4 signs you are wasting time on the wrong man

03 March 2016, 12:55 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Are you wasting time on the wrong man? Here are signs you actually are.

Someone asked: ‘Why are you single?’

A certain woman answered: ‘The man I want is currently in a relationship so I am waiting for her to die so that I can swoop in.’

In my dark sense of humor, I obviously found this very funny until I also realized it was also tragic both for her and the woman she is waiting to ruin a relationship for. Women do not accept defeat easily and when it comes to the man that she sees as being very good husband, boyfriend, father, partner and spouse material, she will move heaven and earth to have him.

So this lady is not going out and looking for another man or trying to date or just looking at someone else other than the one that is taken. But she is waiting, waiting for something to go wrong in his life for her to step in and take over.

Why are you wasting your time for a man that is clearly taken?

He will come and tell you of all the rough patches. You will offer the shoulder to cry on in the hopes that he will eventually come back to re-ignite it into something more. While you are busy babysitting another woman’s man, he will still go home to her, eat her food and be her man. You will be left in your house, full of hope and no one to show for it. Then you will say how he gave you false hopes. Did he ever tell you to wait for him or did he ever ask you not to see other people? I am sure your answer is going to be something like, ‘Then what does he mean by coming around and talking to me about his deep feelings?’

News flash: Men also need to talk and they will not do it with their fellow men. So either you accept that you are that good friend or that good listener; because as long as he goes back to her, you are nothing more than that.

Waiting on the man that has not figured himself out yet

Men, just like women, also hit a patch where they need to figure how life is handling them. Now the best man will tell you that that is what he is going through and he is not ready for anything. He does not want to give you false hope. But do women listen? Nope, she ill stick around hoping that after all is said and done and she was there to pick him up, offer the lift, the lending hand and what not, he will remember. A man will always be ready for the woman he wants. You just were not it, take that and roll safely away from him. Being friends is not a bad thing but if you feel it will ruin your next relationship, let him be!

Let me wait for him to ruin his relationship, so that I can take over

There is always the woman that thinks she will be the game changer for a particular man. She knows he is bad. He is bad news all around and he is not good at all. But maybe his pocket is speaking and his style is smooth. He is flamboyant in a way that turns her heart. So she will ignore all the warning signs and be that friend that all girlfriends hate because she thinks she is better than them. If he is creating havoc in her life, prepare yourself as well for the same. That is all I can tell you.
