Why will you do that?

Watched a movie about a guy who promised to marry a gal come rain or shine…only for him to find out about this gal's "slightly” colourful past. Guess what my guy did? He did nothing o…He just travelled out to Yankee (he was about to go before he heard anyways) without confronting the issue and left the gal to roast for years.
Babe was waiting for bobo and fending off all suitors just because of Yankee love o! Inspite of the fact that guy hadn't communicated in ages. This movie just got me thinking like crazy! Why do we make promises we can't keep...or why do we not own up once we realise we can't keep the promise. Poor chic was left hanging like a pendulum forever because of Yankee bobo.Only for him to come back with another mgbeke hanging on his arm...

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying the gal did well by hiding her past from the guy…now that's another epistle for another day 'cos I have my take on that! He should have set the gal free before he travelled…at least let her know that you know what she's hiding instead of keeping her hanging to what is not. I see this happening around me all the time; probably not the same story line but quite related...why will you tell someone you'll be there for them for the rest of your life when you know it's a mirage and it will never happen...

Maybe I am just naïve and I don't understand the way this things work…maybe I like to look at the world through a rose tinted glass or maybe I feel/believe a certain level of integrity is expected from every individual regardless of your creed, your belief, your colour or your gender…

Guess what the gal ended up doing? She poisoned herself and the guy together…so they died together...that brings me to another gist entirely o…

Why do gals do that? Commit suicide over one guy? (Tufi akwa! God forbid strange thing! Hian!!!) When there are a million and one lovely brovas out there…my heart actually gave me the answer before I even finished typing…it’s because there can never be any one like you…why does life have to be so complicated…

First time reader here and I picked a great entry to visit! I agree with you that integrity and transparency should be the goals of any relationship, and her bobo didn't do well by not telling her that he was no longer interested (and yes, she should have been more honest too) but this girl should have contacted him when she didn't hear anything from him o!

(lol, this is sort of related to the first comment you left on my blog, about you not letting the guy know whether you're interested or not!)

Anyways, I mean seriously, she should have said "Ok, you seemed to be so into me and now we're not talking. What's up?" if he doesn't respond with anything that makes sense she should let him know that she'll be moving on. Life is too short jo!

I don't understand why someone would kill themself over (losing) a guy (I can understand feeling like you want to but actually doing it? No thanks!) Life is too precious to me to let one (albeit crushing) incident make me want to off myself.

@ goodnaijagirl: sorry I forgot to add that she called the guy and they were kinda cool for the first three months...thereafter bobo just became incommunicado...as in no calls no mails no nada!
the level of commitment was high before he left o! not the "we are checking each other out" level...
Trust me I am old school like that about relationships!lol...maybe if i drink about 10bottles of Chardonnay...that will sort me out..lol
thanks for visiting my blog!

If there's anything i know about myself, its that i could never commit suicide for a guy. End this precious gift God has given me cuz of a guy? it cant happen. If he wants to walk, let him walk, abeg.Every man for himself God for us all.
