Why do men expect a ready made woman?

22 March 2016, 19:15 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - When I hear a man talking about how he needs a woman that ‘holds him down’ and a woman that is ‘loyal’; I am usually looking behind him to see how many of the women in his past that he has held down or has been loyal to.

You see turnabout is normally fair play. You want something but have you done that ‘something’ as well?

When you are asking of certain qualities from an individual, do you have them as well because I sure do hope you do because you attract what you are?

When you are a scumbag and you have landed someone that is fine; better check them again because I am sure they are going to do the real reveal right after they have managed to snap you up. I cannot say what people look for in the relationships they are in; because if you are scumbag, but have money, I can see how you will look really good to certain individuals. So don’t blame them when they finally reveal their true colors; just know that you met your match.

She should be ‘yellow’ but not too yellow but also tall enough but not too tall that she makes you look like a dwarf. She should also be a home maker but I want her to help me pay the bills as well and when I get home she should rub my feet. See how you contradict yourself? How do you expect to have a woman that is capable of splitting the bills with you and still expect her to have time on her hands to be a homemaker yet she has the same demanding job that you do?

When you get a woman that is that good to you, you still expect her to stick around through all the bull shit that you put her through then complain about how women are not loyal?

I think what men are currently experiencing is a dose of their own medicine. Before, women were taught to wait around and stick it through because for these same women, the men were the providers so she had to think really hard before making a decision. But now, it is not quite the same because women have also stepped up and are no longer dependents.

So, instead of the men’s mentality changing from what they witnessed their fathers and uncles do, you still want to do what they did but you are yet to realize that the women wizened up. You will not get any loyalty form those quarters especially if you do nothing for that woman. What is good for the goose, works for the gander as well.

Change your mentality and maybe you will get ahead of it. You do not act right, she will be packed and gone doing those things she did for you to a man that is good to her. You want to be bad and mean and still come home to find her waiting-well that is a shocker! Keep waiting and if you are successful, you are one of the lucky few or she is just that good in hiding what she really is upto.
