What Gives?

Alright...random rant that's been a long time coming...

I have a career, am a hardworker, am interesting, honest, and sincere. I am not a bum, or lazy...can cook, clean and take responsibility for myself (and occasionally my 80 or so students on any given day). I'm old enough to be stable and know what I want and I also am cultured. Oh yeah - I don't think I look half bad either on a good day.

According to the world I must be the worst candidate for a wife and mother there possibly is.

Why? Every lazy, ambitionless, good-for-nothing drug user I know has children. Every jobless, welfare bum driving a brand new vehicle in their mortgage free house I know is married. Every skanky little mini-skirt I know is taken in to be "taken care" of by some well-off business man who feels bad for her (was Pretty Woman THAT much of an influence on this generation?!).

HELLO!?

I need to take up my hems, buy some stilettos, lose my job and spend a few hundred bucks on cheap makeup I guess. Maybe fighting over a corner would work also...

You have a BRAIN and self-respect. No short skirts can replace that! Be proud of who you are and what you are! Forget about those other people! Their fall will be far and long.

I know exactly how you feel. I was there for a VERY long time and there are no guarentees I won't be back there. There is a great guy out there for you. I know it's tough to believe. You don't want the ones who won't respect you for not "needing" him.

What happened to the boy?

While stilettos are not necesarry, it's always fun to buy new shoes...

I love you, some WORTHY man will love you too, just wait for him.

Yeah what is up with that? Why do all the tramps seem to have a ring on their finger? I wouldn't go too far to raise up your hems. LOL!! I think maybe the men's standards have dropped so much. You will find him, just be patient. Trust me it's worth waiting for then having to go thru so many cruddy guys.

I was waiting for someone else to ask it first...what happened to the boy?

...and the other girls are all right. Don't settle. There is a guy out there worthy of you.

...and to your comment of not looking half bad on a good day, what an understatement! You're hot! Seriously!

You're looking too hard. Once you're content with being on your own for a while, someone awesome will sweep you off your feet!!

Men are easily intimidated. And yes, they know you don't need them, which hurts their feelings.
Think of the animals that act weak and wounded to lure in the creature they actually want to attack.
