What some men do to make ladies notice them

07 September 2016, 12:19Shakila Alivitsa

Abuja - There is this man that makes my blood boil; even at the moment it is boiling. Not boiling hot with lust or love no; but boiling hot as in I would really like to slap him every time I see him.

This man does not even have to do anything other than just walk into a room; his presence annoys me. The worst part is, I always give him a clean slate but he always manages to ruin it.

Let me give you today’s scenario. He sends someone to me on official business and tells them look for a woman called Priscilla. So now I am looking for someone called Priscilla because I don’t want to have a mix up. But turns out the man knew what he was doing and intentionally sent someone to me but confused the name- the man knows my name. So he has made me go on a circus trail while he was pulling his usual stunts.

The second worst part is that he is doing all this to get closer to me. Trust me; I intensely dislike him so honestly; it does not have to get lost in translation- he knows!

When they say women are from Venus and men are from Mars it is because that is literally true; in what would will being a jerk and a complete dumbass make me want to be with you? I am sure in his own way of thinking he did that to see that if I would care but I honestly don’t care what he calls me because I am immune to his existence but I dislike the fact that he made me go on a rat race for nothing.

Just another thing to add to his list of sins.

Being inappropriate

If you are doing that purposefully because you have been with a couple that entertained your disrespect; you will never be with a woman who actually respects herself. Second; women don’t like jerks. Girls can deal with jerks but women outgrew them and would like to be with a man that knows the difference. Third, I still don’t like that man even if he applied the above.

Using stunts as compared to direct approach

Are we still in high school? Seriously! Contrary to popular opinion, women are not dumb and they can actually see through bullshit. If you have been using shady tactics to get her attention; she is probably itching to slap you the way I would like to slap this one.

Obviously, there is the indirect approach to try and gage her interest but please try and be adult about it.

When all else fails please, talk about your money and how much of it you have

First he started talking about the food chain. He is apparently a lion- he goes after fresh meat unlike hyenas who go after left overs; that made him a lion. Then after he was done and I was staring at the wall behind him, he started talking about his hobbies and his house and how much he spends on it. Oh, let us not forget he was bragging about some ranch he owns. The whole time I was just thinking, ‘God, I cannot even be with you because I do not like your voice either.’ Now every time I see him I think he has a small wiener.

Some man is just thinking at the moment how I will regret when I am 30, alone, not yet married and wrinkled. Even at forty, I think I will still be cute so I will pass on this one and let whichever lucky lady have him.
