Love Lessons...

I use to date this guy, who was a huge star wars nerd. Well, pretty much he was a nerd in general but he sure loved star wars.

He had all his childhood toys stashed away, and reveled in the ever popular collection of new toys, that never came out of their packages.
"They will be worth money some day" Yes, when they are pried from your cold dead hands! Nerds always say that, but seriously, they never intend to sell them, so why mention it?

As if that wasnt bad enough, he had several rooms dedicated to hanging toys on the wall. He made it an official past time to surf ebay and amazon for new toys. And the amount of glee he got at their arrival, was kind of embaressing.

I moved in with this guy. Knowing this about him. Despite his Star TREK collectible plates perfectly lined up on the wall along his windows in the um..living room. He was the first guy that was nice to me, and a lesson learned is that it takes more than nice to make a relationship work. Attraction helps. A lot. Even if theres a little. How do you have make up sex when the thought of sex with someone disgusts you?

This was my first lesson in not listening to what people say when it comes to love. If you don't feel it you don't feel it! "he'll be good to you" is something I think they said in the 50's. Because if you didn't find a man to be good to you, you'd be selling it on the streets. Did they sell it in the 50's? I duno.

This is the millenium!

I could go on forever about the women to men tolerance ratio being disgustingly uneven....leave your shit all over the house? thats ok! Don't clean the poop tracks out of your toilet? so what! live on eating only meat, and butter? Thats understandable! leave your beard hairs all over the sink? Ok! When do we get married? Drool in your sleep? Adorable!
Have you ever dated a nerd? Or a guy who left poop tracks in the toilet? I've dated both. And then some!

I dated a nerd that made me go to the midnight showing of star wars, BOORING, and he was as hairy as gorilla, I hate men with hair backs and chest, but I thought I'd give him a chance. That hair was everywhere from the sheets in the bed to the shower, plus he NEVER brushed his teeth, I always had to yell at him to do so, but in the end, we got our laugh with the canoe paddle.
