Bad Habits

All of us has quirky little things about us that are part of who we are. For the most part, they are pretty harmless and aren’t such a big deal. However, I believe some of us have some bad habits that may actually run potential partners away. How honest are we about them, though?

I’m quick to say that I love me and if another person can’t recognize all my wonderful goodness (flaws and all) then forget about them! Every now and then, though I have had to stop and think to myself. Is this yet another reason why I’m still single?

What are you bad habits that need to be dropped? I had one that I had no choice but to drop: dating men who had no clue how to be supportive or meet my needs emotionally. They were my bad habit! They were great on paper, ambitious and driven, yada yada. When it came to checking on me and caring about what I thought or felt, I was invisibile. That’s not a good feeling: Being in a couple and feeling alone.

Do you have a bad habit you are drawn to? Maybe there is something about your behavior that is turning people off? Do you have a bad habit of talking down about love and romance? Are you constantly negative about the opposite sex and have a bad habit of complaining about them to everyone you meet?

If we were to take a real honest assessment of some of our bad habits, what do you think we could find to improve? How can we drop them like a…well bad habit!

Page I don’t double dip unless it’s within a bowl with someone’s lips that has touched mine. I have a thing about eating or drinking behind people. I don’t do it. I can’t stand for someone to ask me to let them taste something or even to put their fork over in my plate. If you want to taste what’s on my plate I will slide a piece off onto yours.

A lady here at work made me a cupcake size cheesecake for my b-day one year and this guy that works here also loves cheesecake just as much as I do. We were sitting around the conference table eating lunch and he comes toward my cheesecake with his fork asking me if he could taste a piece. I nearly stabbed him in the back of the hand with my fork. I told him I would give him a piece onto a napkin. He asked me why I had a problem with him taking a piece with his fork because it’s not like he was asking to use my fork. I asked him “was that your tongue in my mouth last night? NO, then that’s why. Don’t put your fork on anything in my plate if these lips have never touched yours.”

Needless to say I ate my whole cheesecake by myself. LOL

If I have company & they wash their dishes, I rewash them to make sure they did a good job.. I tell company to leave their dishes, I’ll wash them so I don’t offend them :)

my bad habit is to not eat ur stuff if u cooking and i observe u arent as clean to my expectations.

Melo that’s why I always bring my lunch when we have lunch parties where everyone brings a dish.

When I coordinate the parties I will get with some of the people and tell who to bring what. If you are nasty and I know you are nasty, plastic and paperware will always be your contribution. Or maybe sodas.

My # 1 bad habit is choosing women (like mother) who need constant emotional support. It is very draining, a perfect prescription that kills ambitions, unfortunately this is deep in my subconscious mind.

Good Afternoon All,

I thought this was our own little bad habits. I guess the biggest one for me is I tune people out. I hear ya talking but if you are just rambling on or I find what the person saying uninteresting I tune out. Now on the flipside I hate when people don’t listen to me. And I will say..look I know you are not listening to me or pay attention. Oh and I overanalyze, I want all the details to make informed decisons.

I have a bad habit of holding my urine because I will not use restrooms at certain people houses or in certain public restrooms. When I say hold it I will hold it for a loooooong time. So long that one time I nearly peed my pants trying to unlock the door to get in my house to use the restroom.

lol at cashing your check at the check cash spot. a girl i used to work with had to go every 2 weeks to cash her check at the liquor store. omg they would charge a lot of money, but she couldn’t get a bank account so i guess she didn’t have a choice.

Lioness I don’t have a problem going at my friends and family’s houses. But if for some reason I find myself at your house for whatever reason and I walk into the bathroom it smells or there is toilet paper all over the floor or hanging from the trash or I have step over anything to get in there or there’s a black ring at the toilet, I’m holding it.

It’s the same with public restrooms. If they smell bad or there’s toilet paper all over the floor and toilets aren’t flushed and/or clean. Nope. I’m holding it.

Don’t treat me to the things of this world
I’m not that kind of girl
Your love is what I prefer, what I deserve
Is a man that makes me, then takes me
And delivers me to a destiny, to infinity and beyond
Pull me into your arms
Say I’m the one you own
If you don’t, you’ll be alone
And like a ghost I’ll be gone

It is amazing a dude wrote this song..

More Bad Habits…

I am an emotional shopper. I will go shopping when I am angry and then take it all or most of it back when I have calmed down and come to my senses. I learned the hard to way to be careful at those “No return on sale items” stores. I own a few things that I could really do without.

I tear the cards out of magazines while at looking at them at the doctor’s office or other people’s house.

I through food out the car windows. No paper, cans or cups but food. Anything biodegradable.

I change the radio station in other people’s car.

I sometimes wait until day 29 to pick up the clothes at the cleaners.

In honor of the topic today, and the fact that I am taking a day off tomorrow, I will not give in to any bad habits. To accomplish this, I will stay in bed until Saturday so I cannot give in to any bad habits. Oh wait, that would be a bad habit itself….ahhhh never mind, I’ll be busy cleaning up evidence of other bad habits.

” Ihave a habit (don’t know if its bad or not”, but if I go into someones washroom. I look in their medicine cabinet.
