Is the Kenyan woman undateable?

18 September 2014, 13:26 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Ask yourself, ‘Would you date you?’.

I am sure some of you thought of what you were doing last night, where you went last weekend, or what you did when no-one was watching and realized you basically scared yourself. Some of us think, I do not care about worldly opinion, that is all good, but once you want someone, you care for their opinion. That is why you want to date. Are you dateable?

What habits make you undateable?

It is not the Triathlons or the Olympics

Some of you just want people to be chasing you. There is that neighbor, then the three workmates and the two friends you are not sure about. What are you? Checking people off a register? If you are of the habit of having all those people who are not sure of themselves want to be around you because so and so is, then the legit people avoid you like a plague. They have better things to do than be your minions.

Your “High” Standards

It is okay to have standards even high ones but you cannot be a #Campus Diva thinking you are Kate Middleton and you deserve a Prince William. You want a man earning 7-8 figures, to take you to the new Caramel Lounge, looks like a mix of Denzel, Lenny Kravitz and anyone else you can think of, yet you are a mess. Messes attract messes.

My second boyfriend was, and my third just couldn’t yet my fourth was always. Even IO want to jump off from this bandwagon it’s already too heavy for me to lift.


Spells of insecurity, and lack of confidence. Things can’t mean just what it means, they all have an underlying meaning. You can tell from his or her tone. It is okay when it is once in a while but all the time? No.

Lack of interest in the other person

You just care what is happening with you, the other person can take the high road. If you are just about yourself then you probably need to work on you, then when you are done that is when you look for other people.

Playing hard to get

If you are a teenager do that, grown-ups have no such time in their hands. You either want something or you do not. But there is a difference between dating and dropping your underwear for all and sundry.

Liar liar, pants on fire

Nothing you say seems the truth. It is like you spend time creating lies about everything even your own existence. How is someone meant to trust you enough to date you, when they are not sure you are who you say you are.
