I was dating Luke. I had recently emerged from a 20 year marriage, and the last time I had been single, the
dating landscape was totally different. I had moved to Nairobi but did not know a soul, so my cousin introduced me to a dating website to help me meet new people. I am the sort of person who does nothing by halves, so to really throw myself into the single scenes, I set myself a challenge: 100 dates in 100 days. I filled out my profile and after three days I had over 1000 replies.
I assume it is because I look good on paper. It became a full-time job just wading through them, sifting out the weirdos and identifying the contenders. I did not start dating immediately; I had a strict protocol.
First, we would exchange emails, and then talk on phone for a few weeks, and only if I had gauged that he sounded genuine, I would then arrange a date. I decided to always use the same restaurant; it seemed sensible to be somewhere familiar while meeting strangers. So as to avoid the waiters thinking I was the world’s oldest hooker, I would let them know what I was doing and booked the same table each time – table 14.
They were all lovely and would give me secret thumbs-ups or down to signal whether they thought a date
was going well.
On my first date I did not feel nervous, apart from the creeping doubts everyone has:
“Will he think I am an old toad?”
I had a lovely evening, but I knew he wasn’t quite right for me, so afterward I sent him an email turning him down gently. Only 99 to go.
I spent a good chunk of my day either chatting or emailing people or preparing to go out. You would not believe the number of Marks, Davids, and Stephens in my generation, so I devised a chart to help me remember who was who.
If one rang when I could not recall who he was, I would drink water until I could race back and remind myself who he was.
Since I was a writer, I suffered a little bit. I had to put my novel on hold and turn to write short stories, which were less time-consuming.
I would sometimes organize three or more dates in an evening, a cocktail or early dinner. I’d nip to my car and change between dates-each one deserved a fresh me. I never told anyone that they were one of 100 dates-it would make them feel they were part of the stunt when in reality I was looking for love.
Lots of dates commented I did not eat much. Of course, I did not-I had had another before his.
Once I slipped up when a waiter was describing the specials. I recommended something I had earlier that evening and was only available on that day, much to my date’s bafflement.
I met some fascinating people-doctors, teachers, drivers including going to amazing places. I never grew bored of my endless dates-if I did not feel in the mood at the start of the day, I perked up by the time I was brushing my hair:
this one might be “the one”.
I only went on twelve-second dates and never slept with any of them. None of them made my heart leap. I was looking for true love by experimenting with all these dates to assess the various men I met. The funniest thing about these dates was that sometimes I spend all the bills using my cash. The only thing I wanted is the man’s presence and that’s was all. I wanted to find someone I can live with the rest of my life and at least curb the loneliness I had for all that moment.
One weekend I decided not to go for a date. I spend my time just indoors.
On a certain local TV station, I saw an advertisement that if you got dating problems and love spells your problems are already solved by the Kiwanga Doctors. I keenly followed their website, www.kiwangadoctors.com, and followed various
testimonials of people who had problems like mine which later were solved. The next morning I took a flight to Kericho where the Kiwanga Doctors’ offices were located.
A week later after visiting the Kiwanga Doctors, someone called me. He was called Jack. We decided to meet at the restaurant to know each other more. I could not stop looking at his crinkly blue eyes. We talked until the bar shut. Three
weeks later we married off. Six of my 100 dates came on my wedding day. I really thank Kiwanga
Doctors for ending my love spell. Thumbs up to Kiwanga Doctors for through you I got the love of my
