While you’re living in 2017, girls on Twitter are charging their guys a ‘boyfriend tax’
Brb, charging my man right now
by Una Dabiero
If you have a boyfriend, you know sometimes they can be annoying as fuck. They need constant attention, think 'fine' actually means 'fine,' and always order way too much food when it's your turn to pay.
In fact, boyfriends are so annoying, some forward-thinking bitches have started charging them a 'boyfriend tax' for all the trouble they cause.
It all started when this guy on Twitter asked why his girlfriend treated their relationship like a Netflix subscription
You want unlimited access? It's gonna be $7.

According to Twitter, charging for a relationship is the new thing
Time to hire an attorney
That ain't a relationship , it's a contract that needs renewal every month 😀

And it's not cheap
I'm worth at least the cost of 3 burrito bowls
She has the right idea, should charge more

I decided to give it a shot
And I failed pretty miserably.
In 2017, anyone can be an entrepreneur – just ask Kimberly.
I salute your business smarts, even if my partner doesn't want to be my business partner. I'll just make sure he buys more dinners next month.
