Five relationships to avoid like the plague

15 September 2014, 13:47 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Women are creatures that like having connection to other beings. These may lead them to very damaging relationships. Others are just draining, not just with men but with women too.Here are some to avoid.


The boyfriend who is not a boyfriend.

You know he is using you yet you just hold onto him with your dear life. He only calls when either 1. He wants money usually calls it a loan 2. He wants you to come over 3. He wants to borrow your car to go somewhere, most probably driving another woman to Maasai Mara

This one is just the worst because for most it is hard to break from it. You go into it with expectations even though he never even told you or showed you that he is interested. You waste your time, finances and your energy instead of putting it where it will be more appreciated.


The Girlfriend who likes your shoulder

She is only there when she is in trouble but you never see her when you are in need. This one just likes exploiting your emotions. Likes putting you on an emotional roller-coaster and dumps you when you are at a high as soon as she gets a fix. She gets off on the pity parties you throw her.

The workmate who is always in need

You are basically doing his/ her workload, and giving him/her ideas which they use to get much better projects and accounts as well as better remuneration evaluation. You get nothing because she or he never admits that they had a little or the much help from you. You are the behind the scenes creative editor.


The bank that is essentially a walking human being

You know the one, they always want a little help with everything. The loan never gets back. I am sure you have even lost count, and if you sat down, you would be surprised or you already know the much they owe would have been down payment for even a car. Even now, you have just M-Pesad them the rent money that they are short on.


The Relatives

They want everything. They want to come over for a month. They want to buy land somewhere. They are about to bury someone. Someone needs a job and they heard, ‘…unafanya kwa kampuni kubwa na watu wakubwa…’ rarely do I blame people for this one because it is just ignorant. They think everyone is running the human resource.

Our hormones failed us in this department, in terms of emotions I would have like a lot of testosterone. Rather act an idiot when it comes to some things rather than be in touch with it.
