Aunty’s One-on-Ones: Ultimate Love NG – Week 1 Part 2
Aunty came through to the Love Pad to touch base with the remaining eight Love Guests and their revelations tonight were illuminating. Here’s a spotlight on the last four.
After chatting to Jay it became clear to Aunty, and all of us, that this is one man who has his heart set on something very stable with clearly defined parameters. The topic of financial security came up severally and he even joked about not wanting to take someone’s daughter and make her look old because he can’t provide for her needs. Aunty was also curious to know how his parents felt about his marriage situation, but Jay was quick to express that he marches to the beat of his own drum and that they pretty-much leave him to make his own choices. Ultimately, this is a man who has a very clear vision and a checklist which left Aunty impressed but she was also curious about whether he’s willing to compromise a little in order to find true love.
Jenny Koko was brave enough to share the painful details of her early childhood and how her father struggled to run a salon and provide for her needs after her mother left when she was only two months. When Aunty inquired about her love-life, Jenny Koko also revealed that she was almost about to get married but the potential bae’s age (older than her dad’s) shut the whole thing down. Despite these setbacks, she’s optimistic about taking a chance on love in a bold way because she’s had complete strangers on social media and dating apps turn out to be amazing people after giving them a chance. She’s also keeping her heart on her sleeve as far as potential suiters are concerned, but was a little apprehensive about locking down a match because while she’s bonding with people in conversation, there’s no telling if they’re bonding too.
Michael’s gentle demeanour really shone through in his chat with Aunty. When quizzed about the importance of women in his life he lauded them for offering something profoundly special… Something men just can’t replicate no matter how hard they try. He also shared how his father passed while his mom was expecting him, making him the youngest of four. He has a close relationship with his mom as a result and he appreciates her ability to say the perfect thing to comfort him nomatter what he’s going through.
As for his quest for love, Michael believes that companionship is the most important thing and it comes first before children, though he’s really keen on having them. It’s clear that family means so much to him and he’d love to have his own, built with God as its foundation. “Why?” you might ask? “He is love, he is patient and he allows you to make all these mistakes and yet still guides your steps.” – So poignantly put Michael
Closing off Aunty’s one-on-one’s was Rosie who shared a harrowing story about how she almost lost her now, three-year-old son twice, during her pregnancy; first at 5 months and then again at 8 months making him a miracle baby. This is what inspired his name, “Jeremy”, a reminder to him to “exalt the lord” for his life.
Rosie also confessed something we’ve been seeing play out for a few days now, that she’s torn between two men who Aunty insisted she call Mr. A & Mr. B anonimously.
Judging by her discription, Mr. A, who is “introverted”, shy and doesn’t pay close attention to detail seemed like Kachi where Mr. B, who was described as fun, charming, very detail-orientated and attentive sounded like David.
(He always has her in stitches.) Rosie is also looking for someone who is both a lover and a friend because divorce and a broken family are not an option for her.
Aunty reminded her to really ask the right questions and think carefully about what the desires of her inner-most heart are.
