Life Goes On...........

Men and women are interesting beings I have always thought. It has always been a running argument whether men and women can just be friends. I think in many cases it can be true but there are certain caveats attached to this. You see many times when a dude is being a chic's friend he is operating what I like to refer to as the submarine approach. I'm sure you are all aware of how a submarine can travel submerged under the waves, so deep that it hardly causes a ripple in the surface with the boats hardly detecting their presence. Then all of a sudden torpedoes are launched, ships are sank and up pops the sub! Or in a more apt analogy, she wakes up in bed with the dude next her and the first thing that comes out of her mouth is the chorus of this song.

So basically what I'm saying is that some men instead of being bold and coming out with their intentions, will start out as friends and then ingratiate themselves into a girl's heart (and panties). But we all know that with some women there is little if any chance of jumping out of the friend category and into the boyfriend category, so when some men attempt this move they are given the good old LJBF (let's just be friends) speech. And of course after this speech is delivered one of two things might happen,

1. The dude decides to stay on the scene like a vulture hovering over the calf that is trying to cross the Mara, knowing that one day the calf may just stumble and that is when he will strike.

2. The dude does a cost benefit analysis and decides that him being the chic's "friend" isn't time effective and he pulls a fast fade.

More often than not unless a dude is really whipped or patient, they usually opt for number 2 or move to number 2 after trying number 1 for a while. This is of course not to say that there aren't dudes out there who hang out with chics just for the sake of being friends, there are. But alot of the time when a dude invests a lot of time in a chic past the point of basic friendship ie doing stuff for you, taking you to go shopping, helping you move. Rest assured he is just laying groundwork for something and not being a nice guy (unless he is an emasculated/gay nice guy - I can see the flack coming for that already). So ladies keep an eye out when a dude is giving you more attention than usual, and dudes maybe we should save time and energy and just ask her the immortal question...........shall we shag now or shall we shag later?

Frankly, I'm surprised that I'm not hearing any complaints about this poorly written article. I mean look at that deadline (Kenyan women are gold diggers). Either it's true or Kenyan women just dont care what's said about them. I can only complain so much about the state of Kenyan journalism so I'm going to leave this to the rest of you to discuss.

I'm pretty glad that Friday is here. Going to work really bores me, it's like running on a hamster wheel I tell you. But since I get to bum once in a while, it could be worse; so I'm not going to complain. A workmate is having a small bash, since it's going to be byob; I'll have to bring something appropriate that won't burn a hole in my pocket. I shall also make sure that I leave my Kenyan tendancies at the door. Don't be coy, you know what I'm talking about; you peeps who go to byob carrying a bottle of Kenya Cane but walk out at the end of the night with a bottle of Absolut Vodka!

ps: I had a very interesting experience last weekend (and no it did not involve sex, so get your mind out of the gutter!). It's one of those experiences blogging can't do justice, so I guess I can only share with people I hang out with in person.

Have a nice weekend and stay out of trouble.

Lmao on the hamster wheel, i so feel you am having simila issues. Getting outta bed is a real chore but bills await.
The friends thing might work depends on the parties. CFA, now that is full digging a hole.
Now how about that story you know where to find me.

dude, very true on the chick versus man analogy. even after partaking of the goods, dude still effects a number two in case strokes or the bile from the long chase are overwhelming.

about that story, son, what if its true?

absolutely that's just what i needed this monday morning(guess i read this late)and by the way chics;there is no a 'friend thingi' 98% of the time with dudes,its more of a stage in strategic positioning.

Ive always known that rule but chose to ignore it...full benefits without puttin out? who would resist!Damn!! So much hope for me and Joe..

Of all straight guy and chic just friends...99% of them is the guy trying to submarine (Aco, 2008) the chic.

Its a pure waste of time and no guy should do it more than once - I learned my lesson as a teen. Its either we are shagging or if not i treat you like a true pal, no business of taking you shopping etc.

shag first, questions later.

@ Gish
I bet I have more bills than you do lol. But kazi lazima iendelee.
I will hola with that storo all in due time.
@ 33137
Plan B lazima eh? Well you may have a point about the lack of outcry.
@ itchie
Always good to entertain be it one week or one year later.
I do believe a chica and a dude can be pals but sifting the real from the fake is the challenge.
@ nubian queen
Some chicas are smart enough to string a dude around without putting out but eventually even they too are caught up with. But keep on at it....
@ 3M
Submarining works only if you have great timing because once she wekas you in the FRIENDS box, it's game over for you.
Those are lessons best learnt when you are young and have nothing to lose.

About the whole friend thing.....yup! I don't see where flack would come from for the emasculated/gay thing, it seems pretty accurate to me (obviously there are exceptions).

Enjoy the party have a good weekend
