TMI Tuesday: Relationships

Can we talk… relationships?

relationship diagram

1. What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you see an attractive person?
Are they going to blow it the moment they open their mouth?

2. What is your idea of a dream date? Describe the person and the type of date experience.
Anytime I can be within an arms reach of Him. That’s all I need to be happy.

3. How many serious relationships have you had? Were you in love?
I’m guessing somewhere around six – though it may be plus or minus one. My memory is not the best. Yes, of course I was in love. There is no such thing as a serious relationship that does not include love. I don’t even know what that would look like. What are you serious about? The cost of bananas? Oh my goodness, Sam! They’re going up again! What ever will we put on our corn flakes? Oh woe is me!

4. How many casual sexual relationships have you had?
I don’t do casual sex.

5. What will ruin a relationship for you?
Any number of things. Off the top of my head? Betrayal, broken trust, lack of mutual respect, abuse (either physical or emotional), inability to communicate, self injurious behavior, alcohol, illicit drugs, consistent failure to show affection …

Bonus: What is your definition of sexy?
Sexy has very little to do with how a person looks. Yes, be clean and make an effort to take care of one’s self. It is more about whether the person is interesting.

Do they have a wonderful vocabulary and know how to use it? Are they confident? Are they humble? And, no those two things are not mutually exclusive. Are they interested in getting to know me, beyond my cup size? Do they understand that anyone can compliment my body and it takes someone very special to compliment me?

Can they make me laugh when all I want to do is crawl into a hole? Can they speak calmly when I am irrationally angry? Do they know how to apologize? Do they know how to accept an apology? Are they intelligent? Can they speak on a number of subjects with some degree of knowledge? Are they cultured? Do they know which songs it’s acceptable to talk through and which call for silence? Do they explore art / the arts? Do they read more than the newspaper?

Do they understand the art of compromise? Are they passionate about life? Can they be silly? Do they get genuinely excited about anything other than sports? Are they open minded? Are they compassionate? Do they know that not every rant calls for problem solving, that most can be dealt with by being held … or chocolate? Do they know the difference between the two rants? (Because … hey … a girl might cut you. [kidding])

All of these things and many, many others.
