Relationship coach, Joro Olumofin, has advised ladies to get a substitute boyfriend this year.
He gave the advice recently on Instagram, where he used the term 'contingency boyfriend' to describe the so-called substitute.
The relationship expert further advised ladies to have a platonic friend, someone who fits into their definition of a 'husband material', someone they see themselves marrying, even while in a relationship.
According to him, this will help ladies avoid depression and the rebound/waiting syndrome. He also noted that this is also what men do. By following his advice, he insisted, ladies are thinking like men.
Read what he wrote below:
“Ladies, 2020 is here. Do you have a Backup BF? Start recruiting backup BF today. With the level of heartbreak and depression amongst ladies who just got out of relationships, I believe it’s time for ladies to have a “CONTINGENCY BOYFRIEND” ; a backup boyfriend. Who is a contingency boyfriend? A contingency boyfriend is a guy who fits all your criteria of a husband material but is your platonic friend ( no sex involved).
“You talk to him often, you hang out with him and involve him in your daily activities, he’s aware of your boyfriend. A lot of ladies are facing emotional hardships in their breakup and being rebounded by at least 5 Guys risking high body counts till they find another boyfriend.
“I strongly suggest that every lady in a relationship should have a backup boyfriend who she can marry 6 months after her breakup in other (order) to avoid Depression and the rebound/waiting syndrome. #ThinkLikeAMan 90% of men have Contingency Girlfriends. That’s why after a breakup man get married 3 months later.”
