We all know some simple life/love rules like “exes are off-limits” and “always accept a compliment”, now I’m throwing in “Don’t mix love and ghost-hunting” to the adage pile. OK, so this rule will probably only apply to me (and perhaps Jennifer Love Hewitt) but it’s still the truth.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But when you watch scary movies with a guy, or go on roller coaster rides, the adrenaline makes you bond with them.” YEAH. EXACTLY. Heightened situations sometimes accelerate the swooning process, so now you’ve got adrenaline helping your hormones along. Look, my hormones don’t need the help, there’s only so much willpower in me that keeps me from grabbing a certain someone’s backside when he’s not looking. Or his frontside. It’s madness I tell you.
Also, think about the last time you were scared to death. You nearly peed your pants, didn’t you? How is peeing your pants attractive? I don’t want to have to wear Depends every time I go ghost-hunting and I know Billy Madison won’t be hanging around to cover for me.
Not to mention freaking the fuck out and screaming all over the place doesn’t do your looks any favors. How is this attractive?
Then there’s the whole being a chickenshit issue. I really try to man up and face the music but damn it if some days I don’t feel like walking into a haunted mental asylum. But then I have this guy with me that I’m secretly in love with him and I don’t want to seem like a sissy pants in front of him, so I have to swallow my fear and just do it. Thank goodness for the few times we both have the common sense to run away.
Add in the fact that we are usually traveling somewhere on location and I’m wearing the same smelly thing for days and my makeup’s all ruined and my hair is a mess and I lost my toothbrush days ago. Yeesh. It’s actually a wonder I’m not cracking your computer screen every week.
So there you have it, girls. If you’re ever in the situation where your love life and ghosts might collide, back away slowly. Ghosts are scary enough – you don’t need to add love into the mix.

Aint that the truth!!
Thanks for a great post and giveaway! Ummm… I’m not usually a screamer but I am a startler. something jumps out at me, I jump back, literally!
Ghosts scare me.
Spiders scare me
Fire scares me – I was in one when I was small – no memories of it, but apparently my subconscious remembers.
I have to admit really large spiders scare me. There is something to be said about multiple legs and multiple eyeballs!!
I am afraid of fire and thunder – I know that logically the thunder will not harm me, but who said I had to be logical LOL Thank you for the awesome sharing and giveaway opportunity 🙂
I can’t stand enclosed spaces or being in the dark alone. Thanks for the great giveaway. 😉
