Stone or Gem? Designer or No-names?
Been hearing a lot about the marketing strategies of girls recently. You should market yourself so you’re not easily attainable – be a gem, not a stone. Be a designer brand, not a no-name brand. Makes you feel a little like a cow being branded, doesn’t it. Wake up and smell the morning coffee guys, cuz girls are NOT cows. or jeans, or jewels, or pebbles. I guess this strategy works for some people. But a relationship based on this kind of mentality seems to border on the superficial side… Isn’t there more to a person than just their availability? No matter how unavailable someone is, if they are completely lacking in substance, i don’t think that should make them a gem. And if someone has inner substance, does being genuine really turn them into a stone? I’d hope that people could see beyond that. Apparently not.
True, coming off as desperate is a no-no… but i think that’s more because *being* desperate is bad, not seeming desperate. On the other hand, having to confidence to go for what you want, i would think, is a good thing. Rather than sitting there timidly waiting for the guy to make the first move, then not picking up the damn phone. Isn’t that a little played out?
Or maybe i just don’t know how to play to game so i’m hatin’ on it instead…
