I just paid for the unlimited plan for Buffer. Why? Because I jump online in 15-30 minute burns and tend to flood out my followers — Buffer allows me to spread my passion and interest — and sharing — over the next couple days. Took me a while to grok it but I am all grokked up.
I just received my review copy of Lory Gottlieb’s upcoming book, Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough and took it to the gym. It is a hardbound book so I quickly ditched the bright red dust jacket and jumped onto the elliptical machine — furtively, of course. Well, I am only 47 pages in but here are a couple interesting quotes:
“Greg made me feel like I was the most wonderful woman in the world,” she said. “So, then I started thinking, ‘If I’m so wonderful, maybe I should be with someone better.’”
We’d like a guy, but we don’t need a guy. So why should we lower our standards?
“I’d rather be alone than settle,” said Olivia, a 27-year-old Web designer, “I’ve had annoying roommates in my early twenties, but I don’t imagine having to eat all of my dinners and sleep in the same bed with a male roommate who happens to be the husband I settled for.”
“Women never want what’s available,” [Dan] said. “If [women] can’t find the perfect guy at thirty, they move on to find someone better. But they don’t learn from this. Even if they’re still alone five years later, they get pickier. Then they’re almost forty and they haven’t found the perfect guy, so they start to regret having broken up with us, but now we’re not interested in them anymore.”
I think this is called the law of diminishing return, right? I will add more as I find them. There are even more, but I don’t have the time right now.
