5 categories men put women

18 November 2015, 19:17 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Men put women in many categories. These are the 5 most common.

The rebound

If a man has just come out of a relationship and he tells you he is not ready for anything; take that word just as it is. You will stick around and you will hope that maybe if he gets to know you he will change his mind. You will be part of his process and that way you will never be anything more than that because you came at a time he was just trying to move on. You would rather he did his healing with someone else and come looking for you later than you wasting your time and finding out he will never get to that place with you.

The placeholder

A lot of women are placeholders and they do not have any idea that they are. A placeholder can be given the title of girlfriend but the thing is you will only be a ‘current’. He will treat you well and be your man but in his mind he knows you are not the one for him because he is still looking. He will not tell you that though but let you keep being around just to pass time.

The good time girl

Never take that one as a compliment especially when it comes to the man you are hoping to have more with. If the only time he calls is when he wants someone to have fun with and he is not afraid to bring you along with his ‘boys’ while they go out of town; you are just his good time girl.

The girlfriend

A cross between almost-wife and sure placeholder; I told you a lot of women are placeholders and they are not aware of it. It is why that statement, ‘You were just not for me but here is my wedding invitation’ exists. You think you are going somewhere with someone but they drop a bombshell on you because they were just marking time.

Almost-wife is when he is still trying to decide if he should just jump the loop and makes you the mother of his children. If a man never talks about a future, children and where you will both live with you or his plans; you now know where you are. So which are you; girlfriend that is almost wife or girlfriend that is just a mantel piece.

The wife

A man does not have to put a ring on your finger for him to claim you. How he treats you will let his people know that you are the wife. Just because someone takes you out and has given you a key to his place does not mean you are the wife. He just wants help with the dishes and cleaning. Watch how he shows his respect for you, what he allows his fellows to talk or curse around you and how he talks about his family to you.
