The ideal Kenyan man is....

18 September 2014, 18:32 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Obviously, there is that woman you want and you are not sure how to convince her you are what she needs. Because all of us are always out for the next best thing if what we have does not satisfy. What makes us women loyal to one man and prevent us from jumping ship.


Has goals in life

You may love me to the moon and back and even bring it with you but as long as you are a lay about who is not aware of his direction in life, then why the hell should I be with you because I know that I do not respect you. We love men we respect.

You need to respect me

Respect me enough not to ogle at other women, it is okay to look, even I look, but there’s a difference between appreciation and downright constant ogling especially when we are out together. Knowing that I am good at what I do and not talking down about me to your friends or family or allowing them to do so.

The one who compromises for her

Most times mutual agreement between two people is the hardest thing to accomplish but it is the bigger man who will step down and be able to find a mutual ground for mutual satisfaction.

My Family and Friends

A good boyfriend looks out for not only you but also your family and friends. He goes out of his way to make them as comfortable as he makes you. Not the one who gets angry when they come over and does not buy food for weeks because they pillaged the household for one weekend.

Does not have addictions

Porn, alcohol, smoking, drug… this will make anyone flee.

Does not force you into anything

If he believes what you are doing is not right, he will not pressurize or manipulate you into doing what he wants but will instead advice you and leave it at that.

Enables trust in the relationship

Does not give me reason to doubt him or feel insecure about the things he does. It is not about checking up on the person, but not doing obvious dodgy things and trying to pull wool over my eyes.

Allows you Independence

It is all good to have time for each other, but a little space outside of you is good for both of us. Allowing me to pursue my goals and do my own things. Freakish control behavior which turns abusive is and never has been good.

Listens- No interruptions, but allows you to explain yourself before jumping in with his opinion.

Is that your ideal man?
