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!

good morning. slim – not that you called diva out. button – not that you said missing fingers. y’all are already cutting up. a friend of mine recently went out for the first time with a guy she met on the internet. she said she would have been willing to overlook one of his two issues but she couldn’t cope with both of them together. the issues? he had scattered teeth AND a lazy eye. I laughed so hard when she was telling me about the encounter.

Button and Celisea…Y’all are all over guys that may have had unfortunate accidents in their life with the “uneven legs” and “big heel” comments. I was in a car accident 30 years ago and had a badly broken leg that didn’t heal correctly. The leg is now shorter han the other and I have to wear a lift on my shoe. Have a little sympathy for people that have had unfortunate accidents. I’m sure y’all are perfect though.

well to keep thing interesting here’s a blog challenge – review the No No’s listed and own up to if you are any of them. I’ll go first.

missing teeth – had two wisdoms removed but I’m guessing that doesn’t count since they are in the back. I’m guessing we mean teeth missing right up front.

I will own rude. not that I think I’m rude but I’m a bit outspoken and abrasive which some might translate as rude.

Good day…

My Oh No, No list is pretty simple but my top 3 are:

1. If a woman is dressing out of season (Sun dresses in the fall, boots in the summer, I just cant do it!)

2. Chipped fingernail or toe nail polish…I am sorry but I think this may be the grossest thing ever!
3. If she is to loud in public places…I can just feel the eyes peering on us!

dude – I went out with a guy that had a childhood issue that resulted in his legs not developing properly. one was visibly thinner than the other. I could ignore it when he wore pants but I found myself attempting to discourage him from wearing shorts. he wasn’t trying to hear it though. I thought that deformed leg looked just that – deformed. it didn’t make him any less of a man and it didn’t change my overall general opinion of him. I just wasn’t going to front like the leg wasn’t an issue to me.

Mike P – I’m with you on the mixed season attire. I cannot stand boots and short sleeved shirts or winter clothes and summer shoes. I’m a police on that kind of stuff. I mean I get people sometimes wear what they have but don’t go mixing the seasons. Earlier this week there was a chick in the cafe that swore she was it and her man…lol He was buying her breakfast probably for a GOOOOD night the night before cause he was looking at her like she was scrumptous…lol Gon’ head buddy!

She had on a red sweater, white tee w/red writing, white jeans so tight if she leaned they’d pop, red belt and red boots…hot dang!!! And her “baby hair” slicked down. Buddy was proud of her. I ain’t knocking ‘em either.

Call bs all you want Celisea…The leg wasn’t reset because I had a spinal cord injury that was of greater concern than my leg was at the time. The leg was just put in traction and unfortunately the femur ended up shorter. And this is my first time to comment so it must have been a different Dude that said he was never coming back. I just picked that name.

disco – Where I came from they weren’t exempt either. I don’t think anyone though was trying to clown on the misfortunate. But the topic is asking about no nos and that’s a no no for me. Funny folks was clowing yesterday evening and I didn’t hear no complaints it was all giggles and laughs.

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:

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.
