"Those" moments..., Thoughts

Oh, the Horror.

Hello Ellipses. I’m quoting again. This one’s from a American Novelist, Journalist, Screenwriter, Children’s author and Comics writer: Neil Gaiman.

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

An excerpt from the graphic novel The Sandman, #65. It truly was a “comic, for intellectuals”. A good read.

Note though, I’m not bitter. Well…maybe just a little.

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about what women want.

It’s really quite simple. Take out your pen and papers guys.

“Women want a man who’s ambitious, an achiever, whose successful both professionally and financiallywho’s not materialistic.

Women want a man who is solid, steady, consistent and reliable…who’s fun, unpredictable and spontaneous.

Women want a strong-willed, decisive man who takes a stand and doesn’t waver, as long as he’s flexible, open-minded and can admit when he’s wrong

Women want a lot.

Women want a realist who’s romantic. A guy who’s serious but playful, who’s confident but humble.

Women want a man who is career driven but family-oriented.

Women want a man who’s smart but not nerdy

caring but not needy

affectionate but not clingy

protective but not possessive

emotional but not neurotic

funny but not a clown

dominant but not domineering

in control but not controlling.

No Problem.”

Easy right?

“Good to know.

So,again,  take notes guys, and remember, all we gotta be is strong but sensitive, tough but tender, masculine but gentle and manly but vulnerable.”

-Brian Scott Mcfadden







Apparently, women want a schizophrenic, gender-confused guy.


Update: I sure hope you guys saw the sarcasm in this 😀


The value of not knowing.

“It’s ok that you don’t know.

The thing is, if you could see and understand all her feelings, then wouldn’t you lose the desire to know more about her?

‘I wonder what she likes?’

‘I wonder what she thinks of me?’

It’s because you don’t know that you try so hard.

It’s because you don’t know that you often think about her.

So you try to see eye-to-eye and understand her.

All these things that you do and feel, mean that you care about her

and you care enough for her to show you when she’d trust you enough to give you the answers you’re looking for”.



I have always felt that ”the chase is better than the catch”.



Update: By the way, this will only apply if you don’t know. So when the cold hard truth hits you in the facewell bottom line is, either way, “not knowing” was better.
