I'm very easy to get along with. The only real problem that I could ever have with a girl (and would totally be the reason that I will lose her number) is if she doesn't have a sense of humor. If she doesn't like to laugh and takes herself too seriously, then we can never ever be together.

Oh! Another one! I dislike anyone who picks out people just because they're attractive and cares nothing for what their personality could be.
That too! I don't want to be some trophy you know? I've been there done that, and it's just not good.

Women who are controlling, and who think they have the "right" to sculpt a man into what she wants...

Years ago a friend of mine related this story to me (in his words), "She picked me up in a bar, we fell for each other and a couple of weeks later, she wanted me to stop drinking."

Where does that logic come from? They didn't stay together long.

Edit: Oops, forgot to answer the question.

Turn on - intelligence
Turn off - being negative

That's it.

I can't stand guys who are pushy, like when they hear no they seem to think it means nudge hassle and ask 20 more times. I hate arrogant, cocky guys who make it seem like they're doing you a favor, giving you the time of day. I can't say I've ever known a guy who looked good with one of those calf tattoos, and absolutely no piercings below the waist, it's just gross and awkward when you get to that point. Fast movers, bleh, or guys who jump on the assumption they own you after a first date. I went out with a guy once, and I emphasize the word once, because later that night I got a text from him calling me baby and telling me he didn't want me seeing anyone else, and it was creepy. Also, I can understand this is different for everyone, but having family like my brother who's not a rude or unreasonable guy, I won't date someone who's a jerk to him right off the bat. I went out on a couple dates when I was 15 with a guy who was 20, and he came over to my dad's house one day and my brother shook his hand and introduced himself, and asked how old he was, and the guy I was dating at that time said "Why the **** is it any of your business?" He could've told the truth or he could've lied, but the worst route was definitely having that response. Anyway, basically guys who are just plain jack-donkeys, who cuss and swear constantly for no reason whatsoever and have no courtesy for anyone but themselves, who treat me like crap and are completely inconsiderate and have that "I'm never wrong, it's just everyone else" attitude. I can understand plenty of guys don't like kids or animals or whatever, but one time one of my youngest nieces ran up to a guy I'd been on 2 dates with to hug him, and rather than pulling her off and setting her aside, or letting me get her which I was coming over to do, he basically kneed her in the face and sent her flying. It took soooo much self-control on my part to not hurt that him, badly, but I dragged him outside to his car with me and I told him he was a creep and to not plan on seeing me again, and I told him if my niece hadn't been there I would've knocked his face in. I was absolutely fuming, and I'd never give 2 looks to another guy like that.

I guess you don't want to be my internet date :cry: lol I curse like a sailor & I can't wait until next week, when I get my "special" piercing. I my sister & mother weren't on my Facebook, I'd make it my profile pic.

Wow, what trash. Where do you meet these people? I'm from NY and I never even come across people like this. I have no tolerance for people who screw with my family or dogs. If anyone ever put a violent hand on my little niece (or dog for that matter) I'd grab my baseball bat and make sure the persons kneecaps never ever worked again.

I let people talk smack to my daughter & kick my pets around all the time. That's how I know they're special. :wub:


I'm joking, by the way people.

I know you are, man. But really, I just feel like if someone ever kneed my little niece or dog in the face, how could I not turn into the incredible hulk and throw them out of a window?

Oh no, I swear a bunch too, it's just that some guys do it where it's literally 1 out of every 2 or 3 words in an entire conversation, and it's obnoxious.

I don't even know, there really is a lot of crappy men out there. I was in a mindset for a long, long, way-too-long time that I deserved it whenever someone decided to start smacking me around; I just fairly recently started getting out of that. Anyway I'm not a physically violent person by nature, but it took a lot for me to not re-landscape the face of that moron who kneed my niece. It wasn't just a little bump, he actually hurt her, and she went flying.

I have less control than you..I would have lashed out hard at anyone who did that to a child...  I have done and would do it again if I had to..   One of these days that guy you mention who hurt that little girl for trying to hug him, will  seriously wind up   ( if he's lucky )  in a hospital bed ..

Things I have hated about men I dated:

- Spent more money on, and had more photos of, his WoW character than me
- Being told that my job as a woman was to shut up and cook
- Being forced to be social (I prefer to not be around other people)
- When they have found out I'm bi and replied with "Oh cool, so I can see some girl on girl?" Uhhh no.
- Clingy. Really really clingy
- Telling me I'm fat as "encouragement to lose weight"

And things in general that I find off putting in guys:

- Low intelligence
- Constant childishness
- Constant seriousness
- Facial hair
- Messy hair
- Messy appearance in general
- Overly opinionated
- Preachy
- Shorter than me (I'm 5'1, so it very rarely happens)
- Aggressiveness
- Guys that have to step in every time they think I need saving. I've fought for myself for 23 years, I'll most likely be fine

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Women who want to snap at you because they had a bad day. If I didn't have anything to do with it, don't try to punish me for it. While it's obviously a different degree, that's as bad as a man who comes home and slaps his wife because he hates his job.

One thing that annoys me and I cannot fathom is when I'm with a girl and another girl she knows walks into the room and she jumps up and runs squeeling over to her and gives her a great big hug, spends 5 minutes telling her how good she looks, then comes back and says, "I can't stand that b/tch!!" - I have also discovered that asking why she'd go out of her way to try and act like friends with someone she doesn't like just makes them mad at you.

I also have the classic pet peeve about women not speaking their minds about what they want:

What do you want to eat?
I don't care.
How about pizza?
I'm not really in the mood for pizza.
Barbeque?
Can we get something else?
<Through gritted teeth with smoke coming out my ears> How'about you make a f'kng suggestion and we'll eat that?

Also I can't stand girls who pick fights and then expect me to take up for them.

  • You can't just choose to believe something.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

Posted 15 October 2012 - 04:28 PM

There are several things listed here that I agree with but one thing that bothers me is simply being fake. I like natural women with a demure personality. No no's are fake breasts (or any other implants), Botox injections, tattoos (maybe a small inconspicuous one), tons of makeup (less is better, none is great), piercings other than the ears, constantly changing their hair color, and the need to always try to dress sexy (Like their always on the prowl.)

Women should age gracefully......they shouldn't always be looking for ways to look younger (and wasting a lot of money on it).

Oh, and no smoking or drug use! Cigarette smoke is disgusting and drug use is.....well, you get the picture....

Get three coffins ready.

My mistake, four coffins.
