Tell Me I'm Right, Baby

There’s some­thing about a girl that apol­o­gizes. It’s like it makes her more human. I’ve always been one who likes girls who have their off days, instead of look­ing like a mil­lion bucks all the time. I guess it lets me know that they aren’t just super­fi­cial all the time, that they know that looks aren’t always important.

But when a girl apol­o­gizes, man. It turns me on. They know that they’re flawed in a way, and they have the “con­scious­ness” to under­stand it.

It shows that they’ve reached the third level of under­stand­ing, as out­lined below, the first level being com­plete igno­rance, and the fourth level being com­plete enlightenment:

  1. I don’t know that I don’t know
  2. I don’t know that I know
  3. I know that I don’t know
  4. I know that I know

Not only does apol­o­giz­ing show that one is at a cer­tain level of self-awareness, it shows that one is mature enough to admit this to one­self. And, as we know, matu­rity is fuck­ing hot.

It’s the admit­ting to one­self that I find is much harder for peo­ple. So many peo­ple that I run into have such closed minds that they refuse to believe any­thing that goes against what they’ve believed for most of their lives. Sometimes, when one admits one was wrong, it inval­i­dates a huge chunk of ones life and world­view. It’s a hard thing to do, and it takes strength, open-mindedness, and intelligence.

Of course, apol­o­giz­ing is noth­ing with­out change, with­out learn­ing. Someone who learns greatly from their mis­takes, and who isn’t afraid of mak­ing them for the sake of learn­ing, is just amazing.

It all adds up; almost every­thing that I look for in a girl is encap­su­lated in one sim­ple act of apol­o­giz­ing. It cer­tainly makes things much simpler.

Yet more com­pli­cated at the same time.
