I sincerely hope that some of my blog readers are girls because this post is all about those boys.
As a vigilant Nicholas Sparks fan, I have always had my ideal man in my head (It doesn't matter that he looked like Ryan Gosling) but the reality is that not all of them are romantic heroes and will take us rowing on a lake covered with birds. This often causes us to reject boys, even if they like us! It doesn't matter if they don't come up to you and get on one knee to ask you on a date; it's the twenty-first century, being asked out over Skype or Facebook is fine.
I know from past experience that I have said no to guys purely because they asked over Facebook but the reality is that they may just be shy of your reaction. There is definitely nothing more humiliating than being turned down in the middle of the school cafeteria.
Another issue that many girls have problems with is when guys try to take advantage of you. I have had past experience with this and I know how flattering it is to be constantly complimented and then suddenly be told that they don't want a relationship or worse still, to be ignored completely for no apparent reason. It hurts. I know it hurts. The thing is, they are obviously not worth it. Everyone tells you to wait for that perfect boy as he is out there but I disagree. Do not wait for that perfect boy, highschool romances rarely last but wait for that perfect man. A man who will treat you right, who will respect you and stay with you through thick and thin, a mature man. Trust me on this.
It is simply not worth the pain and angst chasing after a pathetic highschool boy who is hardly passing school.
One passing remark, don't expect a romantic literary hero and you won't be disappointed. Wait for that perfect man who will respect you and stay with you for the rest of your life, for better or worse.
