Young lady confused as boyfriend asks her to forgo scholarship in Canada for him
A Nigerian lady is in a dilemma over the challenge of choosing between love and an academic opportunity that could open doors for her.
She bagged a fully funded scholarship to do her Masters programme in Canada but the issue is her boyfriend, who wants her to forgo the offer.
The 22-year-old lady said he asked her to not travel abroad else it would lead to the end of their relationship.
She wants to know if it is possible to defer the scholarship till next year because she does not want to lose her boyfriend.
The young lady sent a message to a social media adviser who then posted it on Twitter to solicit advise.
The post reads; You won’t believe what this girl’s boyfriend asked her to do! Just when she thought life was going perfectly – a scholarship abroad, opportunities of a lifetime – love knocked on her door.
Now, imagine having your dreams within reach, only to have someone you love ask you to give it all up. This is the heart-wrenching story of a girl faced with a tough decision: leave for a scholarship abroad or stay back in Nigeria for love?
She got a fully-funded scholarship to pursue her Masters in Canada. She was so excited and discussed it with her boyfriend who suddenly went cold. She was worried and pushed to find out what was wrong.
In her words, he said, “I should either stay back in Nigeria, build our future together in Nigeria and stick together or they end the relationship and she can proceed to Canada.”
She was confused. Why make me choose, she asked him. He said… “our plans to be together will not be feasible if you relocate abroad.”
I was curious to know why she was considering it in the first place and I quickly asked her how old she was. She said 22 years!!! Here was my response to her ????????
I finally called her and we spoke at length & hopefully, she takes my advice and JAPA!!!
My 2 cents: A man that loves you would not stop you from achieving your goals. He would support you and not kill that dream. A big RED FLAG!!!
What are your thoughts about this? If you were to be in her shoes, will you stay back in Nigeria to save your relationship or will you break up and relocate abroad?
In the same vein, if you were married and your husband requests the same of you, what will you do?
