It’s interesting to see the contrast between western and eastern cultures. I just watched an episode of Sailor Moon S and they’re talking about how first kisses are special and meaningful and there’s Filipino soap operas where characters seldom kiss unless it’s a corny peck or a raunchy sex scene (which is even more rare unless it a “mature” show). And here I am in America watching the O.C. reruns where these kids are making out at least once every episode if not more. And America, where kids are losing their viriginities at young ages, losing meaning in physical affection and every weekend college kids are hooking up with randos.
It’s just something I’ve thought about lately, being caught between the two cultures almost being Filipino-American. I’ve sided more on American values, I do admire eastern culture’s value in reservation. In the world I live in, it’s almost refreshing and cute how innocent they are.
is a phrase that bores me. Doesn’t give any valid reason for the decision being made. Back your actions up with reasons then I wouldn’t be giving people shit for the decisions they make.
And that’s what I find most frustrating when it comes to helping people. I want them to change when I call them on their shit but I know it’s not that simple. I know some people do not take that approach well. You can’t just change because someone points out your miserable with yourself. It’s only when you’ve decided for yourself you want to change your life. People can force you into interventions, see therapists, and go to rehab, but if you yourself don’t want to change then nothing will ever change. You’ll be stuck in cycles until you’re ready to say “I’m Ready.”
Telling me how long you fucked someone just the other day does not make me think, “DAMN he must be good to last that long!” but rather, “Why are you telling me this?”
If you’re tryna keep me interested why go and talk about an experience you’ve had with someone else right before you talked to me? It’s a huge turn off. LOL Take note, this is definitely how not to get a girl.
I mean I see their physical features but unless I see some personality I don’t really care.
If they aren’t on the same page, moving at the same rate in the same direction, it’s easy to lose connection with one another. No matter how much you love each other, the relationship just ends up coming undone.
