Ive been blinded by love or likes one 2 many time!

Ok Ill admit it... I dated a funny walker!!.... for an entire year too.. We shall call him Mr. Souvlaki

The only way to describe Mr.Souvlaki's walk would be to say it was almost like he had a pickle up his bum and was always dressed in invisible tight leather chaps!

I met him at a lounge. It was dark, I was tipsy and I wasn't really paying too much attention to him because his friend was following me around like a mosquito so I didn't notice the "walk". I must have noticed it on our first date (it was so long ago I don't remember but really how could I not right?) but he was sweet and interesting and we sat most of the date anyway so when he asked to see me again I agreed to a second date. Date 2 lead to 3...10...50 etc.. fast forward about 10 months, a bunch of lies (on his part), excuses and arguments and I was no longer blind. The "walk" stood out more... it became embarrassing and truth be told it added to my already fading feelings for Mr Souvlaki.

I ended things a few months after and we remained civil. I saw him a few times in the following year after the break up for coffee or a drink and each time I left I shuddered a little to think I was actually his gf for so long.

The worst part is when I mentioned it after the break up to my girls they all let out a massive sigh of relief and I knew exactly what that meant.... They could finally talk about it. They could finally ask me how it never bothered me or why the heck he walked like that to begin with. The only answer I could ever come up with was I don't know... I guess the saying love is blind is true... what about likes though? Im not so convinced I was ever in love with him...

Have you ever been blinded by love or likes?? What did you overlook then that makes you want to gag now??

Stay Pretty ;)

i dated a guy who was very pigeon toed. i had to end things when he demanded to hold hands while walking down an escalator. that was a sign that he didn't care about my safety -- because clearly he could have tripped over his toes and killed us both right there in the mall.

Oh my god! Worse than Funny Walker is Laughs Loudly At His Own Jokes. Both are deal breakers, though I know it makes me shallow. A guy doesn't have to look like Brad Pitt, but if he laughs loudly at his own jokes... that's a problem.

Maybe if I got to know the guy first and fell in love with him that way...

I was married to a mama's boy - the kind of mama's boy that still has an umbilical cord attached. He totally disgusts me now.
