Rule of the Day: ACCEPT FAILURE.
This is going to be my least sarcastic post ever. Usually, your guys need the sense beat into you, but this is a sensitive subject.
We've all been there before... You put your heart on the line and shared your feelings for a girl, and she shoots you down. She doesn't even care that sharing feelings is like, the HARDEST THING any man can do (mainly because sometimes we don't have any). SHE DOESN'T EVEN CARE that she could get a FREE MEAL out of you! She's already decided that she's better than you and doesn't want to give you a chance.
I mean, come on. There are 6.8 Billion people in the world and 300 Million people in the United States. HALF of them are chicks. Folks are constantly shuffling around looking for love, because NO ONE wants to be alone. The odds are in our favor.
And besides that...
YOU ARE AWESOME!!!* (There's even a website about it.)
Here is the sure-fire, 100% way to get over a girl: If you tell a chick you like her, and she doesn't return the sentiment, you now know that she OBVIOUSLY has bad taste, and getting to know her would probably bore you to tears eventually. Believe me, the ONLY reason a girl is not in your arms right now is because none of the girls you currently know are awesome enough for you. As great as Non-Committal Make-Outs are, compatibility always makes it like, a buh-trillion times more greater.
So make "I AM AWESOME" your mantra. Never let yourself forget it. Our friend The Wanderer put it very eloquently once: "The goal is really just to not fail at least once." (He's married.)
*In order to be completely sure you are awesome, first ask yourself these questions:
- Do I strive for quality in everything I do?
- Do I know what I'm good at and what I'm not good at?
- Do I focus on refining and using my strengths and skills, but still try to improve in my weaker areas?
- Am I kind to people when it doesn't matter?
If so, then congratulations!
