i mean you don’t necessarily know my family’s wealth, but regardless, I don’t care about someone’s socio-economic background so long as they have goals and aspirations and aren’t sitting around not doing anything with their lives. I don’t like people that are content with their lives when they know they can be doing something much more worthwhile.
with that said, i tend to date guys who don’t have a lot of money so there’s that. I don’t think “poor” would be the correct word to describe them though because they don’t live below the poverty line.
i’m honestly so lazy at work right now…my laptop charger is in my backpack which on the back of my chair but i don’t want to turn around and grab it…i also really have to pee, but i’m too lazy to do that too…i just wanna nap :(
Thanks Clayton. That is really kind of you to say :)
because people are fucking stupid.
- Societal expectations of masculinity
- Societal expectations to provide for women
- No long term reversible male birth control
- Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at
- Unfair treatment in child custody battles
- No support for male victims of domestic abuse
Not men’s issues
- The friend zone
- Women not dating you
- “Fucking femnazis”
is this satire? I fucking hope so. “Men’s issues” ? Societal expectations of masculinity/providing for women? Is this 1950? Alimony applies to both men and WOMEN (at least in California). this is the dumbest thing i’ve ever read.
Let’s get some shit cleared up right here real quick. First of all, the shit circulating on Tumblr right now claiming to be “Standing on the Sun” by Beyoncé is not the real song. It’s the commercial chopped and screwed into 4+ minutes. How do I know this? Because I’ve watched the commercial a fuck ton and there is NOTHING new in the so called “leak.”
Secondly, people that get mad about leaks and pirating music don’t know anything about the music business. Beyoncé makes far more money from touring, commercials and other business ventures than she does from her CD. Her CD is important to make those things happen, but then again, they are happening and making her millions and she hasn’t even released new material.
Anyway, many artists purposely leak their music now to generate hype - I don’t think Beyoncé is doing this, but many artists do. Pirating music doesn’t kill the music industry nor does it kill the artist - studies have shown that piracy actually helps artists.
So there’s that.
You want to travel with them. You want to see what they’re like going through airport security, on planes, in strange countries. You want to meet their families and charm them to pieces. You want to nestle into their childhood beds and look around in the dark at all their old posters. You want to see all the embarrassing photos of them with braces and socks pulled up mid-calf. You want to hear all the stories about their drunken nights under the bleachers and their best friend’s jokes. You want to read all their journals, see how they took notes in high school. Did they use pen or pencil? What color highlighter? You want to work with them, just to see them work. You want to go out with them. You want to make out with them in the bathroom. You always want to touch them; you want them to always want to touch you.
You find reasons to disentangle yourself from them; it’s only going to hurt later, you can tell already. You stay up way past your bedtime for them. You look at the clock and know their schedule. You neglect other people and other things, and beat yourself up about it. But it’s like they have a hold of your hands and your voice, and you don’t mind. It’s like you’re trapped in an hourglass; you know your lungs might fill with sand, but there’s something sensual and comforting about the grains sliding down glass walls and pooling around your ankles, your knees, your waist.
You like things about their appearance that the rest of the world may cringe at and call strange, less than perfect. Their broken, reshaped noses; their little teeth or the gaps in between them; the way they pull their hair; their narrow hips; their wide shoulders; the depth of their pores. You can laugh when funny things happen in bed. You usually want to be in bed with them.
You think they’re smarter, better, friendlier, fitter, happier, more productive than you are. You strive to be as much as they are, as good as they are. You try to cheat and figure out what it is they’re going to teach you, if they’re going to fall from grace, if you’re going to play a part for them that you never thought you’d play before. You try and pull patterns and threads of meaning from the conversation or the way they looked at you the first time you met; what they did, what they offered. An apple stolen from the bar. Notes from a guitar. Pitchers of free beer. Pieces of bark with writing on them.
You cherish snippets of them; paste them up in your memories like old faded scrapbooks clutched to chests for generations. Their skin glows black and white in your head. They star in the little short films of your life that sneak up on you when you’re not looking. Like the walk to the South End for dinner on a quiet corner. The feel of the sun beating down on you both at an outdoor concert. The way they ordered wine on your first date. The slow swing of a hammock near a lake. The back seat of their car.
You can see yourself with them in the future you can’t quite see. You build apartments outfitted with all the right kitchen supplies and the perfect bed with two nightstands, each piled with books and magazines. You wait for them patiently while they chase their dreams; they wait for you patiently as you chase yours. You sit in bed eating dinner late at night, drinking tea and wine and whiskey as you tell each other all about the chasing. You create adopted dogs and cats; you have awkward conversations about money; you put up with each other’s crap. You see what they look like standing at the end of a candle-lit aisle in your grassy front yard and wonder if you’ll make it to the other end to meet them or if they’ll just end up in the scrapbook clutched to your chest or flickering on the screen in your brain.
