as much as i like the video for the candyfloss cuteness it brings along, i must admit that i find this song (which im sure is written by a man), terribly sexist!!
i mean why o why is this song telling only the girl to change (read 'prove her love') so much??
Show him that you care’ just for him.
Do the things that he likes to do.
Wear your hair just for him’ ’cause’
You won’t get him’ thinkin’ and prayin’’
Wishin’ and hopin’.
sorry boss! personally i'd choose to differ in this regard.
why should i do the things he likes to do and wear my hair the way he would like..
he should keep away from these areas and i think we should manage just fine..but he cannot expect to wrap me around his finger in exchange of a wedding ring around mine..
i'd rather be single and happy than have a sexist husband who will keep telling me how to dress and what to do.
ok enough said in favour of women's lib, let me proceed to explain why i disagree with the song in the first place---
see its like this--i agree that wishing and hoping and thinking and praying wont get you into his heart, but neither is holding and kissing and squeezing and caring if you arn't there to begin with..
if you keep doing the things he likes to do and start dressing and even wearing your hair only to please him, just to get a wedding ring around your finger, then there are chances that married or not, you may end up losing your identity along with your mind in due course of time!
so my advice to all the girls out there would be--
just be yourself!!
you dont need to 'show' him that you care..that will be obviously evident if you do..and neither do you need to do anything uncomfortable just to prove how much you love him.
because only if he loves the 'you' that you love, it would mean he truly loves you.
and if he truly loves you, nothing in the world is going to stop him from pushing the ring around your finger..
but if he doesn't, then nothing in the world is going to make him do it--no amount of dreaming and wishing and hoping or hugging and kissing and holding...
love finds its own way to the future without you having to try!
sidenote: i have a feeling that most guys around here are going to hate me for this post ;p
