How to spot a male leech

FOR a long time, we have had all kinds of songs sang about the detoother. The detoother for some reason has been branded female, that it is women who rip guys off of their money. Little has, however, been said about the male detoother.

FOR a long time, we have had all kinds of songs sang about the detoother. The detoother for some reason has been branded female, that it is women who rip guys off of their money. Little has, however, been said about the male detoother.

He is not a myth. A few weeks ago, Jenny met this gorgeous, attractive guy with muscles, height, class, you name it. A few days later, they exchanged numbers and he asked for a date. Great! Just what she wanted!

However, a day before the date, he beeps her. Yeah, beep; like call someone and hang up when it goes through! Anyhow, hunk beeps so much, so she calls him.

It turns out he wanted her to send him airtime. Apparently, he had run out of money and needed airtime. No problems; she sends him. A day later, he beeps again and it is airtime again. With a raised eyebrow, she sends him the airtime again. Then he asked to take her out. This seemed to redeem his image and she went out with him. He picks a fairly classy place and they agree to meet.

On getting there, he says he had forgotten his wallet at home and if she didn’t mind, could she pay for the meal. Of course, wanting to keep her pride and thank God for ATMs, she ended up paying a whole lot of money for the date and for the special hire cub he jumped into.

What she had was a classic leech. The type of guy who looks classy in the latest designs, all bought with women’s money. Now really, isn’t that the lowest, most despicable a man can get? Only worse than an insecure husband?

By nature, men are created to be providers. I don’t mean that women can’t pay the bill or buy a guy airtime. But if it is the guy’s habit to detooth a girl, that is something else.

Now, my sisters, you need to know whether this hunk you are fantasising about is only skin deep or a jaw-plucker:
  • He pays a lot of attention to his looks. Such men exist for the sole purpose of looking good and will have no pride when it comes to begging women for money to cater for their vanity
  • .
  • All he ever talks about is how much he spent on this shirt, shoe, cologne or pair of sunglasses. He knows nothing about what is happening around the world and all conversation revolves around him.

  • He does not have a job. He will say he is an artist, model, designer or professional photographer. He most likely did not sit for his A’level exams, so he has no higher education, but is well-groomed, so he can pass for anybody. But then he needs money to service his vanity. He knows that he is charming and that works for him with the women.

  • He hangs out with the rich. All he talks about are his rich friends or the moneyed girls he has dated. Hold tight to your purse because you might be his next victim.

  • He is not embarrassed to ask you to buy him airtime, a drink and even borrow your fancy shades. If you have a car, he will drive you and then borrow it every now and then (most likely to make a statement).

  • He says he keeps his money with his mother. (Don’t forget mama cannot be woken up at night to rescue the situation, so you’ll just have to pay this time and next and next.)

  • He beeps. Real men don’t beep. It’s an awful habit. He probably saves the last unit of his credit to beep all day and all night — all his life.
