I saw this Anonymous message right before I went to sleep last night. After this post, I did have a slight inclination that I would receive an Anonymous message from an Emily enthusiast on my somewhat ‘not too pretty’ portrayal.
Ironically, someone with such strong convictions to this woman, felt her could not just message me with her feedback without utilizing the Anonymous feature. So be it, some people are more comfortable not speaking out their mind for fear of backlash or unpopular opinion. I don’t begrudge this person at all. We’re all meant for different opinions. That’s what makes us interesting, unique, and special.
For those reasons, I do not find Emily attractive. Anonymous is absolutely correct in the fact that “she is not my type.” However Anonymous, as I’m an Analyst I would ask you, what is the baseline you’re defining for “Undeniably Attractive?” It would not shock me at all that our definitions would be significantly different. And you know what? That is absolutely OK if you find her “undeniably attractive.” At that same point, you have to accept that I do not agree.
I am not a “salty” person. You’re the first person to ever doubt my confidence in myself. I am very self-confident, and funny enough, my boss was just speaking to that character description about me last week. I know what I am worth, I know what I am not willing to sacrifice, I know what I’m not settling for, and I know exactly who I am at 34 years old. I know quite a few people who lack self-confidence, and I try to help them with that, because you know what, I’m not a salty person and I find the beauty in things others perhaps would not. I think perhaps that’s an exercise you could work at too - recognizing the beauty in others who are not one veneer away from looking like a plastic Playboy Bunny.
Despite Emily’s physical appearances, I’m way more too shocked about her accepting a proposal from a man that her daughter has been around once. How in the heck is that acceptable? He father also gave his blessing TO TWO MEN. What the? I guess since I’m not a parent, I should not speak to that… right? Because I would hate to be a salty person. Perhaps other single mother’s on Tumblr find this perfectly acceptable, right?
Again, Anonymous, I’m not bitter but sometimes things may be perceived, but this is my blog and I reserve the right to speak my mind, although it may not be aligned with what the masses think. I do not hate you or am pissed at you in any way. Debate is good and I enjoy it. Now I must go take Jack out for his morning potty, as he is a little annoyed at me typing this before I head off to work.
Have a good day and thank for you the message! I do wish Emily and Jef happiness. Truthfully.
