Yay I finished Christmas shopping and am almost done wrapping the gifts!
I feel like such an over-achiever xD
So basically I’m taking a class called Marriage and The Family. We basically talk about family dynamics all day. My professor is also divorced and a single mother.
Funny, I know. But she has the ability to offer new perspectives, so I’m all for that.
Today we were talking about why people cheat. When we got to the “why men cheat” question, all the obvious answers were already spoken for (i.e., he wants sex, because he can, etc.). Naturally, I wanted to stir the pot a little bit. I decided to bring up that perhaps men cheat because they lack fulfillment in their own relationship and just don’t feel interested in their partner anymore.
Boy, did she shoot that sucker down. She literally said, “NOPE, WRONG ANSWER.” I was literally stunned into silence for a second.
And that was a little disturbing to me. Not even that she was so blatantly immature in her reaction, but also her lack of reasoning.
Let’s take the idea (that she grabbed hold of and ran with, by the way) that men cheat because they want sex. Why would they want sex? Because they’re not getting it from their significant other. Why would they not get it from their significant other? Because they don’t feel an emotional attachment to her/don’t feel like she is interested in the relationship/aren’t interested in her any longer. There is some discrepancy in the relationship.
She kept looking for symptoms to the disease; I was the only one who gave her a cause.
Whose reasoning is superior now, lady?
My mom told me to “find a man who respects you like a sea captain respects the sea.” A man who looks at you with awe and reverence but knows you are a force of nature. I like that.

Oh. Sobbing. Okay.
Sometimes its incredibly important to hear things like this…
Has it really been 10 years in a world with no Mr. Rogers? Now I am sad.
I teared up. I love Mr. Rogers. <3
This is, in fact, the most important post on the internet.
Every male should be required to read this.
Every person on earth should read this.
This description should be under the dictionary definition of a period. *bravo*
And it didn’t even touch on the ridiculous emotional crap that surely follows.
