Real Talk: Lend Me Your Ear


“A guy that lends his ear to girl’s talk isn’t a man.” – Whitney

Pause.

Hold up. Could someone please explain that statement to me.

If she means that any guy that a girl talks to as though she were talking to one of her girls is NOT (seen as) a man, I could understand that.

But Whitney did not say that & upon asking her what she meant by that statement she said, “Girls talk to their girlfriends, not their men.”

Fundamentally I see something wrong with that way of thinking. And then I thought about times when women consult with other women about things rather than just asking the guy directly what’s going on.

*Raises hand*

Am I missing something?
Or am I just niave about how relationships & women work?

Now I’m not assuming that my friend is the “Spokeswoman for Women Everywhere”, but I’m sure she isn’t the only girl that thinks that way. And I am not trying to convince her of anything, I’m just wondering why that “logic” seems to be so…. prevalent or natural.

Forgive Me


Please forgive me.
Forgive me for letting my feelings run away with me.
I want to be what you want of me.
I just don’t know what to say when you look at me that way.
Please forgive me when I forget the words that express how I feel.
I know I’m not the only one.

Forgive me for letting my feelings get the best of me.
I want you in my every day.
But I need you to know that as much as I want you in my life, I do not need you to live.
I think too much far too fast.
Yet you listen to every word that runs rampant as I talk my way through until I’ve fully fleshed out each detail.
