Hi guys, my name is Leebrah and guess what? I was born on Halloween! Yes, I am a Libra. Kind of kills the "What's your sign?" pick up line (FYI it's outdated anyway...if that's all you can muster up, move along! Us Libra's like creativity and being engaged in conversation) HOWEVER, I seem to be on this dating streak where I meet the guy, we have dinner or drinks or coffee and not ten minutes in he literally starts talking about his ex-girlfriend or his past sexual partners or all manners of CRAZY experiences he's had. I'm like "Slow down, all I asked was if you like Mexican food or not."
So guys out there, imagine you are on my end of this deal. I'll give you an example of the last guy I went out with. Met on Plentyofflakes.com and decided to meet at this Chinese restaurant close to my place. He meets me at the hostess stand...nice guy, wonderful smile..I'm in good spirits. We sit down, chat for a few. Enjoy some commentary back and forth about the menu items, talk about cooking, what we've tried, etc. It was like the first chance he got he segue's into saying how his ex girlfriend never let him cook. I'm thinking okay he has an ex girlfriend, good to know. But then it was like every topic that came up he related to her and how they did things so now I'm thinking he's really not over this relationship. I'm also thinking the guy has no personal identity that doesn't have to do with her and he's just looking for the next scapegoat for all of his problems. The guy before him got into blatant details about his sex life including, but not limited to ages, sizes, specific talents, quantity of times, quantity of people, quality of organs, piercing status and on an on.
So from now on guys, I'm showing up with a non-disclosure agreement. An agreement that states you are not allowed to speak of ex's, sexes, crazy life stories that don't include something heroic, nothing negative, no mental illness, no deep family conversations, convictions, accidents and a number of other items. Let's keep it light for awhile, stay in the moment. Please put your favorite mexican food in the subject line of your email :)
