Prof Okoe Amartey, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA), has advised first-year female students to approach romantic advances from their male counterparts with a discerning eye.

The Vice-Chancellor of UPSA warned against falling for what he characterised as a widespread and insincere approach employed by male students when expressing romantic interest.

Prof Amartey highlighted the potential emotional repercussions of being swept away by what he believes to be deceptive declarations of affection.

"When they (male students) come to you with all the flowery proposals, just know that it is a "format". They say same to other ladies. Do not fall for it. Trust me, it will end in tears."

This advice is a proactive measure to protect female students from potential heartbreak and disappointment.

Prof Amartey's words carry weight as he draws on his experience in the academic world to shed light on what he perceives as a recurring pattern in the interactions between male and female students.

By urging female students not to be swayed by what may appear to be genuine expressions of romantic interest, the Vice-Chancellor aims to empower them with the knowledge to navigate the complex social dynamics of university life.
