It’s 2017, and I’m still sick of people being on my ass for being too “picky” about men. I value myself, my time, and my life way too much to go through the motions with some dude for the sake of having someone. Check, please and thanks.
I value men with real drive and aspiration, who can challenge and motivate me but also treat me like a fairy princess. *Hair flip* So all of you calling me picky, remember that when your man is picking his beer gut on the couch in a few years from now and you’re pissed as shit. Just saying.
And Gina Rodriguez, IRL goddess, would agree. Because: ?.
I can’t express how much I love the way Gina took the words right out of my mouth when discussing this annoyance. We talked about waiting for the right guy and also being, wait for it, not picky, but “selective.” Literally me on the inside in that moment:
She gets me.
And she has the perfect answer in six simple words for anyone who assumes we don’t have a man because we’re superficial, conceited, or the wretched “picky.” Get ready to shut them the hell down. Are you ready? Here it goes:
“Because the property value is high.”
But it’s true as hell! Why are we shamed for holding off? Because we’re proud of our worth? Because we’re holding out for someone who matches up, or better yet exceeds our expectations? Nah, absolutely not.
We should pride ourselves on our actions, not feel judged or looked down upon. And when that man comes along, you’ll be the one getting the last laugh.
Gina Rodriguez, you are forever bae.
