How Kenyan men invite you for a date
14 September 2016, 19:00
Nairobi - There is this man that comes to visit in
the office; most of the time when he does pass by I am not there and I am happy
about that because the visits are uncomfortable.
Yesterday he found me and
eventually the conversation started to wane.
Eventually, he was just like, ‘When you are
around those areas, you can come I show you where the mall is or you can just
visit me at home while I buy you ice-cream.’
‘I don’t like ice-cream’; that is all I
answered but he was determined so we went on for about an hour talking about
After he left I imagined all the dates I
have been to and imagined how I was invited. The Kenyan guys win by far when it
comes to proposals. These guys have never tried to win a medal for romance;
even if you complain, I don’t really think they care because you are still
‘dating’ them either way.
are you coming to visit me at my house?
Day 1, not even day 3; he will not try and
tell you how about we go I buy you dinner or a drink. It is usually, ‘I stay at
so- and so, so when are you coming?’ You will think when women are complaining
about chill dates they will want to
get ahead by avoiding them but no, they say what they want and when they want.
I don’t blame them wither because if they are still doing it, it means it has
‘Are you at home?’ ‘Are you in town?’ ‘Come
we meet.’ That is the extent of romance you will get. He will only try after
you have been together and he is really into you but in the beginning? If you
refuse from day 1 that is your problem; the next bus is waiting for him to
Normally on Friday’s after work. Cheapest
date to a man’s estimation- a Kenyan guy at that, is when he knows he is going
to be at the club for a drink so he will invite you to come along as well. If
you want go, if you don’t want don’t go; he is still going to go at the club
because at the end of the day the end game was him having drinks and enjoying himself
at the one place he can still get away with someone if you decline.
you like rhumba?
I have been at clubs that normally play
rhumba and if you also know them, you know there similar characteristics as
well as the one place they can be found which most ladies do not like. I am not
going to say it because the Kenyan men will be up in arms. You are persona non
grata if a Kenyan man invites you to go do a jig at one of his favourites and
it is not your ‘style’; trust me. I am just going to say it; I do not like
rhumba bars, if it is not the waitresses, it is the crowd that goes there.
