Should a woman in a relationship take another man's number?

Nairobi - This might sound salty, especially to people who do not like hearing a different kind of truth. This is for women who think they are in a relationship but the man is not aware he has been in a relationship for the past two years. He has been playing games the whole time while she is here, ‘holding him down’! What are you really holding down? These days it takes more than gravity to ensure a man’s penis stays down and you are not it!
You cannot be loyal to a womanizer
It is good to have options around, so that you can just pick out one when you run out of time. But stupid is when you let good men get away because you are apparently in a ‘relationship’. Women like to pretend they do not know their man’s truth so that they can save face. Save face for what? They are not the one’s sleeping with him, waking up to him or cleaning up after him. They are not the ones that have to deal with his harem. So when you know your man is not treating you with the respect he can give his woman then you do have the right to take another man’s number when he shows interest. Do not be a fool and hold down some man who has to check his phonebook to verify you are calling. For what?
He is not aware of you as his priority
I am honest. I have fallen down the trap of trying to prioritize myself to a man who does not think of me as a priority when it should be the other way around. Am I ugly? No; but every sinner has his day and mine has come my way a lot of times because of men. Check yourself because of every time you limit your options because of one man that does not appreciate having you in his life. You can only be loyal to the man who is loyal to having you; otherwise; he is not worth that type of loyalty. Pick that new guy’s number by all means.
He is not an upstanding figure of a man
You know what I mean. I would talk about Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj but some of you do not know who those are. So put simply; why are you the husband in that relationship. As a woman, you know your needs. A lot of you can be comfortable in the role of the head at the table but why be that when it is not what you want. African culture thrives off male and female roles in the household; when we push it a little bit is when the dad babysits the child so the mum can go out.
If your man is not acting like the man you need him to be then take the number. That is all.
I could go on and on but technically what this is all about is that when a man is not fulfilling you as he should be then take the number and adjust your roster. Do remember though, I said relationship and not marriage. Marriage is too sacred for me to play with so I would not encourage some things like that because for it, it is a situation of, you made your bed so shall you lie on it.
