A young Nigerian lady has caused quite a stir on social media after revealing that she declined her boyfriend's marriage proposal.
Taking to her Twitter page, the lady with the handle @The_Nenye shared a picture of her fingers and wrote:
"I said No."
Many Nigerian men were not cool with her decision and quickly flooded the comment section of her post to share their thoughts.
As the young lady was being criticised on the social media platform, some women came to her rescue.
Below are some of the reactions:
"Good for you. You are a strong woman. Keep it up till you start fasting for 40 days just for any man to say hi to you."
"That's why am not asking. You can invest your whole life on someone and they dissapoint (sic) you right when you thought you are going to be together forever."
Why are the guys in the comments so bitter?
"The slightest idea that a lady doesn't think much of marriage & they over the edge howling. Could it be that that's where they get relevance from? "Next year you'll be at Shiloh", "you'll soon be 35" So? How's that your problem dumbo?"
"You go tey for your papa house soon you go become chairlady association of saying NO to proposal..."
Below are other reactions:
"I think what I find most irritating about some of you naija men is that you won't be still even in your mediocrity. Nigerian women have chosen desperation over dignity so you have license to be behaving anyhow and no self awareness to control your ego."
