Love & Sex Q&A #6

Are you more attracted to people whose personalities are similar to yours or very different?  What differences attract you and why?

That’s a complicated question, because I’m a complicated gal.  I think I’m attracted to people with certain personality traits that are similar to mine.  I also think that those aren’t always the best personality traits to be attracted to.  They are just familiar and comfortable for me.

I have found that I am very attracted to people with personality traits that are completely opposite to mine as well.  Traits such as being outgoing, talkative, and not self-conscience attract me because they tend to make me more open to acting on Continue reading

Beware the man that dates the Preacher’s Daughter!

Beware the man who dates the Preacher’s Daughter!  For once his time is done, he is left a ruined man.  You will know him from the vacant expression on his face when someone mentions redheads or kittens.  A piece of him is changed forever.

Seriously though, I have some weird power that changes men into strange unstable creatures.  It brings out their dark side.  All we need are cheesy costumes and then my life could be a bad comic book.

P.S. Alex Ross is my favorite comic book artist.

Love & Sex Q&A #93

What was the worst heartbreak you ever suffered?  How did it affect your feelings about intimacy and love?  All things considered, do you feel the experience was good or bad for you?

This is a tough one, not because I can’t think of which was the worst heartbreak, but because it was the worst heartbreak.

The worst heartbreak that I ever suffered was when my first real boyfriend didn’t ask me to move to North Carolina to be with him.  I was only 21 and being as young and stupid as I was then, I didn’t realize that it wasn’t that he didn’t want me there.  It wasn’t even his fault.  Later I found out that I had unknowingly left him broken-hearted.  It was all a matter of miscommunication I suppose.  As Willie says,  “regret is just a memory written on my brow and there’s nothing I can do about it now.” 

I never fully recovered from that heartbreak.  It’s followed me for past fifteen years, and will probably haunt me forever.  Over the years I’ve searched for him, found him, and contacted him.  I’ve tried to keep in touch, even trying to meet up with him again for a visit.  I did see him once many years ago and it nearly broke my heart all over again.  I felt so hopeless, because it seemed that we, my soul mate and I, would never be together again.

I’ve tried to put him out of my mind, but he’s always in there somewhere, popping into my thoughts when I least expect it.

He once told me that the song “Romeo & Juliet” by Dire Straits should have been our song.  “It was just that the time was wrong.”  Will the time ever be right?  I will love him till I die.  I know that much for certain.
