When Life Gives You Watermelons

When life, with all its splendidly happy accidents, actually gives you watermelons (yay!) instead of sour lemons (boo!)

Possibly-true-but-awkwardly-unconfirmed Scenario Uno:

When a guy is genuine enough to make the most hardened of girls fall for him, that’s the moment I will yell “How dare you! Don’t you know how long I’ve spent developing the perfect system for never letting boys in? What makes you so different? What gives you the audacity to attempt such nonsense!

To which he replies, “I guess, in this instance, there is no perfect answer that I can give to remedy this peculiar situation. All I know is, this is what I want for you as much as for myself.

To which I say, “Screw you and your perfectly charming everything! Now, good sir, please consider my proposal: that we continue this rendezvous without sensational expectations and wild-eyed hopes.

To which he concedes, “Anything for you.




I’ve said it on this blog before: trust is highly flammable. One little spark and it all goes up in flames, baby. I don’t appreciate it when guys play around with me. It’s not cool and I will have none of it.

You hurt me, but that’s okay. I’ve spent the past three years dodging bullets like you. The occasional hit is just a part of the job.

Addition: It should be simple. So fucking simple that it makes you laugh out loud at the thought of all those past relationships that were murky and unclear. I get that now, and I think I’ve found a path to wiser decisions.

Is this my own “Dear John” letter, T-Swift style? I suppose it is, and it’s funny because his name really was John, hehe!

If a girl had been worth having, she’d have waited for you?

No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody.

– F. Scott Fitzgerald

Don’t sit idly by as his life rushes forward. Keep living each day with the same rigour as if you had never crossed paths.

That’s the ultimate test; to see if two lives, two minds, two universes can collide without fatality. A soul mate isn’t someone who completes you. A soul mate isn’t someone who’s there every time you turn around. There’s no balance in that. I already have a shadow, and I don’t want another.

Find the person that expands your horizons and forces you out of your comfort zone. Find a love so adventurous that it make’s you swallow your fears.

Travel the world together. Recreate the world together.

Find the person that makes you feel strong enough and brave enough to change your life for the better.

No waiting involved. Life is too short.

Broken Relationships Should Get The Flick

I’m not in love and I haven’t been for a very long time. It’s ancient history, baby, and I’m not sure if this is a good or bad situation to be in. But hey, this post is not about my love life hehe.


This post is for all the girls out there who are feeling lost in their relationships.

“What happened to the perfect couple that I built up in mind? We strayed so far from who we used to be. I mean, everything would be perfect if we could just go back to how it used to be.”

Yes, at one time or another, I’ve harboured all these crazy emotions in my overloaded cranium. Goodness, I’m glad it hasn’t happened for a lengthy amount of time because, well, emotional stress makes me very mopey and a little chubby :)

Boys, Marilyn Monroe and Cynicism

A wise girl kisses but does not love, listens but does not believe and leaves before she is left.

As I read the words of Marilyn Monroe I realize how very true these words would seem if I look back on the last 12 months of my life …

This could have passed as my life motto.

A previous rendezvous with a certain gentleman, who had as much spine as a puddle of jelly,  left a rather bitter after taste. The immediate implications of such a toxic liaison was an addiction to yoga (to calm my mind) and a dramatic increase in girl’s nights (to calm my heart). After the battle scars of that particularly tumultuous relationship were superficially healed, I learnt how to enjoy being single again.

It was (and still is) bloody brilliant!

Every Lady Loves A Gentleman

Here’s a bit of food for thought…

I’ve noticed that women tend to ask the question “where are all the good guys?”. On the other hand, men tend to ask “where are all the girls?” Period.

Here is the fundamental difference in the way men and women perceive the grand process of finding love. Women go into it with a pre-existing set of criteria that will either make a man “good” or “bad” …and the decision is usually made early on in the relationship. Women can’t stand to waste time: we know what we want and we’re not settling for anything less, but are we sacrificing potential for efficiency?

The Absolute Truth

So, as per my previous post, I’m up late on a coffee high!

After lying in bed for a good hour or two I’ve actually had quite a few revelations about the current state of my love life. Well, to be fair, it’s not entirely appropriate to use the word love. My life has been devoid of love for quite some time now and, up until recently, I had believed it to be fine.

To me love was all about laying yourself bare to another. Couldn’t handle it. Didn’t want to take the risk. I’m the last person you’d call trusting, especially when it comes to men, so when I stumble upon a genuinely nice guy I tend to ruin things by remaining closed off. I can’t pin-point the exact moment when my faith in love died but I will say that it can be resurrected. Surely it can.

Quick Thought – Doubts

Mmm sometimes I feel like I make huge mistakes with guys. Like this one guy that’s on my mind right now. I crack up every time I think about him and I have no clue why.

Even seeing a picture of him cracks me up. And for no apparent reason. Well actually, a thought is occurring to me as I’m typing. I must still like him?

Maybe it’s an adult version of girlish giggles?? Maybe I’m losing my mind…

3am musings on the thought-train.

Update – So I’m updating this post a fortnight after posting it and I gotta say …I’m laughing! See, I always get really obsessive about why things go pear-shaped, even if I don’t like the guy. That’s probably the inner perfectionist coming through. When I think of him now …it’s a very blank feeling. As it should be with men you’re no longer interested in.

When things end it’s for the best. A new beginning. The tide brings in adventure everyday, so let the waves cleanse you!

Update revisited – So here I am re-updating this post a fortnight after my previous update. Hahahaa I must be losing my mind. This guy …is a piece of work. I’m really unsure about wtf im doing with him. Yes you heard correctly. Still going. I should gtfo while I can right? [totally going to see this post again and think to myself ‘why didn’t I listen’]
