Love is a beautiful thing, it is something we have always heard.


What they didn’t tell us is that seeking the validation of others (lovers) in order for us to feel good is a time bomb that’s just waiting to explode.

What happens when the one you love who has made you feel good about yourself, says goodbye to you?

It leaves our world shattered and empty like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel…

Why am i talking about love?

It wasn’t love at first sight for us tho, we had this connection through our conversations that grew gradually…

We would talk everyday at different hours, unending chats as minutes turning into hours, the end never seemed close.

As days went by, i realized this connection was special and i was elated at the thought of giving love a chance again having finally found one or so i thought.

Patiently, i had waited for this day to come when I’d finally have that connection made in heaven for someone after being a bit unfortunate in my previous relationships…

He understood me perfectly and gave me all the attention i felt i wanted.

I looked forward to sharing my daily routine with him and also hearing about his .

We would laugh and talk like we knew ourselves from the womb.

Thoughts of him clouded my thinking and hearing his voice gave me butterfly in my stomach.


As the days went by, I assumed he felt the same way .

There was one little challenge, i had never seen him in person .

We were far from each other physically tho our hearts connected whenever we spoke.

We would share pictures and videos and hype each other.

And then i proceeded to ask if he felt the same way, and his response shattered my heart.

I knew his fears and reservations .

It was all a mirage.

Love went sour leaving me heartbroken .

I had been pushed to the zone almost everyone dreads.

And then i had to withdraw and go back to my shell.

I had been shoved to the friend zone againπŸ˜”.

Well, back among the sheaves, I’m here hopefully waiting for my next opportunity of a shot at love, but for the meantime i’ll keep admiring the loved up couples i see and await Cupid’s arrow of LoveπŸ’–πŸ’–..

  1. I don’t think he did anything wrong,
    You only Assumed he felt the same way about you,
    And when you finally Asked, you didn’t like the response you got,

    He was only being Honest about the Way he felt, would you rather prefer he Lies to you and then Break your heart properly Later on??

    I don’t think he’s obliged to feel the same way you do, until ge says that he does.

  2. This piece is good and lovely.
    Sometimes when we like/love someone, we tend to think they are doing the same to us. Yes actions speak louder than words, in this thing called “love” it’s better not to assume so we don’t feel hurt or rejected by someone. Be open-minded until you’re certain and confident enought to know that yes she loves me or he loves me.
    Take things slowly, don’t be on a fast lane. You’ll definitely get to your destination.

  3. Girllll, this struggle is real.

    You finally find someone you really like and you are not sure he feels the same way about you.

    I’m in the same dilemma but I’m not asking questions, neither am I expecting too much, it’s a very hard place to be in.

    Here is some love for youπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  4. Another perspective, some friends believe the feelings are mutual when they see the both of you together, so when you proceed to the next stage of courtship, then it will be crystal clear to you, she has ‘ friend zoned’ you and your friends assertions where wrong, the feelings ain’t mutual after all.

    Nice write up!
