GIRLS vs. GROWN WOMEN
Thanks to Daisy Cabrera for the forward.
GIRLS leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
GROWN WOMEN make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits in.
GIRLS want to control the man in their life.
GROWN WOMEN know that if he’s truly hers, he doesn’t need controlling.
GIRLS check you for not calling them.
GROWN WOMEN are too busy to realize you hadn’t.
GIRLS try to put a man ‘on lock’ by using sex.
GROWN WOMEN know that it’s the sex of the mental kind that makes a man want to ‘lock’ you down.
GIRLS fake-moan, lie there and take the stabbing.
GROWN WOMEN say, "Just stop", get up, get dressed and walk out.
GIRLS are afraid to be alone.
GROWN WOMEN revel in it– using it as a time for personal growth.
GIRLS ignore the good guys.
GROWN WOMEN ignore the bad guys.
GIRLS worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
GROWN WOMEN know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.
GIRLS try to monopolize all their man’s time (i.e., don’t want him hanging with his friends).
GROWN WOMEN realize that a lil’ bit of space makes the ‘together time’ even more special — and goes to kick it with her own friends!
GIRLS want to be spoiled and ‘tell’ their man so.
GROWN WOMEN ‘show’ him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate w/o fear of losing his ‘manhood’.
GIRLS get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
GROWN WOMEN know that that was just one man.
GIRLS fall in love, chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all ‘signs’.
GROWN WOMEN know that sometimes the one you love doesn’t always love you back-and moves o n, without bitterness.
GIRLS use a man to define them.
GROWN WOMEN know their own worth and show him.
GIRLS will read this and get an attitude knowing exactly who they are.
GROWN WOMEN will read this and smile knowing exactly who they are.
