Do not invite yourself to your boyfriend's plans

27 June 2016, 15:34 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - A friend told me it must be a really good sign that her relationship is heading somewhere because her man invited her to a family gathering. I just had to give an affirmative because I am starting to realize when someone asks you a question; they already have their answer which they like better than the one they are asking you to give.

I was happy that at least she had not invited herself. When most people are not sure of where their relationship is going, sometimes they are not even in one yet but they would like to force the situation. You want to make your presence known so that they could give you that vote of confidence.  It usually looks like a good idea right at that moment but in hindsight it actually paints a very poor picture to the person you are actually trying to end up with.

Inviting yourself to someone’s place, someone’s family home/ event or function or a meeting with friends- all a bad idea because trust me they all know about you but they are all trying to decide where to place you. One time you will end up there and find yourself with the competition (who was actually invited) and you will create a strenuous environment for everyone. You leave a bad taste in people’s mouths.

You paint a picture of desperation which is never what you want. You need to do your own things and live your own life. You allow people into your life not you chasing other people. It might end up the way you want short term by twisting someone’s arm but it rarely ends well long term. Trying to impress the relatives is a good plan but only after you have been given the title and never before.

Is there a competition that you are trying to beat; then you really are chasing after the wrong person? You should never try to end up with someone who is making you fight for them like a medal. That tells you that the other person will always be there.

Desperation has never been known to be an aphrodisiac but a turn off.
