'I can't date a poor man'
05 January 2016, 19:22
Nairobi - I was having a very stupid conversation with my mother and sister. I was telling them how
I cannot survive a life of poverty; thus, neither can I date someone whom
will take me down those shadows of poverty. They told me how someone can have
potential to go from that state to the other state that I like. True! Problem
is the person that they were referring to was never going to be that and I knew
it. The problem with mothers is that when they hit 50 they want grandchildren
and I was not going to do that with any specimen I came across.
Now let’s cross over to the man in question. You see, I
don’t value myself as the most beautiful woman on this side of Kenya but
please, with my brain, face and body; I do know that I can do better. He is not
even the in the good category. The man sent me an ‘I miss you’ message last
night and it could not even get me tingling but had me feeling
nauseous. I do not like being a mean person but this person might just be the
reason I cross that path.
Listen ladies, I already know when a man knows he is about
to hit the jackpot. This man is not the type of hardworking I want or go-getter
that I want. He is the type that will know as long as he misses the mark, I
will figure it out. I don’t want that type of man in my life. I need someone to
look up to, not one to look backward at and that is what he is. He doesn’t know
that my nose is bigger than his.
This man is the type that will try to trap me into marriage
or motherhood hence why I cannot even have a soda with him. I once made a joke and told him how I was
pregnant in the hopes of him losing my number. The guy was so happy talking
about how he was about to be a father. Be a father with what? He cannot even take
care of the food situation in his house when I am there. Does he think I am
stupid enough to bring my own child into this world with that kind of struggle?
I just put him on pause.
The next time you want to see some man or are pining over
him do think of you current struggle and if he will help you figure it out or
make it worse. That is the one mistake most women make. They think that you
will do it together. In order for you to have a respectable and good marriage
go for a man who inspires that in you; if not, just know you are about to live
the struggle life.
