There is a lot that can be said for the nice guys. The geeks, the intellectuals and the emotional ones. Unfortunately not many are said because for the most part, it is guys like us that are usually left in the dust, ignored and taken for granted by all, save for when we are needed the most, and cast aside when the deed is done.
For the longest time, I used to believe that, there is no such thing as a happy ending, not for me anyway. That for all it’s worth, the human connection was too futile to invest in, much less finding someone willing to accept and appreciate, in open arms, who we are and what we’re capable of. Yet, in this resignation of a simple fate, I began to understand that being who I am, doesn’t always mean I know what I can do.
In the years that followed, I began to learn that for the most part, while guys like us tend to attract girls in dire need of emotional help, it is in that eventuality that wins over the ones that matter most in life. Not the girls that have so much more to explore in life, but the ones who are sick and tired of dealing with the same bullshit over and over again, and more so, the ones smart enough to never buy into the whole messy game in the first place.
It was in those years that I learned, just as I have been taken for granted for the person I am, so too have I taken for granted the women that I recently found myself connecting to on a deeper level than most. The geeks, the intellectuals, the practical ones, the ones that will stand by those they care for, only to be cast aside for shallower reasons than most. Doesn’t that sound so familiar? I would definitely think so.
So why shouldn’t it be that the girls for guys like us exist in a place where we have completely overlooked all this while? Why shouldn’t it be that the people who are our equals and our opposites share the same kind of recluse segregation from the normal public we so want to connect and be hurt by? Why shouldn’t it be that we get together to enjoy ourselves to see how far it goes, day after day, for as long as we both shall live?
Today, I still am that same geek, the same intellectual, the same emotional one, the same nice guy. I still have the same problems as before in connecting to a world that’s dressed ever so normally. This time though, I know that there are girls that reflect the same images as I do. The same quirkiness and eccentricity that I can appreciate and complement as they have with my own. This time, I know there are girls for guys like us.
And the best thing is, this time, I made sure they know I exist.
