from Walking on Fire: Haitian Women’s Stories of Survival and Resistance by Beverly Bell
I got so excited when I stumbled upon this book at the library today. It was lying on a shelf in the wrong section of the stacks, almost like it was waiting for me to find it. :)
I’ve just started reading it, but this story really resonated with me, and I had to share.
gahhh am I the only person who gets so annoyed by “nice guys” complaining about how women don’t like them or whatever? It’s like seriously? It doesn’t matter how “nice” you think you are, if I don’t want to date you, then I don’t want to friggin date you. And I don’t have to give you a reason or justify it (although I personally would just cause I think it’s nice to, and I’d want a guy to do the same for me)There’s nothing wrong with that, and there’s probably nothing wrong with you either. I just wasn’t attracted to you, oh well. It happens, it stings a little, but you know what, if you’re as nice as you constantly say you are, then you should have no problem finding a girl who is attracted to you and who does want to date you!
Sorry if this sounded mean, but I see boys post stuff like that all over facebook and I’ve had a couple of guys say this to me in real life and it always gives me these “what-right-does-that-bitch-have-to-not-want-to-date-me” vibes, and it’s really unsettling.
