do u ever see someone reALLY cute in public and you just kinda ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I had a friend tell me he thought it was easier for me to find dates because I’m a girl.
No. No it is not. Why? Because women have it just as hard, if not harder. We are compared to supermodels and porn stars and just about every male fantasy out there. Sure, we do the same thing to men. Its a cycle, its the way the world we grew up in shaped our thinking. Sad, but it’s the truth. Granted, in recent years we have come to a point where we as humans go after what we find attractive which isn’t the same as it was before. Which is good and bad.
However, I am finding it very hard to find someone to date, to get to know. I, like many women, have SERIOUS self confidence issues. Sure, some of you look at me and say “She’s cute” or “She’s beautiful, why does she have confidence issues?” Because I don’t see myself like everyone else does. I don’t even think I am seen at all by people. Let me give you an example:
I’m on an online dating site. There has been some men who have expressed an interest in me, however I do not share that same attraction for them. Now I know that this shouldn’t effect me when it happens to me. But I read this profile which was looking for this in a “perfect match”:
“Hard to say but ummm…a romantic enthusiast hahaha …Affectionate, passionate …nerdy girls are a plus, & a side note girls with glasses are very sexi to me don’t ask cause idk why I just think so …someone thats themselves with me & not be worried…&who’s not afraid of a future”
That sounds like me to a T. I am a romantic, I’m very affectionate and passionate, I’m a nerd, and I have glasses. So I message this fellow. He was online at the time and checked out my profile and such. So I sent him my number, which I RARELY do unless I’m really interested… a short time later he logged off…
Maybe I’m reading too much into it, maybe not. Doesn’t matter, it’s things like this that makes me question myself, my attractiveness and if there’s something wrong with me. I’m seriously sitting here trying not to think those types of thoughts because they’d make me cry.
All I want is to be loved by someone. I want to be so attracted to someone that no one else can come into my vision. I want to be with someone that fits my dream, maybe I’m being shallow.. but aren’t we all in some way? What’s the point of dating someone you’re NOT attracted to just because they’re a “Nice guy” or just because there’s a view qualities that you’re looking for?
Yes, dating is hard for women as it is men. We aren’t all attractive to those we are attracted to.
Maybe I’m just not destined to be in love or to be loved by someone. I’m just not suppose to have a happy little family, a loving husband. I’m just a tool for those to use until they find their perfect piece. I’m like a sock without a mate.
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
i thought somebody else might need to hear this, because i did.
A TRANS COLLEGE STUDENT IN A TOXIC ENVIRONMENT NEEDS YOUR HELP.
One of my close friends named Brent (pictured above, he’s the one with short black hair and glasses) is in an extremely dangerous situation.
To give you a little background information, Brent’s a transgender individual living with two extremely conservative parents who show zero respect for Brent’s gender identity, preferred pronouns and name, and little sympathy for his overall well-being. We met this fall at Bowling Green State University, and I became one of his close friends over the year. This year has been huge in terms of him coming out as trans and developing confidence in his gender expression. He’s made so much progress and I’m incredibly proud of him, but he’s had major fallbacks in terms of his relationship with his parents. They stopped paying for his schooling for a period of time (which nearly caused him to leave school), have put him through a disgusting amount of emotional abuse because of a past sexual identity and his current gender expression. They don’t believe in gender expression or identity other than the one assigned at birth, and refuse to acknowledge that it’s something that Brent’s been dealing with throughout his entire life. They thoroughly believe being Trans* is a choice, and this is something he has been persuaded to do.
They believe that the individuals he has befriended at Bowling Green State University have caused this change, and they don’t understand the support he’s received. They don’t believe someone who identifies as trans* can lead a successful life and that this “behavior” shouldn’t be “encouraged”. Because of this, they’re forcing Brent to transfer to another nearby University (University of Toledo) and commute every day, which would be extremely hazardous to Brent’s mental well-being.
Brent would be completely cut off from those who support him the most, including myself, his girlfriend, and his sports team, and would be completely and utterly at the whim of his parents. His parents have tried seeking therapists to “fix” this issue, and force Brent to present in a way in which goes against his preferred gender expression.
Understandably, this takes a huge toll on Brent’s mental health. He has already begun falling into a depression because of his current situation, and is a risk to himself in terms of self harm and suicidal thoughts.
This is our final hope for keeping Brent at Bowling Green State University where he has an overwhelming support system, and is in a lgbtq+ positive environment. Brent’s girlfriend and myself have set up a indiegogo fundraiser in which we are attempting to raise enough money to pay for this upcoming school year.
Our goal is roughly $10,000, and literally any possible donation can help Brent continue his college education at the university he’s currently attending.
If you can’t donate money, which is completely understandable, PLEASE HELP BY REBLOGGING THIS POST. The more we can spread this post around the better and it’s just as important as any donations made.
I know this post is extremely long, but one of my best friend’s mental sanity is on the line and it’s so important to me at we at least try to raise a little money to help him. This is our last hope and I know I’ve seen tumblr do so many wonderful things.
