Women are there to be lied to

Nairobi - As a woman, I know for a fact that we like to hear what we
have already invented in our heads as compared to what actually exists.
In relationships and marriages or engagements that is always
the case. My generation of women is pulled more by money than the heart of a
man. I will admit that I am not one to be swayed by poems and romantic
We look for men that will sit us down and tell us how they
are making it big out there as compare dot the ones who will tell us about what
their interests in life are. We do not want to know how your hobbies are
camping and trailblazing but want to hear about that tender that is going to
mint him millions.
We want to go to man’s house, not to show our wifely
qualities of cooking and doing laundry but to check how much those seats cost,
the television screen that he owns and that neighborhood that he comes from. Is
it one that needs me to carry wet wipes or I am good walking in sandals. Will I
get splashed with mud or the streets have a pavement.
Little wonder then that most women can easily fall for lies,
get hooked and trapped in them and never see the truth for what it was from the

That is how you fall for lies because you are not looking for potential but

Some women I know come and ask me very silly questions, and
when I tell them the truth they think I am jealous of their rich men. Why?
At times it is much better to have a conversation with that
person who walks you down to your house in the dark rather than the one who
gets meetings at 5pm and you do not know where he disappeared to until 9pm in
the night. He was dropping his boss home. That car in your drive way is not
I am not a big advocate for potential because I will admit I
do not know how to spot it but hard work is a better substitute. With hard work
you can build something and come up with strategies.
Otherwise some of us are just falling for lies and we do not
even know it. Does not matter if you have gone to that house for a year, been
