Betty Kyallo has now decided to keep her love life off social media drawing lessons from past mistakes that came at a big cost.
The media personality opened up about the joys and challenges of keeping her love life private, saying it gives her the freedom to be herself in public.
Betty further emphasized on the lessons she has learned from publicizing her past relationships, acknowledging that putting her personal life in the public domain has come at a cost.
“I’m actually enjoying dating on the low because when you put your person up on ni mapressure tu,” Betty Kyallo said while speaking at the recent relaunch of TV47.
She said dating someone in the public eye comes with added expectations and pressures from the media and fans, making it challenging to maintain a sense of authenticity and intimacy.
Betty noted that it was important to take time to get to know her partner and protect their relationship from public scrutiny.
She emphasized that she wanted to avoid rushing into anything and chose to go slow to truly understand her partner’s compatibility and intentions.
“I feel like if I really want to know somebody, I owe it to myself to just kwenda pole pole sana,” she said.
The mother of one added that her current boyfriend has been supportive of her decision to keep their relationship low-key, which she views as a positive sign in their journey together.
“If my partner was not okay with us dating chini ya maji, it would be like a red flag. Because why do you wanna be known, why do you wanna be out there? So until maybe we get married or maybe after a few years, that’s when I would be comfortable putting them out there,” Betty said.
