Nairobi -How do you know he is a good man?
They know how to actually pay attention and listen
It is good when you are talking to find that someone is
actually listening to you. It is even better when you know that they are paying
attention. What that communicates is that they are genuinely interested in you
and what you are saying even though it has no benefit to them. Not because they
want to gain something from you or floor you with a request in the end. They
are paying attention because you are interesting to them.
They are upfront with their intentions
Why are you annoyed that you are in the friend zone when you
helped get yourself there? You approached her with underhanded means, so that
you can try to upgrade it to something else later. Women trust the first
impression you give them. You would rather approach her and tell her how sexy
you find her rather than pretend to care about her story with the last
ex-boyfriend so that she can lean you. You want to be a friend? Well, that is
where we will place you. Want to be something more? Let it be known from the
beginning so that it sticks in my mind. So that when you try to kiss me, I
don’t draw back with a disgusted look on my face.
Do not objectify women
Some men do not like the fact that women sleep around. The
same men are the ones that hope to sleep around with the same women whom they
are busy shaming for their sexuality. Do you expect the whole club to be filled
with virgins for you to pick from? Women
appreciate men who understand that just like they are men with their own needs,
I do not need to suppress mine to look good to you. We appreciate it when you
acknowledge us as an equal on all grounds. You might not agree but it’s best if
you keep that to yourself.
They are accountable for their actions
Do not act like my boyfriend if you know you are not or
would not like to be. Do not act like you want to be my friend but in the end
it is because you wanted access to either my pants or my friend’s pants. Do not be nice to my child but you know you are
not in it for the long haul but a fling. We like men who take responsibility
for their actions and own their part in the aftermath not looking for someone
else to blame. Or telling her that she is the one who should have put a stop to
it because she knew who you were and what you were about. You are an adult too,
she does not need to hold your hand all the time.
