Why I’m Making Femininity a Priority this Year

Someone asked me what I wanted for Christmas last month and I said “Tell Santa to send me a husband. Now.” I waited, and I did not get what I wanted, so it looks like I’m going to have to make things happen on my own. Now that New Year’s Eve has come and gone, now is the time for me to make a list of my goals, wants and desires for the next year. Unsurprisingly, my goals are focused on getting married. Thankfully, I realized at a young age (26) the feminist scam of putting my career above creating a family, so I know that time is of the essence. As a result, my list of New Year’s resolutions focuses on getting married while I still have four years of my twenties left.

My resolutions

Look nice everyday

There’s a reason why looking feminine is listed as a high-priority goal in some of the country’s bestselling books on romance and dating, including, The Rules, Think Like a Man, Act Like A Lady and Marry the Rich. This is a goal that sounds simple, but is not. When it comes to my clothes, I have no problem wearing a dress everyday because a own very few pants. But other that, I am a mess. My hair is almost never done (it takes a while to style very curly hair), I wear very little makeup during the work week and I almost never wear high heels. As I have written before, I am working on wearing more heels, but it is a challenge in the wintertime because I own very few boot heels. It is also difficult and dangerous to walk in the snow in heels.

I’d like to make it a habit to wear false eyelashes everyday because they look very nice. I would also like to make a larger investment on my hair. Men love long hair, so I’m going to need to make an effort to add weaves and extensions to my hair (even if it dents my wallet a bit).

Learn to cook and entertain

There was a time, long before women went out for Sex and the City-type brunches, when women used to entertain and host dinner parties. I want to host those kinds of home social events. In order to do that, I need to first learn how to cook. I will blog about my experiences as I learn my way around the kitchen over the next year.

Self-explanatory.

Quit my job

At 26 years old, I cannot continue to work a job that sucks out 55 hours of my time (plus an additional 10 hours for commuting) a week. I can spend that much time sitting behind a desk when I’m 60 years old, sure, but I no longer have an interest in working long office hours while I am in the peak of my youth. I do not have a final plan yet for my escape, but if I’m still working at my job by June 2015, I’m am going to be very disappointed in myself.

It’s feminine, it’s sexy and I feel great doing it. Best of all, it’s a great way to meet men!
