Devil may care…

I just heard a phrase on TV that brought back a really interesting memory.

Many moons ago while on one of my drunken late night diner invasions with my friends, we were having an interesting and thought provoking discussion about how everyone as a group viewed you in terms of “relationship material.” We each took a turn getting rated and picked apart by three other people with regards to how we are perceived by them. It was actually pretty enlightening up until it all turned on me. They all pretty much said that I was a total player which I didn’t really agree with, but I could understand why they had stated that. I’m naturally very friendly and open with others and a lot of times, it gets mistaken for flirtation. To be honest with you, I can’t really say that I know how to flirt, but I have absolutely no problems in acting friendly towards people. I guess that’s what being a flirt is all about.

Anyway, the last girl to rate me (who I hooked up with shortly thereafter) only said one thing and to this day I can hear it like it was just told to my face. She said, “you have a very devil may care attitude about things and it’s a turn-on for a lot of us.”

WTF??? What does that mean?!?! To this day I don’t get it. I’ve always thought it meant evil. You mean this is what gets your rocks off ladies?

One hundred million dollars...

If someone could shed some light on this, it would be much appreciated since I’m going to freaggin’ obsess over this for a few more days. Gah!

Dunno about the getting rocks off part, but “devil may care attitude” is kind of a racier way of saying you don’t care whether something happens or not.

i.e., you flirt without caring whether or not it will win you the girl. Or you eat what you enjoy because you can. Or… I can’t think tonight. 😀

I think they mean you have a very flip attitude towards life.

*slaps own forehead*

Why did I not do what you did?? *lol* Thanks for the definiteion help there! I can understand what they mean now. =) Whew, I can stop thinking about that..

You know, I am not sure. I guess I’m just always naturally curious of others in that respect or perhaps my recently single status is bringing this all to light. *lol* Maybe I should tone it down a bit. Wouldn’t want others to think I’m some type of horny geek… Oh wait a minute… =)

I think it may be an attractive quality because you just do whatever you want to do. You don’t let others influence you, bog you down, or ruin your spirit. It’s a good quality to have.

Unfortunately, I have nooo idea what that even MIGHT mean.

Sorry!

Aw, no need to tone it down! It makes for interesting reading… 😉

Also, there’s an an implied confidence in having a devil may care attitude. It’s not just that you’re not sweating the little things or are taking a risk or something.

Actually, I’m attracted to that quality in women as well. You are most certainly correct, it’s definitely a good quality to have.

LOL! =)

“Shh! Let me tell you a little story about a man named Shh! Shh! Even before you start. That was a preemptive Shh. Just know I have a whole bag of Shh with your name on it.”

Hmmm, I hear that confidence is a big turn on for women. Actually, confidence in a woman is a big turn on for me as well. =)

I don’t think it’s a sign of being a “horny geek” 🙂 I’m insanely curious about others thoughts and ideas on sex and relationships as well. But, since my newly single status as well, I just don’t give a shit and I will happily read about others! 😉
