When we imagine the guy we’ll fall madly in love with, the guy riding in on the white horse or the guy who sweeps us off of our feet, its usually a guy who embodies all of those traits.
Yet this guy is usually the last one we’re looking for.
He may come off as a bit corny, boring, may not be as sexy, may lack swagger at times or truth be told just isn’t the guy that we envisioned we’d wake up next to for the rest of our lives. And he’s probably not a challenge.
But he’s the good guy, the guy our parents want us matched with, and the guy who’ll do right by us.
Why is it that we chase and wait to be chased by the guy opposite of everything we need in life? Why do we settle for a man who isn’t the best of everything we deserve? Why do we complicate our own lives by the men we fall for? And why do we complain about the lack of good men when we’ve probably “friended” a good amount of them?
I don’t know what happens to us in life that completely changes our perspective on the good and bad guys but I’m pretty tired of dancing with the bad boys. Maybe because deep down there’s a little bad girl in all of us, but at what point do we embrace being women who make better decisions?
