“I Want To End My Relationship With A Stingy Igbo Guy” – Girl, 22

Published

on

Managing finances is a sensitive topic for many couples. However, the ‘money question’ undeniably is a vital one, and eventually pops up at some point of every relationship. And sometimes, it plays the crucial role in deciding whether or not to stay with our partner.

couple-arguing-about-budgetOur reader Anabel Johnson sent us her story, asking for your advice.

I am a girl of 22 years dating a guy of 27. We have been dating for almost a year, and I love this guy. But the problem is, he is really stingy. Maybe because he’s an Igbo.

Because of this, I have started to develop hatred for him. He doesn’t want to leave me. I say hurtful things on purpose to make him angry with me and let me go. However, the more I try, the more he convinces him to stay.

It’s not like I’m interested in his money. He stays in Kurudu [Abuja], to reach his place costs about N250 in transportation payment. After I pay the required N250 to visit him, he will use a N200 note to slap me in my face. But this money cannot take me to my place, so I have to add N50, or sometimes I would trek to reach my house. When he did it for the first time, I thought he just wanted to know what kind of girl I was. But now I see that it is not true, and it is rather a habit or a character trait that he inherited from his forefathers.

I try to make him understand, but all I say falls on deaf ears. He is stingy even to himself, he won’t buy clothes, all he ever buys is drinks.

He told me one day that he would like to marry me, and that I should wait for him. How can I wait for such a man? Only if I want to die young from hunger. If I mistakenly marry him, would he not become the woman of the house?

The funniest part of it all is that he tells me to dress up nicely when I visit him, but wouldn’t give me any money to buy clothes!

Please, just give me some advice! I am just sick and tired of the relationship, I want to put an end to it before I get a heart attack.

    I WOULD SUGGEST YOU BOTH SHOULD SIT AND IRON THINGS OUT, YOU NEVER CAN SAY IF HE IS ON A PROJECT THAT DEMANDS MOST OF HIS INCOME.

    HOWEVER THE CASE MAY BE, YOU BOTH SHOULD AGREE EITHER ON WEEKLY OR MONTHLY ALLOWANCE AT-LEAST TO SHOW A SIGN OF COMMITMENT FROM HIM .

    He is very right in all he did bcos u will eventually leave him. My guy is actually afraid of bein duped by u. U knw wat i mean, polishn anoda man’s shoes. Wit my experience i just found out dat girls ar insatiable parasites, always lukin up on people 2 take care of dia financial needs as if men ar money printers. D funny part of it is dat girls easily forget gud dids n dumps u as soon as dey tink ur nt givn dem enough. Dis can make a man die untimely so its betta 4 u 2 leave him now atleast since he didn’t spend much on u he wil have notin to cry for. I wil do worse dan dat except we truely have marriage intrest! So if u luv him, promise him u wil marry him if he changes n watch d miracle!

    I was a mini bus conductor after my service without work, although having submitted my cvs to many companies without a call from them, one day my girl woke up and told me that she is quitting the relationship, which she did, because i no longer flex with her like school days. Calling it being stingy, she left. Only for me to meet with a lady in our bus, who happened to be a messiah for me, rented a flat for me, she did everything, even get me a job in one of our biggest bank. Now both of us have married with twin boys living happily. Sometime i believe that true love never say good bye nomatter how it hurt.. Good luck if that’s your final decisions. … ……… ( princess Rachel i love you! You are my life and happiness)

Relaxation Of CBD In NFL – An Insight

Published

on

Why You Should Buy YouTube Views Cheap

There has been a lot of buzz around CBD in recent years, especially in the health and wellness industry.
Many sports associations and players around the world have also recognized CBD as a pro sports
product.

However, one of the most coveted associations- the National Football League, more popularly known as
the NBD had been quite strict in its ban of cannabis related products, including CBD. But in recent times,
there seems to be some good news in store both for eh players and every CBD shop as the association is
considering lifting the blanket ban and allowing players to use CBD, which has become popular for its
medical properties.

What Is CBD?

Before we proceed to understand the decision of the NFL, it is important to understand what CBD is and
how it is different from the other cannabis product. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the primary chemicals
found in the cannabis plant, the other being THC. However, contrary to common beliefs, CBD is not
psychoactive in nature. It does not cause the user to feel ‘high.’ This is because high quality CBD does
not contain even trace amounts of THC, which is responsible for these reactions.

In fact, many recent studies indicate that CBD is an excellent medicine to cure several physical and
mental conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, and depression.

Why Do Sportspersons Recommend CBD Use?

If you are into sports and athletics, avoiding injuries is almost impossible. While painkillers may be
helpful in managing the pain, they have numerous side effects on the other organs of the body. That is
why many players and athletes are now in favor of using CBD to manage their pains and injuries.

Sourced from organically grown hemp, CBD helps in alleviating the pain without injuring any other
organs of the body. It is no wonder that players are in favor of using CBD in place of the synthetic drugs
that are available in the market.

CBD For Sleep

For your body to perform its best, it is important for it to be well-rested and rejuvenated. This can only
happen through sound sleep. For many players, who suffer from muscle cramps and injuries, getting
proper sleep becomes a challenge. CBD can be very helpful in those circumstances as well. By soothing
the nerves, CBD helps the body to fall asleep faster and also the quality sleep that it needs.

Good sleep can also help the body in replenishing its worn and torn tissues faster.

The Changes Anticipated In NFL

The NFL, which has one of the strictest policies regarding drug testing, is now considering changing its
policies, especially the ones that are related to CBD. The players who test positive for cannabis will not
be directly suspended from the team. Rather a fine will be imposed on them as per the number of times
that they test positive.

The threshold for testing has also been changed as the players now will only be tested during the first
two weeks of the training camp, in place of the April- August testing policy that was followed earlier.

These progressive changes seem to be a direct result of the changed perception that most people have
regarding CBD today.

It is also worthy to note here that CBD is legal in all the American states, with minor restrictions on the
amount and the concentration of the product. Players are the happiest with this new move as they are
of the opinion that CBD works much better and is far less addictive than the painkillers that are given on
prescription. Even the sports associations around the world are also likely to reconsider their policy on
CBD after this change.
