The problem with dating a young man

05 July 2016, 17:32 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - From a young age, I have always been drawn to people older than I am.

In primary I was a tomboy, I once beat a classmate for telling me he likes me. Then there is the one I spat on a chewed piece of paper because he ran around telling everybody he liked me and now they made songs about it. He just winked and I lost in. In high school I fell for a guy in Campus.

In my twenties I just end up with someone who is thirty most of the time.

Now that Akothee finally decided to introduce the man in her life, the buzz is up and it is the men who are once again starring with the comments about her dating her ‘sponsor’. The young men are on and on about her women are not respecting themselves because they are seeing older men for money. How about it is not for money, how about it is just for the simplicity of dating someone who is mature; knows how to take care of himself, and her.

My dear please, if you are not ready to be a man, continue relaxing and let women do what they want to do.

I started with himself first because let me tell you, I once lied to myself on how I should give some age mate a chance. I think he was even younger. So I lied to myself on how I could do it. Do you know the first time I went to his house a cockroach bit me? They were all over. It was a bedsitter.  I just knew but I said I will not be judgy. If cockroaches do not bite people, I am sure it was a bedbug then I was itching all over. Gosh! That experience slapped me back to my reality.

Most young men cannot even take care of themselves yet they want to have young girlfriends that look fancy on their arm. They cannot even buy you a proper meal. I am not talking about Villa Rosa, just a small even a hundred shilling food. You go visit the guy he starts telling you how he got drunk and forgot himself. So he is now broke, if possible he asks you to give him some money. One once asked me if I could be his sponsor. Dear Lord. So I am literally never bothered when young guys bash young women for dating older men. I have experienced you and I told myself, ‘No. thank you. Never again. What you are trying to possess and confess in me shall not prosper in this life.’

The problem is not with the young women but the young men need to educate themselves- the Kenyan young men.
