Q:Hi Froggie! Do you believe in the friendzone?
I believe in something I call “unrequited like.” It’s a less profound version of unrequited love. I think this happens to all genders and it can certainly be disappointing.
I’ve been on the planet a bit longer than a lot of my followers and maybe I can pass along a few things I’ve learned.
First, if someone has no interest in you. Move on. It will be hard. It might even suck for a while. But trying to win the affection of someone who doesn’t feel that way about you is a big waste of time. You are just going to cause yourself more pain.
Second, being someone’s friend is not a consolation prize. Friendship is one of the most precious things on earth and should not be discounted into this absurd notion of the “friendzone.”
If you believe in the friendzone you aren’t the “nice guy” you think you are. Women are not objects to be won, and if they reject you, you should respect that. You cannot blame someone for not having feelings for you. It’s like telling someone who doesn’t like brussels sprouts to just start liking them. You cannot magically change their taste buds by saying the right words.
And lastly, if they offer you friendship, do not accept it if you are just going to be resentful. Either truly be their friend and perform your friend duties with all your heart, or move along.
In my opinion, if you think you got friendzone’d, you are no friend.
This girl at work was talking about “hilarious” things her husband has done and I was just within earshot. She described how he “dressed like he was gay” (bcurnhcrnuwihsgoqolkjdbg) with a friend and walked around a store with their hands in each other’s back pockets. I’m glad to see that they think it’s a costume and something to make fun of.
Hey so I’m thinking about going out dressed like a shithead. Maybe she’ll let me borrow an outfit.
When I found out that Lupita won People magazines cover title, I was excited and I was even more excited to read the supportive comments. But I was let down. Every fucking thing that’s wrong with America’s beauty standards is proved correctly in the…
Please Understand: Iwata cuts his salary after dismal profits
According to AFP, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata will be receiving half of his usual salary for the next five months in a small act of atonement for the terrible year Nintendo had, most in part due to the Wii U.
Nintendo’s revenues dipped 8.1% in the last couple months. [❤]
Gee, when’s the last time the president of a Western corporation slashed his own salary as an apology for their company’s performance?
… Ohyeah. They don’t. They just skullfuck the lower echelons of their power structure, slash and burn the rank and file, and give themselves a six-figure bonus for being so smart and valuable to the company.
Which is why guys like this dude earn my respect regardless of what blunders they make with their company direction. Nintendo suffers, and he chose to suffer with it as a show of good faith.
