“I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me? Why doesn’t anyone ever pursue me?’ They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimidated.’ It must be the fame wall … It must be the circus that goes around me.

For example, how does Sarah think a woman can tell if a guy is “the one”? “He walks slow when you’re in heels — piggy-backs are a plus,” she told The Frisky. “Oh, and he waits a week or two before passing gas in front of you.”
Hmm, we’re all about dudes who are gentlemanly and don’t walk ahead of us, no matter our footwear, but we’ve never really thought about the appropriate time for a guy to start breaking wind. What we have thought a lot about is the signs that someone is not the one. Perhaps, Sarah should take some advice from us and check out the 25 Signs He’s Not The One, after the jump.
