Nonny wants Pule to pro­pose but will she be left smil­ing after their date? Week­days SABC2 (*192) 21:00

Sec­re­tary Nonny’s (Phindile Gwala) lovelife looks dis­mal. She’s swum a mile through the dat­ing pool and drowned ev­ery time be­cause no one matches up to hand­some busi­ness­man Pule (Zwelethu Nkut­sho). They met at the MMC of­fices in March 2016 and they’ve been on and off since then, but Nonny’s hop­ing that their ro­man­tic date on Wed­nes­day 21 De­cem­ber will end with a ring…

ANTI-CLI­MAX

No sur­prises here – Nonny doesn’t get what she wants. “She as­sumed that he would pop the ques­tion,” says Phindile. “But Pule just takes her on a bor­ing, reg­u­lar din­ner date. She’s in love with him but can’t un­der­stand why he won’t com­mit.” On Thurs­day 22 De­cem­ber, Nonny re­lays her story to her ex-boss and friend Than­daza (Sindi Dlathu), adding that she’s worried about Pule’s com­mit­ment. Fed up, Nonny phones Pule on Fri­day 23 De­cem­ber and puts him on the spot, de­mand­ing the truth. “Their ar­gu­ment is volatile and Nonny feels bad for putting pres­sure on Pule, but at least she seems to be get­ting an­swers…” Phindile re­veals.

BRAKES & BREAK-UPS

The fight ends on Mon­day 26 De­cem- ber when Pule tells Nonny that he just wants to do things the right way and take things slow. But Nonny isn’t in the mood for tak­ing things slow, ex­plains Phindile. “She wants to move in with him and in­tro­duce him to her fam­ily so that she can get her hap­pily ever after.” Frus­trated, Nonny con­fides in Than­daza on Tues­day 27 De­cem­ber that it’s time to take a break from Pule since they’re clearly not on the same page. She’s prob­a­bly not ex­pect­ing the sad look on Pule’s face after their chat on Wed­nes­day 28 De­cem­ber – he’s heart­bro­ken but Nonny has made up her mind.

HIGH HOPES

Be­ing dumped is a wake-up call for Pule and he’s ready to man up on Mon­day 2 Jan­uary – he ar­rives at Nonny’s fam­ily home to meet her rel­a­tives. “She’s over the moon that he makes a move and is putting an ef­fort in their re­la­tion­ship,” ex­plains Phindile. “She seems to have for­got­ten their re­cent fight, es­pe­cially when Pule hints that he wants to ask Nonny’s fa­ther Malume Themba (Magic Hlatshwayo) some­thing very im­por­tant. “She’s hop­ing that it will be for her hand in mar­riage…” teases Phindile.
