How to get away with Valentines Day

15 January 2015, 18:56 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - 

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 together.

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.
