Please tell me you were as obsessed about the blue and black/white and gold dress phenomenon as I was. I mean, of course you were. You’re a human with internet connection. That one little dress set the internet ablaze. Some people took a look at the picture and saw a blue and black dress. Others saw a white and gold dress. It turns out, that it’s all about color theory and the way our brains perceive things and color isn’t real and blah bliggity blah. Whatever. The bottom is line is the people can look at the same image and see completely differently things. It happened with this dress picture in a very pointed way, but it happens in a million different ways in real life. And when you’re in a relationship with someone and he sees a situation differently than you do, it can be a real challenge. Here’s what to do.
Today I want to talk about what it is to be petty, and how it affects the people around you. I want to share a story with you that happened to a good friend of mine:
His name is Brett. You can thank him for the magical words that come across this screen every single day. Without Brett, my grammar would be somewhere in between Britney Spears and Snoop Dogg.
It goes without saying that in one of our favorite books, now movie, Gone Girl, Amy Elliot Dunne is fully aware of how to play a "cool girl". What is a "cool girl" you ask? Well, in its simplest form a "cool girl" is a guys-girl, the girl whose boyfriends friends all say, "dude she's the best!".
"Cool girls" are the ones who look perfect at all times, even after "rolling out of bed". They drink hard liquor and beer and never get sloppy drunk. They can talk sports all night and laugh at dirty jokes. All guys want a "cool girl". And... why wouldn't they? "Cool girls" are basically dudes that are attractive, have boobs, and are down for absolutely anything in the bedroom. "Cool girls" always get the guy. The thing guys don't realize is that this "cool girl" does not exist. No girl is entirely this cool, she is simply a role well played.

The problem isn’t with what you’re selling. It’s the way you’re trying to sell it. Forget the razzle-dazzle and speak from the heart.
