Top 10 Tuesday: Things people love... but I don't

You know that situation where you are chatting with a group of people, and they all start raving about something they love. It's usually something that EVERYONE loves, and everyone thinks that everyone is supposed to love it. 

Well, it's a little awkward when you don't really share in their enthusiasm. That has happened to me many times. And I've learned that it's better to keep my mouth shut and nod along, than having to defend my dislike and explain why I just don't seem to love it as much as they do. 

Of course, everyone has their likes and dislikes, but sometimes you have to defend some of your dislikes a little more than others. So today, I'm going to share the things that everyone seems to love. Everyone, but me.

1. French kissing

To me, there's just something so unromantic and nauseating about two people's tongues caressing each other. Just thinking about it makes me dry heave a little. Luckily, The Boyfriend shares my sentiments on "tongue-kissing" and we work around it.

2. The iPad

Before you start picking up stones and aiming it at me, let me just say that I am indeed a huge Apple fan. I use an iMac, have an iPhone and an iPod. But the iPad? I'm not sold. Three people in my family have one, and they love it. I get it, though, because they travel a lot, and it's easier than carrying around a laptop. But why would you get an iPad at home if you can get a normal computer?

3. Rack of ribs

I don't get excited about getting food all over my hands, my arms and my face and under my nails, when eating. There's not that much meat on it. It's.Just.Too.Hard!

4. Talking on the phone

For as long as I can remember, I've always hated talking on the phone. It fascinates me how The Boyfriend can talk on the phone with his friends and family for hours. I can't do it. I can Skype, for 30 minutes max, but at least then I can see the person I'm talking to. I guess I just like to get right to the point. Which reminds me, I also despise small talk.

5. White chocolate

Believe me, this one is weird to me, too, because I LOVE chocolate and sweets in general. It's just white chocolate that I can't stand. I think it might be because I ate a huge white chocolate Easter bunny when I was five and was sick from it for days...

6. Thongs

I don't know how girls can wear thongs. They are so uncomfortable and are actually bad for your health. Sleeping in one might just be the worst thing in the world.

7. Glee

For someone who usually loves musicals, it was unexpected that I didn't like it. I've tried watching it, to see what the fuss is about and why millions of adults love it. I can't stand the singing. All.The.Time.

8. Litchi (Lychee)

I shiver just thinking about the taste of a litchi. Oh, and the texture. More shivers.

9. Cats

No offense to cat lovers out there, but I just don't like them. They are so weird; doing their own thing and probably plotting among themselves on how they'll take over the world. They creep me out.

10. The Lord of the Rings

...zzz...zzz... I tried, I truly did. I couldn't get through the first movie and decided to read the books. I couldn't get through the books, so I tried to watch the movies again. I just can't.

Do you agree or disagree with me on these? And what is something that you don't like that everyone else seems to love?


  1. Right there with you on the whole Lord of the Rings thing (Star Wars, Star Trek also Avatar) I tried 3 times, its just wayyyyy to long and boring.

    Also agree on white chocolate. Its not even real chocolate. No cocao just butter and cream.

    And I'm a total blabbering idiot on the phone, so I just avoid it.

    1. I didn't even try with Avatar... I guess I just know what I like, and what I don't like. Blue aliens; not my thing. :-/

  2. I. Hate. Talking. On. The. Phone. And my boyfriend doesn't understand it. We live together, so it's really no big deal for us, but he sometimes calls me when he has a long car trip home and he'll be asking me about my day and stuff and I'll be giving really short brief answers. He always thinks I'm in a bad mood and countless time I've told him that I just can't stand being on the phone. It has no appeal to me. Which is further fueled, like I said, by the fact that I live with my boyfriend, so why can't he just wait and get home and talk to me like normal, why does it have to be over the phone. Like REALLY? I'm just fussy, i hate phones.

    1. I'm so happy that it's not just me who hate the phone thing. I feel that it's so impersonal. I'd rather send a quick text and cut to the chase than ramble on over the phone.

      If I really want to talk to someone, I'll meet up with them or send them a long message on Facebook.

  3. I am not a massive fan of talking on the phone, I do prefer it to texting however. I am more of a face-to-face person. I have to say that I do love the occasional rack of ribs. I don't get them often. Probably that once a year I go to the Outback Steakhouse. Lol!

    Pretty much everything else I agree with. I don't understand the concept of thongs, they don't even look comfortable. I won't even go near Lord of the Rings or Glee.

    1. Gotta get those ribs at Outback! :-D And then take a shower afterwards...

  4. I also dislike I-Pads. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab but I mostly use it as an e-reader. Tablets are definitely not a replacement for the cozy, personal feeling of a desktop computer.

    I don't like thongs or talking on the phone (unless it's with my husband, when he's at work) either.

    1. Okay, maybe nobody likes thongs? But I do know some girls that do though... :-/

  5. I don't like french kissing either. I just think it's a kind of disgusting feeling.

    I don't like ribs either since I'm a vegetarian.

    I don't really like to talk on the phone either, only with people I know really well. I hate to call people I don't know. Sometimes you just have to do some calls to people you don't know but I really dislike it.

    I don't like white chocolate either and I also love chocolate! But I think white chocolate just tastes weird somehow.

    I've never understood the idea with thongs. Or obviously I know what the idea is, but I don't understand how some people can actually wear them.

    I don't really understand why everyone likes Glee either. I've seen some glimpse of it on TV but it doesn't make me interested to watch it at all.

    I've never tried a litchi so I don't know if I like it or not.

    I love cats & my own cat is named after a character in LOTR so... Those I love. But except that we seem to have a pretty similar distaste! :)

    1. I'm sure your cat is cute... and plotting world domination... LOL

  6. Aww I love litchee :(
    But I'm with you on #6 #7 #9 & oh LOTR #10 is so boring! Seriously, even I couldnt get through :/ :P
