Ladies, you’ve got it all wrong. Believe me, I know how your heart aches. I’ve cried many a night in hopes that “the one” would eventually find me. But the truth is that its your own fault; OUR own fault. Although I still blame men to a large degree, we are perpetuating our own heartbreak. Take a look at the boy in the photo. Sure, he’s cute. He’s probably a lot of fun and great in bed. He has great style and taste: in music, in clothing, and in what he does to you with his tongue when the lights go out. He’s gorgeous, and just bad enough be tempting without a (too terrifying) criminal record. Ladies, have you forgotten the future? The big picture? Instead of questing this boy’s interest in rock music or body modifications, inquire about his college degree, his dream of entrepreneurship, or his hopes to be the boss of his favorite company when he turns 35. Ask this boy if those uncoverable tattoos might hold him back from his dream of being CEO. Wonder whether he has enough sense to hold together a household when a wife and child are involved. Question his goals, and hope that he’s attempting to reach them. I’m not saying that boys with tattoos, stretched ears, and greased hair cannot be geniuses with bright futures. What I AM asking is that us ladies begin to question the mind that created that killer hair-do and outfit. If your only boyfriend qualifications include details on a man’s style, music taste, bars of choice, and favorite cult films, prepare yourself for heartbreak. Unless you can begin to add words such as “bright future,” “introspective,” “driven,” and “dynamic” to that list, you might as well ruin your mascara before its halfway finished.
Oh good fucking god.
So glad I’m not after the cookie-cutter suburbanite lifestyle this post is promoting.
I honestly don’t understand human beings who are so limited as to make their life about a household, marriage, and kids.
Go join the rest of the sheep over there.
I’ll be over here living my dreams, nothing and no one can hold anyone back. Only ones who get held back, are the ones who fall into the trap of this outdated mindset.
