I am so sick of being single I could scream.
I am sick of meeting guys who turn out to be freaks. I am sick of being positive and healthy and putting myself out there only to be jerked around, judged and treated like crap. I am sick of every guy in Los Angeles who is so effing full of himself and what a great catch he is when underneath he is so bloody insecure he has to play games with a woman to see if she'll follow and feed his ego - and if she does then he doesn't want her because clearly if she likes him there must be something wrong with her. OH THE DYSFUNCTION IN THIS TOWN.
I don't want to read books about how I should behave so as not to be treated like crap. I want men to read books on how to be a gentleman, even when you've decided you're not interested. You know, really hard life lessons like COMMUNICATE. BE HONEST. DON'T COME TO DINNER EMPTY HANDED.
I don't want to hear that making dinner for a man too early in a relationship makes him think you're a doormat. As opposed to someone WHO ENJOYS COOKING. I don't want to hear about the "knitting curse." I don't want to feel like I should take two days to answer an e-mail when I can damn well answer it when it comes in. I don't want to act like I have plans when I don't, or feel like I and I alone have to take responsibility for not letting things go too fast.
I don't want to hear how I shouldn't be too nice, how I shouldn't give men the benefit of the doubt, how I should walk away at the slightest male misstep. I don't rush to judgment when presented with potential. I don't want to be Seinfeld, it's a SHOW not a LIFESTYLE. HELLO.
I am sick of smart guys who like dumb women, fat guys who like thin women, and thirty-something guys who want to date little girls.
Take your sexual double standard and SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS. (And this from me, the most conservative woman I know.)
I know who I am. I know what I want. I work hard, I have goals, I dance and do yoga for the soul. I am healthy. I am funny. I am smart. I am able to MULTITASK. I am able to BE RESPECTFUL. IT'S EASY. BEING A GOOD, HEALTHY PERSON IS MOTHER EFFING EASY EASY EASY.
Holy crap, I AM SO SICK OF BEING SINGLE I COULD SCREAM.
