Re: list of boyfriend rules

PS I just wrote about farts, prejudice, and the nature of morality in one post. This makes me very pleased.

That list is so cute. It would be interesting to see what they actually settle for in the future.

Difference between Americans and Swedes: we don't really find farts funny most of the time.
I actually do think they're funny. There is a fabulous quote: "You don't have to be smart to laugh at a fart, but you'd have to be stupid not to." Part of their charm is that they are a breech in etiquette, though, and so maintaining that etiquette 99% of the time is important!
First off, I really shouldn't post before breakfast. I get all snippy.

And of course we can find farts funny. I have siblings after all, it's near a form of communication. but I guess it's just levels of it. For example...the bloody Slitheen in Doctor Who. I know, they haven't really been sen in the series since the first season of the restart, but...fart aliens? I just don't find it funny.

Re: list of boyfriend rules

Oh right, the list. Eh, might as well. Of course had to read some creepy stuff earlier and have to distract myself now. This would mainly have to be for girlfriend rules then, seeing as while I am bi, it's with a heavy bias towards women.

1. Is a geek or at least accepts that I am and will always be a huge geek. I can socialize and act "normal", but I will always love Trek and Doctor Who and spaceships and bowties are cool.
2. Shorter than me by a bit. Which should be fine seeing as I'm 6'3". I'm really sorry ladies of my height or taller, but you irrationally scare me.
3. More intelligent than me. No, it's not that I hate "dumb" people, it's just that I've found I get exasperated with me being the most intelligent person in a relationship.
4. Not a prude. I don't mean like walking around in a micro-bikini or talking far and wide about their sex life, but sex is a wonderful thing and should be fine to talk about amongst another.
5. Adventurous sexually. Just missionary with the lights of will make me get bored quick. I want to explore my sexuality with both my partner and others involved is so inclined.
6. Good hygiene.
7. Must at least like dogs, preferably cats as well.
8. Not conservative or extremely religious. I'm not and it's just not gonna work.
9. Is fine with me at times doing other stuff (like work at work) and doesn't expect me to answer to every text immediately.
10. Doesn't want to just sit around all day! I do that too much already and would really need someone more active.
11. Can discuss things and just doesn't set their mind to one opinion an keep it there indefinitely. If you have a well thought out basis for your opinions, fine. "It just is that way" is not an acceptable answer.


Wow, that sounds a bit bitter almost. Anyway, I'd say those are the requirements. I mean, I prefer other stuff as well like dark hair, artistic, some nice tattoos, at least reads once in a while, green eyes...but the list is more stuff that really matters.

I apparently disagree with many posters here on the "respect everyone" rule. In my book disrespect must be earned, not the other way round.
I'm with you: respect until/unless there's a reason not to.

She does seem to think that being a believer in God (any apparently) guarantees that you will be those things though, which obviously is breathtakingly deluded nonsense.
Yeah, religion or lack thereof doesn't seem to correlate all that much with whether a person is a dick or not.

Oh wait, we probably should have discussed this earlier. I'm fairly certain I bought you for a small bag of magic beans. They're a musical fruit, you know.

Re: list of boyfriend rules

I suppose I should come with some kind of a comprehensive list of my own. I'm guessing that:

1) Is compatible with me.

is probably a little vague.

An Officer wrote: View Post
A practicing believer in God would be the sum total of my list. That sorts out concerns about manners, respect, gentleness, charitability, and whether the person genuinely from the heart wants to do good, or is simply trying to impress those around him, or inflating his own ego. It also takes care of concerns regarding materialism/individualism, in that the spiritual life and character and good actions become the primary focus. This type of essence makes a person more trustworthy, reliable, and strong, in all areas of life. And it becomes possible to work together towards success in the next life, not just this one.
Some of us have actually spent the last fifty odd years being nice to people, helping little old ladies across the street, giving to charity, being honest, working in jobs such as health care, being kind to animals, nurturing and supporting friends and strangers, marching, arguing, writing, and otherwise struggling on a daily basis to improve the human condition by whatever incremental steps we can manage, and we do it without the slightest belief in the occult.
