Snowflakes and dating

   Written by on September 21, 2017 at 10:28 am

According to the Urban Dictionary Snowflakes are “extremist liberals who get offended by every statement and/or belief that doesn’t exactly match their own. These individuals think they are just as ‘unique’ as snowflakes, when really their feelings are just as fragile.”

Here’s an example. I just watched a (news?) clip where college students were asked, “Is it all right to have racial preferences in dating?”

All but one answered something like, “OMG, of course not.”

The one who said yes came across as a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal.

The correct answer is, “Yes, it is all right to have racial preferences in dating.” It is alright to have height preferences, weight preferences, shape preferences, hair color preferences, eye color preferences, and leg preferences.

It is OK to have breast size preferences, nose size and shape preferences, foot size and shape preferences. It is alright to have preferences of any size shape and color regarding absolutely any physical mental or social issue.  It is reasonable to have preferences on the sound of their voice, their clothes, makeup or how they cut their fingernails.

You can even have political and religious preferences.

You can have preferences from the size and shape of the pinky toenail up to the shade length and texture of hair.  You can have preferences on what and how they eat, how they spend their time, what music they like, their politics, or lack thereof, and absolutely anything you choose.

Pay attention, Snowflakes. When it comes to dating you get to have any preferences you want.  You can have physical preferences. You can have mental preferences. You can have attitude preferences. You can have health preferences. You can have activity preferences.  You can have any preference you choose.

To pretend you don’t have any dating preferences is either an absolute politically correct lie or you are so desperately lonely that you will date anyone who will go out with you, or your social life is a political statement.

On the other hand, you will find out that your most treasured preference is negotiable when you meet someone who makes your heart go pitter-patter in spite of that preference.

My daughter (who is short, or vertically challenged if you are politically correct) met a young man who was everything she wanted. He understood her and he understood her weird jokes and he read the same books and they like the same things. BUT her friends pointed out that he was shorter than she.

When she asked me what I thought, I responded I wouldn’t let a few inches of height keep me from getting to know him better.

Today they have four beautiful, intelligent, witty and charming SHORT boys.

My final point is preferences are valid. You make the choices in who you date for whatever reason you choose.  The person you eventually marry or who becomes the other gene provider for your children is not a matter for political correctness. It is a personal choice.
