Please note that this post is mostly full of snark. I'm playing... kinda sorta.
Except for the stuff that's true. Just saying...
I have been consistently told that I'm a "different" type of chick... That's fine... Except I don't really know what that means. I don't even think the guys that tell me that know either. Because lemme tell you... *sigh*
Whatever it means, I realize that I have to work with the perception that my #geekstatus puts me in a different group. If this is in fact true, that this other category actually exists, apparently there needs to be some guidelines to how to date a girl like me. Well, not all girls like me, because apparently I'm "different," but you know what I mean...
Yes, I... That one chick, has the unmitigated gall to be proactive and give you information on alternatives to approaching me. Because as of right now, what I've been getting is full of fail and apparently y'all need assistance...
1. Please stop telling me how "different" I am... I'm not really that different
Saying how different I am isn't convincing me that you are really interested. It kinda sounds like I am some sort of experiment. Instead of someone you want to date. And please don't explain this difference by comparing me with the other women on your list. It doesn't help. Erase what's in your head, Its not true... I'm just a girl that like to read and do stuff. No, really...
2. During the initial conversations, can you please not tell me how I need to calm down, or how I need to be "tamed?"
OK, so if in the first conversation you tell me how its cool that I'm "feisty" and the next time you tell me I'm "too feisty," you sound crazy. Telling me that you are just the guy to make me "obey (yes, that happened)" is hilarious. Only because of the opinion that I am as the most hard-headed woman ever. And stop calling me a "Filly". That's just dumb...
3. I'm a Sweetheart, but not a Punk. I'm a Geek, but not a Square
I am the most caring, giving and supportive person ever. That makes me a good person, not a pushover. Oh, and my Geek Status does not make it so I don't like fun. I will do most things at least once (except maybe skydiving... because you may only have one chance at that...)
4. Yes I understand that you may want to do more things than talk, But please pay attention when I'm talking
The more you pay attention the better I am receptive to you. That's all I got for that one.
5. Yeah... Can you look up when you talk with me?
I understand that I have certain, um, features, that may take up your attention. However, most of you are grown enough to understand how to pretend to look in someones face, right? So Let's do that. If you behave like a gentleman in the beginning you can go a long way. Trust me on this...
See? Simple. I didn't even talk about how your "game" could use some (OK, a lot) of work. I didn't even talk about the crazy one-liners that would drive any woman to knitting her own kittens and staying home. Just be yourself. I bet you're pretty cool when you aren't pretending to be someone out of a 70s flick. Try that. I be a Girl like me would love it.
Thank you for your time. I'll be over here with knitting needles and Red Vines...
