I wore this ensemble to church because if you can't wear sequins for the Lord, where can you wear them?
One of my guy friends told me that a lot of guys are scared of me.
He said that guys see me and assume that I have a husband, boyfriend, or a lot of guys to choose from. He told me that it's a compliment because guys know that they gotta have their stuff together to approach me.
I don't know why this is supposed to be a compliment! Guys are afraid of you. Yay, Juanette!
Yes girl, You.Did.That.
I don't want men to be afraid of me. I want them to find me intriguing. And witty. And unique.
It bothers me, that people make assumptions based on what they think that they know instead of getting to know the person.
Now I'm not saying that the guy who approaches me can live with his parents, be married, or not have a job (these have in fact, all been guys who have approached me in the past) but at least try.
Guys believe that they have to wine and dine me when all they gotta do to impress me is take me to Rudy's Chicken for a two piece, a side of fries and a slice of white bread.
*I am so not kidding about this.* Ok, a three piece, I really do love Rudy's.
Rudy's Chicken is a spot in South Dallas that I swear adds some kind of magical voodoo to their chicken that makes me want it even as I'm typing this post.
How can you rule out someone based on what you THINK you know? I've seen women do it too, rule men out because of their professions because they assume that they know what type of guy they are. I have heard some women cross men off of their list because they are photographers (meet a lot of women), personal trainers (meet a lot of fine women), or blue collar workers (not enough money) based purely on assumption and not the person.
I always say that I want someone to get to know me. The me on the inside. Who laughs daily, loves music, is a great seat dancer and has a love jones for Shawn Corey Carter (a.k.a. Jay-Z.) Who has been through some stuff but doesn't let that rule her future, who believes that being kind is more important than being rich and who wants that "you hang up, no you hang up, I thought about you all day today" kinda love.

Is that too much to ask?
