7 Oct

It’s no secret that at times I think very highly of myself. Yes, I have standards and therefore maybe it is a bit more difficult for me in the dating world. I’ve actually had some people refer to me as “too picky.” Well, I’m sorry but, no I’m actually not sorry. Once again, I HAVE STANDARDS and they are not such impossible ones!

Part of the reason is because deep down I know that I will find the right one for me.

How do I know this?

Its not because I’m disillusioned by romantic comedies and am under the misconception that my knight in shining armor is going to swoop in and sweep me off my feet in a series of cheesy romantic gestures.

I would definitely have included a big chunk of the yellow in there

I know that the whole point of those movies is to:

a) Allow girls to think that such a fantasy situation can really exist (“I waited 7 years for you”…yeah ok…because that’s realistic)

b) Unite all the women in the movie theatre in a collective “awwww I want a boyfriend” mode

c) Make any gesture from a guy seem insignificant in comparison to what happened in the movie.

d) Lead to an epidemic of depression.


Now, back to my main argument…

How do I know I will find someone?

Well, it’s because of a little thing called logic… and facebook.

To sum:

If there are people uglier than me getting engaged, then it stands to reason that there is still hope for me! Ahh, the infinite power of logic.

    – both circle charts are the same thing (technically speaking).
    – This paragraph on a post should have been named “The meaning behind (haha i said behind) romantic Comedies”

    too mean? or constructive criticism? you decide

      Actually both charts are not the same thing. The first chart is my opinion on rom coms, the second chart represents the depressed females of the world after watching rom coms.

      And your title choice is too long for my liking and fails to address the main idea of my post.

      Thanks for the constructive but not too constructive criticism 🙂

    Sometimes, I feel the same way. But depending on how full of myself I am that day, and I see someone ugly getting engaged/married – I tend to think “yea, because they don’t have as high of standards as I do. And they were probably desperate”. Is that out of jealousy or cockiness? Eh, maybe a mix of both.

    (Also, 100% agree with you on the “crock of bullshit” feeling. I catch myself saying “oh please!” when watching rom coms!)

    I completely agree with this post and also with willdateforfreefood.

    The card made me laugh out loud, so many times I look at people on my Facebook and I feel awful for thinking that but it is so true.
    I guess I too console myself by saying that their standards are much lower but regardless, always have this fear of ending up alone.

      The worst is when you see an ugly girl with a decent looking guy. That’s a major slap in the face.
