In the nearly 2 years since I've had this blog, I have a lot of guys getting offended. There's really no need for someone to take these blogs personally. I will say that some are written about people that I know. BUT...Those blogs are about those people and are all based on my observations or those of my friends...like I've stated before. So let's make things absolutely crystal clear in hopes that I won't have another blog comment stating "Erin there are good guys out there...or Erin girls do bad things too."
1. I KNOW THERE ARE GOOD GUYS OUT THERE!!!
For the love of Pete! I believe there are guys that aren't d-bags. Why do you think I still try and date? If I thought all guys were d-bags I'd probably become a lesbian or a crazy cat lady. The fact is, that there are more men out there that are bad than good. Finding a good guy sometimes is like finding a needle in haystack. Although, once you find him it will be worth the wait.
2. EVERY NICE GUY ISN'T MEANT FOR ME!
What I mean be this is, sure you can be a great guy but maybe when you go out you're just not feeling it. May it be their actions on the date, things they said or didn't say, attraction, or maybe the foot they put forward wasn't their best one...you name it. I think I'm a nice girl but, just because I meet a really nice guy doesn't mean he's the right fit for me.
3. I SAY WHAT A LOT OF GIRLS THINK
GUYS NEWS FLASH!!! We talk about you!!! When we get together with our friends sometimes you come up and we share our feelings!! If you haven't seen the movie "He's just not that into you"...YOU NEED TO!!! If only to watch and say..."Yep been there! Oh Yeah...had that happen." All I'm saying is, all of my friends and I were dying because we've all done and had the things happen to us that were in that movie!!
OH! And all girls have stories of how guys have done them wrong. Even if you're a nice guy I can guarantee there's a girl out there somewhere that thinks you're an A$$ because at some point you probably were NOT you're typical "nice guy" self.
4. JUST BECAUSE I TALK ABOUT BAD GUYS...DOESN'T MEAN IT'S ABOUT YOU.
How many times have you heard a guy say.."God..Girls are crazy!"? Does that mean ALL girls are crazy? Of course not! So when I say something like 'run from the guy that's says he'll break up with his GF'...I'm talking in generalities. From the outside looking in...that situation looks bad.
It all boils down to the fact that I speak of general man behavior. Because I speak of bad behavior doesn't mean that I think all men are bad. So boys...grow some thick skin and realize that most of us women will go through our handfuls of the bad ones before we get to the good one. Although sometimes, some of us still settle with the bad ones.
