5 things never to ask a woman on the first date

19 October 2015, 19:03 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - So there are things never to ask a woman on a first date. Ever!

Can I cook? Do I cook?

This one is very degrading. Unless I brought myself to your house for a date, you cannot ask that. It gives the impression of what you think are the proper roles in a relationship. It gives the impression of you checking to see if I can fulfill your standards of what a woman should do.’ Can I walk barefoot and pregnant in your kitchen while whipping something for you to eat too?’

How much I earn

I can ask you that, but you can’t ask me that. I will only ask like on the third date but not first. Not because I am being mercenary but because some of you are very sneaky and I need to know how you are paying for my dates. Some of you are always up to no good even with the ‘jobs’ you hold.


It is on a need to know. I should volunteer the information myself because I like you. If I do not like you, I will most definitely not tell you anything. The first date is about establishing what the both of us like and if we like each other. Personal information, the child or children, comes after we have established that.

What my mouth can do

As an African woman, I cannot tell you the number of times a man just stops and stares at your mouth because he is thinking very nefarious thoughts. Do I feel negative about it? No, because I like my mouth. You cannot ask what it does though neither can you stare at it. Keep that to like the second year of our anniversary because you have earned it.

How much food I put away

Believe it or not, some people were raised by apes and they behave like them too. If you asked her out on a date that means you cannot ask her about her weight; you should have just left her alone if she was not your right size. It is that simple. If we are out, I am not going to eat a salad but I will actually eat because you are paying!
