So I stumbled upon this message sent by some dude to one of my favorite bloggers Stella Dimoko Korkus.Apparently she previously did a post discouraging women from carrying the (financial) burden in relationships and that post led to this message. When I first read this my reaction was
Is this guy for real?
First off, my thinking is that for a guy to spew this kind of crap he is obviously used to being taken care of by his present girlfriend and those in the past and that's why her sudden refusal upset, confused and dumbfounded him.
Then I had to ask, do girls still do this? In the past, when we were younger and less wise, most of us, at least once, took care of our boyfriends. Yes, we bought them credit for their phones, we lent them money we knew we'd never get back, we emptied our accounts to buy them gifts, we inflated the amount of our text books to take them out, some of us dated "aristos" to feed our boyfriends, we bought them clothes, with our own money we made them those sexy pots of ofe-onugbu decorated with stock fish and kpomo and shaki and snails and chicken etc etc etc. But come on, that was then! We got wiser, the scales fell off our eyes. Or maybe not.... (I just recalled some months back my friend "lent" her boo 700k and it has not been mentioned since then. Did I add that they're no longer dating? Lol). Ok. So I guess to answer my own question, girls still do this!
But Come on! 2,000,000 Naira! And the guy makes it sound like 20k. Now what enrages me is the sense of entitlement this guy feels. He actually feels entitled! In his stunted mind he believes the lady is indebted to him. And all because of what, hear him; "Is it easy to be a handsome stud, is it easy to be very good in bed". In fact this alone leads to my conclusion that this guy, and most guys who COMFORTABLY live off their women are GIGOLOS!. So now if you're dating a fine guy who's great in the sack, get ready to pay for every orgasm. LMAO!!!
I should add that I don't see anything wrong in a lady pitching in. If you're in a committed relationship and you know that in good times that guy has had your back, he has been a provider, he has been a giver, then when times get tough it's your turn to do the same. In fact, times don't have to get tough, once in a while please open your palms to give.Lastly I would add, ladies, please steer clear of guys like this. Men are not that scarce!
