Some of you are wondering why I have not written anything the past couple of days. You can say I was suffering from a severe depression episode (don’t want to drizzle your evening with boredom of the reason why), and I felt that words on the internet will not make me seem like a pleasant Rebellious Arab Girl, but more of a well-hated one. So, I kept my distance, but a watchful eye on my blog’s active debates regarding the indisputable marriage questions.
Anyways, let me discuss the subject that I was thinking about instead of a depression rant. I want to point out something that I noticed regarding the opposite gender. I am not sure if I want to stereotype this towards only Arab guys, or guys in general, or just a selected few. I don’t really know. All I know is that some guys have severe problems with people accepting them right away. They are in desperate need for a girl to accept them right away, or they will end it without saying a word. If a girl does not show interest right away and goes beyond the friendly conversation to actually loving the guy, then the guy ends it faster then the speed of light.
Self esteem issues? Acceptance issues? Impatience issues? He must find a girl that loves him ever so quickly because he cannot stand his life anymore!
Maybe that’s the problem with people and relationships. Everyone wants things so fast, and do not want to get to know the other person at all. Some guys don’t even bother to answer any questions that the girl may ask him about life or anything. He just ignores it and wants to talk about his feelings and if the girl loves him already. What if that cute girl with crazy thoughts is a bit, oh how can I say this, PATIENT? Has all the time in the world to get to know someone, and does not believe that rushing into anything is any good?
I sound like a bad highschool guidance councilor. I don’t even remember ever going to mine. I didn’t like my highschool.
You guys get my point? Some guys have no patience. They want things now, or they will end it. However, you know what pisses them off? When you act like it didn’t bother you, and you didn’t bother to ask him why he did it, and what the problem is? Because if the girl is smart, she wouldn’t ask and would right away know what the problem is. Somehow, that makes the guy wonder why you didn’t ask, and he comes back crawling all on all fours trying to figure it out.
I think for life to move along in a more positive direction, we need to learn about that thing called patience. I used to have no patience growing up; however, I had to learn it the hard way, or all what is left from the 4 or 5 handful of brain cells in me will be dissolved quickly into thin air. Actually, I got like 2 or 3 handfuls. But who is counting?
