The tables are turned, I will declare it herein that it should be a sin for a guy to date a broke girl. Did you read right? Yes, you did, do not date a broke chick! It has always been the mantra for girls, but it is becoming obvious that it works either way. A broke girl is as dangerous as a broke guy.
It is more about security, comfort and stability when you decide to shun broke chicks and date nancially stable women. No, men are rarely interested in what the woman has, but we will definitely be concerned about what she does not have. If she is broke, it means that it is you who is going to take care of her salon bills, which is not bad because a man should provide, but it becomes a regular obligation.
When you are getting a girlfriend, you do not get a leech. You get one who can chip in. A girl, who pays the transport, sometimes, pays for dinner, buys you presents and does not beep you. But when you decide to go for a woman simply because she is beautiful, has a sizeable behind and dresses well, you will bore big holes in your pockets. It is important that a couple are team players. As a striker, you will not score any goal if the defender keeps shooting the ball in the opposite direction.
You know what I am talking about. A chick that takes a boda boda from Bwaise to your place in Kireka and wants you to pay the bill. I am talking about the girl who says buy me this, buy me that, every time you pass a restaurant or a store. Broke women are ambitious social climbers, whose lack of money is not only re ected in her never ending needs, but also in esteem issues.
A broke girl is the one that behaves like a tourist when you take her to an A-list restaurant, concert or event. She is a bad accessory for your image. With a nancially–stable girl, you need not to worry about how she is going to be dressed when you are going out. Neither do you need to worry about her ordering down the whole restaurant since most likely; she will have the backing to help you split the bill. You will even never get “send me mobile money” texts that are perpetual when you date a broke girl.
Instead, you spending on her will be a relished pleasure and you will never feel the pinch of it. If women say they do not want to date broke men, well, we men can also boycott broke girls.
Instead of going on about men’s obvious responsibilities to their women AGAIN, I would rather be checking my Facebook news feed or writing my blog post because that is more interesting.
However, that will not get me a pay cheque. A girl needs a man that believes in her. How stupid! I get a headache just trying to gure out how some men’s trains of thought work!
For starters, if you are a man who hates providing for and taking care of your woman who has no money, your hormones are messed up, closeted and otherwise.
So your opinion is clearly not objective or logical. Secondly, a goal-oriented woman should be what any sensible man wants. Whatever she has in her bank account or wallet should not matter to any level-headed man! Her ambition and drive should. Anyone with half a brain knows that!
Conceivably, what you mean by “never date a broke girl” is “Hey, I am a lazy waste-of human- organs who doesn’t have a lot to offer and that’s what I will always be”. Ladies, who wants a man who is not as driven and ambitious as any human being is supposed to be? Erm, I don’t see any hands up! Do not pretend that women are using up all your money, yet in reality, you have a life-long dysfunctional relationship with your wallet.
It’s getting old and annoying. You know how banks and creditors operate: healthy financial standing is a positive indicator of creditworthiness. And guess what? Good money habits like sharing whatever you have with your girlfriend are also a good indicator of a dude’s date-worthiness. Even if she gets as much as you do or much more, there are some unhealthy money habits that you absolutely should not indulge in. Unless, of course, you want your boyfriend privileges to be suspended!
Who takes care of the sh500 taxi fare or who buys who dinner isn’t a factor here and neither is materialism. It’s more concrete than that: It’s how you prove your ability to take care of your family in future. At least that’s my take on it. Well, some of the women you hook up with also might just be gold-diggers; I cannot really speak for them because I am way better than that.
However, give it a rest you selfish men. Or when you get your meagre salary, go to your favourite kafunda, sit quietly in the corner surround yourself with cheap beers and gulp down frothy sips and stay soundless!
Who needs a broke girl?
