My man wishes for Christmas!!

25 December 2014, 11:23 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  Hmm, what do I want for Christmas, mmm I do not know, but what I know for sure is that I want this year to end and a wrapped package would not go a miss. But that is not happening so I am just going to settle for waiting out next year. On the other hand, we can always wish and I do have a wish list for the man I want come next year.

I want a man who knows his own mind

Just recently, someone called and asked me for a date, I do not want him but he wants me. I have respect for anyone who goes after what they want-man or woman, no fear of failure or rejection. What I do not have respect for is when you do not have a plan and expect things to work themselves out. So after dragging it out I accepted to give him a chance to state his case, but the man then tells me I go for a date at his house. Obviously I said no, any normal self-respecting woman would because that is just degrading on so many levels, especially when it is a first date. Option two, he offers to take me to a friend’s house-how cheap can you get. Then he asks me what I would like to do then. And that ladies and gentlemen is a sad state of affairs because I will not blame him but the women he has been seeing and those who came before me, because nowhere else would a man get the idea that taking a woman to his house is a date, other than from past experience. There is nothing wrong with spending time indoors but that is for when you have reeled me in hook, line and sinker- and only once in a while. Do not ask me for an opportunity to take me out on a date, then ask me again what I would like to do and where I would like to go-impress me. Mwanaume in effort- and for this guy his effort gave him negative marks in my book.

Do not stress me

Just like men do not want to be nagged, is the same way women do not want to be nagged. If you have a wife, she is a partner not a donkey or doormat. Know your to do list because I know mine and I do not ask you to remind me. We are not working on billable hours, so I am not around to make life work for you but just assist.  The same way you want space to relax, I need mine too. My space is not for me to handle your business, it is just my time. Plain and simple.

Be straightforward

Women are devious but that is because men are conniving too-we learnt from the best, you! I like to think I am a practical person, lack of patience is my worst vice and I do not beat around the bush, thus, I would like my man to be the same. I am not asking for your pin number, your passwords, I could care less about your phone and your paycheck. But do not lie if you are married, if you cannot make rent or any bill say so, so that I can plan, do not make me lose my trust in you being able to handle our business. No one likes such surprises, we only like the ones that come in wrapped boxes or key chains and trips to the Bora Bora.


Respect me, I respect you. Appreciation of beauty is good, even I can look at a female and appreciate that she looks good, but going is another thing. Especially if I am there. Never make a woman that you are with feel like she is a step down from what you want, she might be, but at the end of the day, you cannot do better that is why you are with her. She has her value in itself and it is something you should appreciate. She may not be the Julie Gichuru for your one minute Anthony but she is with you, make her feel worth it because there are always bigger fish to fry.
