Silly decisions women make

16 June 2016, 18:58 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - At times, women can be the key to their own relationship downfall.

If you ever get to the married part that is…

You see I am coming to understand that the reason some women (not all of you) are single is because you have o many rules to go with you. 

At times I am sat listening to a woman talk and I get this really dumb idiotic look in my face, the one that has your mouth open and you are looking totally clueless. I wonder to myself, ‘How did you ever come up with such?’ It totally bedazzles me and my mind.

You know, when someone calls you a cat lady, at times it is not even because you own one but because of some tendencies you are exhibiting.

I am not saying don’t be principled, don’t have values and you most definitely should stick your guns to the things you believe in but some of you do get out of hand with it as age creeps in.

It is not that you are single because you have no choices but because of the things that do come out of your mouth at times when you are laying out your laws on a date. Give the man some time to digest you and enjoy your company before showing the illogical part of your brain. It will help the guy embrace your terms.

‘I am on my second virginity. So I am saving it for the next man who will marry me.’

Let me tell you the problem with this idea. It sounds smart; no disease, no anxiety over your period and all those other issues that come up. Right? There is nothing wrong with it by the way but when it is used to hold any of your dates hostage to see if they stick around, you are enormously loosing. No one wants to stick around for a woman who is putting it out there like I have been out and about but now you need documentation to get there.

Virgins are the only ones that can escape with such lines. It does not matter if you are trying to be right with God, once you lost it the first time, you cannot reclaim that line and blame anyone for looking at you like you lost your damn mind.

Then there is the one with the holier than thou attitude

It is like your tongue needs to be made of gold before it licks the sole of her shoes. She will complain, complain and complain the whole time bout men and how good for nothing they are. If it is not that, she is looking for ways in which to point out, she is worth all the drama and he should put up with it. Then she comes crying why no one wants her.

So I tell her, ‘Change your attitude you know’ and she will reply that she does not want to be a doormat. There is a difference between demanding your self-respect and being a total b****. You cannot have your cake and turn around and eat it as well. Then you blame the guys for not putting up with you. Your decisions, your choices, your consequences. Don’t say, Oh, but I was right about men and now they are proving it to me. See how quick they run?’  Girl, please! You need to grow up if you want to play with the big dogs.
