exhilaration: (me)
Or, Everything You Always Wanted To Know About How To Date Lara

1. Tell me I'm pretty

2. Tell me I'm smart

3. Tell me you love me

That's really all it takes, oh flist mine. (Also, no more starting new memes without finishing the old ones!) I'm easy, and I don't aim high. I like to hear how pretty I am. If you tell me I'm pretty, I'll just agree with you, and it makes me feel good to know that you and I are on the same wavelength and your attractiveness meter is properly calibrated :) Same with being smart. I know I'm smart. I've always known. So if you also know, then perfect, we both have an understanding here. Bonus points if you are impressed - extra bonus points if you are smarter than I am.

Just those three things, peeps, and you can have me... I guess unless I'm already taken (which I am, so this is all kind of hypothetical, isn't it?). In that case, I don't think it would work out very well.

I don't know. I feel quite pathetic now. And a little weird about continuing to list things that would win my heart, or whatever. What does that even mean? Something that would strike my fancy? Intrigue me? Or does it mean an action someone could take, you know, to woo me, or try to "get" me, or whatever? I'm going with the first one, since for the second one, there really isn't anything more than the three things I just said. I was kind of kidding up above there, but kind of not. I've never had someone tell me they love me just to get me to sleep with them... but it would probably work. If someone says "I love you" to me, I might doubt that they really know their own feelings, but I would never assume they were saying it just to say it. And... they'd have me. I really am that easy. But for ten more things...

4. Admire my cleverness when I make extremely dorky references

I would really like that. I often get excited when I get to make a clever comment referencing something like a comic book or sci-fi show or something, but for the most part nobody even gets the references, let alone recognizes my cleverness. If a really dork-ish person were to admire my comments, I'd totally be into that.

5. Play music with me

I like this. If it makes it sound like I am falling for my friend Ashley, well... that's an entry of it's own (I'm not, but I really like having a musical friend) but Bevan does this as well, once in a while. I think he does it just because he knows I like it so much, not particularly because he has an overwhelming desire to make music, but I love it when we do. One day (years ago) we were upstairs at his dad's house, and there is a piano in the living room, and we sat down and played a bunch of sheet music together, one hand each. It was really awesome. I was pretty delighted at the time :)

6. Compliment my clothes (or shoes)

Some compliments make me really uncomfortable. Some don't. Complimenting what I'm wearing is always acceptable and welcome, cause as I have said many times, I didn't get to pick out what kind of features I'd like to have or what sort of body I want, but I do get to pick out my clothing, so those sort of compliments make much more sense to me.

7. Talk with me. Like talk and talk and talk and talk, for hours, and not AT me, and don't just LISTEN to me, actually talk WITH me.

Yeah. I really like to talk. Like really.

8. Don't think I'm a bad person when I say really mean or sarcastic things

I guess what I mean by this is, think the best of me. Don't assume the worst. Know and understand me well enough to know that I don't always mean what I say, and that sometimes my frustrations get the better of me and I come across as much more unkind/stuck up/self-centered than I actually am.

9. Be smart.

I know, I already put "bonus points if you are smarter than me." That would be really nice. But just any type of smart will fit the bill. Intelligence is very, very attractive to me.

10. To really win my heart... I mean, instead of me just saying, oh yeah, I like attention, and I like you, so this will work fine... I don't know. I guess you'd have to do something like... travel across the world with me, and then travel back to stay with me. And figure out how to make me believe that you'll never get tired of me, or decide me and my problems are too much to handle. And make me feel like I am something to you also... that it's not just that you like any attention you can get, that you really want me and only me.

Man, this one was hard. That's why I've been avoiding it I guess.
