So I keep getting these IMs from women from Ghana. No thanks. Then I get IMs from women from Philly, New York, Chicago and even the New Orleans area . . . and they're from Ghana. What in the WORLD is up with Ghana? No need to answer; it's a rhetorical question.
If I want an answer I'll Google "Ghana women".
My brother once told me that a person who really knows how to kick a$$ doesn't have to announce that he can kick a$$. Basically the man told me that you don't have to talk about it if you really ARE about it.
The words "strong and independent woman" come up quite a bit on BP profiles. I have no problem with a woman proclaiming her confidence or independence but I have to wonder how truly confident or independent she is if she feels the need to announce it.
Fellas, I'm not going to let us off that easily. What's up with the pics of your private parts? OK, it's huge. Congrats. And, no this isn't because I have no confidence in mine (which would be the typical male rebuttal). The point is the same here. If it's so great, you shouldn't have to showcase it. Greatness rises to the occasion on its own merits.
This is not a judgement but an observation. And, of course, it's my opinion as well. But DANG people!
I believe that greatness should speak for itself. To announce yourself usually means that you feel the need to call attention to yourself. Calling attention to yourself may mean that you feel the need to convince others. This begs the question, "Are you trying to convince them or you?"
