OK, While reading that article, I got down to the last guys comment. He was titled single guy or something and I thought, 'no wonder you're single!' Lol. I felt like him saying a woman should at least pretend she's up for things that she really isn't is already starting a path to fakeness. Then he says he wants the woman to pretend she's more adventurous even if she isn't so that way he thinks she'll be possibly up for skinny dipping, sky diving or a THREESOME?! WTF. If she's NOT into something she shouldn't have to pretend to be just to please an arrogant jerk off. IMO
I've been in a monogamous relationship for 5 years so don't plan to ever date again, but the major turn offs would be rude-ness, having any kind of control issues, not being a gentleman, being arrogant or being rude to others/thinking more highly of themselves than others. Those are deal breakers. Call me old fashioned, but I'm more likely to be drawn to a person who I see caring about others. Now if yuu go out of your way to do something for an old lady, man or something similar, you have got my attention! This shows so many things about a person.
My partner and I knew of each other, went to the same school and had the same group of friends, but never really hung around each other until 5 years ago. Guess what really made him stand out to me? I had a killer migraine and we were at a graduation party and I was miserable. I didn't even feel like drinking. I laid down for a minute with a friend and he came in and sat down. He asked if I wanted to ride with him to the store and I said no. Later he showed back up and handed me a pack of BC powder! Ha Ha. First time I ever took em' and my headache was gone with the powder and a little (or a lot) of beer! Lol.
I ended up pretty drunk and this man who I'd grown up with his step-daughter ended up trying some disgusting moves on me (a teenager!) and insisted on taking me to the ladies room to pee. I was objecting, but he insisted I needed his help. The BC powder guy who's now my partner, stopped him and later I was passed out on the ground and literally could not get up on my knees without falling - he had a bottle of alcohol to my mouth and I was saying stop. I don't want more and the nice BC powder guy told him to stop since he'd heard me ask him to. That hooked me! I had gone back to the friends house the next day looking for him and he ended up finding my number and calling me. Those kind gestures got us together and now have had 5 amazing years together! Kindness is a major turn on to me.
