There are a lot of phrases and terms that seem to come with each new generation. I’m hold enough to remember when “Ooooh BURNNNN” was a big deal and I admit, I said it a lot. Another one I remember was “NOT!” I’m quite sure I’m guilty of overusing that one as well. I’m sure there were many more that I wasn’t even aware of and plenty that struck a nerve. One word that kills me these days is “bae”…you’re not saving syllabils by leaving out the 2nd b, so why? Although, I will admit that when I’m drunk, babe sounds a lot like bae…so maybe they’re just mentally challenged? Nah, they think it’s cute. I get it. I don’t like it, but I get it. My favorite current term is “thirsty,” and never have I seen a word more perfectly applicable in SL. Now, I’m not talking about the way women dress, because come on…it is SL and only here can we walk out of our homes looking and feeling unbelievably sexy AND well dressed, all while showing our undies and barely covering our bits? I’m talking about the way some girls behave. The way they carry themselves and interact with people.
I was talking to someone the other day about how we’ve played SL side by side our RL spouses and seen the way girls will IM them, even with us standing right next to them in SL. Despite the fact that profiles say that he’s taken, that he’s with his true love in RL as well as SL…these thirsty bitches will still IM a man and practically perform oral sex without knowing if he’s even remotely interested. Aside from the complete disregard for other women, which come on…how low must you be to go there? Surely you don’t expect to obtain a loyal lover by luring him away from someone else. Let’s just talk for a minute about how these women will just throw themselves at a man…offering up every little tidbit of themselves all for the sake of…what? Attention? I don’t get it. I’m just not one that wants to go after what isn’t available. Sure, I get it that sometimes friendships lead to things of a less than desirable situation, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. I get it…stuff happens. No one is perfect. However, to knowingly go after a man you know full well is taken on every level? To profess your love to someone who hasn’t offered you anything more than a friendly hello? Girls, please, stop selling yourself so short. If we’d all just act how we want each other to act, just maybe we could all stop looking over our shoulders. A man worth having isn’t going to be swayed by that sort of thing anyway, so what are you really proving to yourself by trying to steal another’s man or even running behind your friends picking up their scraps. Have some water, girl, stop being so damn thirsty. Its really quite sad and you aren’t doing yourself any favors by acting in such a manner. Be kind to one another. Be supportive and encouraging. Be the person you wish others would be…and keep in mind that karma is a real bitch and she fights real dirty. Is that the kind of thing you want coming back to you someday? Trust me, its not. Go forth, be happy, be kind…and above all else? Happy shopping!♥
