When did I become such a girl??
Let me provide you with a little background information so that this will make sense. I’ve never been the most emotional of the female species. It takes quite a bit for me to cry, and I don’t tend to analyze things. I usually take what someone says to me at face value. I don’t like to “talk” about things. I prefer to pull the covers over my head (both literally and figuratively) than deal with an issue. There are instances in which I get jealous, and/or my feelings get hurt, but those occurences are few and far between. I may have been ultra-sensitive at some points in my life, but I can’t recall being so in recent years.
Now that all that has been explained…it might make more sense to you when I say that for many years I’ve joked that my husband and I are reversed in our personalities–that he is the girl and I’m the man in our relationship.
But recently, something has happened that has made these traits switch. And now I suddenly have a better understanding of where he’ s been coming from all these years when he complains that he doesn’t “feel close” to me, or that we don’t “make love” often enough, or that we never “talk”? And damn it, I don’t like it. I don’t like feeling all weepy and doubtful and insecure and alone and needy and…well….for lack of a better word…girlie.
Where did Jessica go??? I want her back. She would totally kick this Jessica’s ass.
