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 will not drink in the bathroom…something about my drink being exposed to that space makes me nauseous. Me too Deeva! I have a habit of leaving my water bottle right outside the restroom here at work – I can’t imagine taking it in there with me. Oh and I can’t walk around barefoot either – not even in my own house. It freaks me out when others walk around barefoot – especially if they make a quick run to the garage or something.

AmRed – I can chew the same piece of gum all day.

I’m a left side of the bed sleeper too…well I start out there – no telling where I’ll be when I wake up. OR I have to sleep on the side closest to the bathroom since I go during the night. When my friend and I travel, we don’t have to discuss who gets what bed, mine is the one closest to the bathroom.

Do you sanitize everything on your desk every morning after carrying your purse?

What is it about purses that have you worried?

Did something happen in your childhood?

Cee -

Mmmmm…butter pee-can rum cake!…or just butta pee-can ice cream drizzle with Tortugan Rum! Now that’s something reserved for two on those special ocassions.

Lurker – I hear you with the purse thing. I believe PoppaG broke it down awhile back with purses and toothbrushes, for that matter. I believe I saw a special on tv regarding that as well, mainly b/c a lot of women tend to place their purses on the floor…even the floor of the ladies’ restroom and something about the little misty, spritzy, gusty air particles from the the toilet…tend to land on her purse being the closest object to the toilet. I usually look for a hook or something on the back door and yes, happen to hold myself in the “squat” position. LOL And the other number, would just have to wait until I got home!…which I too, would have to be buck nakked as the day I was born and immediately showering thereafter.

I was once in a LT relationship with a man, who happened to LUVVV seeing me in that position (if ever the restroom could be used by both (male/female), I’d ask him to hold my things)…so that was one of his quirks, he was definitely aroused after that! But this was also the same man that could not take a dunk, without taking a few puffs of a newport cig or a cigar FIRST. Lol We got a real kick out of each other.

Thanks for the advice Lurker. I know I am selling my self short but it’s something about him that I can’t stay away from. I just adore him! I am trying to give this a chance and I am not waiting until something better comes along. Now I can’t speak for him on that point though but I would hope he is not doing the same….

Raqi…lol…okay going along with the therapy session….I simply laugh. I try my bestest to sanitize everything. I don’t sit my purse on the floor. I put it in my cabinet as soon as I get here. Nothing happened in my childhood. As a matter of fact, I was rather lazy as a child. My dad use to tell my mom, you need to make her work she thinks she’s above it…lol Everybody swore I would grow up lazy….soooo the opposite. I’m serious, sometimes if I touch say a doorknob, I purposely don’t wash to keep from being so obsessive but in the back of my mind that thing just lingers. I’ll break out the hand sanitizer in my purse….seriously. I’m getting better though.

Raqi is getting a little OCD with her Lurker questioning :lol:

Since the PwPs think they don’t have quirks – I’ll list my pet peeve as it relates to a male quirk – CHEWING ON STRAWS!!! I don’t understand why men do this but I see random men doing this quite often. It can be the big straw they got from McDonalds or the mini straw that comes in their Crown and Coke…Why is that???

Raqi

May 6th, 2009
4:20 pm

Lurker do you have a male companion? Let’s focus in on him for a minute. Do you sanitize him before you touch his hand? Knowing that there is a possibility that he touched his shoes while putting them on, do you consider that to be less dirty than the purse?

Not trying to come down hard on you but you stated that he said he didn’t want to be in a relationship. I mean I could see if the two of you hit a rough patch and both hanging in there until things possibly get better but usually girlie, when a man has a made up mind, you’re wasting your time putting forth any efforts to change them. You don’t want to become his side piece. I mean what if, just what if he found someone new but you’re still willing to provide perks…naturally he’ll still take until/unless the new becomes serious. What then? He’s going to have to do the inevitable. No?

Yes, I have a companion…he’s about as clean as me…not as compulsive. Annnd if something occurs that seemed less than sanitary, I go wash. Just like when I go to my parents, they don’t know it but after I sweep, I wash my hands. They keep the dust pan attached to the broom. Well all the trash lands in the dust pan and the dust pan is pretty much clamped to the broom. Once I handle the broom, I don’t say a word…I go wash my hands. No one knows. I keep an ample supply of paper towels at their house because I’m the one going through them.

Okay, okay that’s a start Lurker. Do you sanitize the purse after purchasing? ‘Cause lawd knows if you got at a Macy’s one day sale it got stomped, kicked, dragged and placed under someone arm.

Do you sanitize the bottle of sanitizer?

Clorox…me too….seriously. If I forget to get it while grocery shopping, it’s back to the store.

Oh and Raqi I love the fact that Publix have clorox wipes upon entering the store…you can wash the handle before shopping. Lol

Cee / Tazzee — Thanks! I’m psyched (and relieved)! The company is right up my ally — small, but stable, lots of youth, very casual, low BS-factor, and the in-house ping-pong & Wii room are a plus as well. Plus, the founder/CEO is on 2 of my tennis teams & is a very cool guy, so I’m thinking I’m in the right place. :-)

Melo — Who said anything about canceling the bachelor party?!?!? I thought you were working out the details of the Strokers outing? You’re not backing out on me, are you?

Thanks Lurker! I don’t plan on being his side piece since we don’t “do that” anyway. He said he didn’t want to be in a relationship because he was not ready and because he could be moving. I am trying to give him space so he can figure out what he wants. I am trying to stay postive :)

Cee – Ain’t that what I said? lol…but I’d prolly enjoy the ike-cream better, simply because, when cooking with rum, it looses its potency, whereas I have this recipe for Tortugan Rum Sauce to die for and I don’t have to worry about cooking the alcohol out of it. LOL …just give me a piece of cake and I’ll sop it around in the rum. I’m fine with that!…

…and since my post was lost, Slim…you’re not the only one, they call it grits n’ eggs for a reason! Lol…if found northerns to more of the cream of wheat and of course, southerns are usually okay with grits. Either one is fine with me. But I had to ask this one guy (from up north) why he insisted on sprinkling sugar in his grits, when he could just go to the store and buy himself a box of cream of wheat/rice!…now that’s quirky!

…A Cuban sammich and a cuban to me, if it’s not a little sloppy due to the pickles and ‘maters…and I love eating whole peppers (jalapeno or greek)…but if it does not make my nose run and make my eyes water, to me…it’s not that hot. Ever try eating something truly spicy like crab shulah and look cute at the same time? Not a good look, but funny as all get out! LOL

Raqi and trust me, he’s a pretty clean/clean cut dude. I have to be ready at all times…remember I mentioned the other weeking taking sitdowns the majority of the times. EVERYTHING about him is clean. After a flight in, he always goes home and clean up (quite well I might add), newly shaven and all before coming by. Only once did he come by coming in from the airport “as is” and that’s cause he missed me. He said I’m on 285 (around 10:00pm) what about me swinging by…that was a suite and tie, tired at the end of a business day day so there wasn’t a lot of loosening of the threads going on that night. Sitting in his lap and a few kisses was about the extent of it. Nope didn’t wash then…didn’t wanna…lol
