"It all started sometimes in 2016 when I went to help my uncle buy drugs for his pharmacy store, then I met this pretty lady, on reaching the pharmacy shop where I was to get the drugs, I saw all the workers busy with customers and I stood there for up to 30 minutes, after that long waiting, one of the supervisors asked her to come and attend to me..."

How they met
A lady with a calm face and smile later came up to him and attended to him. Emmanuel stated that the next time he went to the place, he insisted the same lady serve him.
When he asked for her number, the lady turned Emmanuel down. Her work supervisor, however, later gave him the lady’s contact.
He deleted her number
After speaking for four months on the phone, the man got fed up and deleted her number because he never liked the feedback he was getting from her.
When Emmanuel returned from his nationa service in 2019, he went back to her workplace and they re-established contact.
The lady never said yes to his proposal for marriage until April 2020. In wrapping up his love story, the man appreciated his uncle, Pariku Maigari, Florence Gorge and Agnes Andrew.
She responded to my DM on time
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian couple, Ameenu and Yetunde, showed people how the internet can be used to find lasting love that leads to marriage.
In a post with photos that were shared by The Punch, Ameenu on one morning in 2018 sent Yetunde a DM, introducing himself.
After that, he asked after the lady's welfare. He then went ahead to tell the lady he has been noticing some of her posts.
Woman finally married
In similar news, a Nigerian woman, Erumena Amata, who many had ridiculed and told she was never going to see her soul mate in life finally got what she wanted.
The woman said that people told her she is just way above a woman any man would be interested in.
