Anonymous asked: What is the difference between friendship and love?
Love [luhv] noun:
Now, if you have never felt that way about a friendship, you’re doing it wrong or in denial. If you don’t love your friend, you will not exhibit the qualities of an exceptional one yourself. You won’t care for them, you won’t feel the need to be around them, you won’t miss them. You won’t care if they are sad, you won’t go out of your way to spend time with them. Friendship is love.
Now most consider the notion of love as sexual passion and desire. That’s all fine and well, but let’s be honest with ourselves, things get sexual with or without personal attachment or care for one another. Ask the average teenager, we seem to know all about that these days.
So I propose a wildly radical idea. Make love to and marry your best friend. As much as you may think I am saying this lightly, NO. I’M NOT FUCKING AROUND. I, too, am guilty of throwing the “best friend” title onto several people that have no business in my bed, as I have had several people in my bed that have no business being my friend, but seriously. The love of your life should be the number one person you think of when reading the definition above. They should be the number one person you think of, period end. They should be the friend that you are openly willing to drop the world for just to be with them. That’s what friends are about, that’s what love is about.
And if you don’t believe me, here’s a little known fact. When you fall in love, you are borderline obsessive compulsive with dopamine levels that rank level heroin addict. When you make a new friend- wait for itttt- almost the exact same thing happens. Think about that. Have you ever met someone so amazing and all you want to do is fucking hang out with them, even if you don’t want to sleep with them? YEAH MAN. BECAUSE YOU LOVE THEM. It’s also the same thing with how you are glued to your new friend for six or so months because they’re so amazing and then you find out that they are actually an all around shitty person, sounds awfully familiar to your relationship with what’s-his-face. YEAH MAN. BECAUSE YOUR PASSION LEVELS ON BOTH OCCASIONS CEASED and out came the truth. Blam.
Great question, rock on. A+ for the day.
justanotherkidinthisworld asked: How would you describe yourself to a stranger?
I am determined dreamer and a lover, suffering from the most impressive caffeine addiction. The more I learn, the more I realize I know absolutely nothing, and I’m perfectly okay with that for I’m in a committed relationship with knowledge. Currently double majoring in biomedical engineering and behavioral sciences. I’m a personal trainer, coach, retail manager, and part time model. I dance, run, take yoga, participate in intramural sports, and abuse weights. I have well-established irrational fears of garbage trucks, people touching my face, and being subjected to trenchant criticism. My talents include laughing at my own jokes, being electric, and I’m a superb parallel parker. I’m aggressively fancy at times. My attractiveness is based solely on the fact that I’m 36% boobs, 44% ass, 20% face, and 100% woman. I love breakfast, champagne, skies, tigers, hippos, anyone that loves me back, and hate sleeping alone. I’m probably halfway addicted to sex, and an amateur alcoholic. I work hard but love everything I do harder. I have friends in spite of being myself, and that’s a pretty damn cool thing.
Some call me a Queen. I don’t correct them.
Anonymous asked: What endowments of human character do you find least appealing and why?
Dishonesty concerns me. A lot. I’m a pretty nice person. I don’t judge people. Just be true to you. Living a life of deception seems like it would get awfully tiring, so just don’t lie about who you are. Be honest with me, for yourself. If you’re not nice, don’t say you’re nice. If you aren’t to be held responsible for your actions, don’t give yourself a title of accountability. Surely there are people that love you for who you are. I’ll be one of them, too. But it’s a let down when I find out I was never friends with you, but someone I thought you were.
Passive listeners also concern me. Which at times I feel like I must be the problem, maybe I ramble or have trouble with semantics (as a dyslexic it’s not uncommon), because even as a girl I wasn’t ever listened to. But, I tend to really shut down around these people, at least when they seem inattentive. I don’t talk as much, and I am way less lively. Also, unresponsiveness in a conversation is a really poor quality that many exhibit. And lastly, lack of eye contact.
People that are overall condescending make me straight up angry. When people say, “I can’t believe you-” “Don’t do-” “Why are you hanging out with-” etc. it really makes me want to close off. I don’t care how much I loathe someone or something, if it makes you happy, I want you to keep at it. Everyone deserves happiness. Don’t rain on someone’s parade because you have conflicting interests or oppositions, especially if you aren’t involved.
Stealing. A thousand, no, a million times this. For the obvious reasons. And it really hurts to know that someone would disregard me, a person, for my own material wealth.
I’m going to stop here. As much as ranting about negative and irrational human characteristics is “fun,” it isn’t. I’m out of my comfort zone when picking at people’s flaws, because I’m nowhere near perfect, and I bet people could come up with some nasty things to say about me. So let’s all focus on what we do right and what we can do better =]
