girls vs boys

via

i am one of those girls who loves being a girl...

i love dresses and lipstick and nailpolish,
shopping, and romance and taking pictures
love stories make my heart melt
pink is my first love,
 flowers and sweet notes make me smile,
i squeal inside {and sometimes out loud} when i find something i love,
crying is second nature
and i'm always right

But every so often ... when no ones looking... I sometimes envy the world of guys.

they are much more reasonable,
able to react without emotion,
 they are able to open all jars without ever asking for help,
they can assemble anything
 and bathroom lines are 95% shorter {fact, right?.. it has to be}

what do you love and envy

This post is so spot on to how I feel too! There is a certain ease and drama-free vibe boys seem to enjoy...I also would love to escape from emotions once in a while :)

I love being able to pass off the "check engine" light and being able to cry and feel loved all the same. I love being irrational and yet understood. I envy his ability to stay calm and to adapt so easily...but it's a good balance, eh? :)

I love how they can compartmentalize emotional stuff... I feel like you will never see a guy going to work in tears because his gf just broke up with him.

I also envy their get ready time... nasty to showered, dressed, and ready to go in 10 minutes?! yea ok

I know right?! It's fun being a girl but I just wish we could be less emotional about a lot of stuff. Guys are lucky, they are so carefree or are they? Guys aren't really allowed to cry, it's not part of their macho image.

why are bathroom lines always so short! come on men, you know you're sizing up the man standing next to you...isn't that supposed to take a long time!?

this psot is so 100% true. I wish i could roll out of bed and just look hot. I wish a t-shirt and jeans would suffice. I wish to be able to open JARS!

but without us GIRLS, men wouldn't exist! though we wouldn't exist without men...if ya know what I'm sayin! being girly is fun though :)

I'm glad I don't have a guys handwriting. Or sweaty balls. Too much?? but seriously, those are just gross.

Being a girl and having every excuse to cry as much as I was is wonderful.

I would love to be as rational as men and not have every decision emotion-driven (but maybe I'm just emotional).. and yesterday when I was watching my hubby's baseball game I was wishing I could be a guy when the only facility is a nasty outhouse!!!

jayme said...

ugh, i can't type. its too early. i meant i want is wonderful :)

Jenny said...

hah all that is so true!! it is hard to be a woman sometimes, huh!? I definitely envy the shorter bathroom lines and the fact that there is A LOT less drama between guy friends! they don't sweat the small stuff!

You nailed it!

You are SO right! I love being girly, but guys have it pretty easy!

Ditto times ten and then some!

Sophie said...

YESS i know exactly what you mean! its so true! however, i was a major major majorrrr tomboy growing up haha! but ever since i turned 10 i realised that being a girl is pretty awesome! xx

I love that boys get to be the brave ones. And that the girls get to be the mom's and the ones who dress up. I too love being a girl! :)

Although, bathrooms are also 95% dirtier. I love being a girl, and I wouldn't trade it for being a boy- but I do envy some of the stuff that they don't have to do. Maybe it's our society or maybe it's genetics, but why can't we just roll out of bed in the morning like they do?

Aw...I really like this. I'm kind of in between, too, especially because I live with four guys. :) They see the world differently than we do, that is for sure.

every time i go backpacking {especially in winter} i desperately wish i were a boy and could pee without dropping trou. sigh... but then again, i get a ton of free things {drinks, into concerts, cell phone assistance at verizon, etc.} because i play up the cute girlness. i guess maybe it's better this way. :)

Consider The Lilies said...

i completely agree. sometimes i feel like men have it WAY easier. they're so emotionless. ha :D

Ashley said...

such a great post! i envy their ability to just play xbox instead of needing to talk about emotions....oh and if we were to ever get stuck in the wilderness (you know - the crazy wildernesses of atlanta)they'd totally have the advantage when it came to potty breaks!

Shalyn said...

OH SO TRUE. I just envy that they don't have to push a baby out of their down parts! ha...I am a little scared of that one!

Jordan said...

I LOVE being a girl for so many reasons--pink, it being socially acceptable for me to cry whenever I want, high heels, long hair...the list goes on and on.

I was talking to a guy today who was saying the thing that has always struck him about girls is that we are trained to be competitive with one another from childhood. I don't know if this is exactly true, but I definitely get jealous that guys aren't as cut-throat with one another as women are. Can't we all just get along? Catty and mean girls be gone!

Loved this post, and love your blog! You are hilarious and I admire the way you tell it like it is.

Hear hear! I'm totally with you on that!

Amanda said...

I love this post! I'm all over being a girly, girl :)
