Gotta Love a Forward Button

I just recieved this from the inter office emailer version of spam... that stuff that fills up your inbox but you don't know its there until it cycles up amoungst the job requests and deadline updates.
I like it. It is similar to the paper copy with some similar messages about how women allow the men in their lives to treat them the way they do and to not blame others for what is happening in your life. The format is a little curt; however as a person who has come to feel secure with the addage 'everything happens for a reason' I am willing to take the timing as a bit of more-than-coincidental and read it carefully.


Dear Girls (from us guys)...Don't assume that guys won't care where you are, because we do.

____________________________________________________

It makes us feel SO secure to know that our girlfriends aren't off flirting with guys we've never heard of.

____________________________________________________

Also, don't talk about your ex-boyfriends.We never have, nor ever will respect or like them, nor do we want to hear about them.When you do, you're asking your boyfriend to be jealous.You're asking your boyfriend to lose trust.

____________________________________________________

On that, don't hump everything that walks into the room.We 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 ten minutes without even acknowledging the fact that we're still there.

____________________________________________________

Also, when we tell you you're pretty/ beautiful/ gorgeous/ cute/ stunning, we freaking 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.Smile and say "thank you."Let us pay for you.Don't "feel bad."We enjoy doing it.It's expected.Smile and say - everybody together now - "thank you."

____________________________________________________

Kiss us when no one's watching.If you kiss us when you know nobody'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, put on every kind of makeup you own.We like you for WHO you are and not WHAT you are.

____________________________________________________

DONT flirt with guys when we're not around.We'll find out. Trust us.We have eyes everywhere.And when we find out, we're pissed.Not necessarily with the guys you flirted with, more-so with YOU.

____________________________________________________

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 Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, or Jesse McCartny is in front of us.It's boring, and we don't care.You have girlfriends for that.

____________________________________________________

Whatever happened to the word "handsome"?Why does everything have to be "hot/sexy"?I'd be utterly stunned by a girl who greeted me with "Heyhandsome!" instead of "Hey baby/ stud/ cutie/ sexy" or whatever else you can think of.But seriously sometimes looks ISNT everything alot guys who arent exactly "hot" will treat you the way you need to be treatedClaiming girls or guys to be "hot" shows immaturity.

____________________________________________________

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, DISCRACE-TO-THE-MALE-POPULATION ASS, 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 stop what theyre doing just to look you in the eyes....and say "I love you" .......and actually mean it.

Give the nice guys a chance.

Sounds a little like the 30 year old guy who lives in the converted garage of his childhood home and continually watches girls go for the 'bad guys' on a second glancing over... or a girl who is sick of getting 2:30am calls from a girlfriend in distress over the lack of great men and passed it on like a chained forward. Its cool though; its a nice reminder to us single gals that we are not being cold or bitter or high mantainance - just that we refuse to compromise ourselves for the sake of some guy.

Are public intellectuals especially important anymore? Michael Young The British magazine Prospect recently mixed high- and low-brow culture by conducting an online poll allowing readers to choose the world's ...
Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and club music lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about club music lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite club music lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!
