My friend only dates rich women

Nairobi - A person I know, a man-a Kenyan man, subscribes to the
theory that he can only date rich women. Not because he is trying to be a gold
digger or is after her wealth. No! He believes that the rich woman cannot be
swayed by money. He also believes that only rich women can have class,
sophistication, poise and the right attitude. I reminded him of that
‘birrionaire’ girl in the basement parking and wondered what chapter of sophistication
that was from because I am yet to reach that part.
Seeing as I cannot count any rich or wealthy people in my
lineage, that did not sit quite so well with me. I had to point out afew facts to him but he is
one of those who thinks he is a well of wisdom and everyone should drink from
I feel very bad, for the woman who will ever actually really
like him and not have any change in her pocket. Because it seems for him, your
attributes, your capabilities or the character that you have do not rank in any
category for him as long as you do not have money. In which case if you are
that woman you should walk away now because he will never change his mindset
and no matter how much you do or how much you grow, this is the kind of partner
that you do not want to have by your side. He will be the first to put you down
and make your accomplishments seem worthless.
A relationship only works with a partner who appreciates you
for what you are now such that when you are that bigger person, it just makes
them see that diamond in the rough that they were a part of its polishing.
On the other hand, when you try to fit your partners
criteria of an ideal they already have, let me tell you, that you will never
measure up to that ideal. Even if you get to that point where you have it all
in that checklist but you were not that when they met you, they will keep
looking for something else to put on that list. To give them that excuse as to
why you are just not perfect or were never good enough for them.
And just like the Kenyan women who are supposedly looking
for the rich men to upgrade their lifestyle. There is also that brand of Kenyan
men who fall in that same category.
We no longer care about the person and their good. The nice,
genuine people are losing in this new game that you have created. I do not know
if they even still exist anymore because when you are in Rome you obviously do
as the Romans do. In the end, you get that accent no matter how hard you try to
stay true to your beliefs.
In the end, the bad apple will always meet that bad apple.
Since the woman is looking for a rich man and the rich man is looking for a
rich woman. They meet up because she will camouflage and be what he wants and
he will be what she needs. In the end, everybody got what they wanted seeing as
he just needed her to represent something for him and not bother about her
morals. So, why is everybody mad?
All I always hear is that Kenyan women are behaving badly
and not being what the Kenyan man needs. Maybe it is the Kenyan man, like my
male friend, who should check his criteria because he just attracted what he
