Maybe you shouldn't date guys that look like roaches.

Just a thought.

We have #1 in common on list 8. But Thank Goodness I got such a lovely cake dome out of it and you received deep insights on what the "essence of courtship" is according to Sudweeks philosophy. How enlightening that experience was...

PS thanks for accepting my tag. We should be tea and crumpet friends soon:)
