women i want to marry

Soft

It starts with a bar of soap.

For God’s sake, Kent thinks to himself in the “personal care” section of the grocery store. Why does Dove think I’m allergic to purple just because I’m a guy?

He picks up the lavender-scented bar soap and inhales. It smells heavenly. Next he tries the sandalwood-scented from the men’s section. It comes in a gray box and costs fifty cents less. It smells good but it reminds him of floor polish.

I’m a grown-ass man, Kent thinks, and buys the lavender soap.

The next time he’s out of body wash, he spends thirty minutes trying to decide on one of the many “manly” smells before caving to “Cocoa Cabana” in the women’s aisle because it smells like Valentines Day in a bottle. 

After that it’s his deodorant body spray, trading in “Bold” (whatever the fuck boldness smells like) for “Fresh Cotton.” 

The first time Jeff catches a whiff of it on him, he asks, “New fabric softener? It smells awesome.”

“Nah, switched deodorants.”

“Huh.” Jeff nods in approval. “Well, you smell like fresh blankets out of the dryer. I have a physical urge to hug you.”

Kent laughs. Jeff hugs him and he laughs more. It’s nice.

After five months, nearly every toiletry Kent owns has been switched over from an endless variety of blacks, grays, and occasional dark greens and blues to white, purple, soft brown, yellow, and pink. Showers have transformed from a perfunctory necessity to something luxurious. Women’s products are so indulgent. They make Kent feel and smell like he’s been at a spa. He does have to learn to juggle the fragrances appropriately or risk smelling like a perfume store vomited on him. But it’s worth it, for how good he feels after. He feels pampered. His skin is softer, his hair shines, and even his pits and crotch look and feel cleaner. He doesn’t know if it’s the products or because he really cares about the maintenance, now, since he’s got all these specialty items to try. It doesn’t matter. He feels great.

Kent now has honest-to-God bubble baths and detox-salt-soaks. He’s got body butters and face masks and a lip balm in almost every flavor. The ladies at the Lush at the mall know him by name.

Kent’s still single. He’s got his cat for company, though, and the guys, who drop by or come over for movie and game nights and get drunk and eat all his food and pretend to chirp him for the specialty lemongrass-scented hand soap in his bathroom. Sometimes, on roadies, Swoops will plop down next to him on a bus or a plane and say loudly, “Damn, who’s got chocolate and isn’t sharing? Oh, it’s just Parser. Fuck you for getting my hopes up,” and then he’ll noogie Kent or grab his fingers and gnaw on them.

(The coaches have had to break them up before and it’s very unbecoming of two adult men.)

More than once, one of the guys has fallen asleep next to Kent and ended up face-first in Kent’s shoulder. They’ll wake up blearily, rubbing their eyes and saying, “Whoops, sorry man, didn’t mean to drool on you.” Kent was confused at first but he’s realizing that it’s because they gravitate towards the scent of him in their sleep. He smells like comforting things: honey and chocolate and cotton and Shea. He smells like warmth and safety. It’s why he likes all the things he buys, so it makes sense the guys would like that, too.

Nobody rags on him for it. They chirp him, but that’s different. Chirping, light-hearted and giggly, means acceptance. Soon his teammates start coming up to him in the locker room or nudging him on a bus and saying, “Parser, can I borrow some of your stuff?” and leaving with key-lime lips or cocoa-butter hands.

But it’s when he catches Sunny—big, burly, greatly-bearded d-man Sunny—pulling a bright orange tube of passion fruit lip balm out of his bag and slicking it on in front of everyone that he knows for sure that it’s okay.

What she says: I’m fine

What she means: Even though Deadpool has been confirmed as pansexual, there hasn’t been a lot of canon same-sex relationships in his history. We get subtle hints and see Wade be openly attracted to people of all genders but so far he’s only been in explicit relationship with women. Yes, there was his relationship with Cable but even then it might have been one-sided and it was never outright confirmed in the comics. Deadpool’s “true love” death is even represented as a women most of the time. Deadpool has had numerous relationships and there are plenty of occurrences in the comics where he flirts with women but his attraction to men and non-gender conforming people isn’t really shown in the same light. I want Deadpool to confirm his pansexuality in the comics and movies. Instead of creators confirming Wade’s sexuality and only giving subtle hints in comics, the creators should actually make Wade openly pansexual and have him in same-sex relationships.

i want Andrew to be a survivor okay i want Nurse and Andrew to meet again 8'l

You are..

You are the wave,
that breaks me,
and the most I crave,
I never thought you’d be.

You are the direction,
that shows me the way out,
when I’m losing conception,
and falling for doubt.

You are the gravity,
that brings me down to earth,
I let you calm my impulsivity,
because you’re worth.

You are the heat,
that unfreezes the blood in my vein,
and reduce my heart-beat,
when I can’t ease the pain.

You are the attraction,
I never get enough,
my kind of perfection,
and the one, I love.

gotta get this renee young hate off my fucking dash or i swear i’ll hit someone

I was thinking…for me it’s better I don’t romanticize things as much anymore. I was suffering so much all the time. I still have lots of dreams, but they’re not in regard to my love life. It doesn’t make me sad, it’s just the way it is. That’s why I’m in a relationship with somebody who’s never around. Obviously, I can’t deal with the day to day life of a relationship. Yeah, we have, you know, this exciting time together and then he leaves, and I miss him, but at least I’m not dying inside. When someone is always around me, I’m like suffocating! I know I said that I need to love and be loved, but when I do it quickly makes me nauseous! It’s a disaster… I mean I’m really happy only when I’m on my own. Even being alone…it’s better than…sitting next to a lover and feeling lonely. It’s not so easy for me to be all romantic. You start off that way and after you’ve been screwed over a few times…you…you…you forget about all your delusional ideas and you just take what comes into your life. That’s not even true I haven’t been…screwed over, I’ve just had too many blah relationships. They weren’t mean, they cared for me, but… there was no real…connection or excitement. At least not from my side. You know…it’s not even that. I was…I was fine, until I read your fucking book! It stirred shit up, you know? It reminded me how genuinely romantic I was, how I had so much hope in things, and now it’s like…I don’t believe in anything that relates to love. I don’t feel things for people anymore. In a way…I put all my romanticism into that one night, and I was never able to feel all this again. Like…somehow this night took things away from me and…I expressed them to you, and you took them with you! It made me feel cold, like if love wasn’t for me! You know what? Reality and love are almost contradictory for me. It’s funny…every single of my ex’s…they’re now married! Men go out with me, we break up, and then they get married! And later they call me to thank me for teaching them what love is, and…and that I taught them to care and respect women! You know, I want to KILL them!! Why didn’t they ask ME to marry them? I would have said “No”, but at least they could have asked!! But it’s my fault, I know it’s my fault, because…I never felt it was the right man. Never! But what does it mean the right man? The love of your life? The concept is absurd; the idea that we can only be complete with another person is…EVIL!! RIGHT??!! You know, I guess I’ve been heartbroken too many times. And then I recovered. So now, you know, from the start I make no effort…because I know it’s not going to work out, I know it’s not going to work out.

Also

I may not have wanted to admit this before, but I’m glad I wasn’t socialized as a boy growing up. I mean being treated like a girl sucked and the way girls are treated is fucked up. But I wouldn’t have that perspective had I not live two decades of my life as a girl (though I was never a girl). That experience makes me a huge advocate for women’s rights, being a guy who lived it for two decades I’m one of the few guys who understands what it’s like to be treated a certain way based on what letter was put on my birth certificate. I’m one of the few guys who knows what it’s like to be judged based on my body and looks. I’m one of the few guys who knows what periods and endometriosis are like. I’m one of the few guys who understands the kind of standards placed on women as far as role in society goes. I know what it’s like to be sexually harassed/assaulted, even before turning 13. The expectation to be a mother and to be a wife family had of me without even asking who I’d marry, if I’d marry, if I wanted kids, etc.

Women have it fucking rough. I will never be one of those guys who thinks you’re being over dramatic about problems you face.

BTS MTL | A foreign girlfriend

Anonymous Request: Do you do MTL’s? If yes, can you do one to their girlfriend being a foreigner? If not, a reaction would be really nice💜💜

A/A: Ok so the request is, Which member would most likely have a foreign girlfriend to least. I hope that is what you meant and I hope you like it.


MOST:
Namjoon: Ok,Namjoon appears to be the most westernized one out of BTS. I think he is very liberal in his thinking and his views. Also, he speaks English, which gives him some more points. He is also more exposed to other cultures than some of the others. 

Originally posted by joonie-bts

Yoongi: I think that after Namjoon,  Yoongi would be the most open to dating a foreigner. Yoongi doesn’t really care for such thing. If he vibe really well with you and he likes you….He likes you. You not being Korean wouldn’t be a big deal for him. 

Originally posted by kawaiimoonlight

Jungkook: The next person is Jungkook who happens to be the youngest.  His travelling as a BTS member have expose him to different cultures, Therefore he see how others live. When you are exposed to other cultures at a young age, it sort of change your views of the world.  Which would give him an open mind. He wouldn’t mind dating a foreigner. 

Originally posted by sgfgdolans

Taehyung: The next person on the list is Taehyung. I think that Taehyung would be open to dating foreigner because he just has that vibe. He wants other people to be accepting of him, therefore he is the same towards them. He’s very open to people and he always get along with people, no matter where is at. 

Originally posted by liddylou10

Hoseok: The last person on the list is Hoseok. Hoseok is sort of in the middle for me. He’s appears to be very outgoing and he is accepting of people but then he has this other side to him that I would consider as “Conservative”. I think he would worry at first, but once he gets to know the person and decided that he really like them. He’d forget that you’re a foreign and give you all of his love. Also, he might have a crush on Tinashe, who is Black.

LEAST:

 Jimin: I’m sorry but I just feel that Jimin would be uncomfortable with dating someone who wasn’t Korean. I’m sure he’s attracted to girls and women who aren’t Korean but I think he’d want to marry a Korean woman and settle down in Korea. 

Originally posted by kawaiimoonlight

Jin: The last person and person who would least likely date a  foreigner is Jin. Jin is very conservative. Plus, he probably have already plan his whole life and his whole life is staying in Korea and settling down there and marrying someone who comes from where he is from.

Married To The Boss [Two] | Rap Monster

Originally posted by choke-me-namjoon

Namjoon finds that his dad wants him to marry right away or he’ll make him give up the company for the time being to search for one.


My hyperventilating has finally calmed down after the shock passed. I’ve been rocking back and forth in my chair with a paper bag in my hand. Mr. Kim has been pacing around until he noticed my breathing slowing back to its normal pace.

“You okay?” He asks.

I nod placing the bag on my lap. It takes everything that I have to keep myself from starting again. Finally I look my boss in the face. Instantly, my heart began to constrict. Out of all the people that this could have happened with, it had to be with my boss. I married him and on top of that we slept together. I would’ve been fine with the sleeping with part, at least that can be forgotten but marriage is something completely different.

“I know things happened last night and one of them being this.” He waves his left hand up.

“I understand Mr. Kim and I am fully ready to cooperate in getting this settled and forgotten about.”

“That’s great, but I actually have other plans.”

“Huh, what other plans?”

“Since we’re already in this predicament I have to ask you if you could continue to be my wife.”

Nothings going to be the same anymore and you’re not sure how you’re going to break it to Steve what if he isn’t ready, what if you’re not ready to give your life as part of the Avengers. Everything changes when something goes bad and the team including Steve is waiting for answers. 


“Why do you think that?” Sam’s eyes on your face.

Realization

So yesterday I realized a lot of my male Asian friends love black women.
And it’s not even anything sexual.
They’re like “ I just want to marry a black queen and have my kids, and a future”
They really love black women.

It’s crazy cause my friend Joey was dead serious when we were in school that no other type of women ever catch his eye but Black women, but we were 15 and 16 back then. Now we are 22 and 24, and he’s really serious on trying to have a Black family.

Now my homie Brandon whom’s Cambodian lived in N. C. Where he grew up around nothing but Black people. But his uncles and aunts were married to Black People.
We were talking and he was telling me every black woman he dated treated him great but time had passed and they just grew apart, and they always had his back no matter what had happened.

He walks around talking pro-black. And talks about how black women are the real queens of the earth. If you ever get to hear him speak about Black women. You know it’s not a fetish at all. It’s nothing but positives and positive reflections.

There’s a whole slew of my Asian guy friends who love Black women I would post more but if you guys were around them you’d be surprised🙌🏽.

I hope they find their Significant Other.

Not A Perfect World: a Nurse Offstill fanfic

In which my OC Nurse Offstill and Harold have a private talk in her office. 


A lot of students came to her office in tears, because of some pain or another. If it wasn’t a skinned knee, it was a classmate’s mean remark. A nosebleed, or Principal Krupp’s severity. A splinter or a broken heart over a bad grade. Nurse Offstill considered it her duty and her privilege to cure all of it, and cure it all she did, with her supplies, her equipment, her secret stash of biscuits that she shared only with the kids, and her sympathetic ear. The students at Jerome Horwitz Elementary came to her for care and support for almost everything. 

Well, it had been almost everything, until the day Harold Hutchins stepped into her office, looking deeply distressed. 

Without a word, Nurse Offstill put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door and closed it so that they could be alone and uninterrupted. She knew that look on his face. It was the look kids made when there was something eating them alive, a woe or a guilty secret they had to share before it led to their mental breakdown. Throughout her career as a pediatric nurse she’d heard more confessions than a priest. And, like a priest, she considered the confessions to be sacred and never shared them.

CHAPTER ELEVEN - NEW BEGINNINGS

Duns House, Berwickshire

Harper had drawn a bath, which was a rare treat, and Abby was relaxing in it, steam rising from the water and her skin into the cold air of the room. The bath was close to the fire but there was still a chill in the air. November had arrived, and with it cold mornings, crisp days and long, dark nights. Since their conversation in the garden two days ago, Harper had fussed over Abby non-stop, plying her with herbal potions, massaging soothing oils into her skin, making sure the cook fed her as much fresh food as was available. It was all designed to lift Abby’s mood, and it was working, in its own way. She had resigned herself to her fate, realised that worrying herself sick over it would not change anything, and with that acceptance had come a strange contentment. What would be, would be.
