I am afraid of Kikuyu men
16 May 2016, 12:54
Nairobi - I think I get misunderstood a lot but what people don’t
know is that I always talk from my personal experiences.
Let me even start with my very good friend, I will even push
it and say he is my best friend. Every time we would meet for drinks and I have
mine and his cup is empty; I do get uncomfortable and go get him one. Then I
will tell him he owes me and he would lie how he will buy next time. Like next
time will never reach, and the story would be I am broke. At one point I nearly
got annoyed then I noticed every time his girl was around she would buy her own
I thought she was being generous with herself then I noticed
like he could buy her one then the rest of the night you are on your own and I
was like, hmmm, so it is not me and I was back to being cool. If she wants
food; go get your own food. If she wants to drink to death; you know it is from
her own pocket. I was so happy I had declined a relationship there because I
told him honestly, I would stress him and now I knew it would not have worked.
My former girlfriends were out here buying their own drinks, I have never. If
you take me on a date, you are buying, unless we are just friends.
Now to the Kikuyu men I date; this is a typical conversation
between a Kikuyu man and his beau
Her: How was your day? Him: Why?
Her: Did you meet anyone? Him: Just a few people.
Her: (now you are
wondering is he just does not want to talk) was the day good and productive?
Were they friends or business?
Him: That is not important. Her: What do you want to talk
about then? Him: You just talk about anything. I am listening. (I don’t know
how to have small talk so we would sit quietly in front of the television and
just comment on a show here or there)
Eh; these guys never break. You will never know what he is
doing, what he is up to or if he is rich, poor, idle or anything.
If you are dating a Kikuyu man you know you are not getting
any good morning texts of checking up on you calls. He will call when he wants
to see you. Texts are not those long conversations, if it is headed that
direction, it will be, ‘Okay, Good day. I am busy.’ Your jaw drops because you
are now wondering why your man is not treating you ‘nicely’. He is Kikuyu.
Those romantic scenes you see all over; if he is Kikuyu,
check his ancestry, he is mixed with something else. Kikuyu proposals are like
throw the ring type of proposals. If she wants to catch it or not that is her
problem. ‘We have been doing this for a while, it is time.’ If you are waiting
for bending knees and rose petals, ‘Girl, lol’.
You better organize it yourself because he will not mind and if you think you
are about to have tantrums; the Kikuyu man is the type that will beat you with
silent treatment. He will not sit there with you, ‘Darling what is the
problem?’ You will wait my dear. He will ask you if you want to be dropped off
or if you are living together, he just does his own things until you get tired.
If you don’t live together, don’t wait for apology texts you will be calling
the man yourself. They don’t do emotional conversations. You see the way women
complain that men don’t open up; they are the professors of that. You will be
crying, sending emotional messages and whatnot, that guy will just stare at you
if you are there or just not reply. Just go for Wafula and his misery. They do
romance very well.
They also can do cold stares very well. This is why you
can’t do small chatter box stuff with them. He will just stare at you and you
will feel like the most stupid person in the world.
They also cut off women who are falling off the hinges very
fast. Just misbehave and see. He will not try to control you; you will just get
a text telling you not to contact him again.
(not that I have been there, too classy for that but I have seen it
If you even find out his job, it is the 9-5; everything else
is hidden. His wallet, if he even has one, because that is also ‘showing off’
it will have 20 shillings in it and if you see a note it is the one paying for
fare with no change. If you are at an M-Pesa, no extra withdrawal, the amount
you need on a date or whatever is the amount that is coming out. If you see him
walking with notes, it is going to some Sacco don’t lie to yourself you are
about to go shopping.
Good things I have to say about them though;
A kikuyu well-to- do with the right screws man never shucks
his responsibilities; not the other ones that are drunks. Like the normal guy,
he will not compete with you on fees and your necessities at home. They take
care of their responsibilities. That is why they are all about money and hiding
it from you to overspend on your wants.
They are not afraid of relationship and commitment. That is
why they marry faster than most of their counterparts. They are smarter in that;
they marry now, sort that responsibility-family and children fast and not have
retirement and pension issues. Your Kikuyu serious boyfriend will want to
settle down faster than his other comrades. So you might not be wasting your
time if you have been dating for a while.
Bad trend I have seen though, they are also starting to
practice the side chick business. This is why I am afraid of Kenyan men.
