German Sayings Literally Transtlated Into English

I’m pretty sure that every country has its own sayings in its own language. But what happens when you literally translate them into another language? I’m German and I thought I’d translate some of the things we say into English and I’m pretty sure everyone will think we’re crazy. My work bestie helped me put together this list and I dare you to read it and not laugh.

That makes me nobody so fast after.
I think, I spider.
There bites the mouse no yarn off.
Life is not a ponyfarm.
 With me is not good cherry eating.
How horny is that then?!
I only understand train station.
My English is under all pig.
That is not the yellow from the egg.
There becomes yes the dog in the pan crazy.
Holla, the Woodfairy!
I eat a broom.
Everything is in butter.
He has not all the cups in the cupboard.
The drop is sucked.
You have a beforepicturefunction.
That is all jacket like trousers.
And now butter by the fish.
 You have of tooting and blowing no idea.
Nothing for ungood.
There we have the salad.
I buy not the cat in the sack.
You go me animally on the cookie.
 You are on the woodway.
Now I know how the bunny runs.
Don’t play the offended liversausage.
You can me once.
It makes me foxdevilswild.
Heaven, ass and thread.
I shame me in ground and floor.
Peace, joy, eggcake.
My dear mister singing club.
Don’t go me on the ghost.
Old Swede!
Oh you green nine!
Don’t hang it on the big bell.
He makes out of a mosquito an elephant.
There stays no eye dry.
 I need to bite in the sour apple.
There lies the dog buried.
There is hop and malt lost.
That knocks the barrel the bottom out.
Leave the church in the village.

My 101 Wishes – 76-101

What if you could wish for anything in the world, no matter how crazy it seems or how selfish it is? I feel like all of mankind would go crazy but it would still be pretty cool. I have so many that I thought, I’d put together 101 things that I would love to have or see happening. Some of them could be fulfilled someday, but some are just ridiculous. So here is part 4 and don’t laugh at me.

Make A Wish

076. Talk to animals
I bet we’ve all been at a point, where we just want to talk to our pet and be like: “What the hell do you want from me?” It would be so nice to hear all the stories they have to tell.

077. Live in London
For most of my life, I always wanted to go back to the States and live there. I went back, I changed my mind. Now, I could really see myself living in beautiful London, but with Brexit and all, who knows if it’s even possible.

078. Be a Disney Princess at Disneyland
Definitely not forever cause I’m pretty sure, I’d be annoyed pretty quickly, but maybe for a month or so. Preferably, I want to be Belle.

079. Have the soundtrack to my life playing when something happens
I love how in movies there is always the right music playing in the background of a special scene. I want that in real life.

080. Live in a different era
It would be amazing to be a flapper in the golden 20s and celebrate huge Gatsby-style parties.

081. Have the perfect blogger/Insta friend close to me
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my friends, but none of them really have a thing for social media, blogging or photography. It would be really great to have someone close by to share all of this with. Support is key.

082. Win a Pulitzer Prize
When you’re a journalist and don’t wish for this, are you even a journalist?

083. Have one of those crazy movie romances
You know, the ones that hardly ever happen in real life? Yeah, those. I want a Chuck and Blair kinda thing (I know Gossip Girl is not a movie) because I have a thing for complicated.

084. A make-up applying machine
I want something where I can just type in the look I’m going for, hold my face into and then get it painted.

085. My own comedy/late night show
I’m a funny person who loves to make people laugh and I’ve been told that I should try standup, but I just can’t do everything. And it’s a huge step. But yeah, have a show like that would be pretty cool.

086. Have a Wikipedia page
Technically, I could just make one for myself, but that would be a bit sad. Can you imagine?!

087. Complete my bucket list
At least the realistic things that I can actually influence.

088. Get a Ph.D.
I really hope that I can find the time and motivation someday.

089. Be a marine biologist
In another life, that’s what I want to be. Unfortunately, in this life, I’m a bit scared of the sea and in school, biology definitely wasn’t my strong suit. Life under water is fascinating, which brings me to my next wish.

090. Be a mermaid
If I was a mermaid, I didn’t have to study biology, so that would be a plus. I’m an Aquarius and a good swimmer, it makes perfect sense. I already got the costume at home, too.

091. Forever have a close relationship with my godson
I can’t even tell you how much I love this boy. He turns 7 in December and I love spending time with him. I’m dreading him turning into a teenager but I will do my best to keep our bond as close as it is. And I also can’t wait to become godmother a few more times. I know it’s going to happen.

092. Meet supernatural creatures
I really want to know if there are ghosts, vampires, unicorns and all those magical and supernatural creatures and of course, meet them. Who doesn’t want to have a friend like Casper the friendly ghost?!

093. Be a wedding planner
Man, I definitely need a lot more lives to work in all these jobs. I honestly thought about doing this but since being a journalist is my dream job, I went for that. However, I do hope I can plan a big one, someday. One of my friends will definitely let me do it, at some point.

094. Have a song written about me
It doesn’t have to be a love song, I just want to know that a song was written about me.

095. Some specific material things
A Tiffany necklace or bracelet, a Kate Spade Handbag, a pair of Manolos, original Uggs and things like that. I’m not super interested in big brands, but a few special pieces would be very nice.

096. Meet the British Royal Family
How I would just love to take a look behind the curtain. I want to know what a queen does all day, hang out with Kate and William and definitely party with Harry. And you know, I want to feel like a princess for a day.

097. Be a Victoria’s Secret angel
I don’t want to be a full-time model, I just want to be a VS angel. The shows are absolutely amazing and those women are some of the most beautiful in the whole world. The music, the runway, those gorgeous wings – I want that.

098. Have my own big fat wedding but without the marriage
Just because I don’t want to get married, doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t love a wedding. It would be completely over the top and cost a fortune but it would totally be the dream. But just a warning: I will be a huuuge bridezilla.

099. A super crazy weekend in Vegas
It can definitely happen, I just need to find the right people to go with. I really love my friends, but I don’t think they’re up for it and you can’t have the fun I’m looking for with just anyone. I really want it “Hangover” style before I get much too old for crazy things like that.

100. Pure happiness
I said it in the beginning of the year, I truly just wish for happiness. I’m not sure what exactly will bring me the kind of happiness I’m looking for, but I’ll know when I find it.

101. World peace
I know this sounds cheesy, but if you don’t wish for this, are you even human???

My 101 Wishes – 51-75

What if you could wish for anything in the world, no matter how crazy it seems or how selfish it is? I feel like all of mankind would go crazy but it would still be pretty cool. I have so many that I thought, I’d put together 101 things that I would love to have or see happening. Some of them could be fulfilled someday, but some are just ridiculous. So here is part 3 and don’t laugh at me.

Make A Wish

051. Speak every language in the world
Being able to communicate with every person in the world would be absolutely amazing.  I find it so interesting to learn about different countries and cultures and it would make it a lot easier.

052. Win the lottery
I mean, who couldn’t use that? But I don’t even play, so that makes it very unrealistic. And when it comes to luck, I’m usually not majorly blessed with it. I just want enough to take a year off and travel the world.

053. Figure out what my ultimate dreamjob is and get it
I’m a journalist and I don’t want to be anything else, I just don’t know exactly what I want to do with it for the rest of my life. Still trying to figure that out and taking one step at a time.

054. Have an aquarium built into the wall
When I was a little girl, I had a pink Ariel aquarium and it was lovely. I had another one after that with colorful rocks and marbles but then my parents basically made it theirs and I didn’t have one, anymore. Life under the sea fascinates me and I would love to have a big aquarium built into the wall and a person to take care of it. So beautiful.

055. Meet the Obama’s
It’s not a political thing, I just admire them as people. I even wrote my Master’s thesis on Michelle Obama and I think she’s an incredible woman.

056. Have my own newspaper column
Basically, I want to be Carrie Bradshaw. Write a column, publish books and all that. I don’t want her closet, just her job.

057. The Spice Girls getting back together
I’ve always been a huge fan and still have some merchandize and a big folder full of clippings. They were the best girl group ever and I would really love to see all five of them live on stage.

058. Have motivation 24/7
We’ve probably established by now that I’m lazy but I also love the feeling of being productive. I just have lots of trouble getting myself motivated these days.

059. Be in New York during Christmas time
One day, it will happen. I want to go ice skating at Rockefeller Centre, admire the big Christmas tree and just take in the whole wonderful atmosphere.

060. Read all the books I own
I feel absolutely terrible for writing this, but I haven’t read one book this whole year. I know, I should be ashamed of myself. There are still so many lovely books waiting for me but someday, I will hopefully reach my goal.

061. Being able to beam me to any place in the world
As much as I love airplanes, just beaming myself to any place in the world within seconds is just the dream. Who knows what technology will bring us in the future.

062. Catch all the Pokémon
I don’t really play anymore because it got pretty boring, but I didn’t delete it. So there is still hope.

063. A robot who just does everything I want him to
Yup, lazy.

064. Visit Disneyland during every season
It’s just so pretty how they redecorate for every season and I want to witness it all. I’ve been to Paris during Halloween/fall which was super cool and to California in summer and spring, but I can’t remember that being super special. I liked Eurodisney a lot better.

065. A mini fridge right next to my bed
Lazy, lazy, lazy.

066. Fly 1st class to somewhere far away
I just wanna do that at least once in my life and feel like a million dollars.

067. Have enough money to never have to think about spending it
I don’t need to be filthy rich, I just don’t constantly want to do the math.

068. All the US food I love being available in Germany
There is so much I really miss over here, but when I’m in the States, I also miss German food. If I could really wish for some things in my local supermarket, I’d love Pizza Lunchables, Lucky Charms, Fruit Gushers, the original Doritos, Hot Pockets and just a lot more unhealthy food.

069. I want to be a kid again
Adulting is just not super fun and I’m over it pretty much every day. My childhood was pretty cool so I wouldn’t mind going back for a while.

070. Have Jennifer Lawrence and Adele as friends
I feel like we would get along sooo good. They’re just natural and say whatever they think and that’s definitely my kind of people. I’m pretty sure we would just die of laughter.

071. Knowing what my future is going to be like
I really want to know because I have no clue. I always thought, I would have it figured out by 30 but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. And I’m really impatient and just want to know, so I can stop worrying.

072. All my favorite childhood TV shows back on TV
Because the 90s were just the absolute best and I wouldn’t need anything else on TV. Or well, all the other 3846 shows I watch, but the 90s shows would just be the most amazing thing ever.

073. Be a contestant on “Let’s Dance” ( the German”Dancing With The Stars”)
This is definitely one of my biggest wishes and every season, I always think that I could totally do it. Dancing was always a huge passion of mine, although I don’t really dance anymore, like I did when I was younger, but I wouldn’t even need a second to think about it, even for zero money. I just want to be a contestant.

074. Attend an award show
I’ve been forever obsessed with award shows. I used to stay up all night to watch them live (stupid time difference), I take notes and I just always wish I could attend. I want to do the red carpet, dance in the audience and yeah, I want an award because I’ve got my speech ready.

075. Be really good at rapping
I think it’s just one of the coolest things to do and I’m not super bad at rapping, I just think it doesn’t sound too good. However, I do think that I’m pretty good at doing “Shoop” by Salt-N-Pepa and “Butterfly” by Crazy Town.

My 101 Wishes – 26-50

What if you could wish for anything in the world, no matter how crazy it seems or how selfish it is? I feel like all of mankind would go crazy but it would still be pretty cool. I have so many that I thought, I’d put together 101 things that I would love to have or see happening. Some of them could be fulfilled someday, but some are just ridiculous. So here is part 2 and don’t laugh at me.

Make a wish

026. My own Library
I bet a lot of people have this Belle-fantasy where someone just gives you a huge library. Yeah, I want that. But since probably nobody is going to do that, I will build my own. I already have a whole wall with shelves and 700-800 books in them, so that’s a good start.

027. A penthouse with an awesome New York view
I really don’t need a whole house so a penthouse with a view would just be the dream. And who doesn’t love a great NY view.

028. Go to school at Hogwarts
It’s seriously the ultimate fantasy. Sneak through the hallways, talk to ghosts, have Hermoine as my best friend. But seriously, what if it really exists and we simply don’t know about it cause we’re muggles?

029. Be the star of my own daily soap
Or maybe more of a daily reality show. Just a camera following be around, filming my breakdowns at work, my major chill sessions and just me stuffing my face with unhealthy food. Doesn’t that sound like a hit show?!

030. Have a personal assistant
I think, I would actually be a good one myself, but I’d rather have one. Calling people for me, reminding me of all the things I forget, make me some tea, collect my mail…

031. A remote for everything
Because I’m lazy like that.

032. Be an absolute it-girl
When I was a teenager, Paris Hilton was one of my biggest idols. My walls were covered with her posters, I collected every snippet I found of her in magazines, I dressed a lot like her and well, I also had to take a lot of crap for it. So Maybe I kinda was one already, minus the millions of people also loving me, although I know some did in secret.

033. Have my dream body
Well, who doesn’t want that?! Still lazy, still love junk food too much. Someday…

034. Owning everything on my Amazon wish list.
I don’t even want to know what all of it combined costs.

035. Save the world with Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon was such a cool show and although the character was kind of annoying, the whole transformation thing etc. was amazing and I think we could definitely use her in this world.

036. Celebrate graduation again for two weeks
It’s been almost 10 years since I graduated from high school and the two weeks of partying afterward were really fun. Man, some of my favorite memories are those of our graduation trip to the Netherlands. Fun times.

037. Have my own band
I’ve always loved music and I love to rock out on stage. I was in school bands and choirs but my real own band would be sweet. But who the hell has time for it?!

038. Own a lifetime gift card for H&M
That’s where I order most of my clothes and I give them sooo much money. So please, give me a gift card that lasts a lifetime.

039. Learn all standard and latin dances
Just all of them but I need a dancing partner and I don’t just want some random person.

040. Run my own company
I kinda have to because I promised my bff that when she’s 45, has kids and is going through a divorce and all, I’ll find a job for her, that doesn’t require being organized or hardly any skills.

041. Have really nice pictures of me in Playboy
I really don’t think that there is anything bad about it and you can definitely show what your mama gave ya.

042. Own every single Disney DVD
Working on it.

043. Being able to eat anything without getting fat
Said every woman in this world.

044. Spend a night with a hot guy at IKEA
Well, you know…play house and all.

045. Lot’s of Victoria’s Secret stores in Germany
Yeah, same as with the Disney Stores. Apparently, there are two or three at airports but I can’t book a flight just to go shopping at VS. Just please Germany, go with the flow and bring on the good stores.

046. Meet Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Because he’s such a hero, a huge inspiration and I would just love to have a good talk with him. I can only imagine all the great conversations one could have with this man.

047. Becoming editor in chief somewhere
Someday, I will run my own magazine and I’m planning on being fair and reasonable. Although, my mom does say that she wouldn’t want me as a boss. I don’t think, I’d be a monster, though. One day, I’ll get offered a position like that and it will be glorious.

048. Dance under the Eiffel Tower
Technically, I don’t need a man for that but it wouldn’t be the worst thing.

049. Go skydiving
I really want to and I’m sure this wish will come true, someday.

050. Meet one guy who is not like all the others
A girl can dream, right?

My 101 Wishes – 1-25

What if you could wish for anything in the world, no matter how crazy it seems or how selfish it is? I feel like all of mankind would go crazy but it would still be pretty cool. I have so many that I thought, I’d put together 101 things that I would love to have or see happening. Some of them could be fulfilled someday, but some are just ridiculous. So here is part 1 and don’t laugh at me.

make a wish

001. A Disney Store in Germany
I just don’t understand why we don’t have one. Apparently, there used to be some years ago, but why the hell did they have to go? Whenever I travel to a city that has one, I go crazy. While living in San Francisco, I could just go downtown and spend my money on plush Disney animals and I miss that. At least Germany has an online store but I want to step into a building and feel the magic.

002. Spend a day at the supermarket, just eating whatever I want
I would just try anything they have and probably roll back out of the market. A small kitchen to use during my stay would be great, as well. Just imagine all the things you could stuff your face with – heaven!

003. Be the pink Power Ranger
When I was a kid, the yellow ranger was always my favorite but today, I would definitely be the pink Ranger. Yellow is just not my color.

004. Have wings
Because flying everywhere just sounds amazing. I’ve always loved being in the air, I’m excited to go on planes and the whole concept of flying just fascinates me. I don’t even have to be a fairy, I just want the wings.

005. Perfectly copy the “Dirty Dancing” dance
I guess, first I need a man who can dance. In my head, I know most of the dance, since it has always been my favorite movie and I can’t even count all the times I’ve watched it, but that final dance would just be amazing. Any male volunteers?

006. Own a huge walk-in closet
This is just the dream. Everything on hangers and perfectly in order sounds amazing. I had one when I was in the States for a year and even though it wasn’t huge, it still was great. I also put lots of personal bits and pieces in there and really miss it.

007. Travel to the moon
I don’t even know why, it just sounds amazing. I also really want to see earth from up there.

008. Live in an American teen movie
Back in highschool, my best friend used to say that I live in an American teen movie because I looked and acted exactly like I just jumped out of one. Unfortunately, life was always so different from what I saw, so I wouldn’t mind living in one for a bit.

009. Make myself invisible
I would be the biggest stalker in the world and it would be absolutely amazing. I’m such a creep.

010. Have a maid, a cook and a butler
Let’s face it, I’m super lazy and this would definitely be the dream. I hate chores and I never really know what food to make myself, so I want everything done for me.

011. Being photographed by David LaChapelle
I think he’s such a great artist and I love his work. The photos are insanely crazy and I really like provocative people who have something to say. I would love to be turned into a piece of art by him.

012. Give a concert in the middle of Times Square
I would say that I’m a pretty good singer and I can definitely entertain. And I don’t know, a concert at Times Square would just be incredible.

013. A candy factory in the basement
I mean, who doesn’t?

014. Travel the whole world
This is just the ultimate dream cause there is just so much to see. If I ever get rich enough to do it, I would totally go for it. But I’m still kinda young so who knows what will happen.

015. Hang out with the Kardashians
I just really want to get to know them in person, especially Khloe. She’s the best and they’re so much fun on TV.

016. Have a chimpanzee as a pet
Yeah, yeah, I know that monkey’s are not supposed to be kept as pets and I wouldn’t do it but if it was actually ok, I’d love it. There used to be a German TV show with a chimpanzee named Charly living with a family and I wanted one, ever since.

017. Knowing what happens after I die
I just really want to know if there are such things as heaven and hell and if I can actually meet dead people or be reunited with people I’ve lost. It would just be so great to know.

018. Write a bestseller
Still on the list, still doable. I just have to stop being lazy and have to come up with the one brilliant idea. Someday…

019. Fly around with Bibi Blocksberg on her broom
For those of you who don’t know her, she’s a little witch. I always listened to her tapes as a kid and I still fall asleep so much better when I listen to her stories. I wanna have a fun witch-friend.

020. Have a paparazzi shot of me in a magazine
Obviously a flattering one.

021. Being able to read minds
Especially those of guys because I really don’t get them. They don’t make sense and I’m very much over playing stupid mind games so this skill would really help.

022. Own every Disney Princess dress
I have a Belle costume but not the original long dress and I do have a mermaid costume and one Jasmine-type but they’re both not close to the Princesses when it comes to colors etc.

023. Record an episode of MTV Cribs
That show was one of my absolute favorites and some pictures will forever stay in my mind. As a matter of fact, Hailey Jade Ryan, which is not my real name, derived from the idea of having to sound cool for when I say “Hey, I’m Hailey Jade Ryan, welcome to my crib.”

024. Have a treehouse
I always wanted one but I never got one. Mom, dad, why??? I mean, I’m not exactly the outdoorsy type of girl but in my mind, it’s lovely. There was a TV show years ago, where a girl sits on her platform or something and reads or writes. I can’t exactly remember but that’s where this comes from.

025. Get married at Sanssouci castle
Marriage is certainly not on the top of my list, but if I ever change my mind, that’s the only place I want to get married at. The garden of Sanssouci castle in Potdam, near Berlin. I’ve known since I was 16 and if I ever get to the point, I better be rich to be able to afford it.

“It can’t be that hard to find a guy!”

singlegirlproblems

“It can’t be that hard to find a guy!” – I’m sure that every longtime single has heard this at some point. It’s often followed by something like “Maybe you’re standards are just too high. There is no such thing as the perfect guy.” Man, this makes me roll my eyes really hard. Why? Because it usually comes from people who have been in relationships forever, family members who just don’t have a clue or people who simply can’t be alone and just jump from one person to another, obviously not holding any standards. People just don’t get it and simply assume that you are the problem. But you know what? I’m not having any of it because there is nothing wrong with me or the way I make decisions for my life. And I’m not letting anyone make me feel bad for not just taking any random guy.

I’m turning 30 in February and it got me thinking that it’s kinda sad that I’ve never really had a happy relationship before. I mean, I dealt with such idiots that in my early 20s, I just decided that I was over it and didn’t need a guy to make me happy. And I was right. I know how to make myself happy, I do the things I want to do and plan my life however I want to and that’s great. Gladly, I was never big on getting married and having kids but the more I think about it, it doesn’t actually sound absolutely terrible to at least meet someone. The feeling of being in love is just one of the best and it probably couldn’t hurt to feel that again. Although I’m scared as hell of the downfall, since I always expect the worse, but I could probably deal with it, since my life isn’t totally out of control right now. But where the hell do I start?The thing is, people are always big on telling me that it can’t be that hard and I just have to put myself out there, but when I actually ask them what to do, nobody really has an answer. I mean, most of my friends have been in relationships for a million years so yeah, what do they know about dating?! What options do I have? Online dating, going out all the time and meeting people, someone’s friends and that’s about it. But here are my problems with all of these options.

If any of my friends knew someone, I would’ve most definitely met them in the last few years. And I’d totally kick their butts if they knew someone and didn’t tell me. I don’t think that online dating is a bad thing, I just don’t really see myself doing it and I can’t even explain why. I think, I’m afraid that guys my age, who do serious online dating, are really looking for the one. In my head, they all want to get married and have kids in the next few years and I really don’t see that happening. I mean, I do have Tinder. I’m not sure why but I think it’s hilarious to just swipe, swipe and swipe. I’m not really a one night stand kind of girl and in general, I just never know what I want. But I’m sure that would go away if I met someone great.

So occasionally, I swipe right and match but that never got me anywhere. It’s either stupid fuckboys, I don’t hear from them (yes, I text first too!) or something else happens like I meet a really nice guy and we can’t get together because he has to go back to the States, over 5000 miles away, and won’t be back home until like eight months later. Yup, that’s my kind of luck. And then it’s just so hard to really stick with someone you don’t know and who starts to bore you after two weeks of texting cause he doesn’t really have anything interesting to say or ask. Sure, he may be a nice guy in person but some things just become clear very quickly, even over text. I mean, I could never be with someone who has no sense for irony or sarcasm. We wouldn’t get along for even a minute. And I kind of promised myself never to date someone again who just never reads a book. He’ll be back in October though and still has my number, so whatever. Surprise me!The whole going out thing is a bit difficult. It doesn’t happen often and when it does, I feel like I know half the room. That’s just a part of smalltown-living and I’m talking real small. The last time I went out with my friends, I had a blast, was really drunk and wanted to find out if I still got game. I do. I picked a guy that in my drunken state of mind was cute and definitely got his attention. Long story short, are all guys at parties still just slobs? I mean, we’re not 20 anymore and I’m not just a piece of meat. At least buy me drink first. So yeah, I still got game but picking up guys at a party just isn’t for me, anymore. And the worst thing about it? He lives like two streets away. That’s how small this smalltown-life actually is. And I don’t see the point in going out in larger cities because I don’t have the time or motivation to date someone who lives like two hours or more away. And what’s the point anyway? I can’t even remember the last time I had a decent conversation with a guy. I’m starting to think that great guys don’t exist anymore, at least not for me.

And let me just tell you about that final nail in the coffin to make you see how hard it actually is to meet someone, even when you’re open to it. There was this guy I saw on Tinder months ago that I really liked for various reasons but we never matched. A few weeks ago, the same guy actually pokes me on Facebook. Just out of nowhere and I don’t have any idea why. Usually, this whole poking thing is something I really don’t like at all but after some thinking, I was willing to make an exception. I poked back and felt ridiculous for doing it but what made it even worse was him poking me AGAIN. Who the hell does that? By the way, we’re talking about a 32-year-old grown-ass man. So for a minute, I was over it because if you go around Facebook poking random girls, I expect some balls to go with that. But on paper, he looked so great that I was willing to look passed it. But before running chances of making a fool of myself, I asked a friend who knows him, what kind of a guy he is. She gave me the all clear and I messaged him. Yeah well, I’m now kicking my butt for it. This was the conversation:

Hi :)
Hi :)
You poked me, do we know each other from somewhere? :)
No, not really. ;)
Ok, and who are you? :)

After this, NOTHING!!! So I make an even bigger fool of myself and try AGAIN. That makes three chances. That’s how much I liked him on paper.

Did I scare you away? *monkey closing his eyes*
No, why? *monkey closing his eyes*
Cause I never heard back?!

And that was it, never heard a peep again. I mean, what the hell is his problem? And then I have to listen to people telling me that it can’t be that hard? That’s just not right because it’s not me. I know, not every guy can handle a strong and confident women, but then don’t even try in the first place. I mean, my friend described him as this really great guy who may be a little on the shy side but I’m sorry, grow some damn balls and don’t act like a total idiot. I have better things to do than waste my time. I better not run into him somewhere, cause I will tell him just that. The worst part is that I’m still upset over it cause for a split second, it all seemed too good to be true. But there you see how difficult it actually is to find someone I could be happy with, at least for a little bit. So don’t tell me it’s easy and that I’m this big problem because I’m not. But who knows, maybe I’ll find Mr. Right at the super market, cause that’s what they teach us in movies, right?!
