BOYS

Promiscuites

I liked this quote because it's somewhat true. I find it wrong and in today's socity I think it's changing. But, sometimes it is really true.

 

.... you had to act a certain way to get boys to like you and that did not include screaming with your girlfriends and running down the hall together. Those desirable girls were completely different with boys than they were being what they thought was normal. They got quiet and hesitant and appreciative, and they broke off the string of clever, ironic social observations that characterized their usual speech-even as the boys grew louder and more extroverted than they usually were. Boys flocked around the girls who had mastered this trick. Being sexy meant waiting and not doing, being watched rather than watching. (Wolf, 25)
