Texting…yet again – from the male perspective this time

I couldn’t resist.  Check out this post from The #1 Rated Dating and Relationship Blog on the Internet:

Essentially, texting is emailing for the lazy, illiterate and mobile. You send a text when you don’t want to talk to someone, but you want to let them know you’re thinking of them. And what can be more flattering than conveying, electronically, the idea that you DON’T want to talk to the woman you’re courting? Essentially, guys across America are saying, “Hey, babe. You’re not important enough to get five minutes of phone time. Please accept this weak form of communication and allow me to keep on sleeping with you.”

Deal Breakers

I’m doing an exercise where I’m listing out my deal breakers.  Don’t play dumb, you know what I’m talking about – those things that a man (or woman) might do that leave a bad taste in your mouth (if your deal breaker is bad breath, that’s literally).

So I’m working through my list, and I know I’m forgetting some things.  So I turn to the internet for inspiration.  And you know what?  There’s surprisingly few good lists out there.

Here’s a good article.  He opens the door to a restaurants and walks in ahead of you: Definite deal breaker.  He sings out of tune:  who cares?  A fanny pack:  deal breaker.

Here’s a message board.  Oh – owning Michael Bolton CD’s: that might be a deal breaker.

It’s been a popular topic on Yahoo Answers.  I think my favorite answer comes from Jewel, who says her deal breaker is “DEATH.”

And then I found this.

One of my deal breakers are scary eyes – you know, eyes that just make you think:  “Psycho!”  Another:  someone who is skinnier than me.  If he can fit in my jeans, he’s out.

So, what’s your deal breaker???
