This is the place where I just talk about whatever I want and reblog whatever I want. Enjoy! :D
Warning, there will be moments when I will blurb incessantly about Literature and character analysis. Sorry, it's the English Major in me; it's rather difficult to rein in. On the upside, there will also be the occasional pictures of books that I have read or will read.
i can’t believe that tomorrow is the 1st of halloween

Anonymous said: So there was this thing done where a bunch of women wrote down on big paper things said to them in street sexual harassment and catcalling, adn then they tore them up for some reason. a few of them were stuff like "Hey nice tits" a bit more were things like "Hey beautiful" and then there was one that said: *comes up to me when I'm going to work* "Excuse me Miss, do you have a boyfriend?" And I've always been single but I'm pretty sure that's just how you ask someone out...
There are some women who honestly believe that men shouldn’t ask women out, only women should ask men out. They also complain about being single…
-the Polish one
Actually, no, that is not how you ask someone out. You actually talk to the person and get to know them…preferably someone you’re at least acquainted with. Or if you’re already at a place, like work, a bar, or a party. Like, there’s nothing wrong with going up to someone to say hi or ask for a dance. Or to ask a person you like for coffee. You don’t invade their space randomly, and possibly make them uncomfortable; you ease into a conversation, get to know each other, and see how things go. That’s normal. That can get you a legit date, and maybe a start to a nice relationship.
You don’t go up to a person on the street and randomly ask them if they have a significant other. That’s weird. And if you act a certain way, it can come off as creepy. It’s especially creepy if you go up to someone and focus on their physical features rather than the person him/herself (and I’m not talking about calling anyone pretty/handsome, but mentioning how nice their ass is, and any other comment that can make a person uncomfortable), and then expect them to still want to get to know you. You’re welcome to be physically attracted to someone, but don’t mention how hot they are (or any other sexual comments) until they are comfortable with you talking about it. And you make them comfortable by taking the time to actually talk to them and maybe start a light friendship.
I’m getting repetitive, but it all comes down to this: You wanna get with someone? Don’t be a creep. Talk to a person, preferably someone you know. Respect their space and the boundaries they’ve set up. And most important of all, take the time to know them.
Is there a guarantee for a date or a relationship using this method? No, but it’s ten times better than acting like a creep with no social skills.
