Valentine Dey Knock: 7 Ways to Find Your Missing Rib This Season

Ah, Valentine! The season of love, chocolates, awkward first dates, and the age-old question: where my own person dey na? Fear not, my Nigerian brothers and sisters, for this Valentine, love no go pass you by! We bring you seven spicy ways to find your missing rib, guaranteed to have you saying “Na so e be!” instead of “E choke!” by February 15th.

1. Waka About: Ain’t Nobody Hiding in Your House.

Forget Netflix and chilling, get up and do some chilling of your own! Hit the market, strut your stuff on the beach, attend that owambe with your auntie (bless her matchmaking soul). You never know where Cupid might strike. Remember, even pepper soup no dey find person for plate, e dey wait for person for fire!

2. Online No Be Oyinbo Thing: Find Love Local.

Tinder who? Bumble what? We got Naija dating apps hotter than Agege bread! Download that local app, fill your profile with enough sass to make Fela Kuti proud, and swipe right till your fingers blister. Just remember, catfish plenty o, so shine your eyes well-well before you dive into DM like oga jumping into canal.

3. Hobby Hustle: Where Your Passion Meets Your Person.

Love board games? Join a Scrabble club! Sing like Beyoncé in the shower? Hit the karaoke bar! When you’re doing what you love, you attract people who vibe with your energy. Plus, shared interests give you something to talk about besides the weather (which, let’s be honest, is always hot anyway).

4. Friend of a Friend: Diamonds in the Rough.

Remember your friend who’s always talking about their single cousin? Or the one who throws legendary house parties? These diamonds-in-the-rough are your gateway to love! Get your network working, let your friends know you’re open for business, and prepare for some blind dates that might just open your eyes (and maybe your heart).

5. Volunteer Vibes: Do Good, Feel Good, Maybe Find Bae Too.

Giving back is good for the soul, and who knows, it might be good for your love life too. Join a food bank, teach kids to code, clean up your local park. Not only will you be making a difference, but you’ll also be surrounded by kind-hearted people who might just share your values (and your cute smile).

6. Family First: Mama Knows Best (Sometimes).

Okay, okay, maybe not always, but your mama (or auntie, or baba, or that wise neighbor who always has agbo for everything) might have some hidden gems in their rolodex. Let them know you’re looking for love (without sounding desperate o!), and trust their experience. Who knows, they might surprise you with a blind date that actually turns out to be a blind date-night (wink wink).

7. Be Yourself, Boo: Shine Bright Like the Naija Sun.

The most important secret weapon in your arsenal is you. Don’t try to be someone you’re not, just because it’s Valentine’s Day. Embrace your quirks, your laugh, your love for jollof rice. The right person will love you for exactly who you are, pepper soup bones and all. So chin up, smile wide, and let your inner light shine. Remember, the best way to find someone to love is to love yourself first.

And there you have it, folks! Seven ways to find your missing rib this Valentine’s season. Remember, love no be force, e be like suya – wait for the right smoke, enjoy the sizzle, and savor the taste. And if you don’t find “the one” by February 14th, no worries! There’s always next year, or next owambe, or maybe even the person sitting next to you on the bus right now. So keep your eyes peeled, your heart open, and your dance moves ready, because in Naija, love is always in the air, even when it’s raining akara!

Happy Valentine’s Day, my Naija peeps! Now go out there and find your own happily ever after. Na so e be!

Bonus Tip: Don’t forget to pepper your adventures with some Naija flavor! Drop a love song by Flavour or Wizkid on your online profile, surprise your date with a plate of chin-chin instead of roses, and end the night with a bonfire on the beach, roasting suya under the stars. Show your boo the beauty and spice of being Naija, and who knows, they might just become your akara to your bread, your egusi to your garri, your perfect match in
