A Nigerian lady known as Linda has revealed that she was forced to cancel a fixed wedding after her fiancé used money meant for the preparations to gamble and lost it all.
She took to an anonymous messaging platform and opened up that they had been dating for eight years and she was looking forward to finally settling down with him but her man’s addiction to sports betting ruined their relationship.
According to the woman, she had known about his gambling habits but she thought he would change, however, she learnt a hard way that it was an addiction he could not outgrow.
Linda wrote: I am a lady, I was thinking he would change, he plays the betting they call virtual “baby”, the money meant for the wedding preparation he wasted it in that game, I had to cancel the wedding.”
Similarly, a Nigerian lady identified as Maryam Lasisi has revealed that she lost interest in a man he was interested in dating due to his reaction to losing out in sports betting.
She recounted when she called him on phone and he was crying uncontrollably because his ticket cut and she felt irritated.
According to Maryam, though she does not see anything wrong with a man showing emotions, she felt the way he cried was too much for a man.
She explained that her impression of him changed because of that incident, so she dumped the idea of going into a relationship with him.
Maryam wrote; ”I called him and he was crying because his bet cut. I’m all for men showing emotions but hearing “Omo I f**k up” while someone was crying his eyes out was very cringe. Omo, I couldn’t look at him the same way again abeg.”
