Fall for your type

It can be daunting trying to figure out why we are always drawn to a certain type of person. Honestly, sometimes it feels like one of life’s great mysteries, with no rhyme or reason to it.

Attraction has a way of making us forget that we have met and dated a certain type before..even when it ended badly. I’m guilty of having relationship amnesia and I end up right back in the same predicament. It’s an awful deja vu moment to think that you have chosen the wrong type of person to invest time in.

Do you have a type that you always seem drawn to? Do you ever wonder why?

This is why I am such a big fan of going against type and leaving your comfort zone in dating. I have had good experiences when I give it a try! If you were to date someone totally opposite of who you usually are drawn to, what do you think would happen?

Looking back down memory lane, I’ve noticed that I’ve been drawn to lightskinned, bald men that look like a lightbulb…moust steer clear of those going forward (LOL).

I’ve noticed that I really don’t have a pattern as far as light or dark. I’ve run the spectrum.

However, I’d say I’d prefer brown skinned like me…but I rarely get that. Either he’s lighter or darker.

I haven’t done the interracial thing…so I guess brothas are my type. :lol:

Funk & Wagnall’s wouldn’t have YOUR definition of big. Is a size 12 big to you? Is a size 18 too big for you? I believe that’s what PR is asking. He’s not interested in F&W’s or even Webster’s definition.

Purp – I don’t have anything against interracial dating. I just haven’t met anyone of a different race, YET, that i’ve been attracted to enough to date. My girlfriend and i have discussed this once…i dunno if I could deal with being able to see the map of veins and stuff on his wacker. lol Plus, please tell me…is if…um…PINK? :???:

But on that note when I have been “eye close” to women of different ethnic groups there are differences in the pinks. LOL
