So of course I conveniently come down with the office cold during the end of the week. But that's beside the point and this post will be affected with a few rambling thoughts because of it.
All I wanted to do was to find cold medicine but I was bombarded with the ever so popular chocolate and red roses holiday extravaganza at the nearest drug store.
What I was immediately distracted by was the sight of "The Perfect Man". Not just any man, but a man who promised to be rich and sweet. I posted this photo online with the caption, "OMG, found the perfect man. He's not intimidated by you, he doesn't make you overanalyze and he doesn't talk back! Brilliant. #singlebutfierce #iluvchocolateholidays."
In an instant, there were likes and comments from single friends, married friends and annoying sisters who turned things inappropriately.
But it made me think. Do we all agree on who "The Perfect Man" really is?
Is he tall or short, younger or older, skinnier or built, rich or at least has a job, lives on his own, calls a lot or doesn't call at all...and the list keeps going.
What all women really want is for "The Perfect Man" to just stop making us think so hard. If you like us, tell us. Not on a piece of paper circling yes or no, or sending misleading text messages or making the occasional phone call to check up on an old flame.
Women are usually seen as emotional but we just want honesty and no games. You get to a certain stage from moving on from past relationships that when you reach a certain point, you really just want things to be easy.
"The Perfect Man" doesn't make things complicating because he knows you already have a million things going on in your life so HE makes the effort to be a apart of it. He makes you laugh and hears you out on all your crazy ramblings. He gives you space when you need it and he appears when you need him the most.
Until then, does he exist? Yes, in the form of this milk chocolate...he promises to be rich and sweet.
