Women are there to be lied to

28 April 2015, 16:11 Shakila Alivitsa

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 gestures.

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 beginning.

The men know this and those who feel that they do not have a chance as compared to a mzee flani, he will reel you in so badly but the time you wake up from that stupor you are pregnant with the second child.

You see man driving some big car, you have never been to that man’s house he is busy bragging for your benefit because he knows you are about that life. You fall for it, but maybe that man is just a driver to the car’s owner.

He takes you to some house, the dog is barking because it knows that he is not allowed to use the front door. He tells you that it is still being trained and it is barking at you. What you do not know ids that he just paid the watchman to keep his mouth shut because the boss is out of town. That is how you fall for lies because you are not looking for potential but that which has already been made.

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 his.

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 driven at odd times or given a cheques twice in a month. The have nots have a lot of time in their hands to be master manipulators.
