Why your woman is leaving you

03 June 2016, 12:15 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The thing about dating and relationships is that they are good when it comes to something that no longer pleases you, you can walk away. Marriage is different.  You have to stick around and put up with a lot of problems because it is sort of lifetime.  Married people take their partners for granted because they know that, you made that commitment so it will be harder for you to walk away. This is why I am not in a hurry for marriage. I would rather take my time, keep getting disappointed but in the end know that I made the right decision for myself.

Women tend to put up with a lot from men they are interested in. Then it gets to a point, when someone is treating you the right way and your alleged beau is ignoring you, you realize that you want and deserve so much better. Only for the man to come in and start creating a ruckus because you chose what was good for you and not his comfort zone. Now, you have proven that you are not loyal. Tell you what, ‘How loyal were you to her in the first place?’

How does another man get to steal ‘your’ woman?

It is very easy actually; he does what you refuse to do for her.

Ignoring her calls, taking ten hours to reply to her text-it is not that she does not have other people to talk to, they are there. She is choosing to ignore them but she will eventually just get bored and reply. Waiting for you to invite her out but you choose to be with other people while she waits at home, trust me, there is someone waiting for her to accept a lunch date. Those days you tell her you are too busy consecutively, she will accept.

Someone else is paying attention to her, while you are not. Someone else is doing what you do not think she is worthy of.

That is why dating is important for me and for women. My friend saw an asshole before I did, because I was too busy making up excuses for the man. As a woman, if you have a really good friend that you trust, talk to her and tell her to tell you the truth. A man will not treat you better in a relationship, if he cannot treat you nicely right now. He will not suddenly have an epiphany after you wait around or keep doing things to gain that acknowledgement. Once a d… (I do not want to say dog because we keep insulting dogs and they are so loyal), okay, once something is awful, it is awful.

I do not want to wait around for a man to appreciate me, you should not either. If he keeps making you wait around, move on my dear. Loneliness can be a bad incentive into poor relationships and situations but once you get used to it, it opens you to a lot of things. Then you do realize, you cannot be wasting your time on someone like that. Move on, if a man shames you for it that is his problem to deal with not yours; because you really do deserve better.
