The Good Guys Have Spoken

Stumbled across this on someone’s FB wall recently & I thought it’s fantastic! Hahaha. This goes out to all the ladies out there, especially those who try too hard…who thinks the world revolve around them…and those who have insecurity written all over their faces.

Hear ye…hear ye…

“We guys don’t care if you talk to other guys. 

We don’t care if you’re friends with other guys. 

But when you’re sitting next to us, and some random guy walks into the room and you jump up and tackle him, without even introducing us, yeah, it pisses us off.

It doesn’t help if you sit there and talk to him for 10 minutes without even acknowledging the fact that we’re still there.

We don’t care if a guy calls or texts you, but at 2 in the morning we do get a little concerned. Nothing is that important at 2am that it can’t wait till the morning.

Also, when we tell you you’re pretty/beautiful/gorgeous/cute/stunning, we freakin’ mean it. Don’t tell us we’re wrong. We’ll stop trying to convince you. The sexiest thing about a girl is confidence.

Yeah, you can quote me.

Don’t be mad when we hold the door open. Take advantage of the mood I’m in.

Let us pay for you ! Don’t feel bad. We enjoy doing it. It’s expected. Smile and say thank you.

Kiss us when no one’s watching. If you kiss us when you know somebody’s looking, we’ll be more impressed.

You don’t have to get dressed up for us. If we’re going out with you in the first place, you don’t have to feel the need to wear the shortest skirt you have or put on every kind of make-up you own.

We like you for who you are and not what you are.

Honestly, I think a girl looks more beautiful when she’s just in her PJ’s. Or my t-shirt and boxers, not all dolled up.

Don’t take everything we say seriously. Sarcasm is a beautiful thing. See the beauty in it. Don’t get angry easily.

Stop using magazines/media as your bible. Don’t talk about how hot Chris Brown, Brad Pitt, or Jesse McCartney is in front of us. It’s boring, and we don’t care. You have girlfriends for that.

Whatever happened to the word “handsome” or “beautiful”? I’d be utterly stunned by a girl who greeted me with “Hey handsome!” instead of “Hey baby/stud/cutie/sexy” or whatever else you can think of.

On the other hand I’m not saying I wouldn’t like it either.

Girls, I cannot stress this enough: if you aren’t being treated right by a guy, don’t wait for him to change! Ditch his sorry butt, disgrace to the male population, and find someone who will treat you with utter respect. Someone who will honor your morals.

Someone who will make you smile when you’re at your lowest.

Someone who will care for you even when you make mistakes.

Someone who will love you, no matter how bad you make them feel.

Someone who will stop what they’re doing just to look you in the eyes and say I love you and actually mean it.

Give the nice guys a chance.”

Eat, Pray, Love: Quotes that I Like.

There are so many quotes that I like from there that I can’t just pick one out to put on my status…so I’m putting those that I like here. These were picked from the Elizabeth Gilbert quotes website, since I haven’t read the book yet. Here we go…

“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”
Elizabeth Gilbert

WD: Debatable. But for now, I’m just gonna wallow in its words for some self-consolation…

“This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something. ”
— Elizabeth Gilbert

“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

“It’s better to live your own life imperfectly than to imitate someone else’s perfectly.”
— Elizabeth Gilbert

WD: Oh gosh! I was about to blog something about it…a bugging thought recently. I couldn’t have said it better.

“There’s a crack (or cracks) in everyone…that’s how the light of God gets in.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

“Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face. You really need to be certain it’s what you want before you commit.”
— Elizabeth Gilbert

“One thing I do know about intimacy is that there are certain natural laws which govern the sexual experience of two people, and that these laws cannot be budged any more than gravity can be negotiated with. To feel physically comfortable with someone else’s body is not a decision you can make. It has very little to do with how two people think or act or talk or even look. The mysterious magnet is either there, buried somewhere deep behind the sternum, or it is not. When it isn’t there (as I have learned in the past, with heartbreaking clarity) you can no more force it to exist than a surgeon can force a patient’s body to accept a kidney from the wrong donor. My friend Annie says it all comes down to one simple question: “Do you want your belly pressed against this person’s belly forever – or not?”
Elizabeth Gilbert

WD: Hmmmmm…

“Look for God. Look for God like a man with his head on fire looks for water.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

“If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will protect upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

“Faith is believe in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark. If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of our souls, our belief would not be a leap of faith and it would not be a courageous act of humanity; it would just be… a prudent insurance policy.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

WD:  Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. – Hebrews 11:1 NIV. Faith is when you have Jesus Christ in your life. Yes, I am biased. 😉

“As smoking is to the lungs, so is resentment to the soul; even one puff is bad for you.”
Elizabeth Gilbert

29/9 – Food-For-Thought of the Day

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said: “My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee replied: “The one you feed.”

29/9 – Quote of the Day

“When we look at modern men, we have to face the fact that modern men suffer from a kind of poverty of the spirit, which stands in glaring contrast with scientific and technological abundance.

We’ve learned to fly the air as birds, we’ve learned to swim the seas as fish, yet we haven’t learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters.” – Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
