I was hanging out with a male friend last night, talking about nothing in particular, when the subject of a "free pass" came up. I asked him what a free pass was, thinking maybe I was gonna get a free concert ticket or something....yes, I am that naive!!!, and he told me that a free pass was a list of people (usually celebrities or people that you will probably never meet in real life) that you would be willing to "hook up" with. Ok...........
Theoretically, your current boyfriend/girlfriend is aware of your free pass list and if you were to happen to be in a situation where a person on your free pass list were to proposition you, you would have "permission" from your significant other to be with a person on your free pass list. The free pass list can't include people you are around in your everyday life..... that could really screw up a relationship, but it is a way of sharing your fantasies with your significant other in a harmless way.
I was willing to play along, so I told him to give me a few minutes to think about it. I asked him about his list, and what his girlfriend thought about the names on his list. His list (in no particular order) included: Jessica Alba, Vanessa Minillo, Scarlett Johannsen (no comment!!), Rachel Bilson, and Angelina Jolie. I kinda had to laugh beacuse his list was all over the place, but hey, to each his own. He said his girlfriend has given him complete permission to fullfill his fantasy if the opportunity ever occurred (like it ever would!!)
After giving it great thought, I have come up with the following people that I would put on my "free pass"list. The reasons these people are on my list are varied, I can't even say exactly what attracts me to them but they all have are kind of similiar physically. Here they are in no particular order........
- Dane Cook- He is cute in a boy next door type of way. He is tall and has a little bit of meat on him. I like some muscles on a guy, especially arms and shoulders, but I am not into guys that are too"built." I get his style of humor and he looks like he would make a great father. There is not a girl out there who does not love him!!!
- Dr. Drew Pinsky- Something about his extreme intelligence attracts me. He is smart but he looks like he has a sense of humor too. He also has great arms lurking underneath those button down shirts that he wears.
- John Rzeznik- Love the dimple and the bad boy image. He seems intelligent and fun and "with it." Also has great arms!!
- Adam Levine- He looks like he could be a total jerk, but he is still cute. Prefer him with the shaved head look.
- Marcus Schenkenberg, Jeff Pickel, Brian Kehoe- Yes, they are all model "eye candy." I do think Jeff and Brian are funny and Brian looks like he would be pretty loyal and a romantic.
So, after revealing my list to my friend, all I got was a snort and a laugh and the words "it figures." He did not understand my list just as I did not understand his. I guess there is someone out there for everyone.
