You read books? Date me!

It’s funny how you may not be able to pinpoint the traits of someone you consider ideal, but you can definitely describe who is NOT ideal.  There is something to be said about knowing what you want and don’t want.  I think most people are reasonable about it, while others.. not so much.

We all have different things that “just does it” for us, whatever that means.  It’s interesting to think about why some things are complete turn offs while other things could draw you in.   It is also funny how one man’s/woman’s turn off can be another man’s/woman’s turn ON.

For instance, I always say that a man with an extensive vocabulary and book collection could make me swoon instantly.  Another woman would think he was a complete square, Herb, or nerd.  She would assume was dull and boring. I’m here for it. ALL day. Yes.

A guy who feels the need to constantly brag or boast of his looks, sexual prowess, or wealth just makes me twitch.  I become overwhelmed with the urge to roll my eyes.  I may even start to feels stabby if I am forced to be around him for too long.  Turned ALL the way OFF.  If you’re awesome, people can tell. No need to be your own hype man, dude.

What about you?  Have you ever noticed that your turn ons/offs are quirky or off the wall compared to other people?

Reio ~ The Blotter are recaps of crime in metro Atlanta. You can find The Blotter in Creative Loafing magazine. You can find the magazine at any neighborhood likka store, grocery store. The crime is just weird, but hysterical.

Reio – Creative Loafing is a newspaper here but they have a portion called The Blotter. And basically if features real, weird, funny, and crazy police reports. Google creative loafing atlanta and go the the News section, then click on the blotter…. ;-)

SlimNu ~ I buy very good irons and always have a backup on the shelf in case it should break. No black on the bottom of my iron, and I’ve been using this one for the past 4 years. I even bought an iron board that has a stand attached for the iron (lol).

leggs – speaking of ironing. lol. how come my aunt said her granddaughter asked her why she always put that “line” in her jeans. she was referring to the crease. I thought that was too funny.

button – I’m not even going to comment on barefeet. it’s too early to be playing with my blood pressure. lol.

I’m mesmerizing; can leap a building in a single bound; can run faster than the speed of sound; I’m rich because I sh!t diamonds; my flatulence smells like freshly laundered clothes; my very aura causes flowers to bloom in winter; I brought light to Alaska during it’s six months of darkness; my sweat is the cause of the Aurora Borealis; I clipped my toenails, and rubies formed in their place. Now disrobe, woman, and revel my scintillating radiance! lol

Ok seriously though…super smart, easy to get along with, and willing to do things. I love a woman like that.

leggs, sweatpants? sweet jeezum. that’s bad.
he actually tried to explain to me the difference between “folded” wrinkles and “worn” wrinkles.
apparently, stepping out in “folded” wrinkles is strictly prohibited.

disco, i think that’s when i began divorce proceedings from ironing. my daughter was probably in middle school when she asked me to please stop putting lines in her jeans. thing 2 was beside her nodding his head, so i figured wth, i’m quite happy to put an end to this particular chore.

button, no lie, i dated a dude with hyperhydrosis; feet and hands soft as a baby’s. but they were quite large. no complaints here. :wink:

I’m calling BS on that play, Button (lol). No way in heck am I putting on jeans air dryed. Those things are rough. I hang my jeans to dry then rub them together to soften them up before ironing. Ok, I know I’m weird….

Do you remember back in the day when jeans had the crease sewn in? Pure joy (lololol).

czB ~ please tell him I definitely understand the difference between folded wrinkles and worn wrinkles. Awww, someone who understands me (lol). Also, I ironed my jeans and blouse to change into at work before going to the baseball game the other day. I gingerly placed them in my bag all the while hoping they wouldn’t be too wrinkled when I pulled them out. I wanted to hang them up and carry them in, but I folded them and placed them in the bag. Angst I tell you, pure angst (lol).

I think causes of real attraction are somewhat intangible. I mean, I’m a sucker for long, dark, beautiful hair, so I could say that’s attractive; but it’s not enough to be all that. Just sayin.

Bragging may be unattractive on the surface, but don’t hide your light under a bushel.

All the jean creasers need to move to Cali, where that’s considered normal. They take pride in starching and ironing their jeans until they can “stand up on their own”. People really used to say that.

SlimNu – actually I’m not considering it to view the bodies. It’s more for the purpose of being in tuned with the way it used to be before the fall of man. To be free from having to put on clothes, clovering up what. Feeling ashamed of our bodies. To be more open minded and accepting of the different body shape.

back to turnoffs. I have to say mustaches don’t generally work for me. this morning, no lie, I saw a guy who had the whole curlie-Q thing going on with his mustache looking like dude on the Pringles can. then last week (at the likka sto – lol) this guy was trying to holler and he had a whole walrus looking mustache on his face. I was just like “ewww”. there’s no telling what all was trapped in his mustache.
