Something To Think About... And Then Some...
Anyway, I was watching another one of those weird matchmaking programmes from China again, and the hosts had the contestants (I feel that I shouldn't call them contestants, matchmaking is serious business, but I don't know what else to call them) write out the qualities they want in the opposite sex. And these people really put their backs into it. Just watch them go at it. One girl had like 3 full pages. One of the guys was actually quite dashing, rather tanned, built like a swimmer, is actually a farmer, and I think he has a Masters in something that I cannot quite make out. Sounded like nong shang ji ye guang li ye. I don't know, I can't really decipher the accent. Hmm, imagine having a Masters and cultivating corns. Maybe his Masters is in cultivating stuffs, corn, rice, maize, barley. Cool!
Okay, so anyway, I thought about what I might write if I am the one being asked, although I don't think I will ever join a matchmaking program on TV. The camera adds 10 pounds, and I already look like I have ten thousand million cameras on me, so I would really rather not.
Alright, so here's a rough idea of what I may write, which is totally not accurate. You will see why.
a) Nice. I cannot abide someone who is mean to people, animals, insects, reptiles, you get the idea. But I do think I kinda like the bad boy types, they can be very attractive and charming. Oh the edge...
b) Tall. Preferable, but I can totally go out with someone who is shorter than me ala Victor the short acrobat. He is only up to my shoulder, but nice bod.
c) Funny and interesting. And preferably the witty kinda funny and not the weird kind. Also interesting in the sense of being deep, not I-smell-burnt-plastics kinda interesting. People die from stuffs like that. But I guess it's not really that necessary because I once liked this guy who is really boring. His favourite book is something something Economics. He calls it a "challenging read". I cannot imagine any book with the word "economics" in its title be anything but "challenging". And he is really not that funny.
d) Okay, I am getting bored, so I am not going to go on.
Hmm, basically, coming up with a list is stupid. I sincerely believe that if you are destined to be with someone, you will be. Even if he's missing an eyeball or farts when he sneezes. Oh, I know this person. So, any takers? =P
