Some men are better off just staying in your inbox

01 August 2016, 21:12 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There is this man that I was talking to, or rather he was talking to me- you know what I mean. He was not yet my boyfriend but he was displaying the signs.

But something held me back. You know the way the devil is whispering in your ear but God finds a way to send you an angel to confuse you in the other year. So instead of rushing off, you stay confused until the next morning.

I stayed confused until the next morning. The devil was whispering in my ear on Sunday about a ‘chilling’ session at his house but I could not go because I had just finished washing and committed to cooking. Next morning while heading to work, whom do I see, the devil himself walking out of the club with his cronies whispering sweet nothings to some lady in her ear. So here he is trying to tell me why I should be a wife but he still likes having the other members of the team. Eh, not today. Good thing is he was never worth it so it did not hurt. I just knew I had saved myself, or rather God and his confusion did.

How it happened is that I spent the whole day sleeping only to remember to wash at 4 pm. I am so sure if I had done it earlier in the day, I would have gone because I was ‘bored’ and I don’t think he would have bought me a pizza. I also don’t like food cooked by other people unless I know you know how to cook.

They just want you to come over to the house but the best meal he can come up with is chips and sausage served with an attitude like you should be grateful. Unless you are trying to remain in the friend zone, don’t try this with me unless we have reached that level of the relationship- kuzoeana. Thing is, I don’t think I ever wanted to be seen anywhere with him (you know those boyfriends we hide), so house chill and short stories when I could make it was all good.

So the man thinks he is beating the whole dating and taking her out on ‘expensive dates’. He just does not know you could care less because you do not want to be in a relationship with him anyway. So he can stay playing until you are 50 because he was never the one either way and you always knew it.

Men, just like the way you know your type, we also do know ours.

Just like you have someone around until you find the one that you like, is the same way we at times do.

The problem is when you choose to pull the same stunts with the one you actually like and she ends up not being interested in you in the first place. This is where the men start saying she was using you, no she was not. She was just ‘chilling’.
