Well because I can give them my low down dirty truth about Nairobi and its NON EXISTENT yes I said non existent dating scene (as far as I and 8 other girls are concerned). You know how am always telling you about how I love the men in my life for the lessons and « special » love they are always imparting on me? Oh yes, I got it, I love the men in my life: Nairobi edition BECAUSE, well they make me appreciate the past men in my life and anticipate the future ones too.
So yes 8 out of 10 girls I know think that Kenya, Nairobi needs an injection of Men, not males, not boys MEN! They make me see that there can always be worse out there… And if you feel am exaggerating, then show me different The observer He will sit at the bar all night…OBSERVING you. Always, but will never approach you and will not even buy you a drink. He could have been picked straight out of a music video with the stylist forgetting to adjust his accoutrement…He talks to you in an accent that you can’t quite identify…

Hangs around the usual spots; Westlands, brew bistro – he is supposedly chic, hangs around his own type and well is assumed to make lots of money.
Sometimes cute, but never around long enough; always traveling or just here for a 6 month contract.
And well often times just isn’t your type or hangs around his own kind.
I have nothing against the expats; am sometimes considered one myself.
The ‘wannabe’ expat He is the one Kenyan guy that only has expat friends.
