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!

Amazon I hate when I get the fresh out the grease fries at McDonalds. Give me the ones that have drained and cooled off a bit!

REALLY!! I will burn the roof of my mouth everytime trying to eat the hottest food POSSIBLE!

Speaking of food, that reminds me:

Since I had braces in my mid-20s, I got used to not biting into things like corn on the cob and ribs. I can bite corn now, but it’s irritating. I still have to pull the meat off the bone when I eat ribs though.

And another weird thing, I like to keep my shoes in their boxes.

If I had to clean shrimp to cook, I won’t eat them..

I never liked avocados cause they taste like water.

@Cemeeli, yes, I do. Never had any hair up there. That was the first thing I looked for when my daughter was born. Wasn’t concerned about the toes and fingers. Needed to see if she had eyebrows. :lol:

Foots – I’m the same way. I’ve never liked ribs tho, so I don’t eat em. I also still prefer to use a straw when I drink beverages.

I hate avacados too.

I hate drinking water because it has no flavor and therefore I don’t see the point.

I only shave my legs to the knee. You don’t notice the hair on my thighs so I don’t bother it.

okay this topic has me thinking of all the quirky stuff I do:

I like for my SO to rub my butt when Im falling asleep

I like on metallic nail polishes and lip glosses, no mattes

I abhor ashiness so I keep lotion/baby oil/cocoa butter everywhere!!

The word IRREGARDLESS…..need I say more…this is just WRONG

One more…I will not use stirrers (except at Chicfila) or any other open plasticware for that matter….straws only since they come wrapped.

We had this guy that would take a spoon every morning and stir his coffee (the cup he used daily…not a fresh disposable cup…that his mouth was on…not know what he did with his mouth) and put the spoon back with the clean one. I almost went into cardiac arrest on that one. I politely asked him to refrain.

Not a surprise that only chicks are posting their weirdnessess, except Melo, who we all know is nuts anyway, DuShawn, who says he likes to do what every man does, i.e. scratch his ballz (why? Because they’re there.), Randyt, who thinks it’s about what food he likes to eat, and Truth, not exactly a barometer of open-mindedness.

Me, I think all yall are about half crazy, and the other half are apparently OCD!

Leggs Do you have some sort of condition that your void of eyebrows. A former coworker didn’t have brows nor lashes. The brows were penciled in but the eyelids bare as a butt. It took us forever to figure out what was different on her face. Maybe the penciling in threw us off. I know had she not penciled in the brows we would have caught that lickety split.

Thanks Foots! Very, very nice!

@Cemeeli, no I don’t. Black is too dark. I use Ruby Kisses Blk/Brn eyeliner. I like it and buy 5-6 at a time so as not to ever run out. One stays in my desk draw, my purse and car. I was talking with a friend here at work and noticed she kept looking at my eyebrows. I already knew what the problem was. I rubbed some of the pencil off right in the middle so I was looking like those teenagers that cut some of their eye brow off. Not a good look on me!

@ARed, I have never shaved my legs a day in my life. Also, although water is tasteless, its excellent for your skin.

I know. I have nice skin and folks are shocked by how much soda I drink and no water.

They key is keeping stress out of my life, cuz it surely isn’t the water. I only drink it when I start to feel sluggish (my kidneys feel it) so I drink up for a few days til I feel better. :lol:

Nope, A person smart enough will expose those quirks in due time.

And to your three quirks: Would you like a straight jacket now?

Mine would be:
* Neighbors letting there dogs crap in my yard.
* Chicks that wear way too much make up (You look like clowns, what are you hiding under there?)
* Neighbors that throw there trash into my yard (I re-bag it and leave it on your door step, same with dog poop)
* People announce their business at restaurants or in public (like I really care)
* People who ease drop on my conversations, and think they should add there two cents. (It’s called mind your own (metaphor) business)
* Solicitors

abc I don’t think I read any real cases of OCD on here today.

My sister has a terrible case of it. Seeing her is what brought me to the knowledge that I don’t have OCD, just preferred cleaning habits.

My sister alphabetizes everything from her canned goods to her beauty products to the medicine in her cabinets. She measures the length of the spread on the bed all the way around so it is perfect on every side. She had the fuse removed that controls the seat in her car so when she gets her car washed they cannot move the seat. She boils eggs exactly 30 minutes not one second more or less. That’s real OCD.

I don’t like my food touching.

I eat all my food before drinking anything.

I rub the back of my ear and then smell my fanga.

Cleaning my ear with a hairpin relaxes me.

I like to start arguments with complete stranger about the stupidiest thangs I can thing of.

I like for people to think I’m stupid but I can stand stupid people.

I like to be the next person in a line then let someone cut in front of me. Why because I’m still next.

FOOTS.. girl I can not stand kids that interuppt adults when they are talking. I blame the parents because the allow this. And I get so tempted you say something…I try to avoid annoying kids and parents who do not discipline them because they will cause me to snap. I know my mami taught me to only do that if it is an emergency…and I had better say excuse me Mami. I learned what was an emergency and what was not. But you have to start when they are like 2 & 3…don’t wait until they are 7 and then decide to try to break the habit. I do not babysit kids over the age of 1. Infants are so much more plesant. :lol:

JAMOCHA…girl I will sing forever on my rode trips. I remember repeating my 80’s Rock CD over and over and singing the Pat Benatar songs. Oh I was jammin’!

@lurker…no condition that I know about. People would look at my picturs when I was teenager and say “something is missing” but don’t know what it is. I always laugh because I have no eyebrows. When I point it out everyone says “yeah, that’s it!”

BTW, abc, I think mostly women posted their weirdness, as you say, is because we saw this as a fun topic and not afraid to show what is unique about all of us. You guys lurk, and then when you come on, you’re negative.
