I live to learn, and yet I’m still learning to live! I have recently entered my 30’s. I write about love, life and dating in this digital age while pulling knowledge from my background in communication, television and business. The title of this blog was inspired by the novel “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn, in which the main character, Amy Dunn adeptly describes the fictitious “cool girl” phenomenon that both men and women have helped perpetuate over time. Admittedly, I too have been guilty of such “cool girl” behavior, but now strive to be just me, like it or not, this is who I really am. 🙂
Thanks for reading, and please feel free to comment and share your own thoughts on these topics.
The “Cool Girl”, from Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl:
“Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
― Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl
