‘It’s Wrong For Ladies To Ask Guys For Money’ — Joro Olumofin
Popular Nigerian relationship therapist, Joro Olumofin took to social media to state his disapproval for ladies who are fond of asking guys for money.
The controversial love doctor stated that it would have been better if many of these ladies request for items that would change their lives, but rather they ask for items like hair, iPhones and Makeup kit and other things that would add nothing meaningful to them.
It’s wrong for ladies to ask guys for money – Joro Olumofin
Read his full post:
I don’t approve of Ladies asking Guys for money. I believe men and women are equal, feminists even advocate equality between sexes but I’m very disappointed at the requests a lot of ladies make on their Boyfriends or Suitors. Most ladies make requests of items that won’t change their status quo or current state permanently.
For example (1) Hair (2) Iphone (3) Dubai Ticket (4) Makeup kit (5) N50,000 / $200 (6) Hair Net (7) Underwear
These items won’t change your life or make you reach your Self Actualized State.
Please ladies from now on, if you’re the TYPE to ask guys for Things.
Please ask for (1)Land (2) 500k Loan (3) Employment (4) School Fees
(5) Business Capital or Partnership
Ask with a purpose if you’re going to ask for anything at all, don’t ask to remain the same, ask to change.
