Does your partner even like you?

19 May 2016, 18:02 Shakilia Alivitsa

Nairobi - Did you know you can actually be in a relationship or marriage with someone that does not even like you at all? They are just there because you are or were available. It is really interesting and amazing because even as an outsider you can spot those types of couples.

At times, when I have nothing to do and I want to eat I just go to a restaurant and ‘people watch’. They are the couple that you can at times see someone grabbing something from them, walking away and leaving them there to find their way home or condescending in that they order for them because they are not too smart. Why are you with someone that does not even like you? Is it money, the children or let us just go to the regular excuse, you are hoping they change. By the way, the latter is what happens with most relationships that graduate to marriage, people stick around because they are hoping it will eventually get better. It rarely does, they disrespect you now, marriage will make it worse because now you have put yourself in a position they can excuse themselves. For example, ‘You no longer do this for me, but they do…’

People do not know how to love themselves and that is why the relationships that do not make sense are still there. Let me do this-give money, more sex, clean, be more attentive and they will like me. You need to learn how to chuck the deuces, when they play, you are just like bye.

If you are dating at the moment or trying to find someone that you can spend the rest of your life with, take what they give you and make your decision from that. Be smart about it. You know some people have no decision making skills and they choose to blame other people for their mistakes.

I hate the excuse of your parents or your parent did not have it good so you can act like this or be this way because of them. Yes, that is nice for you but that is stupid. Learn to be an adult before you bring other people into the equation. If you have no self-love then wait before you start jumping around from one relationship to the next. Take care of yourself and you will realize the moment that you make better decisions when it comes to the people that you choose to be with. It is not that big of an equation.

It starts with you, otherwise, rush off and be married, see how the both of you suffer because you are now starting to realize that they were not it. More damage is done. You attract what you are; so if you are rotten, you will attract rotten stuff. If you are amazing, you will attract amazing as well. People do not like to agree with that statement because when they look at their partner they do not want to be reminded that they might just be that.
