The Diary of a Late Bloomer (48)

There is this one article that I would like to share. I remember ever posted it here. The tittle is ‘Date a Girl who Writes’, if I may say, we should marry anyone who writes. Girls or boys. Fiction or nonfiction. When the tongue seems to be sealed and the words left unsaid, pour it into writing is the way to unleash what is held back. Why marry them? For these below reasons.

Date a Girl Who Writes

Date a girl who writes. Date a girl who understands both the simplicity and the depth of the written word. Date a girl who lists one of her heroes as a philosopher or poet. Date a girl who writes because she is a born storyteller.

You’ll learn that the only way she knows what she’s thinking or feeling is through writing. She’ll be articulate and poetic, without the slightest ego.

The girl who writes will have a collection of lists at any given time, not only to-do lists, but life lists; a bucket list, a list of her favorite things, a list of quotes that inspire her.

As a writer she will be a natural listener. So tell her stories. You will begin to recognize what’s important to her or what she wonders about through her writing. She finds writing the only way to explore some of life’s greatest mysteries. So talk to her about your thoughts and ideas. She will revel in them.

With this, she will love to read. She is inspired, enlightened and learned by literature. Read her book suggestions and talk about them with her. She feels satisfied and connected when someone enjoys the same literature as her. Read together.

Date the girl whose voice is so moving that you can hear it in her written words. Spend quality time with her to the point where you almost, but not fully, understand her love for words. She will explain it to you: “I love the twist and tangle of words as they enflame human emotions.” Respect her passion. She will write for a living because she will not know how to make a living sans writing. She believes in passion and when she discovers it within you, she will forever believe in you.

The girl who writes will possess a perspective all her own. As a writer she continually explores her own mind, heart and soul—because of this she is self-aware and introspective. She will have spent time and need more time spent in other worlds—metaphorically and physically. Take her on adventures. Her writing will speak to universal truths…show her the world.

Date a girl who writes because the infinite abilities of her vast mind will astonish you day after day. The way she thinks about the world—as if a short trip to the grocery store has the potential to hold as much meaning as a backpacking trip across Asia—is unparalleled. Learn from her. Realize that the simplest tasks—and words—can, and often do, hold the deepest meaning.

By dating a girl who writes you will discover that there are no goodbyes. She will write about you and she will write to you. Her handwritten letters will captivate you and scare you all in one breath. Be happy that she knows how to tell you what she’s feeling and thinking with precision and grace—that is a luxury in most relationships.

Don’t get frustrated with her when she desires to write about everything that happens between you two—it relaxes her. You may feel like you’re losing her to her writing but you must understand that she writes what she knows, encased in imagination. So be thankful when you identify with a character she has created. You are the chief inspiration in her life—and she will always be drawn back to you. She is independent in her mind yet recognizes the necessity and beauty of experience and relationships.

Date a girl who writes because she understands and appreciates her own worth so fully that she can confidently write about why you should date her.

When you are ready, propose to her in a way that challenges her writing. Give her a moment to write about that can only be shown, rather than told, through words. Let her know how you feel in the best arrangement of words you can conjure up. She will be thrilled by your valiant efforts to connect with her.

For your wedding, the girl who writes will carefully craft her own vows. They will leave you speechless—managing to capsulate your time together thus far into a tightly woven tale of two strangers becoming one.

Marry the girl who writes because she understands that one doesn’t succeed at writing—it is a continual, ever-evolving, growing craft of experience and practice…just like your marriage. And when you’re ready to have children, they will benefit from her gift of writing. They will be well educated (if not for good genes) on the proper usage of grammar and literary devices.

Marry a girl who writes and she’ll teach your children the value of words—the most powerful weapon used by mankind. She will instill in them the same passion that she was born with and that you have come to know as second nature…because with the combined passions of your family, you have the power to change the world.

Before she speaks, her mind inscribes her thoughts into words—lying in the empty space between her eyes and the atmosphere. So know that if you argue—which you will—she’ll be able to keep things sensible, calm and mature. She will read her own works so many times that she will look to you for reassurance of sanity. Reassure her.

The girl who writes knows that the power of the written word can transcend time and space. This is why she will keep a journal of your lives together. And when you are old and gray she will present it to your grandchildren as a way to inspire, encourage and challenge them to live a life so spectacular that it, too, must be documented.

Find a girl who writes because you deserve someone who will motivate you and humble you each and every day. You deserve to learn from the teachings of your own great writer that eloquent words are essential to human life. If her mind bursts into flames with an idea at 3 a.m. on a Saturday morning, let her write…because chances are, you lit the spark. And for her, the only thing that will be better than writing about the love you share is living the love you share.

Illustrations on being an Introvert (3)

7. For introverts, conveying what they really feel and think  can be challenging because we tend to think too much, we have a mental  conversation but most of the times we end up saying not a word of it. 

Expressing their feeling with ease without worrying too much is probably a forte an introvert wishes to have. They don’t want people to know what they truly feel with the exception of people they know of well and they trust. They would, oftentimes, spend time thinking about what they are about to convey too much, to have it only remain spoken loud in their head; they are just being cautious with their words, as they don’t want to utter misleading information or something they aren’t sure of yet. 

8. “Often alone, rarely lonely” best describes introverts state of being 

People of the opposite type would probably questioning how come introvert s able to bear being on their own company and remain at ease most of the time. It is as plain and simple an answer as because they don’t have the reasons why we can not be so, it is just a pleasure for them to be alone. Instead of lonesome, we feel so much recharged, calm and sane when we are alone.

9. A lot of people misunderstand an introvert as a standoffish, as the common saying says every one is unique’, so does an introvert.

Introverts can turn out be a friend you cherish the most, a friend of unorthodox wisdom about life; and it is beside the point of their possesing high emphaty. Instead of care less, an introvert is pretty compassionate. They would just rather stand aloof from the crowds simply because we have different way of getting stimulation, which is inwardly. They can be the best advisor, the counselor of your problem; because they see things from various angles, holistically, say. 

So, that’s all the illustrations that portray how an introvert is, and that is just how things work and operate for them.

4. Instead of lonesome, introverts are happy to be left alone

In the world of noise and uproar, to be missing in action can be a treat and dreadful for it will make their existence insignificant to others. Introverts do not go dissarray in a myriad of people walking to and fro; as they do not follow the crowds, they set and walk their own pace. Being single out instead is blessing in disguise for introverts, as they can do a lot of things without people intervening their plans. For instance, they don’t need anyone’s affirmation for their doing something, their liking certain genres and all their hidden quirks.

5. Loving an introverts can be likened to nurtur a child, it takes patient and compassion.

If you happen to love an introvert, there will come a moment when you will be confused and wondering what happen to him. If you are a person of the same sort, it is understandable, their missing a day without you hearing anything from him, but if you are of an opposite sort, all it takes is understanding and patient; as they are not going inland, they are probably sunked deep in their own personal excitement or what excites them.  Introverts are okay to hang out with you every now and then, but not frequently to the point of being clingy because it means intruding their privacy. Being an introvert, we put at the pedastal sincerity, thus we hate those not being true to themselves.

6. For the future dream house, introverts would love to have some secret spots like a shady nook

They would love to have their personally customized library or art studio and a secret cozy spot to chill; because they need to distant themselves for any noise, it is for the sake of retaining their sanity and seeking solace. Not a whit are introverts similar to antisocial; so let’s not confuse those two term.
