Perhaps it is me with unrealistic expectations but personally, intelligence is hot. No, not the Masters or doctorate type, in fact if you haven’t gone to a university I wont penalise you either, but a man has to have a basic level of intelligence for me to be attracted to him…looks won’t hurt but they can only get you so far.
And before all the male readers chirp in here I hope the same goes if the tables are turned. It would be terribly disheartening if you were only interested in dumb blondes that have big tits with an IQ of minus five.
First and foremost must be grammar and spelling, I know I am not perfect here myself but if you cannot spell basic words that are used on a daily basis properly I might have to shoot and bury you in an undisclosed location. Trust me, even your looks will not get you too far when it comes to this. Incorrect grammar and spelling is like being rubbed the wrong way on a cheese grater. In fact I would rather have my skin peeled and grated off by a cheese grater and then have some vinegar poured on my open wounds than deal with your shitty spelling.
And there is virtually no excuse for horrid spelling these days. Smart phones and computer programmes are todays’ primary source of communication and there is a wonderful feature called SPELL CHECK. Use it. Your ignorance and/or your choice not to use it makes you a dumbass not a rebel.
Intelligent people are also funny. They know humour. The comedy legends of this world know how to make one laugh using insinuation, sarcasm, ambiguity, paradox and all the other types of humour to make one laugh. A great example of this is the very first Shrek movie. Where the children were amused but the parents even more so, who can forget Lord Farkquaads’ enormous castle and Shrek smirking “You think he is compensating for something?”.
You better make me laugh dammit…but don’t throw fifty memorised jokes at me. After I have heard it the fifth time it becomes stale, like you.
Well read is also a must. Whether it is fiction or non fiction. And be honest about the fact that you enjoy reading, don’t lie and say you love reading and all I find in your house is a stack of Men’s Health and Playboy. Those are picture books asshole.
I also can’t stand thinly veiled lies, even outright ones. You will be caught out.
Bigotry, sexism and racism are right up there in the douchbaggery catalogues.
We live in a beautiful country where we are all trying to do better for ourselves and as far as I am concerned if you cannot say that you are trying your best to do good, or make good with everyone we live with in this country then you are STUPID. We are all people.
Okay…I am judging stupid people here, but really, some things are intolerable. We all have the opportunity to learn and grow and in a world of constant change I have very little time for those you choose not to do so but will stick to antiquated and outdated beliefs.
I also can’t stand plagiarism, if it is not your work, do not try to pass it off as your own. Use quotation marks and credit the person that did the work. Up there is repetition. Don’t fucking regurgitate old work in an effort to look smart. All you are saying is that you have used up all your talent. It is cute but you will be losing points with me.
