“Lady-like” I can do if needed, but I’m so done with “PC”

Friends, this year I am going all-out, the whole nine yards, lock.stock.barrel. [uncensored].  I am bound to offend lots of people but I really don’t give a damn.  That’s the whole point of a blog, right?  To be able to write as if no one will ever read it but hope that lots of folks do and even better, agree with you?

Ladies and gentlemen, if at any point during the ride you find yourself nauseated, offended or just plain mad at me.. please find your way back to Facebook or Pintrest to better waste your time.

I am [only] 28 years old (well, 27 but only for about 8 more days).  I know that I am still quite young but relatively speaking, I ain’t that young… I’ve voted three (3) times in presidential elections. Much like my other hopes/expectations of men, I can’t say I have been very happy with the outcomes of those..

I have had a variety of relationships including a long one (over 4 years), short (1 night) and the infamous total-waste-of-two-months-of-my-life.  I can still hear myself saying, “Hey, your mother is calling you again, no I won’t be making it to dinner at her house next week, good luck to you, hope you find someone just like her!  Check ya later handsome!”

So, I have had some issues with men… or maybe it’s the men that have issues with me?  I’ll admit, I can be stuck in my ways but I know what I want from a dude. And the pickins are looking pretty slim these days…

I am really pretty easy-going in a relationship. Low maintenance is just kind of my style. You’d think guys would find the laid-back chic more attractive than the whining and needy types. Not the case. It’s pretty amazing what some of my guy friends put up with. It’s even more amazing how many guys I have dated that are more like my girlfriends!

  • Sidebar: What’s up with guys wearing skinny jeans?  Dude, GROSS!  You’re a MAN, dress like a man!

I know some men are intimidated by a chic like me.. One guy I dated for a real short period actually straight out told me that he had reservations about dating me because of my outdoor hobbies… What the hell?  Grow a pair then pick up a rod and reel!

I am a bow hunter.  I love it.  I have happily taken two full weeks off of work the past few years to sit in tree-stands during the prime whitetail deer “rut” in hopes of spotting that “monster” buck. Anyone with a serious passion for whitetail bow hunting will tell you it’s like therapy!  If hunting isn’t your forté, that’s fine, but you’re not going to find me playing your stupid video game on a beautiful saturday afternoon.

What about fishing?  Spring time, a little chilly in the morning but when the sun rises high you can actually feel it tanning your face just slightly.  Walking the bank of a river or a trout stream, you start to work up a sweat.  The feeling of complete liberation when you say to yourself “Screw it, these sneakers were only $50 anyway, I’m going to get to that deep hole on the other side, even if it means I’m riding home in my underwear!”  The feeling of sand and mud building up around your toes is actually really soothing. Maybe that’s why I’m such an even-keeled lady?  Screw the manicures, pedicures and facial treatments, let’s go fishing!

So a woman bow hunter and amateur angler thinks she can still pull off “lady-like?” Absolutely! My parents taught my brothers and I to mind our manners! I might do things a little differently than most girls, but I still enjoy getting dolled up for a first date or a girls’ night out. I can hold my own in a political discussion without blowing my top. Although, typically I do have to fight back the urge to provide the liberal ass clowns with a good, ol-fashioned, American ass-whoopin’. I know it wouldn’t do any good… Liberals, just like wussy men, aren’t going to change because some woman beat the hell out of them. Instead, they’d form some kind of government-funded program to bring awareness to the “right-wing-women-extremists” that are abusing the nations skinny-jeans wearing, sorry-as-hell-excuses for American men.

If you’re not repulsed at this point, please check back soon!
