We’ve all seen the film. Girl Meets boy. Girl falls for boy. Boy won’t commit. Girl dresses like a slut; boy commits. You’re just an object.
The Little Mermaid
It’s OK to sell your soul in order to get what you want. In The Little Mermaid, Ariel gives up her voice; her ability to sing and her ability to communicate, AND STILL GETS THE GUY, because ya’know, it’s not like you need to be able to have a conversation with a guy in order for him to like you.
Friends With Benefits
If you have no strings attached sex with a guy and act like you don’t want a relationship, he will fall in love with you. Chances are, if he says he wants no strings attached, he really wants no strings attached and won’t fall in love with you. Make sure that’s what you really want too before you pursue it.
Someday your prince will come. It’s Ok that you can’t pay your rent, your shoes are falling apart and all your friends are hooked on drugs. One day a man will come along and lift you out of all of your troubles.
