8-always sad/depressed/angry because of a secret "problem" she has
9-any kind of fascination/recurring interest in bowel movements
10-Every story starts with "I wish I were dead" and ends with "and that's why I hate men."
11-facial scars, prison stories, or any reference to a "pimp."
12-not being 100% devoted and obsessed with me.
Funny...and GROSS list!!

I just disagree with "facial scars." Excessive scarring could be bad, but one is okay...I think it makes a guy seem kind of sweetly vulnerable. Maybe it's just me, but if the guy I'm with has a scar on his face, I always want to gently kiss him right there. *Facial scars are heart melters*

Could depend on the whole package. I once worked with a really beautiful young woman--she looked like an Hispanic Paulina Poriskova (Sp??) but she had a thin white scar across her cheek. I thought it made her more approachable and she didn't seem to have any trouble attracting men.

(Now that I think about it, I'm not sure that is the model's name--she was big in the 80's and married Ric O'Casek.)

Yep, that's her name. She spells it "Porizkova", that's the only difference, so you were right. She's a very beautiful woman.

Definitely when it's time to play the gender trivia game, the two places to check are hands and neck...

I can deal with a small facial imperfection/thing white scar...but what I am talking about is a "Seal" type scar (the singer). That don't work!

Yup, that's her!

Paulina Porizkova - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And yes, a big, frightening, knife-fight scar on a female's face might be off-putting, but I can see how "thin white scar across her cheek" might make her seem more approachable.

I first realized someone had lied to me about their age when their numbers weren't adding up. For example: If you and your siblings were all born in a 5-year period, how can you now be 12 years younger than the oldest child?

Another red flag (as if one is necessary after being caught in that lie) is him trying to say that he actually *wanted* you to catch him and that's why he was so stupid as to screw up his siblings' ages like that.

If you're on a date with someone and the sound of a bell makes them start (jump) like they're wanting to change classes with the ring of a bell, it might be time to ask for a driver's license. Don't take their word for it.

Whispering to you on the phone. Yes, it may be that he's trying to be romantic, but it could also be he's in his bedroom at his mother's house and has yet to move out "for real".

If you're on a first date and the guy says something about having children with you (and it's not in a joking way)....

If he can't tell you where he's been for the past 5 to 7 years, that might be a red flag. ("Getting out early for good behavior" won't bandage that wound, lol.)

If he likes stuffed animals. Probably no one else finds this a red flag, but for me it is one.

I believe though that Seal's scars came from some kind of political torture in his native country when he was a child. Although just looking at scars like that might be a turnoff, I think the story behind those scars and the man who overcame such adversity would be very very attractive on the inside and those scars would mean nothing other than strength and character to me.


OK- I was incorrect- I just looked him up and his scars are actually a result of Lupus. But there is something so inherently good about that man- an inner light that shines and I really don't notice his scars.
