Dating: The Oh No, No List

Happy Friday! I am in great need of humor this week so I want to share this clip from NBC’s Parks and Recreation. It is funny…and kind of true!

The clip shows the character, Tom, talking about his Oh No, No list. If someone he is dating does anything on the list…it could result in an immediate breakup – harsh, but FUNNY.

Single people are notorious for having outrageous, ridiculous, – completely not based in reality, dating lists. We convince ourselves that some things just prove or disprove compatibility.

I can think of my top offenses to put on my Oh No, No lists but I will wait to read yours first. What quirky, totally unique things do you secretly judge dates on? Would you say Oh No, No to someone who hated jazz? Would it be an instant break up if they couldn’t use chopsticks?

Keep it light and fun. We can all act like “judgey jerks” at one time or another, may as well laugh about it!

I didn’t think the F me pumps were meant to be walked on. I thought they were meant to be hoisted proudly in the air…

That, too, Swiss. But unless you have a series of overhead pulleys and vines to get you where you want to be, you still have to get to the bed….. :lol:

Only you, swiss, only you.

There are some fierce CFMPs that could be worn outside the bedroom. Fion blasted me for always talking about CFMPs. I silently laughed because I figured he had no idea what CFMPs stood for.

I have a pair of shoes that has a zipper going up the heel and rhinestones across the toe area. I put those bad boys and sauntered over to the bed. So far all’s good. He loved the shoes. Those darn rhinestones tore my sheet up.

If you know you’re going to be cat crawling, make sure to put some extra lube on them knees. Hard to be cute in a nice pair of CFMP’s, and when you get up you have the ashy knees lol

Nope. That would mean we’d have to go into relationships and all that’s not done right, don’t go right, can’t get right…that sort of thing…lol We’re talking about stuff that’s stopped at the door, where because of such no relationship can ensue for male bashing

WD – I’m with Cel on this one. It’s not really much of a teaching thing as it is a progression of skills. As a young girl you start off with the church heel. The church heels are probably most of chicks first experience with a heel at all (well at least in my day). These days, little girls are coming out the gate with the wedge sandals, flip flops etc…Anyway, usually as you get older, you move up to higher heels and as far as the walk goes, it grows as the height of the shoe goes. As with everything, there are exceptions to the rule. Depending on background and life experiences some get thrown out there straight to the clear heels. :shock:

I can’t do heels…they kill my feet. I don’t know if it’s because I have a high arch and kind of wide front with narrow heel.

Cel/Slim- understood. I saw a lil girl no more than 10-11 in some heels in the grocery store the other day. My 10 year old looked at me and we both shook our head. Then her Mom came round the corner and I understood. I mean stripper straight outta central casting. 5 inch heels, skin tight jeans, tank-top, tatted up, yarn weave, popping gum. She was fine as all outdoors but still.

willie d – I’ve seen little girls as young as 4/5 in heels. one little girl at the county fair (yeah I went to the county fair) had on some cowboy boots with a nice sized heel. hate to say it being the grown woman that I am but the little girl was fly. those were some bad boots (as much as a 5 year old’s boots can be bad).

Bluzgirl – Practice practice practice. Buy yaself a pair and strut around the house or for you man…so when you hit concrete you’ll have your strut down just right. I dunno, it’s like heels enhances and sort of pushes your hips to sway.

Willie – SMH…I tell you what are we coming to? I saw a girl downstairs, must have brought her kids in and the little girl looked about 7ish and I literally looked because she had on boots, jeans tucked and the boots had a small hell. At seven, I was still in patent leather flats or some Sunday School shoes or mary jane shoes or some jeepers…lol

celisea – I hated patent leather mary jane style easter shoes with a passion. I repeat I HATED those shoes. I also hated little bobby socks with lace around the ankles. I think we talked on here once about little boys and their introduction to their first wallet. do any of you ladies remember what you carried in your first little pocketbooks?

If my recollection is on point, I’d say my first purse at 5ish for Easter.

dang leggs. not that you really remember. I’m sure my mother outfitted me with some little rinky dink girly girl purse (I wasn’t very girly girl in my childhood) but I sure as heck couldn’t tell you what was in it. my mother still to this day talks about how I would put a hurting on some leotards. she knew I was too rough to be wearing dresses and leotards to school. $1.56!!! that’s 156 pieces of penny candy.

@Cel…I’ve tried the heels and walked around at home, but they just hurt so bad. My feet are really cute, but I think I have an odd shape. There are a lot of flats that I can’t wear either. It takes me forever to find a good pair of shoes that don’t hurt my feet…

@disco ~ that’s why I said I was balling (lol). Penny candy, candly necklaces, licorce strings. My purse matched my dress (lol). Remember those.

I was a girly tomboy growing up. Loved climbing trees and fences. It was an art to scale a fence and beat the boys. Jumping fire hydrants until one caught me put an end to me doing that. Didn’t put on skirts or dresses until I left for college.

I remember thinking I was so “growny” carrying a purse, especially because it had lipstick (cherry chapstick, but it was pink and I thought it was lipstick), gum, and a change purse.

Little girls in heels…smh.
