Sense of humor is soooo important to me. I love these two items on musicnerd93's list.
I tend to have a very dry sense of humor. Lots of irony, sarcasm and wordplay. Good witty banter is enthralling to me.
Yeah, absolutely! Most of the guys I've been with do not share my humor at all. All they care about is sex jokes. I mean, I'm not a prude, I don't mind an occaisional dirty joke or dirty word, but if those are the only things in your repeitore, it's just annoying. Plus, they were all too "manly" and self-concious to be goofy with me.
I'm the same way in terms of humor. I prefer irony and play on words, and my sense of humor is kinda dark and, I think one of my friends described it once as, "bizarre." But, I also enjoy childlike games and plain joking around. It makes me smile.
Just how are we defining shallow/close-minded out of interest?
Shallow- Not giving a girl the time of day unless she's got platinum blonde hair, double-D's and no sense of intelligence or selflessness.
Close-minded- Not being able to see something from someone else's perspective. Atleast it's a deal breaker for me because I'm extremely opinionated. It's not really so much the closed mind that turns me off, as it is the whining "Oh you're so stupid, why do you believe like that? I believe like this and that's the only thing anyone should believe."
FWIW, if a person is basically decent, love can cover a multitude of small 'sins.' Especially if you stay aware of your own faults.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
