Here's my personal test: when I'm attracted to a woman, I imagine that she's a man. (Yeah, I know, I am wide open for Spungo here). If she were a man, would I still be interested in hanging out with her and having a friendly relationship with her? That separates out the physical attraction from the character attraction.

Umm...what exactly are you leaving wide open for him???? [Confused] [Wink]

personally i don't think that snups or spungo are turning these boards into a dung heap of profanity, innuendo and sleaze. it's everyone else's dirty subconsciouses (???) that is bringing down these boards. i mean, leaving myself wide open???

i hold my peace m'lud

as for the women i get off with, and i admit it's a sad reflection of myself, but they fall into 3 groups:

1. desperate for sex, willing to grab the nearest living thing, normally very drunk, can't remember my name in the morning

2. (s)mothering types, who want to look after poor cheezi, who duck out of dealing with their own issues by dominating their bf and treating them like incapable children, and would be much better off with a rat-dog on a lead, or a budgerigar in a cage

3. mad, unstable, drama queens, who-have-had/are-in-the-middle-of/will-very-soon-have a nervous breakdown. one of my ex-gf spent 6 months in a mental asylum shortly after breaking up with me, and another still rings me up at 3 in the morning, to tell me that even after almost 2 years she knows that i really want to get back with her, and that i'm just playing mind games with her to hurt her, by pretending i don't love her.

Firstly, I WILL hold an umbrella parade, so rain won't matter. That test werein I think of the girls as a guy isn't bad... I think i need to get out of my town. my town is a beautiful combination of trailer trash, SUV snobs, and heroin addicts, so that could be part of the problem.. for the record, I don't mind freaky girls, just "If you don't call me every two hours I'll take it as rejection and kill myself"-freaky girls. OR, the "I really like you, 'cause you can make my existing bf jealous"-freaky...they suck, too..

Yes, you do that! I really thought it quite rude of you ... tisk TISK, Uilleann. Just because I don't like to have 'meaningful' conversations *all* the time doesn't mean I don't have anything intellectual to say or that I can't be serious/mature. I like the way I am! The only reason you protested is because I'm lively and versatile, and you're jealous of it. [Cool] [Razz]

Last night a friend of mine said "You know, I know I don't know what you are looking for. I know what you AREN'T looking for: Anyone who says 'I' or 'Me' too much, anyone who says 'You' too much, and anyone who gets paid by the hour. I think the last one is a bit harsh, in my opinion, but he has a point, as the last girl I dated was a photographer at walmart. hm. The first two are good rules of thumb though--no one too self absorbed, and no one too accusatory. look for ambition and mental stability too--depression isn't a horrible thing to deal with if properly treated, and just because someone doesn't see a shrink it doesn't mean they're 'okay'...conversely, just because someone does, it doesn't mean they are crazy. I'm all for the mental stability thing! [Smile]

I used to be pretty critical of what people did for a living, like as if they're vocation somehow dictated there self-worth..Then a year and a half ago, I lost my hip, well paying graphic design job..I've done freelance stuff here and there, but frankly, I've just ended up working at a borders books and music for half of what I used to make..Now, as much as that sucks, I've learned two invaluable things; 1) Just because somebody gets "paid by the hour", it doesn't mean they lack drive or ambition..everyone has to start somewhere.. 2) I was NEVER a better person just because I had a cooler job, or more money, actually, the worst person I ever was happened to be when I had the cool career.
Now, I try to judge people by different standards..

Y'know, I've been both salaried and a wage slave, and I kinda prefer the hourly wage. I make more money that way.

Surgeons who haven't sold themselves to an HMO get an hourly wage. Does that make their job "lowly"?

Man, I wish I was paid by the hour. Especially when I work insane hours. Never less that 40 a week, on occasion easily twice that. That would be some beautiful overtime... then again, even a comp day after 24 solid hours would be nice. The only way to get that is make your boss afraid you are mentally unstable from sleep deprivation and likely to say or do things he will have to apologize for.
