Have I ever been asked out on a date by a married man

25 May 2016, 14:22 Shakilia Alivitsa

Have I ever been asked out on a date by a married man? Uuuum yes! Did I go? That will have to be a yes too. Was I unaware at the time of asking? I can smell a rat three miles away, yes I knew.

I am not a pretentious person so you will ask me as an aggravated wife or an angry dad why I went.  Simple answer; Kenyan men are amusing. I like to be entertained so you would rather have me who has no evil intentions as compared to some other women.

Kenyan men have funny stories to go with them. That is why I date them. The things these guys can come up with in a second to justify anything are just hilarious. And, the worst part is they have judged all of us women as stupid so they just say anything because they are assuming I am stupid. I will not correct you. I like it when people underestimate me.

I will listen, and then I will come and write an article about it.

We are not going to go for the obvious, people do not even have rings these days and when they do, they are more attractive.

A married man will have it all working for him

A bachelor is usually tired, married men aren’t. Married men have balance, bachelors don’t. Bachelors have to find some other way to cope. That is why you will have the drinking binges, the bachelor trips and the things that help fill in the time.

A married man is perfect and that is where your problem is. He cannot do all those things a bachelor does because he has a wife or because he is Kenyan, wives, who are waiting on him. He is juggling them there and he has work here. That is the balance I am talking about. Be wary of a perfect man. Something is off and I will tell you it is a rat.

When a man is explaining himself to you, he is ready

I was once seeing someone; this one I did not know by the way. I snatched his phone just playing around while he was busy texting on a damn Sunday, in the morning. Who is busy on a Sunday morning? I just asked, ‘texting your girlfriend?’ He admitted he was and it was game over because you cannot lie to me.

Some of you are really happy because your man is telling you anything and everything. You should be wary. The best hidden things are hidden in plain sight. When a man is giving you, step by step plans of his day it is in order to make you feel secure; most men that are legit do not do that. A bachelor will not want you policing him because he is still fighting for that small freedom. A married man lost that years ago so he will tell you what he wants you to know and what you think is important to you.



He will be available and he will not be available

A man who asks you to make a schedule and fulfills his part with no drama; is a guy you should be worried about. It is all in that freedom part. He is ready for you and that is what you should be worried about.

He knows this time is set aside for you specifically and the time you did not ask for is with the family. It is that simple. Bachelors don’t jump when you bark, for the non-desperate type but if he is doing what you want? Be worried. This is important when it comes to you going to his place. You can only go at certain times and it is done in such a way you don’t question. ‘I am busy in the afternoon but you can come in the evening’ type of way.
