Key reason why you have a bad partner

12 March 2015, 18:03 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - You know a chameleon can change color and camouflage but it is still a chameleon. If it is on the bark of a tree, it changes and looks like the bark but it remains a chameleon and does not become the tree.

Women who complain about attracting the wrong type of men, should re-evaluate themselves. You want a well to do man that has his life in order yet you do not have your own in order. If you are confused you will attract the confused lot too. If your company is made of jobless drunkards then do not be too surprised when the men that approach you are the same. They have looked at the company you keep and so they have the confidence to approach you. Does not matter if the handbag you carry is his whole rent, as long as he met you with that shisha dealer friend of yours- he knows he has a chance.

It does not say much for you, when you have a shaggy weave that you had on since January. If it stinks, the assumption is that you stink too. It also projects that you are untidy. So a well to do man will not jump out of his Mercedes to come and make your acquaintance when you look like someone who digs ditches somewhere. I will be correct in assuming that your current boyfriend does not keep a clean house either. It disgruntles you that you have to jump over dirty shoes and socks when you go and visit him. You ask yourself why he cannot be neater. You tell yourself that that is just how men are. Wrong! By the way men who are correct are very clean and neat.  I do not know where the assumption that men are untidy came from but majority of the men I know are cleaner than some of my female friends. You simply attracted the type of person that you are.

If you speak sheng’and cannot form a coherent sentence when you open your mouth, then it should not baffle your mind as to why your boyfriend went and got silver teeth in place of his own teeth. If you behave like a bum then you will attract bums too.

It is always good when you want something better for yourself. So you get the perfect hair, the perfect wardrobe and adopt the perfect accent to go along with the new look so that you get that man you want. It seems easy when you are making out the plan; but class knows its own kind. If it is a classy and suave man that you are aiming for then you have your work cut out for you. Unless it is love at first sight, chances are that you will only attract the type that you are. The type that is like you; faking. You both do not have it yet you are hunting for the ones that have it, in the end you end up together. Then you end up with someone that has you questioning your instincts. Your instincts were not wrong, only that you were still a chameleon even with the camouflage. So you got a fellow chameleon like you.
