Dear Future Husband,

How are you doing wherever you may be? Hope you are not doing anything that might jeopardize our future together? Please be safe.

So I told you in my previous letter that I suspected there was more to the road trip my friends were planning. Well, it turns out I was right. The trip was some sort of intervention from my friends. Emeka, ‘the maternal one’ and Joseph ‘the football jock’ had decided that instead of watching me wait for you to come to me, they might as well hurry things along by taking me out into the game.

We set off for Uyo. We got there and soon got settled in our hotel. We were met with the presence of a friend of Emeka’s. Nuel is his name. He was clad in a straight-cut denim trousers, white tank top, a papa’s cap on his head and black shoes. He had ruggedly handsome looks. And for a moment, I wondered if he was you.

Nuel lives in Uyo and had come to welcome us. After dinner, he took us to a karaoke bar off Port Harcourt Road. We got to our tables, and then Joseph and Emeka were excusing themselves to fetch our drinks. Nuel came to sit by my side and attempted to carry on some small talk with me. I wasn’t very responsive because I was a little bit nervous. I mean, he could be you. I could be sitting right next to my future hubby, and –

Then he began to say the things that made me certain he wasn’t you. With this heavy expression of lust on his face, he asked if I would spend the night with him. I was startled. That was fast. The man I envision being with for better or for worse has to get started with me through a proper courtship. There should be dates, candles and roses. Sex must be a lingering hint up until the time we get to it, not a forceful hammer within seconds of getting acquainted with each other.

I told Nuel his proposition wouldn’t be a good idea. “I’m not exactly in the place where I’m looking for who to jump into bed with,” I said, while remembering the bad sex I’d had when I wanted to revalidate myself.

“But I’m not just anyone,” Nuel said with the lazy grin and confidence of one who could get whatever he wanted. “I am here for your pleasure. Your friends asked me over for you. I understand you seek a real relationship. Well, I might just be the one. Just a night in your bed will leave you testifying.”

I could not believe what I was hearing. Did he just put a ‘one night of testimony’ as a prerequisite for a ‘real relationship’? Who did this horn-dog think he was fooling sef? I was not amused.

He however didn’t seem to catch on my displeasure. He was still talking, clearly on the roll. “I love to spoon. I bet you love that too. Have you ever experienced water-boarding? I’ll show you how it’s done. I’ll press a towel over your face, then urinate on it to simulate drowning effect. And afterwards, I’ll shove my dick into your mouth and cum in it. It’s a very exciting experience. You should try it.”

God forbid! Just FYI, Future Hubby, we are not doing that!

“You see,” my personal torturer continued, “I work out. Bottoms love me. And I can work your hole seven to nine. I’m not at all surprised Emeka called on me to help you out. I’m just that good…”

And this point, I’d had enough. I faced him full and cut in, saying, “Okay, Nuel, I’m sure you’re nice and everything. I’m sure you’re God’s gift to some Bottoms. But you’re just not for me. I don’t get it, how can you dress so well, look so good, and yet behave so poorly with someone you’re just meeting for the first time?”

I was really infuriated at this point and had to willfully hold myself back. I pray you, dear Future Husband, let this balderdash not be your pick up line for me. I admire intelligent people who have an abundance of wit. Please, be sure you can hold your own in a conversation and have an abundance of a sense of humour. Let your energy complement mine, whether we are gisting, having dinner or making love. And in those first few moments when a first impression matters, please be a perfect gentleman.

Joseph and Emeka caught up with me as I was about to hail a cab. I was so mad that I stomped out of Nuel’s presence and out of the bar. One look from me was all they needed to know how disastrous Nuel had been. We all returned to the hotel.

It was 2am when the intercom in my room rang. Emeka wanted to come over to talk to me. He must have intuited on how bad I was feeling over Bernard. I reluctantly agreed for him to come over. He must’ve taken a detour on his way to my room because when I opened the door, Joseph was right next to him. As soon as they had invaded my space, Emeka apologized for Nuel’s bad behavior. However, he said he wouldn’t apologize for trying to match me with someone.

“You want a perfect man, a potential husband material,” he said. “But there’s no such guy. You met Bernard and he looked like the dream guy, and you were ready to jump into the deep end with him. See how that worked out.”

“Let’s face it, Awele,” Joseph interjected, “the man you’re looking for is probably still in heaven where all the good men are.”

As they talked, as their words sank into my mind, I sat there, watching my dating life flash before my eyes, one horrible experience after another.

Does this mean I’m on a wild goose chase, wishing on something that’s not there? Is it true that you are not there, my Charming Prince? Am I forever doomed to want a man who only exists in my imagination?

Can you answer me please?

Feeling very disconsolate,

Your Bae

      Now now, don’t be so pessimistic. I’m guessing you’re a good man yourself. If you exist, then others must too.

        The first song I heard on my way to work this morning was Jay-Z’s forever young and a line struck me.

        “Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst”.

        So its always best to consider all the options. Besides I’ve never considered myself a good man either ?, so I don’t expect one to exist either. We just settle for different types of fucked up and bad, all a matter of what we can endure and overlook. God help you if you can’t endure or overlook, then be ready to accept loneliness as a life companion.

        Case in point: Nuel will be bae ultimate to some people.

    Nuel went south so fast with that “Urine-boarding” shii oh! Like totally! Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww! He should have had to sense to ask Awele if he is into such kinky stuffs first before blabbing away. Typical example of a wolf in sheep clothing. ? ? ? ? ? ?

    **In Evelyn Powell’s voice** Such Debauchery!!!!!

    And yes, they are still good men out there. They exist. You just have to make yourself good enough for them. And have the patience to wait too.

      I agree, You never know, somewhere out there is someone who wants exactly the kind of person I am, complete with all my flaws and failings I come with, and you know what else? He won’t even see them as flaws and failings rather as part of my unique charm, so why settle for an angel when you can have god?

    I think (You missed the part where) Emeka and Joseph did send Nuel to seduce You and give You the best night ever, hoping You guys will get pass the acquaintance stage and get a good thing going. No? Just my thought though.

      May be we might have if there were no kinky stuffs on the menu, may be we might if he had been a gentleman. He is into waterboarding, fine and good for him but am not …”I work out. Bottoms love me. And I can work your hole seven to nine. ” Excuse me but I didn’t realize I was heading to the gym.

        Sure I’ve met her. In fact I’ve met many like her,except they are all on social media claiming Miss flawless. My ideal Wifey is a stud. A full masculine woman who enjoys manly behaviors and have the attitude to match. As such she should be a gentlelady with proper etiquette .she should recognize the fact that I’m a stem and deserve to be treated like a proper lady ie flowers occasionally and good morning kisses. Sometimes it’s not just the savage sex that’s great but the short talks and lazy stare the morning after.
