Why NotCarrie Would Be A Good Girlfriend;)

I guess what sparked me to think of this is that I saw this girl I know who is really annoying and I recently found out she's married. Not knowing her husband, I can only hope he is equally annoying because is it fair for an annoying person to take a non-annoying person from the dating pool? No...The answer is no.

Anyway, so I am not annoying. Not annoying would go on the list of "Why NotCarrie Would Be A Good Girlfriend" so, in honor of that, I figured I'd let you know the other things as well.

Why NotCarrie Would Be A Good Girlfriend:

  • Not annoying.
  • You, as my beau, would not be subjected to a lot of NotCarrie family functions or general crap and uncomfortableness. I am quite private about my social life when it comes to my family and you would benefit from this.
  • I'm not an expensive date. Not only do I pay for myself, but I don't expect my expensive taste to be satisfied. What I'm saying is that I like the best things in life, but if I can't buy them myself then I don't really expect them. Make sense?
  • We can make out...a lot.
  • I like many different things: sports, music, tv/movies, traveling, puzzles, sleeping, etc.
  • I like my alone time so I'm definitely not a smotherer.
  • I'm not a big phone person. If you want to call and talk then I'm a good listener, but I don't expect or like to have big phone conversations every night or anything. That being said, I do appreciate an email or text here and there to know you're alive.
  • I don't get sick. That means we can make out more.
  • I don't smoke.
  • I do drink. But not excessively. Neither lush nor straightedge. And I don't drink those frou frou girly drinks.
  • When I like someone, I'm extra generous.
  • I make good pies.
Of course this is all in good fun. It's fun to make a "Why I Rule" list every once in awhile:) Oh, and I left off things like, "I'm hott" and "I use good smelling shampoo" because those are things that you can judge for yourself. Oh, and also, I reserve the right to add to this list whenever I want to. Consider it on going.

Well from that list, I would date you, but then again how much does my opionion really count? I love the list, it got me thinking I should make a list of the reasons "why not to date crazybeautiful".

i think we should all make lists like this. and carry them in our pockets. and then, when boys piss us off, we can look at it, show it to them, and be like, this is why I am not putting up with you! I deserve so much more!

20-Questions said...

Well holy crap, I should use that list. Except for maybe the not smoking thing, although I only do that when I'm doing to drinking thing. (I know that's not an excuse, but it helps me sleep at night) That sounds so much like me it's scary.....

But I completely agree, annoying people shouldn't be allowed to take the non-annoying people out of the pool. I'm sure they're a lovely couple, but he'd better be just as annoying ;)

After all, all the good ones are either taken or they're just not batting for the opposite team....

Ms Fuchsia said...

It freaks me out how much you sound like me. But then I say all those things, meet a guy and go back on just about every count.

(Well, except the making out)

what a novel concept! love the list!

recovering overachiever said...

Good list. ;)
I know plenty of annoying people that are getting married. And, lots of times, the other person isn't annoying. That's why the divorce rate is so high...

Chuckles said...

Hmmmmm.

Sandra Dee said...

This has inspired me to write my own list.

Except it's about why I'm a crappy girlfriend.

I give up. :)

~Moi~ said...

awesome list!
Makes me want to make one myself!
Of course we always have these lists in our heads whenever we see something that makes us go "huh? you mean they have someone? why?"
haha

The Dummy said...

Cute. I think a lot of people would like to see that in someone's list.

Anonymous said...

I think that is a fabulous list and any guy would be lucky to have such a wonderful person in thier life!

Carrie M said...

best list ever!

this inspired me to make my own list, very similar to yours. except i couldn't use the no-smoking thing on mine. but other than that...

NotCarrie said...

CrazyBeautiful- Hah, thanks. I probably could make a "why not to date..." list, too:)

Al- It was def fun to make.

20-Questions- He has to be annoying to deal with this girl. Believe me.

Ms. Fuschia- The mo one is quite important, though.

Style Girl- Woohoo!

Rec. Overachiever- Haha, bust for them, eh?

Chuckles- Hmmmm?

Sandra dee- NO GIVING UP!

Moi- I know. Some people really do suck, ya know?

The Dummy- So you're saying I should start advertising?

DCVita- Thanks!

Carrie m- Everyone should make a list!

Mela said...

We heart Slash 4-ever.

Freckled K said...

My list would be almost identical to yours. Are you sure you aren't one of my split personalities, posting while I think I'm asleep at night?

NotCarrie said...

Mela- Imagine Slash doing the Axl dance. omg!

Freckled k- If anything, I'm the main personality!

Anonymous said...

Any guy would be dumb not to date you! :)

awesome list. I should make one, although it would probably turn into a list of reasons why I'd make a really crap grilfriend =(

Anonymous said...

i love this list. sometimes it's good to remind ourselves again why we would make a good girlfriend. and how the boys are just silly not to realise all this fabulous stuff.

Lindsey said...

That is awesome! I'm everything on that list as well...except for the pies. I make great homemade cookies though. :o)

Excellent, I just might have to make my own list.

Johnny said...

I have a puzzle for you...

Whats in my pants?

:P

:D

I prefer to NEVER let the chick spend her cash on our date. I pay. I was just raised that way. I take the cash out of the stupid future wedding mental reserve in my head. I'm so awesome with money, right? :)

Anonymous said...

Whoa. No, nuh-uh. Girl, real men pay for the date. If you are dating someone who actually lets you pay (unless its a one time thing) you are with a boy child, or a prat.

Inspiring list. . .

Chuckles said...

Isabella Snow - It could also be that these men are not chauvinist jekrs. Equality is a two way street.

NotCarrie said...

I respectfully disagree about the payment part on the date. I guess if I was dating an investment banker who made gazillions then oh yeah, I'd be okay with him paying. But if I were a guy and making crap money, then it wouldn't be cool to have to pay for some chick, no matter how much I liked her. I guess it's something I don't expect, but would really appreciate maybe. ANd it's not some weird women's equality/I can take care of myself thing. Maybe I'll change my tune when I'm older and these guys have had time to make more money;)

Marissa said...

i love this! im making my own list!
happy thanksgiving!

NotCharlotte said...

I usually say that whoever asks the other out on the date pays, but in my experiences, the guy always pays.

Sometimes, it's the high point of the date. Other times, I find other ways to pay them back.

Anonymous said...

Chuckles - Could be. But it isn't.

NotCarrie - I get you, I do. I used to think that way too. By the time a man is my age, he better have sorted himself out and be able to provide.

I don't NEED his money - but at 30 he better be able to pay for dinner and a movie.

NotCarrie said...

That makes total sense Isabella Snow. I guess I think that if I were a guy in my miserable financial situation, it would suck to have to pay for all my dates. But in a few years, I'll be more accepting of those paid dates:)

niels said...

Do you really need anything other than point number 4?

Anonymous said...

I am with several of the others -- I ALWAYS pay for ALL the dates. I simply prefer it ... it is the way I was raised.

But that is a great list. I look for those things in girls I date...

NotCarrie said...

Niels- Amen

Starboard- But what if you were just starting your career or something and money was tight...would you just not date because you couldn't afford to pay for you and your date?

hagrin said...

Sounds good to me - where do I sign up?

Buffy said...

I'm one of those chics who like their alone time as well....love my space.

I'm definitely not a smotherer.

In the past I've been called a cold hearted bitch for this very reason.

Ugh.

Hi NotCarrie,
I have all the qualities you listed as well. I used to wonder why I never ever had a boyfriend despite having the potential of being the perfect at it. It's frustrating to see horrid (though physically attractive) women with all the fantastic men.

Recently though, at age 36, I finally found someone who appreciates all I have to offer! He's incredibly attractive, kind, considerate and fun to be with...and he loves ME!

I guess my point is not to give up. I honestly thought it was too late for me as I am not great looking and getting less great looking every year. Sometimes it just takes a little luck and good timing so get out there and increase your chances, you'll find him yet!
