True Life Story: My Experience Dating a Broke Man

An unnamed Nigerian lady has shared the major demerits of dating a poor man, just like most ladies have shown apathy to struggling men in recent times.

Read the story of the lady in question:
I just don’t know why broke guys want to have a girlfriend too, and before you start complaining let me quickly tell you I’m actually dating one.
Guys jump into conclusion that girls don’t want to date a broke guy simply because he has nothing to offer financially, but this is not true in all cases, a girl that loves you sees you in her future like her husband. She wants the best for you because she sees you in her future.
A girl can date a broke guy but no girl will intentionally marry a broke man. I love my broke boyfriend because firstly I’m not dating him for financial reasons, and secondly because I see a bright future in him. But one thing remains: I can’t marry him if he continues being broke.

I have stopped condemning girls that don’t settle for less. There are so many disadvantages of dating a broke guy namely:

(1) Talk about a boring relationship:
when your female friends are going places with their rich boyfriend, you are just there lying on his bed staring at each other’s faces in his heated room.

(2) Your friends will not respect him:
By the time your female friends get to know about his brokeness the respect will just not be there anymore. Girls love each other and they want the best for each other.

(3) He will always disgrace you:
Yes! This is most annoying. A little amount of money will cause fight between you two. Imagine: asking your broke boyfriend to at least present himself in a wealthy way to impress your female friends, by buying provision or something for them, will make him tear you apart.

(4) He demands too much respect:
This is funny, even rich guys that can afford to buy expensive things for their woman don’t demand as much respect as he does. I guess this is done so you won’t disregard him.

(5) He will naturally look stingy to you:
Imagine asking your broke boyfriend to help you with N500 when he himself already has a plan for the only N1, 000 left with him. This is ridiculous because by the time he decides to impress you with N2, 000 you won’t just be feeling him anymore.

This is just a few of what I can remember now. Guys should note that their being financially okay brings a kind of happiness to their girlfriends/ fiancees not only because of what they will enjoy from you, but because they see their dream being fulfilled through you: you live in the best house, drive the best car and all; tell me if your partner won’t be proud to show you off.

I love my baby very much but as little as N100 can cause a misunderstanding between us. God knows the kind of joy that will fill my heart the day he will be financially okay.
“It takes a real woman to date a broke guy and help him fulfill his dream.”

All this is written from the sadness of my heart. I guess some guys don’t understand me, I am only asking the guys to be rich for their own good, not because of a leech girlfriend/fiancee. Nigerian men are quick to insult any girl that comes here to talk about money in a relationship. I am not after my boyfriend’s money or anything, his happiness is mine also and I know he will be happy by the time he is financially okay to cater for all his own needs and beyond.

If you become financially successful it is your name that will be known not your wife’s name talk less of a girlfriend. That is why I use Dangote and Adenuga as examples: how often do you guys hear of Mrs Dangote or Mrs Adenuga? Is it as often as both men? NO! And in case the woman is as successful as the likes of Omotola Jalade
