The problem with dating a young man
05 July 2016, 17:32
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.
