Three Words

FotD: Falling in love has neurological effects similar to cocaine.

So, I’m really traditional in a lot of ways. For instance love. I love everything. I do not love everyone. I don’t not believe in saying the words love to anyone who I just like or, for instance, a boyfriend of not even ONE HOUR!

Saying I love you, to me, is something that shouldn’t be said until you’re fully sure you’re ready to commit a relationship with that person. Saying I love you to family, children, or even close friends is fine to me. Trust me, I have friends that I absolutely love and adore, just as I have family that I love and adore. Their relationships in my life is cemented. I know it and they know it.

Buuuuut, first thing you need to know about me is that I’m not overly affectionate…or affectionate at all. I don’t do love, affection, or clingy. I may be optimistic but I know how love is. And affection. And the clingyness of a boyfriend. I do not like that. Sure, if we’ve been dating for a while I don’t care if we’re affectionate and snuggling and lovey. But I have to actually love him.

However, if we’ve only been dating for say one hour(even if I’ve know him for a while longer than that) I DO NOT want him to ask 20 different variations of where I am or “hello can I call you”. Sorry, but if you’re going to act like that to me if we’ve only been dating for a little while then I’m going to cut you off cold turkey. No more me for you. Another thing that just irks me is when I say goodbye and you tell me three times that you love me. HELL NO!

We were only dating for a little bit, despite me knowing him for a couple months, when he said the big three words. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. Love is important. Only say it when you mean it and when you’re ready to commit to something, that’s my opinion at least. Love is cement and it should not be treated like sand. So easily picked up and brushed off. If I love someone I might tell them once every year(like I said I’m not a very affectionate person). If I don’t, you can guarantee we’re breaking up and I’m probably going to be so disgusted with you that I’m not going to talk to you. I may be overreacting, but love is extremely important to me. It’s not something I can take lightly. It’s all or nothing for me.

So, to the boy who just ruined any chance he had with me in the future, I hope you’re happy. You pushed and pushed and pushed, and when I finally gave in you blew it. You knew me well enough to know I don’t roll like that, except you thought you were the exception. Guess what, you’re not. And we’re done. End of story…

My rant is done. And now I feel slightly less flustered.


Just a Thought

So, as you’ll find out, I’m going to start off every post with my Fact of the Day (FotD). Here it is!

FotD: Coyotes “sing” to communicate with other families and so they can keep track of their own family.

This will be about coyotes! Recently, I was inspired by a certain coyote that lingers outside of my room. He howls and growls when he’s close to my house, but when he’s over the river the pitch changes frequency. Thinking about it, it kind of sounds like a tiny baby with a really deep voice singing. Now, I realize that he’s other talking to other coyote families or he’s talking to his own.

Do you know much about coyotes?

Coyotes are also called the American Jackal because they can be found all over North America. They might even be in your backyard like they are in mine. They also walk on their toes! Weird, right? I presume it’s because they’re always trying to sneak up on the next unsuspecting prey rather than some other reason than the fact that they are just digitigrades(which just simply means that they are a species that walks on their toes).

Coyotes use the buddy system just like children are taught to use nowadays. They’re also smart. When attacking prey, one coyote will distract the poor, unsuspecting animal, while the other coyote will attack it from behind. Vicious? Or just crazy smart and trying to survive? I like to believe the latter as I don’t believe anything that is instinctual is vicious. Robots, yes. Coyotes, no.

Coyotes, in fact, do not go looking for trouble they’re just curious about our world. Wouldn’t you be if you spent most of your days in the woods with no internet? I’m pretty sure I’d feel so disconnected from the world that I wouldn’t know what to do with myself! Coyotes are terribly timid and will usually run away when approached. They’re scared of us and our society more than anything. Still, they are animals. Animals rely on their instincts. Do not try to approach a coyote and do not turn your back on it. Simply make loud noises, make yourself look larger than you are, and if you have it, throw water at them. For some reason, I’m finding throwing water at them scares them, but it seems more provoking than terrifying so personally I wouldn’t do that.

So, this is coyotes! Now you know a little about them if you didn’t, and if you did then you might know a little more than me so go ahead and comment if you have anything more to add about coyotes!

I’ll be updating whenever I get another thought, so it probably won’t take more than a week!
