An excerpt from The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod
I need a dude to have real brains, not a routine. I like lots of personality to interest me in even a first date, much less getting me aroused to start with the stripping. Does that make me sound like I think I’m all that? I cannot deny I’ve been called conceited, arrogant, and definitely too picky – by both sexes. I’ve been told I am cold, cruel, and frigid, although never all three at once.
Those type of comments only make me smile and shake my head.
Here’s the deal, conceited me simply can’t imagine deserving anything less than what I want in a man. Why it’s considered arrogant because I have some self-respect and standards is beyond me. The picky part, I can’t help it if dudes with brains and a personality aren’t plentiful. I would love to find men so described under every rock. I’m sure were that to be the case, women would leave no stone unturned across the globe. If any men have had reasons to think I am frigid or cold, they were one hundred and fifty percent accurate. If knowing my own mind, speaking up, or saying no is perceived as cruel by those on the other end of the stick, I’m okay with being cruel.
Except for one awful aberration in my late teens, I have been unapologetically playing the field, staying single, and loving it. Guys chase as they will, but never catch me for long. I didn’t want to be caught at twenty, and I don’t want to be caught now.
