In other news, 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.”
