7 things you should never do to him

03 June 2015, 16:30 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There are several things you should never do to a man unless you are keen on ringing alarm bells.

Calling his mother

This is a classic one. First of all you are yet to meet her personally. He is yet to introduce you meaning he is discriminating on the company he presents to his mother.

I do not know how you got her number but chances are he is not the one who gave it to you meaning that you have been snooping in someone’s phone. Why are you calling the mother to tell her about an argument that you have heard yet she does not know you? Or forcing an invitation to her house.

Unless you met her, and he is the one that introduced you. She calls you and you have an open relationship with her. Calling a guy’s mother and you are still one of his randoms makes you look crazy to him.


Dropping in unannounced

No matter how many times this advice is given, it is never heeded by the women folk.  Even women who are just a friend think that you will not mind if they dropped in unannounced.

Maybe you had a one night stand and now you know where the guy lives and since he is ignoring your calls you want to make sure he is not in hospital.

Or maybe you want to ‘help’ with his chores and he should give you a standing ovation instead of staring at you as if you are crazy.

One thing I like about living in Kajiado is that I will never have unannounced visitors. My friends just get tired from thinking of the trip. You need to call me even the women, call me because at times I just do not want to have a conversation with anyone. You coming unannounced forces me to be creative.


Re-arranging his house

It does not look good and in your opinion it should be somewhere else. Trust me, a man does not survive his 20-30 something odd years without knowing where his toothbrush should be.

Unless you are 1.) his interior decorator or 2.) he has asked, do not rearrange someone’s house. Same applies to the girlfriend that will have you kicked out or disinvited.

The only person allowed to rearrange a man’s house is his wife!


Planning the future

You are only allowed to do this if it’s a year or two and you have to know if you are wasting your time.

But date number two and you already have the babies’ names set out; that is psychotic. You can have them but just for insurance, keep it to yourself otherwise the guy will flee.


Having a one month anniversary over the first day you met

Why? That is all I am thinking, what he was thinking before he ran away and what you should have been thinking at that time.

It may seem like a good idea when you are planning it; the dinner, the presents or the weekend trip. Point is, unless you are married, you do not have anniversaries. You are ruining the moment.


Buying him clothes

A friend of mine once narrated to me how some woman who liked him, they had not even started dating officially, started buying him clothes.Yes, she liked him, had made her intentions clear. He had said no but she decided to sweeten the plea by buying him clothes. If she was out or window shopping she would buy him clothes.You only buy your husband and your legitimate boyfriend of more than a year clothes. The rest are persona non grata.
