My Man is a Truck Driver


I’m 28 years old, my parents died when I was 14 years old and I had to drop out of school because no one could help me to pay my fees. I met a guy when I was 17 years old and he sent me back to school. He was not just a friend but my boyfriend who sold fruits on the streets so that he could pay my school fees. He later got a job as a truck driver and sent me to university. I’m now working as a lawyer but my man is still doing the same truck work.

My problem is that I feel I can’t continue with this relationship because this guy is not the type of a man I would like to marry! He’s helped me to become who I am now but how best can I tell him that he is not my type without hurting his feelings? I’m grateful he sent me to school but I can’t be in a relationship with him anymore! I want somebody in my own class not a truck driver! Please Mano fans, advice me on what to do!

  1. Herrrr! He made you who you are today so why don’t you also turn him into your type of man.. WOMAN!!!! This the main reason guys find it hard to love oo. May Allah help us all.
    This is actually heart breaking.. Sister why..!?

  2. Have you ever loved this guy?
    Did you two agree that he was helping you because of helping sake or because he loves you? You should have asked him all this…. Don’t be the reason for someone’s tears
    He allowed himself to be used by God to help bring you up…. Help him climb up too
    Don’t forget God can take everything from you for trying to outsmart Him and this guy…… Is a truck driver a good – for – nothing?

  3. Try and leave that man who made you what you are and see how your end will be.He toiled to make you but no more your class. You made me laugh my force.Why are some ladies like that?

  4. Now I see the reason why my grand mom would say some people are educated illiterate…sold fruits and driving trucks to see you through and now you feel your advantage of education over him is th gap for not marrying him….poor soul in wisdom…you will definitely meet your KARMA..GO ON

  5. You are not obligated to marry him because he sent you to school. However, he suffered to do all these through his menial jobs and you never complained. Trust me, this is a man for you. Such men are hard to come by. Why won’t you establish him into a business, build him up to match up with your so called class? You’ll come back here and share a bitter story if you deliberately dismantle his heart.
