“I just want to add something: every time I’ve liked a dude and hasn’t been sure if he would like me back or whatever, I will think to myself, “Well, I’ll just be my own awesome self. He will either fall in love with me or someone else will.”
The one time my then-girlfriend/now-wife bit me, it was not exactly awesome (though I guess it was somewhat my fault for so vigorously fingerbanging her on the couch while she was laying on top of me). She did it on my neck…high up on my neck…a couple hours before I had to go to work AT MY FATHER’S OFFICE. Buttoned my top button that day (but only after the secretary told me I might want to hide that “bug bite…er, shaving cut, yeah, yeah, that’s it, shaving cut”).”
“I can’t even wear skirts to work on super hot days (about 80 at 8am like right now) because I’ll literally get sweat droplets down my butt cheeks walking the 10 mins from my car to work. Same with my boobs. I am gross and definitely in need of body deoderant or something… if that exists.”
“I got some serious Jedi training on this from my mom when I was a kid. I’m talking 5+ minute phone calls to tell me to turn on the dishwasher. I still hate aimless preambles, or unnecessary backstory, but now I am better at masking it.”
“I think one of the problems is that people are reading Jessica’s article and thinking that she means, “Women must marry men who make big bucks.” However, what I took away was, “Women (and men) must marry someone that can help them make their dreams come true.” Financial capabilities are just one (major) way that dreams come true. It goes both ways. A man should look at a woman’s financial situation just as much as she looks at his. It doesn’t do someone any good to make a good salary if their spouse has huge debts and likes to spend $200 on a pair of flip-flops. If a woman dreams of being a stay-at-home mom, then naturally she should look for a man who is Ok with his wife staying at home, and who can also provide the financial foundation for this to happen. Likewise, if a man wants to work a low-paying job such as being an artist, AND he wants to have a nice house, then he should perhaps looks for a woman who has a high paying job so that SHE can be the primary provider. For either men or women, to marry someone PURELY for love and ignore the finances….you’re asking for disaster. Additionally, money is not the only form of “providing”. A stay-at-home mom (or dad) should provide just as much towards the family as the working dad (or mom). One may bring home the money, the other provides in other ways such as raising the children, cooking and cleaning, mending and fixing things (so save on buying new things), grocery shopping, etc. When I was young, my dad worked while my mom stayed home with the young kids. She cooked, cleaned, mended clothes, and also did some freelance graphic design work when she found the time. Then, she began writing and was able to make enough that my dad stayed at home while she made the money. She worked on her newsletter 8 hours a day away from home, while he stayed with the kids, cooked, cleaned, and did all the other “household” things.”
