I have no inspiration right now. Well - I have a little, but no time to put it on the screen.
So here's a picture of Shemar Moore (thanks to Baking Suit).
If that's not inspiring, I don't know what is.
I see these memes all the time. Graphics about having a great guy/kid/parent, instructing facebookers to post if they have one of the aforementioned that meets the listed criteria.
They kinda drive me nutty.
I'm not sure why. Maybe because they seem phony. Most women I know complain about their husbands and boyfriends in private, then pretend in public that he's the greatest. Or maybe it's because it's not an original thought, they're just sharing a post. Or maybe it's because the posts are, in a way, designed to make others who don't have those things feel bad.
The most recent one I've seen told people to share "if you have a wonderful man who is your whole world, who isn't perfect but is perfect for you, who works hard and would do anything for you, who makes you laugh, who is your best friend and sometimes your only friend, who you are thankful for everyday..."
I very nearly shared to my wall in honor of my cat. He's a guy who makes me laugh and is sometimes my only friend. Honestly, the only thing that doesn't apply is the hard-working part. He really doesn't.
I don't want to belittle anyone's gratitude for their awesome husband. A part of me just wants to point out that even those of us who are single can have wonderful people in our lives who are worth appreciating.
Besides - even us singletons deserve corny, poorly-written, unoriginal posts to share.
Have you seen the Buzzfeed list of 29 Startlingly Honest Dating Confessions?
Confessions I find totally reasonable:
• I stopped dating someone because I didn't like his Netflx queue.
Confessions I find totally unsurprising:
• I'm dating someone for his money.
• I'm dating a man that's as old as my father.
• I run background checks on every guy before I start dating him.
Confessions I suspect will lead to big problems:
• I'm dating a dad, but have no interest in being involved with his kids...I just love him so much.
• We act like we're dating but he won't make it official. He just says "we will." I've fallen...I hope he's serious.
....and now, a few of my own personal, startlingly honest dating confessions...
• I have gone on dates solely for free meals, blog material, and/or sex.
• I have lied to end a bad date quickly.
• I have dated people longer than I wanted, just because I was bored.
• I would rather make a guy break up with me than have to do the breaking up. I'm always afraid I'll cave if he asks for another chance.
• I have dated guys who I honestly believed to be out of my league.
• I think I might have a fear of commitment.
