7 reasons women fight for a man

04 August 2015, 18:25 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Women actually don't fancy fighting for a man but circumstances can force them to.

Competition for men

How do I put this one without sounding dumb? By the way, not all good men are taken, if you are patient, and look for the one that is right for you, there are men out here in Kenya by the way. Does not matter if he is your tribe, from Kenya, or a different race. Men are there if you are just patient enough to wait. Problem comes in when women do not want to get out of there comfort zone, and fight for the one man they all see in the office every day of the week. Instead of him taking you out, you are the ones taking turns to take him out even though he is not the next best thing. Take the competition out of the equation by getting out of your comfort zone. Do the same things and you will continue getting the same results. Think of it like chemistry, different chemicals mixed in different situations, give different results. You might win a competition, but look at the people you were competing with, that tells you if you compromised by the way.

Everybody else around you is growing with their partner but you are still stuck

Nothing worse than to see everybody around you being taken down by a fever but you are the only one left standing. It makes you anxious and worried especially when it repeatedly does not want you. Especially when it comes in the form of relationships and marriage. You start going back to the reject list and think that maybe you could make it work if you just did not pay attention to his womanizing, condescending, hypocritical and egocentric ways. Maybe you can just make it work! That is how no-doers get the good women.

There is nothing such as 100%

Which is true; no one is perfect. Everyone has a flaw. The problem lies in settling for something that is not so much of a flaw that can be overlooked but a habit that is formed when a man sees he can get away with anything. It is not compromising when something hurts you, makes you uncomfortable and makes you miserable. Healthy compromise is when both parties do it for the one they are with and it leads to something healthy and fulfilling.

Every female’s enemy; age!

This one is self-explanatory. Whereas with men, the older they get and the more stable as well as mature they become; they are more in demand. For the women it is the opposite. The less most of the good men will pay attention to you especially if they have the option of a younger model that has all those qualities you have spent your prime years in perfecting.

Not comfortable with being alone

For every woman that is comfortable in being by herself there are ten more that are trying to fake it. I will not be as harsh as to say that maybe no man wants you but that idea alone is enough to make a woman go back on what she could have never stood for in the beginning.


It always gives the wrong signals and it is because women take it too emotionally and personally. He is nil on everything else on the list but at least he is good in bed. Deny it all you want but there is a larger percentage of women who settle in a relationship because at least the man is good enough for her in that area.

Being in a rush

Self-explanatory and has been covered under the second subtopic. But when you are in a rush to accomplish some goal you had set long ago, a woman compromises. She set it while she was comfortable, in no hurry and sure that she could do better. It is here, now and the better never came. ‘Let me call that Jack* dude that I met at the bar the other day. I was never going to marry a bar tender last year but I will open one for him, at least now he owns a business. ‘Those are the kinds of conversations women have with themselves.
