Robert's Rules Of Order
No kids, no cats, no redheads, no Disney. These were my friend Hank's rules for dating. You know what? God laughs at rule. The first woman he was serious about (read, slept with) had two kids, four cats, bright red hair that she had fashioned into dreadlocks, and a hatred for Disney. One out of four ain't bad, right? I liked his first girlfriend; she was cool. She was about ten years older than us; she'd had a life, several lovers (both male and female), two failed marriages, a dormant drug addiction, and a really beautiful house with grown up furniture. Around her I felt ready to take out my Cabbage Patch Kid doll.
Given Hank's stellar example of following his own rules, I had my own set but I never articulated them. The only thing that stayed the same was that I didn't follow mine either. What about you guys? Any deal breakers in love? Did you ever go back on your own rules?
