The Perfect 10: Craig

Music:  Average Man - Turin Brakes

I know that Craig isn’t the one for me and as horrible as it sounds, he has served his purpose.  I really don’t think that the sex side of meeting someone new is going to be an issue now, all thanks to my dalliance with him.

I also didn't set out to match Craig up against my Perfect 10 list, but as it seems that I’ve been considering his merits all day I might as well...

1. Looks

Craig is as fit fit FIT as a bag of chips and twice as sexy. So it’s a tick in this category.

2. Sense of humour

Sort of. We had a bit of a laugh but more often than not it was when we were hideously drunk.  The rest of the time it was really awkward and I wanted to set fire to my hair just to give us something to talk about.   No point here.

3. Being Down to Earth

Craig works in the building trade and is very down to earth so it's a yes here.

4. Loyalty and Trust

No idea as I didn’t get to know him well enough.

5. Kindness

Er, no.  He drops a point as he didn’t seem to care at all about how I was feeling during my Grandma’s funeral.  Wanker.

6. Have a strong sense of family

He works for the family business and he still lives with his parents.  LOSER.  But that'll be a yes in this category...

7. Solvency

Craig has a job but still lives chez Mummy and Daddy, so I’m not sure where he falls in this category. Maybe half a point?

8. Ambition and a drive to succeed

He did tell me that one day he will take over his Dad’s business, so it's a tick in this box. 
Still, it would be nice if Craig had the ambition to break out of the shackles of his family and strike out on his own. 
When I write everything about him living with his parents/working with his Dad/aspiring to take over the family business, to me it's starting to sound like some f*cked up Lancastrian version of the Waltons. 
Goodnight Craigy-kins!  Goodnight Jim-Bob!
Kill me.  Kill me now.

9. Different interests

He likes cars and motor sport and doesn’t like rugby, so it’s a yes for different interests.

10. Romance

Not really.  Nope, not at all.

Marks out of 10: 5.5


Overall a bit of an average contender but not a bad starter for ten.

Craig is VERY strong in the looks department and is very physically attractive, but he is lacking in so many other areas.

I fancied the arse off him physically, but we just didn’t click.  And he was a bit shit in bed.
Still, I don’t think 5.5 is a bad score to start with though, especially as he was supposed to be a fun fling.

And on the most part he was...

All that aside, I can't believe the year is flying by so quickly and we're already into March!

Still there was a very big positive to come out of my first dalliance as a single girl:  I know I've definitely still got it!

Onwards and upwards people, onwards and upwards...


  1. Wow you are a tough judge. I know what you mean about fancying someone but not clicking - it can really suck all the fun out of what is supposed to be a fling...

  2. If you can't be honest on your own blog, when can you? :D

    Just goes to show, looks aren't everything! Being good in bed and not living with your parents....could have knocked yourself up a couple points there, Craig-y boy ;)

    Have you ended things yet? Or is this your pre-dump post?

  3. Cute Boy was super super fit as well, but turned out to be a bit of a wanker too. My theory is that super fit men are assholes, and I'm waiting to be proven otherwise.

    Good luck in your search for the perfect 10! Let me know if he has a cute, single, straight, perfect 10 brother. =D

  4. I wish I could be as practical. I like how you're looking at it so sensibly. Too bad he's such a hottie. Worse that he's got that speaking problem.

  5. Wow, it's cool to know im not the only one with the list of 10. I should feel one out for fun on "my guy".
    Sucks he has no sympathy, that made me real mad, it's like, how hard is it ? Also no sense of humor ? What I got out of this so far is that he is hot, down to earth, awkward mama's boy. You deserve better

  6. I like your list. I think I should go and make one now!

  7. I always get this - I'm so sexy that girls can't always see my other qualities. Are you sure that's not what's happened here?

  8. Really Fishy? Really? I think we might need to get a second opinion from Rapunzel! ;-)

    Life Begins - I don't think I'll have to dump Craig. After the weekend of disasters I haven't been in touch with him and he's not got in touch with me. Result! Sometimes radio silence is the best way to break up I think! Well, when it's a fling at any rate...

    Kate C - Are you talking about yourself and Jamie? Eek, I hope it all works out for you.

    Serenityville - Yeah I can be stupidly practical sometimes. There's no point dwelling on something that wasn't meant to be though, right?

    Ca88andra and Jassy - Thanks!

    The Girl - I'll be sure to pass on your details if I find someone for you! Got to find someone for myself first! ;-)

  9. A tough list to measure up to!
    I'm looking forward to reading about the next adventure.

  10. But what are you going to do it he DOES call you again??? Would be interesting....

  11. I'm glad Craig is out of the picture - totally went off him the last couple of posts. Looking forward to your next adventure! x
