City & State or ZIP

Which side are you on?

After I interviewed Abiola of the dating reality show, Tough Love, I made sure to watch the finale of the show to see how the dating boot camp would end. I think my favorite part of the show is when Steve Ward surprised the women with the “Cute or Crazy” game.

The audience was filled with men and Steve read off the list of quirky habits/facts about the women on the show. The guys then informed the ladies how they ranked: was it cute or crazy behavior! I’ve said it before, but women don’t always know how men perceive them and their behaviors. It was shocking to the women how something seemingly so innocent made the men think ca-ra-zy chick alert!

We all have those quirky things that makes us unique. Should we worry about concealing them though? What happens when we have some type of behavior that we think is cute and quirky- but in reality, it makes potential dates cringe, laugh, or seek out therapy for us!

If you are feeling brave, share your odd or quirky habits or quirkyness. Then the readers can respond with cute or crazy and let each other know if this should be revealed to dates sooner or later, much much later.

I think I have a few, ok more than a few but I will start with three:

I avoid men with odd shaped heads. I suppose it’s related to children and our potential to have egg-shaped heads. Who wants to give birth to a bowling ball headed kid?! (Cute or Crazy?)

I don’t trust men who refuse to eat anything exotic. Ok, let’s avoid the double entendre! If you hang out with me, you will get bored ordering bread and water while I sample cuisines of other countries. Live a little! (Cute or Crazy?)

If you don’t embrace technology or utilize it in any way, shape, or form, I consider you a caveman and secretly make fun of you with my friends. (Cute or Crazy?)

I can do this all day! I will add more, but why not weigh in with yours? Please be gentle with the commenters, we can all have opinions, but no need to rake each other over the coals!

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

Remember,most,if not all byiaatches have ample AZZ

And yes, ya fellow Omega man tried, tried and tried. From hooking up, to eating out to can I take you and your daughter to a concert (right), azz being the motivation. When his brief attempts to go from friends to getting down didn’t yield azz like he thought he backed up. Ya’lls image is seriously being misrepresented. Wonder what his boys would think if they knew, as smooth as he comes off and projects, he’s calling hanging up, getting caught on my voicemail at work, driving by my house (didn’t know my daughter would walk outside…and I left him out there), showing up at places where I am…..this one is just rich. Dogged out…not hardly. Not a good image for a que.

Good Afternoon folks!

This is a funny topic!

The ex’s I have dated had to have these quirks!

1. Sleep with door close and on the rightside of the bed!
2. Have sex in the morning!
3. Unplug all appliances except the stove and fridge.

I have to take a shower in the morning!
I luv to mix up food groups!
I put barbecue sauce or ketchup on everything!

I luv to cut grass! ( For Mo and Kym) :smile:

Actually, I think marriage might be a major contributor to the growth of a lady’s behind. I sure have seen a bunch of ladies whose azzes sure got bigger within a year of two of getting married ;-) . Strange…must be something in the water.

Hello -

Interesting & fun topic!

I hate dirty MIRRORS!!

I do not like water and “stuff” = (hair products, flat irons, perfume, ect) on my bathroom counter when I’m using. If it’s not clean enough I will clean my bathroom before I use it, and I don’t mind running late because of it. My bathroom is usually cleaner than my bedroom area, and closet.

I want my salad dressing on the side of my salad when I ordered it. If the server forgets somehow that I’ve said “Dressing on the side, please”. I definitely send it back.

After I mop, I spray my floors with scented Linen Water, or Simple Pleasures (by Dounty) on the floor. Love fresh floors.

If I ask for Hot Sauce, don’t give me Tabasco sauce, there is a difference. Thanks.

I dance when food is good.

Lastly, for those how have kids:

Do not wait until I am on the phone before you start asking me if you can do/have something! It was just you and I, along with DEAD silence for 2-3 hours and you didn’t ask me a darn thing THEN?!!!

That ^^^^ should have been at the top of my list.

Lioness That’s why it’s sooo funny when these dudes pop on here like they’re the be all when it comes to relationships. He would die his if circle of friends found out how he’s simping. His circle of ho-ish boys would be even more appalled. When I wouldn’t answer my phone once, he started texting from his boy’s phones. I tell ya….the things that wanting azz will make a man do…lol. I don’t have the heart to tell him I know it’s him. Funny too how I can say something to him about his character and as hard as he tries to come off, it so hits below the belt. I don’t mean malicious but truthful stuff. Told him this is his first experience with a sista that will get brash with him.

So talking while she was on the phone was a given – WAIT til she was done.

Cee My sister’s kids are like that. And my sister KNOWS that we were not raised to be interrupting grown folks conversations like that. So since she apparently won’t teach her kids the same thing, whenever I see them do it, I say in my Tee-Tee (my form of Auntie) voice: Y’all stop bothering ya mama while she on the phone. Y’all see she talking bout grown folks business!!

My question for her is, why the heck do you let them do that?!? I could see if it was something important, but mostly, they just want to interrupt because nobody is talking to them. They end up wanting to tell you about that time they wore a certain dress when they were 4, or something like that.

I have to sleep with a ceiling fan on all year round. If not its gotta be cold so I can bundle up.

I can sleep dam near anywhere. Leave me alone for to long and you lose me.

All my clothes are hung by color in my closet. Pants on the lower rack and shirts on the higher rack. Suits and linen go on their own rack but all clothes start from light and get darker.

I still fold my socks the way I learned in the military.

All workout t shirts are rolled while t-shirts I wear under my clothes are folded. Always.

I never wear a shirt without a tshirt. it feels so nasty under the arms.

All shoes must match the belt. Always. It just feels wrong not to match. Also, socks must match the shoes and belt.

I have a sock fetish. I have about 40 pairs of dress socks and 20 white socks. Also, I could never wear black athletic socks.

Last one, I hate sleeping on sheets. I cover up on top of my comforter so if I get hot I can get out. I’ve slept on sheets maybe 6 times in the last 5 years. yes, if you spend the night you sleep on the sheets and i sleep on top of the comforter. LOL

Lioness – You are right it is the rudest.

I have two more –

I drive with my shoes off, and sometimes one foot is propped up in my driver seat (under my thighs). Unless i have a dress on.

I won’t cook on dirty stoves or grills.

I was a someone home and clean thier grill before. (A friend of a friend’s home). It was used once, they said. I don’t care, it’s looked used. And you cain’t be serving fresh grill meat to folks, when you’ve cooked it over kibbles and bits from the last time it was used.

Nah boo, that’s okay.

I can’t sleep with my feet hanging off the bed…goes back to a childhood fear of a monster being under my bed:)

When I pump gas, it has to end on a whole number ie. 25.00 NOT 25.06…that really irks me, but I’m working on it!

I check myself out in every mirror/reflection that I pass…

If I’m on a date, I always brush my teeth in the ladies room before we leave the restaurant…

@Tazzee I do the panty-cooch check.

Since the age of 12 if I take a bath I masturbate(I blame Judy Blume for this one)

I can’t sleep with my bedroom door open not even for a nap.

And I was not trying to cause a controversy on the butt thang. I have sought of a wide bottom but one butt check is bigger than the other.

Cee That’s the thing. She would NEVER give them the same look we got growing up. Everything out of their mouth is the most important thing ever said. They are normally very respectful children, but if they feel ignored for a minute, they will buck up.

It’s irritating now, but just imagine 15 years from now when somebody has to work with them or date them. I wish she would teach them NOW!

No work shoe feels comfortable to me other than a Bostonian.If the pait i have gets old, i go get another pair.
