I was very superficial about the kind of person that I picked. Now the things that I want are companionship, fulfillment, trust, a safe haven and a God-fearing man who is going to love me, and it doesn’t matter in what kind of package they come in. It’s become so hard to date in Kenya.” Kobi Kihara says.
