I have a brand new pet peeve, and it is when people think that what makes them happy will also make me happy. I am not your average, everyday type of a person, and I never will be. It seems like every female around my age wants one thing: marriage, and I am going to have to pass on that right now. I am not the kind of woman you can easily domesticate period. I will never settle. EVER! I have seen people settle with my own two eyes and watched how miserable they became, and I will not make the same mistakes. I will marry someone I am crazy about and accepts me for who I am. When that guy comes into my life that will be great, but I am happy regardless. I am incredibly independent and suffer from this horrible condition called high self-esteem.
Let me tell you this, just because you enjoy eating chocolate cake does not mean I enjoy it. You cannot always assume everyone wants what you want, because we are all unique and that is what makes the world go round. I am tired of being asked have I found a boyfriend yet? I am sick of hearing about marriage. I am an intelligent, sarcastic, outgoing, funny chick who is not worried about a biological clock, because when God created me he forgot to add that in. When I find someone that compliments my personality and doesn’t disrespect me or try to use me then I will tie the knot! I have so many goals I want to achieve and marriage is not high on the list at the moment.
Bottom line is we all have different wants/desires and you cannot think others want what you want.
Now that I am in my mid-twenties, weddings, engagements and pregnancy photographs are flooding my newsfeed on Facebook, and I honestly find them lame. If I ended up married in some suburb with a few kids, I would probably get a pistol and blow my brains out, because being average just isnt in my blood. I do not understand how women of my generation think so backwards, or maybe it is not them, and its me with the strange thoughts.
I think it is important to be ambitious, and women that want to end up sitting on their asses wiping baby snot all day just doesnt cut it. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand the biological desire to reproduce, but if your sole goal in life is to raise babies I think you are weird. How could you possibly want some guy to financially support you? You do realize 50% of marriages will end in divorce, and if you didnt marry a rich guy after the divorce you will be screwed. The workforce is CONSTANTLY changing, and if you cannot keep up you will get trampled on by those that can.
I have family members that are divorced, however they always maintained a good job, so when the divorce was finalized they did not need to worry about money, because they had their own. Ladies it is 2013, time you wake up smell the fucking coffee, get educated and chase a career, because the truth is men like women with their shit together. They are more intriguing and insightful. This is why I cannot just be some dudes wife in a lame suburb raising children, it just isnt me, I would end up unhappy.
At first glance you make think I am shallow, mean, and superficial, however I believe I am human and only doing what genetics forced me to do. I would never marry someone that is ugly, because I believe you have to be physically attracted to the person you are spending your life. A superficial person marries someone because they are attractive or for their money. This is something I have zero desire to do. It would be a waist of my time, I want someone that has a personality that complements mine, and has an appearance I find attractive.
I also do not believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Most of us know where we stand in terms of our attractiveness level. There is scientific evidence to support that how attractive a human is correlated with their facial features, hip to waist ratio, and skin. People tend to mate within their own attractiveness level, and I do believe this is true, of course there are some exceptions to the rule.
I am sure most people would agree with me that they would not marry someone they did not have physical chemistry with, because that is a disaster waiting to happen! I also would never marry a guy who is not as intelligent as myself. I may act like an idiot, and say foolish things sometimes, but I am quite a brain. I am funny, sarcastic, snarky, and a total spit fire. People like me are tough to handle, which is why I am a pain in the ass to date.
I know one day I will find someone to handle me until than in the words of Madonna, second best is never enough you’ll do much better baby on your own.
