Ladies: So what if the man you loved chose another woman? - Nairobi News

I shouldn’t even be writing about this, but it’s driving me crazy. I think nuts describes it much better. But on a serious note, men think they can walk into our lives and walk out as they please. It’s really annoying!

With that in mind, and anger aside, here is my story.

Sigh! I was dating this guy who was also dating another girl. For your information, I wasn’t aware of it because every time we were together we would have these pillow talks; “you know what I mean,” he would say of how we so have much in common, how nothing or no one would come in between us, how much he enjoyed my company.

He would actually tease me and we would end up running around his house and eventually get down to grown up business. A stone’s throw away ahead I could actually see ‘Canaan’ and I resisted everything and anyone who was interfering with my vision to the land of milk and honey, and, yes, I fell for it.

I fell for it even more because the last time we went out we had an amazing time and it really felt like – at least for me – that we had reached a moving forward point.

We communicated often and with this you know your usual silly texts of “Have you eaten?”, “How was your day?”, “I miss you even more”, random love messages… the list was endless.

I could actually admit that all this not only gave me goosebumps but I also smiled uncontrollably. If you knew me, you would actually see that I was in love.

ROMANTIC DATE

On this particular occasion, I told him we should go out for dinner, then later hang out at our usual joint, Jikonis. I was anticipating his company but more so the Gilbey’s Gin with tonic and lemons kama kawaida. So when he agreed to it I was even more excited

As we got closer to the day of our date, he said we needed to talk. This actually scared the sh**t out of me because I have heard it with my girlfriends, when a woman says we need to talk, then something nasty is about to go down and at this particular scenario it was my boyfriend.

Obviously that was even worse, actually it sounded horrific in my ears. Thankfully, my mum taught me well on how to keep calm and let things unfold at their own pace.

He said that the times that he spent with me were very special to him. Every time we went out it just got better and better and he was not expecting that. He said I’m the finest woman who ever came into his life and I will always be special for that.

That I came into his life at a very trying time and I lifted his spirits, put him in a better place and kept him on track and a lot of bullshit excuses that I couldn’t fathom at that moment. All I can remember were the tears of anger and the slap that ...
