Never give up on love


« on: March 12, 2011, 11:50:32 PM »

I was thinking the other day about how people assume certain things about me that are totally wrong for reasons best known to themselves.  They don't have to necessarily be bad or nasty, but when people get to know me, they say, "You know when I met you I thought <insert odd assumption here>".

And so, in that light, I would like to know (because I'm nosy) what assmptions does the world make about you that are incorrect?  In the spirit of full disclosure, I'll go first:

1.  I'm a feminine girly girl, but I'm not romantic.  I find it difficult to be so, probably because I've never had men in my life who made it a priority.  I don't remember anniversaries or when Valentine's Day is and if it wasn't for Sean, I would probably forget my own birthday.

2.  I don't like romantic comedies (as a general rule).  I enjoy the odd one, When Harry Met Sally, The American President for example.  But when I see a romcom in the cinemas, my general reaction is, "Isn't there  an action/zombie/alien movie playing instead?"

3.  I'm not a shoe/clothes/handbag person.  Those things are all functional items and I cringe when women blather on about how they paid $500 for a pair of shoes or a handbag.  From what I can see, the higher the cost of these items, the more ridiculous and ugly they appear to be.

4.  I'm strong, independant and self reliant.  But my heart is very easily broken.  I'm very sensitive even though it looks like I'm made of teflon coated lead.  That leads people to believe that they can behave the way they want around me and I'll just take it on the chin.  WRONG!!!

That's all I can think of right now.  Over to you Bad Movie lovers  TeddyR

A lot of people think I'm goth.. I'm not!  I'm a little dark, but I love rainbows and being happy.  I'm not goth, I just look really good in black.

I totally agree with you on 2 and 3!  It seems like just being a girl makes other girls think you're going to be into all the typical girl junk.  I don't really like romantical comedies with the exception of Overboard, Romancing the Stone, and Dead Alive, and maybe a couple others.  And I have 3 pairs of shoes that I got for less than $50 and 3 pairs of pants (yeah, I wear them a couple days in a row- so what!) and I DON'T carry a purse, it's just a bag with all my stuff in it.

I've often had people mistake me for a drinker (and I've never touched alcohol in my life)..perhaps because I have a belly.

Guys always expect me to love sports when honestly I have little to no interest in most sports aside from a passing interest in hockey and a strong interest in pro wrestling (if you can even call that a sport). I don't care for MMA which surprises some people but honestly it just seems too much like two guys trying to ride one another to me.

Most people would be surprised to know I like musicals and old romantic comedies.

I hear you about MMA.  It seems like they just want to indulge in a little man-love BounceGiggle

My partner enjoys watching it but he also enjoys joking about the man-love thing with me as well.  Smile

2. Into tech stuff, but don't own a cellphone, and never have.
3. Again, I'm a complete gearhead, but prefer 4-door cars.
4. I really don't care for trucks.
5. I consider myself a pizza connoisseur (no joke).
6. I like to cook, and have some very high quality and expensive cookware, yet my favorite dish is Ramen noodles and chicken hearts.

People ususally don't expect someone of my appearance to be so intelligent and articulate with my words and thoughts. This was most prevalent in the 80's during my denim and leather days as a metalhead. It was suprising how many "normal" people praised me for "having a brain under all that hair and clothing."  It suprised even more when they found out I was and still am a non-drinker\non-drug kind of guy.  I guess being unconventional has it's rewards?  Wink

Aside from this "intelligence" I somehow possess, I guess my second most deceptive trait is that I'll watch movies and\or listen to music that many don't think I normally would.  I guess you could say I go from Mozart to Motorhead and back again, lol

Deceptively intelligent despite my appearance, and unconventional and equally deceptive in my diversity of hobbies, music and film. I guess that's my lot.  There could be more as this thread progresses and develops...

Ooooh boy, here we goÖ

1.) I hardly smile so people who really donít know me generally take me serious all the time.  BUT, I have quite the sense of humor and people are generally shocked when they find that out about me.  Iím also very sarcastic so some people often think Iím being a major d!ck to them when Iím actually just joking.   I just donít feel a need to smile all the time.  Frankly, I worry about those who do.

2.) I hardly watch any sports.  Matter of fact I think its silly grown men/women get paid so much to play them.   That and so many live vicariously through them.

3.) Going along with the first item, people think Iím straight laced and arrogant when they first encounter me.  (again, the no smiling thing)  Then people once they get to know me find out Iím into horror films, heavy metal music, potty humor and have tattoos.  People often tell me they canít believe what they originally thought of me.

4.) Iím notoriously cheap when it comes to money however people are often shocked when they find out Iíve hosted several successful fundraisers.

5.) Iím actually pretty decent at baking/cooking and somewhat enjoy it.  

6.) Iím big into vegetable gardening.  

7.) I used to be an on air DJ so Iím pretty good at public speaking and writing.  

8.) I have hardly a skill when it comes to gear/tech stuff.  Iím amazed if I can change a tire.  

9.) Although I have three kids I love dearly, I really don't like kids.  Like farts I can only tolerate mine.

10.) Although I am completely afraid of germs, I have no problem going fishing or digging in the dirt.

1. Even though I am middle-aged and chubby, I am a 3rd degree black belt and know lots of interesting strikes that can put folks on the floor.
2. I have a willingess to be perfectly silly and not care what anyone thinks.
3. I believe in God and the Biblical creation account; I also have no problem with the earth being 6.5 billiion years old.
4. I can find Indian arrowheads nearly anywhere.
5. I can belch all 7 continents.
6. I know more Presidential trivia than most historians do.
7.  I have the sexiest nostrils in the known universe.

I watch the same Godzilla movies over and over and over. (I could tell you anything you wanted to know)

I'm sure I watched the Goonies about a 1000 times now. (Cyndi Lauper's voice will be in my head forever)

I watch the same Kung Fu movies over and over. (I talk like the actors in the movies, it makes people mad lol)

I constantly quote movies. People look at me funny when I do so. (Hmmp, you go to Hell!)

I won't wear any kind of jacket but black leather. (I think I'm cool lol *wink*)

I like hard street rap and dark heavy metal at he same time. (That's pretty unusual)

I like PIZZA for breakfast, square tomato pie. (this is true)

I know all the Gilligan's Island episodes by heart. (brings me back. I love it)

Like Killerbees and Paquita, I'm a girly girl, too BUT I can handle a 22 rifle very well and have a concealed weapons permit for my Lady Smith.  I love target shooting, and about 6 years ago I was into archery and got myself a 6 point buck. Had to stop bow hunting because I began having problems with my shoulder.

I love the outdoors, fishing, hiking etc. I love state parks to go exploring. My dream has always been to go to Alaska, maybe someday.

I actually do like romantic dramas and comedies.  My favorite is Dr. Zhivago.  I love all the history connected with it.

I love horror/scifi movies both GOOD and BAD. The GOOD -the old Hammer films, Ray Harryhausen stuff, Alien, Predator, the Gillman from CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (fantastic costume design) to name a few.  The BAD (as in loved it anyway) - the guy in the rubber suit dinosaur movies, the Giant Claw puppet, the monsters with rolling eyeballs, antennas coming out of their heads, etc.

I pretty much like all types of music, but like the oldies from the late 50's and 60's the most.

I really don't
like talking on the phone,  Im not a great cook, and I'd rather wear a pair of old jeans than a dress anytime.  As a matter of fact, I don't even have a single dress hanging in my closet.  But I will wear a pretty ruffly blouse with a nice pair of jeans.

And I really don't care what the world thinks of me.   Only what my hubby and my kids and grandkids think. My hubby loves me with all my quirks. My kids think I'm a hoot and my grandkids ... I hope that when I'm gone they will remember when I sat down with them and drew pictures of butterflies with them. Smile

my predilection for malt liquor. I lived in the city in college but out here in the burbs its relatively unheard of. It's just stonger and cheaper beer, people!
