Embarking on the intricate journey of relationships often resembles a graceful dance, but what occurs when you discover yourself executing a solo routine on the love-filled dance floor?

For those navigating Nairobi’s dating scenes, tales and personal experiences of being in a relationship alone are not uncommon. The question arises: what are the signs that indicate you might be in this solo relationship scenario?

Message Mirage

Sending heartfelt messages, only to receive responses drier than Nairobi’s arid weather. Your partner’s response time is akin to the pace of a tortoise in a marathon.

Social Media Ghosting

Your social media profiles narrate a flourishing love story, but your partner’s digital presence resembles a deserted island.

While you actively update a couple of pictures, they seem to vanish mysteriously in the virtual world.

Invisible Plus One at Events

Attending events together, yet feeling like you brought an invisible plus one.

Frequently fielding the question, “Where’s your significant other?” with explanations for their perpetual absence.

Future Plans Fog

Initiating discussions about plans leads to masterful vagueness from your partner.

Planning feels more like organizing a solo world tour, with the content to play the role of an eager audience member.

One-Sided Celebrations

Orchestrating surprise dates and special occasions, only to find reciprocity as rare as a shooting star.

Your birthday arrives, and you’re left pondering if they overlooked setting a calendar reminder.

Decision Dilemmas

Making decisions becomes a solo expedition, whether it’s choosing movies or planning weekend escapades.

Your partner oscillates between indifference and perpetual preoccupation when decisions need to be made.

Solo Support System

Acting as the go-to person for support, but your calls for a listening ear fall on deaf ears.

It’s a one-way street when it comes to being each other’s pillar of strength.

Emotional Rollercoaster

Your emotional highs and lows met with a consistent baseline from your partner.

It feels like riding a rollercoaster alone, with occasional glances from the sidelines.
