Like any other relationships, mine certainly isn’t damn well near perfection. Whoever said opposites attract anyway? I can perfectly name some points that made me wonder why my boyfriend stayed this long.
Number one, I’m out all the time. I don’t think I’m ready to stay at home on Saturday Nights, I guess, even if there are good movies on HBO. He might have to come up with something fun if he wants to stay home at Saturday Night because a restless me might stamp my bratty foot down.
Number two, I’m high maintenance. Sum up the contacts solution, the asthma inhalers, the hair treatments, the massages and the frequent dine outs, my boyfriend will declare bankruptcy. On my behalf.
Number three, I hardly talk at all. Even if I can be left alone with a crossword puzzle and think that its the most happiest times of my life doesn’t mean that I am a snob and I don’t make an effort to be nice. Ironically, he is the life of the party. I wouldn’t be surprised if my girlfriends invite him more than me.
Number four, I have habits that would make him curl up in horror. I chew on my nails. Hardly comb my hair. Collect expensive InStyle. Buy 3 shades of lipsticks every season. Bark at bad service. Hate jeepneys. Yell at the drivers.
Number five, I’m possessive and don’t want him to be very friendly with his female friends. If you want ALL of them to be your girlfriends, then count me out of it. I do not want to be part of a virtual orgy.
Number six, I don’t think I’m just paranoid. I’m a woman and we have the strongest instincts compared to men. Men are sometimes clueless and you might say, “Of course not she’s in love with me!” But if I feel something, I feel SOMETHING. Get it?
So what to do. What to do – help me out here.
