1. When you meet someone for the first time, how soon do you decide if you like them or not?

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates?

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you?

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker?

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special?

1. When you meet someone for the first time, how soon do you decide if you like them or not?
I decide right away, but my opinion of them often changes, going from hate to love and vice versa.

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates?
I get frustrated easily and I don't deal well with stress.

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you?
a class of eigth grade Germans baught me a German flag and wrote all their names on it.

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker?
Interupting me often or ignoring what I say.

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special?
do their laundry

1. When you meet someone for the first time, how soon do you decide if you like them or not? I usually like most people at the beginning. I'm an optimist. Romantically it really depends.

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates? I can be an interrupter. I have to watch that.

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you? It wasn't a boyfriend, but one of my good friends took her spare key and swapped out my old VCR for a DVD/VCR combo as a Christmas suprise. She knows I don't get many suprises for Christmas since my mom passed so it meant alot.

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker? Romantically - smoking. My mom died of lung cancer. Not willing to go there again.

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special? Either cooking or finding a really cool book that is perfect for them.

Usually, if I am going to change my mind, it happens within 1/2 hour of speaking to them. Romantically, not for awhile, as I try to be sure that its not just good scenery.

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates? I don't take enough things in life seriously

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you? Cutest? No clue. My girlfriend does a damn good job of getting me exactly what I want for holidays though

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker? Smoking cigarettes. Smell gross, bad for you, and you don't get much of a feeling from them. I know a few smokers who died of cancer as well. I am fine with cigars, shisha, and grass as long as it isn't excessive. Sure its a bit hypocritical, but I feel that way.

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special? Usually get them a small gift for no reason

I cannot think of any good questions [Frown]

1. When you meet someone for the first time, how soon do you decide if you like them or not?
Just like their personality, or like them romantically? Well, for the former, all it would take is for them to seem sincere, interested in what I have to say and interesting to listen to. For the latter, these qualities would have to have confidence and warmth attached to them... but most of the time I don't end up liking someone until I've known them for a bit.

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates?
I sing a lot... quietly, almost everywhere. Or I whistle. I think this bugs some people. I also have a habit of putting an empty mug on my head when I have finished my tea, and sitting that way for a few hours if I'm reading or watching TV. Yes, I know, freakish [Razz] .

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you?
This isn't the cutest thing that has ever been done for me (that's not a story I will be telling here), but it's still pretty damned cute. I was depressed to the point of tears because the guy I'm 'in love'* with hadn't been in touch with me for ages, and I couldn't concentrate on anything - I thought he hated me after a little fight we had. My housemate tried to cheer me up, to no avail. She left the house to go shopping as I sniffed in my room. While she was out, the guy in question called, came by to pick me up, and he and I then spent the rest of the day and night together. The next morning, when I got home, I found a pair of socks on my bed, bright blue and pink, with a picture of a sad looking Eeyore holding roses on them. My housemate had bought them to cheer me up, but I was gone before she could give them to me. Bless her, it's for things like that that I love her.

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker?
Poor hygiene. If he doesn't wash, it can't continue.

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special?
Cute, stupid gestures that are probably ill-advised. Like sticking notes to their mirror in backwards handwriting saying "Thank you for letting me sleep over!" or sending pictures of funny looking animals to their work e-mail address to cheer them up during the day. Or trying to cook for them. If I try to cook you something, I'm practically in love with you already [Razz] .

*Everyone else says such unhealthy obsession can only be love... but who knows, really.

1. When you meet someone for the first time, how soon do you decide if you like them or not?

Usually too soon. I am not wrong that often, but sometimes I am.

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates?

Incessant joking. Either that or the fact that I talk too much.

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you?

Agreed to marry me?

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker?

Lying. Even those people who always tell lots of little white lies that don't hurt anybody.

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special?

Usually just tell them.

1. When you meet someone for the first time, how soon do you decide if you like them or not?
I decide straight away...but I don't always make the right decision. Some of my closest friends are people I did not think I would get along with at first, but then I got to know them over time. On the other hand- when I decide on first meeting that a person is a "wrong 'un" I am usually proved right.

2. What little foible do you have that someone else really hates?
Pedantry. I can't help it. "Less fruit... fewer apples" - Grrr [Roll Eyes]

3. What's the cutest thing anyone has ever done for you?
Not sure about the cutest... but Mrs Grummash sometimes hides little notes between my sandwiches so that I find them at lunchtime.

4. In a relationship (real or hypothetical) what little idiosyncracy would be the deal-breaker?
Smoking. I couldn't get it together with anyone who smelled like an ashtray.

5. What do you do to let someone in your life know they are special?
I like to buy little gifts now and then, but Mrs Grummash thinks it's lovely when I meet her at the bus-stop and walk her home.
