First to hit up the Lounge was Arnold. He opened up about what he was looking for when he first entered the Love Pad placing friendliness and connection high on his priotity list. He says this is why he made an instant connection with Bolanle. That said, they've since hit a stumbling block. Arnold feels Bolanle gets into a lot of fights with people because of her boisterious personality and sometimes doesn't listen to him or even argues and speaks over him. All this considered however, Arnold was reluctant to swap because he feels she's fronting and that the true Bolanle is a gentle soul. Aunty gave him some brilliant advice after realising that maybe Bolanle is sticking up for herself because she feels vulnerable and insecure. "Be a man. Talk to her about how she needs you to help her." Her parting words were even more poignant, "Ask yourself, 'For the sake of the other, what am I you willing to compromise? That's love!"
Iyke revealed a touching first memory: When he and Theresa first talked, she complemented his hair and offered to braid it and help him maintain it if he ever wanted her to. That first "act of kindness" really resonated with him. She also fit the profile he was looking for perfectly as he likes slim girls with nice voices. He's also fond of darker skinned ladies with nice eyes and nice lips. Despite this instant connection, Iyke told Aunty they are still discovering each other and he’s happy he found her. Unsurprisingly, he's definitely NOT swapping inside the House or out because the love and fondness just keeps growing. Before he left, Aunty quipped about whether he's afraid of Theresa's mom and Iyke giggled nervously, before revealing that their love language is physical touch but they're making sure to keep things in church.
Jay looked every bit a man smitten, smiling and laughing heartily through most of his session as Aunty pressed him for insights on his new boo Nkechi. He revealed that he was quite stressed in week one especially when Kachi was making moves on Nkechi. He let out a literal sigh of relief and said "Thank God he left her" when he recounted the moment. He also got vulnerable about how much it hurt him when Nkechi was chatting to other guys but he had to respect her wishes so she wouldn't feel pressured. He's now thrilled that they are bonding and getting closer because he was ready to checkout if it wasn't her! Now there's no way he's going swap.
David Wilson opened up about nearly losing everything after the mistake he made. Aunty quizzed him about the motive behind his actions, and he confessed that he was too afraid to be honest with Rosie about what he was feeling in the moment. He takes ownership for his actions now and he's excited to be with Presh. Why? He's not too fussed about tradition having grown up around many women and actually appreciates it when a woman is strong, "no-nonsense", confident and assertive so she can take the lead sometimes. On the matter of Rosie, he concluded that he loves her still, but he's happy with them being friends and is not confused about his intentions.
