They Just Want Some Lovin'

Ah, hello! I've noticed that I've fallen rather behind with the updating. I just never seemed to find the time (or energy) to sit down and write a blog post these past days. I'm getting behind on the commenting, too. But hey, I'm here again, and that's what counts, am I right? Anyway, this post is a semi-story semi-rant sort of thing.

On Tuesday, I was walking home alone a little before 6 PM after sitting through 8 hours and 30 minutes of classes (just two) at the university and struggling to obtain last-minute readings and books, and I looked like utter crap. I had my white uniform on (which you can see if you type in boring white scrubs-like uniform in Google images), my hair was a mess, I was struggling to hold onto all my stuff, my eyes were red and puffy and my face had a couple of sleep lines on it from a few of my passing-out-in-class-as-the-professor-goes-on-about-what-the-flipping-heck-I-don't-even-know episodes.

I looked completely out of it

Anyway, as I walked along, yawning and slouching, some guys hanging out on a street corner suddenly started waving at me and saying things like "Hey, cutie." and "You look pretty today." What the?

I was completely taken aback. Here I was looking like I was sick or like I just woke up (which were both partly true) and these guys still stoop so low as to try and elicit a positive reaction from me. Surprised, all I could do was a "wtf face" (which made me even more undesirable) and a shrug. I just didn't have it in me at the time to roundhouse kick each of them in the jaw. Besides, I already felt sorry for them seeing as how low their standards were. Also, I was rather curious to see if they actually scored any girls using their technique.

Nah, I'm kidding. I felt completely flattered...

...and hella GOR-GE-OUS!

Although seriously(x2), pervy guys, stop this nonsense. This is not the way to make women fall head over heels in love with you (or at least get in bed with you), unless she is completely desperate or out of her mind. This is just sad and frankly, makes you look cheap and lazy. In order to do it right, you're going to have to take valuable time out of your day and set it aside for the woman you decide to pursue. You're going to have to work for her affections and really make an effort to get her attention and eventually gain her trust and affection. Patience is a must, too of course and let's not forget the showering of gifts. You have to try hard to be romantic and gentlemanly and take her places and plan lovely evenings together, be it a night out or a cozy night in. This all calls for a lot of money, naturally and...

Hey, on second thought, that really seems like a lot of work. Suddenly, I understand where you're coming from, formerly-perceived-as-pervy-guy-but-is-now-just-a-guy-who-wants-to-take-a-shortcut-into-a-girl's-pants. Carry on.



  1. LOL! Maybe to YOU you looked horrible. We are our worst critics, you know. XD

  2. Oh, man!
    Always look forward to your fantastic drawings!
    You are totally 'Le artisté' studying art history, amirite?

    I'm totally against complimenting and giving gifts to girls in order to win over their "affection", if you can call it that, but if you looked like you did in the 'hair flip' picture with the spaghetti arms I would totally have purchased you an ice cream cone or something!

  3. did you know that there are some guys who like girls when they don't have make up on and their hair is everywhere. Well at least Jed likes that..haha.. maybe those guys too. lol. You probably oozzziiiinnngggg with sex appeal when you think you look messy. Super Nice drawing.. 1,0000 thumbs up.

  4. Great drawings:P
    Well If I were a guy I'd probably do that as well, because frankly, dating a girl is a lot of work.

  5. LOL.
    I died at the hair flip part. Your illustrations are amazing =D
    And yes, you are here. and that's the only thing that counts =D
    Guys+Planning+Effort+Patience+Romantic = Urban Myth. Waste of time and money.
    Get some rest btw, if your eyes really looked like your little animation thingy, you need a lot of it.

  6. Your drawings are amazing.
    Especially the eyes one. LOL. [:

    But as Jodie said, maybe you didn't look as bad as you thought you did. A lot guys think it's better to look "natural" than being caked with makeup.

  7. Hehe.. If that was me, I'd say "You think this is cute? just you wait 'till I get my hair done." LOL.. hehe..

    So true. Patience is indeed a virtue.. and perseverance, of course. Determination and focus in the goal. It's not just on winning a girl's affection, but also on life.. :)

    Great drawings, Isha..

  8. :O

    Usually it's just random compliments that pop out of nowhere when you need them most. It's not how you look, but rather how others see you. I don't think it's related to standards being low, making someone falling in love with someone or any of that. I'm sure it was only meant as a compliment to make your day more cheerful. Cheers..

    *crawls back into the cave*
    Cheaper to live alone.. =D

  9. Maybe they do that to get you when your at your lowest so they think anyone is good for you ~?
    - ___ - Something like this happened when iCame home from practice looking horrid ~
    ; D But nice compliment, you look gorgeous even when stressed.

  10. LOL i thought i had commented on this post!
    i love your drawings and the GIF made me ROFL, no kidding.
    ugh i hate it when guys do that. or when they just stare with their eyes popping out of their heads and when they grin creepily. *shudders*
    HAIR FLIP! ♥
    and i completely agree with the last paragraph.


do you have anything to say about the sugar-fueled shizz i have hastily posted above? don't hesitate! comment now!

(i just realized how infomercial-y that sounded. but hey, don't let that stop you from commenting!)
