A Nigerian lady has taken to Twitter to expressed disgust at how social media made her believe her boyfriend must buy her gifts.
According to her, she got gifts from her ex-boyfriend but the relationship never gave her peace of mind.
Read what happened with her new boyfriend below.
“My ex showered me with gifts & expensive dates. He also cheated a lot & emotionally abused me. My current doesn’t buy me anything & it used to kill me in the beginning until I realized that he gives me peace of mind, worships the ground I walk on & supports my dreams.
I hate that social media made me believe that if a man loved me, he had to buy me stuff. Took me years to unlearn that expectation and to understand that everyone has their own love language.
I find that “not having it all” is only a prblm if we make it 1. I thought a relationship was supposed to give me evrything. But some things you get from friendships/fam, other things from work & some things you give urself. A partner doesn’t necessarily have to play every role”.
