# 003 : The Super Man

In this day and age, super human powers don't exactly exist. I don't think anybody can do everything he wants to do at once. No one. There are some things you just can't do. There are just some things you can't control. This doesn't mean you're not a good person. It just means that you are a person.

When I get a guy, I don't expect him to be available for me 24/7. That's because I want a guy who actually has his own life. Of course, it wouldn't hurt if he could do nice things for me, like say, pick me up when I have to do stuff late. But, I don't expect him to do this all the time. That's why I'm resourceful. I can look for rides home or to wherever I'm going. He's not my driver after all.

But, it's not just about my vehicular situation, it's the fact that the guy is just doing these things because he feels as if it's his duty. Finding a way to some place is no one's responsibility but my own. If you're tired and can't bring me to wherever, it's fine. In fact, if you're just feeling lazy, or have a previous engagement, I'm not forcing you to drop your life for me.

Don't worry about your image too much. Because what I hate more than guys who feel like they have to do everything for their girlfriends because people might think they're being irresponsible boyfriends, is when the guy does something grudgingly and then tries to make you feel guilty or by implying that he's making such a huge sacrifice for me, when I never even forced him in the first place. Why go through all that torture for someone who you supposedly love, right? And what for? His image? So not worth it.

I'd rather not go some place with someone who's just feeling obliged to bring me there because I end up not having fun. And that was the entire point of going out in the first place. Everyone ends up in a foul mood, and there goes another thorn in the relationship.

So to all the wannabe Supermen, give it up. Please. For all our sakes. There are other ways to show your love for someone, and feeling obliged to do things for them isn't one of them. Besides, Christopher Reeve has passed away. Let's do him honor by not trying to be him. I prefer normal guys. Guys who show me that they don't have to be my chauffeur (because I don't want them to be), to be a great friend. Guys who don't have to travel so far just to get me somewhere, instead takes me places without leaving our seats. Guys who don't expect too much, and instead are happy with what I've got to give.

Allow me to quote from the wise words of a 13-year old (sex goddes a la Lindsay Lohan in the making), Jojo:

You ain't got to buy nothin'
(it's not what I want)
Baby it's you
We don't have to go nowhere
(it's not what I want)
Baby it's you
It's not 'bout what you got
I know you got alot
No matter what you do, you always get it hot its you (its you)
Baby all I want is you yeah

Not as profound as I was hoping for, but my sentiments exactly.

You don't need super human capabilities to impress me. Normal guys who can sometimes be geeks too, are perfectly fine.
