What is an "Oh-No-No" List, you may ask?
Well, Tommy Fresh, in his infinite wisdom, made up a list of things that are essentially dealbreakers in a relationship. In addition to being totally clueless about 90s R&B, other Oh-No-Nos for Tom include sleeping on anything less than 800 thread count sheets and a complete lack of interest for Paul Walker movies.
|Jersey knit sheets?!? DUNZO|
I KNEW I had written my very own list at some point, and after a search through a few of my old journals (because that word is more mature than "diary"), I found the list I wrote after a breakup over four years ago. My 22 year old self considered critter shorts, popped collars, and men who don't like dogs as HUGE Oh No Nos. (In case you're wondering, the Mister met all of these important standards.)
In the spirit of this tremendous idea, I've come up with a new Oh-No-No list for your weekend reading. Ladies, take heed--these come from years of dating frogs. Don't make the same mistakes!
1. A cheapskate
This happened--we were going to a movie theater that served dinner (dinner & a movie, duh), but he first pulled into the McDonald's drive-thru so we wouldn't be that hungry and have to order food at the theater.
Look, your POI (Person of Interest, keep up), doesn't have to love Harry Potter the way you do (i.e., you love him so much you could just THROW UP), he just needs to appreciate your hobbies and indulge you in your fantasy of one day receiving that life-changing letter from Hogwarts.
3. Texting ONLY when drunk
Ladies, I'm not one to judge if you're at that point in your life when you just don't mind that your love life is centered around prime drinking hours. We've all been there. But, if you're looking for some serious commitment, you probably need to let it go if the only time he texts is between the hours of 9pm-3am, Thursday-Saturday.
|You aren't the only one he's a-textin'.|
This also happened to me. I realize this sounds like the opening of a Law & Order: SVU episode, but I didn't feel threatened (I also had five other friends with me that night, one of them being roughly the size of a lumberjack). This story is its own post, that I promise to tell someday, but the point is if he's a great catch, he will wait his turn; otherwise I recommend calling the police or making good use of your pepper spray.
5. Mean girls
And mean guys. Any person who routinely drives you to consuming a half gallon of cookie dough ice ream is not a person who needs to stick around.
6. Wearing sunglasses on a string
7. Weird fascination with Kanye West
8. Misuse of "you're" and "your." (It should also be noted that "ur" is not a substitute for either one of those words.)
|Never under any circumstances use "ur."|
10. Has ever uttered the sentiment "You know, I don't really care for Taco Bell."
So tell me, what are your Oh-No-Nos? Share with me, either by commenting or contacting me, and I will compile a Part Two--Reader's Choice!
