- A lady has caused a debate on social media after saying she paid R579 for transport fare to go on a date with a man without getting any financial assistance from him
- According to the woman, the guy should have compensated her with some cash because he asked for the date
- Some social media users agreed with her while others were of the opinion that the lady should not complain about paying her own bills
A woman identified by the Twitter handle @miss_ezeani has lamented the ill-treatment that a man gave her on their first date.
The young lady said the man invited her for a date to meet at a specific venue which was far from her home, adding that transportation to and from the venue cost over R500.
She said after all said and done, the man never bothered to pay for her transportation.
In her words:
"R250 Uber to transport myself to a date to see this person. Knowing YOU ASKED TO SEE ME! And I played it cool because “independent woman”. Nah me still pay R250 transport myself back. Over R500 and you didn’t think to help out in any way, knowing you asked for this date."

"Grown adult expecting someone to pay their taxi fare because she accepted to go on a date."
"Transport oooo, this aunty is complaining. Same person that will want to collect bone straight in few weeks."
"You were not forced to go on the date. Pay your bills if and when you decide to mingle with a man or go on a date with him. If you can’t afford the transport fare, ask him to meet you at a restaurant near you where you could walk to. That’s what grown-ups do though."
