I love my interns and recently joined them chatting about boy situations. I hate to see them hurting and one of them was “hurtin’ for certain.”
I asked what was going on, and I saw a lot of the usual suspects showing up. Confusion, frustration, doubt, sadness, hurt and downright pissedoffness (yes, that’s a word!) and as I saw the texts fly before my eyes, my heart hurt a little for these ladies. I know what it feels like to share a connection, feel the like and then say “wtf?” when they don’t call, follow through or leave you hangin.
It’s hurts like a b*tch.
I then saw them go into LAM (Lady Attack Mode) that I had seen myself and so many of my friends default to in the past. “He’s an @sshole. He’s a douchebag. He’s a player. He doesn’t deserve you. They are all @sshats. Men suck.” I think you know the drill.
Because I know and have been there. Many, many times…. The time when you are hurting or even get merely a whiff of rejection. Without trying too hard we are usually able to assemble a pretty kick @ss army of ladies to join the fight. They come baring the boxed wine, chocolate, and technology necessary to make their friend feel better, get a buzz and slay the enemy through cyberstalking, mean texts and not-so-cryptic tweets and status updates.
But wait! (Mind blowing starting in 5-4-3-2-1)
What if they aren’t the enemy?
That’s right, in honor of Ladies Dating Badly week, Brit and I put together this short radio show to address, “What you DON’T know about guys. And guess what ladies, there may be a lot. We want you to see the other side of guys that you may not see and is possibly holding you back from finding the right ones.
Listen and tell us what you think.
Based on an article by Kira a bit ago. Read the full article here.
