Fave Friday: Mate Traits
November 20th, 2009

Kay, I'm gonna get shmall kine heat for this one from the fellas out dea, but since it's one year anniversary time for yours truly and the lady friend wifey, here's a mushy topic for us to chat about today (sorry boyz!). 😛

There's a new song out on the radio by former American Idol finalist Jason Castro called "Let's Just Fall In Love Again" (see video and lyrics below). It's pretty catchy and, dare I say, cute (*cringe*), but more importantly, the lyrics teach us a nice little lesson about love and how to keep that fire a burnin' with your mate of many years.

We've probably got peeps up in hurr who've been married for decades, newlyweds, and even the singles (heyyyy!) looking for love, so along those lines, let's post our favorite traits of our mates for a fun little Fave Friday listing.

To all y'all singles, your job is funner. List the traits you traditionally look for in a future mate. And fellas, please use "Pager Talk" like 58008 if you're gonna be pervy! Ahahahaha! Nah! Let's do this!

  1. Cute (inside and out)- I may've mentioned this before, but a wise man (my friend) once told me: "Pretty is temporary, cute lasts forever." Word.
  2. Supportive - whatever I wish to pursue (Tin Man, getting my real estate license, interviews with celebs, etc.) she's always so supportive.
  3. Down- is always up for something fun and spontaneous (sports, new restaurants, etc.) and rarely monkus about it. Game for almost anything, as long as it's with me. Awwww.
  4. Tries Hard - no matter what it is, she tries her best to improve and impress.
  5. Well Liked/Lovable- whether it's my friends, family, co-workers, etc., she can get along with any of 'em. And they all loooove her. At least that's what they tell me. 😛

Now for the fun list. If I were to put myself in the place of a single person, I'd probably look for the following:

  1. Smile - shows that they're nice (usually).
  2. Honesty - liars are out like trout.
  3. Genuine- can't stand fakeness.
  4. Thoughtfulness - shows that they're interested in you.
  5. 58008- Bwahahahahaha! Sorry, I just had to.

So what about you bu? No be shame 'cause remember, this post is mushy to begin with. 😛 Post away!

Jason Castro - Let's Just Fall In Love Again

Let's pretend baby
That you've just met me
And I've never seen you before
I'll tell all my friends
That I think you're starin'
And you say the same to yours

And oh, we'll dance around it all night
And then I'll follow you outside
And try to open up my mouth
And nothing comes out right

And I wanna fall in love with you again
I don't have to try
It's so easy
Who needs to pretend?
But because it's so funny
Let's just think about it honey
Let's just fall in love again

I'll call you in three days
Not too soon, not too late
And I'll ask your roommate if you're home
You call me on Thursday
And we'll hang out all day
Then fall asleep on the phone

And oh, I'll hold your hand when we drive
And we'll lose track of all the time
And we'll tell everyone
That we ain't never felt so alive

And I wanna fall in love with you again
I don't have to try
It's so easy who needs to pretend?
But because it's so funny
Let's just think about it honey
Let's just fall in love again

We'll fall disgustingly fast
And we'll stop hangin' out with friends
And they'll be so offended

And I wanna fall in love with you again
I don't have to try
It's so easy
Who needs to pretend?
But because it's so funny
Let's just think about it honey
Let's just fall in love again

Let's just fall in love again
So let's just fall in love again

P.S. For anyone getting married soon, the song above is probably a cute little song for a wedding slideshow or the like. You heard it here first. You're welcome! 😉
P.P.S. If you post something nice about your mate, and they give you a big fat smooch (or more?) as a result, you're also welcome! 😛

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a good weekend y'all, and be sure to tell that special someone you love them! 😉

    @Ed - Tempting but would probably get irkatating if he's so dumb that he can't do anything by himself. 😆

    @kuya.d - The G-man did his student teaching in my history class in high school. I think we scared him away from teaching the big kids though. Had some smart alecks in the class that made it challenging for him. Plus, we would nag him about singing but he never did sing for us.
