Nigerian guys are really starting to get creative when it comes to proposing – aww!
So this couple Richards
Ugochukwu and his fiancée Ihuoma, are presently trending on twitter….they have got an amazing and aww-racious love story!
They met on Twitter 2 years ago – they got chatting, their casual chats moved from
Twitter to Facebook, Facebook to BBM, then they met in real life and today,
Richards surprisingly proposed to Ihuoma.
He began the proposal by telling their beautiful love story on twitter – he started last night and ended it this morning by asking her to marry him….aww!
Richard: “So tonight, I want to take a while to recount how i met someone special on twitter about 2yrs ago. I met someone really special. Someone who has changed on world! Someone who words fail me when i try to describe…with just a click of the follow button 2yrs ago, i never knew i had let love into my life!
Love came in form of her! In the beginning she was just one of my followers.
the number of people who followed me and i follow – tweeting and retweeting
stuffs that perhaps made some or no sense. In the beginning, i would tweet just to help me thru my shifts at the biscuit company where i was a quality control officer. But then this girl! This pretty girl happened.
ridiculous specifications. And this girl again picked my tweet and sent a
DM. In her DM she said she had one for me: a girl friend. Apparently she wanted to hook me up with her friend…..Ok fast forward…..this girl and i start a DM roll!
stopped writing, and then i added her on Facebook so she could read some
more stuffs i had written. And at a point, she sent a bold DM saying she was tired of ‘DMing’ and asked that we move to BBM.
and i found myself looking forward to close of day, where i could tell
her how it went and chat with her. It was barely 3 months since i had resumed a new job in the bank and i was in training school. And this girl……
my mind! It was October…..and while my training classes r on, i will
sneak to the bathroom to chat with her.
I called it a bathroom Break. She was slowly becoming an addiction.
was sweet. Always having an opinion abt everything especially if it
involved the roles of men and women.
bus to work, as i settled in the training academy, during each break,
and as i rode the bus home it was with her
she tidied, as she cooked…..i was with her….our feelings were
beginning to Fly Aero. Enugu to lagos
like she did on her avatar and her Dp on BBM. This was some sort a blind
date.loll. Make e be say na mbe ooo.
coming vehicles while i tried to examine wetin i don go pursue
again!…then i thought to myself……. Then i tot to myself: you r not a complete package, u r not d answer to every woman’s prayer. You r not beckham or beckford….
road, to where Ihuoma stood, not minding that she wasn’t as tall as i
wished or the poise of a model….I made up my mind: and so i reached out for her, and she took my hands.
And from that day, i had not looked back. I made a choice.A choice to love her jst the way she is! To love her with all her imperfections, perfectly.
by the beach side, to make it official i asked her to be more to me,
than just a follower on twitter …..To be more than just a contact on BBM but to be my girlfriend. Oct.27.2012
began this journey to forever. The story gets better…….but i’ll
stop here until the sky sees the sun!*pics mic* where did i stop yesterday….. So yea, October 27, 2012. She became my girl friend, this girl i met on twitter. Our first date at beach, and
she won’t even let me kiss her! Assin!!! Who does she think she is?
Every girl kisses richie on the 1st date.
to see d end of this one o! My mind been don dey am! She must fall.No be
stone, na beans, one day e must doneAnd so i tried to massage my ego, after she don fall my hand. I jst go drop am for her uncle house. Screech commot!
come and visit me while i was training on the job in VI. Sometimes
she’d bring a chinese meal for lunch.
think like a man and act like a woman had been released and i saw this
movie. I tot she was acting the script.

or anything nollywood will teach u!
Fast forward: months went by,
and our love has crossed all the boundaries.

girl i met on twitter had stolen my heart!In igbo: e ri go m beluso m! In yoruba: Mo ti je efo! In calabar: erm, it sounds like this: ikongnomi!!

breath. This girl i met on twitterThis girl i met on twitter, instead of a 5 star dinning, who cook me a 7 star meal and serve me in my bed.
