Are You a Grumpy Girl?

5 years ago

I'm sure most of us have seen pictures and witty sayings featuring The Grumpy Cat™

I saw this particular Grumpy Cat photo last week:


Even though I thought it was hilarious, it gave me pause.

How many women are Grumpy Girls????

I'm happy to say that I'm never at a loss for male attention, regardless of the race or ethnicity of the man. I don't say that to brag; it's simply the truth. By nature I'm friendly, outgoing, curious, and I see the humor in most things (probably too many things, but that's another post).

I smile and say hello to people I don't know. And when someone smiles at me, I smile back - and this often leads to a conversation.

I dare say many more women would be in relationships - or even dating - if they weren't Grumpy Girls. I'll go even farther and say that many of them would probably be in interracial relationships if they were not Grumpy Girls. 

Too many women have closed minds when it comes to dating and relationships - a guy has to be a certain complexion or ethnicity to grab her attention. Or, he has to be a certain height, or weight. And if he doesn't meet the visual standard, he gets this:


Why so grumpy? What's wrong with smiling and being friendly? What's wrong with a simple, "How's your day going?" or "Are you enjoying the weather?" And what's wrong with a nice "Thank you!" when you're complimented?

I would venture to say that a woman's date-less-ness is in direct proportion to her level of grum-pi-ness.

Smile, and the world will smile with you - and you might even get asked for a date.
