Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Katrina's Thought Bubbles: Jerk Lines Alert

This is for all the jerks! Source: Natalie Dee

The boys from Boys Night Out of Magic 89.9 talked about the famous jerk lines used by most couples in their show last night, and they even trended it on Twitter Philippines (Here is the link of the thread, if you want to get a dose of all those witty and funny remarks from the Twitter World). I love it, because it became a sort of "public announcement" (as Sam YG says it) to all the victims out there. On that note, I'm listing the top 5 (in no particular order) jerk lines I've encountered so far. Tell me if you've also heard of them before.

"It's not you, it's me."

This is the worst and most battered line of all, and only jerks say this. I can't believe people use this big lie. I know this sounds corny but if you really don't want the person anymore, better say the whole truth even if it hurts. Don't make him/her solve the puzzle alone. Admit the true reason why you don't want to hang in the relationship anymore. That way you save yourself from being tagged as a selfish and manipulative bastard.

"I don't want commitment. I don't want to be attached."

I'm not convinced with people saying this stuff. I mean, what good will they get if they play cold shoulder on love? I think they only say this to hide their mushy emotions and to come off as independent and strong-willed, when they're actually not. I'm sorry, but I'm totally not buying the No-Strings-Attached and Friends-With-Benefits peg you're trying to pull off. I'm sure you can't keep your feelings in check as time passes by.

"Let's have a cool off, but please don't go."

Cooling off is giving each other space in a relationship. It's the period when partners decide to avoid extended contact. It's like an unofficial breakup, so to speak. If you're smart enough, you don't ever fall for this trap. If they need space, set them free right away and grant them the unlimited space they crave for! Don't let yourself be just his/her option. Spending some time apart while having problems won't do any good to a couple.

"I won't make you cry."

Ows? Di nga. I've heard of this a lot of times, and it just makes me laugh. I'm so amused with the power of this line that sort of hypnotizes men in general. Why is it that every man tend to say this all the time? Do they know what this statement even mean? It's impossible not to make a girl cry, because we're born to let out all our hurt feelings through that act. If you want to make us feel better, you can say something practical instead.

"Let's forget about this and start all over again, shall we?"

I really think starting over easily doesn't apply to a certain mistake that almost tore your heart open. There's no way one can forget something that shattered his/her world and being that instant just by hearing that stupid line. Don't be a jerk by assuring your partner something like nothing even happened. You can't just say that, and get the forgiveness you want right away. Winning something back takes time, effort and genuineness.

That's it, folks. Do they sound familiar to you? Have you heard of them or have you ever used them at some point?  I guess we don't see our patterns, until they're laid out in front of us. I just aired out a portion of those dirty laundry and after that, I hope we stop being a jerk. How about you, do you have something to share about jerk lines as well? Let me know. I'm stoked to know your thoughts about this subject.

you pretty much got it all listed.

while #3 is really pathetic, #4 sounds the lamest of all.

but I kinda like the sound of #5. Sometimes, at very rare occasions, it's actually sincere.

Adam said...

Yeah #4 is pretty lame, and any guy who uses this line (I'm a bit guilty) is either full of it, or optimistic. Very optimistic

hello dear <3 you're so right, I don't come here enough :c unfortunately I've been sick for a week now and I only had come to my computer to check my emails and deal with my blog related stuff x.x I remember I said I would have more time when christmas arrived, right? but no, it was awful, I had all my work TRIPLED ;_; seems like my college uses holidays to make us do our projects, so when the new year starts, teachers begging with the students evaluations and oral presentations.

Now enough with my complainings, i read your post and i totally relate to it. I don't date much, you know. I kinda have a 'trauma' when it comes to relationships xD i'm not the kind of girl of falls easily in love, sometimes it takes years for me to find someone interesting that makes me feel happy and unique. But when that happenes it's really intense for me, and that might get explain why I'm so emotional, even if i don't show it much in public.
Unfortunately i found boys a little too immature for me, they make promises in vain. Sometimes they don't even understand what they are promising, which just makes it sadder. Sometimes some of them they can be good-hearted, you know, because they really believe they will try their best not to see their beloved cry, which obviously doesnt mean she won't anyway.

About the forgiving part, i think knowing how to forgive is a gift, not everybody can do it. I've seen people pretending to forgive, and they just keep stuck on that one thing that happened to the past and they just obligate the other person to compensate forever for a mistake. But there's also the other part, some people are just not worthy of your forgiveness. They will only repeat their mistakes all over again because they see a good person in you who's always there for what's worse. We should be very careful because every case is different and deserves a particular treatment ^^
But it's just like I've always said, forgive not forget :)

Love * Monstros no Armário
