“The irony of relationship, if you are not meant to marry each other, you guys can date for 10 years and he will marry someone else in 10 days,” tweeted a social media user.
Another wished her well and hoped that she wouldn’t give up on love. “Men know where their heart belongs, it’s not even about you... It has nothing to do with you!! I just hope you find the courage to move on and live your life to the fullest, the right man will come.”
Others advised her to stop the wedding: “Sorry for that. You can move on or attend the wedding. When the pastor says, Who doesn’t want them to get married, just stand up and raise your hand? If not, move on. He was never for you,” another one said.
The thread continued with guys giving ladies unsolicited advice on how to navigate dating if they want to get married.
“Note to ladies: when the dating starts, ask the guy if we are dating to marry or as boyfriend and girlfriend only? If the answer is the former, then ask ’what’s your timeline for the wedding? if the answer is vague or more than 24 months. Meeeeuuuve or Know that you’re on a luck thing!” the user advised
Very true. A guy who wants to marry you makes his intentions known from the start. You may not even need to ask.— African Flamingo (@3rdWave8) October 13, 2021
Some feel like love is always different and when you meet the right one, you can connect immediately. “Not really. People who they want to be in life and some people come into people’s lives and fit in immediately. Almost like cracking that wi-fi password immediately after trying to connect,” tweeted another user.
...& the signs must have been there all along, but sometimes we ignore the truth for short-term pleasure & long-term pain...🤔 pic.twitter.com/gRudKUZsOy— SeaPoint OnPoint (@SeapointO) October 13, 2021
