Basically the things men want me to be loyal to, I just can’t

22 August 2016, 20:30 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Oh, men they are a really interesting lot and the reason there is a big outcry from them off late is not because the woman are doing them any dirty but because they would like to keep doing what they used to but the now-informed woman to keep pretending she is as clueless and put up with it.

If she speaks out against it or act against his expectations she is apparently disloyal. I call it looking out for myself when I spot the bullshit.

Women are not disloyal, okay, maybe some are but what you are fighting against the fact that women have chosen not to sit around like dumb idiots and take it in the way you like dishing it.

I can’t be loyal to lies

This man comes up to you with a story. He spots you, and he has already put you in a box- she is just good enough for hit and run, she is just good enough for something casual and fun, she is not my type…you know the drill. So you take up the story and you play along as well, he wants casual, I can do that. Soon as the man finds out you could be more, he starts changing it up but the thing they do not get with us women is we do not change it up. In relationships, the papers you serve me are the ones I commit to- don’t come up with another agreement and be angry because she is not eating your new game. Then call her disloyal because you still have nothing to offer like you did before.

I have just moved on to someone who gave me a better offer. I am not disloyal, you were just stupid.

I cannot be loyal to inconsistency

Today he feels like showing up, tomorrow, his phone is off. Today he wants to talk nicely. Tomorrow he is being a jack. By the way let me tell you the tale of a certain Kisii man (this is why I do not deal with Kenyan men). I gave him my phone number despite my ticker giving me the warning kicker. It is Saturday, I am tired and asleep. My phone rings and here he was calling, it was around 10pm. I look at it in my sleepy daze and choose to pick up. First, it was the accent that hit me and I decide to ignore it. He finds out I am sleeping and decides to be rude about it like I should have been awake anticipating the call. Then he proceeds to tell me to talk to him nicely. I also don’t know what he meant because I was still trying to wake up and had barely said anything. So I take the phone off my ear and stare at it like it’s a foreign object wondering what to do. He had already bored me and I wanted to get back to sleeping. I just hang up.

One minute you act right, the next you are something else. Am I meant to be blind to a man who knows what he is doing and approaches me the right way? It is like telling me; I get two tenders, both to be completed at the same period thus conflict of interest thus I should choose one. Won’t I choose the one that plays to my interests? Will I go for the one that looks like it is going to give me difficulties? Men need to stop being dumb.

Money, we have to talk about money

There is a difference between you getting through a rough patch and you waiting on me. Clear and concise and obvious difference. Please, where are you confused? You cannot expect a lady to keep you and be mad that she does not want to keep doing it. Unless it was an agreement but the minute a man decides to not be bothered and she moves on; it is not her but you. Men these days are too confused. The worst kind are the ones that demand of her funds but his are a never to be discussed issue. If you don’t want to talk about your money, don’t talk about mine.
