The Matchmaking Birthday Girl



Welcome back to work y'all. Hope the weekend was groovy? My friend F'Banj turned thirty something on Saturday and she decided to have a small 'thing'. Mehn... the small thing was a big thing oh. First, it became almost like a multiple date, see couples everywhere...


F'Banj is a lot older than I am and most of the attendees were her husband's friends, people with about 5 - 10 years marriage experience. So as you can imagine most of the gists were marriage/family oriented. I had an ear-ful. It was fun sha, except that I came alone and everyone was just asking about 'him'. BTW, why cant people just believe when you tell them you're not seeing anyone at the moment?

Ehen, so the real gist for today is about the stunt my friend tried pulling. Apparently, her husband's childhood friend was in town and he needed to hook him up... you can guess who the victim was. She knows I hate matchmaking but her husband persuaded her... so na so e dey be? My friend just fall my hand for love sake.

The guy's spoken English is to die for, no fake accents, but issues plenty... he is about a decade or more older. The difference is just too much for me jare, especially because he doesn't seem to know anything about my generation. Not music, not fashion, according to him he's passionate about Real Estate... shey na only house matta we go dey yarn? As if that wasn't bad enough, wait for this...

he doesn't believe in God... #EpicFail!

How can?

On a normal day, I wouldn't subscribe to a long distance relationship, then you cap it up by being years older. He doesn't even watch football, or any sports for that matter... ahan... where is the fun in his life then?

That Athiest bit just killed the whole conversation... trust me, I stylishly discharged the brother and moved on to better things, which in this case was... well the cake and dance floor.

I had fun sha, but F'Banj will hear it from me the next time we have our ladies' day out!

You need to have seen him talk, u could hear the passion form a million miles away. But as soon as he mentioned his no-God state of mind, i just logged out.

Was the real estate talk to impress you? Think he missed by far. There has to be more to life than materialistic stuff right? Anyway the No-God thing was a dead down over. What's people and matchmaking for convenience of getting two random singles together?! is that how they met their mates? Not fair at all.

Yes he was, someone must have told him girls like mature men but he obviously didnt get the memo that first impression shld not be business oriented and stiff.

As for matchmaking... it just gets me angry esp cos most times d ppl involved are so wrong for each other
