I just can't wash his dishes

Nairobi - I just can't wash his dishes.
Some man asked me if I could wash his utensils for him. I
told him I had just done my nails. He tells me, ‘Na unajipenda.’ (You like
yourself a lot) In that tone that was meant to guilt trip me into actually
doing it. I told him it was not news, my mum says the same thing, and she buys
me gloves to wash hers for her. Needless to say, he was very disappointed
because I continued eating my food and watching television. His help came and
did it later. He is not my boyfriend, my husband, my anything and I was not
trying to be his anything so it all worked out. Do I want a relationship from
But what about you? Do you think your ego is so big it is
turning off men? You should still not wash anything until he claims you as his
Having pride in your self-worth is not a bad thing but some
people take it a bit too far even while they are actually in a relationship.
You have such high
demands yet you do not even look them
Demanding for things from someone like they are your father
and they should sort it out for you is definitely a turnoff. Someone is looking
for a relationship; it is not Adopt-a-child. You cannot eat some places because
they are below you. You cannot interact with some people because they are not
on your level; what is your level? Asking for expensive dates yet someone
barely knows you. You are acting like that now, what will happen when they are
with you? That is why they run.
You are in a relationship
but for you it is not give and take but take, take, and do some more taking
You cannot expect your partner to do things for you but you
raise your nose at doing an equally good turn. You have a ton of excuses as to
why you cannot do this or that. It is not how you were brought up. You do not
know, so learn although we know it is just that, an excuse. That relationship
is one sided and soon enough someone will get tired of you and look for
somebody else who treats them as they would like. Ego in a relationship has
never made anything better neither has pride. No one wants to have to deal with
someone who thinks they are above them.
