the chase .
i have come to realise that i have an alarming amount of disrespect for girls that chase after guys. it’s rather appauling; i’m practically borderline disgusted, and that really shouldn’t happen for anyone except for men who are already disgusting.
this realisation came to me as i was halfway through another taiwanese drama series in which the girl tries extremely hard to, and i quote/translate, “step into the guy’s heart.”
cue cringe from liz. sometimes i actually wince. maybe one day if it were bad enough i’d gag.
what’s even more terrible is that the guy is always the horrendous closed up, mysterious, can’t give a shit about anything type of person that really doesn’t care about, well, shit.
sound familiar anyone?
apart from a very limited number of my friends (1, i dare say), i don’t believe anyone i am friends with has ever really gone after a guy. maybe it’s because they’re all attractive in some way or form? i’m not sure. maybe i’d feel differently if i knew someone that really liked a guy and really, heartachingly chased after him. but i don’t. in fact, i usually hear it from the guy’s side, which sounds something like the following:
“oh god she’s so annoying, she texts me all the time to ask me what i’m doing,” “oh man she’s talking to me again,” or “no, she’s not good looking.”
so i have this weird perception that only guys should chase girls, but why is that wrong? what’s wrong with having standards and not throwing yourself at some guy that isn’t interested like an easy, insecure, unloved sad case? especially if he doesn’t care in the first place; ask yourself, is it worth it to let go of your pride?
am i just being old fashioned? or do some people need to get some balls around here?
figuratively speaking, of course…
