4 excuses women use to avoid dating

06 November 2015, 14:31 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Are you still single after a year of being single? When you feel like having sex, is it your exes that you call? Are you still having sex with your ex? Are you looking at your friend as the next relationship material because there are no good people? It might just be because you are full of bullshit and you are bullshitting yourself by going back or holding onto things that are just not for you.

I cannot just do this alone

You have no idea how people are afraid of going out on their own. They make excuses on the number of things that could actually go wrong rather than right. What if the club closes early tonight; what if it is closed? What if no one comes to talk to me, now I have no one to talk to and now I look desperate?

People like having a back up in the look of friends. If things do not go right at least they have company at the bar rather than look lonely at the bar.

I am too busy

I have so much to do and have no time to just go out and start pointless conversation with people. I have no time to start courting afresh. I am too busy to look for new people.

I would rather the devil I know than the angel I do not

I have seen enough devils for this particular excuse not to even work for me. If I let something go it is because I know I am never going back to it. I already know if it did not work the first time, it is definitely not going to work the second time. People swear by change;’ oh, they have said they are better, they have said they are willing to work with me’. I swear by the boomerang effect. Do you remember that cartoon where the character would throw the boomerang and the fellow character on its side would  have a grin on its face thinking of how fun it was about to be until it got hit in the back of its head? Now you get my point. It is called the boomerang!

Why should I work this hard in something that should come easy?

People apply easy and lazy in relationships because it is the one place where you do not get grades neither do you have to have any performance appraisals. If it is not working, I would rather just stick around rather than go out and start afresh.

But my family already knows them

I do not like bringing new people around them. Then maybe for a change, why don’t you wait and see if someone is actually for you before you bring them around important people.
