While most of us claim we have it all figured out, the truth is, we don't. No matter how set we are in our ways, there's always something that throws a curveball that just has to complicate things. Whether it's an ex deciding she wants to give it another go, or a roommate wanting to split town before the ink on the year-long lease even dries, things will never be perfect.
If you're like us, the one thing we try to control is our decisions, but even that takes a lot of work.
Without regard to feelings—both good and bad or yours or others—here are the things we tend to tell ourselves, even though deep down there's no way they're true. Oh well, deal with it pal, like we said, nothing will ever be perfect!
You Can Afford That
You just moved into a new place and want it to be the absolute most killer bachelor pad. There's just one major flaw—that old school 26-inch TV that was passed down from your Grandparents just isn't going to cut it.
Sure, you're in debt and still paying off student loans, but why not go to Best Buy and see what you can score for around $1000? Telling yourself you'll "only have to pay fifty bucks per month" to pay that TV off in two years probably isn't the soundest judgement, though.
You Look Just Like... (Fill in the Blank)
We get the whole doppelganger thing—everyone wants to look like a celeb—but the truth is, not everyone does.
So, just because you've got blonde hair and "the perfect five o'clock shadow," with a similar hairstyle, doesn't really mean you even closely resemble David Beckham. You may try and style yourself after him, but dude, be honest with yourself, girls aren't getting all weak in the knees that easily over you.
I Can Definitely Get That Girl
We're firm believers that any guy can seriously score any girl, it just comes down confidence, who the girl is and how much work it's going to take. But it has to be within reason.
As you already know, there are rules. Don't ever go after a girl for pure ego. The hottest girl in the bar knows every dude's looking at her, so if you try to make it about landing her just to impress your buddies, it's already over. If you do land her number, kudos, now be yourself and charm her, otherwise you'll be like every other guy who tries to be way too suave and you'll blow it.
I'm Not Going Bald
When you start seeing scalp, you're going bald. Embrace it. We're getting a little thin up top, but instead of running to Dr. Bosley and setting-up an appointment, we'll enjoy it while we can and then start styling it as we lose more.
The worst thing you can do is try to hold onto it for too long—or, worse, do the comb over—to try and cover everything up. Bald can be beautiful, man!
I'll Never Need to Know That
We're sitting across from a girl being tutored on Pre-Calc (poor girl), where she's trying to find the root of a problem. We can honestly say we're personally lucky enough to never have to do that crap again.
Unfortunately, there are certain things that are important that we just never gave a damn enough about to retain. It can be as simple as how to properly do taxes or how to write the most killer resume.
If you're stubborn enough to think you don't need to know something, you're most likely just ailing to admit that you really do, but you just don't want to.
