dependence on people or drugs

I don't really like to associate myself with people that can't stand to be alone or to be alone with their own sober mind. I'm very much attracted to vulnerability in strong individuals, but I steer clear of anyone who is quite obviously just... weak.

There's nothing wrong with celebrating unattainable beauty.

I'm kinda really over that whole any-blatantly-sexy/sexual-photo-of-a-woman-is-sexist-because-it-is-objectifying-women-for-the-male-gaze thing that I hear a lot. I mean, I think there are a lot of women out there who also enjoy those photos very much. Like me. Nice bodies and faces are nice. And everyone objectifies everyone anyway. If you've got a nice face and body and want to show it off, then go ahead. We're all watching. Hahah.

I think it's almost always about the rocks being resentful towards the gems of the world. I totally like marveling at supermodels like Natalia Vodianova and Emily DiDonato. They are like a thousand times better looking than me, but I appreciate the crap out of their beauty and admire them for what they bring to the world. This unattainable, freakishly high level of beauty is a very rare, special thing. Just because you can't ever reach it yourself doesn't mean they should be hidden away from the world and never celebrated, just so you don't have to ever feel bad about what you look like.

We all have something to give, y'know? If you've found your thing, your worth, and put in the work to become great, maybe you wouldn't put so much weight in how good-looking you are vs other people. I mean, really. This is the face and body you were given. There are things you can do to look and feel the best that you possibly can. But no matter what you do, you are not, and will never be, the best-looking person in the world. Deal with it. And find your worth -- what will make you proud to be yourself -- elsewhere. Stop being jealous just cuz you refuse to learn about good style and makeup, and you let yo body become lumpy, and other people are fawning and swooning over someone other than you.

Guys that are good at talking and being themselves~

I do think shy guys are cute. But it's the guys that are confident(not arrogant or aching for attention), charming, and witty, that know how to talk to and conduct themselves around other people, totally comfortable with themselves, that really make me fall hard. :>

I remember just watching that one gorgeous guy (My Sunshine) that I was in on
e-sided love with for like a year and a half (lol) talk to a few acquaintances, pathetically swooning silently to myself. Hahah. /siiigghhhh

I know I am pretty assertive and a powerful personality, but I actually really don't like being "the man" (or the "mom "-- yikes!) of the relationship. I really, reeeally don't. I don't want to just be the one that challenges you. I want to be challenged, too. I guess we're all looking for someone that is just as capable as we are, eh?

The Real Romantics

I am gallant, romantic Prince Charming. 
Gay, gallant, romantic Prince Charming, stuck in a cute, little woman's body. 

If I'm in love with you, I will court you like crazy, and do romantic, thoughtful things all the time. I will make and bring you brownies when you're feeling down, I will buy you the most thoughtful, useful gifts that will help encourage you to chase your dreams, and simpler things like merch from your favorite game/movie. I will write love song after love song about you, draw, paint, photograph, and film you, buy you your favorite candy and leave it at your workplace with a hokey note attached to it just because. I am guilty of doing all of these things. And I will always be like this in love. 

Make no mistake, if I am in love with you, you WILL know it. But this part of me is never, ever given to those with questionable intention. Nothing can make me fall out of love faster than an evil heart. #therealromantics #obsessive #crazy #love #romance #hopelessromantic
