I hope you’re all doing well! For those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma, I sympathize with how sad and depressed you feel. I am sorry that you had to go through that. I pray God restores you to wholeness!
I recently had a sit down with with my friend, Ashley Dixon, owner of TheBookOfAshley We thoroughly enjoyed the conversation! She walks me through her decision to have sex, and how five years after, and certain unpleasant events, that same decision morphed into a choice to be celibate.
In the beginning, it was not a spiritual journey for her, but it has soon evolved into an important part of her walk with Christ as the body and the spirit are very connected! She is now a staunch advocate for waiting till marriage before introducing sex to a relationship.
I really enjoy your kind comments and encouragement as I take on this journey of walking in my purpose! I am here for you! Please always reach out to talk, a word of prayer, comments, or any questions you think I may be of help in answering!

I asked my social media followers to let me know topics they would like me to address. The consensus landed on sex and relationships. A few months back, I addressed sex, purity and virginity on a blogpost here. But people always seem to need some clarification on the topic, so I happily accepted the request to address these issues in my video.

First and foremost, THANK YOU! I truly appreciate you for taking this journey with me. I started my blog in May 2015, with one goal. I wanted my work to positively influence at least one person! I’m glad to say this goal has been exceeded, all thanks to God and you!
Over the years, I have shared various milestones with you – Successful internships, graduation with an honors in accounting, amazing trips across the world, landing a ‘good job,’ leaving said job, exploring a new field, and now, taking my passion for communication and a ‘good ol’ chat’ to the video scene.
I am so excited to now present to you, Oreofetalks videos! I am hosting them on YouTube. Please watch, like, leave a comment, tell me something I can do better, subscribe to my YouTube channel and share the video!
Just like the blogs, the videos will go live on Thursdays, I am still working on the time frame that works best. Please connect with me on all social media. I look forward to taking this exciting new journey with you!
Effective/ great/ good communication in our romantic relationships are non-negotiable. It needs to exist as the foundation for a healthy relationship.
I asked around about communication in relationships… let’s delve in!
Female 1: Constant communication is what makes a relationship easy. It is what establishes trust because you can talk about any and everything. If your partner is not communicating with you it must be the underlying cause of a different issue. Some partners may be shy and It may take a while for them to open up. When marriage becomes a topic, there should be no boundaries or shyness. I personally would not marry someone who couldn’t communicate his thoughts with me or lacked the initiative to check on me every few hours.
From my experience being in a long distance relationship, one absolute no-no is “assuming your partner knows you have had a busy day and wouldn’t mind if you didn’t talk or check in with her for a day.”
“Never assume that your partner automatically knows how you feel. Especially if you’re not okay with something he/she did.” If you don’t communicate, your partner may not even know you’re upset. Continue reading →
Live in the now. Tomorrow is far away. If you love someone, say so. The repercussions of holding your breath are usually not worth it.
Dele and Halima go way back… way back to a time of purity, innocence and child-like love. Dele always liked Halima, but never said so. Halima was a free bird. Hard to pin down. She was very much aware of the emotions from Dele, but she was not going to say a word, and they were babies.
You see, there’s this thing about love, love does not respect your boundaries. Love does not care if you’re ready, or not. You think love addresses age? No… You can find love at 2, or 10, maybe 22, could be 58, or even 83… There is no set age for love. I can only hope and pray that if you’re old enough to read and understand this write-up, you have at one point, or currently are experiencing love. Love is stronger than death. It consumes your being.
Now, would this love, romantically, be possible to be felt by one person for two individuals? Have we ever really thought about polygamy? How do people come to terms with ‘sharing their love?’
‘My parents/ siblings/ family/ significant other/ friends/ celebrities keep pushing my nerves! I can’t wait to get out!’
‘Gosh! This is so irritating! Could you just stop it!’
‘Henry’s mouth stinks so bad! He is gross.’
‘Folake keeps wearing the same shoes! It’d be nice for her to switch it up sometime.’
We are almost all guilty of thinking, or saying these at one point or the other. Welcome to life. There are high times, there are low times. There are times when you feel like nothing could be going better for you, and time when you feel like nothing is going right for you! In those high times, we tend to be oh so jolly, but in the low times, what do we resolve to?
It’s really easy to complain. As much as there is caution to stop complaining, many times even from ourselves, we get a good feeling from venting out our concerns! Bottling things in can also be very risky. So, where do we draw the line?
I would like to test out putting a spin on our ‘complain models’ by suggesting we do the following. I can only pray that I am able to follow my own advice as this is also a weakness of mine.
