Ditto to what Steve and Shamou said.
And yes, bulldogs are cute.
What sort of girlfriend are you looking for? Someone funny? Cute? Blond? Short? Smart?
Figure out what will attract that sort. I love animals, so how Slamhot Boy interacts with his kitties was really important to me. I love music, so talking about push pull technique in drumming was really fun for me. I like working out, so I liked that Slamhot did. We both watch our diets but enjoy food. See where this is going?
Also, Slamhot was definitely my friend before my lover. I can't pinpoint that line between creepy and endearing, but it's there.
