Knowing better

When we were having girls night the other night, this was the phrase that came out:
“I think she is one of the most intelligent yet least wise women I know”
























Why is this the case? Why do we women do this? We know better - we know what we ought to do and most of the time already know the answer to our questions we are asking. We are beautiful, clever, intelligent women but we are NOT WISE when it comes to relationships and the ooey-gooy feelings with boys. Boys get all up in our heads and make us forget how independent, gifted and confident we are.

SO FRUSTRATING! Its because we women are emotional beings...as soon as our feelings are involved, all rational goes out the window. Well, not always, maybe I'm just speaking from personal experience...

boys only "get up all in your head" if you let them...right?

Its true. The smartest girls always end up dating total tools. I am pretty sure its a fact.

Got here through Erika Haub's blog and have been reading for a while.

I'm the dad of a 23 year old woman I raised in the--in many ways--unfortunate conservative Christian environment.

I wish you wouldn't continue to encourage unhealthy stereotypes here.

Sometimes growing up is the best response.
