The men women show off and the ones they don’t

01 September 2016, 21:15 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There is this gentleman that told me I at the time that I was just with him for the moment because I had no other options.

First, I always have options.

Second, he was right. I was not planning to take this anywhere. And I don’t know why.

I was just seeing him, but on the dirty low. I was never fancying myself in a relationship with him or do what all women do when we are mad about a certain man; plan how I will be married and having his babies even though the man has never looked my direction.

I think he was the kind of guy most women choose not to expose to the world. If he is trying to have house dates, perfect because I don’t want anyone to see me with you.

When we are walking in the supermarket, I pretend to be looking for something on another aisle. When we are in the queue, I pretend you are a long lost neighbour.

If I am going out with my friends, the love of my life (he does not know he is the love of my life) gets an invite not because he is buying drinks but because I like him and want to introduce him and show him off- women show off their men too by the way. But the ones we are seeing on the low they never even know my itinerary so that he can invite himself; even if he says he will buy.

We have good conversation but I think that is mostly me because I have good conversation with people I want to have a conversation with.

He was just not my type in all sense. Looks, no? I just did not see myself married to him or being in a realistic relationship with him and having the type of fun I would have with a boyfriend. My heart skipped a beat every time we would go in public. Romance? I did not see myself being romantic to him and for him which is part of a relationship. Do you think he is lame? No he is not it is just am used to a certain pedigree and he was not that. Hence why he stayed in the bushes/ closet.
