Men will always disappear, get ready for it ladies

13 January 2015, 18:54 Shakila Aliviysa

Nairobi -  In the movie Takers, where there are all those lovely men that women want to look at; Idris Elba, the late Paul Walker, Michael Ealy, Hayden Christensen and T.I, T.I is known as the Ghost.

The T.I bit is interesting and I think it is because he knew how to be elusive and just disappear from the radar, of both the police and his fellow crime doers.

Now let’s bring it back and talk about the men that have perfected the art of ghosting. Not for purposes of crime doing but getting away from women that they did not feel were worth the second date.


I have to sympathize with both parties here because the woman is calling and texting and wondering why she is not getting a response. Instead of the man being honest enough and telling her that she really was just not doing it for him, he just goes quiet. But I do have to give men a kudos on the sense of ingenuity that they always seem to pull out of their hat of tricks.

This man will disappear, and look for other dates. When he is not successful he will go back to that woman that was blowing up his phone and stalking him on Facebook, telling her how he lost his phone, had a last minute trip-business related ad she will swallow that pill.

The woman on the other hand, does not do the same and move on, because we are built to think that we can make someone better, change them, make them more open to commitment and generally change their ways including loose that bad friend that takes him to strip clubs.

Defining a relationship is something that makes most men who do not want commitment of any kind run away. In order to save yourself some grief as a woman, I urge you to define that relationship, and to his face that way you are on the same page otherwise you will be dating a ghost an not even aware of it.

Believe it or not, con-men exist, fake Facebook profiles are not a myth and the bad boy will not change. I am a victim of chasing after a figment of my imagination and as soon as you Rare able to cure yourself of it then you are a step ahead of the ghosting men.
