    Oh Libs, my heart is crushed. Springsteen came into my life at such a crucial point. His songs carry much sentiment for me. Oh well, to each their own.

    I do admire speedbumps' taste in music, but Mr. Dinahann probably would not go for it.

    I totally bow to your knowledge of Frankie Goes to Hollywood. I can't remember how many times I danced the night away to Relax.

    I like men who are so ultra-conventional, they're unconventional. I don't need a mate to read books I like or watch t.v shows I like ( shudders at the thought ). A nice, stable, good-natured, conservative guy, which I'm with, were so opposite it's scary but it works. He did turn out to have a few quirks, like laundry. Everthing is sent to the dry-cleaners, except for socks, t-shirts etc, but he can not stand to have dirty clothes lying around, so sometimes, I'll put on a t-shirt in the morning, and by the evening he's washed and dried it. He's constantly doing laundry!

    Lotus, please send your man to my house when he has a moment...lord, that's a trait I wish my husband shared. Does he iron, too?

    You're going to have to knock this one off the list, Speedy. The makeup thing, sure, the Frankie Goes to Hollywood is a little odd but not too bad...but we need to know what you guys are thinking ALL THE TIME. Deal with it.

    Maybe you should add to your list, "is knowledgable about hair products".

    No, I use to Iron, but he sends everything to the cleaners that has to be ironed. I haven't ironed since we moved in together.

    Hugely important, speedbump. I know its a good relationship when the quiet times are just as comfortable as the rest of the times.

    Not that I'm looking anytime soon, but unconventional traits I would look for:

    - doesn't run late
    - isn't a workaholic
    - knows the difference between a wrench and set of pliers but doesn't spend their day with those in their hands
    - knows their way around a kitchen
    - knows the little things that make me happy
    - isn't afraid to live today like there might not be a tomorrow
    - someone that is willing to drink wine but can share a pitcher of beer too
    A Bachelor fan til it dies a slow death and oddly enough, A Rock of Love fan...finest hair extensions from Europe and all. ;-)

    I know what you're saying. I indeed share with my mate. I was referring to the times when the girl asks what's wrong and when you say nothing they don't believe it, so they keep asking the question and the next thing you know, the two of you are in a fight over....you guessed it....nothing.
