I am hopeless! Yes I am because today, every time I opened my finance book to read I couldn’t. I have been daydreaming all day and am not enjoying it.

I should not have listened to that ‘Firefly’ song by Jimmy Needham. Oh, what do you know! Now that I think about it I have to listen to it as I write this. Now I know I have to write the lyrics as a post. Today is ‘Love bug bite me’ day.

I have never said those words to any one (except of course family or in Swahili). When you say those words in Swahili they just dont sound the same so to me they don’t mean the same thing.

“I love you”

” I penda you”

Those two don’t sound the same at all.

Good thing I never said them because I would probably be an ‘I love You’ slut like Ted in How I met Your Mother. But today I really wanted to say those words to someone but I couldn’t!

Rewind to yesterday night, I was having a conversation with a pal of mine, a guy, and he was telling me how he likes this girl but is not sure whether he should make a move.

If you are a guy and you come to me with such a dilemma, I always tell you to make a move even before I know the details. Because if you do not she never will and something that might have happened will not happen and it may have been a beautiful thing.

So he says he is not ready because he still wants to know her (he’s been knowing her for 8 months, goodness!). So I point that out and he’s like he is not ready financially (they are not getting married tomorrow) so I ask him what would would happen if he never gets a well paying job, would he be single forever? Then he said he was not sure if he liked her because of her personality or because she was kind of famous. So I asked him a few questions and we realized he actually just liked her for who she was. So now he is planning to make a move *fingers crossed* soon.

I always knew there was a matchmaker in me somewhere. Too bad “Kinyozi hajinyoi” (A barber does not shave himself).

So he asks about me and I tell him a few details about the one I set free read here and he asked me a few questions and actually made me realize that I had intimidated him a bit. Fine maybe I had a part to play but he is the guy in this. I thought all guys had this notion that they are hot and no woman can resist them!

So my pal suggests that I  talk to him. Like I would!  Remember the guy who wanted to beat me up here. Anyway I don’t think I want to. I mean if he has not made a move by now he simply has more important things on his mind and I don’t want to be someone else’s seconds anyway.

And I am supposed to have set him free by now, aren’t I?

    As they say you just let them fly,if they come back to your nest then they are yours.Problem is not knowning. I too think saying i love u in swa means less than i luv you.
    P.s had to go back and read about the kissy post. 🙂

    just like trish i also had to read the two posts for the 1st kiss (lol) and the guy who wanted to beat you up, ha ha he has some problems!! Now my mission is to soma all your previous posts 🙂
    Anyhuu I also do not understand some men, those who may seem like they like you, but they dilly dally and do not make any move, which does seem like they have more important things to do. I decided not to take such men seriously, no need.

    Ladies thanks for reading my posts, even though it feels like a lot of ramble. A certain friend told me that these guys are the ones who are really serious coz they want something long term and want to be sure they can provide in the relationship. I, on the other hand, dont care about their intentions!

    Hey Lilburdy,
    This is a very nice article.. I like. There was a point I squinted coz it felt like part of something I’ve ever done. I think it’s about time chics made an initiative to dig things out of the guy’s mind. They too should make a move….
    We like it when we are caught by surprise by a chic and again it’s never interesting to date someone who’s predictable…
    Keep then post’s coming. I’ve RSS’d your page already!
