LONG WAY FROM, LONG TIME SINCE: A letter to the Brontës and Thomas Hardy

by Yi Shun Lai

 

excerpt:

"Someone could end up taking it the wrong way. Some poor girl might end up going in search of a Cro-Magnon brow, mistaking it for the only acceptable mark of manliness. She will discard healthy men with happy dispositions (who might have weaker noses or brows), and instead pine after a dark, brooding countenance and a snarl, which she will mistake for romantic expression.

Why, another poor girl might even aspire to find a man with secrets, and mistake those secrets for a puzzle to be solved. She‘ll hunt for men who say, with alarming regularity, “I don’t want to talk about it,” and she’ll misperceive these men as “interesting,” “dark,” “satirical” types.

Still another girl will save herself for a men who “thrill” her, who ignite “passion” and “chemistry,” and she will overlook danger and basic matters of compatibility to be with these passionate, chemical men."

 

A fun read. :)
