Listen Up Ladies


(I’m holding a mirror as I write this, just so everyone knows.)

Quit!  Quit choosing the men who treat you like dirt.  The ones who talk to you like you’re worth nothing more than a piece of a$$.  Quit giving them your precious, precious time.  They sure aren’t worth it.  Quit giving them chances after they screw it up the first time, the second time, the third time.  Quit letting them get that third opportunity to hurt you.  Once I get… twice I get.  Three times is too many.  Quit believing their apologies and promises.  If they didn’t fix it after the second time, by the third time, they just know they can say those sweet words to you and you’ll come running.  Gentlemen don’t start with sexual innuendos.  They start with conversation.  Real, get to know you conversation.  They ask you for pictures of your smile because it makes them smile.  Not of your butt or your boobs because… well we all know what that does.  Quit being a piece of meat or a game for them.  If they’re just chasing you because they want to get laid, you’ll feel it.  Go with that gut feeling!!  It will tell you what you already know, what you know and aren’t listening to!  If you hear that voice in your head saying “Get out,”  GET OUT!!  Quit settling for the guys who don’t treat you like you deserve.  If he isn’t willing to woo you, and he just wants to hang out at home, right from the beginning, no, he’s not worth it.  Hanging out at home after a while comes from being comfortable.  Doing it right from the beginning comes from laziness and them realizing that they don’t have to work for it.  Make them work for it!!!

Men.  Grow up.  MAN UP.  Start treating us the way we deserve!  Woo us.  We’re worth it.  We’re sweet and vulnerable, and we need someone to show us we’re valuable!

Women, when the men man up and open the door for you, try to woo you, put effort into making you feel like you’re worth something, FREAKING SAY THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

This is a rather random rant.  Hope you enjoyed.  I’m gonna go bang my head on my desk.
