It’s hard to believe really. I’m walking around this world without a hand to hold.
(Sorry, Mom. I’m too old for your sweaty palms!)
Maybe I’m not “the total package,” maybe I can get too comfortable around boys and forget to get “out of the friendzone.”
Really though, I’m sorry I burped in front of you. I thought it was okay. My brothers don’t mind, but I guess that’s because they’re forced to have me in their immediate circle for the rest of my life. Where as you, unknown boyfriend of the future, you do not.
I mean like who wouldn’t want to date someone that does the following:
Disclaimer: Some of these have been embellished for entertainment. Either that or I’m just trying to have you not think I’m a total wack job. But I guess that has been thrown out the window by now.
- Unbuckle my belt before I get into a stall in the bathroom
- Constantly listen to female power ballads by Celine Dion in my car
- Burp in front of the opposite sex and still expect them to think of me like a dainty, polished lady
- Avoid showering for a couple days
- Forget to shower for a couple days
- Forget to shower for a week (I haven’t done this… in a long time)
- Actively avoid eating vegetables
- Lock myself out of my car and/or apartment
- Drunk dial people on a Tuesday night
- Barely shave my legs in the winter
- Internally accept that “winter weight” is an epidemic and can’t do anything about it
- Use the poop emoji more often than necessary
- Talk about sexcapades in front of people I have a crush on and expect them to think I’m a pure, polished, non-hussy
- Wake up on Saturday morning with ketchup stains on my elbow from the bar the night before
- Argue with other humans that wine is just adult grapes, so I’m getting my fruit intake for the week
- Irrationally hate other women for having good hair and a nice figure
- Can’t civilly discuss politics or religion without going on a tangent about either (I know nothing about either, either.)
- Attempt to talk to boys at the bar and the first thing out of my mouth is how rarely I do laundry
- Utilize the same vocabulary as a filthy sailor man
Have daddy issues
- Get too drunk and cry about all the feelings I internalize during the workweek
- Think that twinkies and club soda is an acceptable dinner for a working professional female
- Live in a closet
- Sleep in a twin bed… with one set of sheets
- Talk about my electronic devices as if they are humans
- Throw a tizzy fit if I miss happy hour by 10 minutes
So boys, LINE UP!

Haha! Loved this.
When you read the list out loud, it doesn’t seem out of the ordinary that I’m single. Whoops!
Well, I didn’t say that…hehe. I just said I love the post 🙂 however, I think some men would fall for ‘quirkiness’, shall we call it?
Good word, I like that 🙂
Thank you! Hopefully you’re not as big of an embarrassment as me!
Lol – I am, in a different way, I spill things, drop them and trip over my own feet. Happily, my better half has a great sense of humour!
I love it!! Thanks for sharing this today. ❤
