Ways of a Woman in Love

I was at work, complaining to a customer that i don't like Johnny Cash or Nirvana, and how most people think that means I should be burned alive. He agreed, but also recommended reading Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Cocoa Puffs. It's a collection of essays on Chuck Klosterman's views on life. So far, i've gotten through 3 chapters, and so far-pretty good.
The first chapter was hilarious. He writes almost as funny as the guy who does the Superficial. Anyway, this chapter is about how he will never find a woman to satisfy him. Nor will he ever satisfy a woman. Because everything in life-movies, books (i guess those are everything in life)-tells us love should be perfect. Nothing really bad happens, you end up together, bla bla bla. So girls come to expect that guys do certain things and visaaa versa.
So, as Zach Morris did in a College Years episode, I've concluded every guy is different-one guy loved to take me to dinner, one guy didn't ever have money, one guy would hold my bags while shopping, one guy refused to go out with me. So in the long run, i have to keep adjusting how i will get treated with somebody new.
I know what i like in a relationship-and i really know what i don't like. I guess i figure nobody's perfect so i'll be satisfied with part of a guy, but really hate other things he does (or doesn't do). Then it just ends up making me mad because the negatives usually outweigh the positives. So, like Chuck, I will never be truly happy with a man.
Do I swallow my anger and annoyance for every guy and brush my shoulders off at their dick moves? Or do I forever remain single and at least be pretty damn happy with myself?

And while i'm on the subject of bitching, and not in the mood to think of another clever title for a separate entry,
It's very easy to tell whether a guy does or doesn't like a girl. If you want to deny that because you're all "caught up"-understandable. But i will, time and time again, insist that if a guy is willing to choose his friends over you multiple times, doesn't care if you're upset, says he is way too stressed and tired from work or school to see you, and doesn't want to have sex very often-he doesn't like you. What's more annoying than him not liking me (because that's crazy. everybody loves me) is that guys who do this insist i am crazy and 1. they are not doing anything out of the ordinary and 2. of course they still like me.
I know this is a fail-safe way to judge, because i used to be like these guys. I came up with tons of excuses when I didn't like a guy anymore yet still wanted the company. And also because as soon as a guy like this and myself stop seeing each other, he is a completely different person with another girl. Suddenly he wants to go out, kiss in public, post pictures of her all over myspace, return calls on time. So if I seem crazy and mad, it's because they make me that way. They insist everything's fine-when i know it's not. I don't understand it, and it angers me a lot. I probably stick around crazy and mad a little longer than i always should. Oh well, a learning experience every time, right?
Damn, now Nirvana's on the radio.

To Live and Work in Vegas

I thought this article sounded interesting. Maybe it would explain bullshit jobs here or how the young, strong, (stephanie and steve) industry professionals-but damn good and driven at what they do-do it.
But really it was just some good advice on how to deal with all the annoying people and clients you might have on a daily basis. So i'm gonna take the advice and keep working.

Crazy Lady

I refuse to be in a relationship. For a couple reasons, but one of them being - I go crazy. My first relationship was totally easy. Calls every few days. We didn't have any other friends so we'd always hang out. If he or i got mad, we'd just tell each other that was stupid and get over it. It was a long relationship, so sex wasn't exactly new or exciting. Easy.

But then we broke up. And ever since then I've realized it's great to be in a relationship where it's nice to talk on the phone everyday. When we have separate friends and he doesn't mind if i come home drunk late from the bar to him or vice versa. But along with that comes other problems. Like-why isn't he getting a bit jealous that I'm not hanging out with him? Why does he choose his friends over me? Why is he calling me everyday for 2 weeks but then goes a week only calling me 3 times? Why doesn't he say I'm cute when i dress up? And why doesn't he want to have sex with me everytime i want to?

I can barely date and get even a bit attached to someone because all these things end up driving me completely crazy and I think about them all the time! Is it just that I'm on heightened awareness of these feelings during my time of the month? Or am I destined to be an awful, nutty girlfriend? I've worked on it a little-I don't get too mad when a guy wants to go out with his friends. And if he doesn't spend all his time with me-i occupy myself with other things. But I've tried working on all the other problems and end up madder than when I started. Maybe it's better this way-I'll have no ties and be able to move around, hoping for many cats as my pets, for the rest of my life doing whatever i want. Ya sure...maybe it's better that way.
