When I’ve looked for a new place to rent in the past, if I made it to the stage of viewing the property and filling out an application I’ve always been lucky enough to also have it if I want it. There are plenty of places I’ve told of my interest and heard nothing back from but for the first time a place who did respond and invite us to a viewing have turned us away.
Oh well, we hadn’t quit the hunt and we’ve another place to see tomorrow. Wish us luck
A woman’s worst nightmare? That’s pretty easy. Novelist Margaret Atwood writes that when she asked a male friend why men feel threatened by women, he answered, “They are afraid women will laugh at them.” When she asked a group of women why they feel threatened by men, they said, “We’re afraid of being killed.”
This reminds me of a discussion we had in school, and one girl was talking about living in fear of her safety because she is a girl, and this guy chimed in and was all “It’s hard for guys too! I’m so awkward around girls! It’s embarrassing!” Yeah, not the same thing, exactly?
This reminds me of an article about online (heterosexual) dating that I read a while ago. It listed men’s and women’s worst fears about meeting someone from online. The highest ranked fear that men had was that their date would be fat, whereas the highest ranked fear that women had was that their date would turn out to be violent and kill them.
