As we begin this relationship you might be a little apprehensive about adding another blog to your already heavy blog dating life. You may be saying to yourself “Here’s another thing to read. It’s probably like all the others. I can’t commit to one more blog. I’m not looking for a one night fling. I’m interested in a serious relationship.”
Or perhaps you are somewhat of a blog virgin. In which case you might be thinking “Man I don’t know if I’m ready for this kind of relationship. Its all so new to me. What can I expect? It’s my first time.” Either way let me put some of your concerns to rest.
You certainly do have time for one more (or one) blog because this blog won’t break up with you. In fact, the post you are currently reading, marks our first date. It is the ideal first date filled with butterflies in the tummy and a rich chocolate shake with two straws for us to share.
And here’s what I can assure you: I will be faithful—faithful to Modern Reject’s voice and purpose and faithful to being generally awesome.
I also promise to be available and open, like any boyfriend and girlfriend, we can stay up late talking for hours. You have a question hit me up. You want to chat, send me an email. You’ve got troubles let me know how to pray and I will.
I also promise to not bail on you if say, the quarterback asks me out. Or if say another blog thinks I’m really cool. Basically I won’t ditch you for the next hot thing whatever that hot thing might be.
I will also try my darndest to be funny because humor is essential to any healthy relationship. Now I can’t guarantee that you’ll laugh out loud at all posts but I’m fairly confident that I can at least bring a smirk to your face. You know the kind of weird sideways smirk you make when something is kinda clever and a bit funny at the same time. And if while you had that smirk on your face, your friend or spouse or whomever were to look over at you and say “What’s so funny?” You’d respond with “Nothin’ you know, just something I read.” I hope to be that kind of funny.
And as my significant other you gotta have my back. I need you to look out for me too.
If for instance I start to put on a little too much weight, you know, too many ads, too many tags, too many links, just say so with “Nicole, unload would ya?” And I will.
If there comes a time too when I start to tell the same jokes again and again just knock me up side the head.
And don’t let me leave the house in some hideous green sweater that bulges and makes me look like a lumpy Christmas tree. In other words, as my better half, if I start heading in a direction that is unflattering or am rocking something that is not my best gear, be honest. I’ll listen.
And please don’t compare me to your past blogs or even current blogs. I’m my own unique person. I’m not here to compete with them. I know some other blog might be a really good kisser or be constantly hilarious. But man that’s a lot of pressure. Let me be Modern Reject and you won’t be disappointed.
I know that all relationships have their ups and downs but trust, humor, and the occasional awesome make out session can sure go a long way. Here’s to being the perfect couple.
P.S. So do you want to go out?
