An Evaporating Puddle = My Depth

Wow, I feel really shallow.

Explanation: I often try to decide how I like people, especially those of the male persuasion. I often persuade myself I like certain boys because of certain of their attributes. For example, I liked D- because he was cute, kind of weird, and he happened to like me too. Some other males I like because they are smart, cute, may like me, and are almost as strange as I am. But is this a legitimate reason to like someone? Looks? Smarts? Reciprocity? How shallow can I get? But then, if liking a guy for his attributes is shallow, what isn't? If I love someone just because I love everyone else, that isn't very special is it? But then again, if I love someone because he's useful to me, that isn't very flattering. Here I am arguing over the determinants of love again. It seems I'm doomed to fail to learn from my past.

Another reason I was feeling shallow was because I was thinking how nice it would be to have a boyfriend for like thirty minutes, but no more. I'm really quite neglectful of friends sometimes. Ugh...

Well, at least flirting is still fun.

P.S. Have any of you heard of Neuroticfish? I think it's pretty good, for techno, although all I have is this 7-song CD I got for a dollar at Rasputin's.

Good point about the boys and the liking them and stuff. Very good point.

Hey, I saw you at the Divine Comedy show last night. But only during the show, so I didn't get a chance to say hi.

HI. :)

I like flirting except when flirting with a flirt. Because then you feel like they like you when in actuallity they do that with everyone and you end up making a fool of yourself.

Reciprocity is actually one of my highest in liking womenfolk. Personality is the biggest, also in the high range is open mindedness and possibility of change and trying many many new things as I love doing new and interesting things. Also a love of art and media is a must. I think everyone has their weird list of attributes and even if it's looks and smarts then that is just as important cause if someone were to come along with everything you want except looks and smarts, would you be able to do it? It's hard to figure out, but that's what this whole dating blardy what not is all about right? Maybe? Ah Phooey.
