Expressing her own dissatisfaction with the said tweets, the lady identified as Wendy Osuji added that what ladies want must not make sense to men because it is a choice.

She wrote:

 I’ve seen tweets from guys saying they can’t date a girl that’s not financially stable.

I’m a student. But never, like never have I felt attacked by such tweets.

What’s actually up with some guys on Twitter? What I want must not make sense to you. It’s a choice boo.


In reaction to Wendy’s post, Leo argued that guys should also be allowed to have their own preferences when it comes to dating just like women also have. According to him, dating someone without adequate finances in a poverty-stricken country like Nigeria is a burden.

In his own words;

Guys should have their own preferences just as women have theirs. Dating someone that’s not working or doesn’t have adequate allowance is a burden. Nigeria, the poverty capital of the world, if a young man trying to come up refuses that burden, I think it’s a smart choice.
