People often ask me, “What’s your type?” Meaning type of man I’m interested in. I think back on all the boyfriends I’ve had and all the guys I’ve dated and find some common themes. Most of them were smart (sometimes the dumb ones can be fun J), funny (that’s a must), artsy (I love creative people) and soulful (makes me use my brain). I have dated men who had all of these qualities (those are my fav’s).
Looks aren’t that important to me. I don’t want to be with a pizza-faced Cyclops, but what’s on the inside is what counts in my book. Speaking of books…I love it when a man is educated. I don’t mean college, I mean when he reads and learns and furthers himself. That is super sexy.
Speaking of sexy…what I think is sexy is; tattoos (makes me melt), motorcycles (go faster please), muscle cars (the louder the better), individuality, respect, creativity, confidence, ambition and laughter. The thing I find most sexy though is truth. When a person can take off all the masks and just be; that will turn me into a marshmallow.
Turn offs are arrogance, obsession with money, pretenders, guys who’s favorite band is Green Day (really?), liars and people who can’t handle sarcasm. I was with someone for a long time who didn’t get the whole sarcasm thing and I hurt his feelings a lot by things that I said. After awhile I realized he was a wuss and needed to put on some big boy pants. I don’t have any time for people like this. They will get absolutely nowhere with me.
Here are things I know about myself; I’m smart (I’m working on not correcting grammar, like when a person uses an adjective instead of an adverb), I love to read, I want to be a ninja (not likely, so I take a martial art instead), I love to help people out, I’m funny and sharp-tongued to a fault, I’m incredibly loyal to all of my homies (you mess with them, you mess with me), I write and take pics every single day, I’m outgoing and can be very loud.
I’d say don’t get too hung up on your “type” though. I have been surprised by certain someone’s at times for turning out to be something other than what I thought they were. If a guy asks you out, a guy you normally wouldn’t be interested in, take a chance. I’ve dated men who ended up being really great friends and still are to this day. Put yourself out there, with everything you do.
