    Welcome to today's episode of R.J.'s Baggage!

    Unlike many other dating game-shows, this one is not, I reapeat, NOT, one where you sell your best cheesey one-liners, or your self-perceived strengths and most attractive qualities.. No, no, no...

    This game-show is all about deciding on dating the person out of the three who has the least taxing baggage in YOUR eyes!

    How this show works:

    1)

    Each contestant/poster, must post three examples of their relationship/emotional/personal baggage that is most likely to deter future dating partners should they know them.

    List them in order of least serious, to most. Small, medium and large baggage that you carry in life. BE HONEST- it's better that your future partner knows now than later down the line where only strife and conflcit are to follow upon learning them!


    2)

    Then, in the same post pick whether you accept the baggage of the poster above you or not.

    [EDIT: I have simplified the rules so people playing in 2014 onward just get to choose whether or not you accept the baggage of the person who has posted directly above you.]

    You are under no obligation to accept out of courtesy just because they may have chosen you at an earlier game. Relationships are best when mutually beneficial- not a charity!


    Those who are picked are contestants winners off to a dream date of your choice =D... Those who aren't, try your luck another time- one man's trash is another man's treasure!.

    Choose carefully, this person is going to be the person whom you will form a relationship with- are they worth putting up with their revealed baggage? The TRUTH!!

    YOU DECIDE!


    Examples of past episodes of our show:








    May Eros ever be in your favour!!!

    MAY THE GAMES BEGIN!!

    Not sure if I got it right but I'll give it a shot.
    There aren't 3 guys above me so I won't pick anyone.
    Okay then.. I'll start

    1) I need to stay by myself a few days every week. I also need time to hang out with friends - without you.
    2) I can be socially awkward sometimes and do weird stuff randomly.
    3) I'm a listener not a speaker.

    This is a fun game!

    @amoonhawk
    #1 and 2 is fine, but I am not sure if #3 is realistic. And what happens if you don't get the sex you need? Cheat? lol I am not sure if I want to jump into that, so I may have to pass.

    I accept your baggage

    Small Baggage - I like order and very keen on organization. I can be upset if things are not "my standards" at times.
    Medium Baggage - I am passive aggressive. And if I need to be confrontational that means you have drove me over the edge.
    Large Baggage - I put work above all else and sometimes you may feel like you are sitting in the backseat.

    Woohoo! '' you like me, you REALLY like me!!!' ;D x


    Your baggage isn't too bad, however, I'm not one who likes to read slight emotional cues from my partner instead of him being direct and upfront with me re any arising problems. Not in an atagonistic way, just general, calm and rational conversation.

    Passive aggressive/blown-up frustration dynamics would mean that we'd be doomed as I need somebody more communicative re arising issues as and when.

    Sorry, I don't accept your baggage.


    All the best with neffa!!!!

    Gourry I accept your baggage


    1. I have a terrible temper. I don't back down, and get quite South London aggressive.
    2. I'm rude to those I can't tolerate.
    3. I live at home.

    _SAGE_ said* Le sigh*...

    People READ, the OP. After the third post, everybody is supposed to pick a contestant from the three posters above them.

    It's kind of a crucial part of the game.

    Also, at the posters who are kinda coppong out with pseudo baggage submissions that are actually virtues, pull the other one! We want real BAGGAGE!!

    Amoonhawk: you have to pick a contestant !!!! icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

    May Eros ever be in your favour!


    Love how you are directing this game~ You like order too icon_razz.gif

    I accept Squally's baggage since it doesn't include the unsexy insecurity
    one screams when dumping on an innovative thread.

    As for me:

    1. I move my feet CONSTANTLY while I sleep.
    2. I rarely resist the opportunity for a good wisecrack.
    3. If you smoke, drink a lot, and/or eat meat, you're going to be a
    project for me.

    1. I never drink all of a glass of milk; I leave the little bit. There are bad things down there.

    2. I enjoy being alone. I call physically leaving my room or "shell" as going out.

    3. The past/life has been rough, so I sometimes get bad mental/social anxiety.


    I'll just pick JJ Green because he's the only one who payed any attention icon_lol.gif


    .. you don't drink or eat meat? icon_eek.gif

    Sorry fable. I can't accept your baggage, the first and second ones are no-noes for me.

    I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post my baggage again... so I'll just copy/paste my first post.

    1) I need to stay by myself a few days every week. I also need time to hang out with friends - without you.
    2) I can be socially awkward sometimes and do weird stuff randomly.
    3) I'm a listener not a speaker.

    Gourry, I accept your baggage. All those things are OK, actually.


    My baggage:

    1) I have OCD, but really it's no big deal. Even if you lived with me for ten years, you would never notice it

    2) I'm quite dedicated to my work (TV documentaries) and it takes up a good bit of my time. (Sort of like your #1).

    3) I'm not even remotely mechanically-minded and can't fix things.

    LittleDudewithMuscles baggages are acceptable to me.
    As a matter of fact I don't really see his baggage as baggage~

    Small baggage- I have OCD, not crazy bad, but it might be a bit noticeable.

    Medium Baggage- I enjoy cuddling alot, until its time to actually sleep, then I prefer to be at least less cuddled up together lol.

    Large baggage- Past relationships have left me unable to open up right away to a potential date. I prefer to be friends first, that way its easier to open up about life, and death, in the past.

    Oh and Little Dude, ur baggage feels nice and light. Dont sweat it.

    This is not baggage. Its common sense to me - all three of them~
