I Will Really Show You!!

by Vera Ezimora

If there is anything I have learnt from being in a relationship, it is the fact that a lot of times, once one partner realizes the other loves him/her, he/she begins to act out. What is it with them? I have taken the time to write a letter of anger to my partner who thinks life will not go on without him in my life.

My Dear,

It has been almost a year since we started this sick, twisted, strange and perverted saga that we stupidly call a relationship, and I am yet to see the benefits. Ok, maybe there has been some benefits (in the beginning and a little now), but the fact that we have both invested reasonable amounts of our time into this will not stop me from putting a screeching halt to it. I did it before and I will proudly and happily do it again without a second thought. This is exactly what happened between me and my ex; as soon as he realized I was in love with him and dependent on him, he decided to start malfunctioning. Yes, I said it… malfunctioning.

You always say how much you love me and how much you want to spend the rest of your life with me, but instead, all you do is break my heart every chance you get. Either that, or you embarrass me in private or in public. I have tried so hard to make this work just because I love you. I take your insults and inadequacies simply because I love you and also because I foolishly think you will change. Every time you mess up, you apologize, I take you back and you do it again. In case you have not noticed, you’re not the only man out there, so if you are not ready to commit to me in the manner that I deserve, then I advice you find love some place else.

Tell me, what is it you want that I have not given you? What is it that I have not done for you? You are with me practically 24/7, so you cannot possibly say I abandon you. You are the first person I see when I wake up, and the last person I see before I go to bed. I cater to you like all men wish their women would do, and I have never for one day mistreated you. I respond to your every need no matter when, where, and how. I find myself doing things that I never thought I would do, yet you have the effrontery to treat me like I’m nothing. Why? Did you find someone else? Are you in love with someone else? It is only a matter of time before she realizes what a pain you are and will continue to be. You’re a liability and I am sick and tired of your instability. You either change or we are over… for real this time. I was brought on this earth for many reasons; you are not my sole purpose and mission on earth. God put me on earth to be many things to many people; I am my parents’ daughter, I am my friends’ friend, I will be somebody’s wife, I will be the mother of some future children, I will be the author of the book someone will be reading in the future, I am a student at my school, I am a T-Mobile customer, and I am even a Yahoo! and MSN account holder, so you see, you’re really not even my priority.

So my dear Nokia 3660, if you think you can keep tripping off when you feel like it or not ringing when you don’t feel like it, then you have another thing coming for you. For your information, you are not the only phone out there; yes, T-Mobile has other Nokia phones… new flip ones for that matter. Just wait till December when I’m due for an upgrade… I will really show you!

puzzled at how amazing your are at writing, your choice & use of word, i cannot help but notice

that you writing notice that your articles bother around relationships, more especially your

opposite gender "Man".

I stumble into one of your articles "E get as e be…", after reading the 1st paragragh i

was tempted to go all the way, even though it was a very longer write-up, but i was

not disappointed. By the time i was done reading, i was now tempted to

read more of your articles.

I having gone through all of them yet, but i intend to. I just thot i make some

observations. I hope you dont mind, am not a writer but i think you need to put more of

your energy into more positive writing, you seem to write more about relationship you have

had and what you expect in your man, which is not bad, but could be better.

I think you are a gift writer and should do better with talent. You articles are

outward express of your inner feelings, true. But it does not have to be biased from

vera angle only, be more objective, give a balance to both sides. Say you write about the

first Person on earth "Man" and his role in relationships and how in-pecfect he is, what

makes the second Person on earth "Woman" pecfect. They both have flaws, so lets

talk about both weakness not just being one-sided, cause non of them is pecfect.

I wish you all the best vera, i do like your articles, honeslty, i think they are

great. I hope to read more of them in future.

Your need goes beyond an upgrage you need a product that is custom built for you one that is cognisant of your specifications.

An upgrage will certainly come with it own inadequacies if the new inadequacies are ones you will have none of then you may need to continue to upgrade. Wait; before long you will start making comparisons between your former and your present. "I beg sister vera no change man as you dey change wrapper o" I don talk my own.

A fervent prayer.. ..won't be neccessry though if and only if THAT nokia remains a nokia!

Distress however describes a nokia come December if and only if THAT nokia happens to take the form of one of us all-male-stars.

Excellent piece. Outstanding thought path.

Highly creative. I really thought u were talking about some loser boyfriend or are you but then decided to change. Emotions like that seemingly could only come from personal experiences. Anyway you get a C for creativity.LOL. Nah i think that deserved an B.

What an excellent write up…but my sister u need to free men. Women will be better served if they start doing something else in their spare time instead of talking about us…talk about sports politics business or even religion..haba! Men got to do what we gat to do.
