It’s hard to be goofy, especially if you’re a lady. If you suffer from goofiness, there’re some good tricks, therapeutic tricks out there you should explore. Remember the old Creole saying, “sere dan-w, lache ko-w”? “Tighten your teeth, loosen your body?” Men like the capriciousness of their ladies. Learn to laugh at yourself. No one wants to date a woman who takes herself too seriously. The purpose of entering into a relationship is to enhance your life and your partner’s life.
A relationship should make your life better. It should bring more happiness and fun into your life. A guy who is dating you is not going to be around for long if you’re consistently being negative or giving off bad vibes. Don’t focus on how bad your day was at work and what a jerk your boss is, or how much money you’ve lost in the stock market. No one wants to date Negative Nancy. The best way to diffuse a negative situation is to make light of it. Be positive, be happy, and don’t be afraid to laugh!
