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?

Getting pissed over here. I met this guy. We exchanged phone numbers. He has called me perhaps 1x. He texts me Good morning for the past 4 days, as well as Good night. Even during the day he sends little text messages asking what’s going on, how am I, etc. Two days of this with no response back from me. Just received a text asking why I’m not responding to any of his messages. Told him what I said in the beginning. I’m not going to carry on a conversation via text! Pick up the phone and actually carry on a conversation. DAMN!

Leggs – I’d give him a pink slip too. I always respond “the number was given so that you may CALL me.”

Besides, unless the “good morning” has my name specifically, I’m going to assume it’s a mass text. :)

I watched this episode of Entourage where Turtle meets this chick that is a “furry.” People who like to do it in animal costumes. In her case, a pink bunny costume for her and her dude. Furries refer to sex as “boinking.” I almost wet my pants laughing so hard.

Leggs – Early this morning they talked about the role of texting in dating on Q100. Bert said he talked to a 24 yr old female friend about how she felt about texting versus calling. She said she actually preferred texting in the beginning, so if she didn’t like the guy it was easier to let him down that way versus talking on the phone. Bert said women that go along with that line of thinking have set the bar too low and made it hard for all!

Yeah, we need to actually talk if you plan on things going anywhere!

And, BTW, I didn’t responde via text. Icalled him and relayed my msg to him! He told me I was “scolding” him. I don’t have time for this BS. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a grown man tell me I was scolding him!!!

Amazon, how do they do that?

Perhaps Staceye can explain better, Entourage is a sitcom so they are just going for comedic effect.

But it seems that there are cutouts for the areas that need it. :lol:

Sassy – Say it again! I have ZERO patience with that. My SO’s 5th grade son asked this little 5th grade girl to be his girlfriend a few weeks ago. (Granted they broke up 4 days later,but that’s not the point, lol). The point is, don’t bring me “he’s shy, give him a chance”! If a 5th grader can do it, a grown man can! Open you mouth and talk to a woman. If you’re too scared, go home to your mommy until you grow up!!!!

It’s the era of the “lazy dater.” Sad thing is, he’ll meet some chick that will eat that up and think it’s a sign he really cares… like Angie.

Ared – Good call because lawd knows I’ve had some diaper changes that really should’ve been carried out weating a CDC suit. Ewwww

For real right Kimmie?!

I really find it to be a turn off when trying to get to know someone…how the heyal you supposed to do that if you don’t talk. I’ve never understood “textversations” and they seem so impersonal…it’s either that or the person doesn’t think you’re worth a conversation. Either way, miss me with that ’cause if a man really wants to talk to a woman he will…trust mi p’on dat…seen?!

Purp – Yes a little school girl crush on Howard. I thought he was soooo cute!! And, yes squishing as I’ve been informed by Ared. It’s when HUGE HUGE HUGE women 300lbs and up lay, jump, sit, bounce up and down on top of little skinny men. For whatever reason the men like being engulfed in flesh. They actually pay for squishing sessions.
