The woman men love to avoid

23 September 2014, 13:20 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The following just stand out and many can relate to. Does not necessarily apply to Kenyan women only but most of us are prone to them.

Getting drunk hazardously

If you know you went out during the weekend and you have no idea how you got home, you fall in this category. There is nothing a guy hates more than having to carry your drunk self anywhere, and that is a gentleman. I heard two guys at the gym talking and one just said flat out, ‘I will leave her there....’ Do you have any idea how embarrassing it can be for you to wake up in a ditch or on a field because no one bothered to carry you back? It should serve as a lesson, not for you to go and start lamenting how you do not have good friends who can take care of you.  Men do not subscribe to be your baby sitter.

Body odor

Some of you may sniff at this one but I have heard a lot of complaints from guys about women who just do not buy deodorant. Others reek of sweat and I am not sure if you are aware of this and you just do not really care. Worst case scenario, even I have experienced it, is when you have a patch of wet sweat under the arms. If you are working on a construction site and digging in the trenches you can be excused but if you go under, he should love me for me, then something is wrong with you. No one wants to be talking to you while they face the other side to avoid your body odor. Not limited to sweat, but some women just have funny odors from not showering properly.

Not leaving a little to the imagination

There is dressing sexy and dressing trashy. I am sure most of you have no need to look far we have them all over in Nairobi, and just Kenya generally. Ever heard the term, a little goes a long way. Looking like you forgot a piece of your clothing at home does not impress anyone.

Being the man

I am not sure if it is a trend I am missing out on, but recently while boarding a matatu, she was looking early thirties pushing forty and was wearing Timberland's, had a hoodie with a basketball jersey and big jean shorts, then to just prove the point for me, she had tried to put make up on her face, it all just looked like a tragic accident. If she was able to scare me, you can just imagine what she did to the guys. There is a difference between pulling off the tomboy look and being a grown woman dressed as a man and still trying to attract the said men.


People need to get in shape. I know we talk a lot about, how the guys have the beer gut, and still binge on nyama choma, but having a good body just says a lot for you as a woman. If you want to have a gut and still squeeze into low cut tops and complain how other women are stealing your man, then it is you who has a problem. If you do not want to make the effort then you do not have the right to complain.

Unkempt nails and hair

I do not even need to go into this one, there is no remedy other than cutting the nails and hair short and going for the natural look if you cannot maintain it.
