5 traits in the woman a Kenyan man wants

Nairobi - Being female is a matter of birth, being a woman is a
matter of age, but being a lady is a matter of choice.
Being a lady is what
will guarantee you a chance of getting a gentleman. As women we often wonder why
the Kenyan man does not treat you as a gentleman should but maybe how you
present yourself is one of the key reasons as to why you are not getting the
men you want.
and feeling entitled will not get any doors opened for you. A gentleman will
not take his time to sit you down when you are rude and are not even appropriately
dressed for an occasion. Being a lady is not matter of how you conduct yourself
part time and when you feel like but is a character that you possess and how
you display yourself to all people that you make an acquaintance with.
example, going to the restaurant and ordering what is the most expensive thing
on the menu. Believe it or not, there are some women who actually do that just
to see if the man can afford it. If he cannot then he is cut off. A lady orders
what she is comfortable with rather that what she thinks will impress. If the
man can afford the most expensive bottle of wine, let him be the one to order
it rather than you. This is on a date he invited you.

Saying thank you never killed anybody, something that most of us Kenyan
women is that we like to feel entitled to things especially when we are being

10pm, then we journey back another two hours before getting to where we are
going. The poor man will be spending the whole night chauffeuring me from one
county to another.
As a lady, have a mental box where you have listed down what
is acceptable and what is not. Do not let a man call you on his own whim and
mess up your schedule. Have him respect
this schedule. Calls past 8 or 9 in the night should never be taken unless you
do not mind being a booty call, then by all means take the call.
I always stress this point, even to my friends, dress
appropriately-wear clothes that are your size and those that suit the occasion.
Going to a wedding in a tube top will not get you admirers but customers.
Finally, never leave the house with no money just because
you are being taken on a date. You may end up in someone’s kitchen because he
may forget his wallet or you may order something expensive that he did not
budget on which makes for an uncomfortable situation. You can offer to ‘go
dutch’ but if you have been a lady, he will pay with no
