And humble, too
LOL. In the real world (read: not forums), I am "humble" because society requires it.

I didn't say it to brag though; bragging about something you're born with is very lame. It was essential to my point (being that you can even be attractive, and if you dress like s***, you won't likely get noticed).

Re: Clothes make the man

Humility is a little silly if you ask me. Even last night in that Debra Lafave interview, Matt asked her if she was attractive, she shrugged knowing darn well the answer, then he asked some follow up question to try to trap her on the point, and she finally admitted "yes, other people say that i am" or something like that.

For peeks sake, quit walking on eggshells, and just say the truth; yes, Matt, i am attractive. Are you blind?

It depends on the context. Being scruffy and dirty is accepted in the backcountry or on a rockface, at least to outdoorsy woman. In the city, though, you are sadly correct - the right shoes make more of a difference than I usually care to admit.

But a gold chain? Az, say it ain't so!

Do you have any other suggestions for neck jewelry Eridanus? I"m actually interested in this today, because it was just recent that I sort of got onto myself for being so lazy with my dress. So just recently ive really worked on it, and i'm in the process of buying a few nice things to help.

I just figured a bare neck probably isnt as good as maybe a nice chain. I'm also thinking of buying a nice Movado watch too. I just have a swiss army one now.

There's an online personality disorder test somewhere on the internet and i scored very high on narcissisism, but I think its more a test for fun.* Ive read more detailed writeups on the disease, and I dont think i'm pathological or anything; I just show some tendancies here and there.* I hide it well in RL so it isnt a problem (granted, if i'm remembering right, that's another trait, lol).* *

Well, if i can average those, i'm a pretty normal guy;* average is 42, heh.* But the combination of high Antisocial (disorder) and Narcissistic probably isnt a good thing, lol.

swiss army watches just scream "serial killer." If you wear a Movado, you might as well just tattoo "I am gay" on your forehead.

Cool Test AZ

Paranoid |||| 14% 49%
Schizoid |||||||||| 38% 53%
Schizotypal |||||| 26% 53%
Antisocial |||||||||||| 50% 47%
Borderline |||||| 22% 47%
Histrionic |||||| 22% 43%
Narcissistic |||||||||||||| 58% 41%
Avoidant |||| 14% 39%
Dependent |||| 18% 37%
Obsessive-Compulsive |||||||||| 34% 40%
*scores in gray are the average web score
Accuracy:

I guess I am a little bit on the lack of empathy side myself. If the DW dumps me or dies ahead of me, I will go with the Euro look since Azanon assures me it will help get me laid. But no gold chains.

Oh, my sides are killing me.

So where's that place in the forums where we archive classic threads?

And ReWahoo - where do you come up with those links
