Facebook user, Lebohang Mofokeng, shared a post where she expressed her fear of dating accomplished men.
She argues that she’d have little to offer such a man on the basis of her being a student and he may already have a house, car and successful career.
Mofokeng poses the question, “What am I bringing to the relationship except for my body?”
Her argument is rounded off by saying that her preference is to be with a man who is on her level so that they can build and grow together.

Briefly.co.za noted that this post was shared across multiple social media platforms, including Twitter.
Twitter user, @Troniiq_Sithole, shared the post on his Twitter feed and many South Africans commented with some in favour and some opposing the argument.
Briefly.co.za was able to source Mofokeng’s original post and noted that it generated 1 000 comments.
As was the case with the debate on Twitter, many women completely disagreed with Mofokeng’s logic when commenting on her post.
Masana Nwa-Mhlengwe said, “If you continue thinking like that, you'll date your student and he'll dump you when he starts working.”
Khaya Frans Lala added: “Sometimes not everything is about moolah so if a person does love you whether they poor or rich and they want to love they will love.”
Prominent C. Jude supported Mofokeng’s view when he said: “I wish people could see your post and reason about it. You are blessed.”
