University of Eldoret student Cleophas Kirwa who spoke to admitted that some men in the Uasin Gishu's capital are not ready for the day pointing out lack of enough money to buy a gift for their ‘insatiable’ girlfriends as the main reason.

“In fact, I'm planning to go home from next week, it’s the only tact I can use other than waiting for the very day,” revealed Kirwa.

Uasin Gishu resident John Lagat, 25, revealed that most men fear to get disappointed over the nature of gift they present to their girlfriends as some gift, according to them, might be unworthy or of low value ending up discouraging their better halves.

“It will be charade competition for men to exhibit how well off and romantic on the value of cars, type of gift they present to their women,” Lagat said disclosing that some men fear their weaknesses to be discovered.

Ester Atieno, a resident marriage consultant said that Valentine's day should not be a competition field day for couples in a relationship but time to show love and care for the love ones by devoting time spend with them.

“Women should not take this opportunity to demand much from their men, they have to receive whatever they buy as a gift and remain contented, love is worthy than materials,” noted Atieno.
