I’m writing this blog because I feel the need to defend myself. Over the last year people have made good and bad comments about ME and MY BLOG. Some people have praised me for what I write while others call me names, make fun of me, and judge me. If you notice on my profile to this blog I label myself as a girl that wears her heart on her sleeve. I talk about things that bother or upset me, that’s just how I am. If I’m hurt I need to tell someone about it, it makes me feel better. I am a good girl.
One of the biggest issues of me having this blog is that men seemed to be bothered by it. Almost as if they think that if I have a bad time with them that I’ll write about them. This is simply untrue. There are many instances where I either had a bad date or a lack luster encounter and I’ve never mentioned anything. I’ve actually had several guys that were interested in me warned by their friends to “Watch out for her!” Really? ME? They act as though I’m some Man-eater, chewing guys up and spitting them out. Or they act like I’m some player that always is on the prowl for a guy. UNBELIEVABLE! I’m like any other girl. I just want to find a great guy that loves me for me and treats me the way I’ve always wanted to be treated. I can’t help that my experience with men in the town of Milwaukee has been less than pleasurable.
When guys I start to date ask me about my blog and what it’s all about, I have one warning for them…”Don’t treat me like crap and I won’t talk about you!” Funny thing is the 3 guys I’ve had to tell that to I’ve written about all of them…Gee I wonder why they were so scared. Probably because they know they were shady mother scratchers! When things would go south and I’d write about them and of course their friends would check it out. I always kept their identity concealed but, the friends always knew who I was talking about. Listen, I can’t help that your friends read my blog and that they know the crappy things you pulled. That’s not my problem. Like I said, “Don’t treat me like crap and I won’t talk about you and the stuff you did.”
As for people sending out the warning flare for their friends, you really don’t know me. Yeah I said, just like they do on the Jerry Springer Show…”YOU DON’T KNOW ME!! DON’T JUDGE ME!” I know that having stuff written about you is maybe a little scary but, my thought is, if you have nothing to hide than you have nothing to worry about. Every person that I’ve written about in a less than perfect light has acted just the way I’ve described. I don’t lie about these situations. My group of girlfriends can absolutely verify…most of the time they were there.
What I’m afraid of is that I won’t find a guy because of this blog but, my friend Mathew said to me, “Erin those guys just aren’t the ones for you that’s all.” I hope he’s right. Although, when I end up moving to another city maybe things will be a little different. Milwaukee is a small town. There’s about 2 degrees of separation between you and the person next to you.
