The Meantime Girl Dilemma

I first came across the term "meantime girl" through Shari Cruz's personal blog. It has been more than a year since but, although I have identified with the term strongly even then, I've had an epiphany about it just recently based on my own experience, in the light of certain recent events.

Meantime girl - because you are smart, sassy, sweet, fun, and actually wonderful to be around. Problem is, you are not like trophy girls na pang-display so guys, being the visually-stimulated asses that they are take advantage of your very winning personality and generosity habang wala pa silang pang-display na girlfriends. Nope, there's nothing wrong with you. It's just that maybe you are a bit way chubbier than the ideal sexy, curvy female, or guys think you are way too smart for everyday non-sense conversations, or too scaringly independent-minded. Worse, your moronic bunch of guy friends are so dreadfully in awe of you that without you knowing, they have put you up on a pedestal as a saint that they can talk with, ask for advice, cry over problems with, hug for comfort, and yet be untouchable and unreachable coz they think that you are way out of their league. Grrr! They did not even consider if you really did want to be a saint, ergo, to die a virgin. Bwiset!

And yet being the wholesome person that you are, you cannot see a way to shatter the myth. As if you can find it in yourself to act the playgirl part. Well, in your dreams, perhaps you do but in reality, you know you can't because you have no time to waste for worthless causes like that which may easily backfire and hurt you deeply in the end. And for what? All to prove that you are just like (almost like?) every other girl who deserves the best of attention and respect, and not just the meantime crap. Pathetic! But is there anyway out of it? Diet? New haircut? Wardrobe? Or just a mean kick in the groin for all guys who dare think of you and take advantage of you this way? What a dilemma! But then, it actually is up to you to deal with people who takes advantage of you. Either you tolerate them or not. Tsk! Knowing this does not in any way help solve the dilemma. So I guess we MEANTIME GIRLS are quite stuck, just until our bungling knights finally see the light of day after overcoming their overblown egos...

Hah! Fairytales! Ano'ng petsa na ba?!
