Dont ask him his astrology sign.

Dont tell him what a jerk your ex was.

Dont go on about how disturbed your kids are.

Dont tell him people say youre kind of crazy.

Are there others?

don't talk about how many guys you have slept with or tell his sister how many.....(my ex sister in law did that....gross, TMI)

don't ask him how much money he makes

don't say his friends are hot

don't say your mom is nuts...

I wouldn't mind being asked my astrology sign!



Heck, it's designed right there on my sandals!

Other "no-no" statements/quesions:

"So, how many kids do you want?"
"Have you ever thought about where the perfect honeymonn would be?"
"You know, I have this thing about midgits and peanut butter"

Watch the eyes glaze over if you mention that you write (especially poetry).

lol@Sharon

Try asking him to read it and watch him run!


But sometimes these things are done deliberately yanno.

*laughing*

Try these:

Ask to borrow money. Tell him you need it to visit your mother in prison who was convicted of castrating your father.

Tell (in vivid detail) all about your recent hemorroid operation. (I had one and I still can't spell it.)

More medical news--tell him that the doc says that Hepatitis is really HARD to pass onto others via sex.

The mention of recent release from rehab/psychiatric facility is always a winner.

(There's more, but I don't have time right now.)

But yeah, sometimes I just like to keep myself amused.

Don't ask how much money he makes Don't ask him about his ex (he is actually still sleeping with) Don't talk about your ex's
And speaking of "sister in laws"....Don't tell him that you went "cruising" one night with your ex sister-in-law and was picking up on some guys just for fun...thinking it was funny. (One of my friends did this and it was awful)

I did all of these except the astrology one (I'm lucky to remember birthdays, much less signs) and he still married me.

Well, maybe not in our *first* conversation ... but it was before I ever met him in person.

Don't ask her what kind of perfume she's wearing so he can give some to his mother.

Don't tell her about how much you have to spend on child support/alimony.

Don't mention dying parents, pets, or children.

Don't tell her that your last wife died in childbirth and how lonely you are.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

If someone should happen to come up and call me Mike, just ignore them.
Addendum   if they should happen to add they are my parole officer, run.

Nice dress, I have one just like it I wear at home.

Want to come up and see my pet cockroaches?

If you order a steak, would you please not order it rare, it reminds of my job on the kill floor at the meatpacking plant   btw, you would you like some free raw beef tongue?

Yes, I do have really small feet

you guys are too much!
aenimal? Courtney Love...very funny, LOL
Sharon, POETRY?? even funnier! LOL
and don't ask what they eat
if s(he) is a meatatarean and you say you are vegetarian, and if s(he) asks if you like working with animals...you MUST, I repeat, MUST quickly run the other way!
I often ask strange or sensitive questions anyway, just to see if he is awake and patient.
