5 reasons he is attracted to you

Nairobi -  You have probably heard of the saying that; ‘you cannot keep anyone if they do not want to be kept by you.’ Mostly true.

But at times the person you are with has no idea if they are ready or if they would ever want to commit. Through your actions and deeds, you can actually change their mind. Not that it is full-proof but it is a start.


Your attitude when entering the relationship, throughout the relationship/ getting to know each other or when they are with you. Your attitude towards them and how you look at things. Some people take the partners they are with for granted. They also take what is being done for them, no matter how big or small as their due because they think it is their due. Attitude can also be taken as appreciation. When your partner does something small or they go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable but you still find a way to make them look bad. You become a turn off. Who would want to stay with someone who turns them off just by their presence?


Many do not know how to take their partner as they are because you get into a relationship hoping to change them. Hoping that as they grow older they will become something you want and not a better version of themselves. If you ever want a lasting relationship, let it not be with someone you are thinking of changing but lie them as they are now. You get less disappointed when you learn to not expect things from people. We all want to be better people but not be with someone who does not accept us for what we are now.


I think this one should have even gone first. Circumstances change and situations never stay the same. What you have now, could be gone tomorrow. What you do not have now you may get or maybe never even get. We all want someone whom when things do not work out they can keep their head. If an emergency happens, an accident or financial straits take a toll, we do not want a partner who will heap abuse on us but will sit down and help us get a solution while we adapt.


Not changing but challenging; the two notions often get confused. You challenge someone to become a better version o themselves every day. You seek their self-improvement in positive ways and not negative such as emotional abuse and negative criticism.


Looks are always a bonus but what else? I should be able to talk to you and you should be able to hold a conversation with your partner without them being lost and lapsing to an uncomfortable silence. Stimulation does not just come from the physical but the mental as well.
