Aunty’s One-on-Ones: Ultimate Love NG
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 first four.
First to have a seat in Aunty’s Lounge was David, who opened up about his childhood and the challenges he had bonding with his mom who, though she meant to protect him, was a little heavy-handed with the rod. Now that he’s older, he realises how fearful she was of losing her only son to the streets of the rough neighbourhood he grew in and he empathises.
When Aunty quizzed him about the mood in the Love Pad, he revealed that he’s loving the positive vibe which fits his personality as he doesn’t respond well to negative vibes. He also confessed that he’s sometimes confused for a clown because he just wants to make people laugh and lift the mood.
Cherry’s sitdown with Auntie proved to be quite heavy. She opened up about enduring domestic abuse as a young child and being told awful things like she’d be “dead by 15”. While she had a profoundly beautiful relationship with her dad initially, this changed after he remarried and she had to flee from home and go live with her mom. The tears started flowing when she recounted how beautiful it was seeing her mom in good health after years of being told she was sickly and dishevelled. They also bare a striking resemblance
Aunty then zeroed in on how this trauma has affected her outlook on love and Cherry revealed that she tries to be grateful for life and positive (which is evidenced by her bubbly personality. It also informed her decision to become a doctor because she wanted to offer her children saftey and security. She also wants her family to be a shining example of love and happiness so she can inspire others.
Ikye proved, once again, that he’s got wisdom far beyond his years and a profound intellect. As Aunty pointed out, one would expect a 24-year-old to be thinking about having fun and living his best life, but Iyke made it clear from the jump, “I’m exactly were I need to be and I’m not missing out on anything.” This is a pattern that continued throughout his one-on-one as he confessed that he’s already pretty-much made up his mind about his match and was “80% sure”.
Aunty also got him to touch on what he’s looking for and he said that his mom is very hands-on and was intensely engaged in their upbringing so he wants that same compassion and concern in a partner. Before parting and thanking Aunty (classic gentlemen), he also revealed that Ultimate Love is the perfect platform for him because unlike a regular home environment, there are no distractions or worries to stress over so he can give his potential wife his full attention.
Nkechi’s family had reservations about her coming onto a reality show to find love, but she made it clear to Aunty she wasn’t going to change her mind nomatter what they say. She also recounted how she was stuck in a relationship with a guy who was non-commital for almost 10 years. She broke it off after picking up on some negative traits in her partner that left her unhappy, and she hadn’t been happy for a while. The shy marketing maverick thinks the Love Pad is a perfect opportunity for her to breakaway and find her one and only after missing out on so much.
