Recently, Twitter went agog because of a tweet a guy made. The guy (who is about to get married to the love of his life) had made a tweet uploading his fiancée’s picture and a list of all the things she has done for him. A lot of Twitter users (95% women) were not having it.
Read the tweets below:
“I wanna share 10 things about this woman before we wed this weekend; 1. When I met her I had no place to stay. I was sleeping on a couch at a friend’s house and she knew. 2. I found a place later on, and she helped with paying my rent for months 3. She got me my first car ever.
- My laptop got damaged and I needed it so much at the time so I could work on my things in order to earn something. She gave me hers. 5. She covered most costs for our dates for a year. 6. She invested in our first two businesses together. And opted for me to run them full time
- I never met her mom until when I brought my family to meet hers 8. She celebrated and congratulated me for any penny I made at the time, even when it was as little as $10 9. She supported everything I was trying to do to make ends meet. Whether it earned us money or not.
- Though I’m very stable and all that now, I know she doesn’t really care about those things. She cares about me solely. I know she’d give me anything in the world if she had to, coz she has proved it over and over again Ladies and gentlemen, that’s the kinda woman I’m marrying.”
So far, these tweets have gained traction and many women have come out saying that a lady should never spend this much on a guy – except if he is your son.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to love and relationships. There is nothing wrong with helping loved ones financially till they can stand on their feet and make ends meet.
If you are nursing fears that your man will dump you when he eventually ‘makes it’, that is a sign you are in the wrong relationship – one without trust.
Ladies, how much do you think is too much to spend on your man?
