Cheating

"Everyone has that first date. And the object is to hide your flaws, and then you are in a relationship and its all about hiding your disappointment, then once you are married its about hiding your sins."

Thank God that I haven't had it yet.Hiding my flaws to get into a relationship sure ain't my thing.Since everyone is doing that I think I will just do the opposite,that is if it ever happens,I'm so terribly choosy that it will be a miracle if I ever have even 1 date.

You surely are making the right decision, because otherwise you would be living somebody else's fantasy!!

But then again, nobody is perfect... If you want someone to take your shit, you probably need to be able to handle theirs. You know, it works both ways!!

So in other words you agree with me that it's a good idea for me to let it all hang out so to speak on my first date in case it ever happens?What a great first impression I will make on the man,I will be like no other woman on earth,I'll be an ORIGINAL,he'll flip for me and get down on bended knees to propose,guaranteed.But will I,is the question?

Take my advice Devil's Mind and do the unexpected, and you'll reel the girl in hook,line and sinker.

Well, in my experience, honesty is not a popular thing. There are no grantees that being "original" will make people like or love you. Actually, in most cases quite the opposite.

But, the way I see it, hiding your flaws is a tedious task. You put lots of effort convincing the other person that you are someone else, and end up with someone who loves someone else... Although that someone else is you!

And personally, I hate tedious tasks, I prefer the easy way! It's too much work for a disappointing result!!

I happen to like honesty,a person that is him/herself and tells it like it is take it or leave it,in other words I like people that don't wear masks,even though they are pretty antagonistic, sarcastic and don't even talk to people,just ignore them altogether if that's what they feel led to do,you know the dreamy,off in their own world, artistic weird type of people.They are so exciting to me,because I'm the disciplined goody-2-shoe type you see and I like the opposite of me.
