Good day readers; It is I, Paul Kay (winks) with a nice post to enjoy the Sunday evening. This is an interview session on the blog; and it borders on love through the eyes of THE SINGLE, THE ONE IN LOVE & THE BROKEN HEARTED. In order to erase any form of bias; we do have personalities from both genders that will be interviewed. I am sure I am not the only one that wants to get it over with the introductions; but patience my dear, patience.
A BRIEF BIO OF THE INTERVIEWEES
THE SINGLE LADY: So for the first single person; we do have a lady by the name, Eseosa! Tell us about you Eseosa.
HER RESPONSE: I am Eseosa Naomi Omoruyi.
Single to stupor, although currently uninterested in dating.
I believe all of us are scum, only, some more than others.
THE LADY IN LOVE: For our lady caught in the bliss of love. We have a Stephanie. Ms Steph, if I am right; could you yap a bit about yourself?
HER RESPONSE: I am Stephanie Frank but don’t call me Steph, it’s too common. You can call me Phanii (with an accent) or by my pseudonym Phaneeyah. I am an ambivert, a lover of life, a poetess, a lover of the good things of life. I love to smell good. I am fashion enthusiast who can’t exactly afford it yet😂. I’m a go with the flow kinda person and I absolutely hate routine, my class attendance is always shit. I tend to switch up often and it gets people confused and a lot of people are irritated by it, I swear I’m trying my best to work on it.
THE HEARTBROKEN LADY: Madam, you know I appreciate your presence here for I know its not really easy for one to spill these beans the way they are. Tell me a bit about you.
HER RESPONSE: My name is Ejimofor Hannah Chiamaka also known as Adora, is a writer, a poet, a reader and an environmentalist. You can call me Adora!
Now, for the guys……………….
THE SINGLE GUY: As much as guys love to show that they’re not interested in love, they really are. Our first guy, who is also the single guy, Caleb; wants to talk about himself.
HIS RESPONSE: I’m Caleb Richard a.k.a Preacherman Khayleb. I’m a Poet, Spoken Word Artiste, Chef and an Ideator.
THE GUY IN LOVE: For the guy in love; we have an artiste. One currently caught in the bliss of love. Let’s hear you yap about yourself.
HIS RESPONSE: I’m Isaac; from Okrika, Rivers State of Nigeria. A graduate of animal and environmental biology. I’m also a pencil artiste, I’m naturally a straight forward person. 🤨
THE BROKENHEARTED GUY: This was one of the most difficult interviewee to get; and when I finally did, he pleaded anonymity. So, for the sake of this session; he’d be referred to as Mr. X!
Thank you all for the introductions! Now for the interview; It would be on the same order as the introduction. I will commence from the single lady down to Mr X.
LOVE: For me, I’d say love is finding that one person whose mere presence brings you ultimate happiness.
THE MUSINGS OF THE SINGLE LADY
I: Good evening, Eseosa…..deducing from your profile as the single female in the house; I think I can call you a Ms. What’s your take on love?
ESEOSA: Love exists. Love doesn’t hurt, love isn’t stupid either.
I: Eseosa, I must admit you’re cracking me up…..especially judging from the response of those in love who believe that love makes one stupid. Are you saying that ‘Love isn’t really blind?’
ESEOSA: When I said, “love isn’t stupid”, I meant, ‘love wouldn’t make you do what you shouldn’t, love would protect you’, you’d know when you’re going overboard and ‘being blind’ as it were. I don’t believe it’s love when you’re fawning and slaving stupidly over one kind somebody. There’s love, there’s stupidity.
I: so tell me, Eseosa. For someone who’s single you seem to know about love; have you ever been in love?
ESEOSA: Yes, I have. I think.
I: you just said “you think”. what happened?
ESEOSA: My perspective changed, sort of. Extreme rationality makes me question my feelings these days.
I: Wow! You sound like you intend being single for a really long while (just thinking) do you?
ESEOSA: It’s what I like to think😂.
I: (laughs) I am sure a lot of people might want to have same mindset as you, cos of heart aches. Eseosa, Do you think love is for everyone?
ESEOSA: If you’re ready, then it’d work. If not, not so much.
I: Wow! Are you saying anyone can get love if they want?
ESEOSA: If they’re ready
I: Could you be saying that you’re not ready to love?
ESEOSA: I don’t think I am, logically, being rational.
I: Oh! Which means you also feel that love defies logic. Since you’re being logical.
ESEOSA: I mean my readiness. Am I ready to suffer ‘lack of attention’? The overthinking? The having to support someone when I need support, myself?
I: which means you also feel that love defies logic…….
ESEOSA: Not exactly, sometimes enter fuck it mode and just put head inside😂. Okay, I guess maybe it does
I: (laughs) she finally admits. Tell me Eseosa, do you really think love is for everyone? do you think everyone will eventually end up in love.
ESEOSA: Not everyone
I: Wow, so you believe some persons will eventually end up sad. Do you really think money has an influence on love?
ESEOSA: Sad? You must have love to be happy?
I: Oh! You have an awesome point! I am humbled, Eseosa. But then, do you think money has an influence on love?
ESEOSA: 😂Ahhh. This one
I: There’s no escaping you know (chuckles)
ESEOSA: I think it does? In a way. Somehow money stops nonsense, sooo
I: Would money influence your decision on love when the time comes?
ESEOSA: No, it wouldn’t. But thennn, if I were a guy, and I had to spend excessively on a babe I loved, I’d leave her oh. There’s love and there’s stupidity, like I said earlier on.
I: Ahhhhhh! (laughs) I am loving this o. I bet not much people can differentiate between the two. Would you like a boy that doesn’t spend much on you?
ESEOSA: 😂much? I have parents now.
I: (laughs) true too! This was awesome, Eseosa! Thank you for your time! Thank you much! Thank you much, much.
ESEOSA: You’re welcome;
I: Guys you can check her up on instagram and twitter on @sosothinks
THE MUSINGS OF THE LADY IN LOVE
I: Good evening Phaneeyah, as you like to bear; you are reportedly a lady in the bliss of love. What is your take on love?
PHANEEYAH: I think love is a beautiful anomaly. I call it an anomaly because it causes drastic deviations from the normal. It changes people and perspectives. It makes your nervous system to, permit me to say, malfunction. You find yourself doing things you usually wouldn’t do, saying things shocking to even you. Love turns a shy autistic person into an eloquent poet and turns an eloquent spokesman to a shy 5 year old. It’s a beautiful irony.
I: Wow! It really is an irony. So Phaneeyah, you sound so in love…..I’m guessing he might not have been the only guy contesting for your heart, What won you over?
PHANEEYAH: I’m not going to lie, as at the time I fell for him, he actually was the only one. Ours is a long, complicated love story. It makes me laugh when I think about it and we’re nowhere near our happy ending. Along the line, there have been temptations on both sides; there still are, but we always found a way back to each other. Well, he did most of the path paving, I just scrutinized and followed. Long story short, as terrible a decision maker as I am, one thing I’ve decided wholeheartedly is that I am truly, madly, deeply in love with this person.
I: I am sure if he is reading this, he’d be highly elated! Phaneeyah! Do you think your love story might have an end, do you think love stories are supposed to end?
PHANEEYAH: All stories have endings, we only pray ours will be happy. If I’m being honest, that’s my fear – a tragic ending. The thought of it alone is frightening. I hope not. I pray our love story ends with beautiful grandchildren around our deathbed where we’d be in each other’s arms. I’m that hopeless a romantic.
I: As a lady in the throes of love, do you think love is for everyone? Do you really think everyone would eventually find love?
PHANEEYAH: I don’t know how to answer this question. I wish everyone would find love, it’s beautiful when true. Unfortunately, not everyone will. It’s just the way it is. People who don’t understand this keep chasing after their idea of love and keep falling into the wrong hands because their chasing the wrong thing. So we’ve got broken people everywhere and contagious toxicity emerging from their brokenness.
I: Wow! just wow! This should actually be a plural wow! I know I’ve been on Wows all through this interview. But this wow is ‘wower’ (laughs). As much as I’d love to indulge you on this further. I’d leave it to another session. Tell me, Phaneeyah! Do you think money has an influence on love?
PHANEEYAH: Money has an influence on everything (laughs).
I: (laughing here) what tribe are you from, Phaneeyah. As much as I hate to indulge in tribal prejudice; I sometimes believe its credibility. So what tribe are you from?
PHANEEYAH: I’m Igbo.
I: Oh! perfect! (laughs) the Igbos are renowned for their love of money! As a lover, did money influence your decision?
PHANEEYAH: If money had influenced my decision then I wouldn’t be with this person 🙂
I: (chuckles lightly) I wouldn’t know your person. But I see you avoiding a direct reply cleverly. Brilliant 👏! Its really been an awesome time with you on this blog session. What is your advice for those who are single and also those heartbroken
PHANEEYAH: I’m horrible at giving advice because I don’t take it😂 all I can say is, cry if you need to, but don’t wallow in that pool of depression. Live and let live.
I: Thank you so much, Phaneeyah! It was awesome having you over! Do well to stop by some other time. Have a nice love life! You can look up on all social media platforms on @phaneeyahwrites
THE MUSINGS OF THE HEARTBROKEN LADY
I: Good evening Adora, as one who’s into literature….deducing from your profile. It is believed you must have known a lot about love. Since, we hear that readers are travelers. What is your take on love?
ADORA: Love is a feeling.. More a force of attraction, it doesn’t happen suddenly… No it doesn’t… Love is too deep to sprout out on a first sight.
I: Wow! Just Wow! So, as someone who is heartbroken, what is love?
ADORA: Love is a phase… A phase we all might come across
I: I won’t take you on that; not yet. How many times have you been heartbroken, Adora?
I: I would not know how sad it is, I am sorry about that and I really appreciate you turning out for this interview session. Now, Adora…..you must have been in love to be heartbroken and I feel at the time you chose him, he was not the only one coming. With all honesty; what won you over, then?
ADORA: We were more than friends.. Like it was like a heavenly stuff… Sha.. He was real.
I: (blushing) I can feel the love in this statement. I feel like I am reviving hidden feelings. Do you still have any pent up feelings for him? Honeeeeessssttttty pleeeeaaassseeee😬😬😬
ADORA: Yea, maybe cos my heart skips a beat anytime I see him
I: Does heartbroken mean it was not you that instigated the break up?
ADORA: I actually did
I: Wow! That must have been huge for someone you cared about (or care) that much. Was it easy for you?
ADORA: It wasn’t so easy… U know after having a perfect picture destroyed… I was looking for him in every guy I met..
I: Wow! Guys must have suffered during that period! As much as I’d love to indulge on this further, I should appreciate your honesty so far and leave it for another time. Adora; do you think love is for everyone? do you think everyone would eventually find love?
ADORA: Yes I do.
I: Wow! Contrary to what Phaneeyah the lady in love said; So you believe, there’s a partner for everyone out there?
ADORA: Yea there is.
I: This means you would definitely love again or might have fallen in love already. I won’t also indulge. Do you think money has an influence on love?I:
ADORA: No money doesn’t
I: Wow! you said that (or you typed that) with all conviction! (chuckles) Would you ever love again, Adora?
ADORA: I’m in Love already
I: That’s great! That’s really great! Adora, did money influence your decision?
I: Amazing! What’s your advice for those yet to find love?
ADORA: You don’t fall in love… You grow in love.. It’s a gradual process.. Find the right person n groom ur relationship…
I: What about the heartbroken? any word for them too?
ADORA: It didn’t work because it was not meant to last forever.. So sail on..
I: Thanks for the ride! Adora; glad to have you here!
ADORA: Thanks.. It is my pleasure
I: Folks, you can look her up on all social media platforms ‘Hannah Chiamaka’.
Its really been a wonderful time having you guys over………………Lemme take a little nap before that of the guys. I know most people really want to hear the voice of the guys.
Anticipate the next blog post (winks), and of course if you do have any suggestions in line or contrary to that of the interviewees; do well to drop them in the comment session. You could be picked for our next interview session, if you do oblige of course (winks)!
