the "C" word

This was not written by me but one of my friends posted it on facebbook.
I found it quite interesting and agreeable. Enjoy [LUV] Anastasia.

Another lesson in romantics for all you guys.

If there’s one thing all boys, guys, and men should know, it’s that women do not enjoy being called the C-Word … and I’m not talking about cunt.

Cute: Possessing physical features, behaviors, personality traits or other properties that are mainly attributed to infants and small or cuddly animals.

Cute is for children under the age of 12. Cute is for little girls with pigtails riding pink bikes with streamers. Cute is for rainbows, bunnies, and fluff.

Men tend to use this word because it is “safe”. It’s not too forward, but yet makes a point. The point is: “cute” is a horrible safe word. Good-looking is safe and definitely tops cute. “Pretty” is also a much better alternative. Sure, it may be a little cliché but at least it doesn’t associate the woman with small or cuddly animals.

Pretty: Pleasing by delicacy or grace; Having conventionally accepted elements of beauty.

Pretty is much more sophisticated than cute. Pretty is for golden sunsets by the beach and paintings of countryside landscapes. Pretty is not for fluff.

Here’s the catch: girls may call guys and other girls cute. Girls say things like “cute outfit” and “you look cute today” to other girls all the time. When a guy says it however, it’s comes out in a completely different context. When a girl refers to another guy as cute, it’s a good thing! When a guy refers to a girl as cute…not a good thing.

So, fellas, next time you think about using the C-word, think again! If you’re looking for a safe word, try pretty instead. Or better yet, take a walk on the edge and be unique; try lovely, charming, mesmeric, alluring, elegant, stunning, tempting, tantalizing, angelic, darling, dazzling, enticing … get the picture?

Oh Me Oh My

Life, its been quite the journey. As much as I've wanted to get back at this again, I have also been avoiding it. There has just been so much that has happened from my time in North Carolina until now. This is somewhat of a recap I suppose. I left NC with a lot of unwanted baggage. I say this in the most metaphorical way possible.
As most of you all know. I was married to a marine and we lived out in Camp Lejeune. It was a pretty awesome stay as far as the friends and opportunities I had.  Unfortunately it was short lived due to my ex-husband not being a very nice person and to some of the PTSD he suffered from that went untreated. Basically the relationship was toxic and abusive. So much so that I lost a lot of who I was in always being on the defensive and sticking up for myself. I'm not saying that is was all his fault. Just as in any relationship, both parties are responsible for nurturing or poisoning. So here I am almost 5 years later living my life and loving it.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
