Women will never understand men

Nairobi - Just when I think I have figured out what is going on in a
man’s head, something happens and I realize that I know nothing. Just the way
men do not understand women is the same way that women too can never understand
For example, why you would cheat with someone less good
looking than your wife or girlfriend (I got a theory for that but I will share
it some other time). Or why you cannot eat food cooked by the maid because you
have a wife (my dad). Either way, you are also a mystery.
One of my friends was dating this guy. But then along the way,
a non-Kenyan guy showed up and sparks started flying. Thing is she introduced
this new guy to her circle of guy friend which her boyfriend was also a part of
and everyone became friends. She did not want to give up the new ‘thing’ that
she was having, but I would always ask what the scenario was when she, her
boyfriend and her fling would sit down at the same table over drinks. Every
time I would sit down with them, I would join the corner furthest away from them
so that when punches and drinks started flying, I would be in the clear. But it
was always fascinating to watch: the fling mooning over her, the boyfriend
knowing about it but acting stupid and her in-between looking nonchalant. She eventually broke up with her boyfriend
for the new guy but they all sit down for drinks and look amicable. It truly
boggles my mind every time.
That is why I still
think I am yet to learn a lot where men are concerned. I cannot sit and ask my
friend’s ex what he is thinking but I have to wonder. Was she not worth it to
begin with, it is like he had passed the salt to the other guy at the table
while waiting for the other courses.
And is it not the man
code not to go after you’re your ‘boys’ woman? Though he technically is not the
boys since he joined later but in my thinking, while they are drinking does the
new beau wonder what skills she was taught by her former man. Also when he is
kissing her where has her mouth been as far as he is concerned? Anyway, if it
does not bother them then why should I bother?
That is the reason why when it comes to men, in my thinking,
all your exes should not ever cross paths; that is a lot of cooks in one pot. I
am also sure, as compared to women where we are always over thinking things,
the men could care less because a woman once out of his life, never crosses his
mind again. She is like a course that he ate and now he is waiting for the next
one. Between the two men, only one has a gleeful look on his face and it is the
former beau, no matter the fact that he was dumped. In his way of thinking; he
came, saw and conquered.
