Answering People's Comments

If you're a Christian, you should be loving, not condemning thy neighbor.

See my previous entry, sarcasm is for smart people. Subtlety is as well. Some people just don't get things unless they're walloped over the head with a clue-by-four.

If I had wanted a sex toy or any of the other things I mentioned, I would have obtained them already. The internet and Canada are wonderful things. I was being facetious.

My lists of soul mate wants and not wants was very reasonable. Are you telling me there are people who look for qualities such as

1) Looks like a rhinoceros (on a good day)
2) Can't be peeled off the couch
3) Hates kids and animals
4) sour puss, half empty attitude
5) doesn't bathe, picks nose in public
6) At least a foot shorter than I am
7) Hates learning anything, won't crack a book unless forced to at gunpoint
8) Communicates by grunting
9) Thinks romance is for sissies
10) Won't lift a finger to help


Interestingly enough, I got a great book on the side of the road today. It's called "If you like Pina Coladas ... The humor and weirdness of personal ads"

My favorite of the moment is:

SWM, 24, Wile E. Coyote type supergenius: eclectic, creative, and complete with existential angst. You: light hearted road runner type, minus the cruelty, with a smiling appreciation for all my ridiculous schemes. My heart is a giant magnet and for once you actually ate the birdseed full of ball bearings. Bzzt! Clank!

I don't believe people necessarily look for those qualities in others. I do believe things are not always as they seem at first and you need to be prepared for when the mask comes off. Life is not all peaches and cream; neither are relationships.

Was someone codemning and not loving enough for you? Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black!

I did not see anyone codemning anyone here, except in the original post by Heather. You have to be prepared for people to disagree with you if you post such pigeon-holed comments. No one should get their feelings hurt. Comments are merely observations based on the previous post.

Does this mean I SHOULDN'T forward pics of my boys?? One has a red rag top ( his car not him)

Listen, Heather is the kindest, most intelligent, skilled person I know. I could go on and on about her many qualities, but I won’t. Heather is the type of person you need to meet in person and talk with to understand how truly great she is. If Heather has a list of likes and dislikes when it comes to her “soul mate”, then we should all follow her lead. We might as well get used to it, she is going to rule the world some day. Trust me, it will be a better place. Did I mention she has a great smile and is drop dead gorgeous? That’s true to.

Perhaps you idolize Heather because you are socially challenged and don't have much of a basis for comparison. Maybe you should get out more.

I think some of you are just pissed because you don't fit the list.

I never realized people could so misunderstand you or be so clueless until you enabled comments. Before, the only people who wrote were willing to send a personal email and sign it. Annonymous comments are great for people too mean and nasty or plain ol' dumb to write an email and too afraid to sign it. Mom ;-)

You have to be socially challenged to work where I do and a little insane. But that is neither here nor there. Heather, don’t buy into any of this. Just keep being who you are. I still believe you are the sweetest person I know. Never mind the fact I may be socially challenged.

Thought you had to have a journal to post a comment with a name. Anyway, I have the characteristics on Heather's list, but I am not so sure she would meet my list of requirements.

Oh sheesh, some people need to lighten up! I have followed Heathers "progress" for a while now, ever since I met her mom on a yahoo group and checked out the farm site. I think she is an amazing girl, one I wish I could have been like and one I hope my kids grow up to be like. I thought her list was great and honest. Most people would not admit they have that 'ideal' mate list in their minds. I know I did, and met a wonderful guy who met most of them. However, judging from what I know of her, I am sure she will just rise about all this petty stuff and keeping on going full force, and I say more power to her. If you don't like what you read, go read somewhere else.

You sure preach Christianity when you have no other leg to stand on, eh? :p

Why go somewhere else when this is so ridiculous and entertaining? From what I see here, if you have been tracking Heather's progress through her mother's eyes, then you should notice the subtle bias.

SUBTLE???? I'm laughing hysterically here ;-) I love Heather with all my heart and soul. I wish I could have been more like her when I was young. Duh!!!!! Of course I'm her biggest fan! ;-p Mom ;-)

Being able to read and post comments on Heathers blogspot is great!!! Wendy, keep on just being you ( but hopefully feel better! ), you have done a great job raising Heather, your love shines through. But what does surprise me is that people were surprised or at least felt the need to comment on Heathers Blog entries, have you not been reading her entries for the last year or so ? What made you think that she wouldnt have an idea of what she was looking for in a boyfriend ? And if my impression of Heather is anything close to being right she will not settle (and nor does she deserve) anything less than what makes her happy.

Everybody chill! Who cares if Heather has a list: she is just a kid! She hasn't even gotten out and experienced life yet, without mom's leash I mean. Eventually she will be able to make up her mind for herself without needing mom and everyone else's approval and words of encouragement. Geez!

Cracks me up. This whole debate. The fact that mom had to call out the reinforcements. How trivial this all is. Just live and let live in the backwoods hole in Vermont, where the gumdrops fall like rain, the trees are made of lollipops, and the love flows like maple syrup. I am *scared* of this new world order and prefer to remain anonymous lest my family and friends be persecuted by Heather and her small team of gingerbread men. LOL Now I am rolling on the floor laughing!

Hey, that is my list!! I found him first! He doesn't look like a rhino though........more like a monkey's butt.

I think they all start to resemble certain qualities on that list after you marry them. But, I definitely think you should have seen the whole monkey's butt thing up front. Just a better reason to keep those spectacle's on at all times, to avoid situations such as these. lol

Anonymous said...

Yes, it is true. At once I also had a ideal wanted list for my man. But people evolve (forwards and backwards) and your list is forced to evolve also. You realize that the more you live. Don't worry, we don't "mate" anymore. No mini monkey butts! LOL!
