I think it’s time for another ridiculously high standard, don’t you? This time around it’s Attitude. Appreciation vs. Awe. We all know that the guys who don’t care and don’t call automatically suck. But what about the ones that care too much?
It’s really nice when someone obviously appreciates what’s great about me. But automatically putting me on a pedestal gets a bit unnerving. This is probably why I end up falling for the jackasses. They’re the only ones who will call me on my bullshit. And there will be bullshit. It wouldn’t be me if there weren’t some totally ridiculous component to all of this.
So you think I’m the prettiest, smartest, sexiest, best dressed, most well read, the list goes on and on… girl who’s ever bothered saying “hi” to you? Well then how do you like the fact that I haven’t actually shaved my legs since the last new moon? You think that’s cute and not icky? Ooooookay then. Or what about the fact that I’m a relentless TV junkie? You think it’s a-ok, or even great that I waste far too much of my time sitting in front of the boob tube? You wouldn’t rather go outside for a walk (even though I know you hate TV)? I made shrimp fried rice for dinner! What? You’re allergic to shellfish? You’ll eat it anyway? OK THEN! DIG IN!
A hint to all the guys out there – DO NOT BE AFRAID TO BE YOURSELF! If you think something is silly, or annoying, or have any other sort of opinion, SHARE IT! Believe it or not, it’s more attractive of you can appreciate certain aspects of my personality and maybe not like others so much, but still dig me as a person instead of blindly thinking every single stinkin’ thing about me is the best thing to happen to the world since TiVo.
Bottom line, if you act like “you’re not worthy” all the time, I’ll start to think you probably aren’t.
