4 habits the Kenyan woman hates about the Kenyan man

08 January 2015, 19:19 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The Kenyan man is not always a bad man, but he can be at times. Here are 4 things he should desist from doing in 2015.

Stop Comparing Kenyan women with other women

I got onto a bus on Ngong Road from a Sunday spent with my girlfriends, I do look good and at times that gives people the wrong impression that I am a snob. So I get on the bus and go sit at the back, unfortunately that was the only seat available. Even more unfortunately for me  I sat next to this group of men that was like a sports team together. Silence, then a few minutes past, and one of them out of nowhere starts talking about how we Kenyan women think we are too hot and how we really are not worth it. He starts talking about how he is marrying a white woman because we Kenyan women are a headache.

I agree with the fact that we are hot, and we do demand the best from the men we are with. So those who do not make the cut and want a mediocre girl are left to hang dry. I almost told them and pointed out that white women have standards too and there crowd would not make the cut on any sane woman’s list but I eventually just switched off because they were mentally draining my energy.

If I was a less confident woman it would have gotten to me, but what I felt for this group of men was pity because I just realized that they were really bitter. My point here is, most men instead of growing a pair… resort to maligning women who at the end of the day are your mothers, your sister, friends and deep down you know that the real Kenyan woman is worth  a lot more than that one you have not met yet. But keep on dreaming.

Calling us crazy

We are not crazy; you are the ones that make most of these women lose their heads. By being deceitful, dishonest, untrustworthy, and sneaky. Try being upfront with the women in your lives and allowing them to make a choice on whether to stay or leave. That will create a good balance for your relationship. Do not tell a woman that you are not married or she is your girlfriend yet you are cheating on her. How do you want her to react when she finds out, that is where our passion lies, maintaining our pride. If you take that away we are allowed to act out of the ordinary.

Stop expecting us to mother you

It is true women are inborn nurturers and care givers but it is disrespectful to expect the woman in your life to have that sole responsibility while you have your fun elsewhere. If you cannot provide for all her emotional need, then let her go and be honest about it.

Making them insecure

A lot of women are resorting to extreme measures based on what the men in our society choose. Yesterday it was the slim woman, now it is the one with the big derriere, and the light skinned one. I do not know what tomorrows standard will be and chances are that a woman somewhere here in Kenya will be trying to alter herself just to keep up. Just pray it is not your daughter.
