Alert! Lazy Kenyan men on the loose

14 January 2016, 15:35 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - For a minute I was confused by someone and that is a very rare occurrence. He was really insistent and persistent. The conversation bordering on, am not even sure if it was offensive but it had me making faces on the other side of the line. It was a conversation that had been building up for a while not a one-time thing. He had met me once and his thinking was this, I want you to come to my house. I want you to be my girlfriend and I constantly told him, I don’t do dates in the house. He says in an agitated tone, it is not a date but I just want you to be coming to my place; we have a good time together as a couple, you meet my friends and I treat you nicely as my girlfriend. So I ask, ‘so it is not a date then what is it? A friendly visit?’

Which runner wins a race without even being in the actual race? He just shows up, is given the medal/ trophy plus his prize money and he goes on his merry way. No training, no coach, you just show up on d-day and while the others are running; you go at the finish line and ask for what is yours.

Technically that is what this guy was telling me and that is why I found it so offensive. That is how I even knew this would never go anywhere; such a lazy man with such a lazy attitude. He wanted the joy of the prize but not the effort that goes with it. What a lazy way to try to court someone and he had this very unconvincing lies and lines. ‘I will treat you nicely; I will be taking you out and giving you what you want as my woman!’ Eeeeeh, sir boss, what is wrong with you now then you can continue with that treatment if I allow it? What he does not know is that I have been through the school of life and graduated with very nice honors. He is the type that wants the benefits without any effort and I just gained new respect on that day for the ones who shut up about their intentions because he sounded so vulgar and crass coming out with it that way. ‘I don’t want to date, but we can do well together!’

He also had nothing to show for that pompous attitude. You know the type that you can tell he will stress you just form the way he carries himself; this one did not even have that.

The title these days has become so easy and simple to give and you will find yourself being trapped by a no-good if you do not watch yourself. As long as you don’t stress him; you have your own life; you do your own things and he continues as he would normally would, he would really like you to be in his life. Someone will paint for you a very pretty picture, like the type above, the when you are hooked line and sinker; he is just living on as he would have. You are left married with someone who is not even bothered because you have always been independent of his life, he just needed a wife and a mother of his children who was independent. Watch out for the kind of people you allow to have access to you especially when you are doing fine alone because just as the good ones are watching so are the bad. The good are too busy using their energies on getting better. The bad are busy looking for ways to leech because they have no idea what they are doing. They need a new mother to carry them on their back.
