DEAR BELLA: I think Covid has destroyed my love relationship


This Covid-19 pandemic has seriously caused an upset in my relationship and I don’t know If I am handling the matter with wisdom.

I have been dating this man for about just over three years. We are between houses. I mean we would spend time at each other’s homes. He mostly sleeps over on weekends but visits regularly. Or I would visit him on weekends or whenever I want.

A few weeks ago, when the Covid numbers started to climb, I told him we should stop doing the weekend thing.

The reason is because we don’t live together and he works in a supermarket and I work at another local business place where I see a lot of people every day.

He said he can still come over but we’ll wear masks and social distance.

I told him that’s not making sense. That two of us can’t be in a house and social distance when all we want to do is be close to each other. That, in itself, is too tormenting.

Just because I told him let us wait until everything dies down, he got upset and now I understand another woman sleeps in his house with him

He no longer wants to do late time conversations and I popped in to collect something I left there and saw a woman there indeed.

I am truly hurt by this. Covid has destroyed my life. I asked him if I could come over this weekend and he replied, “Covid is Real. Let’s Social Distance”. I know he was just throwing this back in my face.

Should I fight for my relationship? Or agree that Covid has destroyed it once and for all?


Wrong Move


Hello Wrong Move,

I don’t think Covid-19 can be blamed for destroying your relationship. Although the disease is deadly, what is deadlier is a relationship that is not solid enough to ride out pandemics.

If your boyfriend truly loved you, then surly he would not move into another relationship (whether serious or not), just because you wanted to find responsible ways of ensuring the health and safety of the both of you.

The mindset of your lover wants to lead me to believe that sooner or later the relationship would have ended.

Perhaps Covid did you a favor.

Move on with your life.

    OH no Bella! I am beginning to believe this complainer is a good friend of nurse Wetcome from Stocky City.

    What covid have to do with it? A man needs throw his water on a regular basis so when the woman start finding a reason to be stingy any smart man will run. Bella, nuff man taking blows because of the covid eh. The woman thought she could play the man like Nurse Wetcome did but little did she know the guy is smarter. Them days parlreps dose give covid vaccines big day much less for a whole weekend. And some of them vaccine needles they using big and break inside people. And them comes the biotin.

    Next thing the man go by to feed his dog and all he hearing is “talk to me madam speaker,ALL U talk to me?” Some women have too much tricks and think they always ahead but dahpway them. 8) . The man done meet a thickers that like his vaccine and will not allow covid to take her big needle vaccine from her. So madam, check your sin because the partner has moved on. Your loss.

    I think bella didn’t understand.boyfriend wanted to spend time she wanted to social distance. Instead of placing value in her relationship she was stubborn. The man even suggest coming over, social distancing and wearing mask. Maybe he didn’t want to wait who know how long this virus going to be around for ? Should he wait for two years to meet ?

    Covid didn’t destroy your relationship. This was in the making a long time ago, you just didn’t see it or failed to acknowledge it.

    To echo Bella, your boyfriend used Covid as a convenient reason to stage his exit. Be sure to focus on your health and overall well being moving forward. I wish you meet another suitor who is willing and able to go the distance with you. Been there, done that! So can you.

    Bella you self you not hearing is a free up that there? All of a sudden she dont want to social distance as she see a next woman willing to take the chance. The man checking he checking for who checking him boy. He even offer suggestions. But you wanted to play part. How another woman in the house willing to sacrifice her health and her life for what was once yours, only now you want to fight. Take the man for granted still. Think is lovey dovey he want to be on phone with you still. That does get old. only so much you can say so many times.

    Nah either he already had that woman or things were already heating up to move so quickly. Covid did not damage your relationship, it was already damaged- you just didn’t know it yet. I agree with Bella on this one- Covid did you a favor.

    Move on with your life. That wasn’t love at all. In my opinion, he was there for the sex.
