Can a man take advantage of my stupidity?

22 April 2015, 17:17 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I like to think of myself as quite the intelligent individual but there are those moments that wisdom flies out of the window while lack of sense takes a drivers seat. These moments occur when a man is normally around.


So the first key to winning is when you actually admit to having a problem so that you can take effective measures to control it. That way you do not give it time to metamorphosize. Like being an alcoholic, the first step is usually to admit you are one then you go into rehab.

So what am I talking about?

Those moments when as a single woman a man approaches me and talks down the moon from the heavens all in the name of love when in real sense it is lust.

If that man is upstanding, looks well to do and let us just say normal, then why the hell not. Then again, you can be approached by a clown that is when I need to check my stupidity and hold it back from making an unwise move; like accept that date because I do not have anything better to do or feeling lonesome because it is that time of the month.

Those moments that I will falsely believe that he is actually legit, throw caution to the wind, give it up without even a date then afterwards wonder why I am relegated to the voice mail. When he comes at me with all those lines of how am the end to his all, the means to his sustainability and no other like me. I remind myself we are 7billion people in the world, half or even three quarters being comprised of females. Someone somewhere heard that same line from him too. Where is she now?

Then there are those moments a man will convince you to have unprotected sex, just this one time. It will be fine, nothing will happen. Something will happen, in fact something usually happens just that one time. When the consequences come knocking, you will bear that burden. ALONE! If not alone, I check my winsome stupid side and ask it if I want to chain myself to his fellow stupidity and how the both of us will manage or not manage. Whether he is the person I want to be the father of my stupid decision result.  If the answer is no after that intense negotiation in my brain, those minutes when a woman is quite when you are convincing her with standard lines, these are the thoughts going on in her head. Can I manage living with an STD? Then of course common sense steps in and stupidity takes a back seat.

Then business? We all know of that woman- a girlfriend or wife, who is always investing in a scheme of her man’s to show support. It is good to show support by the way. Just show it to things that are actually legit and you both can actually see a fruitful end result. If it is a never ending cycle of give and fail, everybody warned you, you also know it and keep warning yourself but you keep draining the account. Check that stupidity at the door.
