Pessimist who inspires optimism

I’m a fresh blogger, so please forgive me if I am boring, or ridiculous, or I use inappropriate run-on sentences like a little kid excited to write for the first time. That was a run-on sentence for those of you out there reading this, and who are not as nerdy as I am about the English language. So I guess I should start with why I chose to write this blog.

An online dating site led me to consider writing for strangers. This is funny right? I saw this really angry gentleman on said online dating site, while I was considering joining (for a second time); and I noticed that he had added his blog at the end. It was really like strange advertising because his profile read like he was an arrogant self-absorbed prick, with nothing but time on his hands to write condescending things about women he saw as desperate for putting up profiles. (I’m struggling with whether or not I should insert the hypocrisy of his statements here, of which, he admits to; however I have faith in my readers that you have picked up on this fact). So off I went to blogging land where, I could not stop reading. It was an instant addiction to random thoughts put out by this man, who I am sure is not as atrocious and he led me to believe. He was pessimistic, irritating, but inspiring. Yes, you heard correctly, inspiring. He wrote an expose on sex and dating and as painful as it was to admit I agreed with one of his statements. And this is not the exact wording here, but he said that women wait for a knight to come and save them from their lives. And while they wait for Mr. Perfect, they miss out on life, adventure, and sex. I was not so sure I agreed with the sex part of his argument because he complained that women who hold out on sex in the beginning of relationships are looking to control the men that they are with, and are totally unwilling to engage in more exciting sexual activities. (This is the polite way to rephrase this by the way). I believe women are tired of being treated like sex objects and are just looking for a man to honor and respect their bodies. At least that is what I hold out for. Alas, I digress, I commented on this man’s blog. I hit him with the same pessimistic bullshit he was throwing, but from a woman’s point of view. Now I am wondering whether or not he kept my comment or tossed it aside, because I could have been viewed as a cranky hater. When indeed it is quite the opposite. I want to live adventurously, and if this knight on his mighty steed won’t show up, why should I waste my time? So here, I should also let you know that I thanked him, for talking me out of online dating; and instead, inspired me to get out there and find adventure. And if it so happens that commitment falls in my path, and settling down makes sense, I will take it. Otherwise, leave a message I am too busy discovering what is out there in the world.

So for those of you I have lost in my crazy rambling stream of consciousness, my apologies. But I am now getting to the point of why I am writing a blog in the first place. One of the adventures I truly want in life is to write, and what better way to start than to blog about myself. A little narcissism never hurt anyone right? And if I was glued to the ramblings of a pessimist and I still got the optimistic message, than may be people will see something in my thoughts that will inspire them too. So look out world Amy is now a blogger!

    Not a bad start. Thank you for all the references to my blog. Hahaha! I hope you read more than just that ONE blog, for I have many that have many different thoughts that come from this twisted little mind of mine. I don’t expect women to agree with my thoughts. Nor, do I expect, that I lot of men will either. They are thoughts and feelings from that specific time. I write better when I’m in a bad mood. The words come out easier. Pessimistic, narcissistic, sexist, racist, ageist, bigot, self loathing, hatred, and anger…I’m sure there are a lot of other words out there for me and my feelings. However, I do have more “human” traits, as well…read the rest of my stuff…maybe they’ll shine through. More so than any…I have HOPE. “If it were not for hope, the heart would break.” – Thomas Fuller.

    • Why thank you!! I will continue to reference your blog, because I read them all. (That is why I said that I was glued). I find you interesting, I like what you have to say. In fact, I have told all of my friends to read your blog too. You in truth are not all that pessimistic, especially when you are talking about “neuk[ing] the whales”. And even when you were dismissed from your job, I saw your “silver lining”. The world needs people who stir the pot. (And people like me who use far too many cliche statements). I have a new post coming, I have had some shitty times myself lately, and not enough time for adventures…yet. But indeed, it will inspire some angry words, that in turn become hopeful stories. I at the very least hope to make some people laugh. Thank you Will for following me. Keep writing and I will keep reading. And now I feel you need more comments…and I never shut up about what I think, so brace yourself, hahahahahaha.
