How to get away with Valentines Day
15 January 2015, 18:56
Nairobi - A single girlfriend and I have planned to have a barbecue on
Valentine’s Day. We are a group of
singles, we are not ready for relationship drama, so instead of hooking onto an
unaware man before the V day, we will buy some wine, and vodka, tequila too,
and loads of meat and all kinds of food to junk on and make a day of that
Saturday. Movies too.
From December to around February, its the holiday season and
that is when you get random texts from people you forgot about; the ex, the
admirer that you just never got to understand what his deal was about, and the
wannabe boyfriend. Thing is, this men know that at this time is the easiest
time to get easy sex from a desperate woman. They are not afraid of spending a
few shillings on a one time meal because he knows you will appreciate it that
you were not alone and thus that makes you an easy target.
Valentines is not so bad though and better yet, it is on a
Saturday making it a relaxation day, and there is a lot of stuff if you are a
couple that you can do with your man. Like us, you can cook together. You can
make it fun and instead of going out, you can either order in or have a cooking
fest. Does not have to be hard work. Having a television makes it more fun
because you can watch movies and series together. A lot of alcohol is also good
because Sunday will look better when you are sleeping in with blinders on.
You can invite other couples over, unless some of you work
on a Saturday, it can still work when you invite people over and just relax
You can travel, just the two of you. The December holidays
are usually about family but if you are good financially and it is something
you have been planning on then one way to go is a random trip anywhere just to
get away from the hustle of Nairobi.
Lastly you can just have sex to pass the time. It is
recreational and what better way to revamp your love life than a day of this
particular recreational activity.
On the other hand, there are men who are trying to get away
from the festivities of that day and here are a few tips on how to.
You can give yourself an imaginary assignment at work
The only way this works is if you give her something
alternative to do on that day so that she does not get mad at you. It is the
time to catch up on that project that has been pending on your desk. But it
will cost you a spa treatment just for her to forget about the neglect, you
might also have to pay for her plus one, a girlfriend of hers.
You can get her and you drunk
On Friday, make sure to go out and keep her out till six, even seven in the morning. This way you spend the whole of
Saturday sleeping, then wake up at night when the day is almost over and get
drunk again just to cover you on Sunday.
Lose your phone
I have a friend called
Paulo. Last year, he was seeing this girl, and a week before V-day, he went M.I.A on her and
switched off his phone, then a week after he switched it back on. The story was
he got mugged and had been in hospital all that time recuperating.
