Love Triangle

The Jehovah Witness called me last night... I was joking, giving him grief about something he'd done. He went silent.. and then...

"Overwhelmed... I have to talk to you about something"

'What unreasonable thing do you have to tell me this time... I still haven't forgiven you for what you...'

"I'm in love with you"

'huhn?'

"I want a real relationship with you"

'HUHN?!?!?!?!' ummm... as I was saying...

"Overwhelmed I love you... want you to be my girlfriend... quit playing"

'Ummm... ummmmmmmmmm'

"What you say?"

'I don't know'

"K... I'll call you back"

'No... don't go... just give me a second here'

"Gotta go... I'll call you later"
CLICK

It's taken 5 years to hear him say this... but I'm so confused.

There was a time I would've cried for joy... a time when I would've shouted it from the rooftops
When I was 17... 18... maybe even 19

But I'm 22... I no longer wear silver cross pendants and talk to guys in Jordan jumpsuits and cornrows or NBA Jerseys and think Bryan Butler is the hottest thing since sliced bread.
*So why didn't I say no to the Jehovah Witness?!?!*

I'm so comfortable with My Jehovah Witness... he's watched me grow... I puppy loved him as a teenager... and still like him as a semi-adult. I love having him around... He's so caring and sweet, goes out of his way for me... accepts me just the way I am... has seen me at my WORST... comforted me through countless ordeals... always has a kind word to say...

Marley I am in like with... such a beautiful man... so caring... laughs at himself... and me. He excites me... we have silence... and words... and smiles. He has seen me angry and happy and a few things inbetween and thinks I'm a queen... I feel like we still have so much to learn about each other... and it's going...

Now this...
Why? After 5 years?
... why can't I decide?...

The Old? The New?

Marley's coming to see me in a few days...

... and My Jehovah Witness just texted to say he's on his way NOW...

...I'm torn...

Zena said...

Is it really a love triangle, I know how you feel and I don't think anyone can tell you what to do hear, things change, time passes, to him, JW time has passed, in with the new and out with the old,
people say you don't go back to the old when there's something good, solid and new in your present

Hope ur able to work it out

I think you should keep ur options open for now, and see how things go.

Tears said...

1stpet2v9 said...

LMAOOOO!! haaa OVERWHELMED!
U r overwhelmed with lurve... lol

goodluck with dis one

Ms Sula said...

Seems to be the vibe of the moment...

The old is so... comforting, ain't it?
Yet the new is so exciting...
Both sensations are valid, but both can become hinderances very quickly...

In those moments, I usually summon the power of daydreaming... I let myself feel what it will be like to be with each one of them...10 years down the road. Intuition is a powerful thing (our sixth sense I believe)... Let it guide you.

Good Luck... I really know how friggin' hard this situation is...

(I often forget how young you really are, smart Lady! :))

Jaycee said...

So how did everything turn out? Hope u're doing good dearie.

nosa101 said...

Don't pick a 20% guy over an 80% guy...just some Katt Williams wisdom

Chi-Chi said...

Arewa said...

Wow.. talk about double whammy...
I agree with Sting...keep ur options open and be frank with Jehovah.W. Just ask hinm to give you some time. U need to do some serious soul searching before begining ur elinimation process....all the best x x

Afrobabe said...

Hmmmmm...babes, send one of them over cos ur girlfriend is suddenly lonely...

Eve said...

go with the flow

Nwanyi Ocha said...

i'm really stumped with this one overwhelmed!

dunno - what does ur gut tell you?

Moody Crab said...

Oh la la!! I love triangles esp when I'm not involved!
Ha...I can see you are getting them hot and bothered, ay?

The real Moody Crab is saying, forget JW. He had a chance and let it slip away. Focus on Marley.

But my alter ego Cindy said I should tell you this: Put JW on the yellow seat and when Marley eventually fucks up (no offence but men ALWAYS do. They don't know a good thing even when it bitch slaps them). So when Marley fucks up, you will have JW to fall back on.

ChiefO said...

ovawhemed, how have you been. its been a long minute. i know u go do vex. i see a lot of fishes have swam out of the ocean and i also see dat some have just refused to swim altogether. wait sef b4 i read ur blog post. is this the same jehovah witness from back in the day abi na body double. if na him, no be say him dey try recycle himself so or is it just me. cos all i see is "ofawemed i lo' u",

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

I havent really made any concrete decision... something about going with the flow and things working themselves out... I adore them both... but at the same time... it's not really about them... more about me... so with time I'm sure I'll discover what is best for me... and it might even be neither of them(lol)... speaking of which... 2 new jamaican toasters on the horizon... ones sexy as hell... the others funny as hell. I'm spoilt for choice... but all jokes aside... Marley might be a little ahead in the race... but that's neither here nor there... anything can change in an 'overwhelmed' minute.

bumight said...

there is a simple fix!
mini mini mani mo
father has a donkey
donkey died, father died
mini mini mani mo
my father said i should pick this one!

The poets voice ~~~ said...

i know how u feel, bt is this really a love triangle..?
what you have in the present shouldnt be dumped for the past...bt in the end it all comes down to ur decision.

hope u can work it out.

OluwaDee said...

Guess things change with time.
Think deep n make ur decision 4 u.

Nollege Wizdumb said...

I was hoping this was just a very good work of art but if it ain't...I'm sorry that you're in the situation. Put it in God's hands...he'll se you through.

Vox said...

only you can decide..if sure must be a hard choice.Wat can i say....follow your heart gal

hey babe speaking from experience i would advise you to go with JW. I did exactly what moody crab said. I gave my JW yellow sign and gave my marley the go ahead. Two years passed and Marley messed up big time. My JW is still there and now we talk everyday. I would advise you to keep building what you and JW have been working on for the past 5 years and dont waste it on someone who would probably mess u up at the end of the day.
