Did the sun come out

 or did you just smile at me?

Ahhh good-ol' pick-up lines (Source)

Remember how I said I was MIA learning so many great things?  Well, I've been learning more and more, and I cannot wait to share another lesson.

This time?  It's all about the chicos!

Just spent like 5 minutes trying to find the perfect picture of "hot guys"...needless to say...I was certainly enjoying myself :p (Source)

I swear I'm not a dumb blonde,

I swear! (Source)

but for a while, I thought that if I were perfect, then I would get the perfect guy.  And I simply wanted the perfect guy, like most girls, to love me.  I was lonely and I wanted love. 

Like honestly, what was I thinking? ((Source)

In an effort to be perfect and stand out (I wanted to be the "most" at something so guys would notice me...I chose to be the thinnest...bad choice...).

Again, I repeat...


Looking back, I now realize how dumb all this must sound.
But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell/I know, right now you can't tell/But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see/A different side of me.

The other day, I was chatting with a bunch of guys about their perfect girl while the girls (including me) told them our version of the perfect guy.

Personality.  Type of humor.  Hair color.  Breast size.  Every little detail was shared.

And you know what I learned?
I always knew that personality mattered to guys (DUH), but what I didn't explicitly realize (I say explicitly meaning: although I knew this to be true deep down, I never consciously verbalized it or noticed it) is that there is no "perfect girl".  Some guys [gentlemen] prefer blondes, some brunettes, some bigger girls, some smaller girls, etc.  Every guy has a different taste, and you are some guy's ideal girl.  Therefore, there is no reason to change yourself because there is someone who is searching for someone just like you!  And I also consciously realized that just as I would settle for someone who doesn't fit my "perfect man", guys will also.  So you really do not need to be perfect.  Instead, you need to just be yourself with your great personality.  Because at the end of the day, personality outweighs looks.

And in conclusion to all this new insightful information all I can say is...

 (Another "well duh" moment...)

But sometimes we just need to be reminded.  Consider this your reminder :D


I just love this quote and thought it was so appropriate:

Don't ever stop smiling, because you never know who's falling in love with your smile.

What have you learned from the opposite sex in regards to what they are attracted to?  Society makes it seem as though all guys want Barbie, or some other perfect chick, but in reality, that is so not true.  Let's prove it's not true by also listing what you look for in a partner.  Can't wait to read them!

PS I didn't use the word "anyway" and I didn't quote Ke$ha.  What is the world coming to? :O

  1. Ahhh, Legally Blonde :D

    I think that guys are attracted to outgoing personalities! A girl who wants to have some fun and is relatively easy-going :)
