We Want What We Can't Have

We want what we can't have; it's a fact! If you ever want a 3-year-old boy to eat his food, just use reverse psychology and tell him he can't eat it and watch how fast he eats his dinner.  When we're kids we want each other's toy cars and Barbie dolls, when we're adults, it's each other's boyfriends and spouses. The whole world is filled with toddlers who want what isn't theirs to have.

I am no exception. A lot of times, people will ask me how I have time for a boyfriend. I usually laugh and say I don't. The dad of the little boy and girl I now nanny for asked me the other day, "You're so busy between working and then school in the fall and Quiz do you have time for a love life?" I answered him honestly: "What love life?" This made him laugh but it's true.

I don't date, not that many people try to sway me lol. But every once in a while, I want what I can't have, what I don't really have time for; sometimes I think it would be so fun just to date some guy (and by "some guy" I mean some guy that's "just right"). I mean, I'm in college right? But I have rules for these kinds of things (and no it's not nearly as boring as it sounds); I don't date. I can hang out with a guy. I can have a great time with a guy, but I don't date. Aren't I just the little masochist? Constantly tempting myself but never letting myself get what I want.

As I write this, there's a certain song that's running through my head. You know the one. By the Rolling Stones? You can't always get what you waaant. You can't always get what you wa-ant. You can't always get what you wa-ant, but if you try sometimes well you might find... you get what you neeed oh yeah!  Except, am I getting what I need?

That's all for now folks
Stay tuned for more Randomocity and keep reading!


  1. I totally get this. Once in while I think it would be nice but I don't have the time for a relationship so I tend to shut people down right away.

  2. So you know exactly what I mean then lol

  3. This post made me remember when I was a kid and I would only want things when other people had them. I might still be the same kid I used to be. Yikes!

    Anyway, love the blog - following!

  4. You'll have time soon enough and by then I'm sure you'll want something else that seems impossible at the time. Life is crazy like that!

  5. So just quit wanting whatever it is you wanted and it will conveniently fall right into your lap soon enough.

    I think this goes perfectly with your earlier observation about being hit on by other females. It has nothing to do with how you act or look, it's all about what you want.

    I'm not sure this applies to actual needs, though.

  6. @Not Who I Will Be: Glad you like it!!! Thanks for following

    @theTsaritsa: that's so true!

    @fellow Citizen: I'll try
