I'm A Crappy Girlfriend

After reading this, I've decided that I make a crappy girlfriend.

1. I am too nice: Men like bitches. I'm not bitchy. I can't help it; it's just the way I am built. Now don't get me wrong -- I can get mad at the dude just fine. But being bitchy for the sake of being bitchy isn't my thang.

2. I am too accommodating: If they ask me to go camping, I go. If they want to go eat sushi, I go. What can I say? I'm really just that easy to please. Because guess what? Making a fuss over stupid shit like not wanting to go camping is stupid.

3. I fall too hard. And I don't mean down the stairs.

4. I am too giving. I don't mind making dinner for us every once in a while. Wait. Maybe I'm a bad cook, and I don't realize it?...

5. I am a virgin. And I plan on staying that way until I'm married. I'm fairly certain this freaks dudes out.

6. I don't use a tanning bed. Or a nail salon. Or dye in my hair. Or Botox. What you see is what you get.

Excuse me while I go talk to my plants now.

I've been looking for a crappy girlfriend just like you.

So, what are you doing this weekend? ;)

I used to think the exact same thing -- for pretty much those same reasons as you listed. However, I have recently found out that the problem wasn't ME, it was the guys I was dating. Apparently the person to appreciate you is out there, but you just have to go out with a bunch of idiots first. Who knew?

Odd, the 'men like bitches' biz.

Although we espouse liking calm, straightforward women (like you, Sandy) somehow the bitches get the upper hand.

Been there myself, more often that I want to admit.

Dammit.

Now I wouldn't go that far. There are certain guys who think bitchiness is a good thing, but - it doesn't make for good long term material. Bitchiness is sometimes tied to sex appeal, meaning it's more physical than emotional, and we know how those turn out. In the end we go for the good girls. It's just a matter of dating all the idiots first, like Amber said. :)

funny, my word verification had this part in it: "dibch" - see? even Blogger's on your side!

The bitches do get the upper hand with some men (like our beloved Wombat) because those women offer what those men want.

But not all men -- or women -- want the same things in relationships.

In fact, some men want what you have.

Boys are so stupid. That's all. I've decided to stop giving them the time of day. We, my friend, have a lot to offer, but they don't insist on being stupid.

Bitches suck.

I was reading your post and after the first four points I thought to myself, "She seems like a good girlfriend to me".

Then I read point five.

since when was not using a tanning bed/nail salon/botox a bad thing?

My parents always pushed the idea of waiting until marriage. But sexual compatibility is so important to a relationship - I would never leave it to chance by waiting for marriage. Possibly until engagement, but there's so much that could go wrong - you want to have an escape hatch.

Our society is so saturated with sex, so it's refreshing to encounter someone who is waiting to put out. After years of casual sex, I realize how trivialized the act has become and want it to be special again, instead of an expression of hormones.

It does seem like the "nice guys" and "nice girls" take longer to find someone, but I've noticed that their relationships tend to be more enduring, too. If only this patience thing was easier...

Sorry, I dont buy it. You will be a great girlfriend, you need to find the right guy first. one who appreciates you and all of those things.

I can relate to most of your points. And we're AWESOME people!

You said it perfectly...

I think you're right about men liking bitches. I think because these women have a hard-to-get flavour about them.

As for staying "that way" until you're married....if it's freaking someone out....then you don't need to waste your time on him anyway. But you know that.

Have you quit us?

I love you just the way you are! NOW WRITE A NEW P0ST BEFORE I DIE!!!!

virgin? c'mon girl, take a ride on the guy before you get married. You test drive the car before you buy it, right? If you marry him, you could be stuck in a life of shitty sex, and never know what greatness in the sack really is.

I’m starting to feel like I’m the only one dealing with dating issues? Has anyone been able to locate any decent single sites out there? I know I have been all over the web searching for activities that don’t cost an arm and a leg? I’m not the type of person to give up easily I’ve been on several sites looking for local events. The only one I was able to find is http://www.singlesinmotion.com does anyone know of any other?

you actually a great girl!!!!

now for that virgin thing you will only ever marry a very religious christian who feels like waiting as well. which if that is your kind of guy , then your perfect. if it's not hen you might want to reconsider.

the best girl for me in this catagory, is a girl who will only have sex with a guy she is in love with (AND DATING). problem is most women have sex with practiclly anyone they find attractive, and then "dont see them selves as sluts"
