I’m Googling writing prompts in an effort to inspire creativity. My muse is on a hiatus of sorts so I’m hoping to jump start something here without the lazy little bitch’s help.
I found a prompt titled “No Can Do” and the question: Do you have any absolute dealbreakers in a relationship?
Hell yes, I do. As I’ve gotten older and dated or married one jackass after another and after this last break up with F., I’ve decided I actually do have honest to goodness dealbreakers. Keep in mind these are based on past experiences with men. In no particular order:
*If your back is so hairy it looks like the backside of a gorilla, forget it. I’ll never be able to touch you without getting completely creeped out.
*Drinking doesn’t bother me but if you’re an alcoholic, please move along. I’m not capable of handling the whole Jekyll/Hyde thing.
*If you don’t read, I’m not interested. By read, I mean actual books not random articles you’ve found on the internet about stupid shit nobody gives a crap about (like this blog, for instance).
*Have some kind of goals for yourself. Anything will do.
*Have your own life, ideas, opinions and hobbies. No matter how much I love you I’ll never want to spend every single second of the day with you & you shouldn’t want to do that with me. It’s perfectly healthy to not share everything.
*Lying? Won’t tolerate it.
*Music…I MUST have it in my life. If you’re a dude who likes to listen to talk radio all the time, we probably won’t get along very well.
*I’m a Mom first and foremost so if you don’t like kids or you think you might be jealous because mine will always come first, it’s a no go.
Those are the biggies that’ll make me run screaming. What about you? Got any dealbreakers?
