What we love about Ife and Ayo‘s story is that it was all about the handwriting (on the wall). Read on to find out how they met.
The Meeting Story
It was physics lecture 100 level Bowen University Iwo. A mutual friend introduced us to each other.
Bride: Efe I missed the last phy110 class, how do I get the notes
Efe: I have a friend(groom), he’s an efiko he’ll have taken notes in the class.
A few hours later
Efe: Ife (bride) This is Ayo (groom) my friend I told you about.
Bride: Hi Ayo, please can I borrow your phy 110 note, Efe said you took notes
Groom: Here it is. have it
Bride: Flips through the note (* what kind of horrible handwriting is this*), Efe I can’t use this note I can’t see his writing,
Efe: ehn give it back to him na…….to be continued
Honestly can’t remember what happened afterwards, we just became inseparable from that moment on wards. Sometimes a bad handwriting could be very attractive.
Days passed, weeks passed, he (groom) became my go to person for clarifications before tests and exams. We became study partners from 100 level and became inseparable best friends. We did everything together (including sitting together during tests and exams…lol).
He always said, ‘I would marry you someday’, and I always replied ‘naaaaa’.
Fast forward to graduation, NYSC (same camp **eyes rolling**) and real life after all of that, he proposed in the most unromantic way – inside his car outside my house.
In a few days, we are going to be married and he would look at me and say ‘I told you so!’
I’m getting married to my favorite person and I’m super excited!
