Via my Yahoo homepage, I came across an article about how birth order affects one’s love life.
It was excerpted from the book, “The Birth Order Book” by Kevin Leman, PhD. I must say, what was stated about my birth order was dead on.
I am the youngest of nine and here are some things Dr. Leman says about the youngest siblings of families.
If you are a youngest child…
“You are all about fun…On a typical first date you’ll have your date laughing so hard that water shoots out his or her nose.”
This is true indeed, however while it may seem fun, after years of being spewed upon by cold beer and warm projectile snot, I’ve learned to wear a butcher’s apron and surgical mask during all first dates.
It’s a little awkward for the chick at first, but my humor always overcomes her doubt, undresses her concept of acceptable societal norms, and I remain dry and unsticky.
Dr. Leman continues…
“And forget ho-hum plans like dinner and a movie; you love to do the unexpected, often on the spur of the moment. You’re the type to take someone to a party only to whisper, “Let’s get out of here” two minutes later…”
This is somewhat true as well. I am not big on making plans, however…
As evidenced by my history of having sex on beaches, bars, sidewalks, backseats of cars, meat coolers, stock rooms, and public restrooms, I never feel the need to say, “Let’s get out of here.”
My spontaneity is pretty much comfortable having sex wherever I stand, lay, walk, or pee. I’m cool like that.
Dr. Leman unfortunately goes on to accurately describe my youngest child drawbacks…
“Babies are the least financially dependable,” warns Dr. Leman. That means your date may be stuck picking up the tab when your credit card is maxed out.
Also, some youngest children use that last-born charm and charisma to be a bit, ahem, manipulative…”
Now c’mon Dr. Leman…
I am completely financially dependable. For rest assured, people can depend on me to immediately spend any money that comes my way!! I am financially consistent!!
And what’s with this, using charm and charisma to manipulate others?
Have a wonderful Monday folks, and as always…
