People always question why I even bother
Too old for it, lah.. cemen, lah… for
scoring women, lah.. “nulis tuh utk Magdalene Rappler Medium kek”
The way I see it, I simply have something to say. I think I have a few viewpoints to offer that are rarely -if ever- represented by anyone else. And like most people who write, it’s just something I want *out there*.
And what’s the point of writing for people who already agree with your viewpoints already? That’s just plain masturbatory, and it’s nothing but preaching to your own choir.
Sure, writing in ask.fm ain’t exactly like doing the editorial page of The Economist, but I’d like to think that I contribute something tangible. If anything, just so people can see different ways of viewing issues we encounter in life. And as cemen as these matters may be, I had to deal with them at one point in my life. And if someone gave me better tools at the time, I’d be grateful for it.
So yeah, thank you.
To know I’m of use; to know that I’ve made you see things differently, makes it worth it.
Funny how people will carry an umbrella if
there is a 50% chance of rain, but question why you carry a flashlight when
there is a 100% chance if night. And even without the night, I often use my
flashlight to look for things in my car or bag at night, to check cables behind
my sound system, and be the one who locates someone’s missing earring on the
Saying “kan bisa pake henpon” is
like saying “kan bisa pake koran” when it rains. Of course you could,
but personally I prefer always having the right tools for the job.
Besides, when something like this tiny Thrunite Ti3 can throw a dazzling 120 lumen beam, there really is no excuse to not have one in your pocket, everyday. I mean, that is bright enough to blind someone in a self defense situation.
Is it someone who deceives and manipulates
women to fall for him for ego sake, resulting in heartbreak?
Or someone who, despite his best intentions
of being honest and forthcoming about himself, often becomes the object of
manipulative women with hidden agendas to change him… and when she inevitably
fails, results in heartbreak?
And those Lesser Men who call themselves “players”? What, it’s cool to “play” people? Because the word itself implies deception and manipulation. Either way, anything involving lying or hidden agendas is never cool. So I think anyone who claims to be a player or heartbreaker (intentional or not), is a douchebag of the highest order.
Okay, first of all… you don’t want a girl
who *needs* you anyways. You want a girl who *wants* to be with you. Neediness
of any kind is a sure sign to start running. Fast.
That being said.. if you feel insecure to
go after her, then your chances are pretty low as it is. Women can smell
insecurity, and generally find it unattractive. Does it mean your reasons for
being insecure are valid? Not at all. But the way you see yourself, IS.
So adjust yourself mentally, and find a way
for her to know you are interested. If you are concerned that she is the type
who will laugh at you, then she’s not a nice person, and you shouldn’t be
attracted to her in the first place. No guarantees it will be reciprocal, but
so what.. you might as well try.
And always remember The Vipertongue Protocol:
never pursue, persuade, or persist.
Kalau bola sudah disana, then let it be. If
it doesn’t come back to you, let it go and say “NEXT!”
