I've noticed that I don't always act like the women around me.
It's okay though. I like that we're all different.
I actually have friends who do almost ALL the things I've listed. And again, it's okay.
Here are reasons I'm a different kind of chick (peep!):
--Shoes are just things that I wear on my feet. Some women get excited about them. I hate wearing heels. How am I supposed to have a good time if my feet are killing me? I mainly live in sneakers. Or flip flops. If I have to wear heels for a special occasion, I do so with a pinched, uncomfortable expression on my face.
--I don't have an urge to do crossfit. Or run. Or Zumba. Or Yoga. Or Kale.
--I'm not touchy feely. Growing up I'd notice other girls playing with each other's hair. I didn't want anyone messing with my hair. I didn't need to hug when I said goodbye. If a friend was upset, I'd get uncomfortable and try to crack a joke. I remember thinking, "I hope she's not expecting a hug because I don't wanna.."
--I don't use cutesy names. I notice on Facebook, women will go, "Hey girlie!" or "Hey lady!" I just say "Hey." Or use their names.
--Name brands do nothing for me. A lot of women like Michael Kors and will gush over their new purse. I want to say, "You paid $200 for a bunch of MKs all over the dang place?" Most of my purses come from Kohls or Target. From the clearance bin.
--Fifty Shades of Gray grossed me out. Women were fawning over Christian and all I could think was, "He had period sex with Anastasia. He removed her tampon. He's controlling and yuck."
--I wear basic sweatpants. I notice a lot of women around me want to rush to Victoria's Secret to buy overpriced sweats with PINK down the side. Why would I pay double (or triple) the price for sweats with writing on it?
--I don't feel the urge to post multiple photos of myself sitting in my car. Or I don't care to share to the world my legs and toes as I sit near the pool or beach. I'll just post a picture of the pool or the beach. My lower half does not need to be included.
How are you a different kind of chick?
