Some 10 young Nigerians opened up on the things they did in the name of love, and got burnt as a result.
Love itself may not be crazy, but it surely makes you people crazy stuff.
That’s why you’re happily doing with that your partner, what you swore to your friends to never do in a relationship.
Of course no one is judging here. We perfectly understand that those are some of the things that happen when love is on the brain.
That’s the explanation for why this Japanese princess chose to be with her fiancee, even though it would cost her her place in the Japanese monarchy.
And it is exactly what once gave birth to the #NeverAgainBro hashtag on Twitter, where babes and guys are reminiscing on some of the hurt they suffered for being ‘too in love.’
So, as it has been since the days of old, it remains till this day. Adam and Prince Paris may be long gone, but love is still making people do outrageous things, and here are some of them, provided by young Nigerians.
1. Scammed my parents
I scammed my parents for money in Uni and bought my boyfriend a 43K wrist watch.
I actually do not regret it. – Adeola.
I and my boyfriend had an agreement that if any of our parents say no to us getting married, we will elope, get married and have a child before returning.
He’s a Muslim, I’m a Christian.
3. Help my crush get her crush
I was a poet back in High School. I’ll write poems for my crush to give her crush. – @iamtopmaestro on Twitter.
4. Spent my allowance on calls
My daily allowance in uni was about 3k per day.
I spent most of that calling my boyfriend who was abroad at the time.
5. An apartment for his sidechick
I borrowed nearly half a million for him to rent an apartment because he got a new job in a new city.
Dude actually moved into the new apartment with his baby mama – @therealsoba on Twitter.
6. Lost my prized guitar
I’d saved all my stipends to buy a guitar and because I was eyeing one babe, I gave the guitar to her brother who has never returned it till this day.
Of course, I never even got to date the babe. Smh – Chinedu.
7. A dangerous inter-state trip
8. Risked my relationship to meet my ex
I had not properly gotten over my ex and I actually still loved him despite having another boyfriend who was, to be honest, very caring and nice.
So I agreed to travel all the way from Jos to Lagos by road to meet my ex after lying to both my boyfriend and my NYSC supervisor.
He cancelled the trip at the last minute. I really would have gone because I was still so in love with him.
9. Risked my education for him
I abandoned my med classes to do final year project for final year engineering student.
I’d wash clothes, cook and clean daily. – @Yemithatiscray on Twitter.
10. I was just her airtime supply
Then I dated Nurphisat Busty. Ha mo ma jiya o! [How I really suffered!]
She even saved my name with “credit boy – @Yomiscream on Twitter.
