Which Is Which: Love OR Money, are Ugandan Ladies Sucking Men Dry?
Whoever published the article titled “HUSBANDS WILL BE SCARCE BY 2023” lit up an ever blazing furnace in Kampala without giving men an idea of how to put it off. In the name of love, millennial and Gen Z are operating one serious, Dopamine(hormone for satisfaction) fuelled racket. In quick math, a month of dating in Uganda costs the average couple at least a million shillings. That tally includes those random 30ks, which adds up to more than 300 thousand, and some nights out, then “fancy dates” which wallop the wooing wallet to the tune of nearly 500 thousand.
Money lubricates the wheels of love and it can also be one of the biggest spanners tightening or loosing ones relationship. In one of Davido’s songs which many Kampala girls reference to he sings “when money is there love is sweeter”. “Figuring out whether you’re financially compatible is important because, ultimately, you’ll be sharing your finances one day.” Whether you’re locked in a long term or serially single and mingling, here’s how to gracefully manage some of those uncomfortable money moments on the dating scene without breaking the bank or your heart.
Sweeping a girl off her feet in this current time may wrongly be related to how much one is willing to spend on a potential suitor. Depending on where you meet. If it’s in a bar for instance the dirtier the table the higher the chance to get someone’s attention. For the cooperates the subject of who should pick up the tab on the first date is often the starting line. It can get even trickier and more expensive when it comes to online meetups, the money spent on data is alarming and virtual dates like “let me buy you ka breakfast”. Before one notices 50 swiiiiiii . Despite that, it’s only “respectful and gentlemanly” for a man to pay some bills although a woman should always offer, subtly, perhaps by turning down some things. However If you see potential, let him pay.
