If You Aren’t Going To Make An Effort, Then Don’t Plan On Ever Dating Me




I used to think that men matured with age. I used to think that men got more skillful with age, like you know, with talking and stuff like that. Boy, was I wrong. It seems to me that their peak was in high school. 

Of course, not every guy out there is terrible. I bet there are plenty of mature and kind men out there that I have yet to meet. But, as of now, I don’t see anyone.

And as of now, I haven’t met anyone who is worth my time.

Here’s the thing. I’m not going to waste my time anymore. Time is precious. Time is limited. And time won’t wait for anybody. I’m not looking for a guy with the nicest smile, or with the cutest pick up line. I’m not looking for a guy with the nicest washboard abs, or with the biggest biceps.

I am looking for a quality guy. And honestly, I think that’s something we all need to do. That’s somebody we all need to wait for. I don’t care anymore about having arm candy. I don’t care anymore about how everything ‘looks’ on the outside.

I am looking for a man to make a god damn effort.

I don’t want a cheesy pick up line. I don’t want to be booty called. I don’t want the games. I am so, so tired of all the games.

I want a man to actually try. You think it would be easy to find, but alas I have not had much luck recently. I want a man with integrity. I want someone who respects my needs and my wishes. I want to date someone who actually treats me like I’m a human being.

I am not an object. I am not a toy. I am a person.

And I deserve to feel wanted and needed by a man who sees me as a human. It seems ridiculous to have to write this. It seems pathetic, to say the least. You would think a strong woman could get a guy with the snap of their fingers. You would thing an independent woman wouldn’t have to say these things.

But guess what? We can get the guy. Us strong women can get any guy we want. But I don’t want quantity. I want quality. I want a guy who smiles at me with kindness, and looks at me with admiration. I don’t want him to look at me with hungry eyes and with a sinister smile. I don’t want lust. I want true love.

And lately I have been wondering to myself, is that too much to ask? TC mark

Question: What’s the best language to learn in terms of literature?

Learning a second language has always been something I’ve wanted to do (but never did because high school French lessons were boring as f***).
For the most part anything I’ve read has been restricted to works originally written in English (unless its been translated). I love literature, so I’d really like to learn a second language so that I can read classics without the risk of anything being lost in translation and so that I can open myself up to another collection of novels, plays, poetry.
So my question is what language has the better collection of written works, both classical and modern?

Ariana Grande Completely Went Off On Ryan Seacrest During a Radio Interview

Ariana Grande DNC Email Leak


Ariana Grande does not put up with any s**t. She certainly didn’t back down this past Thursday during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest.

Things got a pretty cringeworthy when Seacrest implied that the 23-year-old’s recent Instagram photo, which features her and Mac Miller with the caption “baabyyy,” was a confirmation of the pair’s relationship. Grande immediately fired back:

“Oh, is that what I did? Is that what Instagram means to you now? All right world, let’s go. What was that segue?”


Burn. Seacrest responded, “I don’t know. That’s why I’m asking.” To which Grande quipped back, “What are you asking? You said a sentence, there was no question. … I don’t know, man.” Seacrest replied, “Well, come on, man.” Even reading this is so awkward.

The singer refused to reveal any details about her rumored relationship with Miller and seemed pretty agitated about the line of questioning. “It’s like, ‘Good morning, On Air With Ryan Seacrest.’ It’s too early for this kind of tea. It’s too early, man,” she complained. But Seacrest wasn’t about to let it go so easily, being that his job is to get information out of the people that come on his show. “That’s what we do. If you post something — even in my life — if I post something, it becomes something,” Seacrest reminded Grande. But she wasn’t having any of it:

“If I post something, then that’s what I’m willing to share at the moment. That doesn’t mean that you, Ryan Seacrest, with millions of listeners, are entitled to more information.”

Fair enough, Ari. Check out the awkward video below.

Lauren and Vito, who were engaged for nearly two years before getting married in July 2015, have been trying to get pregnant for a while and revealed that it happened only once they “stopped placing so much pressure” on themselves.

The third season of Manzo’d with Children premiered this week, and according to promos for the show, it will touch on Lauren and Vito’s struggle to get pregnant.

The couple don’t yet know the s of the baby, but they do plan to find out before the birth, with Lauren hoping for a girl, while Vito is “team boy.”

The Bravo family recently welcomed another arrival when Jacqueline Larita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes gave birth to a baby boy named Cameron Hendrix Malleo in August.

Back in 2013, Caroline Manzo said her decision to hang up her Real Housewives hat after five seasons was because her outlook on the show had changed from something she couldn’t wait to show her future grandchildren to something she hoped her future grandchildren would “never see.”

Hopefully the Manzo matriarch is happy for her future grandkids to see Manzo’d with Children. Or should that be Manzo’d with Grandchildren?

Congratulations to the Manzo family on their happy news.

Question: Who agrees with Classical and Operant conditioning and who disagrees?

Hey guys. I have an assignment on conditioning and could use some more examples to look into. I need to find sociologists/psychologists who support or disagree with classical and operant conditioning. I’ve found a few myself but would like to strengthen my arguments.

I’m not looking for any answers here – just people I can look into 🙂
