So I was traipsing around the old Facebook lately (traipse and Facebook are two words I never thought would co-exist) and I came across an old friend who had posted this status;
"Dear girls: make this your status and i bet NO boy can write a paragraph in your inbox to make u smile. Lets see who the sweetest boy on facebook is. So girls copy and post this. And guys, no matter if ur single or not, prove us girls wrong"
You know me, I would be all over that. And I was. At first I tried to negotiate a prize (she did say it was a bet) but that didn't go well with her not responding, so I got bored and just sent it her in a message anyway. This is 174 words long, which may make it a bit long, but it still fits with the parameters of a paragraph.
"You are a sweet and kind young woman who has been through more than any one person should do, but still has the strength and pride that a lot of people don't. You're talented, funny, and if I like you, which I do, you must be something special. You have your talents, and you have your success. You let what happened to you shape you in to a good person, when it could have easily destroyed you. You took the time to talk to me, which, again, is more than most. You're able to see who a person really is, and that is a rare and beautiful talent. Even if you care sometimes about what other people might think, you still do what you want to do, you don't let other people stop you from being you. You're wonderful, which makes that a very good thing to do, and a good way to live. I truly believe you could do anything you set your mind to, even smile at something I said to you."
Her response? Dawwwwwwww. And she confirmed that I made her smile. So, I proved a woman wrong. I'm not sure which one, because this is one of those chain mail statuses I usually avoid, but I proved there are still nice and sweet guys out there.
And that I fucking rule. Fuck yeah. I won.
I've done things like this a few times really. I can only remember doing it once in public though. I can not bear to see a person put themselves down. The only time I remember doing it in public was when I left a comment on NellieVaughn's blog. I'm too tired to find the actual post, plus she never replied anyway. I'd offer to say something about you, but it would sound the same as everything else so it's not really worth it. Plus there are some people I just don't know enough.
P.S I am the greatest man that ever lived.
P.P.S I'm single.
