Tattoos, Cigarettes, & Shoes

I recently had dinner with a group of friends when the topic of dating came up.  One of the men mentioned how he was finding it hard to meet lady-like women.  I challenged him on this because I know plenty of lady-like women who are sophisticated and classy.  How is it that he manages to not to meet them in Atlanta?

He tells me that a lot of women have an image of sophistication but when you get a closer look, they have tattoos and they smoke, which apparently isn’t lady-like behavior at all.  I’m sure we all have our preferences in dating, but do you think judging a person by their tattoos and smoking habits is fair?

I think it goes deeper then judging a book by its cover.  One of the women at the table said that she actually checks out a man’s shoes. When I asked her what a person’s shoes says about them, she said that it lets you know how much they care about appearance. Now, what does that have to do with character? She never truly correlated the two, in my opinion.

I have said it before, but we have ridiculous reasons for ruling out a potential mate. Are tattoos, smoking, and shoes legitimate reasons to pass on someone? What is the most superficial, ridiculous reason you dumped someone? Have you changed your ways since then? Do you still rule people out because of something somewhat trivial?

@Melo – You got me thinking about Jason’ Lyrics. Especially the part when Jada’s friends says her guy was sucking on her breasts like he breast feeding.

IWLDLIKE2DATE: How bout that ride in. I guess that’s why they call it sin city. Ha ha ha. You guys might not know this but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack. But when my sister brought Doug home I knew he was one of my own. And my wolfpack, it grew by one. So there were two of us in the wolfpack. I was alone first in the pack and then Doug joined in later. And 6 months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys I thought, wait a second, could it be. And now I know for sure that I just added two guys to my wolfpack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together in Las Vegas looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast.

lmao…

Raindrops caress window panes
like lovers on a Tuesday morning.
The wind whispers sweet nothings
As the clouds become my footstool and my pillow.
I hold out my hand to the moon
And turn my face to the sun.
Embracing hope.
Counting wishes.
Seeking forever.

@Professor ~ I couldn’t let that statement go without a sample. SCool has some deep poetry going on and when someone comments that they too write poetry, I like to sample it. I already knew what I was going to get and that’s another reason why I asked. First thing you need to know when questioning witnesses in court…never ask a question you don’t know the answer to!
