Their love story as shared by Amara:
Our love story is one of the ones that sprung up during the covid 2020 lockdown. He had sent me a message in February but I didn’t pay much attention to it till one of those days in April. I decided to check my Facebook messenger to kill boredom, and then I replied to him. He was so happy I finally responded to his messages and we started chatting, but I wasn’t paying much attention to our conversations. He would always ask me why I ignored him. I never believed in online relationships because of previous bad experiences and also being the boss lady that I am. 😂 He literally begged for my phone number for months which I refused to give him and this made us fight a lot. I finally agreed that I would give him the number after our first date.
On the agreed day, which was after 3 months, he got to the venue before me and kept calling and texting me on Facebook messenger. I ignored him. He waited for hours and left the venue. I never showed up. The bad experiences I have had contributed to my laxity towards men. We scheduled another meeting for the next month which I also didn’t show up for. He asked for me to visit him on several occasions, but I refused. Months later, I finally decided to stop punishing him. He was consistent and didn’t want to give up. I made up my mind that I would see him. I showed up three hours late.
An exquisite Igbo bride in all her glory!
He kept calling me to know why I was late. He was already in his car waiting for me because he got tired of waiting inside the venue. I walked straight to his car and opened his door. He was so quiet, stepped down from the car calmly and said he was tired of waiting inside so he had to go back to the car. He asked if I wanted to go inside the venue or change to another location. I met a gentleman with a good manner of approach. A strong girl fell already, coupled with his cute face and sexy looks. I offered him some coffee in my hot flask, he took it and I accepted to go to another place with him. We drove to my house together, I parked my car and joined his car and then, the rest they say is history. I fell in love with a gentleman. A calm to my storm. I felt at peace and going on this journey with him is one of my best decisions ever.
Let’s check out Nonso as he also gets ready for the big day…
Here’s how Nonso popped the question:
On my birthday day, the 8th of October 2021, he took me to the Maldives to celebrate with me and gave me luxury treats. One dinner during the trip, he made a special beach dinner set up for two and popped the question. Of course, I said YES!
Time to celebrate! But first, let’s take in this amazing trad decor…
