do you notice any patterns in the people you date?
 
I've noticed a few things and most of them are
colour blind, a little neurotic, a bit antisocial, impulsive, has terrible memory, doesn't like to try new things, eats only one type of food, is a horrible driver, doesn't really like being outside.....


i must be so bored that i'm making this list.

your turn

Wow, you might want to branch out. That sounds dismal.

____asdfghjkl 03-23-11 07:35 PM

most of it doesn't really show up until later in the relationship.

CbadRider 03-23-11 07:36 PM

All of the people I've dated have been men. Beyond that, they don't have a whole lot of patterns in common.

HigherGround 03-23-11 07:38 PM

All of the women I have dated have had really, really low standards.


















Hey, wait a minute... :notamused:

You've just described the typical American guy, except the 'terrible memory' is a misnomer, it's actually 'convenient memory'.

Yes, they have all been women...mostly.

Everyone I've dated had an artistic talent of some sort. Looks- and ethnicity-wise, they're all over the place, but I tend to be attracted to blue-eyed brunets/brunettes more, even if I don't necessarily date them. Um...what else...oh, they've all been living and breathing.

MillCreek 03-23-11 09:16 PM

I insist that they be women from birth. Just not into the pre or post -operative transsexual thing.

Maybe you should ask yourself why you always seem to be attracted to people like this.

RunningPirate 03-23-11 09:33 PM

They all seem so normal at first...and then.......:eek: Of course, by then, you cannot get Pandora back in the box...

A friend of mine was going through dating issues some years ago, when she came to the conclusion that maybe the relationships kept failing because she kept showing up...

...not saying it's you, but introspection is always a good thing :thumb:

cyclokitty 03-23-11 09:38 PM

They always remind me of my mom.

____asdfghjkl 03-23-11 09:55 PM

yeah, they seem normal at first then they start opening up to me and i'm just like "wut just happened" O_O
they're fun. I know I made a list of negative things about them but there are good things about them...it's just the bad seems to outweigh the good. bleh. none of the things i listed up there reminds me of my dad or am i dating them to find something that i can fix lol.

and yeah they are all men and they are white.

That's probably because they just made the legal driving age. It will get better with time and experience.

There is definitely a shortish, Caucasian, brunette, super-smart trend, though I have gone on a couple of nice dates recently with a Japanese girl.

apclassic9 03-24-11 07:39 AM

maybe you should whittle away at your list one item at a time - for instance, you might change your pick-up line to "Don't you just HATE driving with people who are color-blind?" ... should weed out the color-blind, anyway.

rumrunn6 03-24-11 08:49 AM

can't speak to "dating" but the women I "love" have things in common. they are all creatively talented; have big pretty smiles; sexy (duh) and they all laugh when talking to me. I'm not a "dancer" but these women make me so happy that I want to dance with them.

TheKillerPenguin 03-24-11 09:02 AM

I tend to go after artsy types. The plus side is that they have truly interesting ideas about life and therefore are tons of fun to hang out with and talk to; the minus side is they're all just shy of insane, are often fairly conceited, and are about as flaky as can be.

jsharr 03-24-11 09:19 AM

they all have plaid hair.

Will G 03-24-11 09:26 AM

I have been dating the same person for the last 24 years so, yes, I notice patterns and similarities from one date to the next.

jccaclimber 03-24-11 09:50 AM

My sample size (n=2) is too small to draw trends. Other than both having generally dark hair and being nice people who are shorter than me (I'm 6' tall) there aren't really any similarities. I think the hair thing is coincidence rather than preference.
