When a man likes you, he will call you every evening and ask how your day was. He will not complain about having to be the one calling all the time. He will force you to say you love him at the end of the call. He will invite you over to his house on weekends, and lure you with “nitakupikia”. He will wash the house and tidy up before you arrive. He will make you a nice meal and serve you a glass of wine, or some coke or sprite soda. On other days, he will ask you out for bowling at Village Market. His friends will come and he will introduce you and refer to you as ‘mama’ or ‘ mine’ depending on your love.
When a man really likes you, he’ll get jealous when a huge bearded man tries to hit on you in the club. He will ask you to keep off, or even say he’s had enough and that you should go home, or he’ll try to pick a fight, depending on how drunk he is.
When a man really likes you, he’ll ask you to dress sexy for him, once in a while. He will make love to you vigorously but passionately. He will ignore his DMS that night. He will give you undivided attention and love. He will let you wear his favourite white shirt, even though he didn’t want to wash it again.
When a man really likes you, he will not be ashamed to rush to the supermarket and get you sanitary pads. He will say it is a natural process and won’t mind when you soil his sheets. He will allow you to point out that his plates are old, and need to be changed, and that his towel is too worn out.
He will get upset when you fight. He will send you messages on WhatsApp and maybe delete them. He will apologize when he is wrong. He will be mad that you have a bestie and demand to be your best friend. He will pause his FIFA game to respond to your message. He will buy you a nice dress on your birthday too, and he will also remember your milestones.
Long story short, when a man really likes you, you’ll know.
