3 signs a woman is desperate

15 October 2015, 17:03 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - We play out of our league all the time. A woman may be earning KES 15000 and barely making rent but if a man who earns the same even dared to help her with her luggage, she will act like her father owns the fueling station. That is what am I am talking about if you are still confused by the title.

Is it bad to play ball out of your league? No, it is encouraged. Who does not want the best for themselves? I do it all the time. There is nothing wrong with a guy on my level, just that I will take longer to notice you. Then when I notice you, we will both be sizing each other up and I will be taking down notes on all the problems I will cause in your life if I decide to lay down and just decide to leave you alone.  There is no need for me to be the reason of someone’s stress.

I take it to a certain level but some women take it to an extreme level that ends up making them look really bad.

Those events that you go to and wake up Monday morning completely flashed

Flashed: broke without even some fare. That is when you call that guy who has a crush on you to help you get somewhere. You went to the event to look for an ‘important’, ‘well to do’ man. You dressed well, bought expensive dinner and drinks. No success but now back to ground zero. You do it again next week or when a paycheck comes in. When they say live within your means, they do not necessarily mean paycheck to paycheck and depriving yourself of what you want just know your limit. Limits are not just about liquor but also when you know that this time around you have to skip the good life and be a commoner for the rest of the month.

When your outfits cost more than your savings

There is nothing wrong with buying yourself something to make yourself feel good. The thing to remember is that there is always going to be a rainy day. One outfit a month is okay at times you do not even need it. Know the difference between when you need something and when you can do without it. It is just a dress, next week there will be an even better one.

Ordering that thing you cannot pronounce

So maybe you got lucky and attracted that someone who can support your lifestyle or maybe you decide let me give this guy a chance and he takes you to that expensive place even though he looks like he can barely afford it. You put on airs. The problem with airs that are not in bred is that they make you look stupid.  You end up using wrong cutlery. You order filet mignon even though you can barely pronounce it. Airs! They make you lose a second date or even the potential boyfriend.

If you are going to play out of your league, do it like poker when you know you have a hand. If you don’t pull out from the game and relax until next time when you have a winning hand. That is the only way you will get away with it.
