My husband and I met on a Christian singles website (free) in June 2004. I had recently broken up with my ex-boyfriend and was looking for someone to talk to. So not looking to start another relationship, especially a transatlantic relationship. On top of that, my husband is Nigerian. I typically stay away from African men. They are way too aggressive for me. I had more reservations about getting involved with a Nigerian. I know how notorious they can be about fraud and scamming. Fola however was different. He is everything thing I asked God for. We started out very innocent and friendly. I made it very clear that we would only be friends. He had other ideas and very smoothly wooed me. Our relationship progressed, and we had intentions for me to visit him in the summer of 2005. Those plans fell through and we rescheduled for December of that year. Those plans fell through and we rescheduled again for the next month, January 2006. These plans actually made it out of the water, and on Saturday January 28th, 2006 I left Columbus for London. His father lives in London and I went to visit him first before going to meet Fola in Lagos. His father thought it was very funny that he was going to meet me before his son got to see me. I stayed with my father in law for two nights before leaving London on Tuesday January 31st. I met my Fola that night and it's been on since. We were married 2 weeks later, and I left on February 25th.
