Don’t you just miss the early days of Thought Catalog and Tumblr where articles were written as if it were diaries unintentionally gone public. Little by little, these early entries became templates of inspiration til well, TC became what it is now. One of the enjoyable ones to read was the “Date the Girl” posts, although I always felt like each one gets so mundane. Anyway, in case you felt like making excuses for your self- to write or to be dated, here are prompts that someone is bound to write:
Date a girl who wears contact lenses
because the only thing that’s not perfect about her is her vision. besides, four-eyed girls can’t get all the fun, right?
Date a girl who has not traveled yet, ever.
Be the someone who opens her world to a better one. Hold her hand as you board the plane, she may not show it, but she’s terrified. Let her know that there’s no place like home and that she is your home.
Date a girl who does not own a smartphone
If you’re lucky enough to come across this rare creature, you’ll find more meaning in conversations across dinner tables. Time with her will leave no digital trace, and this is why she makes it more memorable as much as she could.
Date the girl you’ve purposely ghosted before
because you’re an asshole.
Date a girl who proudly admits that she’s not part of the bandwagon
past all those moments when you just want to watch GoT and be like everyone else without being called out, she’s just the girl who’s just possessive enough because she knows no one cares about things deeply more than she does. Because she knows it requires more than just posts and hashtags to show your dedication.
Date a girl who pays on the first date
There’s a lot more to lose than your ego if you lose her.
Date a girl who has a creative curated IG feed
because it took a lot of trials and errors for her ’til she found the one thing that works for her; she’s consistent and she’s never letting go.
Date a girl who loves uncomplicated ice cream flavors
like a good ol‘ plain chocolate, vanilla, mango, ube or strawberry ice cream. Because in a world that demands a bit of everything, she finds joy and contentment in simplicity.
Date a girl who’s in post-graduate school
she only needs three things: coffee, simple messages throughout the day and extra trendy highlighters.
Date a girl who owned a PlayStation one
see her eyes sparkle in awe as she talks about Crash and Coco of Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon like they were her best friends. Talk about the games you played to and it will feel like you’ve known each other since you were eight.
Date a girl who does not know how to swim
Drown her with your love instead.
Date a girl who has a religious skin care routine
she’s the girl that’s completely unaware that her personality is enough to keep her glowing. you’ll learn to take care of your self too in the process
Date a girl who commutes
she’s smart on the streets..and she rocks the sheets — cause commute life is just exhausting.
Date a girl who eats rice with spaghetti
A girl who is not without Rice has good taste and is her own person. Be someone who finds no need to pretend to be someone else with her. Take a giant leap of faith on this girl — or an extra cup of rice.
Date the girl with a winged eyeliner
she may not have those VS wings, but she will leave your heart soarin’. and these one-liners are sure to match with her on-fleek eyeliner.
Date the girl with an uncommon college degree
unlike her degree – she does not need to explain her self and to get validation from your or anyone. she’s feisty, mysterious and always uncertain but her uncertainties are not enough to stop her from celebrating her life.
Date the girl with the same height as you
There’s absolutely no reason to think highly of her (resulting in unrealistic expectations), or to look down on her – no one should ever be treated that way. Instead, you’re equal in all ways – and that’s what relationships are about.
Date the girl who believes in astrology
The internet has blessed you with all the guides, much more helpful than the stars do. You can never go wrong..unless the mercury is in retrograde.
Date a girl who orders the same thing at Jollibee EVERY.TIME.
Don’t confuse this with her being too stiff, she also lives to experience things. But when it comes to the things she has set her heart to, she’s loyal to it AF.
Date the girl who’s into Spanish telenovelas
She’s a breather in this world of K-dramas and American SitCom fangirls, this girl is not afraid to take passion to its emotional and visual context — and unapologetic about it. She loves the drama of countrysides and horseback rides..she gives giddy an extra up.
Date a girl who breathes
…unless you’re into necromancy and stuff.
ps: this list has nothing to do with what I am. Although yes, spaghetti goes with rice!
