I have parents that provide me
With all my needs & wants
And even with my student budget I
Still manage to get my hair done,
Nails done,buy shoes,cloths,
Go to the movies/events (And yes,I pay myself).
Now,When a guy comes along and we decide
To get together – Its for the love.
However,I do expect you take me out
And when you do – There is nothing wrong
With fish&chips but steers/spur would do.
I wanna order & you take care of the bill
If its a bit too much,Ill cover whats left,
If you say we should go to the movies,
I expect you to pay & get the snacks.
If we wanna go to an event
Ands its a bit costly ..
It would be fair that you cover
The tickets and I’ll cover the food/drinks.
Now,If I date a guy who is 3/4/5 years
Older then I am and he has “made it”
Or is successful to an extent
With a car,house,no kids etc.
And I love him …
Don’t bad mouth me.
My parents did not spend R50 000
Raising me up,
R200 000 on my education
Raised me to be beautiful
For me to be with an
Yes,We can argue that I should be with him
For love – Nothing but love
But love will not do my hair,
Love will not buy his sneakers,
Love will not give our children a future,
Love pays no bills.
Don’t get me wrong,
It’s not about the materialistic things
But I am not about to walk into
Poverty with my eyes wide open
All in the name of love.
If poverty is what love is about
Then I don’t want it !!
Ps:I said nothing nothing about sex.
