If you think my personality makes me attractive, you obviously have only read a few of my entries. Like you, I have the quaint notion that my LJ is actually a journal, and there's some dark stuff. Some ugluy stuff. Oh well, you'll see.

What can I say? Unlike most American men, I am a sucker for blondes. ;)

I've read enough of you to have a good handle on the light and the dark. Mysterious is always an attractive quality, you know. The dark, brooding man always gets the chicks.

I'm a /strawberry/ blonde, hence the brown eyes and freckles which accompany the unfortunate red in my hair.

The dark, brooding man always gets the chicks.

I can see one flaw in the thought process already...

oh, wait. The dark, brooding guy still has to leave the house and meet the chicks, right? Yeah. That's where it all goes horribly wrong.

Tell you something: Self deprecation and rigorous honesty can be attractive, but I also like it when someone just accepts the compliment.

Not scolding, just saying... I think you look good; stop trying to convince me otherwise. For what it's worth, I like strawberry blondes, especially.

Oh, the dark brooding man's soul will find the chicks, even if he's at home. He has to eat at some point ;)

You're right. I'm horrible at saying "thank you" when someone gives me a compliment. Perhaps I just don't /see/ it like others do. So thank you. I am the queen of self-deprecation.

And I am the Archduke of Self Doubt.

Except when I'm not. Then I'm someone else.

See!! So you know from where the comments come :> Even though I'm making light, as the old adage goes "behind every jest, there's an ounce of truth."

Oh, of course I know where the comments originate. The great thing in self-awareness is you understand others better. The less-great thing is people seem to think self awareness means you'll be different because of it.

I was going to say "surely people aren't THAT stupid" but decided to say that would be.

gotcha. Dunno why, but that made me laugh. I like laughing. Although that's surely about like saying "I enjoy putting my pants on one leg at a time." Who doesn't?

Laughing is always a good idea. See? That whole self-deprecation thing really works!

See, this is the fun part: Getting to know someone new and having fun with it. Being in the moment and all that. My problem in life is the little part of my brain that says, "Sure, this rocks, but you know three days from now she's gonna say something and you're gonna do the drama dance and..."

I wish I could have that little part of me removed. Tongue cut out, anyway.

Some of us expect and know how to handle or maneuver times like this. Others? Clueless. I don't think the 72 hour rule would apply with me.

I figured as much. This is just the standard defensive/evasive portion of the conversation where the flirting is working on my head and I need to calm down before I start saying stuff. Or asking stuff. Cuz, you know, stuff is dangerous.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
