Unpacking the Pretentious Woman

The pretentious girl, in this social world, making demands with your opulent skills. If you are a pretentious lady, woman or girl know that some men and women will not understand you. Others will find you intimidating or formidable. Intimidating or difficult is not your end game or general purpose. It may not be your approach.  Because others may not or will not understand you, it doesn’t mean you’re “too much”. In perspective, women for the most part tend to reconcile with other women. If your not demanding, surely there is a part of you longing to be towering. There is nothing wrong with operating a pretentious posture through a well mannered approach.

There Is Nothing Wrong With Making Demands

Ladies, being demanding is not the same as being fussy. Just don’t be fussy and think you are being demanding. It is okay to want respect and to remind the masses of your importance to a mission or situation.  It is even okay to express your stature. Nobody should be better at selling who you are than you.

Don’t Compromise Your Value

Pretentious lady, continue to value yourself and ensure other respect your value. If you believe the people you surround yourself with on daily bases will truly understand your posture of being demanding think again.  Every now and again you have to remind them who you are, so always know your value.

Your Pretentious Dopeness Will Catch Side Eyes

This dopeness is the urban dictionary meaning and not the Webster meaning. It is your outward display of qualities, self attributes and capacity that best describe you. You will have a class of women who think you are a little to brash. You know the saying ladies, you should be seen and not heard. There will be times when you need to be heard and your style and qualities won’t fit inside of traditional archetypes as a means of carrying out the message. Allow your skill, abilities and dopeness to lead the way. The side eyes will get over it.

Be Pretentiously Gracious

In your pretentious posture avoid being grumpy or grouchy. Embrace a gracious stance. Avoid appearing disgruntled or being labeled as snippy or short-tempered. You know what word comes to mind if you are appear cranky.  Gracious and pretentious can exist in the same space ladies. It adds ease to the high and mighty attitude that maybe projected. The act of being cavalier as a woman is still unbelievable to some women, so operate in your graciousness.

It is important that attitude is not the message that is projected when a pretentious woman decides to speak or act. The message should be a reminder of who you are, your value, skill, standout abilities and requirements. Allow your hallmark self to flourish.

They Make Us Love and Loathe Them

Where are all the prime time junkies out in the land of the living? The more urban word is telephile. Those that who have passionate interest in television. Yes, you do exist. I have proof across the different social media pages. I’ll proclaim that no one enjoys a better television show or prime time franchise more than me. Well, except for a couple of my friends. I love an alluring story line that is fiercely written and directed.  The kind that sucks you in and swallow you whole…and I like it! While some fans are charmed by actors, other fans take interest in the writers and directors of this body of work.  Telephile know who’s responsible for a masterpiece. Writers and directors are the core ingredient baked into a good script. Writers create the keys to the city and offer them over to the actors.

It’s Not Just about the Actors 

From the days of the first Law and Order, The O.C., One Tree Hill, Sex and the City, Pretty Little Liars and Lincoln Heights I was hooked on drama.  I find delectable viewing pleasure in well written and directed shows.  Ever so often a show comes along that’s worth turning the ringer off on the phone and inviting over friends, who share your same commitment to good television.  Hollywood has no shortage of writers, but a story lines coupled with robust storytelling is necessary.  Do you ever wonder what lurks in a writer’s head to be able to push out episodes after episodes of content that keeps us locked week after week. I do, and so do other fans of shows. There is proof on social media when a show is cancelled or seasons are cut short. You do not want to be the writer or director when rumors start emerging and fans latch to the rumors.

Fans Take their Shows with an Earnest Intent

I was debating rather to write this or wait until after final episode of The Originals will air August 1st.  I want to find the proper moment to write and express my thanks to the CW for the past nine years of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals franchise. While some in the fan base is not happy to see The Originals end but accept it, others tends to blame the writers, producers and directors. In the case of the The Originals, It’s been interesting reading comments on Facebook and Twitter. Many seem to believe that the writer and producer got bored with the show and decided to end it. I still believe ratings  drive the decision to cancel a show, but I’m still learning the industry.

What can I say about the TVD and The Originals franchise? Over the past nine years, I grew dedicated to the CW’s franchise and spin-offs of TVD and The Originals. I embedded these shows in to my daily lives. Prior to the move to Friday nights TVD was the filler in my Thursday nights.  To think that my favorite show(s) ended because the writer/producer got bored would be unforgivable. Poppycock, I don’t want to believe that it would be possible to rip something away from loyal fans.

A gaggle of fans believe this to be the case and they are behaving brutal on social media with comments expressing concern. Fans and are entitled to their opinions and this my friends, is an example of them holding writers and directors accountable. If there is more story to be told, then let another enthusiastic writer tell it. If it is truly about the good ole ratings, then let it to be known. My opinion is, if interest is lost don’t abruptly throw the show away, but ensure it is well crafted and planned ending. When the show fades to black or white, life goes on and a telephile or fan will always land on another show.
