I’m always disappointed when I meet a new guy who I think is fantastic who turns out to only be a pervert.
Don’t get me wrong. Some of my closest friends are perverted. And I suspect (okay, I KNOW) I am as well. It’s not that I mind perverts.
It’s just that I don’t want them to LEAD with that in our VERY FIRST conversation together.
Show me your character first THEN show me your eccentricities.
Take The Fireman for instance. Tall, handsome, heroic, and funny. There wasn’t much this guy had to do to get it right.
He was already tailor made for me.
And who doesn’t LOVE a fireman?
Then we had this exchange after talking about some of my earlier adventures – sky diving, running with the bulls, and racing stock cars.
The instant he sent me those texts, I wrote him off.
Big, red flags were blazing in front of my eyes.
I don’t want the first thought in his head to be about how good I am in bed. I want it to be about how awesome I am to hang out with.
So let’s just file The Fireman under “UNAVAILABLE” and move on from there.
