Do you know who NOT to date?

When we reach that age/stage in life that we should stop dating wholly inappropriate people, we (thankfully!) begin to figure out who is not good for you. It would be amazing and utterly convenient to have a running list of the “types” that everyone should generally avoid, right?

A reader sent me an article by a guy who listed the “types of women to avoid” and I found it equally tragic and hilarious.

Just for fun, let’s say we compose a list. What types would you put on it and why?

I would start mine with don’t date a record producer, aspiring rapper, or bartender. I have been down that road, trust me!

Let’s see what you come up with. Who knows? Maybe we can figure out if we are the type that others avoid. The more you know, people. The more you know.

I’ve beena way for a few minutes. If the BS calls are for the line about not considering the broken ones a failure, it is true. not saying I leave with a smile on my face like that dude in the commercials for the hard onnnn pills, but when I get time to reflect, I feel just fine. Plenty of ladies out there…plenty.

“No stiff upper lip as Leggs suggested.

That wld make u a bitter beyeotch and Undateable!” – That’s your crazy definition. Stiff upper lip means stay true to self, stay strong, don’t get sucked in….a slew of meanings, but bitter bi….. is not one of them.

Anybody male or female complaining about why that girl or that guy always goes for that type of person instead of them does so because they want someone that completely out of their league.

Fat won’t date fat no more
Skinny won’t date skinny no more
Ugly won’t date ugly no more
Broke won’t date broke no more
Dumb won’t date dumb no more

4 Real – Your 2;06, I agree.

4 Real, I don’t know if you saw my post a few days ago about Breaking Bad. I know I missed a lot of the 1st 2 seasons, so I’m kinda at a loss about something. What did Walter do to turn Gus against him?

Man, I love that show!

“And No,please,No stiff upper lip as Leggs suggested.

That wld make u a bitter beyeotch and Undateable!” – That’s your interpretation, Ex. Not at all what I meant or implied. Keeping a stiff upper lip means be strong, walk with confidence (no woe is me body language), etc.

Mmmm hmmm, I double checked my numbers from yesterday and on two reports it’s been increased by $240,000….hmmm mmmm

I hate we went green. Tight seats, new carpeting, conference rooms all over the floor, flat screens everywhere but now tight cubes, short walls and if you lift your eyebrow slightly you can see past the horizon. NO PRIVACY. And the now few offices are all glass…so everybody is looking at everybody all day. Supervisors and managers IN CUBES!!!

Just random stuff I can’t yell out loud

Ummm, I was thinking I don’t want it. I didn’t want to burst her bubbles. She’s a late bloomer. Or shall I say it better, she’s just not getting of the water where the box says “If you like Vera Wang’s Princess you love Frog Water” LOL I love her though :)

Kimmie: Jessie wanted to kill some of Gus’s major dealers because Jessie found out that they killed Jessie’s best friend. Gus told Jessie to leave it alone and Jessie agreed until those same dealers killed Jessie’s girlfriend’s 10 y.o. brother. BTW, the dealers made Jessie’s girlfriend’s lil brother kill Jessie’s best friend. Where was I… okay so after the dealers kill the lil boy Jessie decides to kill them but they knew Jessie was coming and surrounded him, up drives Walter running over and killing 3 of them and shooting the fourth guy. Gus finds out and Walter hides Jessie from Gus and tells Gus if he kills Jessie he will not cook for him anymore.

Whew!

You know, I could never get with Burberry. My sister that passed used to wear Fendi and it was sooo sweet that I would literally gag. Oh and she wore Sand and Sable so long that it would make me sick as well. Fendi, S&S and butter popcorn (while pregnant) are the scents that brought me to literally gagging or upchucking.

hi Celisea! i didn’t call him back last night after my shower. got busy with listening to some Creflo and waiting for my son to call me so i could pick him up from the girls volleyball game.

we keep in contact to see if we’re still crazy about each other. lol. he so silly!

I always welcome those little perks….I hope you like my recommendations.

I found Ulta to be a bit expensive. I went in there a couple of times looking for a particular perfume but I’d much rather to back to Macy’s or Belks

The only time i ever shopped in Ulta was because I was given a gift card. Too $$$$ for my pockets

Beautiful – (when skimming goes wrong) Okay, so I was skimming over the posts, got to yours and could’ve sworn you said, I didn’t call him back last night because I was getting busy, then watched some Creflo Dollar.

I’m thinking daaaaamn it must’ve been so good she felt guilty afterwards and needed some prayer. :lol: Did I mention i’m ready to go so bad I could cry? ;-)

Slim – I was just being straight with him, like a sister. All the whining weakness is just not attractive, especially in a man! If that ran him off, oh well. I just don’t buy that “all the ladies want is a thug” stuff. It’s always THEM and not ME!

Too pretty for my taste. Eye candy none the less :mrgreen: Although I was talking to a coworker in the elevator lobby and he came out a couple of times and finally asked if he could speak to what we were talking about. Was he listening for real?

Celisea… it’s been 5 years!!! we have this love/hate thang. do you remember when he couldn’t stand my butt in the beginning? hahahaha…. that was his fault though, cause if he wanted to date me when i was back in GA he should have said something. he said i should have made the first move. whatever.

i’mma get a text in a minute, cause you know somebody gonna run and tell what i’m postin’. lol.

one day we’ll meet, but i kinda like the mystery of it all.
