The next time one of y'all see me...
and I look like I'm even the slightest bit interested in a guy who is a water sign (particularly a Cancer, but Scorpios are bad too), would you please just shoot me in the head. It'll hurt less in the long run. *sigh*

And now it has split us asunder forever. Forever!

14. Oh well,
like I said in a post below...an unhappy fling is still a possibility. 'Cause lord knows I won't learn a damn thing from my most recent experience and I'll end up doing this again anyway. :)

60. Byron I would have said you are a Scorpio or a Pisces
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 06:21 PM by tigereye
OR are you a Cancer like me?

oops sorry. Personally I seem to do better with fire signs myself.

13. Sorry
I did it to myself again recently KNOWING full well that every time I get involved with a Cancer mayhem ensues.

Don't take it personally. Hell, a tortured fling is certainly not out of the question. ;)

"I'm sorry, sir, but I have to shoot Velma in the head now. I hope you understand. Er, you might want to take a step back. Brain matter is hard to clean."

The very first guy who ever broke my heart was a Pisces and I haven't gotten involved with one sinse. Been tormenting myself with Cancers and Scorpios instead.

And it's not that I don't appreciate Cancers. Hell, more than half the men I've ever been involved with have been Cancers. It's just that they all engage in exactly the same behavior that drives me nuts.

social but moody? Domestic - personally, I think the domestic thing is a crock. I am a Cancer, but I was never involved with a Cancer guy.

22. some water signs are like wild animals,
they just need some patience and a little training. seperating them from the herd speeds up the process considerably.

I've ever actually met a Leo in person. Or if I did I didn't know it. I'm thinking really hard trying to remember if I've ever been friends with a Leo and drawing a complete blank. :shrug:

34. Yes you have!
Only I'm a chick. Depends what you thought of me! ;-)

I know what you mean about Scorpios though. Ugh. I'm glad I found myself a nice happy Gemini. They go well with Leos.

Leo ladies, as a Leo I can tell you. NEVER EVER EVER date another Leo, a Scorpio, or a Taurus. If you do, just follow Velma's advice and do that shooting in the head thing.

36. Oh, I know...
None of the Cancers I've known are bad people. Hell, my momma is a Cancer (and I'm sure there's a Freudian explanation just waiting to happen there). I just have a really bad track record with Cancer guys. I can't seem to stay away from them (or Scorpios) either.

Most especially left handed Virgo's. I tell my wife that all the time. Yes, she's a left handed virgo and admits it's a sickness. Never, ever again.

and while they are sweet and sensitive they are also insular sometimes. I get really tired of this tendency the ones I've met seem to have of disappearing for days at a time with no warning.

53. Velma, Velma, Velma
I'm sorry you're hurting, but I know you're smarter than to make judgements about people based on something that they cannot control (like the month of their birth).

Did you know that there have been studies that looked at the birthsigns of married couples who remain married and couples who get divorced... and there was NO correlation between birthsigns and happy marriages as well as no correlation between birthsigns and failed marriages.

58. I have to stay the fuck away from Scorpios.
And that includes both men I'd get involved with and women I'd be close friends with. I can't let a Scorpio get too close to me. Man, they really are their namesake, with that poisonous stinger--and they know exactly where to do the most damage. Whew! Unfortunately, I tend to be drawn to them as to a magnet: I've had at least 4 close encounters of the Scorpian kind (2 of each gender).
