A Nigerian lady caused a row on Twitter when she disclosed that she dumped her boyfriend to get engaged to another man within the space of three weeks.
The woman with the handle @zumamalicious, said she was justified to have walked away from the relationship because her boyfriend did not make his intentions clear. She celebrated that the engagement led to marriage three months later
“Went home for a 3weeks leave, came back engaged and got married 3 months later. I mean surprise weddings do happen when intentions are not clearly defined. The bf was shocked like we were good. We were good but there is no clear offer here,” she stated.
The lady based her actions on the argument that the mere fact that she and her boyfriend were wearing matching asoebi did not imply they were planning to get married.
“When you care about someone, state your intentions clearly and make a clear offer so you can both know what you are working towards,” the lady pointed out.
However, her explanation did not go well with some Nigerians who accused her of being cold-hearted.
Oyinkansola Alabi with the handle, @EmotionsDoctor, asked the lady how she would have felt if the roles were reversed.
“Imagine if he travelled, got engaged in 3weeks and got married in 3 months? And when you asked he said you both were good but he wasn’t sure if you were ready for marriage.
That action you are trying to explain away is unkind. He deserved to know you were moving on. Men are HUMAN,” Alabi noted.
Another concerned citizen with the handle, @Drmuzoic, accused the lady of being unfaithful
“There is no way you can defend this. If he wasn’t serious, why not inform him that there is someone that is proposing marriage?
“And no way in hell you met that guy in that 3 weeks and he proposed. It shows you too wasn’t serious in the other relationship and was stepping out,” the user noted.
