I’ve come to realize there is nothing wrong with being a little picky when it comes to your partner… Not that I’ve been particularly picky in my own past with the 4 guys I have dated, but more recently since becoming single again.. I’ve dated 4 very different guys. A Golfer/nerd, an artsy stoner outcast, a good ol’ country boy, and a macho bad boy. Of course these are very generalized descriptions but it gets the point across…
The guys I’ve talked to are also very different… Nerdy awkward good boy, tattooed bad boy with a past of bad decisions, and psycho gym rat. Luckily these three only lasted a few weeks at most! *rolls eyes*
After the last one, I woke up in a sense… I realized that if I don’t feel “it” I can’t even make myself settle, if I ever wanted to. I think you can know within one good conversation if the other person is compatible with you. If you feel any doubts, that’s your gut telling you they aren’t right. I wish I would’ve known or listened to that gut feeling a few times in my past… But at least I know it now.
If you get the feeling you don’t have anything in common it probably means it’ll be a waste of time in the long run. From my experience anyway… You have to be compatible, as well as have chemistry. It’s ok not to have all the same hobbies or interests, but at least a good amount. Or be willing to become interested in what each other likes.
Anyway… Maybe I am a little picky but oh well… One day I’ll meet that tattooed God-loving country boy of my dreams. A guy who’s a mix of Jane Austen’s Mr Darcy, Christian Grey, and Luke Bryan. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? 😉
