This is something that I posted first in Feelings. . .but, I'd like to have a new discussion about it. . .

I've always believed that to really love others, you have to love yourself first.  That being said. . .

WHAT IS THERE ABOUT YOU FOR SOMEONE TO LOVE?

Really look inside yourselves and tell me what there is about you that someone should love.  Is it your sense of humor?  The way that you make cookies?  Your way with kids?  What is it?

For me, there's a lot of things. . . my sense of humour, my outgoing personality. . . and for some, it's my smile. . .

There. . . I've said mine. . . what about you??

Trust and Lust

Hmmm - there's a poem there...

Waft every crest upon your destined sea.
Embrace the Wave of Serendipity,
Lest its elusive arcane ecstasy
Refurl with sail for all eternity.

My intellect, stunning good looks, superb writing talent, and superhuman sense of modesty.  
Thanks for the great thread, this is the short-answer version of my response.

*laughing at Allen's reply!*

Oh now this is interesting...Hmmmmm...Why should someone love me......

I share PMS quite willingly?

I bake sinfully rich chocolate chip cookies

And I'm extremely feminine.  

Oh, and I balance that out with deer hunting.

Hmmmm, Great question Sven.

One thing that have have told me over and over is
how I always put others and their needs/wants before
my own.
I'd rather give than receive kind of attitude I guess.

Hmm..
My loyalty to my friends and the willingness to stand beside them (not behind them unless they ask) in even the strangest of times.

My understanding of things that go beyond my age.

My wish to really know who people are to a depth that scares even me sometimes.

My honesty (and no...here I don't mean complete, because I don't believe anyone is completely and utterly always honest..for if you lie even to yourself, then you are dishonest)

My passion, my intensity, my ability to go between shy and bold at any given time, my need to explore and dust every crevice of life that I possibly can, my restless meandering moments where I'm fluctuating between pain and love, my lessons learned, my faults, my faith in the human race no matter what kind of garbage is out there..WHEW!! I think I need to take a break. LOL! This has been great, Sleepy...err... Sven Pen. Thanks for making me think.  

We're sorry..this heart has been d-i-s-c-o-n-n-e-c-t-e-d. Should you like to hold the line we'll be glad to reconnect you..

Nan, very interesting. . . and if there's a poem there. . . I can't wait to see it!!

Allan, well. . . we already know that you have those. . . why not give us something that isn't so noticeable and doesn't clash with things on my list!!  LOL  

Just a Woman. . . okay. . . an extremely feminine woman who likes to hunt deer. . . hmmmmm. . . does that mean your hunter orange doesn't clash with your rifle???  LOL  

Irie, I've always known that you were a giver. . . but. . . what else???  I know that there's more there. . .  

Temptress, that's some list!!!  It would seem that you know yourself very well!!!

Sven,

I balance out the "hunter orange" with personal intimate accessories.  How else would I attract the bucks?  *innocent smile*

Sven, what a question! Makes you think hard about yourself.
What is there to love about me??

I love to laugh and make others laugh.
I am a gentle person...but I can be a spitfire when provoked.
I am a loyal friend or lover. Once I give my love, it's unconditional and you can't get rid of me.  

Dee

I wish you every happiness and may you always have the best of the good things in life. a brand

I think that I treat people with respect. Don't care what age, color, or religion. It has never mattered, be they poor or well off, I will smile and say hello. I don't expect anything in return.

Gosh...if no one loves me right now, does that mean there is NOTHING to love about me? I would like to be loved for the following:

my sense of humor
my wicked ribaldness
my compassion
my passion
my sense of fashion
(my ability to rhyme at the drop of a hat)
my independence
my ability to give magnificent massages
my tolerance of all things/people/situations

lastly, my 10 million dollars locked away in a vault in Switzerland!

*sigh* Devine, yanno..you could take that massage thing, and run with it. People would love you all over if you started your own massage parlor.

OK Sven, to answer your "More".....

Here are a few "more" things that I have been told that people like about me.

I'm told that I am well balanced.
I'm caring and sweet yet I
stand my ground and won't put up with anyone's poopoo....
I have a well rounded sense of humor....
fun and out going and am
willing to try almost anything.

OK, is that what you were looking for, or did I miss it again?

Goodness... This is a hard one for someone with low self esteem, but I've had a bad day, and I guess could use the boost

Umm...
I guess my red hair is something people like about me.  My intelligence, my musical ability, my ability to really connect with others... my openness, my humor.. hmm.. I'll come back if I think of anymore  
Well, this really is an emotional boost!

Gosh, this is a hard one, especally for a teenage girl! I won't add to the disruption of this thread by saying I can't think of anything, though. I really like my eyes, although I have to get colored contacts to make them the color I want them to be (blue!).



Sharon and Acire, don't you even talk like that!!!! Next time I get on ICQ, I'm going to send you huge lists about what I love about you two!
