Never Date A Guy Named Slick



I have very few hard fast rules in life, outside of the obvious "don't put that rat poison next to the cornstarch" and "don't mix up the olive oil with the castor oil".

One hard and fast rule I have is to never date a guy named Slick. I would strongly suggest that none of you do either. I taught my daughter from the time she was eleven that was a rule to live by. Sheila did go out with a loser named Tad in high school, but even dull Tad was a far cry from Slick.

I don't care if Slick is an ex-priest or a mega-millionaire philanthropist, you should still steer clear of him. Now, you may ask, what if Slick is the name his mother gave him? How can we penalize him for using his given name?

Think about it Ladies. Do you want that woman as your Mother-In- Law?

  1. Hmm...I think I dated a Slick or two in "Tom" or "Jerry"'s clothing...

  4. I have a rule against dating women who love to brag about what a b*tch they are. Never saw what was so appealing about that.

    Also, I wouldn't date anyone named Slick either. Good rule to go by.

  5. Jay, I too wonder about the charm of a self proclaimed "killer bitch from Hell". Do you know, honestly, the biggest turn on to me has always been somebody who likes me! Damn that makes things easy!

    Just don't go dating a Jezebele, Jay. Could be kind of the same thing.

  6. I dated a Slick once and you are absolutely right. It was a name he gave himself which should have been the red flag that made me turn around and run away from him. Luckily for me he was too slick and I couldn't keep up with him. Ultimately he was too slimy to be much of a threat.

  7. Is Slick a real name? I have to believe that anyone born with it would have the common sense to at least use an alternate for the sake of at least SOUNDING like a productive member of society. Slick just sounds like bad news.

  8. Jen, Ms. Cricket, I rest my case. (Jen, how did I know that you dated him once too?)

  15. Bwah hahahah! I wouldn't. Which is why my hubby has a nice and normal name. ;) Sorta!

  17. If his name is Slick you might as well call him Tiger or better yet Cheetah :-)

  18. Worst of all are the Slicks with the normal names... If their mothers, who raised them to be Slicks, had the good sense to name them Slick they would save us a lot of wasted time, dont you think? :). Good advice yet again Linda! Thanks :)
