How are you saved in your partner’s phone?

I have this curious friend with longer hands who went through his girlfriend’s phone. The reason he went through her phone is, he says, to find out how he was saved. To his surprise, his name wasn’t registered anywhere. He typed his name in the search space and there were no...

Teach your hearts how to forgive

April is a dark month marked with grief and wrought by the past. It’s a month for Kwibuka and our hearts are heavy. The world knows what brought this grief, but there’s need to mention the word everyone seems to be throwing around yet practiced by few – forgiveness. It’s so...

Is it too much baggage when she has a kid?

All was fine for Derick. He lived a normal life. A decent life. His life was not any different from a mid-aged lad negotiating through the urban jungles of life. Big dreams. Bigger ambitions. Life gave him apples that he munched silently. But all things took a sharp turn when he met a woman. Well,...

Dating in the digital era

I had an insightful conversation with a friend last week about dating and relationships in this digital era. We drew examples from various people and, to our surprise, the results fitted the puzzle. Look, dating has changed exponentially. At least, the process of dating has changed. Back in the day...

Whose gifts are these?

I received Valentine’s gifts yesterday. I mean, everyone was receiving a Valentine’s gift. From a garden of flowers to a vineyard. From a mere handshake to a WhatsApp status. At least in my office, most people received something. It was a day of love. A day of making merry. A day...

Valentine’s Day through the eyes of a player

It’s around the corner. The day for lovers. Valentine’s Day, February 14. A day when the entire world holds its breath because they’re being suffocated by the flood of love. My name is James. And I’m a player. This is the day I dread the most, because as a player, I have to...

An open letter to all men in 2019

Dear fellow men, First off, happy 2019. I hope you all survived last year’s harsh tides and docked at the shores of 2019. This is a rallying cry for us all to be better human beings on this God’s green earth. Last year, we were on everyone’s lips, in the corridors, in newspapers...

Cougar town: Dating an older woman

I saw this couple in a bar. It was late in the night, and the clock was slowly ticking towards sunrise. The man was young, you could tell from his sagging pants. He didn’t look a day over 24. The woman on the other hand was a cougar. An older woman. Her face lined with wisdom and old age...

What men wish women knew about them

There’s a lot of misconceptions between the two genders. Over the past hundreds of years, there’s been an unsettled war about the two genders. Maybe it all started when Adam and Eve couldn’t wait for supper and they sneaked into a garden and ate that apple, raw as it was. I...

He is pursuing an MBA (married but available)

He finished his Bachelor’s (yes, he was a bachelor for a long time). He did what many bachelors do; he did not leave any stone unturned. Then he graduated and outgrew bachelorhood. He got married. People get married for different reasons. And for him, he got married because, well, his...

They are not into you

Have you ever dated someone who is unaware of you? Like you are dating them only in your head? You’re living in denial. To them, you’re just there — a brother, a friend, or worse, someone they know. They just aren’t into you, but in your head, you’re into them —...
