If you get my name, I'll be really angry!
« on: March 08, 2010, 12:30:02 PM »
I was casually seeing a guy while I was at uni (he wasn't a student), and mentioned that I was planning to finally get the tattoo that I'd wanted for a number of years and was deciding on the design.

His response?  "Okay, but if you get my name or initial or something I'll be really angry!"

Um.....  WAIA!

What a bizarre response!  Are you sure he wasn't joking?

Yeah - he was serious.  Odd, huh?

Joking was my first thought, as well. If he really thought some girl he'd been casually seeing for a few weeks was going to get his name tattooed (how do you conjugate that?) on herself i can only imagine he was looking toward many future disappointments.

...i bet he thought that song was about him, too...

My response? "What kind of girls do you usually date?"  ::raised eyebrow::

I don't know if I would've been able to contain my laughter. 

I certainly wouldn't have been able to contain the snarky reply ... that is if I could get anything past the jawdrop!

The reply would probably be something like "Naw, I was planning to get the names of our future children -- you like Emma and Austin, right?"

or

"My tattoo is something I want to enjoy for the rest of my life, not someone I can't even remember in 5 years!"

Sorry, Evil Danismom escaped and is on a rampage...

Sounds like he's had a bad experience with regards to this. Maybe there is an ex somewhere with his name on her??

Or he has hers?

I really think I'd have a hard time not laughing and saying something along the lines of "Don't flatter yourself!"  It would probably also be the last time I'd go out with a guy who thinks I have so little sense.

Yeah, my first thought was, "Why kind of girls have you dated before?!"

I have a tattoo. I love tattoos. But, I don't even think I would get my husband's name put on my body anywhere (If I had a husband). Even when I was considering a tattoo dedicated to my mom, it was all symbolic, and not her name.

My thoughts are that either he was thinking you were *way* more into this relationship that you probably were, or he's been bitten before.

If his name was, for example, Barry, say "Why on Earth would I want to get "Garry" emblazoned across my rear?"  >:D

Unless it also had his social security number why would he care? He isn't the one with an ex's name printed on his body - which is probably pretty awkward with her next boyfriend if they don't share the same name.
