“She got a new shoulder to cry on and I became the secondary partner. E remain small make I enter ICU”
– David, 24
Well, she said she wanted a change of the way we do things, fewer intimate acts and all that. Intimacy acts we use do bedrock for relationship for years con give me the “change is constant” card.
Then overtime she started seeing our less communication as me being “extra” anytime I brought it up.
Later found out, that she got a new shoulder to cry on and a buddy to always discuss with. I became the secondary partner
Fear women o! E remain small make I enter Intensive care unit.

“Nah me fuck up, nah me assume say she love me, not knowing she was searching for shelter”
– Samtin, 22
It happened that hanty has hostel issues, so she moved out and distributed her loads left and right and came to sleep at my place. She’s always around 24/7.
Thought it was love not knowing she was just using me, she !stayed at my place for a full semester. Until the day she was really sick and I told her to go to a health centre, she just collapsed at Mayfair! Thank God for a good Samaritan that rushed her to the health centre. I later joined her there, that was when her so-called friends that I knew told me she haven’t been coming to classes for a while that how did I find her as no one knows her whereabouts, she moved out when they had issues, her friends even told me they declared her missing. Nah me fuck up, nah me assume say she love me, she just dey find shelter. The case worse reach say them call me for their Dean office. Strong guy cry ooo.
“When the I always want to hear your cute voice dropped to excuses, I already knew this one was gone”
– Fibi, 21
I knew it was already in the canal when he would always give excuses of having issues at home and not having time but he would still post on his WhatsApp status every minute and play football. Our conversations from 100 dropped to a quick 0.
Normally he would ask about what I was doing, where I was, call and talk to me like I was his lifeline. Then sudden low energy, he stopped picking up my calls and let’s say I call now, 5 minutes later he’s busy on another call with someone else. When the ” I always want to hear your cute voice” dropped to those excuses, I already knew this one was gone.
When I tried confronting him about the rootless excuses, he was just like he didn’t know how to tell me there was no interest again.
“When everything I did never pleased her, I realized the canal was near”
– Ola, 23
Our love language was gifting each other and going out. She used to call me to talk about how her friends complimented the gifts I get and how they looked nice on her.
When it got to a point that everything I did never pleased her, I got her gift, took her out and she was so unresponsive and never appreciated the attention I was giving, I realized the canal was near.
“I knew I agreed to a private relationship, but calling me a friend in front of his friends?”
– Angel, 20
We agreed to keep our dating lives off social media because according to him, it’s what people see that they spoil. I agreed because I had seen so many relationships fail and I wanted ours to last till marriage.
Until I realized he never publicly recognized me as his partner and I saw this when he started introducing me as a friend. I knew I agreed to a private relationship, but calling me a friend in front of his friends? That’s being kept a secret.
I threw the relationship in the canal myself.
“Don’t date your department babe so the heartbreak can be contained”
– Lade, 24
Don’t date your department babe so the heartbreak can be contained. I heard my babe was cheating with another guy in the same department and yes, I trusted her with all my heart not to break. So I tried to confirm, cos, there’s an epitome of truth in every rumour. I tried making my investigations and didn’t make it obvious. When I confirmed the truth and confronted her, she said she didn’t know how to tell me after her first mistake.
“On my birthday we were supposed to go on a date as usual and he told me he couldn’t make it. This boy I thought you were grateful my mother gave birth to me for you.”
– Victoria, 20
We visited each other often as I go to his house often and he came to mine too. All of a sudden he started giving excuses anytime I wanted to visit and won’t come over too. On my birthday we were supposed to go on a date as usual and he told me he couldn’t make it. This boy I thought you were grateful my mother gave birth to me for you. It wasn’t a case of us being far from each other and yes, he just couldn’t make it.
So many other plans he ditched too until he finally spoke up.
“I didn’t ignore the warning signs because when we started we chatted and called each other every day then we started talking once in a week or 2, and then I got my realisation that the canal was near”
– Bola, 19
As a normal person who isn’t too deep in love, I knew my relationship was heading to breakfast as it wasn’t progressive. I was able to read the signs, but I could react quickly when I was smelling the breakfast so it wasn’t served and I didn’t dish it. I didn’t ignore the warning signs because when we started we chatted and called each other every day then we started talking once in a week or 2, and then I got my realisation that the canal was near.
Well, I think I’ve gotten to the point where I know that one side shouldn’t necessarily be held responsible for the failed relationship. So we ended it on a mutual note.
Just know that when your partner is not giving back the initial energy for no solid reason, hmmm hmmm hmm…canal (in Shank’s voice). Do you have your story too? Share with us. If you were mentioned in any of these, tell us your side of the story.
