Why don't boys like me?

Me, Alyssa and Erin have this thing we used to do- whenever we do anything silly, stupid or seemingly unattractive, we would follow it up with the question "why don't boys like me?". Often times we would laugh- that was until they both got married and I remained single- kinda not so funny anymore (although I will still pull the joke out for a laugh when I can). Another one we do, is say "Why am I getting fat?"- as we shove spoonfuls of Ben and Jerry's phish food into our mouths or something as equally delicious and fattening. But I digress.

I was talking to my mother last week and she said something like "honey, I don't know why boys don't like you- you are smart and beautiful . . . but I do think you should change your hairstyle." This was not the time nor the place for such a comment and I proceeded to tell her so and then swiftly got off the phone. She kinda apologized later, but still stood by the statement that she does not like my choice of hairstyle. Yesterday I spent $90.00 on a deep condition and a hair cut. I kept my long brown locks in layers and didn't change much of anything (hey, I like it, even if my mom or 'the boys' don't). My mom called shortly after I got it cut and said "now Angie, don't get mad, but I was watching the view today and Anne Hathaway was on, well, I Teboed (Tivo) it for you- I really like her hair." I then proceeded to tell her she was too late and I had already spent an obscene amount of money getting my hair cut and it looked exactly the same way it had before only trimmed.

I am so glad that my mother thinks I am so great that the only possible solution to this single problem (I don't really see it as that much of a problem) is getting a new hairstyle.

Sorry Mom, it looks like I will be going at least another 3 months unmarried.

Well Ang, you can tell Sonja that I have short hair and still..... nothing. I like your long brown hair. It suits you. And the boys dont seem to mind it either. Especially recently.

The title of this post was not meant to sound pathetic. I just thought the whole thing was funny- but thank you Mike, I do appreciate your two cents.

Um is your mom single? She sounds sassy and I like them sassy.

I love it when my Mom Tiboe's stuff too. Your lucky, the other day she told me I was single because I'm an Ass.

I just found your blog through various clicky-clickies.

I certainly can relate. A whole lot.

Although at least she's not blaming it on the color, right? Because if you were a blonde, all life's problems would disappear.




p.s. I think your hair = hawt.

Maybe cutting you hair is the solution. They say you trace amounts of toxins can be found in your hair. So in a way it is a cleansing experience!

My dad just volunteered out of nowhere that I should go blonde again... Then my husband agreed...

Three months I've been listening to this crap - "Go back to blonde!"

So, whether your single or not, your family will always have some crap to say about things that relate to absolutely nothing....

Question is... Should I listen?

she not only blames it on my hair but on my smile, my glasses, my clothes, me being too picky because i don't settle for an inactive boys, my independence.... blame blame blame....
