Pointers to a man that is not good for you

04 October 2016, 16:22 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I was almost in love then I caught myself. I was just like, ‘…oops, my bad! Need a detour.’

Not because I was not trying but I actually was for the first time in a long time and with a Kenyan man nonetheless. He was also KIKUYU! Imagine that and the way they are always stingy but he sort of knew his responsibilities by the way.

But of course we just had to get to this point because Kenyan men know how not to disappoint with the stereotypes and this one, I caught early!

We were still casually getting to know each other then I visited the house. Ladies, I always tell you, unless you are in it for the food, visit a man’s house so as to know whether you are wasting your time or not. So while I was casually assessing the bedroom on one of my visits I see the instruction manual for a condom package. I don’t jump on it, I just kept quiet. This was not my first visit I should mention that earlier he had asked me if I had left a Mac Lipstick at his house since his cousin had said it was not hers. COUSIN! I was dying with laughter in my head, I still did not mention what I had seen earlier. I wanted to drink that expensive liquor so that my visit could actually have a fulfilling meaning. I just could not leave without anything.

So I drunk and ate the food and felt good even carried some for later. While we were having a casual conversation I just tell him, ‘You know I know you have other women…!’

He is silent for a minute then laughs a little bit then tells me, ‘No…, you are the only one sweetie.’

This fool!

I just grab what I saw on the nightstand and show him with a smirk on my face.

You know the look a Kenyan man has when he is caught but now the priceless thing about these guys is the way they always have an excuse ready with so much confidence you just don’t even dispute to save your breath.

His excuse: ‘That is for the lube we are going to use later on after we get to know each other. I am preparing myself.’ As if I do not know how to read. The thing had condom instructions not lube instructions. I just kept quiet as I did a check sign in my head.

Normally I try not to say men are dogs, but in this case, Kenyan men are dogs! Not saying it with any bitterness because this whole story is just too funny to me especially when I remember the man’s faces while he gave me explanations.

Once again, I have a reason why I date foreigners and not these people.

A man is not good for you when he cannot even be honest with simple things. Why not just tell a woman you are still seeing other people since you are not sure. That way she makes her own decision whether to be exclusive to you or keep her options open as well.

Also, ladies, until you are sure just protect yourself. You are never too sure what these men are doing with themselves as you can see this one here.
