For women, its not always about the money

Nairobi - For women, the next best man is not just about the money. Yes it helps, but there are signs that he is a man the woman in his life would keep, too much money or not.
He is hardworking
A guy who has money does not just represent the fact that he
is wealthy but hardworking. It is not about her wanting to come and eat your
money but if you work for yourself you can obviously work for your family. Some
men are too busy wasting time complaining how women are after their money.
Every guy worth the pinch of his salt under this circumstances is too busy not
to even looking at which woman is after his money. If you are not worth it for
him he moves on. Mundane issues do not create a disturbance in his life because
he has more important things to worry about. It is the lazy ones that are

We have all heard the theory of girls maturing faster than
boys. Let me explain this point in a way a woman understands it. She is let’s

meant to do that as my husband?
He owns this house or houses, that car or this many cars. It
is not that we want to own them or maybe we do just a little bit but it means
he is responsible. It simply shows that he is not out spending thousands of
shillings a night and if he is it is because he has millions so he deserves it.
The man who has been working all his life and has nothing to show for it, is a
sign of lack of responsibility to us. So why would I want to struggle with that
when I can get better.
So you see it is not all about the money but what he

hungry but if you are a guy out there and you keep lamenting about your better
counterparts instead of doing something about it, then maybe you do deserve
