Ay, manikurista?

So there I was hanging out at the house of this guy I’ve been meeting on and off for the past two years. We were watching TV on the sofa when he noticed that I had untrimmed fingernails. He then said he’d clip them and proceeded to do so, after going to his room to fetch the nail clipper. Needless to say, I was a bit embarrassed and a little self-conscious the whole time he was trimming my nails.

Now the question is, what was the reason for this sudden urge of his?

  1. He really likes me and was comfortable enough with me to not be bothered with doing something this personal? (Awww.)
  2. He’s obsessed with hygiene to the point that he imposes on other people? (Yikes!)
  3. He’s avoiding the possibility of me injuring him with scratches when we would have sex later? (Rawr!)
  4. He’s a frustrated manicurist? (Ay!)
  5. All of the above?

What do you guys think? :-)

P.S. I don’t scratch. Really.

Crazy. I think I've only done this for my dad...

Do you think he has a thing for cutting finger nails as foreplay? LOL

@Tristan, so you're your dad's manicurist? :-) And nail-clipping as foreplay? Puwede!

@Anon, you think so?

Haha. I'm not a control freak (at least I don't think so).... but I do tell people they should cut their nails when I see it needs trimming (or cut their hair, even (eewww) their nose hair. Wahaha!)

At the least? He's comfortable enough with you to tell you that you didn't trim your nails and that you wouldn't be insulted by it.

i think there's nothing wrong with it. the guy just loves you and he shows that he also cares for you even in a different kind of way. instead of being doubtful, you should be happy because someone LOVES you.

Maybe he wants a souvenir?

@Anon (Apr 12), I think he is, actually.

@Tony, good point. I indeed wasn't insulted. :-)

@Anon (Apr 14), well, I would be happy if he didn't give contradictory signals.

@kirugawa, nice!

@JL, ang creepy naman non!

Cute! He's just like Bree Van de Kamp in "Desperate Housewives." Everything just have to be neat and tidy. =P
