How We Met:

We met in September 2009 when we resumed at the Lagos Business School. I will say it wasn’t love at first sight but our friendship kicked off almost immediately. I like the fact that he was very playful yet very smart too which made it hard for me to believe him when he started making his moves towards dating. Our friendship grew overtime and I decided to “honor his request”.I thank God for how far he has lead us. I’m happy I took that decision because I haven’t had any reason to regret it and going forward I know I won’t.

The Proposal.

It was during one of his official assignments to lagos. He suggested we should have dinner during the week which was fine by me. Unfortunately on the set day, he closed late from work so I blanked the possibility of going out. He kept apologizing and saying we could still make it and in my mind I was like ‘why must we go for this dinner?’. He eventually persuaded me so we headed to Oriental Hotel. Dinner was fun as we talked a lot having not seen each other in d past few months.Amidst all this I looked away for a moment and turning around, I see him holding a ring and he pops the question. I was so shocked when I saw the ring “staring” in my face because I wasn’t expecting it that soon and I also don’t know how I didn’t notice his bulging pocket. After a few seconds, I stretched out my hand in acceptance. He then came over to my side of the table and did it the right way by going on his knees.That’s surely a day to remember – November 8,2012!
