Don’t hurt yourself by choosing to date in half measures

08 August 2016, 19:29 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I don’t know what the protocol is while dating or relationships or whatever we choose to make them to be but I like straightforward.

Just no label but if something needs to be said, I will say it.

I something needs to be said, I will say it.

If you are bothering me, I will tell you.

If it is not working out, and it does not please me, I will tell you.

So yesterday, I followed my own rules and had to tell a certain man like it is. I don’t even know how to say it but I had been talking to him for a while so I let him know yesterday. ‘You are treating me this way, I don’t think I like it and that makes you undateable to me. I and you can never go anywhere but it’s cool.’

So I thought the guy would appreciate that I am not leading him on and taking him for a serious ride and dumping him off at the highway. Seriously, he always comes off like he does not care so I figured it would not matter.

Turns out I should have kept it all to myself.

Men, seriously, if you want a woman to take you seriously off the bat then act like it from the beginning. Do not act shady with half measures trying to measure me and how I would fit in your situation.

Newsflash! We are doing the same too these days and are not waiting around for a man to misuse us until something better comes along.

Don’t come to me with half measures and when I zone you off the list, you start acting mad and annoyed yet it was all on your own doing. You never respected me like I would want someone I would eventually date to act so, ‘bye boo!’ It is that simple.

I am not being rude, just getting off the ride before an anti-climax. Or before I drain myself. We just don’t have time to waste anymore.

If someone does not want you, they do not.

If someone wants you, you judge by their actions. That simple.

If someone just thinks you are good only for a roll, take it like that and no matter what they say later, I have never thought to persuade myself differently. If you were never good enough from the beginning, you will never be good enough to enjoy their best. That simple.
