Trying to figure out how influential "type" is in dating choices. I like... Physically: Dark hair. A hairy chest. Deep, sexy voice. *Dimples* (I have no idea why--hate I have them, love when men do. I literally melt when a cute guy with dimples smiles. :08. A big guy. Other: Accent (especially Southern U.S. and French), Uniforms (Police, EMT/ Paramedic, Military--I met each of my uniform wearing exs while they were on duty. :smile. Good conversationalist. Last five guys I've been romantic with--not including random humps. :wink: All dark hair, brown or hazel eyes 1 EMT, 1 Cop, 1 Marine, (each on duty when we met) 1 Attorney and 1 Other (but extremely smart.) All hairy chests All deep voices 3 had dimples All accented (Staten Island, Upstate NY, Mass/GA/CA hybrid, NJ, Greek) All really intelligent and knowledgeable Obviously, I enjoy dating people with certain characteristics. However, in trying to make changes, I've gone out on a few dates recently, and realized that if the guy doesn't fit my type, there's almost no attraction on my end. Is it possible to date against type?
