A Game of Wits

25 Sep

If there’s one thing I appreciate, its a guy with a sense of humor. I LOVE it all… Flirty conversations with wordplay and sarcastic exchanges…its the stuff I fantasize about.

A little wit goes a long way with me. I guess it has to do with my affinity for flirting writing.

There’s just something very sexy about a guy who knows how to talk the talk without sounding like a walking cheesy pickup line. As Miss Anxiety once referred to it, “brain chemistry”, is a very powerful tool that very few men possess…

I bring this up because I once had the pleasure of exchanging a few witty text messages with a guy who I did end up going on a very different kind of first date with. He was extremely good at wordplay and therefore a worthy opponent in a “game” that I typically excel at.

After a day or so of texting, I decided to see how well he handled a potentially awkward comment.

Behold: (He is green, I am white)


I can be pretty evil sometimes no? Ah, but it’s all in good fun.

As I waited for that to sink in I laughed to myself curious about what his reply might be. Would he cancel the date? Laugh it off? Call my bluff?


Well played my friend….

I immediately burst out laughing because COME ON that stuff’s funny!

Now honestly if I wasn’t into him because of his sense of humor I probably would have been really put off by that kind of suggestive remark.

Anyway the short and short of it is that laughter makes the heart grow fonder… or is that absence? Either way I ended up going out with him and it turned out that he was the one who needed a paper bag over his head. Not that I am shallow or anything, but he really didn’t have the authority to deem Jennifer Aniston as sub par looks wise.

I was willing to go out with him again (solely based on his sense of humor) but he said that he felt I was someone he would have as a best friend and not as a girl friend. Interesting because I was under the impression that the two went hand in hand. It was probably due to an interesting discussion that transpired over dinner, the contents of which will be discussed in a future blog post.

Better for me because I always find it very taxing to wait for his winning personality to progressively make me attracted to him. Its always better when the two qualities are there from the get-go.

To sum:

Wit and humor are a potent combination for a man. If you can handle yourself at a battle of wits with yours truly, you earn major points in my book. And it is well known that points always get you places…

    If a man makes me life, I’m his for life.

    Beg pardon. Make that “If a man makes me LAUGH, I’m his for life.”

      Hahaha I was going to say, if he did make you a life as per your typo (aka a baby) then yea, you are stuck with him for life. Choose wisely 😉
