I was afraid of getting her pregnant! Plain and simple. This was not because I didn’t love her, it was simply that that reality of our circumstance meant we could not afford to become parents yet.

My heart still races any time I am around Chinyere. I am yet to find out if it is her smile, her eyes or just the sound of her voice but what I do know is that this racing heart of mine absolutely belongs to her!

We have been dating for over 1 year now and I know for a fact she is my “Ada Owerri''.

She spends many of her weekends at my place and sometimes we take trips together but for a long time in the course of our relationship I was not been very happy.

We have talked about sex and had even been sending “naughty” messages to ourselves but anytime we are together I would look for an excuse to get us out of the house, needless to say this was very frustrating for me and for a while I started feeling like avoiding her altogether which hurts so bad.

I was sad, confused and frustrated for many weeks until I learnt through a commercial on campus radio that we could use a condom during sex which could not only prevent unwanted pregnancies but STI’s as well and how i could easily walk into a pharmacy or clinic and get them. (maybe for free)

I am sure the relief I felt that day could fill a well as finally Chinyere and I could do ‘love wan tin tin’ without the fear of an unplanned pregnancy.

I remember vividly the day I went to the pharmacy to buy condoms. I was so nervous and tensed that I walked pass the entrance many times before I went in only to discover that I had to wait in line behind 6 other guys who were all there to buy condoms!

N.B

I got the strawberry flavored ones.
