Dating Pet Peeves
Ren only did five of these, so I suppose I’ll do merely five of these, too. Isn’t that much easier than listing out the flaws and annoyances of each of my exes?
I have asthma, and smoke and smokers don’t help that at all. I try my best to stay away from them so my breathing doesn’t screw up and so I don’t have to use an inhaler or anything like that thanks to attack that was caused by the smoke and the smoking. Aside from that, the smell itself is overall putrid to me. If you smoke, please don’t take offense.
2. “I want to just make out with you all day long.”
Okay… Is that all you want to do with me? Because I might just slap you in the face. In all honesty, it sounds quite boring and time consuming. We could do other productive things that won’t create the possibility of us getting carried away into something more intimate… How about walking in the park? We could chat and such and get to know each other better than feeling up each other’s bodies – which is the farthest from mesmerizing, if you ask me. …But how could you ask me when you just want to kiss me all day?
Whenever guys tell me they want to kiss me, make out with me and blah, blah, blah, I seriously want to just barf right there – all over them. Relationships aren’t all about kissing, and if you get to within a month or two of us being in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, then kudos to you, bud, because you did something right.
3. Saying “I love you”, talking about our wedding and our future children
Really? My wedding is not going to be what you just described because it’s so different from the traditional styles of wedding out there1. Also, our future children are just that – future. We aren’t engaged to be married, and our wedding isn’t even close to anything going on right now.
For some odd reason, I’m never the first person to tell my partner I love them… Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around? …Also, it isn’t okay to tell me you’re in love with me when we’ve only been together for two months. Three months is cool, I suppose, but I would prefer it be after the stagnation stage of our relationship.
4. When guys are more clingy than I
A lot of hand holding and PDA is not me. In high school a mere hug was perfectly fine with me, but the guy always seemed to want more. Or hey, if you’re just walking me to class, and we’re talking on the way there and I don’t happen to hug you before leaving you, don’t get all ticked off at me. It isn’t that big of a deal to me. However, there are times you should freaking hug me… Like if you’re in front of your friends, maybe? I don’t expect it, but when they talk about your ex-girlfriends in front of me and how she did this or was like that, then it’s not okay. It’s just annoying, and it’s as if they’re saying, “Hey, you’re not like that at all,” and it’s just really difficult for me.
Text messaging me a lot and/or relying on the Internet or our phones is not the best thing to do. I’m not going to carry my phone with me everywhere I go, you know.
…Do we seriously have to spend every waking hour together?
5. “You’re not even trying to make us work.”
-.- Then why are we still together? I’m not your mom; I’m not going to baby you. I might not always be around. I don’t like mushy-gushy/cheesy crap unless it’s a rare occasion. Most importantly, I am not going to just sit there and act like you’re “the best” thing that’s ever happened to me whilst you continue to talk about your ex and/or do any of the above that aggravates me more than public speaking2!
