    Deal-Breakers:

    - A guy with kids. Before any of you jump down my throat about that, I'm not saying they're bad people. They aren't. I've dated single dads before, though, and it was always a problem. I could go into long, drawn-out stories about it, but I'll spare you all.

    - Dumb guys. They don't have to be a Mensa member, but they have to be able to form an opinion, and argue it well. They absolutely do NOT have to agree with me on stuff like politics and religion, but if they're going to debate me, they have to be able to hold their own.

    - Guys with no sense of humor. Or, to be more exact, guys with a sense of humor really different from mine. If they like slap-sticky, physical comedy (a la Chris Farley), that's fine - they just need to go like it with someone else.

    - Guys who expect me to change somehow after getting together with them. I'll change when I'm ready to change, if ever. Probably never.

    - Guys who can't be brutally honest. I know everyone fibs now and then. I do too. But if I'm constantly catching little white lies, the trust is gone, and so am I.

    - Guys who have hidden misogynistic leanings. I can't tell you people how many guys have underestimated me. It could be a conversation about politics, sports, whatever. The fact that they were at all surprised that I knew what I was talking about was a turn-off -- and very telling.

    On the other hand, I'm totally fine with a lot of things that many women dislike. Body hair? Eh, I don't care. Great looking? Nice bonus, but it means basically nothing to me. Lots of money? Good for you, but I'm more comfortable making my own, or at least contributing. Sitting around in your underwear playing video games? Good, that makes two of us.

    a big to the rude to people thing, not just waiters/waitresses - people in general. If my date doesn't show a kindness towards others that's a big clue.

    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    At that point, you've gotta stop and be up front with her and ask her what the deal is

    I think I'm beginning to see why I'm always single.

    Maybe the problem really IS me...
