13 Reasons You Probably Don't Want To Pursue Me

I am rather difficult.

13 Reasons You Probably Don't Want To Pursue Me
Photography By Jade

Let's lay it all out on the table because really why waste your time or mine if I am just going to raise concerns for you in the future. Honesty is always the best policy and if I'm being honest, I am rather difficult.

I Am Stubborn

My daddy taught me how to fight, how to stick to my guns. To never give up on anything that I do. If I want something, I go get it I put everything I have into pursuing it. So be ready, I don't give up easily.

I Don't Need You

I probably want you but want and need are different. I can do this life all by myself, in fact, I kind of rock at it. If you don't have something truly amazing to add to my life then don't expect to be added to it. If you aren't giving me what I need in a relationship it won't be long before I move forward in life without you.

I Like To Write

Obviously. So if you don't want our experiences good and bad to be shared then I'm not your girl. Writing is the best stress reliever and I believe everyone in this world goes through similar situations in life. I truly hope that my choices, experiences, mistakes, and emotions that are displayed in my writing can help someone else along their journey.

I Like To Be Alone

I won't always want you around. I need that time where it's just myself and my thoughts. I want to travel alone, go grocery shopping by myself or spend a day at the lake with just my dog. Of course, I want to do those things with you too just don't be offended when I tell you to go home because I need some me time. I just like to be alone sometimes.

I Am Needy

On the contrary, I'll need some reassurance; I am constantly overthinking everything going on in my life. A regular phone call or text to remind me that I matter to you is a must.

My Laugh Is Super Annoying

There is absolutely nothing cute about my wheezing, snorting, gut rolling laughter when I really get going. I apologize in advance, it's just something you will have to accept.

I Am Bossy

I mean well I just really want you to listen to me. Looking back at number one I'd be willing to bet you end up doing so. Again, I'm sorry.

I Work All The Time

I love what I do. I have multiple responsibilities and overtime shifts regularly. When the pager goes off for that volunteer firefighting thing that I do, hands down I'm picking that over you every time. No, I will not call in sick to spend the day with you and honestly, I probably won't use my vacation time on your terms either. I pay my own bills; I buy my own things and I never want to rely on someone else to do so. When you ask me what I'm doing chances are I'll be working.

I'll Love You Way Too Much

Seriously it will be super annoying. I have this heart of gold and I truly cannot help myself. I will always want the best for you and the best for our relationship.

I Talk A Lot

The plus side of that is I will tell you literally everything. Communication is huge in a relationship; I want to be able to tell you about my day start to finish. I want to tell you when you have done something to hurt me or something that made me happy. You will never have to question what is on my mind and I would expect the same from you.

I Will Always Pick My Family Over You

I'm not sorry about this at all. For my entire life, my family has gotten me through every single rough day and been my applause on every single good day. If it came down to it, them or you, without even a thought I'm picking them.

I Joke Too Much

Life shouldn't be so serious, and that very mindset has put me in some awkward situations. Really though you will have to learn to love that awful laugh of mine because life with me is full of laughter no matter how terrible.

I Want To Fight

Remember my daddy taught me how to fight. Butting heads is one thing him and I are incredibly good at after twenty-one years. He also happens to be the man whom I love the most in this world. You never go to bed angry; you never go to bed with any unresolved feelings. Fight with me. I want to fight with you.

To the man who chooses to pursue me; you have been warned.

Sincerely, the difficult woman.

154527

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Scrolling through Twitter this week had me rolling on the floor laughing as I read some of the hilarious tweets from ladies who, whether in a relationship or not, shared reactions to the news that PlayStation 5 is on its way

As this "buy your boyfriend a PS5" joke takes off across the internet, let's just say, there are a few things your BF should be doing before dropping $499 on the new gaming system — or, if the tweets are real for some, before you buy it for him as a gift.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

32636

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

5471

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
