Lately I’ve heard a lot of people from the board and IRL say I’m sweet. I’m a bit confused about this. Is being sweet a good thing or a bad thing? Is it possible to be too sweet? Am I really sweet or is this just a way to sound like you are complementing someone? I would also like to hear from anyone who is familiar from me in chat and on the board to say if they think I’m sweet. I know this is the opposite of a pity party, but I really do want to know.

I only know you from chat/the board… but I’d have to say yeah you’re pretty sweet. I’d say it’s a good thing. People know they can count on you to pick them up and dust them off when they fall down.

I’ll quote the early '90s FOX television show Herman’s Head (a great show, IMHO):

“Women like sweet, they just won’t sleep with it.”

I loved Herman’s Head, and I happen to agree with this little nugget of wisdom passed on by the wonder’s that are sit-com writers.

Oh yeah, and when I saw the thread title, I was thinking it was going to be about that Smiths song about Joan of Arc… darn.

…I was only joking when I said
I’d like to break every tooth in your head…

…I was only joking when I said
by rights you should be bludgeoned in your bed…
I love that song!!!

As do I, Quick. Not that YOU cause me to feel that way Odie! :slight_smile:

::sigh:: I guess my thread is officially hijacked and Nym wasn’t even here :wink:

Yeah, HERMAN’S HEAD really nailed it. It means the women don’t mind having you around to lift heavy stuff and open up the pickle jars and things, but no sex.

I’ve never had a problem with it. Being called “Sweet” hasn’t hampered my ability to get laid. Granted, I’m married, but still. :smiley:

First off, Damn you Rasa and Quicksilver! I now have that song in my head! (And I’m getting college flashbacks…first time I ever heard the song was when two really good friends played it for me.)

Second, yes Odie, you’re sweet. And Rasa nailed it - “People know they can count on you to pick them up and dust them off when they fall down.” hugs and a smooch

As for the Herman’s Head quote…well, I’D sleep with someone who was sweet. But that’s just me.

Of course you’re sweet, Odie! :slight_smile: And it’s a good thing, too.


I love sweet men. I’m married to one. And, yes, I do think you’re a doll. You’re one of the people who I look forward to seeing in chat. :slight_smile:


If it’s good enough for Walter Payton…

Of course you are sweet! You are a good hearted man who shows a true kindness and respect towards your friends.

Yes…you are a sweet man. I always enjoy talking with you in chat and look for you when I’m in there. (big smooches)

So then I’m not the only one who saw the title to this thread and thought it was going to be about Walter Payton.

Sorry, Odie. I think you are an asshole and I only want you for sex :wink:

Ok… OK… I admit it!!! You are sweet too :smiley:

Well, I DID think you were sweet until that crack. :frowning:

Overall, though, you’re a pretty good guy. :slight_smile:
