Judge a man using his car

21 April 2015, 18:26 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  I used to have a bad habit. Never testing the character of the men that I fall in ‘love’ with.

I can now claim that I have gotten better with years. I am not so much in a rush to make anyone my husband, the father of my children. The man I want to boast to my friends about- how he took me to so and so. Or how much money is in his account, how many cars he drives or owns. Where he lives and what we are going to do. Because that is what us women do, we like putting it out there for everybody else to fall hard with envy while we are actually suffering behind the scenes.

I like money but I have limits that is why I work hard even when I get that scent of paradise going past me. You rushed so fast into it and now you are starting to have regrets because what you painted to the rest of the world is not what it actually is.

Ladies, I like men with cars. Not because I want to be driven around but because you can actually tell a lot about a man from how he treats his cars. I like car enthusiasts, not the female but the male. Look beyond the surface and you will actually learn a lot. Believe it or not, you can get a man’s character and how he will treat you from watching him, his car (s) and how he drives the car.

It is the rainy season, if it is splattered with mud for weeks on end and there is no cleaning service in sight that is the same condition he will keep you in. In a splattered condition. He will not care to reduce your troubles. If the wheels of the car are stuck in the mud but all he does is ask for a hand to help him push the car out, afterwards he forgets, that will be the same with you. When you are angry or put out because he did so and so, he will sort you out for that moment to get what he requires from you then forget about you until he needs you next. But he will still err in his ways, not eliminate that bad habit.

If this man is the type that has road rage. You know the ones. They want to yell at every matatu driver and try to jostle everyone out of the road to get to his destination. It is the same with his sex life. Feel pity for that woman in the car with him because she has not actually had pleasure since she set her sights on that man. He also does not care about her and her needs or her desires. As long as he gets what he wants she comes at a distance last from his needs.

He is the one that scratches the car while turning corners and not having a care for whether the car will look better after he is done. He will want things done, use you in the process but you are not getting oiled anytime soon. If it is his meal, he did not buy gas, you better light a fire in the backyard because he expects it to be served at the end of the day. If you had to scrimp and save to get him what he wants do not sit there and expect appreciation from this man because you will not get it. Just like his car ladies, just like the car.

On the other hand, if you are always put out about your man being obsessed with his car start counting your blessings because you know he also treats you well despite all that time he spends in it. Start fetching a glass of lemonade for that man when he is buffing and vacuuming his car because you and I both know he also takes the time to ensure you are well taken care of.

If it is the salon you need to go to, he ensures that weave is always on point. Your nails are always made and you do not have to bark to get your demands met. Am I right or am I right?

He takes the time to ensure you are well fit before he takes you out for a spin. In bed and on your outings. Isn’t that so?
