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!

@ARed, if you want to continue to have good skin, you need to drink water. You’re young and your skin is fine for now, but when the elasticity of your skin start to go downhill in your 40’s, you’ll know why! Drink the water and give your skin that jump start it needs!

DuShawn the scratching of the ballz I have become accustomed to. But the sniffing of the fingers? Can’t say I would take viewing that too well.

Most of my quirks have already been listed, but here they are nonetheless…

- I have to have my bedroom door closed and locked while I sleep even if I have male company.
- I don’t like to walk around barefoot; I have to have shoes or socks on.
- I always rinse my glass out before I pour liquid in it…and I don’t drink out of plastic cups (they hold scents).
- I too have to end my gas on a whole or half (25.00 or 25.50)…always
- I put everything back in its original place. It bothers me if I don’t.
- I use seperate towels for bathing and face washing.
- I sleep on the left side of my bed…never the middle or the right side.
- I too sleep with a fan all year round…only time I turn it off is if I can see my breath inside the house.
- I have to have a side item to eat a hamburger…I can’t eat a burger without fries or a salad…something.
- I too hold my breath when I walk passed most people in public.
- I will not drink in the bathroom…something about my drink being exposed to that space makes me nauseous.

I can’t chew just one piece of gum. I usually have at least two or three, but quite often if I have one, I will chew the whole pack in one sitting. Once it loses it’s flavor, I need another piece.

I’m not so sure about that, Leggs. So far, universal guy habits of scratch-n-sniff are about it. Seems to me that guys, in general, are not so picky about things that don’t really matter. Yall are some fussy chicks.

OCD would actually not be that which is all that fussy about meaningless details, but rather the aspect of being Obsessive about things, coupled with Compulsive, i.e. unable to leave those things alone. Not deciding to follow quirky preferences, but unable to stop messing with things. Doing them over and over, return to the house 5 times to ensure the coffee pot is turned off, etc.

So what are any odd quirks I’d have? Let’s see… I like to tell dumb jokes, the dumber the better. Yo mama so crazy she think paranoia is two things that irritate you. I need to work on that one, ebonics it up a little.

@abc…(if this is a repeat, I apologize, it did not show up when I sent it). I get this sneaking suspicion that most of us here are only revealing the “light weight” quirks. That the really scary ish has not been posted (maybe even me….nah I’m very normal) ;-) .

A quirk I have about my S.O. is the fact that his toilet looks like someone had an exploision in there…. The crap was scattered and I saw it and started crying. Haven’t been able to use his bathroom since but I still love him!

Okay ThirdWheel I went around with one eyebrow for a day and no one said anything….

you got the laugh for the day….

Raqi girl, floors and other places we sit our purses are just plain filthy. A hospital? Everything is growing in that environment. And to think it’s like the big bang thing going on up in there…just poof and something starts growing. I saw a special (I believe 20/20…or something) showing just how many germs are collected on the bottom of a purse. Seriously.

WiseD – you didn’t have to let the upgrade hijack my previous post. You wrong… now mumbling…and the blog betnot close on time either lol

Cee Actually, I think it was the response of “k” that made a man suspect…remember? Oh and I hope that virgin Shirley Temp has worn off…ya’ butchering one of my aliases —-> Lil Havana And yeah, that was too funny listening to all that raucous!…poor child. LOL And you know, another funny thing is when I am sometimes over to my cousins and she’s fussing at her kids, with the phone away from her mouth, then has the nerve to change her tone to this sexy n’ pleasant “hello” when she’s on the phone with someone of interest. LOL It’s hilarious!

My Cousin to her son: Bowwaay, if you don’t take my bra off yo’ heeaaaddd, i’mma…!!!

My Cousin to dude on the phone: (in her bedroom voice)…now where were we?…you coming over or what?

LMAO

Lurker Gurl, you do the gentle butt stroke too? Lol

Foots I admit, I’m guilty of asking my mother for things when she was either half sleep, or if I had to wake her up. So much better and more likely to get the “uh-huh” response, instead of the backhand! hahahaa!

Exacty, the right shade is the key!

Ok, you guys don’t like my popsickle joke?

@abc, if you think those are the only 2 universal quirky things that you men have in common, I bet you would be wrong! The topic isn’t about what’s picky, but what is quirky (which makes us who we are)!

I sleep on the left side of bed too..its not a quirk tho,its strategic positioning….im right handed and if i have to swing over at Queen, i have to swing over at her with my right hand,it has more strength.

And then there is a lil position that we like,she on her side looking to the east and away from me and me,behind her,my belly,nether and buttocks,engaged and on full press, with her right legg UP!

Try it!

This is the third time I have posted this…maybe it will get through.

@abc…when you commented on my food quirks, it made me realize that at least one of us (who may be sitting in front of my computer screen) only lists the “lightweight” weirds. If that is possibly true of the others, then we have some really serious stuff to think about here if this all is just the “small stuff” and the heavywight quirks we keep quiet about. ;-)

Lurker I get that and figured that is what you were going to say. So let me ask you this, do you wash your hands every time you handle your purse? Let’s say you grab your bag, put in on the seat of the car, then touch your steering wheel…

Do you sanitize all of that after touching your purse? Do ever sit your purse in your lap? How is that different from sitting it on the bed? Have you ever placed your hands on your lap in the same hour that you put your bag there?

(Disclaimer: I am not being a b!tch asking all of this and I hope you don’t take it that way, but you have truly piqued my interest here.)

In other news… Your boy swiss will be starting a new gig on Monday at a place that I actually like. (AT&T can officially suck on my white-chocolate salty balls.) Meantime… I get to spend some quality time with my old friend Jack! Blog drinks on me! :-)
