A Nigerian man simply known as Michael has recounted how he broke up with a girl because she disapproved of his generousity towards his friends.
According to him, it happened shortly after his NYSC programme, and they were all unemployed at the time but he was lucky enough to be getting 200 dollars monthly from his brother.
Michael revealed that whenever he and his friends were going out, he would carry his girlfriend along, and he often sorted the bills because others did not have money.
He was also in the habit of giving his friends some money and leaving tips for waiters at eateries and relaxation spots, but his girlfriend who was also getting money from him was not comfortable with his act of giving his buddies money.
She questioned him about it and wanted him to stop, however, rather than do that, he decided to end their relationship.
In his words; ” I remember dating one lady immediately after NYSC, no work yet but I was balling on 200dollars monthly from my elder brother, which place I no dey catch my fun. There are times we go to this event centre where there are bars, swimming pool to chill with my gees from uni days.
We were all jobless that time and I seem to be richer financially than them. I use to hold bae along every time cos she was not also working. Each time I leave the change with either the waiter guy or give my guys money, she will just squeeze face like baboon.
I will just carry face wetin be my own “you no keep money for hand wey I use do giveaway. It was going on and on till one day that she couldn’t hold it again and said” what’s my problem, must I give my friends money, can’t they go and work “I now reminded her that she is also jobless, she said they will be dependent on me and won’t be serious with their lives. That’s when I told her that no one can do same favor forever, they also trying their best but nothing is coming forth due to d situation of tins.
She left angrily and was expecting I call her back. She didn’t know it was “o da bo oo” like that, you want to control who I give money to but you can demand every time. when my guys stop seeing her and asked me “how about that your nice gf” for my mind I was like she has condemned you guys so badly, she doesn’t even want anyone around me.
If you overlook such kinda behavior, you will just marry the lady that will chase friends and family away. That’s a redflag that shouldn’t be overlooked by guys. This same money that when you leave the world you won’t take it along.. Hian”
