In 2018, I noticed Uko in my DMs. He would drop the typical ‘heart’ and ‘love-struck’ emojis as reactions to my Instagram stories.
I was used to such reactions from IG friends so I didn’t think much of it.
It wasn’t until 2019 that he tried rather futilely to get me to go on a date with him.
I certainly didn’t trust the intentions of anyone from IG so I evaded him as I’d done to a few others.
Fast forward to February 2020, I reluctantly agreed to dinner with Uko.
He had been persistent and though I had often agreed to see him, I never did.
This time, I promised to show up if only to finally get him off my back. I remember making no effort to look pretty.
I truly just wanted to get the ‘date’ over with because it was a Sunday and I had to wake up early for work the next day.
I will say this very emphatically – Sometimes, our emotions are wrong. Sometimes they mislead us, and sometimes they just blatantly lie to us! Because that ended up being the best dinner of my life!
