I recently had an interesting tête-à-tête with one of my very good friends and casually asked him if he could date me, he said “No, I can’t date a girl like you-you are too opinionated and empowered, you know too much. I need someone I can tame.” I was flattered and offended at the same time. You see, girls like me are not timid, girls like me are not conventional. Girls like me are opinionated and ask too many questions. We ask all the whats, whys and hows. Girls like me prefer the term ladies. Girls like me are super ambitious and have dreams. Girls like me question the society and absurd norms. Girls like me are not made of spice, we are made of tangling ice. Girls like me cannot be controlled, we’re like wildfire that warms your soul.
Girls like me have plans, either to get to you or to get away from you. Girls like me are stubborn because we are worth every inch of effort. Girls like me work very hard and know what it feels like to earn a living. Girls like me go from shift to shift trying to make ends meet, we graduated first in our class, and even if we had babies before that, we still kick ass. Girls like me don’t go fighting over boys, because we are busy building empires with men who understand our values. Girls like me value loyalty and we have no time for small talk. Girls like me hustle until our feet hurt. Girls like me are not afraid to work the ground up, we sweat at it, maybe a little more. Girls like me swing chairs in the corner office and sign deals in the boardroom.
Girls like me are worth more than a coffee date and a half-eaten sandwich. Girls like me make you think about the future because we know not only to motivate but to get your rolling. You see, girls like me are not afraid to ask you out on a date and foot the bill – we understand equality. We are not angry feminist but we will earn every ounce of your respect. Girls like me do not judge depending on the zeros in your account or whether it’s a six-pack over six cars because we value ambition and futuristic visionary companions. Girls like me aren’t afraid to stunt it because we earned it.
Girls like me might pass as being too much, but honey, we are more than enough and are conscious about it. Girls like me travel and value experiences. Girls like me love parties just as much as much as enchanting books. We know about bonds, taxes and investments as we do about different lipstick shades. We love art while still pursuing science. We form solid friendships and clap for our own. We have morals and values. Girls like me will laugh way too hard at your jokes and make you feel at home. Girls like me smile even with a million broken pieces. You know girls like me are crazy; we are made of thick skin and elastic hearts.
