Their love story as shared by Victoria:
Years ago, I had just arrived in London for an event organized by the company I worked with. After a long day at the exhibition centre, I went to the lobby to rest a little and was just playing on Tinder. I swiped right on a few guys and went back to work. A few minutes later, my phone was buzzing with notifications from Tinder and I just didn’t know how to turn it off. I decided to take a peek, and realized my little right swipe on a few guys wasn’t few – I swiped right a tad too much. I replied few messages and continued working. The buzzing sound from Tinder didn’t stop even after putting my phone on vibration, it was incessant and started to annoy me.. so I deleted the app. I almost missed my husband because of this. Thank God for Instagram! 🤣
So, my hubby’s friend was one of the guys texting me on Tinder before I deleted it. I didn’t even get to see or reply to his messages. Anyway, his friend took screenshots of my pictures alongside my bio and sent them to my hubby telling him how beautiful I looked, how I was his complete spec and how I’m Nigerian and whatnot. My hubby was obviously mesmerized. I mean he came looking for me on Instagram, found me and send several DMs. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see or reply to his DMs on time. I eventually opened his messages and I was just stunned by his approach.. so respectful, humorous, classy and too cute. We chatted… Oh, how he made me laugh, I laughed so hard! 24 hours later, he asked me out on a date! My Oga no just waste time. Lol.
The first date was so good, that we had 3 dates in a week! I was so comfortable with him, it felt like I’d known him for years. There was nothing we didn’t talk about, I told him everything and about everyone that has been annoying me. The ones I wanted to fight and the ones he said he was going to join me to fight. Lol. After the event, I left Uk and I just couldn’t get over the first kiss we shared and all the lovely moments we had. The chemistry we had was too strong that I couldn’t bear surviving another month without being in his arms, despite the long hours of phone/video calls.
A month later, I just had to secure the next available flight to London, because I couldn’t spend Christmas without him. He was so thrilled to see me. That was my best Christmas holiday ever, he asked me to be his girlfriend! And I didn’t want the holiday to end. Throughout our years of dating, it was Rosy and Thorny. We had lots of love and fights. I said yes to the only man whose love for me knows no bounds, my forever love, my emerald.
