A lovely sista sent me this, I guess that makes me one of only a few good men.
This differentiates between girls and grown women. I think that in some ways we can adapt this to the men as well, I’m too buzy (more like lazy) to do it so if you want to, go ahead and if you can, send it to me so I can put it up.
The thing that really jumps out at me from this is Rule No. 1 from the book 10 Commandments of Dating by Ben Young and Samuel Adams, Get a Life. That’s enough rambling, enjoy.
Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits in.
Girls want to control the man in their life.
Grown women know that if he’s truly hers, he doesn’t need controlling.
Girls check you for not calling them.
Grown women are too busy to realize you hadn’t.
Girls try to put a man ‘on lock’ by using sex.
Grown women know that it’s the sex of the mental kind that makes a man want to ‘lock’ you down.
Girls fake-moan, lay there and take the stabbing.
Grown women say, “Just stop”, get up, get dressed and walk out.
Girls are afraid to be alone.
Grown women revel in it– using it as a time for personal growth.
Girls ignore the good guys.
Grown women ignore the bad guys.
Girls make you come.
Grown women make you come home.
Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.
Girls try to monopolize all their man’s time (i.e., don’t want him hanging with his friends).
Grown women realize that a lil’ bit of space makes the ”together time’ even more special — and goes to kick it with her own friends!
Girls think a guy crying is weak.
Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue.
Girls want to be spoiled and ‘tell’ their man so.
Grown women teach by example and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate without any slur on his “manhood”.
Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Grown women know that was just one man.
Girls fall in love, chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all ‘signs’.
Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, don’t always love you back– and move on, without bitterness.
Girls will read this and get an attitude.
Grown women will read this and pass it on to other Grown women and a few good men!!
