I sat here today watching The Mirror has two faces and it came to me. They always give the impression that boy meets girl, boy and girl have a disagreement which ends the relationship. Boy/girl realizes they can’t live without the other person. They get back together and lived happily ever after. It’s all bullshit.
If someone is taking u for granted they continue to take u for granted. If u leave that person, they move onto someone else they can take advantage of because normally they are a selfish ass.
These movies send the message that u need to change the person you are or the person you’re with to be happy. And that it’s actually possible to change another person, I got news for u… unless that person wants to change it’s not happening. I just hate that they push this crap on ppl. They eat it up, believe it and feel like failures when it doesn’t manifest.
Sorry to my dear readers in advance.
I am so sick of reality shows, which are very rarely based in reality… and least (thank God) not mine. What started in the nineties as a fad, has since become this horrible monstrosity. It was bad enough watching complete strangers argue over bullshit but now, “b” to “d” list actors are getting in on it. Why, u may ask, do they annoy me so? One, because they turn celebrities I used to like into these petty, selfish, ego maniacs. Okay, maybe they don’t actually turn them… more like shine a spotlight on their worst qualities. Case in point, Tia and Tamera Mowry. The only thing good about that show is I learned to pronounce their last name. Idk whether it’s editing (I really hope it is) or whether it’s true but Tia comes across as a nasty, selfish bully. She treats her twin like shit and runs through life as if she is the first working mother in history. Tamera comes across as insecure and seems to ALWAYS need Tia’s approval. Don’t get me started about the Kardashians or the Braxtons. I will be so glad when this type of fake tv is off the air. I barely even watch an hour of tv anymore and when I do it’s reruns of shows I grew up on. Please get rid of this crap and take 3D with it.
Ok, I’m done. (Climbing down off soapbox, drops Mic and walks off stage).
Love and Later Day,
I know I haven’t been writing much about my dating life. That’s because sadly, I haven’t had much of one. Not because I haven’t been asked out but because I really haven’t been all that motivated to go out.
The sad truth is most men don’t know how to date. And most women will except anything, so long as they are with someone… anyone. The older women get, the more they are willing to overlook. Unfortunately, because of so many women excepting anything and overlooking so much, the women who don’t (me), come off like we are “high maintenance”. It is not high maintenance to want a guy to have a job and to be motivated to do well. It isn’t high maintenance to want a guy to hold a door or a chair out for me. It is not high maintenance to want to actually go “out” when he asks to see you.
So I haven’t had the patience or energy to date right now. I don’t feel the need to play the role of mother to anyone other my daughters.
Love and Later Days,
