6 things a woman should never tell a man
28 January 2015, 16:57
Nairobi - A relationship is all about openness, confiding in the other
person and basically just letting them into your life.
Showing him your banking statement
Not because you have too much and you are afraid that he is
a conman. Or he is going to stop taking you out; or a host of other reasons
that make him out to be the bad guy. If you are a woman, and you are working
and you have a negative bank balance, do not leave your statements lying
Nothing spells irresponsible to a man than a woman who has a
really well-paying job but is living hand to mouth. He will run for the hills.
How many men you have slept with
Sometimes men ask questions that they really do not want the
answers to, especially when you are initially dating. If you are naïve, and
have not been in the game too much, you will start spilling the beans. Does not
matter if you say one, two, three or four because he really does not want any
faceless images of other men sweating over you. That is a given. In such a
case, you are given permission to be as coy as you can muster and just bat your
eyelashes and change the topic.
The craziest, nastiest thing you have ever done with another
Maybe because you want to show him that you can be bad, or
are adventurous and experimental. Be coy again, give your relationship a chance
to crawl before it jumps. Most women fall into this trap hoping that the man
will want to be with her more than before. If you do that, you have given the
relationship a less than fighting chance because he does not really want to
know where your mouth has been before.
Talking about your exes
It will be hard and he will ask what went wrong in your
other relationships seeing as you are dating again. Do not give him a journal
of all that went wrong. Keep it short. If possible just say, that it did not
work out because you wanted different things. That is it. Do not make yourself
out to be the victim, or have a tale of woe on how he did you in.
That you cheated
Never let that cat out of the bag because he will never
trust you again.
What your parents really think of him
We have forty two tribes in Kenya, and apparently we are the
modern generation that bends rules. It is the rare people that are now dating
people only from their tribe. Be honest and just admit to yourself right now
that if you dad or even mum found about that guy you are seeing you will be
skinned alive. Keep it all to yourself. If it works out to walking down the
aisle, introduce them at the chapel.
