4 things a man will not tell a woman

03 February 2015, 18:10 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  Most women, upon hitting puberty had that guy or man that would make our heads spin and feel like we would go to the ends of the earth to be with him. There is a book by Sherry Argov on ‘ Why men like bitches’ which is a must read for a lot of women , mostly those who define themselves according to relationships they are in or they men they want to be in that relationship with.

That is why there are a lot of situationship to go around. Just because, a woman somewhere is holding a torch for a man who is busy chasing someone else.

There are a few life lessons that women as well as girls can learn from that book that will change their thinking, if they are wise enough to follow the advice.

There is a reason why there is that saying that goes,’ for every man, there is a woman and the opposite applies’. Technically what this just means is that, whatever tricks you apply on him some other woman has tried before you and just like you, if he does not want you, you will stay in the back burner until his something better never comes up. Thinking that telling him you love him as no other woman ever has, is already a fail for you when he is clearly not holding the same when it comes to you because as long as you are making a situationship comfortable for him, he will not be the one to rip that band aid away unless he has got what he wants.

Having a job does not make you a prize

You are in a situationship thinking that because you have a job and can take care of yourself, that that man will appreciate you more because other girls are not doing the same. In your head you are thinking that at least you are not prostituting yourself for money so that places you a notch above the rest. Wrong, when you are over 30million people in a country, I am sure a man can come up with a few from his past and his present that hold even more jobs to support their families as well.

Mothering him will not make you a prize

He got stuck on rent, so you helped out. He got into a car accident,and did not have enough on him so you helped him cover it. He is in the hospital, so you ran to visit. He will be appreciative, but if he did not want you as girlfriend before chances are you still are in the same category he placed you in before.

Having sex with him does not make you a prize

A lot of women cheat themselves that since they are now intimate with the man that he sees them as the girlfriend, yet he really has never given them the title. If he has not said you are his girlfriend then chances are that you are in a friends with benefits type of situation.

Being his house help will not and does not make you a prize

Doing his chores for him, rather than letting him call the cleaning lady still leaves you in a loop. Because what he is thinking is, at least he will have extra money for the drinking binge this weekend.  If not that, he is worried you have no life outside of him and he has to entertain you.

Uttering the words of affection and adoration to him, does not make a man suddenly realize that you are the one for him. Or that what he did not see about you before is suddenly clear. It does not work like that, because at the end of the day, just like the various parts of his life and how he categorizes them, a man also categorizes his women. The fling, the needy one, the one-night stand, the one he calls when he is bored, the one who does chores for free, the one that got away and the one that he really wants. Is just yo as the woman to put your emotions aside and think logically what category you fit in.
