So I just came across a book about successfully getting the girl, and it was sexist and I can honestly say that it might have been written by a douche bag. Reading it made my blood boil. So I thought, if guys really need help, I’m willing to shed some light.
Of course, I’m not an expert. I don’t have a degree on women nor have I done research on it. But I am a woman and I have friends and family who are women. So I’m guessing I know at least something about how to pursue them. 😉
I’ll probably make it a series so I will prepare an outline later tonight before I publish said topics. Just so I don’t have a messy discussion of articles.
I also encourage you to publish one or maybe comment on what you think. Girls are different and your opinion may help them guys get the girls properly. ☺
Til my next post,
It’s been a while since I last read a physical book. It was nice to do it again. 😊 The smell of old books is really relaxing. I bought this book on a sale, but it looks nice.
The book is titled Dragon Slippers, written by Jessica Day George. I think there is a second book titled “Dragon Flight”. I would probably have to scour book sales and secondhand bookstores just to find it. 😄
The story started slow but I was hooked by the unexpected twists and turns. This is basically just me listing down my reactions to the story.
Spoilers ahead! ⚠⚠⚠
As I approach my 25th year (turned 24 last June but you know “technically” I’m getting there), I feel like I have hit a point in my life where everything just stops. And there’s a crossroad.
Two years ago, I was repeatedly asking life to just pause. And in a way, it did. However, I realized that pausing my life didn’t do me good. I still didn’t get the rest I need. I didn’t really pause. I was still working. I was still feeling guilty every time I try to do something recreational. I still feel like I should be doing something to earn or to improve my skills.
While my friends are out partying or just going with their friends, I was at home. Either doing chores, browsing social media, reading a book or streaming a TV show. I mean, I kind of enjoyed doing those, but whenever “people” tell me I should go out, I begin to doubt myself. I start to think that maybe I’m wasting my life.
But the thing is, I actually don’t like going out. It’s starting to irritate me as I feel like I HAVE TO go out. When in actuality, I really didn’t want to. They make me doubt the things I do. Am I wasting my life if I don’t go out with friends? Is it wrong to just stay home where there’s a soft bed, cuddly pillows and a fuzzy blanket?
I recently started following a page about being unbusy. It promotes unplugging and taking time to just be. However, I’m still uncertain if I agree with everything, especially the part where they say I must go experience nature. I mean I like nature — the stars, the smell of fresh air, those kinda things — but I don’t exactly love camping in the woods. I have lived almost my whole life with trees and plants and mosquitos. No, thank you.
Then comes the part where I realize I don’t need to listen to anyone. I don’t have to follow anyone’s advice. That I can just be myself and do what I enjoy. But what if the things I enjoy doesn’t make me “improve” myself? Should I continue being myself or should I follow others’ advice?
Dammit. Life is so complicated.
You want me to open up
Then you tell me to shut up.
You ask me what’s wrong,
then tell me to just move on.
You confuse me with your care
Say you love me, you swear.
But I gotta wait when I ask for your time,
If I insist, it’s a crime.
You make me go crazy.
Your friends think I’m so clingy.
No need to be treated like a princess,
Don’t need saving, ain’t a damsel in distress.
I just want your attention,
Shower me with affection.
Show me that you really care.
Listen to me, don’t hear.
I used to seek approval for everything I do
But I was a loner nonetheless.
Then I met you.
My life changed, I confess.
Your presence and care, I craved.
You’ve made me want a piece of your soul.
Only some of it, you gave.
But somehow, you have made me whole.
Then you left.
I was broken.
Your promise unkept.
You’re never to be seen again.
I shouldn’t have met you.
I should have bid you adieu.
I should have guarded my heart, too.
I shouldn’t have met you.

Dear Future Self,
I hope you are feeling fine.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Don’t be afraid of crossing the line.
The sense of impending doom you feel
It doesn’t really go away.
It just tucks itself away from what’s real
Then comes out some other day.
Don’t be afraid of breaking down.
It’s just yourself telling you it’s tired.
Don’t push away the meltdown.
Instead, rest and come out inspired.
Use those feelings to move yourself forward.
Don’t let it manipulate and control you.
Don’t let it make you feel cornered.
Be strong. Breathe and stay true.
