Five categories men place ladies.. Where do you lie?

19 September 2014, 12:29 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Men cannot compartmentalize many aspects of their lives but this is just the one they can do with finesse. Handling females is one thing they are good at and they put them in categories that best suits them. Or who serves what purpose at a certain time. Take a look at the following list, I am sure there are more out there but just to cover the basics which are you?

The friend

The confidant who has always been there all those years. Has seen him in his rock bottom, and picked him through it. Thing is, she may harbor feelings that he might finally see her, but he only sees her as a friend. Clever ones pick themselves up and move on, stupid ones keep waiting for him to catch up.

The trophy

He likes showing her off and being seen with her. Attends functions and events with him, also sophisticated, independent. They have good conversation as she is relaxed and confident. May also act as hostess for his events too. Does not apply to married men only, also single guys.

Baby mama

She is the mistake that he wants to forget but can’t because they have a link, the child. He thought she was the one, but down the road things did not work out so they parted ways. She may be angry and very vengeful. May cause scenes especially when she feels taken advantage of or if he does not take care of his responsibilities. May feel saddled especially if she feels that he is easily moving on while she now has to juggle with a child. Resentment plays a key role in this relationship as it is about expectations that went unfulfilled

The Mistress

The pleasure female. Can be easily replaced if she steps out of the set boundaries. The clever ones rarely do because they are aware of the situation. She is privy to all information but she is too sophisticated to step out of line because she knows her place. She never creates public scenes and she has her own life to live outside of him, very independent. May run in same circles, either at work or a club.

The What-if

The choice is between her and wifey, if wifey was not there she would be the next best thing for him, she is the emergency gear in-case things go wrong. She has been groomed for the position, worst thing is, she may spend many years waiting on him up until he chooses the wifey over her. But still, she wasted many years of her productive life unaware she was in a competition. Most times she is in the background kept on tap, for just in case…


He obviously respects her since he deemed her worthy enough to share his last name. She is the stamp to his letterhead and he knows it. You may cheat yourself that he does not love her but she does have a piece of him despite what he tells you.She keeps his life functioning and if she left he would be devastated. That is why he is not leaving her for you.  She gets a long better with the in-laws, better than any of the above can ever anyway. Homely to some extent, not too flashy. Principled, unless she tricked him.
