Blog Reader Needs Your Advice.... Urgently!

Dear TILB readers, I don't know how to handle this. 
I have been single for a while now Almost four years, (25yrs now), not that I haven't been dating but I haven't been in a real relationship for quite a while now because I want to go prepare myself for the best when it comes, I'v just had casual r/ship  for about a year now with guy that was in a r/ship and I knew it couldn't workout so I didn't put all my hopes there. But I was with him because I really liked him, he possessed features I liked too, so I could bear, even though he really didn't treat me the way I wanted. 
Just recently, I happened to see a guy that treats me like an angel but TILB readers, I can't imagine falling for him because he's got Angular Cheilitis and that irritates me a lot, (saliva  popping out slightly from the corners of his mouth). I wish I could tell him politely to treat it but how can I do this without hurting his feelings? Plus he isn't so tall as well,. Asides that, he is God sent, and I'd really feel bad for not returning his feelings,  but I can't stand that and I really love my men tall and clean. I can overlook his average height but can't stand the other one but so far he's the nicest I have seen. 
I need your advice please. I'm tempted to move on and look for someone else.

My Suicide Attempt Wasn’t Because of a Man – Halima Abubakar

3 days ago, Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, on her Instagram account, hinted that she almost committed suicide last year. Sources alleged that she actually wanted to take her own life due to ‘man palaver.’ And according to Halima, none of her close friends even commented on her post so she referred to them as “fake friends.”

However, when Saturday Beats contacted the actress concerning the allegation that her suicide attempt was because of a man, she denied it. She said she wanted to commit suicide simply because she was “depressed.” She however, refused to give details concerning what led to her depression.
“Sorry I don’t want to share the experience, I have been talking about depression for a long time. I don’t want to have an interview,” she said.

No Big Deal Marrying My Ex-Wife’s Niece – Kwam1

Fuji artiste, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, popularly known as K1, in 2012 wedded his ex-wife's niece, Opeyemi Adupe Fathai Marshal and last August, they welcomed their first child together. In a new interview with PUNCH, Kwam 1 says it was no big deal doing that. That afterall, if we all start tracing the lineage of some people, you would even find out that some men may have married their sisters and nothing happened. He also talked about being a polygamist and having no regrets whatsoever about it. Excerpts:

  • You don’t always want to talk about the number of wives and children you have. Don’t you think that there might be a heavy ‘war’ amongst your family members when you are gone from this world?
When King Solomon in the Bible died, there was no issue among his wives and children. If it didn’t happen in the time of Solomon, it will not happen in my time. How many kids do I even have? How many women have I known? There are so many people out there who even have more than we can ever think of. It is on record that Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. If somebody like
