6 types of women men are likely to meet

04 June 2015, 13:39 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There are women all men will  meet in their lives. Here are a few you are likely to bump into during your life cycle.

Even the ugliest of frogs in this side of Kenya has experienced each and every one of the following types of women. He might not look good to you but trust me there is a woman out there dying and clamoring for his attentions.

The mother

No woman can admit with a straight face that she has never tried to mother some man she came across. Not because she was trying to be his mother but because for women the ultimate means for showing your love and adoration is through nurturing and caring. The men act like Neanderthals, we act like we are their mothers.

Cook for him, clean for him, ask if he has eaten when you are not there, or give away the last few shillings you have in your M-Pesa. We normally catch ourselves when we are about to stumble fully fledge into his house. If you have never done such a thing, either 1. You are a liar or 2. You are a better woman than most.

The cougar

Just like the young girls have a version of their old lovers, so do the young men-sorry Mr. Muchiri! I am sure even he at some point was approached by some type in his tender years. They normally come in some variations: the neighbor, the relative’s friends, the woman who is in chama with your mother, your mother’s friend. As a man, you know what I am talking about.

Since I am not a man, I cannot expound on this one. You know what you were getting out of the relationship. Money, her wisdom/ wise words, her mentorship, sexual experience/gratification-or maybe you just ignored her! I do not know, but you would know.

The ATM Card

He is the ATM and she is the card (for the slow type). We are not talking old folks here but the young men can also be stupid when it comes to women. I do not understand you applying for a HELB loan and giving it all to your girlfriend in one day, then next week she will still come ask for more and you will go borrow somewhere to iron out her displeasure.

I recently wrote about the idiot that took 50k and went to buy a second hand IPhone. We could go on and on but there is no man, young or old who has never been an ATM machine!

Damsel in distress

It is normally because he has a soft spot for her. If she is in a bind, he will move heaven and earth to get her out of it. Not because he is her husband, boyfriend, brother or any such relation but just because he has a soft spot for her. Maybe romantic, or what could have been situation. She has him twirled around her finger. It normally angers the current woman in his life.

Wife material

Material just not yet wife because at times he lets her get away or he was never too sure until she was taken away but some faster thinking gentleman. At the back of his mind he is always thumping his head either trying to figure out how to get her or damn himself for letting her getaway. Just because she is the pillar that any man would like to have.

The one that got away

This is the one that came too early in life when he was not yet sure of what he wanted. He might have never even been sure whether she was what he needed but a few years down the line when he has settled into discovering and knowing himself; he sees what he lost. He is not sure whether to be angry with himself or just be happy that now at least he knows what he wants or expects form the woman he will eventually have. If he has one of these, you had better exceed expectations otherwise you will never measure up.
