What do you all think of “brooding” people? I had a girlfriend a while back who noted once when I as in her bedroom one night that I had a “brooding” look about me. She compared me to a former boyfriend who was a brilliant writer and former university professor who had turned into an alcoholic. He also wrote fiction. Apparently he was a brooder too.
I had no idea that I was a brooding fellow, but then we can’t see ourselves very well, and maybe it’s better that way.
You would think women would hate brooding types, but she seemed to be intrigued, fascinated and maybe even a little turned on by a dark, brooding sort of man. Sort of like he was mysterious and vaguely frightening.
She also told me that she wanted to dump another boyfriend in favor of me because he was boring. She told me that I was scary, but “scary is hot” and scary guys turned her on a lot. So one more argument in favor of running Bad Boy Game I suppose. Apparently women like scary men? Do they?
I looked up “brooding” on the Net, and this is what I came up with:
Thinking gloomily about something, ruminating anxiously or regretfully about something. A tortured soul. Thoughtful or morbidly obsessed, deeply or seriously thoughtful, persistent morbid meditation on a problem, turning something over in the mind moodily and at length, feeling sad, worried, or angry for a long time, making you feel uncomfortable or worried as if something bad is going to happen, deep in thought.
