A few weeks ago, I read a magazine article discussing how men fell in love with girls’ quirks. The guy writing the article loved how one girlfriend always used to wear red converses. He loved how another always used to eat the same kind of pie for dessert. Made me realize that you should really embrace the weird little things that make you unique…someone could be falling in love with that quirk. Some things that I will no longer worry about? People giving me strange looks when I read a magazine starting from the back cover. People commenting on how I sometimes snort when I laugh too hard. The fact that I sometimes don’t want to fix the mousy brown frizz-fest on the top of my head…also known as my hair. I will also no longer feel ashamed pulling my hand away when someone holds it the “wrong” way.
So, girls (and guys), go out and be your quirky self. Someone will love you for it!
“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.”
