Socially Unacceptable Post 48: Girlfriend Application

“Your answers will be duly catalogued and considered.”

– Marie

This is the list of questions and deal breakers Marie sent me when we were still getting to know each other, figuring out if we could be girlfriends. I have included my answers.

communication style (frequent or intermittent?)

I would say I am pretty frequent when it comes to communication. For some of the friends I am not as close with we only talk every few weeks, but I stay in close contact with the people that I have close relationships with.

kids (want/don’t want)

I lean toward not having kids because of my poor mental health, but would be willing to work through that if my partner really wanted kids. If I had any kids they would not be biological – they would have to be adopted. No room for negotiation there. I will never have sex even for children. I like kids but don’t need any of my own to be happy.

sex attitude?

Nope. Never. Not going to happen. Sex is gross and I want no part of it

pets (what kind/how many?)

I have a family dog and cat. The dog is some sort of Shepherd mix named Naga, and the cat is a calico named Eva. I like animals but am good with having pets or not having pets.


N/A. I am agnostic and don’t practice any sort of religion. I am open to the possibility of there being some sort of god-figure, but am indifferent in that respect. I left Catholicism and am not looking back.

traveler or homebody?

Homebody all the way. Travel stresses me out immensely, unfortunately.


Not a smoker and never will be.


Not a drinker. Could not drink alcohol even if I wanted to due to meds. I don’t care that much about it.

food/diet (something you care about or just a part of life? specific diet?)

Nothing specific. I am not vegetarian and do not have any specific diet. I don’t like certain foods such as macaroni and cheese though

prefer city or country?

I could never live in a big city. Ever. Country is probably best, but suburbs would work if necessary. As long as it is not a city.

night owl or early bird?

Both? Neither? I am not great at staying up late or waking up early most of the time. But sometimes I stay up and get stuff done late at night, or wake up early and get stuff done.

strict schedule or absolute chaos?

A little of both? I get anxious if I stray too far from my usual routine, but have trouble sticking to a strict schedule. My plans can change in a heartbeat if my symptoms start acting up, but I also sometimes have the same routine every day for days.
