Not A Girl....Not Yet A Woman.

I found a Facebook chain-note actually worth reposting.

Girls want to control the man in their life.
Women know that if he's truly hers, he doesn't need controlling.

Girls check their men for not calling them.
Women are too busy to realize they hadn't.

Girls are afraid to be alone.
Women embrace it, and use it as a time for personal growth.

Girls ignore the good guys.
Women ignore the bad guys.

Girls make their men come home.
Women make their men want to come home.

Girls wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Women make their own plans and tell the guy to get in where he fits.

Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.

Girls try to monopolize all their man's time.
Women realize that a little bit of space makes the 'together time' even more special.

Girls think a guy who cries is weak.
Women offer their shoulder and a tissue.

Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Women know that was just one man.

Girls fall in love and chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all 'signs'.
Women know that sometimes the one you love, doesn't always love you back, and move on. Without bitterness.

Girls will read this and get an attitude.
Women will read this and pass it on to other women and their male friends.

Now obviously, this isn't the ultimate list that determines true womanhood. But I think it does make a good distinction between how women of different maturity levels approach relationships.
According to this, I'm about 20% Girl, 70% Woman, and 10% Other.

So, what's the verdict ladies? According to this criteria, are you a girl or a woman?

And what, in your opinion, is missing from the list?

Love the honesty. I read the list and thought about the females I've dealt with, and I thought to myself, 'I've never met one hundred perfect woman then.'


This is so true and funny as well; but a very accurate comparison.
