Men don't like women who talk too much

03 May 2016, 22:06 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Apparently, a woman can be too opinionated and with that regard, that is why she is still single and no man wants her.

How about she might just be single because she is single; why do we have to put so much reasoning into something that is not really important.

But still does it mean that when you are in a relationship and can successfully maintain it, it is because ‘you know your place’ and do not try to get out of it- woman to woman that is utter hogwash. Am I a feminist? I am a feminist and I am not a feminist. I will tell you when it is time to chime girl power but I will also be honest enough with you to know when it comes to family, some roles just cannot be reversed. As a woman, even while you are raising you kids/ child with help or without help there are those times you will admit to yourself that there are just some things you could never do. That is the honest truth.

Do not try to be in competition with a man to be a man. You can be in competition as a woman but you will not win it trying to be a man. You cannot.

Furthermore, when I say, roles cannot be reversed when it comes to family I do not mean you allow someone to walk all over you when you are in a situation that does not make you happy. Don’t take nonsense because the first time you allow it, will be the start of the others to come. If you want to be courted a certain way, let it be known. If you do not want to share, let someone know. If you want marriage, don’t allow someone to waste your time. If you do not want other wives to come after you, better make those threats. Men do not like threats but it is what it is. If you want to be part of the discussion, set the tone for it because every time you try to be meek and mild, that guy will milk it and you will not like the results.

All the above do not mean you sit on someone’s head and try to fight to be the lead, know you place and fill it.

The biggest feminists are in happy relationships and marriages because they knew how to play their part; they are not single by the way. If they are it is just because they choose to or they have not found someone for them yet. You do not hear any of them crying how they will die virgins. No one tells you that.

When you do not talk back in a relationship, is when you allow everyone to have their piece and realize that all those little battles are not even worth it. You can let your man have some. You only go for that really important thing that is how you win easily because he recognizes the fact that it is that important to you. If you keep having arguments about everything and anything you end up sounding like a broken record that is how you never get anywhere.

When you are dating, don’t be afraid to put your foot down on things you cannot stomach. Set the tone early in the relationship so that it will never have to keep coming back to haunt you. A man can either choose to be with you after that or leave you so that you can find someone else who will understand where you are coming from with your reasoning.
