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!

I check myself out in every mirror/reflection that I pass… Same here Le Siren.

Raqi I don’t wash my face while bathing either. I don’t wash my face first because when I’m in the bath, I sweat so by the time I finish my bath, my face will be sweaty and I need to wash it again. So the face gets washed AFTER I bathe and brush my teeth.

@Le Siren, the whole number gas was funny to me. I purposefully end mine on a crazy low number because I’m enrolled in “Keep The Change” w/BankAmerica. Stop at $12.06 and $.94 cents is placed in my savings account. Every little bit helps!

FootsI’m not sure why she does it, but I know folks that do it because they don’t like washing their face with the same washcloth they washed their azz with.

Raqi…that’s why

Raqi I guess I could use the cloth before bathing but never thought about it. Once I’m done bathing it’s off to brushing my teeth and washing my face. Probably just the drill now.

I dont wince when im peeing on the urinal,like i see some men do(i think those that do need a prostrate cancer check) :evil:

I dont shake my wang quickly and up and down after I pee to shake off the excess pee,like some do.Its illogical! That pee will litter my pants if i do… hmmmmm ;???:
I wash my hands after i pee or download.Seems obvious but u’ll be surprised at men that go in,pee ordownload and come out with a str8 face! No hand wash whatsover and nothing registering on that brain :twisted: :oops: (thanx Ared for that one)

Raqi I don’t know. I used to keep separate washcloths when I was younger, one for face and one for rest of the body. But then I realized that I didn’t really care like that. Unless I’ve just dropped bombs like Hiroshima.

Everything out of their mouth is the most important thing ever said.

Foots Kids have an exhalted sense of “liberal righeousness” <– (the best way i can put it). They feel their question/conversation is jus as important, if not more important as any conversation.

Maybe they are just lil talkers? What’s their age?

I think sister will come to grips and show “the look”, or say something “verbal lashing”, as a warning to kids of not be rude during a conversation. Not to say it won’t ever happen again (cause it will) but at least if she trains them they will know better.

@RandyT = YES!

Quite a few have said, including myself, that the face is the last part of the body washed (with a different washcloth). That’s when Mr. I’m Swiss came on saying he doesn’t use a washcloth.

(thanx Ared for that one)

melo – No thank YOU! I finally have some quirks to share!

I go thru great lenghts to avoid public restrooms. I can typically go a whole work day without having to use one. So when I get home it’s the first thing I do.

When I do have to use a public restroom I of course squat. If I do have to touch a toilet seat, at least 3 layers of sani-seats/toilet paper is on that rim, and in the bowl to prevent splashing.

I don’t like to cook in anyone’s kitchen but my own.

Often when I’m standing at home I’ll prop one leg up like a flamingo.

I don’t prefer doors closed in my house.

I stack papers rather than just file or throw them away.

“I even told myself if in an accident, I will surely break my leg. When I say that to myself is when I put my leg down.

Never thought of that :) . Maybe i should stop. Hmmm, but then if that leg is saved in the car accident because it was folded in the seat. One leg is better than none.

Yea (i’m reaching), that’s ^^^ my excuse to continue sitting on my leg, Leggs. :)

@Cemeeli…”folded in the seat?” I don’t drive sitting on my leg. I drive with my leg folded leaning against the car door and my foot touching my inner thigh. If in an accident, believe it will quickly snap!

Hey everybody…

Cee and Leggs – I do the same thing, driving barefoot, left leg propped up too, so don’t feel bad. Staceye – rode trips, I love em’…music blasting, and singing as loud as possible or to my daughters, and don’t get me started on putting my favorite jams on repeat!

Foots and Slim I can’t sleep with the closet doors open either…childhood thing, I guess. LOL Love dancing in the mirror naked or not and/or checkin’ myself out too.

Tazzee Kym and SxyCool …raising my hand, proudly… I do the panty check as well…just a habit really.

Lurker I wash my face with a seperate washcloth as well…one of those “just because” situations, Raqi ….but also because I read a person really should have about four…so I’m only short one! LOL

Which reminds me of the time I was running late and tried brushing my teeth before showering, while standing in the shower! OMG! I felt as if I fed my “Sockeye Salmon” a York peppermint patty!…so uncomfortable! I tried washing it like 3x’s!!!…I sat in a meeting at work that day feeling as if I had implanted a mini AC in my panties…but looking suspect like the woman on the preperation H commercials! Lmao

…let’s see, I don’t drink, eat anything blue…blue juice/punch?!! It gives your mouth and teeth the look of death…plus mentally, I think I’m drinking pool water.

I have a tendency to gently stroke my azz, when I get up from sitting too long or after taking off a nice fitting pair of jeans.

I talk to myself in the mirror, laugh at myself, answer myself…heyal…sometimes a whole dayum convo…my daughters are sometimes like…”Mommy, who were you….???…oh, you’re just talking to yourself again…” and snicker. lol

Cee now wondering…WTH??? :shock:

I like putting potato chips in my sandwiches (mom would not allow me to do this growing up), and I will only do it in the privacy of my own home…never in public, but I hate for my food to touch.

When I get mad I bite my bottom lip. When someone is lying, talking crazy and etc., I raise my right eyebrow. For some reason I can only do the number two at my house or at a hotel and I must take my pants off and read something even if it is just the Lysol can.

When I go to bed, the room must be cold, dark and quite.

…oh and if I find a really comfortable spot up against a wall or pilar, I have the tendency to shift myself to one side (usually my right hip) of my body, with one foot on top of the other.

…and Cee Gurl, you already know! Foots My daughters?!?! …they learned early on about that interrupting mess. I tell them, if “you ain’t on fiya, it is NOT an emergency to come interrupting me while I’m on the phone. You can sometimes hear them in the other room, contemplating if one should come speak to me on behalf of the others. Then they come to their senses. LOL I’ve had some folks say, “why don’t I hardly ever hear your girls?” …I’m like, “they’re not crazy!”

RandyT I’m with you hun, it’s no wonder we are!!! LOL We’re a bunch of loonies sometimes, huh? Lol…but at least WE understand one another…someone’s bound to appreciate it as well. hahahaa

If I attempted to fold myself into a pretzel, my limbs wouldn’t need to talk to me. First attempt of lifting my leg over my head would lead me to falling, suffering a concussion, then amensia! I’m not that limber, but I was at one point. Only one person in my lifetime asked if I could fold into a pretzel so I showed him.

Thanks for the compliment Melo!

I mix my grits and eggs up too, Slim ….whenever I have fried chicken (not often)…I must first squeeze the juice from the jalapeno pepper on it, and then put the whole dayum pepper in my mouth, with no chaser….and my theory is: If it does not make my nose run and I make me cry…it ain’t hot!” …btw, try lookin’ cute and decked out eating some spicy crab shulah…not cute, but a lot of fun! LOL

Leggs – no blue houses for me either…it just seems a bit gloomy to me.

Lurker – chile…you too?!…(regarding the sore azz)??? LOL And another thing, I totally agreed with your posts at the end of yesterday’s topic! Those parents are usually the first ones tombout, “not my child” …hmphf!

and WiseD – you had me cracking up at the “debil”…I thought I was the only one who jokingly pronounced it that way sometimes. Btw, this daggone new system??…if it does nothing else right (such as withholding posts and such)…one thing it’s on point with…and that’s shutting down on time! Usually I could slip a post under ya nose as long as I had two browsers open, so yesterday I let my computer have it for not being quick enough. LOL

Professor I roomed with my cousin in college and thank goodness we had our own bathrooms. She had to be completely naked if she did #2, and immediately afterwards, she would take a bath.

It’s funny about you reading something. I do the same thing, even with a Lysol can like you said.

Leggs My house is blue!! :lol: It looks like dollhouse though.

Cee/Jamoca The twins are 9 and the baby is 7. I think that sometimes my sister deliberately tries to not be like my mother. But it is extremely annoying to me when I’m trying to have a phone convo with her and she’s talking only to them. I just tell her to call me back when she gets in the tub. It’s the only time she has to herself when she gets home. Or I just talk to her at work.

You can sometimes hear them in the other room, contemplating if one should come speak to me on behalf of the others.

I know for sure that I did this as a child, especially with my grandmother. She believed in “children should be seen and not heard”, so sometimes, we’d just pass her notes.
