Rev. Counsellor Cyril George Carstensen Lutterodt has stated that there is nothing wrong with a lady dating more men because it is a form of capacity building.
He opines that one must have a number of persons to study and select from among them which is the best for her.
According to him, since it is just a period of studying each other, one cannot claim ownership of the other as it blocks the chance of perhaps getting the suitable partner.
“Dating more men is capacity building… when you are dating a man, he doesn’t pick you from home; he doesn’t pick you from the office because he’s seeking for demographic data of you. He can’t use your picture as his ‘dp’ [display picture]. That is an insult. It is impersonation and he’s blocking your chances of meeting prominent people. That is why a promise ring is a curse,” he said on Hitz FM’s Showbiz Filla.
Counsellor Lutterodt has appeared on a couple of shows to discuss relationship issues. On all occasions, he has come under criticisms as a section of the public hold the view that most of the things he says are misleading and weird.
They have subsequently suggested that he should not be entertained but some have disagreed on the basis that some of the things the counsellor says are realistic and very practical.
