This is another crazy converstation I had with my kid sister,the things she talks to me are buffling!

Men I will Avoid Like The Plague This

"The kind of a guy I will give a chance this year is a corporate eagle with a promising future and it will help if he smells of designer cologne.She began to tell me." I know I have been on this dating matter for quite a while now.I should probably pack up my six-inch heels and stop whining on national newspaper about my dating woes.But I will not close this dating chapter without an encore. I have one last thing to say to you about dating and then i will be done.The year 2015 holds tonnes of promises for me.This will be the period I will finally land my six-foot-three-inches handsome prince charming who drinks either fine whisky or White Cap Lite,drives a sleek silver Mercedes Benz, smells great and wears a navy blue hat on weekends.
But as I embark on my dating journey,i have come up with a clear-cut list of blokes that I will steer clear of this year and hopefully,this list will help me sift through the myriad of suitors at my door,separating the cads from the gentlemen".
Then she goes ahead to name her so-called list of people to avoid:
1.The Braggart
2.The Preacher
3.The Politician

The Braggart

On a ridiculously hot Tuesday afternoon in early November last year,I met a guy in traffic.I winked at him and he smiled back.He gave his card to the newspaper vendor to bring it to me and I signalled him that i would call him before speeding off the Uhuru Highway.I did call him a week later,and we met a day later at Java House Kimathi Street in Nairobi.That was one of the horrible dates I have ever been.
He was a single guy in his early 30 's.He was doing very well for himself as a 'tenderprenuer'.The people who win tenders to supply the government with Biro pens,surgical gloves and cotton wool and make millions overnight. He was devastatingly handsome,quite tall with a body I would have loved to see without a shirt on.It was all fun and games until he started name-dropping and bragging about how he had lunch with Gatundu-South MP and dinner with Nairobi Governor.I was falling over myself with lust until he told me how he landed a government tender worth Sh38 million and he assured me that I was not dating 'a loser'; of course I didn't mind that he plays golf on Tuesdays with CEOs at Windsor Hotel,but I did mind every minute he spent reminding me how much money he had.
We went for a second date and he started bragging about me to his friends, introducing me as,here she is! I know it doesn't sound like 'a brag' but trust me you should have seen the sparkle in his eye and proud smile as he made me the object of pride.So this year I am keeping off the braggarts who like remind me that the Deputy President's personal assistant is pestering him for a meeting.

The Preacher

A good friend of mine once told me that if I wanted a boyfriend,church would be a nice place to start.The men there are cool,calm and nice.They don't drink alcohol and they don't smoke shisha.They love Jesus and they will raise my children in the ways of the Lord.Right? Wrong! I will not say that I took his advice,but what I will tell you is that I started opening my eyes a little wider when I was in church.God was on my side and I chanced upon a fairly good looking 34-year old lawyer.He seemed like the kind of guy dad would approve of; goes to church,impressive investment portfolio and like most of them there,doesn't drink alcohol.Okay,he drinks whiskey but in moderation.
Well,at least that is what he told me and did when we went out together on Friday nights.I thought I had landed 'the one' until one day I discovered that he had a baby mama and an eight year-old son in another city that he had 'forgotten' to mention! The idiot was married and there he was,on the second date preaching to me about purity and the importance of keeping ourselves pure in the Lord as we wait for our holy union.This year,I am staying clear of hypocrites who preach by day and tryst by night.

The Politician

There is a crop of hip and young politicians who are ambitious and doing quite well for themselves.While a few are married,looking for wives to be their 'first ladies' and what single city girls would not fancy a young and promising politician? That would be me.Politicians especially members of the county assembly are not in my radar of dating.Libidinous law makers; those finger-biting MPs need not bother with me.
I will categories the married men with the politicians because married men are just like politicians-selfish liars who want you to share them but won't agree to share you.So married men,don't call or text me in 2015. And those who go against this directive will be named and shamed on this space". My sister,before concluding continued to tell me;
"My kind of man this year-2015 ,is a well-read and intellectually nimble gentleman,one's whose fragrance will last on my beddings-for long".

What do you say when she is done here?
And there you win my dear girl, a real man is not judged by the number of followers on Instagram,but by the amount of wealth he acquires in his youth.I am an older man but you make me feel challenged to work even harder,atleast to leave a stronger legacy.

Without DR DAHIRU a lot of people would have been dead through heart break. My case is not different from heart break, I am married woman with 3 kids and there was a time when i was having problem with my husband because he was having an affair outside our marriage and this was making me feel bad. So i tried finding solution to my problem by reading a lot of relationship tips on the internet and that was how i came in contact with DR DAHIRU contact details and through the help of DR DAHIRU at arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com my husband left the girl he was having affair with and he came back to me and our kids. After a job well done by DR DAHIRU i felt that it will be unfair if i keep this secret to myself and that is why i am going to drop the contact details of DR DAHIRU right now,or you can also reach him via this email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com
