‘I want to dump my security guard boyfriend who paid for my tuition, he is not my type’


Dear Aunty Lisa

I am a 24 year old girl. My parents died when I was 10 yrs and so I dropped out of school because no-one could afford enough money to pay my fees. I then met this guy when i was 15 and he struggled to send me back to school. He was a vendor selling fruits in Harare CBD just to pay my fees.

He then got a job as a security guard and continue to send me to school even to the university, of which I am eternally grateful to him for… indeed there are angels made by God to help the needy in times of trouble.

My problem is that I feel I can’t continue with this relationship because he is not my type, I am not the girl that I used to be when he first saw me, dont get it wrong, I am honestly appreciative of what God has used him to do in my life but I just can’t get totally committed to him based on pity or how he helped me. So I’m thinking how best can I tell him that he is not my type without hurting his feelings?

I am grateful that he sent me to school but I can’t be in a relationship with him anymore. I want somebody of my own class who owns a big house and a Range Rover not a mahobho. Ndazviramba.
