Why is it you use the word "all"? A popular word, but I've certainly not
the horrifying women. In that regard, I feel blessed
. I leave it to other men, to meet them. They get to "luck out".
I do not
wear a sign that says, "I'd like to meet crazy.
Can you help me out?"
I do not
crazy women. I find out after
I meet them. Which means I have talked to them, some.
Initially...they pass the check list. (I have one. Converse first, meet second. Apparently crazy? Apparently not.) I'll give you an example of horrifying. She worked in a public school, as a librarian...and when I met her, she made it sound like she worked in a war zone, in Afghanistan, fighting the Taliban. I merely questioned that...which provoked instant rage
. GRRR! She huffed off. Very upset. So I calmly sat with my tea...alone...feeling relief. Sitting alone can be much nicer. I want to meet someone...but not
a crazy woman.
If there is some kind of cologne, known to attract ditzes...I've never purchased any! It's curious to me why you'd even suggest that maybe I do something to attract
them. I've asked myself that question. And cleared myself. For I am sane
and try hard to be a gentleman. I do my best to avoid
the horrifying ones. That's why I like to talk first, before I meet someone.
Is it because your dates have all gone well? You assume everyone's sane...so give them the benefit of the doubt? I could...but then...fair chance...I'd end up with someone horrifying
. Best to find out early on...first cup...is my theory. But I don't do snap judgement. I'm talking about women who could earn certificates
Another example. She kept calling me by the name of the apartment building I lived in. "Dashwood". She finally admitted...her head once slammed into a windshield. Now I could feel pity - that's a bummer - but that could mean being called "Dashwood" for the rest of my life.
