So I was just casually lying down about to enter the dream world and this thought came to my head, am I a materialistic girl? I would like to believe I am not. I was just having a conversation with my cousin about a guy that likes me and she goes ” you should date him he is rich” obviously she is joking and she knows the type of person I am, but it posed a question in my mind that is being rich now so much of a factor for guys rather than it being a bonus.
As a girl myself, I know we have NEEDS!!!!!!!, trust me I know, but why depend so much on a guy, I’ll relate it to “don’t go asking a guy what you know your own father cannot afford” which is a very fair point. Why kill a guy with your list of wants and needs that you won’t dare ask your own father just so you can prove to be a “big girl”. For those that make being rich a first priority factor that is just really shallow, I’m just saying it as it is. Most of these guys, their so-called riches come from their parents, now let’s say something happened and they lost it all, would he be able to look after you without his parent’s resources or does he have his own income and is it legit.
We are all trying to make it in this world, I know I am, but I would not for the sake of money date a guy, my mother taught me better than that. I find it difficult at times to even accept money from guys well depending on how close we are and its usually on a mutual decision if he pays this time, I will next time. A friend asked me why do I work when he is ready to give me all I want, I just smiled and said I love working and there is no need. Work gives me my independence and I can spend my money however with no questions.
Girls should just stop lowering themselves for the riches of this world because, dear when it is gone it is gone. Rather try to build yourself to be somebody and make a name for yourself.
Society has seduced us by always wanting the next best thing or whatever is in vogue. Abeg live your life according to your wages and don’t be in competition with nobody but yourself.
Guys, please do not kill or overwork yourself because of a girl, especially one that isn’t even your wife yet. Do what your salary can handle. The right girl will understand.
