So. I'm sitting at my computer, browsing profiles at random. And I come upon a little poem - you know the ones, the ones about guys and how sad you are because you can't have him and how you love him and what you want him to do for you, et cetera, et cetera.

Well, I nearly threw up upon coming upon this particular poem.

Unfortunatley, the person with said poem in their profile signed off, so I can't copy it to rip it apart and analyze it for the world to see (sadface). I will, however, try and pick apart your basic poem/quote/random thing for you, and I guess we'll just see how this goes.

Okay. Once I came upon this little quote thing. In it, a girl is talking to her friend.

Her: I like him
Friend: Why?
Her: ARE YOU CRAZY?? Have you seen him SMILE??
Friend: well, you should tell him, he likes you too
Her: how do you know?
Him: He found your friend's password

Of course, that is totally inconsiderate of him. I don't want a boyfriend who's going to log into my friend's account WITHOUT HER PERMISSION and pretending to be her in order to get a go at my private thoughts. That's rude, uncalled for, and not to mention illegal.

Anyway, I came upon this little poem thing. It was all sappy and pathetic; you know the type, I'm sure. They're in EVERYONE's profiles.

It said something along the lines of "I want a guy who will change for me."

I bet you I've already had this rant, but that little line makes me so sick I want to puke (melodramatacy rocks).

Okay. Every girl has said at some point, "I want a guy who will like me for who I am," or, "I want my friends to like me for who I am," or, "Like me for who I am, I'm not changing for you," et cetera, et cetera.

And yet we all feel the need to turn around and tell others to change? HOW FREAKING HYPOCRTICAL. Guys, you'd better back me up here, it's not often you get a feminist on your side.

But anyway, I am so mad right now I'm about to literally explode. HOW DARE THEY TELL SOMEONE TO CHANGE. WHY WOULD I WANT SOMEONE TO CHANGE JUST FOR ME? IF I DON'T LIKE WHO THEY ARE, I'LL GO OUT WITH SOMEONE ELSE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Don't change. Stay who you are. The world has enough fake people to last at least a million years.

But I'm stepping out of line here, and my organization skills in this little rant are atrocious. I'm jumping around. So perhaps I'll hook myself up with an outline later; it would help my readers if I didn't jump from topic to topic.

Anyway, I hate it when people say things like, "I want someone who's willing to change for me." Because

a) I don't want people to have to change themselves; it's not right, and
b) someone who is weak and sappy enough to want to change themselves to please another just isn't the right guy for me.

Of course, that last one is personal prefrence. But I am thinking that no one wants someone who's always changing personalites for people.

Wow, I've written a book and still haven't expressed how much I hate that statement or even WHY. I'm usually good with words, but I'm so angry right now that I can't successfully put my anger into words in this little journal.

The bottom line is, if you do not take anything else from this rant, BE WHO YOU ARE. Be PROUD of who you are. Don't change for anyone else. Being who you are is an admirable quality in any guy or girl. I will love you for who you are, and I will love you for having the courage to be who you are. Any time someone tells you to change, just drop them like a hot potato. Or better yet, punch them. Hard. Make the message sink in, and let the world know that you are who you are and no girl (or guy) is ever, ever going to change that.
