The most interesting things about a woman are her mystery, her eyes and her sense of humor. The latter being important because I would be otherwise dateless. There are other obvious qualities that one considers, but the above three qualities do not deteriorate over time.
Without question, all relationships begin with the eyes. Someone catches your fancy and under most circumstances, the relationship begins. It can end abruptly when one may say, "Hi, my name's Jimmy" and the response (among others) is, "You must be very proud."
But sooner or later even a blind squirrel finds an acorn and the relationship continues. The next few dates are are usually of a physical nature (whether in actuality or thought).
Once one has satisfied the inquisitive nature of that natural response, the relationship may or may not bloom (In doggie speak, this usually is referred to sticking one's nose into another one's business).
Interactions usually determine the theoretical length of the relationship. A commonality in various thoughts and beliefs begin to pare and shape the future of the relationship.
Although one's looks is important to most people, I find myself considering same and looking past that to their mystery. Predictabilty usually bores me over time, in spite of other contributing and attractive (you'll excuse the expression, "assets"), the women in my mind are on par with a Lauren Bacall.
My tastes in women are easily observed by taking a trip down memory lane on the sidebar of my journal. Most of the restraining orders have expired......
Mystery and "those eyes" are usually my cup of tea although, admittedly, my spiritual counselor, Johnnie Walker Black, has encouraged and led me down different paths over the years. Sometimes, it just feels like the right thing to do.
The moral of the story? For every Jack there's a Jill and assuming most things happen with good intentions, my advice is, "Whatever floats your boat......"
