What’s in a name?

I met a guy the other day- my height, really dark, cute. I was looking very ‘flashdance’ in my off-the-shoulder shirt and peeptoe wedges.

Him: Hey…

Me: hi

Him: You’re very pretty

Me: Umm… thanks

Him: Where are you from?

Me: Nigeria

Him: Nigeria… I like that

Me: How about u?

Him: Me come from Jamaica still

I laughed at the immediate switch in accents

Me: Righttttttt

Him: Whats you’re name?

Me: Overwhelmed… u?

Him: Tangerine.

Me: huh?

Him: Tangerine

Me: Lol… so that’s whats written on your birth certificate is it?

Him: Lol… it is my name… but of course I’ve got other ones as well

Me: Such as?

Him: Kimor

Me: say word

Him: word... my first name is Kimor

Me: Oh

Him: Oh? I take it there’s a story…

Me: lol... not really.. the ex is named Kimor

Him: Lol… you see why I initially told you tangerine?

Me: Lmao… you're silly

Agggggggggggh. Tangerine? As in the fruit? LOL

Soul said...

hmm...
Nothing like fresh meat to erase the stale blandness of a previous meal.

The ex is in the past, (and fromt he way he broke up with you, that's the way he wanted it to be).

I don't think he would hesitate to date anyone with your name, unless he hasn't gotten over you and that would be some sad, pathetic shit right there.

Aburo, do you jare. Just because one Kimor didn't recognise the goodness and sweetness, doesn't mean another Kimor won't.
Keep dating, keep going out there and seeing all that life has to offer..
And next time, please be picky you deserve soo much better(smile)

Freaky Deaky said...

I've dated a couple of women that had the same first name. It gave me a new appreciation for women whose names begin with the letter E. Talk about some freaks. LOL

jamaican guys are okay with their women. Tangerine;the name doesn't sound all that cute and sexy as he might have been.
