Loved the Bridesmaid dress quiz! So funny!

Reading that makes me so happy that I never have to plan a wedding ever again! Not that I was actually like that to begin with….

More proof that I fail as a girl sometimes – I read the quiz and had no idea what half of it even meant. I kept reading “BM” as “bowel movement” and kept having to re-read it to figure out what it was actually saying, and even then it was sort of like “Wait, why would I need a short dress for the bridesmaids based on what my dress looks like? What does it matter if gray is classic if you like it? And why would my bridesmaids need to tell me they don’t like spaghetti straps? Why wouldn’t they tell me that when we were talking about what they wanted to wear?”

I am going to confuse the hell out of everyone when I get married.

I always think BM = bowel movement too.

I really like the ‘6 Things Women Do To Push Away Men’. It makes women be accountable for some of the behaviors that ‘female culture’ deems acceptable but ‘male culture’ does not. I see a lot of these cray-cray behaviors on Facebook and with my girlfriends in real life (as well as BIG TIME on The Bachelor).

I miss the bachelor. I know it just ended but still. I miss the tears and the why am I not good enough moments.

I especially liked that one girl who went on a dinner with him and was all like, “Welllll… where do we stand? What are you thinking?!?!” It was just so, so scary lol

Haha I knew I needed a break from dating when I realized my behavior can be called similar to a bachelor contestant. Plus I can’t say I haven’t done every single thing on that list above…sigh. Lili needs a dating 101 seminar STAT. Oh and I need to stop listening to my best friend who is all, well the right guy will love you no matter how many ‘crazy’ antics you pull. Uh no hun, no he won’t.

“I need to stop listening to my best friend who is all, well the right guy will love you no matter how many ‘crazy’ antics you pull. Uh no hun, no he won’t.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t know where women get that shit idea from but it’s even more lunatic than the ‘crazy antics’. Men want sane, reasonable women who don’t demand that they tell them their every thought or subject them to constant scrutiny or act bitchy to every other attractive female on the planet or second-guess their own worth.
