I am 28 years old and currently doing my own business. I’ve worked in the corporate organization before but two years ago, I decided to start my own drop shipping business which is doing well than I expected.
Not that I can’t rent a place of my own, but it doesn’t make economic sense when my parent own a five bedroom house in a prime area in Accra and I also happen to be their only child. Why rent a place and pay so much when I can invest that money into my business and grow it?
The last two women I dated left me because I still continue to live with my parent? One called me “Mummy’s Boy” only because I wanted to be home early before midnight to avoid being scolded by my parent.
My immediate ex asked if we were going to continue living in my parent’s house after marriage and I answered: “If by that time business is good and there’s money, why should we?”
When she left me and I went to beg her, she used that answer as a reason she doesn’t see any future between us. I decided to let the women I approach know I live with my parent before I propose.
I have met two women who were very much into me but the day they visited and realized I live with my parent, their attitude towards me changed.
Does it mean I don’t deserve to be in a relationship just because I live with my parent?
