Atala and I had a shortish and mostly online relationship before getting married, as some of you may already know. He was in the United States and I was in Edinburgh, and he visited only 3 times before we got married after dating for just about 6 months. I want to add that before then we'd known each other for over a year online, and had corresponded as friends for about 6 months before we started dating. But that may not have much to do with this post I'm writing, or does it?
After getting married, we soon found out that marriage can be very complicated. I've heard people who say the first year of marriage is the toughest, however, ours was mostly filled with happy moments, and added to the happiness we both already had in each other, separately and together. In that first year, having date nights at home all the time, and going out regularly was one handy trick I used :)

#FourthofJuly is a holiday in the United States, and we got the day off work yesterday, with which Atala and I basically chilled out. OK, we went shopping at our local African store and then binge watched Sensate on Netflix. Who else has seen the show, and what did you think, we're currently on episode 9. I want to say too much sex, but that can possibly be a good thing, right? LOL...

Do you know what it’s like to be at home alone and bored for a really long time? Not a good feeling I tell you. Immaculate and Peter Ezedinma were one of the most lively and fun couples we had on the show! Immaculate was newlywed and new in the city. Soon after her wedding, she became pregnant and was bored of staying home alone all day when she first heard of the Make Me Fabulous show.

I’m smart, funny, and attractive. I’m humble, successful, and kind. I’m romantic, thoughtful, and trustworthy. I’m sexy, passionate, and fearless. I’m compassionate, honest, and friendly.
How many times have we seen lines like these in online dating profiles? If I had a nickel for every time I saw what I call an “empty adjective,” I’d be a very rich lady. What is an empty adjective? It’s a word that you use to describe yourself that can’t be proven until someone gets to know you.

This originally came in as a comment on the post about Nigerian men making good husbands on Can A Typically Traditional Nigerian Man Make A Good Husband? It seems this writer has not had a good experience. Read on...
He would also do things on purpose by carrying out drama. When I would cook a meal for both of us. He would turn around and cook himself something else different. So I decided to keep the argument down. I would just prepare a meal for myself. And when I would do that he would ask me where his dinner is? Always making it his business to irritate the situation.

It is no secret that Nigeria undergoes the fast process of development. Today this country is no longer on the outskirts of the world. In fact, it has become one of the largest newsmakers in Africa. Its economy has outgrown the one of South Africa and it is becoming one of the key affluent players in this region.
This is one reason why I have decided to write about the Naij.com and the importance of finding the latest Nigerian news on Naij. The other reason is that Nigeria is the country I love the best and presently living miles and miles away from it I still daily look up the latest Nigerian news online.
