DearÂ Â â€œI Can Change Himâ€ Women,
I write this open letter with love. I realize that sometimes you meet someone that seems perfect in so many ways. Fits you like the puzzle piece youâ€™ve been missing. Heâ€™s charming, heâ€™s funny, heâ€™s interested in you too, and not to mention, heâ€™s smokin hotâ€¦BUTâ€¦ he hates cuddlingâ€¦he ignores you COMPLETELY when football is onâ€¦heâ€™s cheated on EVERY woman before you (sometimes with multiple women, Kat Von D).
Donâ€™t get it twistedâ€¦he may be able to MASK the real him for a while. He told you â€œcuddlingâ€ isnâ€™t really for him BUT he knows you want to sooooo the first few weeks he may cuddle up during a movie. Itâ€™s a Sunday and your best friend is having a birthday brunch that you and your man are invited to…during the honeymoon phase of a relationship he may choose to miss a game (as long as itâ€™s not one of his 3 favorite teams) to join you for mimosas Â and memories instead of beer and ball. AND FINALLYâ€¦the dreaded CHEATER. Iâ€™m not talking about the guy that cheated on his girlfriend in high school by kissing another girl after the pep rally or the man that cheated on a past girlfriend ONE time and vowed (to himself…this is not something that is shouted from the rooftops) from that moment on, he would NEVER do it again. Iâ€™m talking about the guy that cheats on practically every girlfriend and EVERYONE knows it.
Youâ€™ve been warned by your friends, youâ€™ve been warned by HIS friends, youâ€™ve been warned by EVERY woman magazine that has done a story on Sandra Bullockâ€¦but â€œitâ€™s different with you, you can change him.â€
This is where my favorite Southern Phrase comes into playâ€¦Bless Your Heart.
Iâ€™m not saying people CANâ€™T changeâ€¦I am saying YOU CANâ€™T change someone. You can accept that person for who they are and deal the good and the bad that comes along with them, but donâ€™t be disappointed when they reveal to you exactly who they are. ESPECIALLY if theyâ€™ve told youâ€¦or showed you (Jessie James) exactly who they are and what they do. Who knowsâ€¦they may change because they decide itâ€™s the right thing for themâ€¦but donâ€™t expect it.
Iâ€™ve been there before and Iâ€™m not trying to say that I wont ever do it again (hope I wontâ€¦but you never know. Love can blind you) â€¦but there are a few key phrases that if I catch myself saying themâ€¦I think twice.
â€œBut I love himâ€
â€œI can change himâ€
â€œBut Iâ€™m differentâ€
Feel free to add to the list friendsâ€¦and GOOD LUCK!
