Yvonne Orji Dating
Yvonne Orji has very strict rules when it comes to dating. The first and foremost thing is that there’s no sex.
Yes, you heard it right. Yvonne is pretty strict about her “no sex” policy while dating. As a result, she’s a virgin at the age of 37.
Judging by today’s standards, this is absolutely crazy because people don’t think like this, not especially people of this generation.
But, we’ll talk about this later, you know.
First, let’s get you filled in on Yvonne’s extra spicy affair with a hunk of a boyfriend.
Yvonne Orji & Boyfriend Emmanuel Acho
In 2018, Yvonne took it to her Instagram to reveal her absolutely amazing and sizzling hot boyfriend.
Moreover, in mid-2018, Yvonne posted a picture with a handsome black dude, a picture that has since been deleted.
In that picture, Yvonne wrote a caption that confirmed her relationship with former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho.
Fun fact, he’s also Nigerian, just like Yvonne. Another reason they connected.
“Jesus out here answering prayers on a Sunday.”
Instagram, along with the whole internet, went mad over this revelation, and since then, Yvonne became quite open about her relationship.
She also shared some steamy pictures with her ESPN Analyst boyfriend during their vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
However, her relationship did not last very long. The end came about after a year of dating.
Yvonne Orji and Emmanuel Acho Break Up
In early 2019, Yvonne talked about her relationship status.
Fans were speculating that something was off in her personal life, and as it turned out, she and partner Emmanuel Acho have gone their separate ways.
In her Jesus & Jollof podcast, Yvonne talked about her new relationship status when her co-host revealed her engagement news.
After her co-host, Luvvie Ajayi dropped her new relationship news, Orji also said that she was single.
But there’s more.
Orji revealed that she was really fine with the breakup and was moving on from it very positively.
While people usually have a couple of weeks long tantrum, Yvonne revealed her calm journey through a breakup and how her faith in God helped her.
Orji said that she has seen God’s motive for her and that she’s certain of good things are on her way.
“I just have to say, the reason why I am so good and so happy is that I know how God works. I have seen God’s MO so many times, that like in the way that you can be like, ‘Aw man, but I thought this was it! I thought this was the one!’ God be like, ‘Oh, that’s what you thought? I got the goods for you.’”
She related it with her professional life and how, when she thought one job was the one to succeed, it did not yield her expected results.
But rather, the one after that, “Insecure,” gave her the success she thought of.
She told this all in her podcast that you can listen to on SoundCloud.
Since Orji revealed her breakup, fans have also been very curious if Orji is still a virgin or not because her relationship did look very steamy.
Is Yvonne Orji A Virgin In 2021?
The short answer is yes. Yvonne is a virgin in 2021.
Now, let’s talk about why exactly Yvonne remains a virgin while the world of dating so much to offer her.
The short answer to that is her strong faith, which drove her to abstain from sex until her marriage.
But how did that happen?
Yvonne is an immigrant from Nigeria, and that means her parents have a whole different perspective towards dating, relationship, and sex in general.
They strictly told her that she could not date anyone until she got married. Also, her parents instilled the fear of God, and as Yvonne puts it, “fear of his (her father’s) belt.”
Yvonne was pretty sure that she was going to date and was sure she’d become sexually intimate with her boyfriend as soon as she turned 18.
However, her first-time expectations from a romantic relationship were very high, and her young college dates did not seem very promising or could meet her expectation.
Then Orji Decided To Wait
However, as she began getting older, waiting for the kind of man who would meet her expectations, that was a very romantic setting, filled with emotions.
Orji later realized that she was waiting on some traits rather than just blindly abstaining from becoming sexually intimate with a man.
She’s waiting on,
- A person who sees her for “her,” and loves her regardless.
- A person who sees value in what she does.
- She waits for purpose, not because of fear.
- For someone who makes her a priority.
- The one who meets her standards. (Not materialistically.)
Her Journey To Acting
Do you remember when we told you that Yvonne’s parents are quite strict? Well, that imprinted on her professional journey as well.
Both her parents wanted to make her doctor, engineer, or something in that league when she grew up.
Because of that, Yvonne picked her subjects accordingly. She has a degree in sociology, followed by a master’s degree in public health.
Orji went with public health because she did not make it to medical school. However, later, Orji took on a different path.
On her brother’s suggestion, she reluctantly enrolled in a pageant and did comedy as a showcase of her talent. It worked out.
Sometime later, she took the guts of pursuing her passion for comedy and acting despite her parent’s disapproval.
During the initial days, Orji was broke most of the time, living off $2.75 pizza but still remaining focused on her career.
Things changed when she took her family story to YouTube, and that attracted Issa Rae’s attention. That’s how Orji made it into “Insecure,” which eventually got her success.
Her parents are also very proud of her these days, but still a little conservative. Apart from “Insecure,” Orji has appeared in Spontaneous, Night School, Jane the Virgin, and more.
