    Yeah!! But she didn't, which was important!

    From this comes one con of dating me: I have lots of special interests I get obsessive over that eventually means I am more serious about that than my significant other. Obsessive = I talk about it a lot and hum/recite facts with one ask. It makes it useful insofar as if you wanted to know the entire cast of a TV show/play/musical I enjoy, I'm p much a human google for that stuff. If not, enduring my interests isn't fab.

    I think it's good to have several interests, then there's a lot of good conversation starters to go from And for someone like me, I'm not the best conversationalist so I like that people would know a lot about their interests to keep the conversation going.

    Me knowing a lot about my interests is good for me but bores those around me most often. My knowledge can range from 'oh this dude was in it' to 'this specific song played during this specific scene in which this specific character did xyz and replayed x amounts of episodes/seasons later during xyz event that mirrored that specific scene'. It's my party trick with my novelty double-jointedness, which is always fun to show off to people who don't expect it.

    I'd be the total opposite to you in the sense that I don't know that much about my interests lol, that's one of my cons. I guess all that info you know would be useful when they're into it as much as you

    The biggest con with me (being serious) is that I am not very emotional and I am very logical. It means I respond to things/situations in quite a dry, analytic way and this has caused problems in the past.

    Tbf I am v good at trivia (I watch Pointless with my mum sometimes and I usually get really obscure answers)
    And yeah. But a lot of the stuff I know is either about musicals or plays (I do drama so I find it easy to memorise lyrics and scripts at length, to the point where in AS drama I was reciting the entire performance of The Pillowman that we did and got glared at multiple times by one of my mates for doing it. But my memory helped me win a drama festival!) or the teen dramas that I like. Not useful for my classes but useful if I meet someone who likes the same stuff as me as it makes it easy to connect over that.

    I used to watch a lot of game shows as well. I still watch it every now and then. You're just showing your passion for it lol, haters gonna hate. You got something for it too!

    Yeah I agree. I don't think it's a bad thing anyway, my interests are photography and travel which are quite generic :lol:

    They're still interests that can be talked about and developed into different routes! Mine have specific routes to follow!

    Pros:

    I will cook for you, look after you emotionally and physically and **** you properly
    I know when to take the lead and when to be a little bit more laid back
    Loyalty to my woman is my strongest trait. I won't be remotely interested in other women.
    We will go on exciting holidays, travel the world and do it in style. (Free business class tickets, anyone?)
    We will wine and dine

    Cons:

    I have insomnia, lol have fun with that
    You will never, ever win an arguement with me. Ever.
    I won't skip gym for you.
    I won't watch your crappy films or listen to your **** music, sorry .
    I'm stubborn, as you can tell.
    I'm very tactile, so if you're not really into PDA then, well...sucks to be you.
    I'm not massively romantic. I'll buy you nice gifts and display nice gestures, but there probably won't be any nice words to go along with it. Thoughts there though, don't worry.
    I probably won't tell you 'I love you' for a very, very long time. So if you say it to me after sex after like, 4 months of being together I will laugh at you and not say it back.
    apparently we are the same person, at least on cons (exept that gym thing)
