What uppppp party peopleeeeee! Ok ok sorry... I'm just a LITTLE excited. Why? Because it's been like over a month since I've written and I'm finally back! Where have I been, you might ask? Well I haven't written in a while for a few reasons. One of which being that things have just been going really really well for me and I've been so busy with life that I haven't had the time (or anything to complain about) :). I also have had some ideas floating around in my brain to write about, but nothing that I felt passionate enough about to put on the internet and I didn't want to force anything just for the sake of making a post. So, here we are! But I'm back and I'm READY to PARRRRTAYYYYYYYY
So, my little petunias, we are gathered here today to discuss The Chameleon Effect. Yes, that's right, I said CHAMELEON. What is the Chameleon effect, you might ask? Well I'm pretty sure there's some scientific meaning behind it but for the sake of today's post, it refers to someone who takes on the traits/characteristics/hobbies etc of someone they have been spending time with. In this case, I'm referring to guys or girls who start dating someone and become exactly like them.
We all know these types of people so don't act like you don't. Hell, chances are you've probably dated one... I know I have. A few, actually. Honestly, we're probably all a little bit guilty of being chameleons ourselves at one point. But why?It's so crazy to me how sometimes when you date someone, you lose your individuality a little bit. You kind of forget who you were before them. Your life revolves around them and things that you like to do together, so the things you once enjoyed on your own are soon a distant memory. On the other side of it, it can be extremely annoying when you date a chameleon. I dated one once, and suddenly all the music I liked, all the activities and movies I loved were his "favorite". I drew the line when he started becoming obsessed with Taylor Swift. SHE'S MINE, OK?!
It's also extremely interesting to see such things from an outside perspective. When someone you know begins dating someone new and you notice that they start dressing differently, acting differently and becoming interested in different things. It's wild to see someone go from dating you and being into running and country music and wine to dating someone new and suddenly doing Crossfit and going on tropical vacations. It's almost like you don't really ever know who someone is because they could just be a combination product of all of the people they have ever dated or been friends with. Whoaaaa that's deep stuff bro. Anyway, the moral of the story is just be yourselves kids! Don't start dressing like a ghetto fab princess just because you start dating a papi chulo, know what I'm sayin'? Yea? Ok, great. Now get back out there and keep doing you babes. Rock on with your bad self.
