But am in a bit of dilemma right now? so am in Love with this girl i met during my Youth Service, but the problem is I live in Abuja and she lives in Lagos. As result, this has discouraged the girl in accepting to date me coz she thinks our distance is already a barrier to the relationship. Pls what should i do?

    1. Am quite sorry about your dilemma. Remember, there’s nothing love cannot achieve. If you truly love her, then make it happen. Make her see things from your perspective. Make her know that distance shouldn’t be a barrier for what you both truly feel for each other. And if she truly feels the way you feel for her, she’d definitely see reasons with you, and give you a chance! All you need to do, is prove that you’re genuinely worthy and serious! All the best Isaac. Kindly stay safe!?
