    Why, could it be? A thread for who 8s are drawn to? Well, don't mind if I do!

    I think there are three categories for me.

    The first is guys that hold no interest for me whatsoever. That covers 2s and 5s.

    The second is guys who I like the idea of, but for whatever reason couldn't actually take the plunge with (aka 1s, 7s and 8s).

    Then the third category is that of men that actually tend to draw me. The majority of them have been along the 3,6,9 triangle. My most significant relationships have been with those three types, and I will probably continue to bounce along it until I end up married to one.

    4s are in a special category of individuals who I find myself elementally attracted to, but have never seemed to be able to make it work with romantically. That said, I wouldn't be opposed to a couple of more go rounds with that particular type.

    for some reason I tend to chase 1s, 2s and 6s... something about fussy men makes me all hot for some completely unknown reason

    nobody that I really, truly dislike, though I can say that it's a toss up as to whether or not I've respected 3 bosses that I've had in the past... I only liked the one who had a real backbone even though I thought he was an asshole as well... the other two seemed like they'd say and do anything in order to stay in charge and I can't go with that probably not the healthiest examples there

    I don't like the more dramatic 4s in the least, but I like the ones who can control their emotions a bit, or at least don't spill them all over me all of the time! I don't really like ANYONE who's all sticky emotional regardless of type!

    anyone else I'm fairly neutral to... I like other 8s as friends, but I don't think that I could date one... that would be asking for trouble! but then again, who knows...

    thought I'd answer for your curiosity experiment, even though I don't really like judging people based on numbers or letters!

    Wow. Are there really no more 8s on the board at this point? @DiscoBiscuit, what's your take?

    Been crazy busy with work and the internet's been down at home.

    I'll try to get back to this once everything levels out.

    In theory, 9s are really attractive to me, but I don't know how it'd work in practice at all.
    7s seem to become close friends very easily.

    I think the only type I tend to reel away from is 1s. I'm unsure of why this is the case yet, but they almost speak another language to me.

    Also, whatever types James Harrison and JJ Watt are. :3

    9s are nice. I dated one for about a year. The passivity became troublesome after a while, though. I started to crave more friction, and a partner that I didn't have to handle with kid gloves.

    I understand that 9s are the most common partner for female 8s, however.

    Girl, you know all the right words to a men's heart.
