I'm a very independent person. Some men find that threatening

Low self confidence is my big thing that guys have complained about.

Odd... I would have though it would be the fact that I'm really moody

Seems they accept that just fine... lol

Oh, this one's easy. Sarcasm and moodiness. One min I can be full of laughter, and the next I can be lost in a sea of thought... then laughter again :). The sarcasm can be rather hurtful at times though. I have to learn to be more sensitive.

Repeat after me: "I am sensitive, I am sensitive, I am sensitive... OWWWW! that hurt"

just one? when I have so many?

I'm capable and I'm better at guy stuff than most guys, takes a man really secure in his own abiilities to handle this.

I have an IQ that approaches 160....again tough for insecure men to take.

I'm blunt , sarcastic and cut right to the chase.....have no tolerance for BS

I'm easily irritated by noise.....a kid with a dorito package in the backseat of a car could cause a meltdown :D

I refuse to argue.....if a partner can't communicate with me like an adult, I just walk out without a word. People who raise their voice to me, disrespect me, etc. lose the privledge of being in my company...PERIOD. This would drive a "yeller" insane.


I'm sure any of my exes could get you a longer list

Hopefully nothing, because if they can't compromise there will be bickering and resentment. These things should be disclosed before making a commitment.

(searches momentarily for something real cool about himself that he can claim is a "disadvantage"...)

sigh I'll have to go with a real answer. I tend to over analyse stuff.

Also I'm a great big flake.

People don't appreciate honesty, they just say they do. What most people seem to want when they say they want an honest person is a tactful person. But tact is very rarely honest, at leats in the purest sense of the word.

Only when you are honest about everything and everyone accept them.

She asks you: "why do my co-workers never tell me their dirt like they do each other?"

YOu say: " Because they know you will use it as leverage over them"

Truth..but..she will leave..and angry..and probably hate you for saying so.

*shrugs*

YOu ask:

I answer.

(all options, mind you..but...some of those possible answers [and probably some ofr the likely ones], may be a hrash slap in the face)

Heck, slaps in faces have been known to save lives.

(and end many a relationship)

And I agree. I am very tactful, however, sometimes you have to be straight up..blunt..and true.

THIS is the way it is.

My fiancee is brutally honest, just like me. It's kind of interesting.

Her: Do these jeans make my ass look fat?

Me: They don't make your ass LOOK fat.

Her: ***hole. (she knows me too well.. whenever I try to nail her with a double-entendre she knows to assume the worst, hehe)

Me: Touche.

(followed by rough sex all night)

True story. Someday I'm going to write a book about our verbal foreplay.

That I stupidly often blurt out whatever is on my mind, with frequently horrendous results (such as being chased by a mob.....)

I tend to be right more than I'm wrong, which can irritate those that aren't knowledgeable and worse, I can back it up with factual information, hehe.
