Putting your heart on the sleeve to ask some you like if they are already in a relationship is scary. But as we would have it, Kenyan men have found the funniest ways to find out if their person of interest is taken.
Here are some typical ways Kenyans ask if you've got a boyfriend.
Nikupigie usiku ama bwana atakasirika – Should I call you tonight? Or your husband will be upset?
Mtu wako anakupeleka aje? - How’s your guy treating you?
Kuna goalkeeper kwa team ama ni join hiyo game? - Is there a goal keeper in your team or I can fill the space?
Sioni pete - I don’t see a ring...
Unaharaka ya kuenda ama kuna watoto wanangoja uwalishe? – You seem to be in a bit of a hurry, or do you have children waiting at home?
Unakaa kukuwa na mastory poa, si unipee number nikutafute ama chali yako ata dinda? - You’ve got some really good vibes, how about you give me your number? Or your guy will be upset?
Naweza kukatia ama usha olewa? - Can I flirt with you or you’re already married.
Nakuonanga ukipita hapa kila siku leo nimefikirie nikuongeleshe. Uko sawa madam, si unipee number ama chali yako atanipiga? - I’ve seen you pass by here every day and I think you look great, can you give me your number or you’re boyfriend will be upset?
Tunaweka kuwa mabeshte tu ama nikutie? - We can just be friends or you don't mind me flirting with you?
