People break up for different reasons and while some reasons may not seem big enough, an ick is an ick. And once you get the ick, there is simply no going back from it. From failing Cowbellpedia questions to bragging about a non-existent sex game, 6 Nigerian women share the reasons they ended things with a partner.

I met this man, and all I can say is that he was the most beautiful man I had ever set my eyes on.
Anyway, we were chilling at his place one evening and decided to watch Tv and somehow stumbled on Cowbellpedia. You know how it goes now – a group of brilliant secondary school children answering mathematics or science questions. So a very easy question was asked and this guy confidently picked the wrong option. I thought he was playing at first but it turned out he wasn’t because he failed the next 3 – 4 questions too. The ridiculous and embarrassing part was that the questions were really really easy! In my mind I was like “omo this one no sabi anything o” and just instantly got turned off. I made sure we never hung out again after that day.
Sorry but if you marry this one who will be teaching the kids assignment when you are not available?

He promised to buy me a bag and didn’t. Look it wasn’t just the bag, he would always promise to buy me things and wouldn’t. My big mouth would then out of excitement tell my friends and he would just disappoint which always made me look stupid. My friends will now ask “What about the wig X promised to buy you?” and I’ll just be there speechless, like a fool.
It wasn’t even expensive gifts, even basic things he would promise and fail. The bag was the last straw, I got tired and told him to be going abeg.
Promise-and-fail guys are the worst because who asked you? Promising to bring heaven to earth unasked just to disappoint. Kmt.

I went to a house party and sat beside a really cute guy. We got talking, he took my number and promised to reach out after the party – and he did. We went on a date shortly after that and sadly I had to travel to Abuja to see my sister. While I was away, things got exciting and we started throwing I like you’s into our conversations and even sexted one time. I came back after two weeks, met him at his house, and we had sex. I am not over-exaggerating when I say it was one of the worsts I have ever had. I had high hopes and it crashed down. Like this was a guy that told me “he would make me cum all over his d*ck”. I made excuses for him sha, that maybe because it was his first time with me, or because we hadn’t seen for a while.
Second arrangement came and it was the same. The annoying thing was that I tried to guide him to please me how I wanted, but he was proving stubborn so I told him my period started and I had to go home. I deleted and blocked his number in the Uber on my way home.
It is not enough that his action doesn’t match his words, he refused to take instructions too?

I caught him cheating and he told me he was only trying to make sure nobody drove him crazy like I do when it comes to sex.
Say What?! Flabbergasted is an understatement o.
5. Kenny, 23
A couple of years ago, I dated this cool guy that was really into me but the problem was he would always lie and brag about his sex game – unprovoked! He would brag about making my legs shake but end up giving the very bare minimum. One time during sex, I just couldn’t help but say “Hey, we should break up” – right then during the act. Probably the worst way to break up but hey, I didn’t ghost him!
Nigerian women abandoning men that don’t know how to pleasure them is top 2 things that I love to see and it is not number 2! More of this please.
6. Stephanie, 27
Doesn’t really count as dating but I needed help with directions and saw this nice guy that helped me out. We vibed well and exchanged phone numbers. Later in the day we were texting and he replied am fine.
Am?? Really?? That was honestly just it for me.
Can’t lie, not knowing how to text properly is such a deal breaker for me too. It takes the attraction from a 100 to a 0 very quickly.
