held high and show off with my very expensive ring in my hand, I thought inwardly.
We plan all weddings together. The date has been arranged and everything is well arranged.
But when I got my breakthrough, I never realised that the earth would one day open up to devour my entire being.
2 days before our wedding, my cell phone was within range while John was away.
She is on a business trip and is expected to happen the day before the wedding.
It is very urgent. I rush to my cell phone, pick it up, and see what really shakes me like thunder.
The message read, “Janet, sorry to say this now, but I plan on saying it, I cannot go on. I think you will find the right man for you.
My world is breaking before my eyes. What kind of shame is that?
How can I meet my mother and friends? Why is John doing this to me after I sacrificed everything for him? and I’ will tell you about her son shortly after our wedding.
This incident occured three years ago when John was still looking for work, we met and later discovered that I was pregnant. I thought to tell myself about it, but my friend advised me not to surprise him.
We came up with a plan. I had to lie to John that I was going to Abuja to learn his craft for the next year.
Everything went according to plan, my aunt and girlfriend played their roles very effectively.
After giving birth, I left the baby with my aunt and returned to Lagos. So far, John didn’t pay attention to his son.
I would never have expected that from John. Even though I felt bad, I decided to continue with my baby. At 30 years old it would be hard to find a man, but I swore I would never tell him about my son. This will be my little secret that makes me want to die!
Please I beg you, Share your thoughts on this!
Thanks for reading.
