SeRIOUslY?

05 May

The post you are about to read is much more than a post. It is a real occurence.Names have been changed for security and privacy reasons yet the emotions expressed here are as real as they come. Written from a shared experience and “acted” out by the writers, I present to you scene 1: “HerStory”

Written by @SlimSiren

The sun was burning hot.
People climbed up and down, looking at the crazy black girl sitting on the sunny side of stairs. “Wouldn’t you step into the shade, madam?” “Madam, would you like some sunscreen?” One even gave me a bottle of cold water. These oyingbo people sef. When did they stop minding their business?
Couldn’t they see? I needed it. I needed its warmth to seep through my skin, to pervade my cold, cold, being. I needed to roast, I needed my emotions to stew and run like boiling lava down my system. Would they flow like tears from my eyes? Perhaps it would help me wash my insecurities away.

Ha.

Burn me, dammit!

All it did was prickle my skin like sharp, tiny pins. It didn’t matter. I welcomed the pain too.

Get rid of your insecurities. Get rid of your insecurities. Get rid of your…shut up! Fuck you!!

My insecurities are YOU, bastard!

Did I have insecurities before you came into my life? Did you see insecurities tattooed on my forehead when you perused my twitter avatar?
Mr Dizzle. Answer me. Did you smell insecurities when you mentioned me in that tweet, that tweet that made my heart dance and hair curl? “Perhaps, I should let one my followers know already. Miss @Ifeomatics, you are one hell of a dime and some!”
And those DMs. The proud feeling I got every time one of your thirsty followers questioned your ensuing absence from their timelines, because you were filling my own time with your colorful, panty-dropping lines. The half-a-dozen xoxo’s you sent every time I slept, for each hour you missed me.

Lol. I’m smiling. Damn you, Seye.

How I wish I could roll back to the time you asked for my blackberry pin, and erase that reply that held it. That pin punctured everything beautiful, everything sacred. You became too available, easily readable. I loved that I could talk to you 24/7, until I realized that you didn’t have 24 hours a day to share with me. I didn’t worry too much, was too happy you were there at all. Who wouldn’t want The Dizzle on their BBM list?
It didn’t take too long for me to notice eventually. I wish I never figured it out, I swear. All those BRB’s and never coming back. The different beauties on your display picture every other day. Why wouldn’t I get worried? They were each more beautiful than I was. I was jealous of every one of them, I wanted to rub charcoal on their wide toothed smiles and scream, get your filthy hands off my man!! I had to cinch the deal. When you mentioned us meeting and I jumped at it saying I was free that exact same period, you thought it was coincidence. Hmm. Coincidence indeed.

I wipe the moisture coursing down my face. What, My lava? Oh no. No, please don’t evaporate yet. I’m not out of steam. Please, be sweat.
My Dizzle. The Dizzle. What did I do to you? Where did I go wrong? We had fun at the movies, didn’t we? You laughed so much, tears ran from your eyes and salted the popcorn. I ate them, savoring the taste of you. You taste so beautiful, did you know? When we made love that night, I ran my tongue around your groin, drinking in every bit of you, the sweat, your sperm, my tears…
Did they all do that? Did they hold you while you slept, shivering and babbling incoherent residues from your haunting nightmares? I loved you, Dizzle. Yes. I. Loved. You. Why did you leave? Where did you go? All those read BBM pings and no replies, all those unanswered mentions. More beautiful display pictures. Less xoxo’s.

Until they disappeared all together.
It’s starting to get cold. I look at my wrist watch; its evening already. The cold bottle of water that guy with the mole gave me is still sitting next to me, untouched. I open it and take a swig, get up and dust my behind. Its late, but I’m not in a hurry to go home to Ngozi’s mocking eyes again. Yes, I dated a guy I met online. Yes, I’m in love with a guy I met on twitter barely three weeks ago. Yes, I’m stupid.
Stupidly in love.

I gather my back pack and books together, ready to go home. I don’t bother to check my phone, I know there are no missed calls. He blocked me from every social network- Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Blackberry Messenger…

Its not that easy though, Seye. I can’t let him go like that. I would write him a letter.

…So people, this is scene 1, I’m sure some can relate to this. Remember though, this was borne out of the pain one of ‘us’ felt…you may have advice for her or want to share your own experiences as I know she’s reading this.pls drop it in the comments box and also your opinions on @SlimSiren’s character portrayal… Scene 2 should be up tomorrow…

    You are not alone my dear, I too fell in love wit a guy I met on twitter, frm d mentions to DMs to bbm to fone calls… *sigh* we hung out a few times and I’m lucky we never slept with each other… I’m learning to let go… But if truth be told, I dnt want to… I want to have all to myself, and not see him tweet lovely tweets at the biatch or use their pics as his dp, yes I’m still following him and we chat once in a wyl… Maybe that’s me still hoping!!! *sigh*

    May 5, 2011 at 6:49 am

    I can so relate to this, everything happened except the sex part, I think that’s where I come in lucky, tho I was willing to gIve it up to him, I wanted him to be my first!!! I saw all the signs, the sexy and lovely tweets at other biatchs, I know your handles, dnt let me site u guyz at any twitter party oooo!!!him changing his dp to d pic of all those gurls, and me forcing myself not to ask questions… I saw the signs and thank God for frnds who set me on the part of moving on… I still see the tweets, we chat once in a wyl, mayb dats me still hoping…but I want to let go of all the feelings I ve for you wit u in sight, I want to prove to myself that I’m capable of it just the same way I fell…

    Slimsiren, I dnt ve words… Nice work!!!

    May 5, 2011 at 6:54 am

    OMG!

    Firstly, the character portrayal by the writer was brilliant. I can really feel all the emotions and all those senti-senti things.

    For the actual person who went through this, I’m going to risk sounding insensitive. She should know better than to expect anything serious from someone she met online. Yes, I get how the sweet IMs and DMs can get to you, but seriously! It’s the internet. Twitter oh! With all those thirsty human beings!! Haba! And the guy was putting up pics of diff girls? All the signs were there dear.

    I truly empathise, and it’s sad that it happened this way, but it’s like I said – really should’ve known better.

    Again, kudos to the writer.

     
    • Kelvin

      May 5, 2011 at 8:06 am

      tnx so much Cece…but my underlying question is..this can happen anywhere right? Is it synonymous to Twitter alone? Is it the location or the person involved?

       
      • cecenostockings

        May 5, 2011 at 8:49 am

        Well, I think it’s the internet. It hardly ever happens outside there. All these online predators. I always tell my friends not to get too caught up because it’s all fun and games for some people.

      May 5, 2011 at 7:56 am

      Are you calling me a predator, lauryn? Ah well..scene 2 shall reveal..thanx hun

    May 5, 2011 at 7:05 am

    This has to be fiction. The writing is raw, but the subject matter is laughable at best. I can’t sympathize with the main character in this story. I guess there are people who actually go through these things, but I think it takes a certain lack of self-esteem and hideous desperation to “fall in love” with an “online twitter profile” in three weeks. My 2 cents.

    P.s, don’t slit your wrists. 😉

      May 5, 2011 at 7:53 am

      Fiction? Nah..its as real as the fact that u posted this comment..
      Ah well, I really do see your point. The quest to see who’s behind the ‘handle’ yeah? Its just sad when peeps don’t know where d lines shd be drawn.
      Tnx and aunty if ure reading this, “Don’t slit ur wrists, carrots are better!”

    Hmmm….u fall in love wiv a guy on tweera?…well,it has its advantages and disadvantages…the only thing i have to say to her is, she should have been wise enough to know that de guy in question just wanted to have fun and not be stupid enough to fall for him….i mean the signs were all dre and she saw it..diff gurls as DP on BBM? And she persevered?….*rme*…niwas,it can happen to anybody sha….so,pull urself 2geda…shit happens,buh dsnt stop u 4rm living

     
  18. Griffin

    May 5, 2011 at 7:19 am

    Wow! I’m more than impressed. Great Story build and brilliant exposition on the feelings of the character. I’d love to see what scene 2 brings. But I dare say, why fall in love on twitter…its all fun and games not where the heart finds a soul mate.

     
    • Kelvin

      May 5, 2011 at 7:46 am

      Oh well, bruv…I do know of a twitter altar based couple. I think the key word here should be ‘maturity’…the location of a soul mate could be anywhere. In this occasion though, it definitely isn’t on Twitter
      Cheers mate..tnx 4 stopping by

    Falling for a guy anywhere has its downsides and yes twitter is all fun talk and stf but do u really pick a place to fall for someone..like I mean if u meet him at a bar,fall for him and if u meet him on twitter don’t..men ur feelings dnt pick a place dey just pick a person,so I dare say why not twitter..I knw peeps who met on a social network and they still high on d love..she just picked the wrong dude.

    Lovely! Brilliantly written!!

    But seriously? “Falling in love” in 3 weeks!? Who does that? Worst still online love…*sigh* I dare say this isn’t love. Infatuation perhaps, lust most probably…but love? Out of the question! But the deed has been done. She alone has the power to get herself out of what she put herself into. Nevertheless this “Dizzle” isn’t worth all the drama. Move on, Mr Sizzle might just be around the corner 😉 …my 2kobo

    And to think that

    As pathetic as this post may seem the sad fact is that its real. it happens on a regular basis. If u haven’t experienced something like this to at least some minute degree then u obviously have horrible avatars/FB profile pix/BB DPs…lol

    SERIOUSLY, Great write bruv! I think you can fall in love anywhere, all depends on the maturity of the characters involved. Having said that, i must say social network sites are like e-whorehouses. Face it boys and girls alike, we all crave shagging that fine boy or busty gal on our TLs. Like now, i know uncle Kelvin right here must be gerrrrrrrrrrrrin it toh bad! If not u r a weiist brah…lol. I’m still looking for my first twitter experience though, she might be the ONE. Great job @slimsiren and sorry for the gal involved. She’ll find another who’ll love her for real.

    Secondly, an off topic question; can Okafor’s law still work for Mr. Dizzle with this babe?

    May 5, 2011 at 9:03 am

    Hmmmm! *hits palms together* ehn eh!
    Most of you are calling her stupid for finding love on twittter,abeg wake up o jare! You that fell in love with that your family friend you’ve known almost all your life who left you a month later for ur friend,are you any better?

    IMO,luv,like heartbreak can happen anywhere,has nothing to do with the circumstance(s) surrounding your meeting.

    @slimsiren,what I would do were I in your shoes is delete everything that reminds me of him-pictures,num,etc. Surround urself at all times with bubbly friends, have a blast and party like a rockstar. It’l be hard but u’l eventually forget.

    very good article..sad to say she was quite unfortunate i mean most girls would fall prey to this same scenario…nice guy giving you all the attention u want…but once in a while yall should take a pause and ask youselfs why me?…then you would realise its just a matter of time before he disapears…and if he doesnt den u cn gradualy get emotionally attached.. the lesson is never rush,,let time tell.

    Firstly, every single being is prone to falling sexually in lust with someone depending on how their hormones react at the sight of that person. I have gotten down with responsible girls in serious relationships all because the adrenaline rush they felt towards me was uncontrollable. So it has little to do with the place, environment or period of the occurrence but a lot to do with the two people in question.
    My advice for her is to go out a lot or always be in the midst of extroverts and she should never ever be alone with the guy again cuz it will always lead to a REPEAT session!

    Waow! Nicely written. Its hard keeping a relationship with someone u met in real life talkless of the internet…its harder!! Only about 10% of internet love works out. Too many factors are involved..and most guys on twitter are not serious minded in terms of relationships,they only see the girls as toys. I pity her though,it could happen to anybody but she will definately get over him. I believe love could be found everwhr but u have to be doubly sure,which is really hard to do.Ladies:keep that firewall on!!!

For a moment, I thought I was reading a Novel. @SlimSiren…..Awesome Piece! #Pause====>>To the said ”person”, I can’t say i feel a caustic shame for your act for delegating your HEART to a nincompoop like Mr Dizzle. You fell in Love and you can’t be fault for that. But, if you had weighed his level of MATURITY enough, you would have known he’s nothing else but a carnivorous animal in form of human looking for who to devour. #Play====>>The Car had tangled. The bananas, given to the monkeys. Stop pining/crying for him, he’s not worth it. *Adjust your halo, Serve yourself some sundae, Smile :), play some music and dance your HEART away*. No worries, you’d be Just fine! My 1cent. #CatWalksAway

    Err…I just wanted 2 read without commenting but now I find myself typing away, powerless and a lil shaky.
    Yeah I can relate. All those saying d girl was dumb 2 have fallen 4 a tweep in 3wks r u kidding me? U do realise u open up better thru written convos and imagine a guy who’s all understanding, caring and shit. Always wanting 2 listen 2 u,making u feel lyk ‘yeah, this guy gets me, no one else sees me d way he does’.u share amazingly common interests, his attention’s solely on u,he makes u feel like d fucking queen of d world and THAT is what we all want…we all crave attention, 2 be THAT important,how cldnt she have fallen?

    Sadly, in life, shit happens,don’t fight it,release it, wash it away, pick urself up and move on…u don’t want it smelling after u…it gets better

    Eagerly awaiting scene 2…very eager

    Wow!!!!!a very good read I must say…but is this really a true story,cos I must admit I did feel her pain,a lot of ‘us’ have fallen into this illusion and actually thought we found the ‘one’..we might not have gone far into the ‘relationship’ but we met someone online,connected with the person…suddenly they vanish!leaving the other person confused and lost… I hope she can get past her loss whether it was real or fake…

    of course what do i know?
    anyways my dear, thats life for u. Shit happens. Life sucks. when u cant do nothing bout it, u move on. simple. LET HIM GO. he aint worth it

    I agree with JADE, anyone can fall for it. Don’t think ur own brain is more mature than everyone else. 3 weeks, 3 months, 3 years.. It doesn’t matter.
    Just because you hold out longer than her doesn’t make you better.
    When we fall in love, we rarely see the bad signs, we just fall. Its when we are trying to get up that we realise all the signs we missed. I imagine her seeing all those pictures on his bbm and being in denial, it was probably just 2 or 3 different girls but now she’s hurt and she’s punishing herself, imagining it was 20.
    I’ve crushed on a few people on twitter, luckily I’m not single so I make sure it doesn’t go any further.
    But SERIOUSLY! If I was single? I’ll be writing a book by now “SEX IN THE TWICITY” LOL

    wow! i cant say i fully relate but to an extent i relate. I feel so bad for the girl cos i know how painful it is to see that one special guy turn his back on you and focus on other chicks. Especially when u were genuinely convinced he had feelings for you.
    At the same time, i feel like she shoulda been more subtle bout her feelings for him. No guy wants a girl that appears desperate. She met her online dude and had sex with him that same day?? and she had jst known him online for what, three weeks??? he musta sensed she really digged him. And no guy likes a girl that isnt a challenge.
    Nice story, and @slimsiren is a beast at character potrayal!!..i’m impressed 🙂

    I love your piece SlimSiren. Girls are very deep in fantasy and stuff. Its even possible to agree to marry someone u met over the internet without even meeting him! And really, guys just run out of emotional steam once the physical part of the relationship is over with. Its a hard lesson, but yeah, keep sex out of it till there is a firm commitment. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I think guys have it too easy these days and so they act mean. The blocking stuff was especially painful. Hugs dear, I hope you’ve recovered.

    Kudos to @slimsiren for perfectly portraying the character.

    While I empathise with the victim (if am allowed to use the word)….I feel she should have seen it coming, the signs were there for her to see but I guess her feelings made her blind to these things. Advice: Take heart and move on.

    dear slimsiren what a brave lady you are chronicling your story of ill fated love to you and setting p to mr dizzle for the world of us all to hear.
    i stronlgy believe you didnt do this for revenge purposes.
    in the depths of pain and despair this may just have been ur of catharsis.
    like everyone has said the signs were there.
    Right now u are blaming mr dizzle but remember u played a role here.
    U can kill him for being a silly fool throwing his sperm everywhere and thinking theres a prize for having multiple flings.
    be consoled tht he will soon get penile warts via hpv or something more sinister.
    his sins will definitely find him out when he wakes up to realise he
    has used himself while he thought he was using u or anyone else.
    When he wakes up empty and his soul shared into a hundred pieces.
    or u think he doesnt suffer from some form of self esteem issues to be such a weiistz.
    as for u dear slim,u deserve better and start by telling urself that.never get carried away.
    Never….love means he has proven himself
    to be worthy of u..anything short of that is genital infatuation.
    So kindly see urself as far above his immature 5yr old soul and get on with ur life.
    no be today guys start to decieve themselves say them clever.
