Most Helpful Guy
A type is formed by our experiences, what we are naturally attracted to, and what we find compatible with ourselves. My ex was just like you and said that she didn't have a type. This annoyed me to no end because I cannot grasp how someone doesn't have a type, and I know she didn't mean it in a bad way, but it was insulting to me because I could be anyone and she wouldn't care. I could be wrong, but I honestly believe that people who don't have a type are either so desperate that they will take anyone, very inexperienced with relationships, or they have not yet figured out what they want.

You can have great qualities and be not someones type.
People having a type means that they would find themselves more compatible with another for whatever reasons.
I am like you a bit...
I am a bit more open-minded when it comes to dating.
I don't completely X someone out because they have a few things I dislike.
But some people are like that.
If you even have one quality they see as negative or they don't like (even personality trait) they would be unwilling to pursue things with you.
Some people are more picky when it comes to having a type.
Others are more open.
