"When a woman you date tells you she needs money, listen calmly without interrupting, then respond thus, ‘I am sorry, but it seems you mistake me for your father’."

Men shouldn't be pressured
Omokri said men shouldn't allow themselves to be pressured into financing women they are in a relationship with, adding that it is not wise.
"Don’t be pressured into financing a woman you are romancing. It is nice. It is not wise. Even if she leaves you, what have you lost?"
You won't be lonely
The bestseller author said a man shouldn't think he will be lonely if his girlfriend walks out of the relationship.
In his words:
"Don’t think that you will be lonely if she leaves you. Loneliness is like having no money. Bad friends are like debt. It is better to have no money, than be in debt. And it is better to have no friends than to have bad ones. Loneliness can’t kill. But a bad girlfriend can. Instead of bad friends, learn to enjoy your company."
Tony Classic said:
"This is exactly my relationship status now. Although we love each other but we know our limits, let your father train you, when I come for your hand in marriage he won't remove all those money I spent while dating you. So let him do the job of a father and not the other way round... If you no gree I mufon with my small life. No hard feelings."
Emma Obasi Okpekwu commented:
"Oga Reno Omokri, this one that you're always hitting the liability women left, right, back, front and center with the bitter truth. Make them no go do meeting for your head oo."
