Money they say makes the world go round, whoever says money can’t solve your problems must not have had enough money to solve theirs, but still not everyone (or girl) is after money.
I am tired of listening to these young men talk about how every Nigerian girl just wants money in every relationship, like how much do these guys have? they are always insecure about money, but that’s no girls fault.
Let me take you down memory lane – I used to date a doctor during my NYSC days and when we started dating he would take me out, buy me things and dinners like roasted fish and drinks. To be honest, I did not pay it no mind at first that he did not buy me gifts or offer to give me money for the taxi ride home (TP). It did not matter to me because I loved him and not his money. In fact I cared less about his financial status.
As time moved on, I was almost certain that he really did not have the same mentality as most young men when it came to money and women. But at the back of my mind I maintained that notion that he probably was very good at hiding the flip side of his coin. Of course I did not care because that was not the reason I was with him in the first place. I felt a bit bad later because as a girl, let’s face it, every girl wants to be pampered and feel loved. Driven by that innate need or want and for a change I decided he come pick me up whenever he wanted us to go on a date.
Truth be told there were times when things would be hard for me and I needed money to keep going to my place of primary assignment and here came the dilemma, the million dollar question – Do I ask him for money for the taxi fare? Again that strange 1% of doubt at the back of my mind kept creeping in. I decided, I told him that I didn’t have money to transport myself to work. This was a roundabout indirect way of making my request in the hope that I did not come off at demanding.
To my utmost surprise he refused to help me.
Although I was pained, I did let it slide, only for me to get a text from him the next day calling me a gold digger, I ended it right there.
