A woman recently shared her struggle of allocating RM500 every month to her boyfriend due to the fear of her boyfriend leaving her.
“I earn RM2,000, and I give my boyfriend RM500 because I’m afraid he will leave me if I don’t. I spend RM500 on my car, RM200 on rent, and another RM400 on a personal loan that my boyfriend took out in my name,” she said.
Gives her mother RM50 a month
She also claimed that whenever they dined out, she had to cover their expenses.
“I can only afford to give my mother RM50. Thankfully, she understands my financial situation.
The rest of my income goes towards our meals, not to mention the additional expenses during our dates. Life is tough these days,” she lamented in a social media post on TikTok, which was later reshared on Twitter.
Sparks controversies online
The post, which was posted on TikTok and subsequently reposted on Twitter, has since garnered over 6k likes and 2.2k retweets at press time.
“Sister.. this is not a boyfriend. You are raising a kid.”
Another concerned netizen also suggested that she exchange the money given to her boyfriend with the amount given to her parents to test whether her boyfriend really loves her.
One also suggested her to not spend money on ‘useless’ men.
