If A Guy Can’t Handle My Bluntness, He Can’t Handle Me

I’ve never exactly been the type to hide my feelings, and admittedly, I’ve always been pretty proud of just how honest I am. Unfortunately, I’ve met my fair share of guys who don’t like my blunt personality. Here’s why I’m all out of care to give over men who can’t handle women like me:

  1. I’m not the submissive type. A guy has literally told me that I need to be more of the “shut the hel up type”, and my reaction was simple: “Screw that.” I’m not going to be quiet, obey a man’s orders, or dull my sparkle when I know I’m valuable and relevant. I’ve shattered my own glass ceilings, and I plan to shatter many more.
  2. I’m only blunt when I’m provoked. I’m sick of some guys assuming that my strong personality equates to me being a complete bitch — it’s far from the truth. I’m actually a caring, down-to-earth, and fun person to be around. If you get on my crap list, however, I’m not afraid to stand my ground.
  3. I want to inspire others. There are far too many women out there who allow men to walk all over them, and I’ll be damned if I’m one of them. I like to think that my strong will inspires other women, whether friends or strangers, to not accept mistreatment in their own lives. We all deserve better than the way society often treats us.
  4. I’m not here to please men. Even though we’re not in the 1950’s anymore, lots of men still think it’s a woman’s job to make their lives as pleasant as possible. Sorry, fellas, but the only life I’m trying to improve is my own. If I have to raise a little hell to get that point across, then so be it.
  5. Real men aren’t intimidated. I can’t help but laugh when guys have told me that “no man could ever love a women like me.” If that’s really the case, then why do so many other men want me just the way I am? The answer is simple: Men love strong women, and weak little boys are intimidated by them. I know now that the insults that some guys like to throw at me are just their way of deflecting the fact that they’ll never be able to land a woman with my kind of confidence.
  6. I refuse to let anyone treat me like garbage. Sure, I could tone down my personality and to be with a guy who can’t handle me the way I am now, but that’s just not me. I am who I am, and I’m not changing for anyone. I wasn’t raised to be a doormat, and I’m not going to start now.
  7. I’m not afraid to point out the elephant in the room. If a guy treats me in a way I don’t deserve, I’m not going to sit idle and quiet. I’m not afraid to say what’s on my mind, and I won’t shy away from calling a guy out for being a bonehead. If he doesn’t like it, he won’t last long with me.
  8. I don’t want to end up with a jerk. I’ve made the mistake of getting involved with douchebags more than a few times in my past, and I won’t repeat the same mistakes all over again. If some guys think I’m a bitch because I say what’s on my mind and stand up for myself, that’s completely fine by me. I’m not going to tone myself down and risk ending up with someone who thinks it’s okay to walk all over me.
  9. I’d rather be disliked for who I am than loved for who I’m not. I couldn’t pretend to be someone different if I tried, but then again, why would I want to? Even if I ended up single forever, I could live with it knowing that I didn’t compromise on who I am just to please a guy.
  10. I’m proud of who I am. I’ll never apologize for telling it like it is, and I don’t care at all that some guys are offended. I’m blunt, I’m unafraid to speak up, and I’m strong AF because of my experiences. I’m happy with the person I’ve become, and if a man doesn’t feel the same way, he’s free to find someone else.
