Briefly.co.za recently shared the story of a man who was left heartbroken after a woman he sponsored through school for four years left him for another man.
His story quickly blew up on social media.
Here's what Mzansi had to say about it.
While some online found the story funny, many expressed sympathy for the man. Thuli Lungelwa, for one, said that "she was taking advantage of his kindness, sorry brother".
Another, MaKamogelo Monyamane, posted, "Give that man my number. I'm offering a free shoulder to cry on."
Some even took issue with the woman, with one person writing, "This lady must pay back the loan." Another user, Patrick Mkhatshwa, went so far as to encourage legal action, writing, "Brother, you can open a fraud case against her and demand your money back."
Others, however, said that the woman did not owe the man anything. For example, one user wrote that, "Things done with love have no expectations or payback."
Dumisani Nkabinde agreed, saying, "That was his act of kindness, he was not forced to do it."
All-in-all, the comments showed that most people thought both the man and the woman were somewhat in the wrong.
