He is BROKE!!!

19 September 2014, 19:01 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - He is broke, but you are not. We live in a materialistic society where no matter how good you are, you will still be judged for what you have. And for a man, it is so much harder because you are expected to be the head of the family. So how are you expected to do that when you have no job or any source of income. You will not eat love, you will not live in a house made of love and you will not wear love. At first the woman is understanding until the pressure of the outside world starts to chip into her so-called love for you. The mother is complaining, the sisters are cautious, everyone is basically against that relationship.

So how does a guy go about it especially if it is a new development?


There is only so much you can buy up until Cartier ups the ante, if you are dependent on money, gifts to gain affection then be prepared for someone else to outdo you. What puts you a notch higher is how generous you are with yourself. Taking her to that function even if you loathe the idea, if she is feeling stressed, take her for a walk, she will feel safer with you around, unlike letting her go on her own while you watch TV. Have words of encouragement for her and do not be spiteful of her progress. Women like men who encourage them unlike those who put them down.



Being broke does not allow you to be completely down and cannot do anything at all. If you have saved a bit, do not allow monotony of being at home all the time set in, surprise her and do something unexpected. It will be a good surprise and she always look for a next time even though it was cheap.

What is not allowed is to suddenly lose track of who you are and not put any effort at all, deciding you are better off sitting down. Then she will be better off being taken by another man.



If you are broke, you are broke. The minute you start covering it up trying to camouflage it; you are lying to her about something important. You are threatening her stability and security by not giving her allowance to make adjustments. Men operate under the illusion that the woman became angry because he was no longer capable. Instead what you did wrong was to allow her not to make the correct adjustments by not overspending and saving up what she could have saved instead. You let her hang herself out in the open when she could have been able to save you both. As a woman, I hate being hanged out in the open like that, I like keeping my weaknesses to self and working on them on my own while the whole world is not looking in.
