Unshaken Joy (And How To Get There)

Dear men,

I’m doing it. I’m CALLING YOU OUT. And I’m gonna tell you the things you should do because we as women WANT you to do these things (or at the very least, this woman wants you to do these things).


I’ll preface this all by saying that men, I think you’re great. I love how different you are from women. I am thrilled that your minds work in a COMPLETELY FOREIGN WAY to me. In fact, you not having CRAZY GIRL BRAIN is what makes relationships WORK. All in all, I think you’re tops.


But there’s some things you just gotta stop doing. And there’s some things you just gotta start doing.  ENTER ME AND MY WISDOM. I’m gonna give you five tips of how to MAN UP in life (and just to level the playing field, I’m gonna be telling women how to to WOMAN UP in the near future).


NO. 5: Stop telling women they look “NICE” and/or “GOOD.”


NO. 3: Stop FRIEND-ZONING yourself.

NO. 2: Be HONEST. 

NO. 1: FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD, LEARN TO ASK A GIRL OUT. 


So there you have it, men. These are some things I wish (and I think most women wish) you would do. I know all of these items amp up the possibility of rejection. Just remember, though, that  at the very least, most women will RESPECT YOU for being up-front. And we’re not monsters. We won’t laugh out loud or mock your efforts. Instead, we’ll probably do our best to keep from hurting you. But even if you do get hurt or rejected, isn’t it better to get everything out in the open rather than to spend MONTHS considering doing so? You won’t die of straight-forwardness.


I, however, might die OF IRRITATION listening to you as you beat around the bush and avoid the above tips.
