I want a girl that likes me.

A girl that is cute, but not a bimbo.
A girl that’s smart, but not snobbish.
A girl that’s flirty, but not because they’re trying to piss off their boyfriend.
A girl who knows all my weaknesses and doesn’t care.
A girl who you can leave alone with temptation and not worry about being hurt.
A girl that’s broken but beautiful just the way she is.
A girl who grew up never getting quite enough love,
and needs me to help her catch up.
A girl that needs cuddles to live.
A girl that doesn’t care what we do together, as long as we’re together.
A girl that throws shit from across the room at me if I make a bad joke.
A girl that high fives me if I make a good one.
A girl that doesn’t care what her friends or parents think.
A girl that doesn’t worry about what she looks like without makeup,
because she knows she’s cute (especially when I remind her).
A girl that ogles other girls just as hard, if not harder, than I do.
A girl that zones out when someone starts talking about celebrities,
but whose ears perk up if someone cites a meme or mentions video games.
A girl who carries around sharpies just to draw things on my hands.
A girl who knocks on my door at 3am and crawls into bed with me.
A girl who calls me a faggot if I bug her for anal.
A girl that returns a shoulder rub instead of backing out after she gets hers.
A girl that has plenty in common with me,
but disagrees enough that we can still have debates.
A girl that doesn’t mind being teased,
because she’s just as likely to make fun of me.
A girl that says things like “suck my dick,” because that’s cute
(unless she actually has one, in which case it’s not cute, it’s awesome).
A girl who isn’t mindlessly attracted to dumb things like rock stars,
shoe sales, and bad romantic comedies.
A girl who can drop a sick rant about religion.
A girl who makes her own morals.
A girl who hisses when the sun comes up.
A girl who eats raw cookie dough, even though you shouldn’t.
A girl that wears clothes because they feel good, not because they look good.
A girl that laughs louder the more offensive the joke.
A girl that defies the linear law of hot/crazy ratio.
A girl that discovers your porn folder and drags it into her flash drive instead
of the recycling bin.



A girl that likes me.

Not because I’m “someone.”
Not because she’s trying to get over someone else.
Not because I convinced her to date me.
Not because she’s afraid of being alone.
Not because she’s drunk.
Not out of pity.
Or boredom.
Or lust.
But because she likes me.

--------------

Originally that text was going to go on the image; I do so hate descriptions that are show-offy leakage from the piece of art itself. But it was an awful image and the text just didn't make it better, so I'm dumping it here.

Some of the things I listed appear in chibi form around the image itself.

Yes, that's supposed to be me. and it's some random girl. Not necessarily what my ideal girl would look like (although a girl who wore pauldrons casually would be so cool, it violates one of the lines of text, and she would surely be snatched up by some cooler guy before I could get to her :p). I realize how faggoty this makes me. But sometimes I whine about my loneliness in a drawing and sometimes it turns out decent. And besides, I needed to learn how to color again. I think it turned out okay. Make fun of me if you must, but at least I think I got the pose right |:p

Oh whoa whoa... (<- the sound of dog like whining) damn, I'm so sad you and i don't know each other! You just made me fall in love with you... -pout- God: infinity / Me: 0
He's gotta stop giving me such a hard time and give me a break eventually... (sorry, the only answer I've ever gotten as to why I've not met my side of this beautiful picture and text is that "God hates me")

You know. That text pretty much describes me and my best friend. But I'm taken, and she's a lesbian. xD

Still, I love the picture. Gorgeous coloring, and the chibis in the background are an adorable offset to the figures in the foreground.

Hnnngh. I've been watching you since like, idk, 2003 or 2004, back when you were still with someone. :C I always wondered how lucky those girls were because they got talented guys that they can play video games with and nerd out with, and ffff throw food at. etc.

haha.
:> TL;DR, I hope you're feeling better. We all got times of urghhdfgdgs.

I mean no malice in my words when I say this, good luck sir.


I particularly appreciate the hint of humor you put into this, despite how not-funny it really is.
I think everyone knows this feeling at one time or another.



I personally believe that a person shouldn't require a relationship to be happy... but it is truly a wonderful thing when such a deep friendship is formed.

Weird, I get an odd sense of looking in the mirror when I read the description. lol Did you write the words or did you pull them from something?

and I think that the color should extend in the scarf behind her. Maybe not all the way to the edge but id say at least half of the way. If the color fades out then maybe the aqua outline could with it too. I think you pretty much nailed the pose too, it reads well.

Nothing wrong with shooting for the moon when it comes to love. Far too many people just take whatever relationship they can get, and in the end thats not really a relationship worth having.

Keep going man, you'll find someone

I'm trying to figure out which quality on the list is represented by the girl with the eyepatch in chibi form... can't figure it out.

and by the way, don't be surprised if someday you fall in love with a girl that isn't at all like the girl you describe.

you know i thought.....is he talking about me? but then i realized nah~ he doesn't know me that well from the short description i gave when he drew me. it seems that there are plenty of girls here on DA that actually fit that description 100% you should just open a journal and let that girl in the drawing come to you! hahaha~ XD

o,o; and yes about 95% of that drawing is what i am, but having my IDOL actually say "wow really? then i love you! =B" would probably just make me fall over and pass out for about 15 hours minimum. but I'm sure there are at least 100 other girls like that on DA that match up to 70-100%! post a journal!! they shall come!~

that is...if you really want to find that special snowflake~ then that is a perfect way to. (in my opinion anyways)

I once found a guy so perfect for me.
But it's moot. He lives on the other side of the world.
My friends will have to do. As much as I hate them, and would ditch them in a moment for a better set.
Hhuuhhhh.. It's me, at the end of the day, not them.
I stopped looking for girls when it became clear breeding isn't such a priority these days.

...and this iz when all people go 'awwh', & all the guys agree she doesn't exist, and all the super modest chics be all like "well i'm taken~ YOU WERE LATE MATT, GAWD." |'B

It may be the optimist in me, but i like to believe that all people, regardless of sex have the potential to be great or at least interesting in their own quirky way~~ ^^-;

compatibility..... now that wondrously odd facet of attraction that confuses and eludes even those well versed in the game :'3 .......and it's funny coz it's really so simple. ^^-;

They are out there,..... and mebbe aot closer than you think, make sure you are waiting with eyes and arms open~~ \|'3

This describes me to a tee. My boyfriend tells me all the time how lucky he is to have me. Seeing this further proves he's right! Sigh... Sometimes I wish I had little clones of myself for all the nice guys that had their hearts broken. Don't worry, you'll find your dream girl. Follow your heart. Never settle, and if the girl eludes you, never give up.
