I like people who...

There are some people in the world that I look at and just know that I'm going to like them.  It might be something small, their first words to me or something that happens after I've known them for weeks.

I like people who...

...have an open heart.

...send mail - like real postcards and real letters.

...have dogs.  If you are a dog person, I will just love you.


...can get lost in a book all day long.  But only if you tell me which book.

...say please and thank you, but even more importantly, excuse me and no thank you.

...can laugh until the wee hours of the morning.

source
...offer me wine, beer or coffee the second I walk in the door - doesn't matter the time of day - sometimes I just need a drink (other times I might need cream cheese wontons, Caramellos or yoga pants.)

...say things like le duh, BOOM or truth bomb.

...eat like I do.  Everyone eats.  It's OK if you're picky or you don't like something.  Order whatever you want, try new things, be picky.  It doesn't matter to me, just enjoy your food like I do.

source
...watch the trashy TV I watch.  Don't act like you're better than that.

...speak their mind.  No matter what.  I have an opinion, but sometimes I don't have the courage to shout my beliefs from the mountaintops.  I support you even if you think differently from me.

...smile all the time and appreciate all the little things.
source
...think working out sucks.  All those people who do it daily and don't admit that it's a struggle - I have a hard time with you.

...are sincere - I think that says it all.

...do nice things for other people.  I really like people who do nice things for other people even if they don't always deserve it.  It's those little moments that can change another person's whole perspective.  Trust me, I've seen it happen.  You never know.

source
...listen to music and share music.

...walk fast.  I can try and walk slow, but it's so hard for me.  I like you better if you go my pace.

...read this blog.  Yep, I just like you a ton.  I feel like I've met some just awesome people out there in the world and it makes me so happy every day.  I write whatever is on my mind and knowing that sometimes other people find that entertaining blows my mind.

What kind of people do you like?  Tell me all about it.  Also, just a reminder that tomorrow is gratitude day, so come and link up with something that you're grateful for.

  3. I definitely just became an avid reader. Everything on this list, I feel the exact same about. Especially the fast walker part. Sometimes, I walk too fast for automatic doors, and I either run into them a little, or have to stop and wait.

    I completely agree with everything on this list.

  4. I totally agree with all of this! Especially the dog people, enjoying your food, and admitting that working out sucks a lot of the time....totally.

  5. I love this post! Love love love. I may have to do my own version. I share a lot of similar loves - if you love to work out, I am not on your wave length. Enjoy your food, offer me drinks, love dogs, yes yes yes.

  6. ALL of this! I think we'd be fast friends if we ever met. I've NEVER heard anyone ever say "truth bomb" though. I love, I need to start using it and see how quickly people pick it up!

  8. Haha, other times you need cream cheese wantons! Yum! I'm horrible at offering drinks when people come over, definitely something I've been working on.

  10. Haha I work out everyday and it IS a struggle... but that doesn't mean I like it any less. I work out BECAUSE I love eating. :) Getting lost in a book, open heart, laughing and yoga pants. All things I can get down with.

  12. we would get along famously! no doubt about it.

  13. Oh, this is so good! Even though I don't have dogs, I love dogs; cats just fit better with our lifestyle right now.

    Working out? What's that?

  14. I love this post for many reasons, mainly because I pretty much could have written it myself.

    I don't trust people who don't like dogs, slow walkers make me murderous, if you don't like to eat or read, we can't be friends.

    I like people who talk to their mom on a regular basis, hold the door for people AND say thank you when you hold the door for them, and remember that you like certain things and buy little things for you that remind them of you. Basically, I want everyone to be like me.

  15. Great list! I must admit, when people say they don't watch the RHOC, I get very confused and really wonder how we'll ever get along.

  16. I think we might be best friends and just not know it yet.
    I stinkin love getting letters in the mail. I just wrote my grandma a letter on Sunday and sent it on Monday. I have one girlfriend that still writes me letters and I'm talking biiig letters. I love it.. and then I get to sit and write her back.. like with a pen and paper. Old school!
    Working out totally does suck, agreed.
    You know ehat grinds MY gears...? When i admit to watching a lot of tv, to which the person replies; Ugh, tv..I have no time for tv. Like who is too good for tv... I mean, really!?
    Enjoyed your post, it got my gears grinding;)

  17. I like people who send real mail too!

  18. I love this. I like you a ton already!

    I like people who have opinions, embrace their individuality, and have fun. Plus more but that seems simplest for now.
