Female activities men pretend to like but don't

19 September 2016, 14:11 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - A friend is getting married (not my friend I am just telling you a story); so a friend is getting married. Typical female reaction who is a close associate to that friend, is if she is not included in the bridal party, she will be very angry. If you are a lady and you have more than six friends, it is usually very hard to pick out a bridal party because for most women they are now waiting to see on a scale of 1-10/ 20 or whatever where they rate as your friend or don’t rate at all. That is why some women can have up to 20 bridesmaids all of the bickering and not helping the process.

The other day I was telling my friend she needs to wed very quickly so that I can be in her bridal party but then I remembered the work involved and the expenses when it comes to buying more than two dresses and shoes and hoped she will not choose me. I would rather attend and be worried about my food but be part of a bridal party? Hell no! I do not want it after some thought. It is your job to make sure the bride’s day goes perfect and you are not doing it alone, you are doing it with other nitwits. It is a migraine, it is a headache so I am praying she just tells me all her female relatives had to be on the entourage. Her family is the type that gives a new meaning to extended family.

Being part of a wedding entourage

I think the men do it because the guy has asked and they do not want to let him down but if given a way out I do not think the men want it. Neither do they enjoy those daily meetings where you are taught the perfect way to twirl your partner while going up the aisle. If there are people doing a countdown to the end of the wedding day, I am sure it is usually the groomsmen.

Going to strange people weddings

He does not know them but you do. So when they said plus one, whom did you pick? Your man, not your girl like the way you did while single! Men dislike it intensely when the girlfriend or wife suddenly plans a day for him to attend the wedding of people he does not know. Worst part is while you will be mingling; he will have to sit around idle (he does not know anyone remember?) or make small talk with people he will probably never see again. If he leaves because you seem to be having the time of your life- he is not supportive! How to waste a complete day of your man’s. If he says he does not want to; you get mad.

Your family gatherings

It is not that he dislikes your family; but there are these families that have get togethers every weekend. After a while, trust me, the man is not enjoying it. He does not even spend as much time with his family but you enjoy it because all the women are together, they chat and cook or whatever. The men; unless there is a game on and they are allowed to watch; your man is killing himself in his head as he makes up an excuse for next time.


This does not apply for all men because there are some men that actually like doing it. On the other end of the spectrum are majority of the guys whom as compared to walking from one shop to the other would rather spend his weekend on the couch watching his favourite show or game. Not tarmacking in the sun as she figures out where to go to next.
