Relationship and mental expert Blessing Okoro Nkiruka has advised men to stop dating or thinking about marrying hungry women.
According to her, such characters come into the relationship or marriage to eat.
Okoro underpinned that there are so many hungry women out there looking for men with means to feed them under the disguise of relationships.
"When you date a hungry woman, she will never be loyal to you. Anywhere she sees food, that is where her loyalty lies."
She added that since their reason for staying was the food, such characters would not hold on longer if things go south. In other words, their loyalty dies the moment the food stops.
In her words:
"Stop dating women who cannot fast at every slightest opportunity. You cannot come into somebody's life only to be eating, eating, eating."
Although Okoro alluded to food and eating, she was talking about women who only want to be given a good life on a silver platter but hardly participate or support the partner in wealth creation.
Okoro advised men to date women ready to come into their lives and assist in income generation, what she called planting.
"Men, know the kind of women you want to help and the kind of women you want to love. Some women come into your life for help. Help them and go. Stop loving everybody that you help."
The sentiments divided netizens along gender lines, with the men applauding her thinking while women bashed her for the remarks.
Below are some of the reactions:
In other news, relationship coach Benjamin Zulu has advised men to avoid dating women who are younger than 25 years old.
Zulu said women younger than 25 are not yet mature and are in the exploration stage of their lives and as such, they cannot commit to a serious romantic relationship.
Speaking on NTV's Wicked Edition, the psychotherapist said dating such women brings chaos and mayhem because their brains are yet to mature and stabilise enough to accommodate a serious affair.
