The Single Chronicles: The Baby Daddy 

​ “You know what, I don’t care what you do. Go. I have things to do.” Her words are still on my mind. Was it really necessary that we argue? She added I should consider us over. What a really horrible day, considering it’s my birthday and I’m supposed to have an awesome day, today…

The Single Chronicles : The FWB Part 4

“Munda Wakudala Suvuta Kulima” -Zambian Proverb “Ba guy, Thandiwe is a babe. Is she still single?” It’s one thing to let a woman wait for you and it’s another thing to actually watch her wait and hope for the best. But it’s also something else to watch her get close to another man while you…

The Single Chronicles: The FWB 3

“Ask him Thandiwe. Ask him.” I tell myself as I sit down next to him in Rhapsodys restaurant. A fresh glass of wine is put in front of me as I move my chair closer to the table. What good will it do to get him moody now? He is talking to his twin sister…

The Single Chronicles: The FWB

I feel his presence before he touches me. His hand pushes my hair away before I feel his lips on my neck. “What time is it?” I ask as I yawn. “Zero-Two.” He answers as his hand finds it’s way to my back. Aren’t you tired? “You are late.” I say “Are you angry?” “No.”…

The Single Chronicles: The Long Distance Boyfriend

I am guilty. I used to say long distance relationships didn’t work till I found myself in one. Let’s be honest. They just don’t work. Okay fine mine seems to have worked through time. I’ve heard of other people who have made them work for two years and get married and that’s awesome. But come on…

The Single Chronicles: The Catch 6 – Finale Ntazana

“So y’all are here to kill Tucker?” I say. Inonge suppresses a smirk and shakes her head at my silly attempt to be punny. The rest didn’t seem to understand it. “Glad one of us finds this funny.” Wezi hisses. She seems to be the ring leader here; in this blurred scenario, that aspect is…

The Single Chronicles: The Catch 5 – Ntazana

I was good at my job, almost perfect. Numbers. I loved how they danced around on paper and excel sheets, I gave them nothing but respect. Not having had the most comfortable childhood, sometimes a little rough, but the love that surrounded me was enough. Tall, dark and handsome they described me, of all the…

The Single Chronicles: The Catch 4 -Inonge

“Come with me!” He said with a wide smile and a sparkle in his eyes. “Come on Inonge, what’s stopping us?” The answer was obviously no. I couldn’t go on a haphazard work trip with him to Cape Town. I looked at him in amusement as he paced around my office describing the trip to…

The Single Chronicles: The Best Friend

   My brain is sending signals but my body won’t listen. Maybe if I use my heart I could still salvage the situation. Don’t they say once the heart makes a decision it’s final? But the stupid organ is in this for the result. Abort mission.  Abort mission. But my body is numb. Stuck on…

The Single Chronicles: Ms Never Settle

Love is complicated. I swear it is. Sometimes it’s funny and breathless with a touch of bad days. Either way complicated. Then again love is the emotion and we humans are the complicated ones.

The Single Chronicles: The Husband (The Flirt 3)

“I still love you.” All I hear is her silence and the call cuts. She hung up on me. Rule 1: calm down. Women are dramatic. Women are too dramatic. Typical of Isabelle. Always avoiding emotional talks. And where was she? That background noise I heard sounded like she was in a club or bar or…

The Single Chronicles: The Mother

“Stop avoiding the topic. You are thirty. A mother. Why are you single again?” Because men like you treat women like me like we are scum. But I keep my answer to myself. This is a date and I will live through this hell to the very end. I’ve been on dates before – when…

The Single Chronicles: The Flirt 2

Some men are giving me weird stink eyes. I hate being judged for doing something that others do everyday. What’s wrong with meeting a guy in a bar. Granted I picked him from the rest but hey if it turns out to a safe bet then why not. And if it goes past the bar…

The Single Chronicles: The Faithful Woman

“You have an STI.” What a joke. This doctor is a joker. Me. An STI. From who? My thoughts went from the doctor who’s lips were still moving to my boyfriend who was probably at work right at this moment. Son of a cheater… Calm down I tell myself. “HIV/AIDS” My thoughts disappear as I…
