    So I'm walking down the street the other day. Walking in union square and as I'm walking pass a store window I glance out the corner of my eye and quickly look at the window and say "oh sh*t he's cute". Then I realized "omg that's just me". I'm SOOOO not conceited like that

    After that ordeal I started thinking would I date myself? My stock answer was No. Then I started looking around (as I'm walking in Chelsea) and noticing these couples... looking the same...talking the same...built the same..acting the same.


    For me no I don't think I could date myself because if I date a person that was so much like me I would start noticing my flaws and get annoyed with the other guy.


    So my question is do you think you can date someone that is so much like yourself?


    Isn't the whole fun part of it is dating someone that is somewhat opposite of you?

    I know the old saying is "opposites attract". But they forget to add the second part "but similars stay together". I know of at least two couples that were opposites and got married. Their marriages were a living hell, they were just too different.

    I personally would never want to date someone that had many of my specific characteristics, I would probably kill the person! icon_lol.gif

    But some similar personality characteristics and interests are good in a relationship.

    I did that once standing in line waiting to order food. I thought I was checking out the guy in line infront of me, until I realized it was my reflection in the glass I was looking at.

    Would I date myself? Hell no...I'd kill me.

    I doubt it. I like different people, to learn and appreciate what others have to offer.

    No. I'm already sleeping with myself. We're fuckbuddies but not LTR material. icon_wink.gif

    Seriously, no. I'd drive myself crazy. icon_razz.gif

    LOL! Two bottoms definitely do not make a top.

    Why would I want to date someone who is exactly like me in style, personality, etc.? I would go insane!

    Would I date myself - providing I was someone else? Oh heck yes! I consider myself cream of the crop!

    Hahahahaha - God does that sound self-serving!

    No way. Different types intrigue me too much. There are certain similar appreciations that create a comfort zone, but I also need the opposite qualities in him so I can lay back at night and look down at him smiling to myself knowing he isn't predictable.

    He challenges me and keeps me on my toes. I challenge him and even frustrate him at times. His difference's give to me what I need. I didn't think I needed it, but at that moment looking down at him late at night in the dark I get it. It works.

    We are opposites but yet we have some common things as well. We are each other's final piece in our unique puzzles.

    you think you're great
    you think you're grand
    you go to the movies
    and hold your hand
    you put your arms
    around your waist
    and when you get fresh
    you slap your face

    sorry to buck the trend here:

    yes. i would date myself. i'm really nice, generous, and sensitive. even though i fuck up constantly i try to be better. i work hard. i have a nice ass: if i could bend around like that, i'd definitely hit it.

    Horrors, no. I'm not physically my type at all. Beyond that, I already tend to be too competitive when it comes to similarities. I'd wear myself to death. And I'd hate to have to put up with my libido.

    i've been dating myself for a while now, and its going well enough. nice dinners out with myself, trips to the mall or to historic downtown Annapolis with myself, movies with myself, sweet little gifts to let me know i care... big ones too on occasion- i'm pretty good company :p really though, i feel like im settling, cause frankly, there isn't much to talk about, and that gets old. the sex isn't very good either- its been very redundant and routine. and there's not nearly enough cuddling..

    i think i can do better lol







    honestly though, in serious answer to the question: i couldn't. its not because i don't think anyone would be lucky to have me :p lol- i just wouldn't want to date someone with the same needs and interests i have- i'd rather be with someone who compliments me and is compatible in the opposits-attract-kinda-way for the sake of interesting dynamics, stimulating conversation, new experiences, and great sex; two bottoms in the same bed make for an awkward time lol
