My Dating Dealbreakers: Is It Just Me?

I'm so glad that @allischaaff tagged me in this challenge because I feel like I was having this conversation with @buddyesd and @InPlainSight sometime last week.

I have some pretty bizarre dealbreakers, but they still remain dealbreakers! Call me picky, but here they are.

Shoulder/Back Massages

I know. This is probably weird to a lot of you who really appreciate the tension-relieving that a good back or shoulder rub can bring, but I just hate being touched there. I'm not sure why, but it creeps me out beyond reason.

Calls/Texts Too Much

I hate feeling like I'm obligated to be someone's sole source of entertainment just because we're dating. Because of this, whenever a guy texts me or calls me too much, I start getting super turned off. Go make some friends! Get some hobbies! Be free!

Makes Rude Comments About Other's Bodies

Whether it's my body or any of our friends' bodies, it's childish to be making fun of anyone without a 100% ideal body type. An ex-boyfriend lost a lot of weight when he was a teenager, which made him feel entitled to judge other people's sizes, and THAT IS NOT OKAY.

Close-Minded About New Cultures & Experiences

I love learning about different cultures, studying foreign languages, and eating international cuisines - the more 'adventurous', the better. Spice wimps, vegans, and guys who can't turn off their 'America is the best!' for a little while and try something different need not apply.
(Also, look at this dude posing with his paella. He fucking love his paella. Happiest paella-eating boyfriend of all time.)

Hates Going To Museums

As a Museum Studies major, creativity is pretty much my life. It's okay if you're not an artist yourself, and you don't have to LOVE museums, but you have to at least be open to going to museums with me once in a while. They're some of my favorite places to be!

Lies Compulsively

I'm a lenient girl. I can understand if you've said a little lie here or there. When you first want to impress someone, you beef up your 'boyfriend resume' a bit, and things can get a little exaggerated. But don't make it a habit, okay?
So those are my dealbreakers! @InPlainSight @AimeeH @Taijiotter @MissB82, you guys should do this next!!

@allischaaff Thank you, thank you. I love all these Love & Relationship challenges because I feel like it helps me showcase how awkward I am to date.
@InPlainSight Want to know how this guy feels about his paella? CHECK HIS EXCITED FREAKING FACE.
I don't like shoulder massages either...makes me feel icky lol. Also people close minded about others cultures is a HUGE no no. The ones who judge just because it's a little different than what they are used to.
@allischaaff I don't know of anyone who can top @danidee but I will try to put together something that is as close as I can muster.
Yaaassss hahaha I love this @danidee!! I knew yours would be amazing :,) @InPlainSight, think you can top the magnificent @danidee? :D

5 Steps: How To Talk To Your Crush
I believe you, talking to your crush is an uphill task. It takes all your guts to go up to him and strike a conversation and knowing what to say to make him comfortable so he talks to you again is a struggle, but you’re not alone in it. To help you achieve this goal, I’ve 5 powerful step that will help you talk to your crush. #1 Prepare First and foremost, preparation is the key. Invest some time in preparation so that you are confident enough when you finally approach your crush. Imagine taking a math exam without prior practice and exercise, you are bound to fail. Are you not? Similarly, dire preparation is needed to confirm success. Put in thought and time into winning your crush - may be prepare a list of questions to ask your crush. #2 Approach Him It is important to know and understand when and how to approach a guy you have a crush as it can be a bit tricky. You’ve never spoken to him, so it’s best advise that you approach him when you are alone to ensure that your very first interaction is casual and not many people around to distract you. #3 Start A Conversation Next step is to start a conversation which is not OTT and sails between casual talk and I’m interested in you. It can start with a simple ‘Hi’ and you can take it forward by introducing yourself or you can also play smart by asking for help with something as simple as “Hey, what is the way to the library?”. Now that you have his attention, you can introduce yourself. #4 Keep The Conversation Going Having the skill to keep the conversation with your crush is the key to his heart. This very conversation will set the base if he is going to want any future conversations with you or spend time with you. If you are unable to attract or hold his attention to the point that he gets interested, then you have lost your chance and he would probably not want to talk to you again. So, try to be your most interesting self in your unique way. #5 Compliment Him Yes, yes I know, girls are born to take compliments, not give them! But darling, you need to learn the art of complimenting a guy if you want to convert your crush into your soon to be lover. Compliments do take the conversations ahead, just indicate how you guys have so much in common. Hope this helps!
Want a Really Fun Date Night? Get Onboard With These Drinking Games For Two!
Are you looking forward to plan a date which is out of the ordinary? Then what’s better than having a drinking games night. This idea is sure to make an impression and give you a good time. That being said, are you prepared to ditch the typical dinner date for something fun and challenging? This is your way to go. 1. Go fish I’m sure you would have heard of this card game before. It’s a pretty simple game and most of us have tried our hands at this when we were little kids. But you can turn into an adult drinking game by bringing in some liquor. Whenever the other person gets a pair, you go a peg down. Whoever has the maximum matches wins while the loser takes another shot! 2. Never have I ever If you haven’t played this game before, then you’ve seriously missed out on so much fun. This game is a hit at parties and get togethers, but you can also enjoy it on your date nights. This will help you learn more about your partner and see what the two of you share in common. The rules are simple - the game starts with one person saying what they’ve never done before and in case the other person has done that then they drink. 3. Buzz This is one of those games which can pose some serious couple challenges as it involves them to be good at math! Whether you’re cooking dinner together or waiting for it at the restaurant, all you have to do is count. The catch is that everytime you get a multiple of 7, you say ‘Buzz’. Whoever misses, loses! But hey, you drink first and then start over. 4. Two truths, one lie This is another fun game which can be played without alcohol, but drinking makes it so much more fun. I bet, you’ve already played this game at your workplace or at school. All you have to do is tell your date two truths and one lie about yourself and ask them to guess. If they guess it correctly, then you drink and if they fail, then they go down. 5. Mustache and a movie This one is a comical game which will leave the two of you laughing while enjoying a movie. To do this, all you need is to place a fake mustache on your TV at a random and play the movie. Whenever the mustache covers someone’s face at the right spot, you take a drink. Cheers!
