Curve balls in relationships

Curve balls in relationships

I thought I’d heard it all! This lady at the party was loudly bragging about her lover (another woman), because she realized that men weren’t ‘all that’! She claimed to have made the drastic change because women ‘get’ one another, with no explanations. “Women are expressive, not hard, like men. If am emotional, she doesn’t keep harassing me to style up and swallow it. She gets my bad days. She reaches out when am moody”. Clearly, the drink had got the better of her. Not that the ‘highly praised’ companion was any better!!! The room… Continue reading →

Cheating Women

Cheating Women

This is one of the most controversial topics that I avoid as the plague but here goes. Women cheat and there is no two ways about it. The percentage that does not cheat is like 15% (that’s my rough estimate). I had a long think about this. The time we women sit around each other saying its girl time, it’s all about our husbands, our boyfriends, how the sex was so awful, how we think that our men are cheating on us and how scandalous the bitch he is sleeping with is ugly as hell. It… Continue reading →

But…what if he likes me?!?

But…what if he likes me?!?

I bumped into this tweet by @MikeMunyi a few hours ago, and at first I felt slightly offended. It seemed like a huge generalization, while at the same time, it seemed to point directly at me. But then I took a moment to think about it, and there’s actually a lot of truth in that statement. I’m not sure why it rings so true. Speaking for myself, it’s pretty straightforward. I turn 30 in a few days, so my bio-clock should be roaring as I’m nearer to my sell-by-date. Luckily for me, I had my… Continue reading →

Of Men and Ambitious Spouses

Of Men and Ambitious Spouses

Well, it is known that ambition can creep as well as soar.” Edmund Burke ‘When I grow up I want to conquer the world, I’ve got to have my own job, my own car, and my own crib. I’ve got to be my own woman, totally independent.’ A group of young girls at a teenage workshop made these strong statements. It exhilarated me to see the determination that these young women had. Despite my support for their enthusiasm at living fruitful lives, it got my mind wondering of the older generation. Women who have stood… Continue reading →

Looking for Kenyan husbands … ?

Looking for Kenyan husbands … ?

For few weeks now, I’ve seen a banner in my facebook sidebar. It shows a pretty lady in a yellow dress, and the text says something about ministries that help women get married. I didn’t pay much attention to it, since I’m in no hurry to walk down that aisle. But then over the weekend, I heard about this event at KICC. Apparently, a Nigerian Broda was giving a sermon on how to catch a husband in six seconds or less. He preached for four hours, and promised the women up to four proposals by… Continue reading →

This Woman’s Worth?

This Woman’s Worth?

These last few days, I found out what my apparent worth is. First, it was my male cousin – who has been drunk every single time we’ve met this year, btw. Anyway, he found it in his charge to give me advice for my life; something about purchasing land and blah blah blah. He wasn’t done yet though: he leaned closer to me, stinky breath and all, and half whispered that he was “ahead of me” because he had two children and I had none. Oooouuuucccchhhhh!!!! Did that hurt you just a bit? I was momentarily stunned and… Continue reading →

Of Men vs Women [Part 4]

Of Men vs Women [Part 4]

Its one of those Wednesdays. Shirley is busy packing her numerous belongings into her hand bag while bidding her colleagues good evening. She often thinks of quitting this Bank Teller job, but some days stand out more than most. Like today for instance. It takes 4 days for a cheque to mature! Simple and Clear. So why would a grown up man, bring his ugly face to the bank two days later!? As if that’s not enough, claim that the bank is too slow, and try to debate bank policy with her, a mere bank… Continue reading →

Simply Flourish: The Uniqueness of a Woman

Simply Flourish: The Uniqueness of a Woman

You are unique – your affections, tastes, appetites, execution style etc. God built you with love and with particular care. You are delicate, sensitive, absorbent. You are spirit, soul and body. You are a receptor – very open to external stimuli; a flower (sensitive intuitive expressive reflective) therefore guard your space and environments very carefully and diligently (constantly watchful) You are a “wombed” man (emotional, physical, spiritual wombs). Each of these brings forth life/fruit. Your design is in-born : you have a unique ‘circuitry’ to women – progesterone and oestrogen, minimal body hair, softer voice,… Continue reading →

Simply Flourish: A Woman’s Communication Style

Simply Flourish: A Woman’s Communication Style

1. THE WOMAN IS AN “EMOTIONAL FEELER” She assesses verbal and non verbal communication MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY AT THE SAME TIME. The man uses these functions separately. She processes facts and feelings simultaneously influencing her perspective on the world around her plus what’s communicated to her. A woman does not need to apologize for her emotions! God made her to feel!!! God gave females to males so males could have BALANCE. 2. SHE ALWAYS REMEMBERS Women usually don’t forget things while men have to be reminded over and over. She may bring up a past… Continue reading →

Woman: The Superior Being

Woman: The Superior Being

I watched Maina Kageni on Capital Talk on K24 (Oooool Kenyan, Oooool the time don’t you just love Jeff Koinange?) and what I was hearing was complaints, complaints, and more complaints. According to Maina men are letting their women down and the ladies are complaining to Maina now the hubbys are complaining about Maina. What is it that men in our society are doing wrong? Women are complaining everywhere the young and old alike. I can remember growing up I was constantly reminded how men are devious and liars, that they tell you everything you… Continue reading →
