Ms Bettie’s Wrong Advice: Change Yourself!

You want him to like you. But the like ain’t movin’ too quickly, so you decide to make a change: Yourself.

I get it.

Relationships are so freakin’ hard. I figured I’d make ’em easier by just being, oohhh, something I wasn’t. I’ve nodded in agreement as my Joe said being an Atheist was the way to go, while I kinda grew up not doing that. At all. I’d spend a whole bunch of time and my last dime on a mani/pedi, eyebrow wax, getting my hair done and scheduling cosmetic surgery to change my “outtie” belly button to an “innie”  for a date with Joe, when I knew damn well I was a tom boy who liked to play in the dirt while pushing on my belly button like I was one those weirdo Bug Out Bob dolls.

You’ve done this, right?
