Marq with a Q

So lately I’ve been writing about my failed attempts at find love and all my epi fails
enters Marq yep Marq with a Q, I know it sounds so sexy let me say it again Marq with a Q.


(Back story….my favorite time)

Marq and I met on Instagram around three years ago… sound like an intro to MTV’s Catfish, lol I love the show, ok let’s go on, he slid a message into my DM some cheesy line, I forgot what is was but it was gorgonzola cheesy, within a few days we exchanged numbers and started texting and calling each other, for some strange reason we had a fall and stopped communicating (Totally Catfish).

Marq and I always seem to gravitate towards each other, he responds to my texts within seconds and always knows how to cheer me up or calm me down and we can spend hours on the phone talking about well everything, he is not the sharpest tool in the box but I find that really cute and adorable  you know explaining sarcasm and  how he always complains about me using big words … cute.

But there is always a  BUT
Marq is seeing someone else, but has hinted on more than one occasion that he would like to take things further with me buuuut  he is not willing or about to leave the person he is with for me . soo  I’m super skeptical  about that, so for now I like what we have this cute flirty, texty, cally thing we have going on so until he decides to leave his girlfriend  it will remain as that …..Marq with a Q

Butterflies in Kaleidoscope and Sweetness of Love


A few days ago I went on a date ….Yeay… A date with an actual person, like an actual person actually finds me interesting.

He is a Horticulturist and I’m a huge fan of Botany especially flowering poisonous plants and carnivorous plants (lol call me Poison Ivy)

Our whole discussion was on the different types of natural toxins such tetrodotoxin, Batrachotoxin (BTX) and Botulinum toxin which are by far some of the deadliest toxins  found in some of the most beautiful plants and creatures Like my favourite  The Deadly Night Shade

(Back to the date)

So this is how it went down …….  We have been texting on social media for a while and decided hey what the heck lets meet up for lunch (lunch for me was a free beer and well more free beer and picking food off his plate like I have the worst date manners)
He came there looking all semi-formal and dapper he was not the most handsome of men  but he had this smile that took you away , and there I was with my oversized baggy T-shirt, torn jeans and dirty sneakers I even forgot that I had a date like really it has been that dry.  He introduced himself as, let us call him Mr. Freeze …..Get it ….Mr. Freeze …Batman and Robin …..Uma Thurman. Ok, ok back to the date

He was such a gentlemen and complimented me on my clothes oh such flattery normally I get a You could have dressed better or an oh you look nice, but he went all out showered me with lovely compliments had me blushing and smile from ear to ear no one has ever made me smile that much, I felt like a little school girl on her first date .

He found me interesting,  like he  found it really interesting that I knew so much about plants and herbs and  ecotoxicology, he even gave me ring after  the date to tell me what a great time he had  and that I was by far the most peculiar and fun person he had ever  met, even  asked when will he see me again (oh my bad date manners , he ordered a pizza so yeah he didn’t mind me picking of his plate and to make things even better he is a beer guy like same brand and all) so who knows  soon there might a Return of Batman and Robin Movie ….get it ….Poison Ivy and Mr Freeze…

“Hey Caroline”

Ok so I’m not really a white girl named Caroline, this is the tale of how I got dubbed the name “Hey Caroline”


I have been told countless of times that I speak like a white girl like, whatever that means, because I use phrases like “Omg! I am so lime green Jell-O”, “Like whatever guy”  words like totes, TTFN, Like and my favourite word “Totally” a lot which is not how your average black South African male speaks  I am also very articulate  when it comes to English which is by the way me second language , back to Caroline

I was at an event with one of closest friends Katlego Nyoni and as usual I head to my favourite place THE BAR while he worked the crowd and secured us a couple of cute boys to chill with, had a few drinks and that’s when I go into full on Caroline mode speech pattern changes accent goes to somewhat of a bad blend of British and Australian yikes, body language morphs from ridged to more flirty at that moment one would swear that I am Transformer.

As the evening went on Katlego and I decide to do our dance routine yep we have our own little cheerleader meets Britney Spears, meet Christina Aguilera meets The Pussycat Dolls meets Burlesque sexy cute dance going on, mind u this is at a hip-hop event and here are these two little Fairies dancing and prancing around like Princess Holly and Princess Molly on the empty dancefloor, the boy we were with stood up and cheered us on as the rest of crowed stared in awe.

We went back to our table giggling like two little school girls, one of the guys said “you guys are like two crazy white chicks” Katlego and looked at each other as if to confirm what he had said and we laughed, we continued with conversation with the boys who looked better and better after each bottle we downed , that very same guy said again “ you two are like white girls”, “ but him” pointing to me “ Is way worse” , “ he is a Caroline, the things he says and the way he speak it’s like a white girl in a black man’s body” Kat looked and me and giggles and confirms what he just said , as the evening went on everyone at the table started referring to me as White Girl Caroline, which led to them introducing me to everyone else as Caroline, by the end of the night everyone there was on some  “hey Caroline “ it was time to leave so I managed to sneak a snog with one of the boys and we headed back home.

Since then I’ve grown quite  fond of the name, I still do at times refer to myself as Caroline even posted a status on Facebook about being Caroline , and the name has caught on. I’ll get that “Hey Caroline “every now and then on social media.

 A few months later we bump into the exact same guys and guess what they said “Hey Caroline”
