A Twitter user with the handle @ereluchocolate has gotten some Nigerians talking on the micro-blogging site after she said it is unnecessary to have a boyfriend when one is not getting married soon.
In her words:
“Boyfriend is very unnecessary if you’re not getting married soon and dating is an extremely unnecessary sport that no one should be pressured into.”
See her tweet below:

Some Nigerians while reacting to the comments have expressed divergent views.
Monotony and boredom lol
Its not totally unnecessary tho
If y’all know what you really want
It teaches you a lot.. It might be unnecessary but it is imperative
Just my opinion anyway

My exact thought too. I feel you shouldn’t commit until you’re ready for marriage. Monotony and boredom.

For me oh relationships mean alot more

She doesn’t understand that it’s a learning process as well…all some ladies think of is heartbreaks and guys wants sex

Well it’s not totally unnecessary. Dating teaches you alot about life, human behaviour, interaction etc. With enough experience from dating you could then choose a suitable partner

My man platonic friendship also teaches you all that. You’ll be surprised how many people have read this post and realised she’s actually right.

You learn wrong. Whether or not you’re getting married soon, dating is very necessary. Its how you prepare for marriage. It teaches you, thru both good and bad times.

You absolutely right, dating is unnecessary if marriage is not in sight. Platonic/friendship relationship can teach you all you need to know about someone

Many people do not know that the essence of a relationship is MARRIAGE!

😂 it’s the title of a book. Read it back then when I was under pressure to get into it. Made me realize it isn’t worth it after all.

Why charge a phone if you don’t want to use it…why date if you don’t want to marry
