Maybe it's not love.

What do you do when you finally meet someone who makes you think out of the box for once? Where you think, "uh... maybe I could make this effort, make a real effort to have a relationship?"

I doubt he likes Prince. He might tolerate Prince but would never love Prince. And frankly? Any guy who loves Prince like I love Prince? Would have to be gay.

So I met this dude... he's kinda sweet. And he would have to put up with Prince and Criss Angel (new hair notwithstanding.) and my love of Steve Buscemi and/or John Malkovitch.

But he has a really, really big gut.

I'm not sure how to deal with mental attraction and a really REALLY big gut.

Tom Waits says it nicely*:

There's a place for us
Somewhere, a place for us
Peace and quiet
....
somewhere

There's a time for us
Some day, a time for us
Time together
Time to spare
Time to learn
Time to care

Someday, somewhere, we'll find a new
way of living
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere

*from West Side Story. Which I've never seen.

(also? Tom does it on purpose, I'm sure: He sings "a plathe for uth"

If he really likes you, he'll put up with those things.
And the gut can be worked on. Cook healthy meals, convince him to go on long romantic walks, tell him you'd like to see him healthier so he stays around for awhile because you dig him. ;)

"dig." Funny... even my son used that word today. "Does he dig you?"

It's the seventies all over again!

Thanks, Kat :)

As for the gut... two words: doggy style.

Louise, I would slap you if I could.

Oooohhhhh...beauty and sexual attraction should never be based on outward appearances. Take a chance...if he kisses like a maniac you will never EVER think about his gut...no matter how big it may be. Go for it!!

I don't know what to say...a tolerance of Prince and whatnot would be worth the gut for me. I mean, my hub puts up with my PMS, so whatever issues I have with him seem kind of lame. Lol That's just me, though.
