Social media as a virtual place for meeting new people has not stopped connecting users around the world.
Nigerian ladies have in recent times shown that meeting one's heartthrob may just be some DMs away. Between 2021 and 2022, there have been stories of couples who met online and became an item.
In this report, Legit.ng will be looking at three instances where ladies accepted the proposals of men who came into their DMs.

Instead of rebuffing or ignoring his message, she replied, and their relationship kicked off from there.
A recent post she shared on Twitter revealed that they are about to get married after she had accepted his marriage proposal.
When Ameenu chatted up Yetunde in 2018, she did not leave his message hanging for long. She replied after 24 minutes.
That promptness eased things for the man and they started a relationship that later led to marriage.
When Ameenu asked how she was doing in the DM, the lady said "well" and also asked after his welfare.
3. Oke never gave up
Abraham Oke kept going to the DM of a lady he met on Facebook even after she ignored him the first time he tried because she thought he was a scam.
He came a second time and sent her "Hi". What started as a platonic relationship between two social media users blossomed into marriage and now they are married with a kid.
Mrs Oke said she never gave him attention the first time because she saw him with another lady in his profile photo and thought he had something serious going on with her.
Security-consciousness in dealing with strangers online
While it is true that love could be found on social media, evil perpetrators also explore people's fantasies of "happily-ever-after" to perpetuate their acts. Before trusting a stranger online, verify they are one who they say they are.
Lady breaks man's heart
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young man known as Uncle Bless on Facebook went online on Saturday, March 19, to write about his former girlfriend who was about to get married to another man.

In a long post on Facebook, the ex-boyfriend asked:
“Is it not the same boy I ask you about when we were dating, you said he is nothing to you…”
He went ahead to mention that the lady was always calling the now to-be-husband a brother, telling him that there can never be anything between them.
